Who needs other people when you can love YOURSELF?
Deputy Editor Youngweon Lee pens an ode to the Columbia Sadgirl. This post is for you, you Birkenstock-and-vintage-mom-jeans-wearing, sleep-deprived, disillusioned, Sappho-loving, probably-pseudo-literary Columbia Sadgirl. It’s a shoutout to every girl at Columbia who is Sad, with a capital S. Who identifies herself as a Sadgirl in whatever shape or form. It doesn’t matter how Sad […]

In Butler from 6-10 pm tonight, Stressbusters will be in Butler to give free neck and back rubs! We know that your nose will be in […]
We admit it — we’ve been playing hard to get. For weeks, we tagged our posts “Bwog needs a baby mama” looking for someone to come along and sweep us off our feet. But little did we realize, NYU Local has been brushing our ankles with a broom all year. They tweeted us nice things, […]
Last night, Bwog senior staff writer Ross Chapman sat in on the semester’s second CCSC meeting. The main discussion was one that the student body has been increasingly pushing for: productive ways to increase and sustain mental health on Columbia’s campus. Columbia College Student Council dedicated Sunday’s general body meeting to mental health, and encouraged students to […]
Fall break is finally here! As much as we would love to hang around and report on Schapiro fires and Prezbo sightings, we’ve got a country to watch crash and burn on Tuesday. Instead of refreshing our site, feel free to write Spec op-eds. Don’t worry if you’ve already graduated, it’s really not weird! At […]
This year is the fifth annual Morningside Lights Procession! Every year, community members gather and create lanterns inspired by poetry written by Pulitzer Prize winners. The workshop sessions are free, and have been taking place every day since Saturday the 17th, and will continue until this Friday, the 23rd. All materials will be provided, and […]
We refreshed and refreshed and never received your daily app! It’s okay. Between checking SSOL and picking apart Book Culture, you probably didn’t even have time to fill it out. But it’s Saturday now—no more excuses. We’ve decided to extend the deadline a week! Here’s the link to the application (you could do it while you’re in […]
Donald Trump finally admits that he believes Barack Obama was born in the United States — thanks for the validation! Now it must be true. (New York Times) Zika threat in Miami grows as the area of infected mosquitos triples. (CNN) Lady Gaga’s new album will be released in October. While the cover is just […]
Tomorrow is CU’s Activity Fair–also known as your opportunity to sign up for a bunch of clubs you will never go to. It takes place on College Walk from 12-4pm, but its not like you wouldn’t be able to find it—eager first years, balloons, and folding tables will cover every square foot of land. This […]
As we all try to get back into an academic routine, it can be difficult during shopping week. All of your classes are busting at the door with people who waited until last night to get on the waitlist. While some of us treat shopping week as an appropriate time to test out 20 different […]
Ever since a certain CC student went to Hewitt for the first time, Bwog staff has been debating the campus salad bars. The aforementioned CC senior ardently declared that Hewitt’s vegetables are, in fact, the best, while a Barnard student shot back that Ferris has a far superior vegetable selection. Apparently school affiliation had no […]
Dear Bwog, These past few weeks, a lot has been going on in my life and I want to speak to someone about it. I called Furman but they put me on a wait list for an appointment and told me I probably won’t get one before the end of the semester. Are there other resources […]
This weekend, NOMADS is presenting “Grieving for Fish,” a new play by Elyse Pitock, BC ’15. Bwog chatted with her about the show, which will be playing at the Glicker-Milstein Theatre tonight and tomorrow at 8 pm. The process for this production began 8 months ago. Pitock reached out to Columbia and Barnard first-year students […]
This past week Bwog received an email from a fellow student in need of a little guidance: Can you write about CPS and mandatory leaves of absence? I’m nervous that if I talk to them about depression related issues, I will have to leave school. Bwog cares immensely about student wellness and mental health on campus, which […]
