It is the worst of times, and the most liminal of times. Reading week snuck up on us with a slap and here we are during finals: broken, disheartened, and yearning for summer (why is it still
Is there really a “new era” of football at Columbia? If you believe the Columbia Football Twitter feed, then sure. The Lions have broken The Streak, ending a historical epoch and sending us tenuously into a brighter future. Columbia wants students to get excited. The team is practicing on the lawns, Baker Field is allowing […]
It’s midterm time so Bwog is continuing one of our favorite types of series: archetypes, specifically College Walk Archetypes. We all recognize certain people/groups of people as we sprint from Ferris to Havemeyer in the morning. Mind you, our idea of “College Walk” is really anything from Butler to Low, so be prepared for some real […]
Remember the glory of Butler Archetypes? We missed them on Bwog so we’re bringing them back with an eye for College Walk (and being incredibly liberal in our definition of “College Walk” such that it basically constitutes anything between Butler and Low). First up, we asked Features Editor Alexander Pines to give us the chain-smoking […]
If you’re returning to campus after a fall break filled with family, hometown friends, and studying lazing around in bed, you’ll notice that Facilities has started to install lights on the College Walk trees. Stay tuned for an announcement for the tree-lighting ceremony in a week or so. The lights are actually lit before the […]
During the tree-lighting ceremony last Thursday on College Walk, our darn-diddley Dean added to the College’s finals-burden by announcing a little extra-curricular pop quiz. Though the quiz is merely a pesky distraction for our more SEAS-minded peers, Bwog is skittish (and uncomfortably reminded of consulting interviews). The Dean, however, says it’s something technical yet accessible. […]
College walk has been taken over by Israeli and Palestinian supporters. The Israeli group is standing on the Butler side, wielding Israeli flags and signs. The Palestinian side is standing in front of Low, holding up flags, signs, and yelling names of civilian casualties. Both groups are standing their ground and handing out flyers. The […]
In Bwog’s super high-tech new feature College Talks, we find out what your classmates/randos frolicking on Low Steps have to say about stuff. Check out our inaugural installment below: Send suggestions of questions you’d like to see us ask to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For the second day in a row, famed NYC food trucks will continue their occupation of College Walk, courtesy of Columbia Cheatsheet and Bacchanal. Today’s on-the-go menu will feature drool-worthy offerings from the GO Burger Truck and the Treats Truck (we hear their Mexican chocolate is pretty delicious). They’ll be stationed there from 12 to 4 pm, so scurry on over […]
And you just don’t have that creative spark to turn nothing into something? No biggie. Stop by the flea market currently taking place on Low Steps. It looks like they have a variety of cheesy dorm room posters and small potted plants. There are even two food trucks for your lunching pleasure. For everyone else, watch […]
An unidentified person was arrested minutes ago on College Walk. According to a tipster, the cab on the right is actually an undercover cop car (just like the movies!), and another tipster informed us that the person arrested was a man wearing a backpack shouting, “What did I do?” Apparently around a dozen cops surrounded […]
At around 11:45pm tonight, we received word of an incident on College Walk near the 116th St. gates. Tipsters informed us of a man screaming and being arrested by NYPD with Public Safety on the scene. NYPD told us the person of interest was “emotionally disturbed.” Public Safety had no comment but said they were […]
The lights were removed from College Walk, which is kind of exciting! Here’s why: Columbia doesn’t feel the need to distract us from terrible weather with pretty non-denominational holiday decorations for the rest of the semester. So, maybe the weather won’t be terrible from here on out. Q.E.D. See the newly bare trees below:
Last night, Bwog received a tip that there appeared to be some people who were arrested on College Walk. Spec now reports that two children attempted to rob a 19-year-old student outside Butler a little after 8:30 p.m., and these children were then arrested by NYPD. When asked for a statement last night, Public Safety […]
Crazy snow of apocalyptic proportions (“thundersnow“?) hit New York yesterday. Assuming your family is already getting on your nerves, here are a few glimpses of Columbiana to help you forget the hell of finals and idealize school again. Bwog woke to the sound of sleds scraping along the sidewalk. Hot cocoa in hand, we’re heading […]
