In the latest continuation of the running series, the Bwog Staff discusses the albums, old and new, that defined their semester. If you need something new to listen to, check these out!
A 13-year-old male was arrested on Thursday in connection with the passing of Tess Majors, a freshman at Barnard College, according to reports in multiple news outlets.
An 18-year old Barnard student passed away after being stabbed in Morningside Park tonight during what police believe to be an armed robbery and assault.
Bwoggers Aditi Misra, Eliza Staples, and Sarah Perry went to an advance screening of Little Women exclusively for Barnard students. Here are their thoughts on the experience.
Most bagels, when they turn twenty years old, grow stale and moldy, but not this one. Our own bagel is twenty years old and beautiful and thriving. She is a beautiful bagel and a perfect bagel in chief. Here is photographic evidence of her thriving. I found every single picture on my phone and computer […]
So Furnald. Honestly, it’s the ideal dorm. It has AC, per-floor kitchens, mostly singles, a pretty lounge, and a good location, right next to Lerner and Pulitzer. It’s quiet and clean. Why is it branded as such a shit dorm? It has such a connotation. “I live in Furnald.” “Oh, do you not like having […]
Everyone loves hugs. That’s a fact. If you think you don’t love hugs, you’re wrong. You probably just don’t like hugs from strangers or something. Or people around you just don’t know how to give good, proper hugs. I saw the perfect hug outside of Butler 209 the other day. It made me feel happy for […]
A few days ago, we received a lengthy tip from a “Randall Owen” allegedly detailing the planning and culmination of a large scale prank on an ignorant EC suite. One of the members of the suite, after his roommate graduated this past semester, conspired with his RA and his impending roommate to create “Randall” under the pretense that […]
For you who suffer in the deep bowels of Butler, the nooks and the crannies on campus, slouching your back, straining your neck over your books or computer screen, you who epitomize the tragic hero… tonight is your opportunity to let out your stress, to sound out the banes of your existence, to regurgitate your […]
Earlier today (or, technically, yesterday), Bwog received the following tip: Caught a close up of the feasting hawk responsible for the rain of feathers in front of butler today. A former staffer suggests that this is the same hawk dubbed “hawkmadinejad” back in the 08 09 era. Pic attached. Same bird? The bird in question […]
From time to time, we like to arrange the various elements of Columbia life into a ranking of sorts, dividing the good from the bad, and the beautiful from the unseemly. In the light of Delta Gamma’s latest successful iteration of their philanthropic Anchor Splash, we felt it necessary to rank the public showcases contained in the […]
The eighth floor of Butler is most commonly viewed among Columbia’s undergraduate population as Butler’s wasteland—private graduate student carrels line the hall like sepulchers, screaming uniformity and academic browbeating. But while the finer advantages of Butler 8 may not include earning precious Butler social capital, precocious grad students—and perhaps some adventurous undergraduates—voice their frustration by inscribing marginalia upon the padded carrel […]
The first weekend at Columbia is ending, and many doe-eyed freshies are getting accustomed to Butler (or is Butler getting accustomed to the freshies?). Either way, some are bound to spend a number of late, late nights in Butler, taking advantage of the calm and emptiness to pour their hearts out into their work. For […]
This evening, Managing Editor Maddie Stearn had the opportunity to interview Lucas Zeppetello, SEAS ’16, one of the Columbia Divest for Climate Justice (CDCJ) protesters currently inside of Low Library. The interview was somewhat difficult to orchestrate (think Rapunzel), but the results were interesting to say the least. [Note: we usually reserve Late Night Bwog […]
Knock, knock. It’s the students of Barnard. And, Hewitt, we’re sick of your shit. We pay thousands of dollars in meal plans every semester – meal plans we’re required to buy – and then, when we need you most, when we’re wallowing in despair over our unfortunate return to class after a glorious spring break, we venture […]
It’s that time of night–when the moody and lonely Columbia student within you comes out, and you decide to drunkenly take a walk to “clear your head” or whatever. Here’s a playlist for lying(/meditating/crying/sobering up) on the sundial. Try to refrain from shouting “Take me now!” to the heavens (been there, done that). Kifak Inta by […]
Late Night Bwog is a beautiful and precious concept. It’s a time when our readers ask deeply contemplative questions such as, “Who the fuck is running Bwog these days?” and our editors ask, “Who scheduled a review of rubber bands for 2 am?” Both of those quotes appropriately exemplify our organization. Bwog is a place […]
It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single student in possession of a stack of index cards must be in want of a rubber band. Other fasteners—binder clips, scotch tape, yarn, plastic boxes—are scarcely worth considering, for reasons that won’t be discussed here. And yet, even with the certainty that one needs a healthy collection of […]
