Earlier today, Columbia College announced the names of 23 seniors it has inducted into the Phi Beta Kappa national honor society. A remaining 8% of students in the Class of 2017 will be announced in the spring. (Don’t give up hope!). Here are the new members: Michael Abolafia Paul Bloom Christie Corn Filipe de Avila […]
Because tens of thousands (jp, jp) of high schoolers and their anxious parents have arrived for tours on this rainy Monday. We want to set a good example, don’t we? Roone Cinema was packed with overachievers waiting for an info session, and parents flooded out in streams to ask Bwog where the bathrooms were. Observe […]
Can you miss the good old days of something you never actually experienced? Everything I know about politics I learned from Stuyvesant High School Why can’t Broadway be just like it used to Wherefore art thou, print media! Catwalk it back to Venus de Milo, she says
Bwog was just stopped by a pair of high school pollsters from New York’s Urban Academy, looking for Columbia students’ opinions on the upcoming election for a project. Help ’em out! The young lady is wearing a purple jacket, the young man is sporting a navy blue backwards cap. They’re outside Lerner holding clipboards now. […]
Bwog’s suburban diarist Madeline L. is spending the summer away from the city — and she’s enjoying it. Here, our diarist disects the nature of the suburban summer, and why it beats Morningside anyday. Summer in the suburbs is built on a founding myth; an event within a circle of friends that becomes retold in […]
In which Bwog correspondent and past-life high school orator, Andrew Flynn, sojourns to a recent Harvard high school debate tournament and waxes philosophical about the current state of that ever so nebulous academic activity. When the wind-chills of February announce their arrival in Morningside Heights, when long papers and dry readings begin to weigh […]
In which Courtney Douds communes with the poet of misspent suburban youth. I predict this to be the least ironic post ever written for Bwog. This past Tuesday, I attended the first of two concerts given by the band Marilyn Manson and their infamous frontman of the same name at the Hammerstein Ballroom. And though […]
What’s with the pinwheels on the Butler lawn? Bwog wondered too–apparently, kids from a Long Island high school are setting up 6,000 of them to represent the number of people who die every year from ALS, better known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. It’s like a cure is blowing in the wind, or something.
Aside from the lethal shooting of an NYU student, the burial of the kids and adults who didn’t make it out of that Bronx house fire, and about two days of above 65 degree weather, you didn’t miss much in NYC. But at Columbia, on the other hand…just look at all of the exciting things […]
This just in from Bwog correspondent Addison Anderson: “There are two male high school kids standing on College Walk, one of whom wants a Columbia student to take the SAT II for him. He asked me if I was a Columbia undergraduate, and when I said yes, he said “Okay…so the SAT II is tomorrow…and […]
USA Today has chosen their 2006 All-USA High School Academic First Team, a ponderous name for 20 kids who have WAY too many activities in their young lives, including–we kid you not–inventing a patent-pending wearable breast exam training apparatus using diaper gel, cashews and a bikini. Math problem: Yale got 27% of those who didn’t […]
Feeling the heat from the indignant masses who have been protesting the Facebook’s decision to contaminate its virgin collegiate domain with the abbreviated ramblings of high school students, Mark Zuckerberg finally broke the silence with a response: Hey, Facebook understands that some of you may be upset that high school and college students can now […]
