LGBTQ Students in the Zone with Quigley, Friedman, Colombo

A smattering of students and a sea of empty chairs confronted Deans Quigley, Colombo, and Friedman (SEAS) about the noose incident at an event this afternoon sponsored by the Columbia Queer Alliance. The small showing was probably due to the time – noon on a Thursday – and also because the admins agreed to show […]

No more CUnity this year. Orientating first-years, who arrived at Columbia a few years too late to have Edward Said tell them that they have in fact been Occidentating all along, instead had BlaZe–a kind of scavenger hunt / color war hybrid–sending them screaming across campuses on both sides of Broadway.

QuickConvocation

In which Bwog allows you to feel like you were there without actually having to sit through it.

Snack Attack

Oh how quickly Columbia’s wheels of justice turn. A little less than 48 hours ago, I posted on the Bwog a pictures of a bizarre little homemade cracker packet I found. Then came the increasingly frantic emails from the Class Deans and Public Security to the Blue & White’s editor-in-chief, Avi. By last night, the […]

Dean Colombo Knows Your Name!

Or, to be more accurate, Dean Colombo knows that you have a first name. It’s a start, Chris, but something to keep working on, along with just how many spaces the word “graduation” has (hint: zero).
