The USenate committee confidentiality proposal will be debated this Friday.  PrezBo will weigh in. The city hates your metal gates.  Except those like the ones over dorm windows. Xavier Sala-i-Martin does not have a tailor in the US.  Nor can you buy his jackets. Surprise! Cab drivers don’t care about bicyclists. More evidence in the […]

Sean Zimmermann reports from last night’s meeting. Perhaps inspired by Nixon’s success, the Senate, according to Senator Rajat Roy, plans to keep all committee records secret for fifty years. The only records that would remain public would be plenary meeting information, and all information from the budget, IT, external affairs, Manhattanville, and other committees would […]

Sean Zimmerman reports. The Engineering Student Council held its inaugural meeting with the new, almost-uncontested freshman class council, as well as new University Senator Cherie Meyer.  Bathabile Mthombeni from Columbia’s Ombuds Office opened the meeting. Baffled readers might ponder what branch of Columbia’s bureaucratic web the “Office” represents — perhaps another dubiously named den of […]

After receiving an anonymous tip, Bwog’s detective squad found a new reason for excitement for local bike enthusiasts – Community Board 7 has officially approved the Dept. of […]

   Image via Examiner.com The CU Bartending Agency doesn’t seem to be running as smoothly as its sister operation across the street.  Gender (and web-design skill) differences aside, the concept is the same, but now a message on CU Bartending’s homepage alerts “Valued Columbia Bartending Agency Clients” that the agency continues to be “unable to […]

The Blue and White’s February/March issue is now online! From the issue: Columbia and internet start-ups: two tastes that don’t go well together. Remember, Hitch did go to Columbia… Memories of far-flung homes, including Jack Daniel’s in Tennessee and guns in San Antonio. If only bureaucrats liked the idea of going undercover… And: a church without […]
