Welcome back from winter break! While the days of relaxing in warm and sunny places or skiing in fresh snow are gone, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy yourself in the city during the winter.
Good morning Columbia! As homework begins to pile up and you realize the semester is actually, really, 100% starting, know that Bwog is here for you when you can’t waste your entire day reading the
Here, Bwog generously provides a closely-held recipe for Russian Tea (which neither comes from Russia nor contains tea), and it’s the perfect Beverage-in-Mug to warm you the hell up.
This Bwogger witnessed an epic faceoff in their Postmodernism class yesterday, which led them to question: if “blackberry” means “I love you,” what does kicking a cockroach out of a classroom mean?
Editor in Chief Isabel Sepúlveda provides the Columbia community with an actual email she sent to an actual professor teaching an actual class that’s guaranteed to get you off the waitlist. Here’s to your soon-to-be
Senior Staff Writer Jake “Jake-Luc Godard” Tibbetts woke up before 10:00 am on only one occasion over winter break: Monday, January 13, when, at 8:18 am EST, John Cho and Issa Rae announced the nominees
New York City is packed with amazing culture and inspiring art, but sometimes it’s difficult to break the Morningside-bubble and experience it all first-hand. “Where Art Thou” is a weekly guide to interesting and notable lectures, events, and performances for the literary/musically/theatrically-inclined on campus. On Campus: Wednesday through Saturday, head up to the Lenfest Center […]
On Saturday night, Columbia Ballet Collaborative held their fall performance at the Ailey Citigroup Theater in west midtown. Internal Editor Sarah Kinney and staff writer Elle Ferguson (both of whom are ballet-ers themselves) attended the performance to see what they had in store. What they found was an enticing and experimental showcase of ballet in all its forms. […]
On Sunday afternoon, uncultured freshmen Jordan and Abi, who know nothing about ballet but were excited nonetheless, journeyed all the way to 60th Street to watch the Columbia University Ballet Ensemble perform Swan Lake. Hear what they have to say. After aimlessly wandering around in arctic temperatures, trying to find the Manhattan Movement and Arts Centre, we […]
This past Saturday night, Bwogger, Bella Tincher, decided to venture down to Riverside Theater to see the Columbia University Ballet Ensemble’ production of Sleeping Beauty.

New York-based ballerina Misty Copeland (Principal with American Ballet Theatre), graces the March pages of Harper’s Bazaar with recreations of famous Degas dancer works of art. (Harper’s Bazaar) A few blocks south, old phone booths were replaced with newer, soon-to-be WiFi-equipped phone booths that still look old. Seems fake but ok. (NY Times) If you […]
Here at Bwog, we’re always looking to immerse ourselves in the buzzing display of on-campus culture, whether that be news, theatre, or dance. This is how we ended up spending our Thursday night at the Columbia University Ballet Ensemble’s rendition of Cinderella, running for one night only in the Roone Alredge Auditorium. I’m notorious for […]
Well actually, we can’t, but Columbia Ballet Collaborative can. Their new video, featuring Kaitlyn Gilliland and James Lasky, is amazing and should be watched. Choreographer Gus Reed has outdone himself. Unfortunately, CBC’s performances for this semester have passed, but they will be having another show in February. In the meantime, they offer free ballet classes every […]
