Good morning Columbia! As homework begins to pile up and you realize the semester is actually, really, 100% starting, know that Bwog is here for you when you can’t waste your entire day reading the
Here, Bwog generously provides a closely-held recipe for Russian Tea (which neither comes from Russia nor contains tea), and it’s the perfect Beverage-in-Mug to warm you the hell up.
If you love both Killing Eve and comparing Columbia’s dorms to random things, then you’re in the right place.

Staffer Jordan Merrill theorizes/investigates/conspires about the “renovations” in the Carman Hall basement.
October can’t come soon enough. To get his spook on, senior Bwogger Leo Bevilacqua decided to sort through his love-hate relationship with Ryan Murphy in a productive way. MURDER HOUSE (Carman) – Where the horror begins quite literally. Plus, some unfortunate upperclassmen find themselves trapped in this liminal space for years to come as RA’s. Those […]
Columbia students really aren’t the best with maps.

In this edition, we ask CC […]

Just when you thought you escaped the woes of Housing over break, they return. Bwog has received word that more dorms next semester will receive free wireless access. Expect this to change some dynamics when it comes to housing selection! Here’s the full list of dorms that will have Wi-Fi starting in the Fall, via […]
Housing: like it or not, it’s here. You’re probably in the throes of registration (and if you are, what are you waiting for! You only have two days left!) and have broken at least two friendships. But don’t worry, Bwog has been there and understands. We’ve delved into the mysterious world of Columbia Housing for […]
