The Fall 2020 semester saw students faced with less-than-ideal living situations, financial struggles, and more extenuating circumstances than we can count. Here are some ways our professors have shown compassion and understanding in these stressful
Professor Robert G. O’Meally shares what makes Black boxer, Jack Johnson, the ultimate Harlem Renaissance man by employing various mediums and contextualizing his influence through the lens of various prominent Black figures.
This year has come with a lot of surprises and adjustments, one of which has been the switch to online learning. As we learn to adapt to this new format for classes, Bwoggers have picked
Liking the 2020s? With this year as the opening act? No thank you! Senior Staff Writer Victoria Borlando will happily stay in the 2000s where it’s safe, thank you very much.
Bwog is conducting a story on transgender and/or nonbinary student experiences during the Fall 2020 semester and we need your input!
This week, GSSC looked a little different, holding a town-hall-style meeting with students and senior Deans. Bwog gives you the question-by-question details.
Signing into and out of East Campus on a weekend night is a special kind of hell. The lobby is so crowded with Barnard students, NYU folk, and miscellaneous friends & family that guests can hardly move. If you do manage to get past the gates, your (pitch dark) elevator ride up to the 20th […]
We sent two baby Bwoggers to their 11 am FroSci lecture as they guzzled a bottle or two of the cheapest white wine International had to offer (−OH, ya feel?). Throughout the lecture, they managed to develop a drinking game AND learn about black holes (though we all know that their consumption induced them into their own black hole of drunkenness). […]
The latest Fro-Sci extra credit assignment was a quite cultural one; diligent yet jaded Fro-Sci pupil Dylan Cooper tells of his Sunday afternoon with his Fro-Sci class at Miller Theater. The Trials of Galileo. Sounds riveting, right? Well…what if the chair of Frontiers of Science urges all Fro-Sci students to attend the Special Event, which […]
This morning the Committee on the Core Curriculum released a statement announcing that Frontiers of Science has been removed from the Core Curriculum. The statement claimed that the main cause for the cancellation was the class’s overall lack of useful education. It cited interviews and conversations with students that stated “literally nobody” enjoyed the class or […]
In the media coverage still focusing on Monday’s Froscanity, cartoonists at the New York Daily News are now depicting their version of the episode. We think cartoon Dr. Hughes looks pretty good in the nude, but he’s not wearing a g-string for us to tuck our $45,000 checks into. Cartoon from the New York Daily News
If you think Frontiers of Science is a boring, useless class, think again—the Core’s most infamous class went wild today. According to our reports, the first class of the physics unit was running a bit late when the lights went out. When they came back on, professor Emlyn Hughes was in the spotlight. Then Snoop […]
In lieu of the usual CCSC meeting, members of the Council and student body gathered to discuss the Educational Policy and Planning Committee’s review of Frontiers of Science. Bwog’s council correspondent, Maren Killackey, reports. For Sunday’s Frontiers of Science Town Hall, administration procured a bevy of well-spoken individuals who voiced a variety criticisms regarding what […]
Bwog’s resident Particle Pontificator again rounds up all the top science stories for the week and breaks them down for the rest of us. Fortunately for those who prefer to not be spontaniously annihilated, the universe is overwhelmingly made out of matter and virtually no antimatter. But why? An international collaboration of physicists have used powerful supercomputers to calculate the decay process of a kaon […]
Overheard from Dr. Evelyn Hughes during a Frontiers of Science lecture today: “Just because physicists don’t show videos of frogs doing it, that doesn’t mean we aren’t thinking about it.” We’ll follow suit and spare you, but while we’re on the subject, we may as well introduce you fresh batch of College folk to what […]
To further his ongoing efforts to reach out to students and increase transparency in the wake of Moodygate, interim Dean Valentini held a town hall last night. Deantini held the court in the oaken glory of Havemeyer 309, where he’s given countless lectures and even once had one burst out in song. Seasoned Town Haller Conor Skelding sat in. Over […]
Almost as famous for the epic proportions of his beard as for his pedagogy, the chair of the Astronomy department and Frontiers of Science mastermind Professor David Helfand will be relocating to Canada. It was reported Monday in a local newspaper in a remarkably hand-wavey way that “Helfand is now on a long term leave […]
Four Columbia professors have been elected fellows of the American Academy for the Advancement of Science. (Columbia) According to a recent Rolling Stone Interview, Weezy won’t be coming back to New York, stating “they’d have to give me U2 money” to lure him back. Start fundraising Bacchanal! (Boombox) Kraft created a vending machine that chooses food for […]
Freshpeople! You tired, you poor, you huddled masses gathering to take the Frontiers final today: we promise, college isn’t always like this. To provide some last-minute assistance, here are some haikus sent by one of your own. If you have other haikus, Frontiers-related or otherwise, leave ’em in the comments. Good luck, friends! Two distributions […]
Hey you freshpeople, good luck on your Frontiers final today! If you need some last minute guidance, consult the University of Sydney’s bizarre Frontiers of Science website, which chronicles the 1961 Sydney Morning Herald comic strip called, uh, Frontiers of Science. “Everyone is science-conscious these days,” the intro to the comic strip explains, “and this […]
