You’re in lecture, you look around…to your right, Johnson Jayson is trying to fit four back to back classes in one day; to your left, Barney Ard is trying to take 21 credits at once.
This Thursday, the Columbia Debate Society hosted a public debate with the Rikers Debate Project – a program teaching competitive debate skills to students held in Rikers Island jail – in Lerner 555. CDS members
New York City is packed with amazing culture and inspiring art, but sometimes it’s difficult to break the Morningside-bubble and experience it all first-hand. “Where Art Thou” is a weekly guide to interesting and notable
Thanksgiving is one week away, so take time out of your Saturday morning to get informed on current happenings and impress your extended family with your ability to have a finger on the pulse of
Bwog’s Saturday Daily Editor, Lauren Kahme, attends a roundtable discussion on the rapid climate change occurring on the Tibetan Plateau, a massive region of land in Central and East Asia categorized by its high elevation.
In the latest installment of our ongoing series of EIC reflections in celebration of Bwog’s big birthday, our second-ever Editor-in-Chief, Lydia DePillis, remembers life back when Gmail was new. Lydia remained a journalist, and now works for the Washington Post. Few things have made me feel older than the realization that Bwog, this little project we […]
Our friends at Gawker have taken a liking to one special Barnard gal, and her name is Lizzy Fraser. You might have seen her in your 20th century art class, or, failing that, probably at St. A’s. According to the gossip site, she’s one of the “Upper Class of 2008,” specifically in the “New Edies” […]
Terrible 12s, you haven’t even set foot on campus yet and already the whole Internet is abuzz with your goings-on. In fairness, this latest outburst comes not from a Terrible 12 himself, but from his embarrassing mother, who (according to Craigstlist via Gawker) is looking hire a babysitter for him, for “support” — “support” apparently […]
Gawker is linking to Vanity Fair‘s just released “All Access Summer Guide,” which features the city’s best beaches, bars, restaurants, and pools. Second on VF‘s list of the Best Bars for Drinking Under the Stars? None other than everyone’s favorite backup for when 1020 is just too crowded, the Heights. “Columbia students drink their cares […]
Over at Gawker, which time and time again has displayed a curious fascination with the Good Ship Spectator, it seems there’s been a tiff between Speccie Alexandria Symonds and star of MTV’s delightfully realistic The Paper/soon-to-be NYU student Amanda Lorber. Lorber apparently took issue with Symonds’ review of The Paper published nearly two months ago […]
Gawker, whose staff apparently checks all the Columbia news websites every ten minutes for changes, is muscling onto Bwog’s turf a little bit this afternoon. Namely, catching Spec with its pants down with the following correction tucked at the bottom of yesterday’s caustic anti-Tibet editorial: CORRECTION: This submission misstates that one Dalai Lama admitted to […]
Bwog is a simple website. We like hawks and free coffee and pictures of babies in snow. But this morning Bwog was thrust into the unflattering spotlight of the New York media thanks to a fact-checking-averse ex-Speccie with a Gawker byline. You can read the post here. The story has inexplicably gained some momentum, and […]
It’s like Columbia Day over on Manhattan’s favorite gossip site. Now we’re elitist for complaining? (oh, and Ivygate‘s got video). Tasti rival moves in! Bwog misses Soupman. We’ve been trying to avoid this one, but since so many of you seem to think it’s newsworthy (seriously, stop e-mailing us about it), Matt Sanchez has been […]
9:00 PM! BWOG TURNS ONE! THE WEST END! With that Tourettically over with, a quick self-absorbed indulgence. The Bwog started as a mere twinkle in the eye of the staff of The Blue and White. Editors had been kicking around the idea of as website for awhile, but opinions on how we should present its […]
The internets are afire with talk of this weekend’s “Modern Love” column in the NY Times, authored by one Ashley Cross, a reputed student at our very own university. The mysterious Ms. Cross, who could not be located by Facebook, Columbia directory, or truly thorough Googling (unless she happens to own this site), has come […]
A few notable links that have come in over the past couple of days: 1) Andrew Delbanco’s essay in The New Republic, War College. The chair of American Studies department, Delbanco reflects on his teaching of LitHum and the difficulties of understanding war within the university. 2) An update on the final exam incident at […]
