Welcome back to the Best of series in which Bwog analyzes the best in a category of chosen food product! There are few things that are as much fun and as thirst-quenching as a margarita. And after a weekend of being nice to your parents or studying for midterms, there are few things as much […]
Bwog thrives on conflict, and this week didn’t disappoint. – Hockeygate unfolds, while the world watches, rolls eyes – Tigers > Lions. But sports can still be fun! – The Dems don’t like FOX, Middle Easterners don’t like each other, and Vermont doesn’t like America – College freshmen duke it out, while SEAS freshmen…oh wait, […]
The sun is still shining, clubs are still planning, and professors can’t tell yet if you’re not doing the reading. Store up these days, my children, and revel in the trivial. – Students march for brassieres, scientific denial, and randomness – Librarians are amazing! Especially if you meet in a cozy spot outside Butler, with […]
Today, Bwog returns to its habit of reprising the week’s best content, in case you missed it, or just needed to be reminded. Settling in: dorm personas, the room you wish you had Ch-ch-ch-changes: welcoming the (temporarily blinded) Eye, giving the B-School the business (but not our business), fighting the good fight (and winning!) Culled […]
Bwog has been engaging in some self reflection of late. It’s been an amazing semester, with some highlights you definitely saw, and others you may have missed.

It is only in the heat of the housing lottery that Columbians can feel like New Yorkers. Square footage dominates conversation. Friendships end–six friends can’t fit in a suite for five.

-Now that you’ve declared your major, regret your decision for the next two years. Or, you could take the Yatrakis-approved path and concentrate. -History does not teach lessons, says Brown professor Gordon Wood. Unless of course, they’re Biblical lessons, and the history is Biblical history. -Lost on Lerner 5, we found a piece of paper, […]
-When Columbians aren’t busy drinking fermented horse milk from Kyrgystan, they’re assassinating people—people like Tao Tan. -The stars aligned, and Larry Summers got axed. He’ll no doubt rap to cope. Those Harvard faculty sure were mean to him. But according to David Horowitz, Columbia’s professors are the naughtiest around. Basically, they’re terrorists and/or communists. -You […]
–Jeffrey Sachs and Gawker partied hard with Bwoggers. Grandpa Munster couldn’t make it. Well, even without his help, we may get some action, and from a sweet-smelling gentile, no less! -Do you remember that huge fockin’ blizzard? We forgot until we saw a giant phallus in the snow. Seriously. God knows how this traumatized impressionable, […]
