ABC has just voted to join SGB in not complying with Barnard Student Life’s new Posting Policy. This is a big step as ABC represents over 150 student groups. In their statement (below) they announce that ABC will take full responsibility for any “sanctions” given to ABC groups who do not obtain approval before flyering. The […]
For the second year in a row, Columbia all-male a cappella group the Kingsmen has sparked controversy around campus with a provocative flyer campaign. Last year’s debacle featured a photo of a Kingsman himself with the text, “Rape me” and was followed up with an apology from the singing group—they had learned their lesson, it […]
Sean Zimmermann reports from last night’s meeting In one of the speediest (and most poorly attended) ESC meetings yet, council members celebrated Secretary Heidi Ahmed’s birthday, discussed PMSing (or post midterm snacking), and heard updates on the Diana. SGA liaison Jessica Lewis announced that there was “lots of Diana discussion” at the last SGA meeting. […]
Sean Zimmerman reports. The Engineering Student Council held its inaugural meeting with the new, almost-uncontested freshman class council, as well as new University Senator Cherie Meyer. Bathabile Mthombeni from Columbia’s Ombuds Office opened the meeting. Baffled readers might ponder what branch of Columbia’s bureaucratic web the “Office” represents — perhaps another dubiously named den of […]
Photo via DemocraticUnderground.com Bwogger Emily Ahn kept her eyes open through all of this past week’s CCSC meeting. The second meeting of the year started promptly with the introduction of Bathabile Mthombeni, the Associate Officer of the Ombuds Office. A little known service, the Ombuds Office, located at 660 Schermerhorn, offers a “confidential, informal, […]
It’s truly a tragedy of convenience that, apart from class and free food, the sole reason we leave our rooms is to find out what’s happening on campus. And what better way to indulge our laziness than to eliminate the flyers that clutter campus walls and move them online? PostATime.com, the first branch of a […]
Well we’re giving them some anyway in light of the dapper gentleman they’ve chosen as their poster child (maybe Andy Samberg helped pick out the picture?). Oh, and their catchphrase is kinda clever in an inadvertently self-negating kind of way… Also featured on CUCR posters for Friday’s Horowitz visitation: a man hanging from a rope and […]
Proof from Hamilton 3 that flyering is a legitimate art form: In completely unrelated news, Bwog saw this rather militant-looking vehicle parked outside its window this morning. Though momentarily worried that our nation had suffered an overnight descent into Soviet-style martial law, Bwog’s fears were assuaged when it saw that it carried a banner reading “Elite Shooters.com.” We’re glad […]
Found in Sulzberger and on a South Lawn bulletin board. This photo has been taken down at the request of someone who, over the phone, claimed that he was the person pictured, but did not identify himself. UPDATE, October 10: This comment thread has been removed at the request of an administrator who said that […]
Eash Cumarasamy discovered this thought-provoking juxtaposition of flyers on one of the pillars of Lerner Hall- “Intercultural Cook-Off” vs. “Obesity Panel: Is America Too Fat?” It reminded Bwog of a similar double-take it did earlier this year, when Toward Reconciliation, the conflict resolution group, posted a “Why Can’t We Be Friends?” flyer atop one asking “Want […]
Overheard in EC: Rugby Guy #1: We should make posters to get people to come to our game. Rugby Guy #2: No, you have to get them approved. Rugby Guy #1: What? We can’t just make some on our own? Rugby Guy #2: No. Rugby Guy #3: What if we made, like, little posters, that we […]
