Wipe that crust from your eyes, Columbians. It’s the second day back from Spring Break, and jetlag is no longer an excuse (unless you’re just returning from some three-day hell of flight cancellations and missed connections, in which case…good luck!) While you suck it up and drown yourselves in coffee, here’s some more stuff we’ve […]

All Columbia staff received an email yesterday alerting them to changes in the online directory; evidently, changes are not limited to the new antifreeze-blue “search” button.

Matthew Harrison C’05, who loved being President of CCSC so much that he decided to stick around after graduation, has been deluging Bwog’s inbox lately (okay, he sent us two emails) hyping up Environmental Sustainability Day (which is apparently tomorrow).

The Second Coming?

There’s something different about Columbia’s homepage, and it’s not wittier news headlines. A few days ago, eagle-eyed website watcher Chris Szabla noticed that the two spades on Columbia’s crown logo have morphed back into crosses, prompting our tipster to wonder whether the Campus Crusade for Christ had paid off or if there are more divine […]

Portman Redux

The ever-so-helpful Columbia homepage has a story about Natalie Portman’s legendary visit to Stuart Gottlieb’s Terrorism & Counterterrorism class. Most important, however, is a link to the video footage! See Natalie on Van Am Quad! See Gottlieb looking hot! See yourself, unshaven and weary-eyed, totally unprepared for contact with Hollywood royalty! Also, there’s a full […]

An empty puff piece on South Asian studies at Columbia (“Of Columbia’s many ties with South Asia, India is probably the strongest”) ends with a dazzling flourish of geopolitical hubris: “the buzz about Columbia’s newly revitalized South Asia program will soon be spreading all over the Subcontinent.” Just like militant Islam! Um, the world is […]
