Earlier today, Spectrum noticed that anti-frat fliers were posted around campus in response to yesterday’s announcement that several frats—including two involved in Operation Ivy League—are finalists in a competition to get a 114th Street brownstone. Turns out that B@B decided to extend their trolling from the Internet to IRL in what user Geordi La Forge […]
Many say that interest in Greek life at Columbia is at an all time high, and it is so. Just a few days ago, PanHell picked AOII and Gamma Phi Beta to fill the two openings they set aside for new sororities, and Greek life flexed its upvote muscles in that comment thread. Last May, the IFC approved a […]
Late last night, we a tip of the anonymous sort that PanHell (Columbia’s PanHellenic Council, the umbrella group for the AXO, DG, SDT, and Theta sororities) will be choosing between four sororities that want to establish chapters at Columbia: Kappa Kappa Gamma, Gamma Phi Beta, Alpha Omicron Pi, and Zeta Tau Alpha. Two of these […]
Update: Sadly, Yale edged us out for the victory, 59-58. If you were ever planning on attending a Columbia basketball game, tonight’s the night to try it. It’s the first ever Student Appreciation Night or, in other words, the Athletic Department’s attempt to lure the more apathetic members of the Columbia community to Levien with […]
In the wake of Operation Ivy Leauge three fraternities lost their houses. Bwog asked to AEPi, PsiU and the IGC how life has changed and what they plan for the future. Pike declined to comment. We first sat down with Matthew Renick, President of AEPi. Bwog: How has your recruiting process changed? Our recruiting process is […]
CCSC got it on (in a record 29 minutes!). Brian Wagner watched. Apparently, many of the food trucks around campus are here without permits.

Zoë Camp tells all! Of course, the night’s main point of interest was the revelation of the Greek Life poll results. But last night’s SGA meeting had other notable moments.

The Barnard Greek Life polls have opened!

[…]
There’s been lots of talk about Barnard and Greek Life recently. We’re kind of confused, so we figured you would be, too. Basically, SGA is trying to figure out whether SGA/the Barnard administration should formally recognize (and therefore fund) the umbrella organizations that oversee the sororities, as well as the sororities themselves. We checked in […]
Barnard’s administration held a “town hall” meeting of the strong and the beautiful last night to discuss recognition of sororities. Bwog was there. Barnard’s Town Hall meeting on Greek Life recognition and funding drew ten full tables worth of of letter-sporting sorority girls from Barnard and Columbia, SGA members, and a sprinkling of administrators and […]
A full report from the SGA Town Hall on recognition for Barnard Greek Life will be up tomorrow morning, but we wanted to let you know not to expect a solution to the dilemma just yet; Bwog’s been informed that a decision will be reached “by the end of the semester.”
