It’s the first Friday of the semester! Take a break from obsessively rearranging your schedule to catch up on global and local news with Bwoglines.
Welcome back from winter break! While the days of relaxing in warm and sunny places or skiing in fresh snow are gone, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy yourself in the city during the winter.
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.
Columbia Housing may have issues, but that shouldn’t impact our impressions of the many facilities workers who clean and repair our dorms on a daily basis. As we approach Thanksgiving, here are some ways that you can show your appreciation to the hardworking people who keep our dorms from falling apart. Say hi to facilities when they’re on […]
Today is the first day of classes—a.k.a the week where you sit at your computer desperately refreshing SSOL hour after hour. And if you’re looking for that one class that will advance your intellectual journey (and give more credits than Pilates), we’ve got your back. After the jump is last year’s list of must-takes; bolded […]
As per tradition, we put our heads (see: gmail accounts) together and compiled this long list of the things/people/places/things/snow penises for which we are most thankful. Contest, corroborate, or add your own in the comments. It’s that time of the year where we’re allowed to get a little corny (<– Thanksgiving pun), so on that note, […]
After you’ve bounced around College Walk amiably signing up for several dozen club listservs, there comes a point when you regret reckless innocence. Now you have 40 extra emails a day that you might have read during NSOP, but now you just don’t have time to care about capoeira or Parliamentary Debate. Department listservs can be […]
We asked and you answered. Below, read the list, compiled from all of your comments, of classes to take before you graduate. The classes are separated by department, then professor, with a separate section for Global Core. Bolded classes are being offered this semester. Today was the first day of registration for freshmen, but registration […]

There’s something comforting about having identical resolutions every single year. In the spirit of futility/solidarity/peace and blessings, Bwog staff presents its collective resolutions for the new year. Add your own in the comments. Happy 2011!!! Food & Drink Drink more water, fewer caffeinated beverages Learn to drink hard alcohol again Stop eating cereal out of […]
With the New Year just under ten hours away (for East Coasters), Bwog waves goodbye to 2008. If you’re around New York, and enjoy a big party, there’s always the Times Square celebration (where police expect a million people this year). We have already written our year in review, but the new year also brings […]
There’s a silence over campus, which will only be punctured by tonight’s Primal Scream. Heads hunched in Butler or in dorm rooms, the collective Columbia population slogs through the start of exam week. Ugh. But we at the Bwog wanted to focus on the light at the end of the tunnel – all those things […]
In animal cruelty, actually. The eminently reasonable, not-shrill-at-all People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has ranked the Worst 10 College Laboratories, and Columbia comes in 10th, behind places like Harvard and Johns Hopkins (well, we beat Yale). At least the Columbia monkeys have people on their side, (watch out for the ominous voice of […]
