It is a cold hard fact that students forget what they learned in school over summer vacation…but winter break is shorter and so we must remember more of what we learned, right? Right??
It’s the first Friday of the semester! Take a break from obsessively rearranging your schedule to catch up on global and local news with Bwoglines.
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.
Baby Bwogger Mia Xing went to a CU Taiko rehearsal, during which she dropped her drumsticks and almost had to do push-ups, which she doesn’t know how to do! Here are her thoughts on why everyone should learn how to play the Japanese drums at Columbia!
On Sunday in Lerner, the Columbia Women’s Business Society put on its annual conference, this year focusing on Success to Significance and how women can break down gender barriers in a variety of fields. Bwog sent Staff Writer Maya Corral to cover this event, where she drank lots of Yerba Mate and learned how to […]
This past Friday, a new cultural group on campus called the Jewish Israeli Film Club held a film screening of The Band’s Visit – and hosted Sasson Gabai, one of the film’s stars, for a meet-in-greet. Managing Editor Betsy Ladyzhets attended the event and talked to the group’s founder about its goals. Both the 2007 Israeli film The […]
Colloquially referred to as the “Barnard Gardening Club,” officially recognized as nothing, but personally called the “Barnard Community Garden,” this unofficial club at Barnard has made a lot of change considering its (lack of) status. Bwog sat down with the visionaries behind the Barnard Community Garden and talked about sending an inordinate amount of e-mails […]
What are Columbia students doing to engage with the recent movement of increased activism against gun violence? Daily Editor Isabel Sepúlveda found out by speaking to members of new organization Columbia University Against Gun Violence and attending two of the group’s events. In the wake of the Parkland shooting this past February, there has been an […]
Today, Bwog Science brings you a clubhop on Columbia Space Initiative (CSI), “a group of students and professors dedicated to the pursuit of knowledge in near-space, space, and beyond.” Although the club is relatively new (started in 2015), it has already accomplished much, attending national competitions at Cape Canaveral and sending a stuffed animal Roaree […]
Did you read about the gadfly in Plato’s Apology? Do you know the term just because you are hip? Or are you lost af? Whichever defines you, Bwog has a novel answer: become a PART of The Gadfly, a.k.a., Columbia’s undergraduate Philosophy journal, thanks to its recent revamp. Senior staffer (and Gadflyer) Sarah Dahl has the […]
When two friends of Managing Editor Betsy Ladyzhets told her they were starting a book club at Barnard, she was amazed – there are college students who somehow want to do even more reading? The concept seemed fairly fantastical. Betsy went to the group’s first meeting last night to find out how they plan to […]
Did you know that there’s a group of Columbia students travelling to NASA’s headquarters in Houston this spring? We didn’t either, until we heard about Columbia Space Initiative, CU’s newest space engineering club. Bwog writer Betsy Ladyzhets attended one of the group’s meetings and talked to them about their projects. In case you hadn’t heard, […]
Last week, we sent Bwoggers Jessa Nootbaar and Jennifer Nugent to cover the CU Vegan Society’s second meeting of the semester. In keeping with Bwog’s tradition of foodie ClubHops (second culinary club of the spring semester and going strong!!), this week we’ve decided to go abroad: to France. Columbia University French Cultural Society invited us […]
Shopping period is over, which means your schedule is finally complete and (if you’re lucky) not a complete mess. But that’s just your academic schedule. What about those extracurriculars? Don’t you wanna get involved with something? Meet new people? Since the Activities Fair is only held in September, joining new clubs during the Spring Semester […]
Columbia students represent a wide range of political interests. Libertarianism is just one of them. We sent Bwogger Maddie Stearn to check out the CU Libertarians meeting Tuesday night in Hamilton 304. If you’re not a Libertarian, don’t let that stop you from attending a CU Libertarians meeting. Seriously, 10/10, Would Recommend. Going in, I […]
Big things are always shaping up on the Barnard Quad. This week that big thing is the newly formed Legend of Korra Viewing Club, held weekly in the Sulz 8 lounge. Legend of Korra is the offshoot of popular Nickelodeon anime series Avatar: The Last Airbender. As one participant’s mother aptly exclaimed, in reaction to […]
