Don’t You DARE Think There Are Any Seats in Hamilton

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.”

Magazine Preview: Hamilton Hellivator

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 […]

Ah, To Be Young Again

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!

Son of a Building Block! It’s Woody!

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, […]

Collisions in Hamilton

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: […]

Everybody Has A Secret Crush On Hamilton

Bulletin boards on the first three floors of Hamilton–on both staircases!–are plastered with blank Hallmark Valentine’s Day cards. Our cynical heart beats again!

Hamilton Decked Out By Kindly Giant

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 […]

Never Underestimate the Power of Bored, Hungry Comp Sci Students

…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.

Metaphors Planted in Front of Hamilton

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 […]

Fire Alarm Interrupts Finals

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 (bwog@columbia.edu) if you have any. UPDATE 7:31 PM: Tipster Srijata Chattopadhyay informs us that […]

A Bwog PSA

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 […]

Secrets of Hamilton Hall

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 […]

A Centennial Treat

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.                   […]
