This morning, Barnard President Sian Beilock announced plans for the school for the 2020-2021 academic year, following plans announced by other universities yesterday.
Columbia and Barnard have announced a finalized academic calendar for the 2020-2021 school year. The pre-orientation programs for first-years have either been canceled or will be held online.
The youngest suspect in the Tess Majors investigation was sentenced to 18 months under the custody of the Administration of Children’s Services following a guilty plea to one count of first-degree robbery.
Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic and turmoil in the New York City juvenile detention system, the youngest suspect awaits sentencing after pleading guilty for his involvement in the death of Barnard student Tess Majors.
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).
He’s an important guy. Here are some things you should know about him: he founded the New York Post; he went to college here, but did not graduate; he is Michael Cera. If you want to learn even more, a biopic on Alexander Hamilton airs tonight at 10 pm on Channel 13. According to the […]
CUZ THERE AREN’T. ANY. Or in Butler. And no one is gonna let you forget it. Observe: Signs from left to right read: “This Room is in use!,” “DO NOT DISTURB!,” DO NOT TOUCH CHALKBOARD PLEASE,” “OCCUPIED!” and “TAKEN.”
Nina Pedrad takes a ride in the Hamilton elevator and then makes up a story about it for The Blue and White. It’s fiction! You wanna know how it happened, gumshoe? It was daytime and I was late (typical). Packing those snacks for the subway always turns into AP Ziploc Baggies. My low heels bolted […]
As Bwog dragged our weary old feet out of Hamilton today, we saw three adorable lil’ rascals climbing the big tree over Hamilton lawn. They were a heart-warming bunch to say the least. Note abandoned bicycles and scooters at the bottom of the tree. Climb on, comrades!
Tipster Claire Bullen alerted us to the presence of some half-obscured, rather colorful posters around Hamilton seemingly advertising for Spanish tutors, yoga classes, an Archeology club, proof readers and drivers. Curious about a unifying theme, on closer inspection these posters all subtly alluded to Pixar’s Toy Story… It turns out they are in fact decoys, […]
Spotted earlier in Hamilton, condensed novels applied to the staircases courtesy of Collision, the annual art exhibit/actually fun party at the end of the year sponsored by Art History Underground. Its a game! Get your literary thinking caps on! Update: Lil’ Salvador Dali Hannah Wilentz sent us a few of the word-lisions in the stairwell: […]
A concerned member of the Columbia Fashion Police (also known as the Oxymoron Squad) has alerted Bwog to Alexander Hamilton’s new accessory. It’s certainly fetching, but is it a political statement? That depends on whether it’s meant to be an army patrol cap, a newsboy cap, or (the likeliest candidate) a brimmed tam o’shanter. This also might just be the latest way […]
…who apparently are the heroes behind this bold endeavor, which seems to have ceased publication but is still the most wonderful blog devoted to a vending machine that we have ever seen. Columbia, meet Robby.
Now that Columbia’s buildings (and the 25 feet surrounding those buildings) are officially smoke-free, the ashtrays in front of Hamilton — the longtime home of many a clove extinguished in the minutes before a humanities class — have been turned into flower pots. The War on Tobacco has taken a most poetic turn. Photo by […]
Tipster Daniel Tyner-Bryan is reporting that just a few moments ago, the fire alarm started going off in Hamilton, thereby interrupting finals and forcing all the students, teachers, and bluebooks onto the lawn outside. Stand by for updates/photos and tip us (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any. UPDATE 7:31 PM: Tipster Srijata Chattopadhyay informs us that […]
Because we know how cramped and claustrophobic Butler is at the moment, Bwog would like to remind you that the lovely, large, (basically empty) classrooms in Hamilton are open and available and yours for the taking. In fact, Bwog is sitting in a Hamilton classroom right now and the blackboard is filled with notes from […]
Bwog happened to be passing through the front doors of Hamilton, as we all do several times a month, and had a companion point out something very interesting. Outside the wooden doors that Columbians know and love are a set of enormous, bunker-style doors, engraved in brass, and slid sideways behind the cement facade. (They’re […]
Tipster Nishant Batsha Reports: “There’s a bunch of tents set up in front of Hamilton to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the building. I asked some guy dressed up in colonial-era clothing and he said it was open to “students, alumni, and donors.” Free pastries!” Sounds good. […]
