It is the worst of times, and the most liminal of times. Reading week snuck up on us with a slap and here we are during finals: broken, disheartened, and yearning for summer (why is it still
Mary Stuart is premiering tonight and tomorrow as well, so go buy tickets while you can and experience this Victorian drama for yourself. More information and tickets can be found here. When considering Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots, many envision a woman donning a Victorian-era gown, sashaying through lavish palaces, and, perhaps, sipping tea in […]
Bernie attacked Hillary’s qualifications for the White House in a speech in Philly today. (NY Times) However, Hillary did visit New York yesterday, and even rode the subway (though it took her five swipes to get her card to work). (NY Times) Have you seen CMTS’s Sweeney Todd yet? (Look for our review later today!) […]

Since the Ivy schedule came out, analysts have pegged this game as the game to determine the fate of the basketball season. March has come, and those predictions have come true. Columbia (21-9, 10-3 Ivy) may be out of the title picture, but they have a completely precedented opportunity to play spoiler to Yale (21-6, 12-1 […]
Last night, we wrote that a USenate position had been vacated and people can apply. The next space will be filled via an “indirect election” whereby 3 nominees are chosen by a panel of “the College’s current senators, CCSC President, and one additional CCSC Executive Board member,” and the winner is voted on of those […]
So: on Sept. 21, the (former) co-editors of Quarto sent out an email blast announcing two things: (a) Quarto was”currently on hold”, and (b) a new magazine called 4×4, “a literary project from the editors of Quarto,” was starting. Curious, Bwog met with Aliza Polkes and Sarina Bhandari, former Quarto co-editors and current 4×4 co-editors. Here’s what’s […]
In memory of one of the best things said at a First Lit Hum Class, Bwog asked freshmen, as they were leaving Roone Arledge, to complete the following sentence: The Iliad is like: the Bible. a journey. boring. Stephen Colbert. Stephen Colbert hosting the White House Correspondents dinner for George W. Bush. no other book. […]
Mud-slinging in the freshman ESC race escalates in the class of 2016 Facebook group, but is resolved courteously. Bwog thinks the candidates should go at it Gladiator style, but perhaps that’s better saved for housing. Even more gratuitous gossipy screenshots below.
Update: It’s the 118th Street Breakfast Cart! We just wanted to build some suspense. Last weekend, Bwog’s crack team of bracketologists debuted the Bwog Coffee Showdown, with the goal of finding the best cup of coffee in Morningside? Sure, you can read about Linsanity on any sports page, but only Bwog’s Sports Desk can provide in-depth coverage of Columbia’s […]

Those hoping for the Spec site to return will be happy to hear that, according to editor-in-chief Melissa Repko, “the website should be back up again in the next 24 hours.” In the meantime, though, tipsters have provided a more complete picture of what brought the site down. According to sources, a group of managing […]
Visitors to the Spec‘s website might find the front page looking a little lacking in content. Rather than the first step in a makeover, tipsters tell us that there’s “some serious internal – and possibly legal – drama going down.” Spec editor-in-chief Melissa Repko declined comment on advice of lawyers, and online editor Ryan […]

There doesn’t seem to be a resistance, exactly, to the strike going down on Thursday—but not everyone is happy about it. SGB President Sakib Khan says that, while handing out flyers to advertise the strike yesterday at 7:40 PM outside Carman, a “tall skinny guy” came up and slapped a flyer out of his hand. […]
