Upon arriving to Columbia, many first years were getting ready to deal with a lifestyle shift never before considered: having a roommate. Although many of us grew up sharing rooms with siblings, or having a roommate at boarding school, college roommates are a whole new ball game. So, new Bwogger Chenoa Bunts-Anderson decided to ask […]
Hey, new first years! Yeah, you! In just a few weeks, you’re going to embark on one of the greatest, sweatiest, and cringiest experiences of your whole college career: NSOP. In order to make this experience the Best Ever, a few of us old timers here at Bwog have compiled an NSOP bucketlist (based on our […]

You might already have been aware of this fact if you saw our post on the subject, or if you’ve, well, been in any […]
When the Columbia social scene gets tough, look to the escape tactics of these found first-years: retreat to glass-filled local establishments so that people know you’re out, but that you’re above whatever is happening in Mel’s. And make sure you bring snacks! But more about Mel’s below, and we want to hear more about your […]
You’ve read Columbia’s official packing list, you’ve cross-referenced your own list with those of your friends and the other kids on the Columbia Class of 2019 group—now what? Bwog put together a list of a few items to bring that you may not have thought about to help with everything from party preparation to actually passing […]
Last night, we received the following picture, captioned (edgily) by a tipster: From another anonymous tipster: Three first-years on Broadway and 114th: F1: …then we found out that he’s the son of the diplomat to Belgium. F3: Good thing it wasn’t Libya! Ohhh! An awkward silence. F2: Too soon? Too soon. More anonymous eavesdropping from […]
