Last Friday marked the last day you could add a class without the instructor’s permission, AKA the last day of the Change of Program Period. While there are still course selection-adjacent deadlines coming up (February 20 is the last day to drop a class for CC, GS, and Barnard students; March 22 is the same […]
Late on a weekend night, there’s only one reason that anyone would be heading up onto the bridge over Amsterdam: East Campus. But not all those who enter the lobby can get in. CC and SEAS students slide past without trouble, while others stand patiently for long minutes, sometimes even hours, until they can find […]
If you didn’t read our post heralding the arrival of Autumn yesterday, this question might serve as a seasonal shock. Well, it might serve as a shock, regardless. Fall color, after all, is so blasé—just like all the people responding “pumpkin spice”. There’s no other way to describe the complete and utter dominance of consumerism in our […]
In case you’re a first-year, a transfer, or someone with no friends at Barnard: it was announced last spring that Barnard students are now able to swipe into JJ’s as part of their meal plans. When one Bwog staff writer ventured into JJ’s last week, she overheard two Columbia students behind her in line for […]
Last night, seemingly in honor of Bacchanal’s end, every natural force came together for a wild thunderstorm. Benches were blown over. Tree branches snapped. People slept even worse than they would have with the aid of Bacch-related extreme alcohol consumption. The morning after, we woke up with some regrets about yesterday’s events. We wished some things […]
In honor of the Academy Awards happening tonight, but more importantly in honor of the Red Carpet happening before (be honest, what do you care about more?), Bwog has decided to do its second round of Oscar-related Bwog Asked. We headed to Butler to see what our fellow classmates had to say. Outside “Forever 21 tbh.” “I […]
It was due time to bring back Bwog Asked for this semester, and what better way to begin than with a topical topic. Kanye has just dropped The Life of Pablo, currently exclusively available on Tidal. So, what do students think of the new album? Do they love it? Hate it? How many students even […]
We know it’s cheesy to talk about the weather, but we’re going to do it anyway. If you’ve ventured outside in the past couple days, you may have noticed a new chill in the air. With the onset of autumn (the equinox was on Wednesday, y’all!!!), Bwog decided to get the scoop on the upcoming styles […]
Now that school has begun and Butler has resumed its identity as a safe haven for stressed out students, Bwog decided now is the perfect time to interrupt those studies on a Sunday night, in order to bring you the latest in text messaging news on campus. We snuck into Butler to investigate. What we received […]
In honor of spending the next 4 hours in Butler tonight’s Academy Awards / Oscars (which one is it?), we thought it would be fitting to ask people in and around the Butler Library area who they were wearing. From smokers to campers, here are their responses. Outside “Canada Goose. Sorry.” (we forgive you) “Columbia gear.” “Hanes sweats.” […]
While Valentine’s Day may be drifting into the past, the scratch marks on your back hickey on your neck is here to stay. Wondering if everyone else got more action than Bwog this holiday weekend, we sent staff members into Butler this evening to find out how the rest of the student body spent their V-Day. Lobby “Went to dinner with friends.” *Public Safety […]
It’s the least wonderful time of the year (again) and Bwog ventured into the depths of Butler to ask how Midterms are treating Columbia’s students. Judging by the disgruntled answers and the atmosphere of anxiety and cigarette smoke, y’all are barely hanging on. Lobby “Don’t care, not really stressed because I’m a Creative Writing major” […]
We all felt the wrath of losing an extra hour of sleep last night that we could have desperately used with the encroaching week of hell. In times of distress, it is best to know that you are not alone; everyone else is equally pissed (or happy?) In order to further make people listen to […]
This weekend of romance has come to an end. Scurrying back into their camped out spots in Butler, Bwoggers stopped to ask a few of tonight’s patrons what they did for Valentine’s Day. Hallway I went to a party at Harvard I cooked dinner and watched Blue Valentine. Realized there are more fucked up relationships […]
While Columbia may not be sending too many athletes to the Olympics, a school can dream. It boost morale and remind everyone to watch the insane figure skaters, unathletic Bwoggers hit the Butler for their daily exericse of walking up the stairs to the 3rd floor to ask the Butler patrons what sport they would […]
