Five and a half hours into the CUDM for pediatric AIDS prevention and things seem to be going swimmingly. Bwog popped in and spotted a number of things: lots of falafel and Havana empañadas, Venom and Onyx performing, and, most importantly, Danza Kuduro blaring through the speakers. But things were looking kind of sparse so maybe […]

….with CUDM. If you’ve been bemoaning the lack of good dancing at Columbia, look no further: registration for Columbia University Dance Marathon is now open. For those of you not in the know, CUDM is an 18 hour fundraising event for the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS foundation, where you dance in the Lerner Party Space. […]
Looks like attendees were having a good time (18 hours worth of time) at the Columbia University Dance Marathon (CUDM) last night. All proceeds from the “dance party” fundraising event went to the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation towards the fight against pediatric HIV/AIDS. Congrats to everyone who participated, even though you’re all probably asleep right now […]
Get ready to shake yo’ groove thang because this Saturday (and Sunday!) is an 18 hour dance marathon! CUDM is partnered with the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (try saying EGPAF five times fast), which strives to stop mother-to-child transmission of HIV through research, advocacy, prevention and treatment programs. While the signup to dance for […]
Bwog wonders: Why does all of the free food these days take the triangular form of pizza? Whatever happened to the good old (read: kind of few and far between) times when there was free sushi? Still, we’re not ones to sneeze at a free dinner, so make your way to Lerner 569 at 7:30 pm, where […]
Grab your dancin’ shoes and head over to Lerner Party Space for the best hour of Dance Marathon: Bar Mitzvah hour. Bwog’s told there will be PRIZES. It’ll be just like David Weinstein’s party in the Teaneck synagogue basement, only you won’t be wearing braces. Update (9:05 am): Here are some shots from last night’s […]
The tenth annual Columbia University Dance Marathon began at noon today in Lerner Party Space!

The Columbia University Dance Marathon crew will be holding an information session tonight at 7pm in 568 Lerner where you can learn more about their HIV-fighting benefit event and, of course, snag some free pizza. Hooray for organizations that accomplish a lot in 28 hours!
Right now on Low Plaza, Green Umbrella is holding “350 – Day of International Climate Action at Columbia University,” with appearances and tabling by many other campus student groups. More importantly, though, there’s free food! The organizers tell Bwog food will be in evidence until the event ends at 6. In other humanitarian news, Kappa […]
