We’re back with Science Fair, Bwog’s weekly curated list of interesting STEM-related talks, symposiums, and events happening on campus. For science and non-science majors alike, our list will bring you events that will satisfy your
New Bwogger and first-year student Joanna Yu attended the keynote event, From Refugee Children to Climate Change: Global Challenges in an Age of Nationalism, hosted by the DART Center for Journalism and Trauma of Columbia
Baby Bwogger and Barnard First-Year Sarah Perry faced her fear of approaching random people in the dining halls.
On September 20th, the Institute for Religion, Culture, and Public Life teamed up with Columbia Religious Life to host a forum on the recent measles outbreak in New York’s ultra-orthodox Jewish communities. The recent outbreaks
As fummer is upon us–that is, the time between summer and fall when the morning chill requires a sweatshirt that later gets soaked in sweat around 1 pm–we shall celebrate the equinox early and in
V117 premieres tonight! Their trailer (as imagined by CUMB) boasts POWER, LUST and Godzilla footage. Check out our review of the preview, and a brief history of the Varsity Show tradition. We’ll see you there tonight! Spec gets personal and pretty cute with their professors about the meaning of life, sharing their stories from their […]
Quick – get your Tamagotchi African villager avatar – lest you be trapped by your own limited, soon-to-be-obsolete pen-and-paper way of learning. Watch out for them drugs, kids! You might end up accidentally cheating by outsourcing your work to yourself. An awkwardly short list of nothing particularly awkward or noteworthy. Riot grrl#~~!!* Oh! The shame!
If only we could complain about the language requirement too! For some, New York is just too cultured to be entertaining. Solution: head to Jersey for some mindless American fun. Half a day of classes in bad weather is like forced ROTC. Or being in the navy. Face-to-face encounters are obsolete. Everyone’s moved on to cyber voyeurism […]
American Universities are great. Columbia University is great, has always been great and will always be great. Yay us. Chocolate, wine and phallic shaped things may turn you on. At least ten people are moved by ten of the sappiest movies of all time. Maybe bad advice lies at the heart of a bad dating […]
A fascinating, if one-sided, account of Columbia’s labor relations. You want to change the popular image of fraternities, you say? Bwog suggests you stop the 3:00 AM screamfests. Fusion for fusion’s sake is sacrilege. Yes, people are still making mixtapes. On CD’s. Even art students can study abroad. But be warned: the Mona Lisa is […]
When Columbia first moved to Morningside, it was filled exclusively with beautiful buildings. Smart people in our other schools are either wringing their hands or curing diseases. Spec agrees that GS students are cranky and asks one student to reminisce about smoking in their heyday. Independent bookstores are invested in their communities and impact local […]
On academic freedom: “Their exclusive medium and stylized rhetoric render them inaccessible to a large portion of the public whom they might endeavor to engage and educate.” We don’t get cable, so we don’t buy TV’s, so we don’t watch their soaps. A prominent campus figure explains what exactly Conservatism is. Kenneth is real. Image […]
Forty-eight straight hours in Butler is an unusual path to martyrdom. It’s autumn in Morningside Heights, and we’re evidently more hungry than genuinely wistful. Yoga has always been a scene, but now it’s official. DJ Earworm talks business; he’s actually quite articulate. Midwesterners are quaint.
Perhaps you’ll one day watch every movie ever made, not just read every book ever written. Not all librarians hate comic books; some are even archiving them. We’re stuck in a bubble with our ideas but at least we’re right. Your favorite bouncer has a stack of fake ID’s. It’s the exact opposite of asking […]
