Yes, I will miss campus and sitting in rooms learning about all sorts of things with my peers, but there are some things that I’m ready to just say goodbye to.
Yesterday evening, the Inter-Greek Council (IGC) held elections for their board, including the election of a new Judicial Board Chair. An anonymous tipster sent us details on the election process, accusing current IGC Director of Internal Affairs and Sigma Nu member Teddy Finkelstein, CC ’17, of unfair organization of last night’s elections. In addition to organizing the elections, […]
In the past few days, Bwog has received many tips and comments about the hazing scandal within Columbia’s Greek community. We reached out to IGC, Student Affairs, students, etc. for more detailed information, especially after news broke on Wednesday night.

We checked in […]

Bwog’s intrepid Student Government correspondents Caitlin Lynch and Mahrah Taufique report from last night’s proceedings, just before elections kicked off. SGA: The meeting focused on the issue of sororities: There is a possibility that Barnard girls won’t be allowed to participate in Greek recruitment during Spring 2011, because CC and SEAS have decided to fund only […]
Last night’s SGA meeting focused on funding for BC Greek life. At present, SGA does not fund groups that require dues, as per their constitution. Student Activities Fees given by the SGA can only go to events that serve the broader communities; the possibility of a Greek public list serve was discussed, which would make […]
Every year, the various governing boards show off cool Power Points and generally grovel before the Funding at Columbia University committee (known by the almost-scandalous abbreviation F@CU) for a nice cut of your student life fees. This year’s numbers were just released, and the various allocations are as follows: Activities Board at Columbia: $366,303.61 ($413,607.22 […]
