Come one, come all for free cupcakes! Not actually – this only applies to you if you have a ratty, unwanted, or unfashionable coat lying around (which we know you do) and can carry it to the ProjectHealth Coat Drive between today and Saturday (which you probably can). If you do bring over your old […]
The CU Dance Marathon finally wrapped up at 4:00 PM today after 28 hours of the “Cha-Cha Slide,” a bhangra lesson, and pretty much every Top 40 dance hit since 1985. Sadly, Bwog missed the rumored Judah Friedlander appearance. But the good news is the grand total raised: $50,020 by over 80 dancers for the […]
The Columbia University Dance Marathon is already 3/14 (or 21.4%) done! Bwog suggests you go on and Electric Slide your way down to Lerner soon, because there are only twenty-two more hours to see all your favorite people shakin’ that thang for the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation.

There’s a lot of talk about Columbia students being too fortunate for our own good. That may or may not be true. But there is no question, we got lucky today. Columbia students could not have asked for a more ideal afternoon for Relay for Life. The event began at noon and will continue until […]
Hurry! From 6-9 tonight, the Blue Key Society hosts a competitive, campus wide Spelling Bee in the Wien Lounge. ROAR, LION, ROAR! [Results after the jump!] For almost every student, Spellcheck is an indispensable tool. Thanks to Bill Gates and his brainchild, Microsoft Word, the once tedious process of editing a paper for spelling errors […]

Silverman will be performing stand-up on May 9th to benefit Project ALS, an organization which benefits Lou Gerhig’s Disease research.

Scrabulous devotees beware: Bwog newcomer Mariela Quintana shares a cautionary tale of addiction, rehabilitation, and quasi-salvation in the form of a charity Scrabble tournament. For many a puzzler, the insatiable need for crosswords can spiral into an addiction. Like any nasty habit, crosswording starts as a leisure activity and spawns into an all-consuming compulsion, driving […]
With Thanksgiving a distant memory and our 39 day winter break on the horizon, the holiday season is officially upon us.
