Since fall 2016, the marching band has been banned from holding Orgo Night, their biannual roast of all things Columbia, in its traditional location of Butler 209. Despite much back-and-forth with the administration, particularly Vice Provost and University Librarian Ann Thornton, who made the final decision to ban them, the CUMB held Orgo Night outside the next […]
While 2017 has unofficially been dragging us through the earth for the past four months, we have yet to truly be roasted. That all changes tonight—Orgo Night is finally here! Bring some water and aloe vera to Butler 209 outside of Butler, and apply to burns as needed. See you there! Orgo Night Spring 2017 […]

The first day of finals are tomorrow, which means we have a gift for you tonight. It’s not a Sweetgreen discount code, nor is it our roommate’s adderall. Instead we give you this semester’s Orgo Night script (even better than the Orgo exam answer key). Laugh, share with friends, and don’t forget to be offended. Enjoy! […]

Did you get so caught up in studying for your CC final/reorganizing your entire wardrobe (dammit, Adderall!) that you missed Orgo Night? We scoped out Butler 209 early and got a good seat just so we could bring you the recap. We walked into 209 at 11:25 last night, and it was a lot quieter […]
The Columbia University Marching band, or CUMB, just wrapped up their traditional Orgo Night performance in Butler 209 on the night before the Organic Chemistry final. If you’re finding your eyes are beginning to glaze over from studying, take a quick study break and read over the script from tonight. The band sure did CUMB […]

At Midnight Breakfast and Orgo Night, respectively! Despite some date-drama, the pre-finals breakfast will in fact be held tonight, as per tradition. Head over to LeFrak for a superhero-themed meal at 11 pm if you’re a Barnard senior, 11:30 if you’re a Barnard non-senior, and 12 if you’re a pleb. Also tonight: grab a seat […]
Traditional: Tonight, at 11:59 in Butler 209, the Marching Band will sing songs and make jokes of questionable taste. Unorthodox: An actually pretty funny promotional video from the band. Unexpected: As an extra credit project for his orgo class, Professor Campos called for original music videos. Here’s our favorite. (Click CC to turn on the captions)

To the aesthetically-challenged, consider yourself warned. Bwog suggests that those deprived of Butler eye candy just get out of Butler and ask someone on a date!
