The nationwide Sunrise Movement, which has organized scores of young people into taking action and demanding legislation to fight climate change, is encouraging Columbia students and faculty to strike tomorrow to show their support for
John Henry Coatsworth, the Provost of Columbia University, will resign from his position on June 30, 2019, according to an email sent out by University President Lee Bollinger early this morning.
Ahh, yes, the elusive single. Need your private time? Scarred by getting sexiled in Carman? Internal editor and proud resident of a McBain single Zoe Sottile tells you how it’s done.
Engineering Student Council met last night for a very brief meeting, hoping that all the council members could spend their valuable time on the midterms preceding Spring Break. Compared to the explosive and controversial CCSC meeting
Recently, the Columbia University Sailing Team was sent a concerned email from a CC ’60 alumnus requesting to unsubscribe from the team’s mailing list (see photo below). This brave soldier inspired us, as a collective alumnus of midterm exams, to speak up as well.
Remember when Vampire Weekend released “Harmony Hall” last month, allowing all of us Mohi-tians to briefly step away from the course notes and Blue Java pastry bags littering our Butler desks and, for the most fleeting of moments, take part in a glamorous dream world of – gasp – celebrity?
Why is this year’s Glass House Rocks theme….so sad?
You scream, I scream, we all scream because of the seemingly endless numbers of little quarter-sheet flyers that clubs and organizations at Columbia feel the need to slip under our doors. Because we here at Bwog are for the people and not for the corporation, we came up with some fun and useful ideas for […]
Happening in the World: El Salvador has a new mayor – one not supported by the two parties traditionally dominating the country’s politics. Nayib Bukele, the 37-year-old ex-mayor of San Salvador, built his campaign around his identity as a young alternative to previous military-backed regimes. (The Washington Post) Happening in the US: In news relevant to Bwog’s wonderful new sports editor, […]
It’s probably been a hot minute since you did your laundry. Maybe less a hot minute, and more of a hot year. Yes, finals season is almost over, but you’re down to your last pair of underwear, and it’s time to tackle head-on that singular monster that’s been haunting your waking hours – the contents of your laundry […]
When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one Bwog family to dissolve the political board which has connected them with another, and to create among the powers of Bwog, the separate and equal new board to which the Laws of Nature and of past Alma Bwoggers entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that […]
While some of us might’ve wished upon a hopeful star for just one more holiday break before reading week, the inevitable end of the fall semester has come. To relieve your finals dread, Columbia University Marching Band has released its first round of Orgo Night flyers! Some revolve around the university’s recent drastic reduction of the band […]
I’m going to start off this callout post by putting it out there that I appreciate and respect my professors. At the same time, I am an economics major. Eco-nom-ics. Not astrophysics, not applied math, not pre-med, and despite all of Prezbo’s lackluster campaigning, not a STEM major. So imagine my reaction when I enrolled in an […]
As you could probably tell from the masses of snow-covered students crowding the lobby of John Jay last night, Columbia Dining hosted their annual Thanksgiving Feast this Thursday in John Jay Dining Hall. One Bwogger decided to attend this event solo yolo, using this opportunity to try some new foods, see some new sights, gain some new […]
Only a couple of weeks after Columbia was named the #1 college for food by The Daily Meal, sophomore Beth Whittier allegedly found a thumbtack in a potato dish from Ferris. Posted on Columbia Buy Sell memes this Sunday, Beth’s photos depict a clear thumbtack underneath potato remnants, next to a side of scrambled eggs and ketchup. According to a conversation with Bwog, Beth told […]
True fans of Bwog will know how much we love arbitrarily casting inanimate objects as stereotypical Myers-Briggs personalities. And, with the introduction of the new smoothie flavors in JJ’s, this classification of the smoothies as Myers-Briggs personality types is way overdue. Green Apple = ISTP. Weird as heck, but like, an exciting kind of weird. Has an interesting […]
I’ve spent a lot of my time here on Bwog (perhaps too much time) writing about my favorite campus subject…the dining halls. This article will be no different. This time, we’re having a go at classifying each dining hall under the framework of Plato’s Five Regimes, which any CC student might be all-too-familiar with. The Kallipolis = JJ’s […]
Maybe you’re an upperclassman who has run out of freshmen who are willing to swipe you into JJ’s Place. Or perhaps you’re a freshman yourself, preparing for the hell that is not having that backstage pass to JJ’s Place. In the interests of the people, we here at Bwog have decided to compile a very useful, very […]
Recently, we’ve noticed a new addition to the Butler bathrooms on the second floor: these weird little gray tables, attached to the stall walls. Apparently, they’re called “utility shelves,” but I feel like that just makes the whole situation even weirder. That being said, these tables could be useful. Indeed, the possibilities are endless! We here at Bwog, in […]
