Ahh, Columbia! The Ivy League School where the brightest students from around the world study under renowned professors, hanging out in groups with perfect diversity and doing mock trial in their free time. Or so
Today, we compiled some advice specifically for students interested in science at Columbia. If you’re curious about what your first science lecture will be like, how to get into on-campus research, or how to take
HOLIDAY CHEER! Special thanks to XMAS 5! A Corporate Carol – go see it next Monday night! Also thanks to Eli Grober for playing guitar, Wallen and D’Offit for vocals, Matt Star for orchestration, John Nordin, Eduardo Santana and Nathan Bailey for dancing, Bwog staff for helping with lyrics and Kenny Durrell for his filming talents.
As soon as Thankgiving is over, it’s Christmas/Hannukah whatever wintry holiday you choose to celebrate time! With the influx of decorations and festive cheer, there’s the bitter cold, and of course, renovated ice-cream stores. Bwog brings you neighborhood minutiae courtesy of Boringside Heights… Fro-Yo next to M2M is being revamped, apparently into Hershey’s Decorations at […]
The lights have officially been cut from the trees on College Walk. Until, December, friends. Here’s to spring! Speaking of which: Bwog goes on spring break, too. We’ll be posting occasionally for the next week, but expect us back in full swing a week from Monday. Happy travels/sleeps!
The Morningside minutiae in our little Bubble Above 110th Street is what keeps us together. The tiny parts of our neighborhood that make it both boring and wonderful would seem trivial to anyone on the outside. Occasionally, we’ll be taking the time to share the minor details with you. The Entitled Sophomores indignantly note that […]
This weekend, Bwog ventured into the heart of Brooklyn to find the best and the bushiest of the pinus genus. If you know of any noteworthy XMAS tree purveyors around town, please let us know in the comment section below. Last week, Bwog posted a list of “Things We’re Looking Forward To,”, which at the […]
Holiday spirit is being trucked into the city today, in the form of that huge Rockefeller Center tree. (The tree lighting will be on December 3rd.) Urban forestry photojournalist Sumeet Shah is on the scene at an extremely high vantage point. More pictures after the jump and throughout the day.
Are you kept up at night by financial fears? Yes…but PrezBo is always there for me with his consoling words. Are you proud to be an American now with an Obama Presidency? Yes…but Obama’s Presidency could be as disastrous as the Trojan War was for the Greeks! Wait, who won that war? Better check Sparknotes… […]
Today is Veterans Day, but the local RiteAid has already fallen victim to a vicious attack by Christmas decorations. Bwog assumes the ladder is temporary. RiteAid is not the first victim of this offensive — others include Starbucks and Duane Reade (all the way back in September). If your friends or favorite establishment come down […]
Look at what a nice welcome back treat your President Bollinger has arranged! Men have arrived in white trucks filled with Christmas lights, and they have begun stringing these lights around College Walk’s trees in the traditional fashion. More photos of daytime holiday loveliness after the jump.
Coming soon to 113th Street: McVickar hall, another space for alumni to network…but this time with undergrads! Just five short years until the 6th and 7th graders at Columbia’s Secondary School can get a taste of the big kid Core The headline “Stale Castlevania Goes Eclectic in Order of Ecclesia” exists, heralds in a new […]
Oh look, here is a depressing thing: Duane Reade has already begun stocking up on Christmas decorations. In hopes that these were actually just leftovers from last year, Bwog checked with the salesperson who confirmed that yes, these are new for the season. So if you’re looking to start your Christmas paraphernalia collection early, at […]
Christmas shopping in New York is a bitch–there’s so much, and it’s so expensive, and expectations of wonderful gifts from the Big City are so high that it’s tempting just to throw in the towel altogether. Christmas shops, then, can furnish a partial solution to the problem of finding ten things for ten people in […]
For those of you who celebrate Christmas and for those of you who just like asking for stuff, here’s what BwGossipers want for the holidays, material and otherwise. Is anyone up there listening? a time machine Pinkberry for life the secession of New York City dinner with Katherine Boo a bean bag chair more presents […]
While you were celebrating the last day of classes in Butler or 1020, Bwog theatre critic Ginia Sweeney attended the late viewing of XMAS 2: The Secular Spectacular. Although the show’s run began and ended last night, Ginia shares her thoughts. Photos by Lydia DePillis. I’ve been so wrapped up in the end of the […]
