So You Want To Be A Spy

Earlier this week, we were tipped a document stating that an alleged Russian spy was recruiting at a “major” NYC university…perhaps Columbia? Inspired by this McSweeney’s column, our top conspiracy theorist describes the double life of a Columbia student turned secret agent. You begin preparing for your life in the shadows in the second week […]

Alma Mater And The Chamber Of Clandestine Secrets

Tunnel Explorer and Potions Master Britt Fossum thought she had what it took to be the heir of Slytherin. She quickly realized her mistake. Every Columbia student knows the legend of the owl nestled among Alma Mater’s robes, who will bless the first student in each year to find it with the title Valedictorian. But […]

The Twin Quota Is Real!

So it’s true that we’ve recently been on a conspiracy theory kick (as one commenter kindly pointed out).  Maybe we like the thrill, or maybe we just want to believe in something.  Either way, twin Eric Cohn is here with another totally serious, non-satirical conspiracy theory: this time about Columbia’s “twin quota.” In 1954, the Columbia Spectator […]

#tbt: Obama

Recently, a conservative blog called The Blaze floated the rumor that Obama didn’t actually go to Columbia. So, we did some sleuthing of our own (i.e., we checked his senior yearbook) to see if there’s any evidence that Obama really was on campus at some point. Okay, so we didn’t actually find any. He’s not […]

The Conspiracy Theorist: Hartley Hospitality Desk

Now that Breaking Bad is over, Bwog has to wonder what Hartley Hospitality Desk workers do whilst ignoring our maintenance requests to: have our locks fixed, get our broken toilets replaced (looking at you, Carman), and help us raise/lower/rebuild our beds. Naturally, we knew Blue Cheetah would have the answer, as our trusty source for […]

The Conspiracy Theorist: Pupin Plaza

Greetings, Bwog readers. Blue Cheetah here. That’s not my real name, of course. It’s not that I don’t trust you, it’s just too dangerous to be sharing my identity right now. They’re after me. They don’t want me sharing the truth. Who are “they,” you ask? Well, obviously, I can’t tell you. They are listening. […]

Dean Boyce’s Dark Past (?)

After Bwog was alerted to the possibility of some secrets lurking in the murky past of our new Dean of SEAS, Mary Boyce, we sent our Crazed Conspiracy theorist, Maud Rozee, to see what she could uncover. A few days ago, Bwog received a message from a member of MIT’s anti-war commission about our soon-to-be-beloved […]

PrezBo Not So Gaga for Posters

A tipster noticed a custodian removing every poster for The Matching Game from the Hamilton bulletin boards. Naturally we had questions. Why doesn’t PrezBo want us associating him with Lady Gaga? Have you ever seen the two of them in the same place at the same time? Is PrezGa the new Ke$ho? Would they make […]

Holey Moley

Several tipsters have noticed Facilities personnel knee-deep in a series of mysterious earthworks on South Field. Bwog is ridden with more questions than it can answer. Could these pipes be water related? Poop-bearing? Electrical or steam conducting? The Core doesn’t teach us to make these distinctions. Update (6:01 pm) : Facilities has informed us that […]
