Neither the denizens of Butler nor the drunk homecoming revelers could help but stop and read what Columbians had to say about their ~lion pride~. We think this pretty accurately represents Columbia: The view from Alma on a clear night Not having poop in laundry machines (O_o Yale) My 140 sq foot double I’m bigger […]

In a valiant effort to drum up anticipation for the homecoming game against UPenn, the various student council groups on campus have been organizing a series of events. Yesterday, for the first time, the pep rally was held on Low Steps instead of in Dodge gym. This may also be the reason why this is […]

ESC: Rivalries, Roofs, and Residence Halls

That’s right, break out your calendars because we’ve got an impending celebration on our hands. With just about two short months to go until the big official kickoff, which will […]

Bwog Sports Sunday: Homecoming Heartbreakers

It was a heartbreaking Homecoming weekend for the Lions as team after team fell to Dartmouth by the slimmest of margins, often watching leads disappear. For those 11,127  fans that survived their pre-games and made it into Wein Stadium (not just to the tailgate), probably covered in beer and runny face paint, it was a […]

CCSC: Tackling the Important Topics (Like Sweaters and Pumpkins)

Despite the relatively large number of agenda items, last night’s CCSC meeting was a bit like running on a treadmill: a lot of exerted effort, but little net accomplishment. Updates: Not much by way of Class Councils, though 2016 is off to a rather impressive start, tackling an SGO revamp, planning a DJ-battle-type party, and […]

Barnard’s Student Government Association meets every week, and every week we send our best Barnard bear Renée Kraiem to bear witness.

These factors opened […]

Fortunately, old man Bwog has been flying the friendly skies/riding the rails/cruising down the open road to get outta here for many […]

CCSC: Legos and Logos

CCSC battled it out in the Satow Room. Maren Killackey lived to tell the tale. VP Funding Kevin Zhai solicited proposals from the Council for changes to the Lerner SGO (Student Government Office) space. Among the top suggestions were “bright colors,” “fish tank,” “really fun couches,” “nothing,” and “get rid of that weird computer bay.” It […]

Bwog Sports Sunday: We Win, We Lose, We Still Booze

Homecoming, fondly referred to as Christmas in some circles, is an intoxicating occasion in which students, parents, and alumni alike play out their state school fantasies by engaging in heavy drinking and casual spectating. This year was no exception. Columbia fans didn’t let the construction at Baker Athletic Complex tarnish their school (read: drinking) spirit. […]

Wear Blue, Get Food

It’s as easy as that! So easy that we feel you’ll even be able to understand if we give you directions in the form of a poorly written poem. Without further ado: Have midterms got you feeling blue? Then perhaps a small cupped cake will do. It may not help you pass, And might add […]
