While many students are spread out across the world this year, new staff writer Anna Eggers looks at art pieces in the 1880s-1940s collection at MoMA to give a glimpse into what awaits students in
Fret not, freshpeople who didn’t make it to campus: Sydney Contreras is here to help you recreate the oh-so formative first-year crying experiences that make and break your spirit!
New bwogger Alexandra Tsorvas attended a medical school training event that discussed the unequal power dynamics inherent in doctor-patient relationships and how to mitigate them.
Youngweon Lee, Editor in Chief of Bwog, spends a lot of time on Twitter. So does Hamilton Deli, her to-go spot for delicious hot sandwiches located on 115th and Amsterdam. This may or may not be a “literary” analysis. You can decide. In case you didn’t know, Hamilton Deli has a Twitter (@HamiltonDeli). In addition […]
It’s been weeks – maybe even months. I still remember the first time I saw you. It was in early fall. I hadn’t eaten at Hewitt since NSOP (I, a bright-eyed young first-year, was still exploring everything Columbia Dining has to offer) and I didn’t miss it. It was still warm out; I was sitting […]
A late night diary entry. A stream of consciousness musing at 5 am. Dear Bwog, It’s been another long week and a short weekend. Saturday’s gone, and Sunday’s sunrise is near us. I meant to go to bed a lot earlier tonight, but that didn’t happen. I slept 14 hours last Saturday; I wish I could […]
Commas and periods always go inside double quotation marks in American English except in the case of a parenthetical citation. Columbia University is in the United States of America. But what is this? A comma outside of a quotation mark? Shall we take another look? You can find this here. Even though I linked four different […]
People care about public spaces, and maybe nowhere as much as in New York. Columbia’s most prominent public space, and definitely its most photographed, is the Low Steps. Where other universities might have wide open spaces and vast lawns, Columbia students perch, like the characters of Gossip Girl on the steps of the Met, on a cold stone […]
If you have a Twitter account, you’ve probably seen your fair share of funny bot accounts. One of them keeps track of how far through the year we are (80% through 2017, as of today!) while another tweets every color. We here at Bwog were tired of automation not yet taking our jobs, and so we… uh… repurposed […]
Tonight, we want to wish a very happy birthday to our Bagel-in-Chief, Amara Banks. Despite what the bouncers at 1020 may think, she’s now 20! Whether she’s sporting the dog filter, haunting the halls of Butler, or throwing bits of (actual) bagels at us, she’ll always be our beloved Bagel. Happy birthday, Amara!
Ricky Wolff is a second semester senior and newly minted (LateNite) Bwog guest writer who recently gave up trying to find an internship. Nevertheless, we all must push on. Ambling past the familiar Tom’s facade, the author noticed peculiar logos plastered on the oft-photographed windows, and fashionable young people occupying the booths usually reserved for hollow-cheeked math majors […]
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 […]
Have you ever wondered how you can take control of your local сове́т—err, student council, rather? Do you ever pay attention to your college’s elected council members and think “This is ridiculous, I could do that under budget and ahead of schedule!”? Well, over years of acquiring and consolidating information about Columbia’s political arena, we’ve acquired […]
