Even with the many Google Docs of information out there right now, there are still some resources that fall through the cracks when it comes to supporting BLM.
On Saturday night, Bwog received screenshots of messages from the GroupMe of Columbia’s chapter of Phi Gamma Delta (FIJI).
Bwog is no stranger to weird happenings on campus that end up going viral. This one, though, has us stumped. Is this some sort of Baccha90s guerilla marketing campaign? Who is the “ring pop princess” and what does she want from us? Is this her organization’s manifesto? What follows is all of the evidence we’ve managed to […]
If you seal a cat in a metal box with a decaying radioactive substance and a jar of cyanide, isn’t the cat both alive and dead until you open the box and look? The paradox that this week’s Frontiers of Science lecture presented caused an artistic freshperson to go Banksy on some quantum mechanics.
While you were still cramming for that last final (or perhaps drinking the memory of it into oblivion), one of your talented peers was off spray-painting walls underground. Perhaps inspired by our own Mark Hay’s forays into the tunnels earlier this semester, Columbian artist and “bandit belle” Angelique Chandy decided to try her hand at tagging, […]

The latest issue, available this week, has a lot of good stuff: a debate on the relative merits of shaving or not, the history of Columbia’s forgotten post-1968 protests, and a conversation with Improv Everywhere’s Charlie Todd (all available soon on Bwog).

Who gave the College Libertarians chalk?! UPDATE 12:24 PM: Bwog daily editor David Iscoe spotted the chalky Libertarian and/or ironist last night. Says David: “I saw him drawing another one (“Ron Paul cured my apathy”) on the sidewalk near (I think) Kim’s, the guy was a somewhat […]
An email from Dean Colombo to Carman residents reveals that some homophobic graffiti was applied to the pillar outside the freshman dorm on February 11th, and was removed about a week later. Colombo’s email, reproduced below the jump, asserts that the slow response time in dealing with such incidents will be looked into in the future […]
The system’s far more intriguing history is written on its walls, says Bwogger Armin Rosen. Tunnel graffiti is a running history of everyone who found their explorations momentous enough to permanently commemorate…. But there’s nothing boastful or egotistical about the hastily-scrawled notes found on practically every flat and indeed most of the cylindrical surfaces in […]
