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.
This Bwogger witnessed an epic faceoff in their Postmodernism class yesterday, which led them to question: if “blackberry” means “I love you,” what does kicking a cockroach out of a classroom mean?
Editor in Chief Isabel Sepúlveda provides the Columbia community with an actual email she sent to an actual professor teaching an actual class that’s guaranteed to get you off the waitlist. Here’s to your soon-to-be
Senior Staff Writer Jake “Jake-Luc Godard” Tibbetts woke up before 10:00 am on only one occasion over winter break: Monday, January 13, when, at 8:18 am EST, John Cho and Issa Rae announced the nominees
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. The CU Garden Party was a refreshing change of pace from the usual Columbia social scene. Instead of the crowded, dark aesthetic of a dorm party, the Garden Party was spacious and […]
You can dine in high style at little expense. Or at least as Michelin (the ones who assign stars) would have us believe with their new list of the best New York meals under $40. (Business Insider) Air conditioning units will occasionally fall on you. But only occasionally so you probably shouldn’t worry. The last death was […]
While you’re sweating over data entry and filling coffee cups in your summer internship, you might look back at those strange, wild memories of Butler Library dominating the four a.m. sky as you walked from drudgery to sleep and pine for a return to the college life. Don’t worry. We’re here to give you every minute […]
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
So you can revel in the anticlimactic glory that is our beloved Morningside, Bwog catches a few last-minute minutia that might have made all the difference to your morning coffee/mental state during this darkest night, finally lifting. `
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, […]
