Students From 24/7 Columbia Demonstrate In Lerner Hall

Members of 24/7 Columbia, an organization dedicated to improving healthcare on campus, are holding a sit-in in Lerner Hall tonight to protest “the lack of in-person, accessible healthcare,” according to a statement sent to Bwog. The group’s goals are the creation of a 24/7 rape crisis center and health center and round-the-clock access to CPS, […]

Today’s college students may be youthful, physically fit, wildly intelligent, extracurricularly engaged, and former “leaders” of their high schools, but they’re not actually superhuman–they, too, are subject to illnesses, injuries, viruses, diseases, and unwanted pregnancies. Bwogger Rachel Deal investigates just how easy it is to make appointments at Columbia Health, a *potential* cure for these […]

Health Services Was Helpful Yesterday

Upperclassmen, you’ve seen this one before. Peter Sterne, CC’14, writes from the Health Services Skit. NSOP is a strange time when normally impersonal and bureaucratic instruments of the administration try to humorously (and cornily) appeal to incoming, naïve freshmen. Every department does things differently: the Division of Student Affairs gives us Dean Shollenberger, who has […]

No, not Alice!

Is nothing sacred? Fox News (which one tipster spotted shooting b-roll on campus earlier today) having run through every other permutation of “wild sex” and “Columbia students,” decided to take aim at Bwog’s favorite site at Columbia and possibly ever: www.goaskalice.com, our source of wisdom on everything from dried fruit to dental dams.
