Rumor has it that Columbia’s core and Barnard’s foundational requirements have one ultimate purpose: to provide adequate cocktail conversational skills. This narrative is evidenced by the fact that both Columbia and Barnard have their own respective bartending agencies. If you know a Columbia/Barnard bartender, chances are they have some pretty cool stories about their previous gigs. […]
Awakening our Democracy is Columbia’s lunchtime conversation series about race and ethnicity disparities, justice, and other issues affecting CU and the rest of the world.

Yesterday, politically savvy Bwogger Tamara Barriot took time to assess whether “The Donald” means what he says about getting the Latino vote. As refreshing as discussing the viewpoints of our two political idols can be, this was not Tamara’s first rodeo. Any debate regarding Donald Trump’s care for Latinos will likely spark controversy, and yesterday’s was no […]

You wanna be on top? We compile the best — to the worst — of Columbia this past month. We were generously tipped this concept and accept the challenge. Hillary Clinton.

Sean Zimmermann reports from last night’s meeting In one of the speediest (and most poorly attended) ESC meetings yet, council members celebrated Secretary Heidi Ahmed’s birthday, discussed PMSing (or post midterm snacking), and heard updates on the Diana. SGA liaison Jessica Lewis announced that there was “lots of Diana discussion” at the last SGA meeting. […]
For most of our readers, the graduation ceremonies have finished, and after watching all the webcasts, we still can’t tell them apart. They all have graduates throwing things/falling asleep/not paying attention, administrators reminding said graduates about the opportunities that await them, and lots of light blue and school pride. The one area that does have […]
– An eager crowd awaits the band’s entrance If you missed Orgo Night, fret not – the show was recorded and will be available tomorrow on CUMB’s blog.

NROTC at Columbia. Just like a coin-flip. “Healthy Aging Centers,” aging all […]

Hey, welcome to this liveblog of Hillary Clinton speaking about pay equality at Barnard. Bwog’s thankful this thing is starting late, because we were a little late getting to the James Room in Barnard Hall, where about 60 students are now watching a livefeed of the podium at which Clinton will speak on a large […]
