This past Thursday, the Columbia School of Nursing’s Center for Research on People of Color (CRPC) hosted Dr. Amadou Gaye, the second speaker of their Anti-Racism Speaker Series, to discuss his research on the relationship between
Want to decorate your dorm? Afraid of commitment? Halfway through the semester without doing anything for your room? You’ve come to the right place.
On Wednesday, February 24, the Columbia University School of the Arts held a dialogue with writer and cultural critic Lewis Hyde.
Way back before the hurricane, a feisty character from BoredatButler fliered campus with posters of Operation Ivy League images, inviting the community to question the return of two groups that stirred much public shame less than two years ago. Bwog met with the anonymous mastermind behind “Operation Recall,” and learned more about the motivation behind […]
A band of mysterious vigilantes just swept through the ref room posting pictures of naked (“nude” for you sophisticated Art History major you!) people. It turns out they are leftover drawings from Artist Society’s weekly life-drawing classes. They’re there for the taking, but we’re obviously all watching you, so good luck! But wait! There’s more […]
In case you’ve been in Butler recently (though really, there’s no need for such rash behavior this early on in the semester), you may have noticed the new graphic novels exhibition in the 3rd floor display cases. The exhibition is designed to showcase Butler’s graphic novel collection, which apparently has over 1300 titles. It also […]
Because Bored@Butler – that great giant of anonymous heckling, hookups, and hate – finally got tired of being splattered with your blather. Since yesterday afternoon, visits to the site yield only a message from the site’s creator/moderator, Jonathan Pappas CC ’06, lamenting the “hate speech” and “racist comments” (read: trolls) that have caused him to […]
Okay, so you have been in Butler for three days straight, living off Cup Noodle and the occasional funny YouTube videos that your bored friends have been sending you. But the pseudo-soup, dramatic prairie dog and ‘I’m on a Boat‘ are just not cutting it anymore. What is a poor finals studier to do? Bwog […]
Butler corresponent Sara Vogel breathlessly reports the following: Around 11 PM, in 209 Butler, the following Dramatic And Exciting Events Occurred: A book fell to the ground. A bunch of students stood up and pointed finger guns at each other, as if holding everyone hostage. They all pointed their fingers and then said “bang” and […]
From the “Not Again” Department: Bored@Butler has internal competition. For those of you holed up in Purgatory Butler last week for midterms, Bwog’d bet that you saved a tab in your browser for Bored@Butler (boredatbutler.com). The site is an anonymous message board for Columbia students stuck in the library to post their thoughts. According to […]
Midterms are here and procrastination season is in full swing, so Bwog wants to help you make the most (make the least?) of your wasted time. We’ve created a bingo game for everyone studying in Butler to play. The game board is filled with 25 of Butler’s most common annoyances and quirks around exam season. Everyone is eligible—simply […]
Bwog just received the following Shocking Report from Lecture Hop editor Pierce Stanley, who’s currently staked out in Butler: “There is a pigeon in the reference room right now, flying around trying to get out and walking alongside the books on the walls. Everyone is sort of watching and laughing.” Quickly! What should we name […]
Too much to sift through on YouTube? Life’s hard. Bwog’s here to help. There’s nothing as bad as being in Butler on a Saturday night. But, instead of wasting your study break tonight on another disappointing episode of SNL, Bwog suggests checking out Sarah Dooley’s (BC ’11) delightful YouTube series, AndSarah. Sarah’s face may be […]
Boredatbutler is back, but it’s not just for Butlerites anymore. A while ago, founder Jonathan Pappas, CC ’06, relaunched the site as BoredatColumbia, in conjunction with duplicate sites at a whole host of not-quite-as-bored schools across the country. Recently, he added listings, which may just fill the void of Dogears and supplement Facebook and Craigslist […]
Taking the tempera to the walls of McIntosh just wasn’t enough to satisfy a (few) vandal(s). A tipster alerted Bwog to the brightly colored trails currently on the scaffolding at the south side of Butler Library. The tipster speculated students (who else?) could have heaved paint out of the top floor windows. Bwog is unsure […]
Spec is only running Monday and Wednesday on this sunny, gloriously action-packed midterm week. So in the absence of our usual morning recap, we present this motley roundup of completely unrelated miscellany… Behold the latest email from the CC ’09 class council, proving to seniors, perhaps, that they don’t have it so bad. The missive begins […]
