Columbia Class Of 2020 Shares Its College Essays

In this next part of our introduction to the CC/SEAS Class of 2020, we decided to take a different approach. Sure, we could share all of the funny, shocking, and downright strange messages we had access to—and believe us, we have a lot of screenshots that didn’t make the cut— but somehow those short excerpts don’t seem to fully […]

Alums Writing the News Are the News

The New York Times is reporting some big news for Marcus Brauchli, the positively dapper gentleman pictured to your right. Brauchli, CC ’83 and Spec alum, is on the brink of being named the executive editor of the Washington Post. He was formerly the managing editor of the Wall Street Journal but resigned in April. […]

IvyGate’s Hibernation a Thing of the Past

Gather round Columbia, it’s time to re-welcome IvyGate into our browsers and into our hearts. Naturally, it has returned dressed to the nines, with a new WordPress redesign and fresh-faced summer editors. Bwogger Justin Vlasits favors the mouse over chalk-underlines in the new masthead (see above), while a Yalie friend of Bwog noticed that clicking […]

It’s Even Summer for the Internet

Bloggers among us take note: The good folk at IvyGate are looking for a handful of summer editors to maintain the site between the months of (late) May and August. Last year’s summer editors actually stuck around to edit the site full-time, so it seems it’s possible the job could turn into a full-time gig. […]

It was time

Bwog was partly saddened and partly relieved to see that the founding editors of Ivygate are handing the reins over to younger blood–nobody should really be running a college gossip rag when they’re more than a year out of the game (and now they won’t have to face defeat again). Besides, they’re off doing much […]

The huddled masses arrive

In the spirit of symbolic welcome, NSOP is throwing a party for the class of 2011 on the site where many others before them waited in lines and were herded through stations: Ellis Island. Like the whole thing. An NSOP insider has informed us that the children will be transported via chartered ferry to the […]

Post readers must really hate us

The New York Post, which was trolling around facebook and e-mail aliases for sources yesterday, fingered the assistant Comp Lit professor whom students accused of giving away answers, in characteristically rabid fashion.  Spectator confirmed and has an interesting story to go with it.  The Daily News gave it two inches.   Ivygate thought it was […]

The Price of Loyalty?

The internets are afire with talk of this weekend’s “Modern Love” column in the NY Times, authored by one Ashley Cross, a reputed student at our very own university. The mysterious Ms. Cross, who could not be located by Facebook, Columbia directory, or truly thorough Googling (unless she happens to own this site), has come […]

Awaiting your book deal

Wow, that was fast. Those self-deprecating charmers over at Ivygate, BW alum Chris Beam and former Spectator Editor-in-Chief Nick Summers, have landed a nomination for a 2006 Weblog award in the Educational category (!). In a field of ten, they’re currently trailing only www.michaelberube.com–now ask yourself, which one will actually help you get through the […]

Hot For Teacher, Democratically Speaking

You know it’s true: your professors are hot. Well, maybe not all of them. But, if like most of the rest of us, you’ve ever been sitting in class and were suddenly overwhelmed by the desire to have Molly Murray or Anders Stephanson come out from behind the lectern and give you a private tour […]
