Samwise Gamgee, greatest friend in the world and gardener extraordinaire gives us a speech to uplift us in the darkest of times
It is a cold hard fact that students forget what they learned in school over summer vacation…but winter break is shorter and so we must remember more of what we learned, right? Right??
It’s the first Friday of the semester! Take a break from obsessively rearranging your schedule to catch up on global and local news with Bwoglines.
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.
Happening in the World: There has been an influx of French citizens moving to the Plateau-Mont-Royal neighborhood of Montreal in recent years, transforming the area into a French enclave with Parisian accents and traditional restaurants.

Columbia is currently tied with Yale for first place; the Bulldogs […]
Champion of the sporting life Ross Chapman went to a softball game and lived to tell the tale, sustained only by fevered visions of you, dear reader.

Catch the run-down from Bwog super sports fan Max Rettig. Baseball: The Lions won both games against Harvard on the power of offense, with 12-6 and 8-2 wins. In […]
After the basketball team lost last Wednesday, BwogSports became depressed. All good things, like the Lions’ historic season, must come to an end, though. Today, that sadness turns into happiness and hopefulness. As Major League Baseball begins, and Columbia baseball and softball begin Ivy League competition, Max Rettig brings you an update on Columbia’s spring […]
As “spring” begins and Columbia baseball starts its season, we can look forward to a changing tone in the school’s year. Beyond that basketball continues to own and things are looking good. Gladly we have maximally effective sports commentator Max Rettig to provide coverage. The Columbia baseball team opened its season in sunny and warm […]
As registration gets closer, Bwog gets more nervous about what PE class to take. So we set to work immediately to narrow down the Sweet 16. Round Two Results: Ok well we’re running out of space on this piece of paper but we’ve already determined that doing this by hand was the shittiest idea we’ve […]
After months of receiving responses like “All information being provided is included in the release that was sent” (Laurence Bolotin), “It would be inappropriate for anyone from our Department to comment” (Athletics, full email after jump), and “you’re on Bwog I’m not gonna tell you anything, assface” (all our friends), we finally got an email […]

The latest issue, available this week around campus, is a cornucopia of delights: an interview with Dean Peter Awn; the quixotic quest for a Quidditch team; and a reflection on Columbia’s recent media malaise.

It’s kind of hard to be thankful for Columbia at the end of November. Finals and papers loom, everyone suddenly remembers what school is like when it’s cold, and you’re just waiting for that “oh shiiiiit” moment the Monday you get back from break. We’re happy to be away this weekend, too, but we figured […]
