Welcome back from winter break! While the days of relaxing in warm and sunny places or skiing in fresh snow are gone, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy yourself in the city during the winter.
Good morning Columbia! As homework begins to pile up and you realize the semester is actually, really, 100% starting, know that Bwog is here for you when you can’t waste your entire day reading the
Here, Bwog generously provides a closely-held recipe for Russian Tea (which neither comes from Russia nor contains tea), and it’s the perfect Beverage-in-Mug to warm you the hell up.
This Bwogger witnessed an epic faceoff in their Postmodernism class yesterday, which led them to question: if “blackberry” means “I love you,” what does kicking a cockroach out of a classroom mean?
Editor in Chief Isabel Sepúlveda provides the Columbia community with an actual email she sent to an actual professor teaching an actual class that’s guaranteed to get you off the waitlist. Here’s to your soon-to-be
Senior Staff Writer Jake “Jake-Luc Godard” Tibbetts woke up before 10:00 am on only one occasion over winter break: Monday, January 13, when, at 8:18 am EST, John Cho and Issa Rae announced the nominees
Let’s reminisce on that time, long ago, when classes were on and professors still inspired. Inspired you not to go class. Or maybe, inspired you to actually go to class. Either way, there were classes and there were professors. Here’s our professors at their finest moments. David Siegel: “I wish I did more charity work. Which is kinda why I […]
On the last day, professors like to make some sort of concluding remarks. Whether emotional, full of advice, or just plain weird, we’ve collected some of the best things your professors have said to share with you. “I’ve never seen this before I’m just making it up” – Math Methods for Economics, Sharon Harrison “I’m […]
It’s the end of the semester, and everyone’s getting tired. We’re tired, the dogs who sometimes meander across Low are tired, even Prezbo’s weather machine is tired (of making it look as though summer has come early for Days on Campus). But few people are more tired than our professors, who have had to give […]
The days are getting shorter, the weather is getting colder, and classes are winding down. As you head off to the last meeting of that class you love (or despise), be prepared for your professors to engage in the time honored tradition of making an emotional (or eye-rollingly cheesy, depending on how you’re feeling) goodbye speech to […]
Nothing better than your professors telling you, among other things, to get drunk, send nice emails, or vote for them in the future. Thanks for responding to our call and submitting direct quotes and/or descriptions of actions. A Bwog tradition, we once again bring you end-of-the-semester closing remarks! Alexis Soloski, LitHum: “Last week I threw […]
You’ve been hearing drunk seniors slurring the words “Iiiit’s Cloooosing Tiiimmmee…” as they get kicked out of 1020 at 4 am since September, but this is realer than any bad Semisonic song: the semester is coming to a close! We want you to help us compile a list of your professors’ best end-of-semester remarks/shenanigans for […]
There’s nothing we love more than when we call and you answer. On this first real day of reading week, we bring to you the parting words of just a few of the professors on this campus. Read these and weep about the fact that the semester is now over and you need to study your […]
It’s the last week of classes and the semester is coming to a close, which means that things are gonna get weird. And nostalgic. Fast. Your professor may straight up inspire you with a a heart-wrenching speech to send you off, or he/she may have reached the tipping point (think senioritis) and go totally off the […]
We called, and you answered. Here are the parting words of your dear, beloved professors, some of whom you have probably already forgotten / repressed / never met because you didn’t go to class. Read them and feel some sort of hope for your finals; feel free to leave your own in the comments and […]
“I have a feeling that we all use a little erotic magic ourselves sometimes, but I’m not going to give mine away.” – Helene Foley, Gender and Sexuality in Ancient Greece, 2013 “I’ve got a feeling.” – will.i.am, Music Hum, 2009 Want your teachers to number among these rhetorical greats of Columbia? Well today’s your […]
Ahh, classes. Don’t they feel like they were so long ago? Sike, they were only three days ago. Here are some parting gems from your professors as they ushered you out of the nest into the great wide world ahead. “Don’t play the two-handed economist. If someone asks for your opinion, give an opinion! There […]
*Ring Ring* “Yello?” “Hi this is Bwog. We just wanted to ask you if” *Click* “Gah, what a dick.” It is looking to be about that time of year again. Classes are ending, review sessions are happening, and teachers are saying some weird shit. Bwog, of course, wants to hear about it! Be sure to […]
So your classes are over, and all you’ve got left are the memories of the bizarre things your professors said, as well as a pile of notes and readings and a looming final exam. Here are some of those classic closing remarks that Bwog has gathered. Paige West: “[after giving normal concluding remarks] *thinks for a […]
We know you know that classes end soon. But we wanted to make sure you hadn’t forgotten what that means: closing remarks. Why did the Pharaohs build the pyramids? Why did Dido sing her lament? Why does anyone hold the Guinness World Record for longest fingernails? They all wanted to be remembered. And for that […]
The official last day of classes was yesterday–despite the 5 make-up classes you’re taking this week because of Hurricane Sandy. Take a deep breath and read the words of professors’ end-of-year nostalgia exasperation. Herbert Sloan, Survey of American Civilization to the Civil War: “Unfortunately, the president during all of this is James Buchanan, who has […]
