Columbia and Barnard have announced a finalized academic calendar for the 2020-2021 school year. The pre-orientation programs for first-years have either been canceled or will be held online.

Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic and turmoil in the New York City juvenile detention system, the youngest suspect awaits sentencing after pleading guilty for his involvement in the death of Barnard student Tess Majors.
Even with the many Google Docs of information out there right now, there are still some resources that fall through the cracks when it comes to supporting BLM.
On Saturday night, Bwog received screenshots of messages from the GroupMe of Columbia’s chapter of Phi Gamma Delta (FIJI).
Remember American hero and proud Business School alum (’97) Roy Den Hollander? The self-described antifeminist who sued Columbia for failing to offer a “men’s studies” course? Whatever, anyway, he’s back! And he’s suing mad, specifically about ladies’ nights at bars because what else? This month, Hollander is arguing that when nightclubs offer all the ladies […]
It’s not often Bwog takes pity on the young masters of the universe of the Columbia Business School. They’re territorial with small spaces, and not terribly warm to the idea of mere undergraduates purchasing food in Uris. But still, this week is not a good week for the b-schooler. Here, observe as they stand in […]
You’ll recall Bwog reporting last week that Business School Alum and self-proclaimed “anti-feminist” Roy Hollander was suing Columbia for offering women’s studies courses. Apparently, these courses are discriminatory against men. Now, according to Bwog tipster Stephanie Quan, some Columbia women are interested in hearing his views. More specifically, the group Women in Science at Columbia […]
Roy Den Hollander (he of litigious demeanor at right), a proud business school alum (’97) and self-proclaimed “antifeminist,” is suing the University Trustees and the Institute for Research on Women & Gender for using federal aid to promote a “religionist belief system called feminism.” Women’s Studies programs, he claims, are “spreading prejudice and fostering animosity […]
Terrible news for those partial to the business school library’s wonderful study rooms: this preference is no longer an option for you, and please get out. According to a Bwog informant — and confirmed by the man who just picked up the phone at Watson library — the study rooms are going to be business-schooler-only […]
Chinese pride (at right) This afternoon at 1:00 PM. Lou Dobbs, eat your heart out. Discoveries of New Burial Plots For a mere $25,000, you can get buried at Duke. But hurry–already 200 reservations have been made. According to the Chronicle, “the one-and-a-half acre area first opened in response to requests from alumni in the […]
UPDATE, Sunday 3:10 PM: As pointed out by a commenter, news of the Business School potentially moving to Manhattanville was amply covered by the Spectator last year. The precise location is unconfirmed. The source for the Economics Department’s cancelled move to Knox Hall is an administrator in the Economics department via a student tipster; this […]
Spectator reported yesterday that the Business School’s Uris Deli has banished all forms of parental food finance: Flex, Dining Dollars, and First-Year Points are henceforth useless. It seems someone at the business school doesn’t want undergraduates clogging their territory any longer; this would also explain why professional power-lunchables (think spoiled sushi and oniony sandwiches) are […]
Item! Somewhere in between stifling the urge to can the Supreme Court and accusing reporters of treason, President Bush has tapped the Business School’s resident inflation dove, Frederic Mishkin, to fill a spot on the Fed’s seven-member board of governors. Why does this matter, besides saving the students who made that music video commiserating with […]
We knew the School of the Arts kids are talented. We’d pin the SIPA kids for some serious clowning around if they were drunk enough. But who would ever… ever… suspect the semester’s best student production would come out of the Business School. But when B-School Dean Hubbard gets passed over as Fed Chair by […]
There are free cupcakes with blue & white frosting in the little wood-panelled room adjacent to Uris Deli. Although undergrads will be kicked out, says an astute commenter. There was free barbecue out on Low steps, but the breadline extended across the plaza and you probably missed it. Sorry. You can probably still get a […]
In the spirit of wedding crashers, lonely and ambitous men from the B-School have started crashing SIPA parties–“where the wine flows and the women are beautiful” in an attempt to escape the few and relatively ugly girls of their own school. But wouldn’t these business folks have a tough time handling the liberal ladies of […]
