It is the worst of times, and the most liminal of times. Reading week snuck up on us with a slap and here we are during finals: broken, disheartened, and yearning for summer (why is it still
1020 is turning 21! It’s a huge milestone: if 1020 were a Columbia student, he’d probably have a (slightly sad) rager in his EC townhouse, buy cigarettes legally, and film himself throwing his fake into the Hudson River. As it is, 1020 is just a bar—an inanimate object, really. Nevertheless, you and 1020 have likely made memories […]
Light a candle in your dorm tonight, because Rostam Batmanglij has left Vampire Weekend, leaving the band gutted, and perhaps artistically (un)dead. Every Columbian mourns tonight, reminded of the ephemeral nature of this material world. (Pitchfork) Maybe more bands don’t come out of Columbia because, as this noise map of the city shows, we are a staid […]
Columbia had its second annual garden party yesterday. Does anyone remember the first? Pseudo-snob Shreyas Manohar was sent to report on the scene.

Our local Citibank branch was lost to the flames in January this year, and soon replaced with an even less attractive and remarkably stealable ATM van. But much time has passed in Boringside Heights since then, including the return of The Heights to the glory of all *of age* patrons who spent significant time there during the fall semester, […]
It appears as if Halloween season is upon us, as evidenced by Morton Williams:
Morningside Heights may have spent all summer heaving great sobs of loneliness, but it isn’t about to greet newcomers and returning students with super puffy eyes. On the contrary, it’s been having quite a bit of work done. Send any minutiae we missed to email@example.com.
Whether you’re wallowing in mid-summer discontent after having caught up on all things Hulu, or discovering the god particle and stuff at your internship, we thought we’d let you know that things on our end are just as boring as you left ’em.
Be on the lookout for the February issue of The Blue & White, coming to campus this week. In the meantime, Bwog will again honor our heritage/amorous affair with our mother magazine by posting features from the upcoming issue. Such treats include a visit to the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, an investigation into Columbia’s animal testing practices, […]
