We here at Bwog have stumbled upon the real reason you have to survive Lit Hum and CC. We can all agree that there are some issues with the Core. It’s too focused on old white men, there’s a nearly impossible amount of reading crammed into four semesters, and there’s too much heterosexuality and not enough lesbians. Sometimes, […]

Last night in Hamilton 602, German archaeologist Sigrid Vierck charmed Homer enthusiasts and Lit Hum students alike. “Who is that boy in the movies? Indiana Jones…?

Bwog has been operating under the commonly-held assumption that Core Professors have to petition with the Core office to give you anything under a B-.

Despite all appearances to the contrary, Columbia is aware that there has to be a little give and take when it comes to the Core. Yes, the classes you have to take to graduate are also the ones that are impossible to get into. You know it. And they know it. That’s why for Music […]

Cultural clubs are teaming up to think green. They were all yellow at one East Village restaurant. These riders can’t help that the MTA is in the red. Lacrosse hopes to stomp the Crimson. Don’t let the Core make you feel too blue.

McBain had a rough weekend. A lot of rhetorical questions about the practicality of a Columbia education.  “You don’t often hear the words “erotic” and “Columbia” in the same sentence.” Who wants to work for the Committee on the Core? …Anyone?   First Columbia, then ex-Queen members?
