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.
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.
Bitches are going crazy with exams already, as this board found in 719 Hamilton indicates. Words aren’t deep enough.
This survival journal has been discovered in a dorm lounge, reminding us of the apocalyptic nature of this specific finals season. Despite losing our collective mind over (what is, essentially) this silliness of tests, it is comforting to see mention of other humans in this note, so at least the writer is not alone and […]
As classes end and real studying begins, it is easy to get stuck in your head. Especially when you’ve been doing readings all day. Seemingly innocuous boards turn into something much more significant as the layers of meaning come to life and confound through what you learned in Psych 101. After all: Life is the same. […]
Have an issue on your mind? There’s no better place to express it than on a blackboard, and no better means than with a piece of chalk. In the defense of the accused, it is hard not to be annoying around people who remember the third-grade skill of writing in cursive—we’re secretly jealous. The following […]
Spotted on a board in the CS lounge: the only points system you’ll ever need. We love a good pun as much as the next person, and the highly specific last category, “missed train,” keeps the stakes high. In case you’re having trouble reading: Sentiments: Laid off | -2 Got laid […]
At Columbia, students are taught to challenge each other’s ideas and deeply evaluate the validity of their own beliefs and thoughts. That being said, we can’t really think of anyone who would disagree with the statement below, found in Hamilton 707. Speaking of sex finals, you may have noticed by our new poll that we’re […]
Just long enough for our collective heavy eyelids to close but not long enough for us to repay the egregious sleep-debt we’ve accumulated in the first half of the semester, fall break has left us in a funk. This twilight realm somewhere between lounging and working is reflected in these two boardhops. Overseen in Intro to Comparative Ethnic Study: […]
There are artists among us! This amazing combination of the Beast, a stick-figure and a strange fellow in the top corner. Be like the Beast, and tell your midterms, “CHALLENGE DENIED.” Can anybody make sense of this? Tell us in the comments! Tableau Columbia by Daniel Sims SEAS ’13
Bwog came upon a well-woven wonder on Carman 9, when we saw this rug stretching from wall to wall. According to the blackboard, it was Liz’s birthday. And she got a rug! Maybe. The icy white cinder blocks of Carman just got a little warmer. You go, freshlings!
