It’s the first Friday of the semester! Take a break from obsessively rearranging your schedule to catch up on global and local news with Bwoglines.
Welcome back from winter break! While the days of relaxing in warm and sunny places or skiing in fresh snow are gone, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy yourself in the city during the winter.
Good morning Columbia! As homework begins to pile up and you realize the semester is actually, really, 100% starting, know that Bwog is here for you when you can’t waste your entire day reading the
Here, Bwog generously provides a closely-held recipe for Russian Tea (which neither comes from Russia nor contains tea), and it’s the perfect Beverage-in-Mug to warm you the hell up.
This past Monday, Columbia College announced that 97 seniors will be inducted into Phi Beta Kappa, a couple of weeks after Barnard announced its spring inductees.
Senior Bwogger, Leo Bevilacqua, gives you a Joanne the Scammer-esque behind the Pantone 292 curtain look at the illustrious and bougie John Jay Awards Dinner.
This evening, both Barnard College and Columbia College released the names of the remaining inductees for their 2018 classes of Phi Beta Kappa. Phi Beta Kappa is made up of 10 percent of the respective college senior class, chosen “based on the breadth, depth and rigor of their academic programs” (not necessarily the top 10 percent GPA-wise, […]
Amanda Ba is a Columbia College freshman who is taking Lit Hum while also running online clothing business. This week, Bwogger Victoria Arancio admired dogs with Ba and discussed her plans for her art and for her first year at Columbia. Bwog: Give us insight into the amazing life of Amanda Ba. AB: I was born in Columbus, […]
Dear Bwog, I’ve been having serious cravings lately. I really miss home-cooked meals and the tastes that I am accustomed to. All the food here is too colorful. But do you know what I’m really missing? Some good, ole-fashioned, sweaty white dick. Yours, cheesecake lover Dear Cheesecake lover, Don’t ever feel like you’re alone! Columbia […]
Deep in the abyss of John Jay Hall, a star is born. Just kidding, she was born in 1997. However, her highly-anticipated EP, Blood Girl, was not. In fact, Blood Girl was birthed from the fiery womb of creativity just about one month after its creator, Rachel Roth, arrived on Columbia’s campus. Rachel Roth, who […]
Ever wonder what getting hired to teach a Core class as a grad student is like? Bwog’s own Monday Daily Lili Brown sat down with Nathan Schumer, a grad student hired to teach CC in the fall, and asked some stellar questions that get to the CORE (great pun!!) of the interview process. Check it […]
Have you been feeling reflective about the Core? Feel like some work of humanities has inspired you so deeply that you’re willing to submit a piece of work for the chance at $200? Were you really busy recently but aren’t anymore? Then you should be partying like it’s 1999 because the deadline for Core Reflections […]
CC major declaration is around the corner (March 10-13th), which means that this is a grand time for sophomores to watch all of their friends oscillate between English, Anthropology, Art History, and that Stats degree their dad’s friend from high school thought they should get—only to end up declaring Political Science or Econ, of course. Don’t […]
As CC major declaration looms approaches, a number of departments are hosting open houses for students to meet and discuss their prospective major(s). While you might have missed Drama & Theatre Arts on Monday (whoops), check out the schedule of all the other open houses. Go to find out more about your major and harass […]
Columbia releases all announcements on Friday mornings, including one from a few minutes ago that states that effective immediately, CC and SEAS (and a similar email was also sent out to GS students) “will no longer provide registration credit (R credit) on academic transcripts to note that a student has participated in an internship.” Columbia […]
Hometown heroes Vampire Weekend took to Reddit this morning to promote their brand spanking new album, Modern Vampires of the City. Along with vital topics like salmon shorts selection and Ezra Koenig’s cameo on Girls, the bandmates also upped our collective street cred by chatting about Columbia for a bit. Turns out either Chris Baio or Chris Tomson didn’t […]
A source close to Professor Ellsberg has informed us that the majority of students suspected of cheating in the so-called “Barnard Cheating Scandal” are actually men and women from Columbia College. Of the 123 students, only around a fifth of the students have been specifically marked out as having cheated–and Ellsberg has a list of […]
Still cramming for LitHum and CC? Did you fall asleep last night before you could finish reading Crime and Punishment? Bwog is here to help with another oldie-but-goodie from reading periods past. It all began when Bwog overheard this conversation: Freshman Girl: Hey, so how did Pride and Prejudice end? Freshman Boy: Oh, they get […]
