We all know the feeling. Before coming to college, we vowed we’d never touch a cigarette. But, of course, that’s total bullshit. We all break that vow sooner or later, and where you smoked your first cigarette at Columbia actually says a lot about you. Read on to reminisce and find out which stereotype you are. […]
As tensions flare over the controversy of the proposed campus-wide smoking ban, renegade street artists put a smoking hot twist on The Battle of Harlem Heights. See if you can spot it!
In the midst of the campus-wide smoking ban debate, it would appear that Columbians are taking matters into their own hands. The following pun-ny sign and vessel were spotted by a tipster outside grad student haunt Haakon’s Hall, on Amsterdam:
Bill O’Reilly can have his war on Christmas, but here at Columbia a long-smoldering war has been newly stoked—the war on smoking. For millennia, men, and then most recently women, had lounged inside the confines of Butler Library relaxedly puffing away towards a state of greater tasty tobacco-scented peacefulness and pseudo-philosophical coolness. First they kicked […]
A person in a group of people smoking outside Havana: I know smoking is shitty…but you should be able to do shitty things to yourself. Outside Broadway: Person 1: Hey, you have smokes? Person 2: Yeah, I unquit. Life’s too short to live any longer. People are so topical.
Brian Wagner was on the scene. The meeting started with a brief update on the new space CUEMS had requested. GSSC and ESC voted to give them both Broadway 102 and 103, but ABC voted against CUEMS using either one of the rooms. Then, CCSC moved into the main business of the evening. Generally, meetings […]

(The Chronicle) NYC’s health commissioner dislikes Camel’s new cigarettes, the ones marketed directly towards hipsters. (NY Daily News) Now NYPD can scan your iris to make sure you’re really you.

Chewbacchanal is coming–and it’s in 3D! All of it! (Facebook) There are fewer people in Manhattan now than ten years ago? (The New York Times) King Tut to return. (New York Post) Cigarettes may get even more expensive. (Daily Intel) But New Yorkers want to replace them with those other cigarettes. (Gothamist)
First it was freshman residences, then all dorms, and now the main campus: Columbia University’s tobacco policy working group has “has forwarded a set of recommendations, including a proposal to prohibit smoking in within the gated areas considered the core of campus.” The policy would go into effect in next year. In explaining the proposed […]
Now that Columbia’s buildings (and the 25 feet surrounding those buildings) are officially smoke-free, the ashtrays in front of Hamilton — the longtime home of many a clove extinguished in the minutes before a humanities class — have been turned into flower pots. The War on Tobacco has taken a most poetic turn. Photo by […]
Bwog just heard word that this July, Governor Paterson signed legislation making smoking illegal in all New York college dormitories — this includes EC! A pair of RAs also noted that at least for Columbia, the mere possession of tobacco products is forbidden. In other crackdown news, one Bwog staffer was removed by security this […]
