Arts Editor Maya Campbell interviews and sees the work of Extra Credit Ensemble, a theatre group led by two current Columbia students, in a special PeopleHop/Arts Review combo post.
Continuing Bwog’s rare tradition of saluting the sons and daughters of Alma Mater, we would like to take the time to recognize the achievements (and stupefying failures) of some of Columbia’s most recent headline-making alumni. We begin with Lee Phil-sang, a Korean journalist who earned his M.A. and Ph.D. here. Lee was just selected to become […]

Bwog is proud to bring you gossip from abroad – because everything is funnier when it’s not American. While doing his time in the ‘Nam, your loyal correspondent noticed the following exchange gracing the guestbook in the museum at the former US marine base of Khe Sanh: Intruders are doomed to be kicked out, no […]
