Good morning Columbia! As homework begins to pile up and you realize the semester is actually, really, 100% starting, know that Bwog is here for you when you can’t waste your entire day reading the
Here, Bwog generously provides a closely-held recipe for Russian Tea (which neither comes from Russia nor contains tea), and it’s the perfect Beverage-in-Mug to warm you the hell up.
This Bwogger witnessed an epic faceoff in their Postmodernism class yesterday, which led them to question: if “blackberry” means “I love you,” what does kicking a cockroach out of a classroom mean?
Editor in Chief Isabel Sepúlveda provides the Columbia community with an actual email she sent to an actual professor teaching an actual class that’s guaranteed to get you off the waitlist. Here’s to your soon-to-be
Senior Staff Writer Jake “Jake-Luc Godard” Tibbetts woke up before 10:00 am on only one occasion over winter break: Monday, January 13, when, at 8:18 am EST, John Cho and Issa Rae announced the nominees
After hearing about toddler frat Sigma Alpha Epsilon having their recognition withdrawn, Bwog’s Sarah Faith Thompson sat down with two former senior brothers. They spoke openly about what happened under the condition of anonymity. The night began with a pregame in a frat member’s suite where pledges were invited via mass text message. Senior members […]
Events Editor and Senior Staff Writer Sarah Faith Thompson has delved into places unknown, into places unseen, into places that maybe you didn’t actually know existed on campus. As we prepare for a new dean search, we sent her to figure out exactly what the Dean of Student Affairs does. Her report on the Office […]
Around this time last year, Bwog brought the class of 2016 up to date on their Deans. While much of that information is still relevant, the class of 2017 would do well to heed some more recent developments in Columbia’s Deanosphere: the departure of campus celebrity Ke$ho and the thrilling conclusion to Feniosky Peña-Mora’s tumultuous […]
In a remarkable change of heart from last semester’s public scolding, Dean Shollenberger now whole-heartedly, enthusiastically supports this year’s Orgo Night, and encourages you to do the same!!! Perhaps the greatest use of ellipses ever Want more? Orgo Night is next Thursday, May 9th at 11:59 pm in 209.
Deantini and Dean Goldfarb just sent out an email stating that “After nearly 14 years at Columbia, Kevin Shollenberger has announced that he will be stepping down from his position as Dean of Student Affairs for Columbia College and The Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science to become Vice Provost for Student Affairs […]
After a hazing scandal that put ZBT in high risk of losing its charter and subsequent controversy and mockery, a statement by the fraternity announced that the decision to rescind the charter was officially reverted. Spec has the full story, reporting that KevSho made the decision after meeting with ZBT and Greek Judicial Board leadership. While […]
The Columbia Marching Band has not always been known for their political correctness, and this time around it seems as if they have taken their controversial humor a step too far. Many people were offended by their Orgo Night “Gaza Strip: everyone wants a piece” promo fliers and took to notifying the administration. Following this, […]
Last night, Deans Shollenberger and Martinez attempted once again to gather community input on the fate of Columbia’s newest residential acquisition, the former St. Hilda’s House convent on 113th. Seeing as Bwog and Spec were joined by no less than two legitimate voices of the “community,” the event was less a conversation and more a […]
Earlier this evening, KevSho sent out an email to the student body. Touching on Student Life Fees, the yet-unallocated convent, and the Brownstone Review Committee, it used agreeable language to address student dissent. Some of what he wrote on that last point—the 114th brownstones—didn’t line up to Bwog. KevSho began by avowing to “value discussion at every […]
Newly elected CCSC President Karishma Habbu is the newest member of PrezBo’s committee to find a new Dean of Columbia College. Following PrezBo’s announcement of the committee last week, students Kenny Durrell, Barry Weinberg, Alex Frouman, and Aki Terasaki wrote a Spec editorial urging KevSho to add an elected student representative to the team. “While we do not […]
As he does from time to time, last night PrezBo opened the doors to his grandiose abode on Morningside Drive to a number of students and administrators for the latest in his Rooseveltian series of fireside chats. A pair of Bwog editors were in attendance, and positioned themselves on a soft couch to listen in on the night’s […]
So tomorrow, our women’s basketball team is facing off against Harvard. In case you were planning on trying to squeeze onto those crowded bleachers for some Division I action, you can eat pizza beforehand for no money. After all, nothing goes with not playing sports like vegging out. Here’s the deal: Deans Shollenberger and Martinez […]
The following e-mail just went out to the families of CC students. We’re still waiting on a statement from Moody-Adams herself, which is starting to seem a bit overdue. The Office of the Dean declined to comment. Dear Columbia College Families, As many of you have doubtless read in the news [that’s us], Michele Moody-Adams, […]
While we are still waiting for official comment from the University administration, we have received multiple confirmations from a wide spectrum of students, alumni, and faculty that Michele Moody-Adams has resigned as Dean of Columbia College, and that the news was sudden, unexpected, and as of yesterday afternoon, a complete surprise to many administrators, up […]
