Staff Writer Camille “Columbia Cookie Connoisseur” Sensiba applies her years of cookie knowledge in order to best recreate those fine free(ish) cookies— chocolate chip, but did that even need to be said?
CCSC was a blast this week, with a guest appearance from GSSC, VP Communications’ enthusiastic cursing, and an Among Us celebration!
With midterms (mostly) over and finals yet to start, I took on my biggest Cooking With Bwog challenge yet. (Previously, I have Eaten My Way Through the Core.) Follow along as I recount four perilous
Takes absolutely forever. By forever, we mean about a month, which still seems like an excessively long time. Facilities seems to only work in the early hours of the morning, and it seems to us that the whole thing could get done in about four or five days of consistent labor, perhaps even sometime after finals.

This bold and beautiful Earth Day got Bwog wondering: how does PrezBo measure up to the judging green eye of environmentalists? We decided to dust off the old math textbook and do some calculations of our own. Just how much CO2 does PrezBo emit as he drives along the Columbia campus? Assumptions: PrezBo travels back and forth […]
Ever wonder how much you’re actually “sticking it to the man” when you grab a few extra supplies on your way out of the dining hall? Maybe not, but we went ahead and investigated it for ourselves. Read on to find out the extent of Bwog’s math skills as well as how much of your […]
By now you’ve probably heard about Columbia’s issues with Nutella. As campus comes to terms with the fact that we’re all apparently hoarders, the Nutella story continues to grow. Our chocolatey addiction and its exorbitant cost has received a surprising amount of attention, causing us at Bwog to wonder: how much of this is really […]

In this installment, we calculate how much money you can “read back” in free New York Times (and by “read,” we obviously mean “do the crossword/KenKen and then blithely flip […]
As you may have noticed, we’ve been doing “science” lately in order to procrastinate actually doing anything, ever. So far, we’ve told you what percentage of the Student Life Fee you can drink back, and what percentage you can poncho-back. In this installment, we use our fancy back-of-the-envelope skillz (you can’t prove it’s on a […]
Last week, Bwog calculated exactly how much of his or her student life fees a Columbia student could drink back at Lerner Pubs. This week, Bwog has found another source of free items (and use for Frontiers) to take back a few more of those student life dollars. B-of-the-E Assumptions (based on Google) There are […]
Paying fees kind of sucks. Drinking free alcohol is awesome. Lerner Pub, an event put on by student council, reconciles the two by using part of the elusively distributed Student Life fees to provide free beer to seniors several times each semester. Because Bwog is a Liberal Artist and we like to show off our hard-earned […]
