Personally, we think it’s better when college magazines start blogs. But you know those NYU kids. From the Observer: NYU Young Media War Rages On: The young folk of NYU Local—the pirate NYU news publication/blog, as opposed to the officially-mandated NYU publication, Washington Square News—is going to wage further war on its rival by putting […]
From the Department of New and Quirky Campus Blogs comes Dicks at Columbia (http://dicksatcolumbia.tumblr.com). Don’t worry, it’s totally SFW: the blog is a “celebration of the phallus in all its forms” on this undersexed campus, documenting the proprietor’s near-anthropological quest to find and photograph every wang at our apparently wang-obsessed school. You can help, too! […]
Have you ever wanted to get into the mind of a Columbia ID checker, to see what it’s like behind that desk? A new blog, The Red Zone (http://showyourid.blogspot.com/), offers just that opportunity. It chronicles the tales of an Avery General Assistant, known to readers only as “GA,” since the author never mentions his/her name. […]
Photo Via Doctorsimcha.com In anticipation of the Hebrew awesomeness slated to invade Miller tonight (tickets are available at the TIC), Bwog would like to officially welcome the Columbia/Barnard Hillel blog onto the internet scene. The blog seems like an aggregation of Jewish events in and around Morningside Heights as well as photos from said […]
Why didn’t you think of this first? Six CC ’09 gentlemen who met on their pre-Orientation COOP trip have started a blog from their EC townhouse. Designed with a bright red hue to echo their townhouse’s decoration (“as if McDonald’s built a ski chalet”). Casting reformed gender norms to the wind, the group has chosen […]
According to an article by everyone’s favorite authority on colleges, US News and World Report, Columbia was nipped ever so slightly by Harvard this year for the top honor of being the university whose name appears most in global print and electronic media. Hey, at least we trounced the rest of the Ivies, as Yale, […]
As we all know Columbia loves controversy. We also know that Columbia loves Mexican food. Thankfully Morningside Heights entrepreneurs have recognized this and consequently the neighborhood offers plenty of Mexican eateries. So many in fact that the recent increase in Mexican restaurants has caused quite a controversial and competitive commotion. Where can a student find […]
Our new friends at this J-School blog have spotted a TV schedule for tonight’s forum on one of the trailers on Broadway. Industrious aspiring journalists that they are, they have summarized the preliminary order of events. What you need to know: The candidates will not speak until 8 p.m. (McCain) and 9 p.m. (Obama) respectively. […]
With Spec on summer vacation for over a week now, it’s time to check in with that other journalistic medium: the internet. And now, a closer look of what some of the blogs on the sidebar have been publishing. Roar Lions Roar: Columbia athletics, the high school years The Phlog: Diners go Greek The Blaaag: […]
Tipster Mariela Quintana, who volunteers at Park Slope’s 826nyc (a tutoring endeavor of Dave Eggers & Co., and previously featured on Bwog for its Superhero Supply Store), was kind enough to pass along a link to a new blog, “Fish Slaps A Baby,” started and run by their elementary-school-age students. Here you’ll read on such […]
According to Wikipedia, a phlog is a “type of daybook, similar to a blog, but run off a Gopher protocol server,” although the word may also refer to a photoblog. According to Columbia’s Philolexian Society, the phlog is a “blog of awesometude” on which various philolexians post poems, essays, and random thoughts. It’s run through […]
According to The Spine, a blog written by New Republic editor Marty Perez, Joseph Massad has been denied tenure. There’s no other source on the story so far and no official word on the reasons behind the decision, but Gil Ronen of Israel National news claimed yesterday that the decision to make Nadia El-Haj a […]
The Columbia publications scene can seem oversaturated—there’s always something new on newsstands and strewn across dorm hallways. But Barnard has historically been a one-publication campus, with the Bulletin absorbing the journalistic energies of those who don’t take their writing talents across the street, or down Broadway to the Spectator. Until last fall, that is. Keondra […]
A bit of late news that was recently brought to our attention: according to the ominously-titled website House of Bnai-Haman, September 24, 2007 will now permanently be referred to as “Columbia’s Day of Shame,” which the site asks to readers to make sure “is never forgotten.” Granted, the blog was actively updated for a grand […]
Because Bwog doesn’t do hot, sandy or constantly-in-existential-danger, Iraq didn’t quite make it into our summer plans. Not so for Matt Sanchez, GS, who has been blogging out of the war-torn country for the past couple of weeks. What the hell’s gotten into the conservative activist, military man, Spec opinion writer, American studies major and […]
