It’s the first Friday of the semester! Take a break from obsessively rearranging your schedule to catch up on global and local news with Bwoglines.
Welcome back from winter break! While the days of relaxing in warm and sunny places or skiing in fresh snow are gone, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy yourself in the city during the winter.
Good morning Columbia! As homework begins to pile up and you realize the semester is actually, really, 100% starting, know that Bwog is here for you when you can’t waste your entire day reading the
Here, Bwog generously provides a closely-held recipe for Russian Tea (which neither comes from Russia nor contains tea), and it’s the perfect Beverage-in-Mug to warm you the hell up.
This Bwogger witnessed an epic faceoff in their Postmodernism class yesterday, which led them to question: if “blackberry” means “I love you,” what does kicking a cockroach out of a classroom mean?
While originally suspicious of any e-mail tip regarding a “Three-Minute Shower Challenge” event, we were happy to read on and learn that the one taking place this afternoon will be both child-friendly and teeming with smoothies. Masturbation jokes aside, it’s Earth day tomorrow, which means that you should start celebrating today. And you can do so […]
Phew, now that we’ve gotten that Gossip Girl headline out of our (collective) system, we can go on Bwogging until the urge strikes again. No, but seriously—if you’re looking for a barely worn Columbia Masters Ceremony graduation gown, have we got the deal for you! Check out this overseen Craigslist ad to work out the […]
The beautiful people of Gossip Girl have been here before. And they’re here again, this time in and outside of Riverside Church. Apparently they’ve been filming since Tuesday, from 6 am to 10 pm. That means you’ve got the rest of tonight plus Thursday and Friday to gawk to your heart’s content.
Before you read this, click play on the video below. Remember that day when we all maybe thought that Barnard would be written into the Gossip Girl plotline and they’d film at Barnard all the time and everything would be pretty much the same, except some people would be excited but most people would be […]
During filming, a Bwogger approached a GG tech person and asked which characters were coming to Barnard. “None of them,” the tech-lady replied. “We’re just pretending they go to Columbia.” UPDATE: More pictures from the filming, this time of Serena (!) thanks to the quick lenswork of Elissa Mendez-Renk:
Columbia and Gossip Girl have been pals for a while. There was the time that real-life Blake Lively was going to take classes here. There was that great episode “New Haven Can Wait” (relentless, GG, relentless!) filmed on campus that the CW pretended was Yale. Then they filmed all around campus all the time, and […]
Here is some news: the Emporio Armani Fall/Winter 2011/2012 ad campaign is public! Here is why that news is sort of relevant: those ads were all shot on our fair campus mere months ago! Take a look: there’s the model shrouded in smoke wearing all black next to a building that looks like Uris, the […]
The beautiful people of Gossip Girl have returned to campus. The cast and crew are set up and shooting on 116th near Claremont, and tipsters are abuzz with sightings of “good ol’ Blair Waldorf” (who, we might suggest, looks like a yellow Carmen Sandiego) and “Lacrosse Hottie and Actor-Extrodinare Chase Crawford” giving “a performance for […]
Evidence: (1) There was actually a giant Earth on Low Plaza today, brought to you by Global Brigades, which will be holding information sessions with free food tonight in Earl Hall at 7:30pm and 9:00pm. (2) Gossip Girl is set up at on Claremont Ave. near 120th St., perhaps poised to shoot on campus. (3) […]

Head over to 114th and Broadway to sip some free coffee and see Kayte Grace (of […]
Say hello to the first member of the class of 2013: Blake Lively, from TV’s Gossip Girl program. There she is on the right, looking studious. Lively mentioned in a recent interview to W magazine that she’d like to take classes here, at “Yale”, one day a week. Apparently, “the possibility of attending Columbia University […]
Bwog has pretty much used up our Gossip Girl references and cliches at this point, but we were nowhere near GG-ed out enough to miss tonight’s Big Episode: “The One in Which Those Kids Pretend Columbia is Yale” aka “New Haven Can Wait.” We spent an enjoyable hour squealing with our friends every time we […]
Columbians, ready yourselves: only 7 short days until the very campus you call home is featured on the greatest television show in the history of the world. Next Monday’s episode promises to be full of grand, sweeping shots of Earl and what looks like the Math Lawn, the only catch being that Columbia isn’t Columbia […]
