On Thursday, Events Editor Julia Tolda joined Columbia Science Review’s webinar, “Decisions, Decisions: How Superstitions Drive Choice,” to learn more about the science behind superstitions and descriptive decision-making.
The Armory uptown is probably one of the best, most organized places to get vaccinated in the city. It has tons of appointment slots that open up pretty frequently. It’s also one of the most
Yes, I will miss campus and sitting in rooms learning about all sorts of things with my peers, but there are some things that I’m ready to just say goodbye to.
The 15th Annual Jeanne Clery Lecture Series on April 6 brought sex educators Bianca Laureano and Francisco Ramirez together for a conversation about sex, dating, and intimacy during the pandemic.
With the business school moving to Manhattanville, Uris Hall will soon be vacant. With no formal announcements on what the space will be used for (except that it will go to the “Arts and Sciences”), Bwog came up with some suggestions. Asian fusion dining hall Municipal airport Nordstrom Bar (to replace Cannon’s) Water park Cinema Hotel […]
Peter Thiel is a co-founder of PayPal and an early investor in Facebook. Yesterday night, he came to campus to promote his new book, Zero to One: Notes on Startups, or How to Build The Future. Armchair Analyst Kevin Chen went to see what it was all about. As an audience consisting mostly of well-dressed […]
Bwogger Britt Fossum is as competitive as they come. She competitively skates, competitively eats hamburgers, she even competitively sleeps. So when she heard about Columbia’s “Leadership in Organization” class, she knew it was her time to report. Below, Competitive Cassandra lists the top items that business majors were able to attain by trading a paper […]
Keenan Albee updates on the ongoing battle between those at the business school and those who want to go to business school. And so the battle over the Business School Library rages onward. CCSC and ESC have put forth a joint resolution affirming their support for a pilot program aimed at increasing student access to […]
A sign has appeared in Uris warning rowdy B-schoolers to keep it outside. Bwog was wondering why a similar sign didn’t exist in Butler, until we realized the obvious (and sad) answer. When you go to a school that treats its students to a kegger, you need to make sure that the library is an alcohol-free zone. When […]
Once again, Columbia Business School’s behavioral research lab is attempting to coerce students into participating in experiments with the gift of free hot chocolate. They’re stationed between Schermerhorn and Uris right now! Also: Free razors (the shaving kind, not the scooters) outside of Student Activities on the third floor of the Diana. So… if you’re […]
This summer, Columbia introduced the Financial Econ major, allowing undergrads to enroll in B-School classes (and perhaps partake in B-School bacchanalia) and inching Columbia a little closer to pre-professionalism. Today, that inch becomes a mile: the Center for Student Advising has just announced a Special Concentration in Business Management. You can apply here. The Concentration […]
That means “a motley assortment of things.” Seatbelts, everyone! Gulati says the U.S team was “capable of more” in the World Cup. Columbia is a partner in a jargon-y, confusing government project called the “NYC Media Lab.” Breaking: James Franco is self-important. He is also an artist. Joseph Stiglitz makes $109,919 a year is the […]
But only if you’re in the Law School or SIPA. Columbia’s Office of Communications and Public Affairs announced the complete list of Class Speakers today, and joining Attorney General Eric Holder are many other famous names to prop up the 22 various Class Day and Commencement ceremonies taking place between this Saturday (the B-School) and […]

After moving to the United States at 23, Yavitz earned two graduate degrees (in engineering and business) from Columbia and, after starting and managing […]
The B-schoolers aren’t the only ones effected by the recent economic downturn. It turns out undergrads are too! Instead of offering advice on how to save money, this week Bwog on a Budget returns with a special money-making feature. The long and the short of it is simple: Bwog is broke. Given our economic state, […]
We’ve been hearing a lot about Business School professors opposing the government bailing out Wall Street investment banks, but according to IvyGater Robyn Schneider, they have no problem bailing out their vending machines. They have lowered the prices of Luna Bars and Vitamin Waters so that even the poorest MBA student can afford them. The […]
Last time we checked in with our pals over at the Business School, things weren’t looking too hot. Since today was the first good day in a long, long time, Bwog headed over to Uris when the stock market closed this afternoon to see what we could find. B-Schoolers were clustered around the televisions in […]
Remember that subprime mortgage-induced liquidity crisis and the subsequent slight dip in the markets as a result of the bailout plan being rejected? Us too. Prior to Monday’s rejection of the $700 billion plan, a letter was sent by economists around the country urging Congress not to adopt the plan set forth by Treasury Secretary […]
