On September 20th, the Institute for Religion, Culture, and Public Life teamed up with Columbia Religious Life to host a forum on the recent measles outbreak in New York’s ultra-orthodox Jewish communities. The recent outbreaks
As fummer is upon us–that is, the time between summer and fall when the morning chill requires a sweatshirt that later gets soaked in sweat around 1 pm–we shall celebrate the equinox early and in
Thank God it’s Friday! It’s a miracle that we made it to the weekend. Celebrate with Bwoglines (and a side of Pastor Joel Osteen you’ve never seen before).
New Bwogger Grace Steele shares her take on the common experience of warily wandering the aisles of Morton Williams, hoping some random item will lift their spirits.
There’s officially less than one week until NSOP 2017! Which means that all you first years out there are currently lost in a sea of suitcases, socks, and sweaters. Moving into college is definitely stressful, especially when that college is in NYC. But, it’s also one of the most exciting times of your life… so here’s […]
Packing for college can be a pain, especially if you’re trying to fit it all into the back of an uber from JFK. We all skimped out on at least one of these things before coming to campus, and deeply regretted it shortly into NSOP. You’ll want to scan over Bed Bath & Beyond’s checklist so you […]
This afternoon, the Columbia class of 2021 released a letter in their Facebook group addressed to “the students of the University of Virginia and Charlottesville Community.” The letter condemns the violence of the “Unite the Right” rallies and expresses support for marginalized students. So…that’s pretty much how the class of 2021 is going to go. We’ve included […]
This past weekend (post-Bacchanal) was Columbia’s first Days On Campus session. Hundreds of prospective students (aka “prospies”) flooded campus, wandering around like lost puppies in search of alcohol. Over the course of their 24 hour stay, we were asked quite some interesting questions. Here are a few of the most popular, as well as their […]

Congratulations to a new class of Barnard students! Earlier this afternoon, Barnard sent out its decisions to regular decision applicants of the class of 2021. Barnard received a total of 7,716 applications this year – an eight percent increase from last year – and accepted a total of 1,139. This brings the college’s admission rate down […]
Welcome to a new spring semester, Columbia! Although we’re already a few weeks into the new year, Bwog thought we’d do a comprehensive review of what Columbia will be leaving behind in 2016— as well as what we’re hoping to jump into in 2017. New year, new Columbia. What we did leave behind in 2016: Orgo Night. […]
After hours of poring over applications, we get our first (sort of) glimpses at the class of 2021. Today, the Office of Undergraduate Admissions released their first round of letters to early decision applicants– as well as some statistics about them. This year, Undergraduate Admissions received 4,086 Early Decision applications to Columbia College and The […]
