Columbia announced that faculty and staff need to get vaccinated by September 1, 2021, in preparation for the fall semester, according to an email sent earlier this morning by University Vice President Gerry Rosberg and
The DEI commission shared their report directly with SEAS students today and asked for feedback regarding its content.
In a close vote, graduate student workers have decided against the proposed contract from the bargaining committee and the University.
Bwog surveyed students across the four undergraduate colleges to better understand the impacts of the GWC-UAW strike on their academic and emotional wellbeing.
Though we’ve already somewhat slyly commented on President Obama’s recent withdrawal of American troops from Iraq, we’ve decided that the event deserves a more thorough discussion. The U.S. has maintained a presence in Iraq since 2003, a.k.a. when most current undergrads were still in elementary and middle school. This war has dominated America’s foreign attention […]
This slice of relevance provided by Wikimedia Commons Sarah Camiscoli is a shoe-leather journalist! She sat in on the College Dems vs College Republicans final debate of the year, and everyone yelled a lot. The chalkboard in Fayerweather 313 blared: “Resolved: The public school system should be replaced with vouchers.” This was to be a […]
The Columbia Political Union hosted another in its series of debates between the Columbia Democrats and Republicans. Senior Junior Political Correspondent Derek Huang was there. Ah, debate: an experience normally associated with eager high-schoolers who take themselves too seriously. Last night’s debate, though, involved a different type of hyper-argumentative youth. Last night’s debate between the […]
Tired of school? Well here, have some health care debate, and some career planning! First, at 8pm in Hamilton 303, the College Republicans host Paul Howard of the Manhattan Institute to talk about health care reform in congress and elsewhere. Then from 9 to 10:30, get yourself a science internship at the aptly named Science […]
Last night’s Columbia Political Union Healthcare debate boasted no special format: the soothing power of the free market versus humanity and logical responsibility. Their respective groupies cheered, scoffed and even engaged in some raucous Joe Wilson-ery. More valuable than watching the news, less valuable than personally investigating the issues, but more time-effective than either – […]
Never shying away from a potential stage storming, the Bwog staff attended last night’s speech by Ann Coulter. As the crowd shuffled in through the long security lines for Ann Coulter‘s visit to Columbia, the same question was on everyone’s mind–would it get crazy in Altschul? Outside the event someone had dropped leaflets instructing the […]
October’s Blue&White graces the World Wide Web today! A few gems from this month’s issue: Columbia Republicans kick off the year with open arms A day of discovery and unsheathed broadswords at the Medieval Festival in Fort Tryon Park Ever wanted to be a banker? Yeah, not anymore A run-down of Morningside’s ghosts “When I […]
The highly anticipated second Presidential debate of the 2008 election commenced mere moments ago. Tonight’s affair should prove to be quite the slug-fest, as both camps have turned up the heat with nasty smears and negative ads as of late, with just under thirty days until election day. Also, tonight’s debate from Belmont University in […]
Bwog headed to Roone Cinema this evening ready for our daily dose of lively intellectual discourse, today’s source being the first of three debates between the College Democrats and Republicans on issues pertinent to the upcoming election. We settled into our cushy seat surrounded by a vast sea of argyle sweaters and watched the games […]
Economy remains not-so-hot; PrezBo begins to “cut back in a lot of little different ways,” no big deal. College Democrats and Republicans gather in same room, give each other silent treatment. Wait, being an English major is worthless?!? Camels roam streets, Spec reporters kissed by llamas, all just a few short blocks away! Queer sex […]
Over a month ago, CU Dems made plans to visit Northern Virginia to help push Obama and House and Senate candidates over the edge to victory. Bwog has now heard that the Republicans will be going to campaign in New Jersey on Election Day. Both trips will be funded entirely out of the groups’ own […]
Why is Google so biased against the Columbia University College Republicans? A furtive, anonymous tipster, known only as “Dispose Me,” just informed Bwog of some foul play at work within the liberal search engine. “The Columbia Republicans site appears to have been plagued with viagra ads. And penis elargments. It’s also quite visible when you […]
With the dual force of Obamacain four days from striking campus, student groups and councils are scrambling to inject themselves into the festivities. On Saturday, representatives from almost every governing council, as well as CPU, the College Democrats, and the College Republicans, met to plan programming for the run-up. They plan to send their outline […]
Islamo-Fascism Awareness week, round one!: Kulawik and co. organize a non-partisan “candlelight vigil” at the sundial. Chopin plays tastefully in the background; more or less sombre-looking College Republicans mill about, ostensibly in remembrance of alleged “Islamo-fascism’s” alleged victims. But what’s this? Revolution party folk handing out fliers and displaying some choice David Horowitz quotes? Seems […]
