The ephemeral Low Library sits in the middle of Columbia’s campus, hosting the famous steps where we congregate late at night. I, to date, have never actually seen someone enter Low Library, so I asked the Bwog Staff to assist me in contemplating what really happens inside.
Attorney General Eric H. Holder, Jr. CC ’73, LAW ’76 spoke to Columbia students about his new book Our Unfinished March: The Violent Past and Imperiled Future of the Vote in an event alongside Professor Frank A. Guridy at Low Library on Thursday evening.
Columbia is investigating an incident of antisemitism on its Morningside campus reported late Tuesday in which a swastika was painted on the steps of Low Library. University Life condemned the incident in a statement on its website.
Bwog (pretends) we got our hands on the diary of one of the CDCJ activists who slept in Low for 8 days and…let’s just say…well, let’s let it speak for itself. Enjoy! Friday, 4/15 Dear Diary, It’s the morning after my first night sleeping in Low Library. I feel…different. I can’t believe it happened. The […]
Columbia Divest for Climate Justice (CDCJ) members just ended their 8-day occupation of Low Library, explaining, in a press release, that PrezBo will not be on campus all next week, and, moreover, they believe the administration is “on the path toward fossil fuel divestment.” Dozens of students entered the library last Thursday afternoon, beginning the […]
If you go to Low Steps right now you might see people in suits walk up to the entrance of the building, then turn around growling in frustration when they realize that protesters have caused the building to be locked down. This lockdown is part of CDCJ’s protest in support of fossil fuel divestment, which […]

Send it to tips or use our anonymous form. Senior Staff Writer Alexander […]
Before heading downtown to tell FoxNews that Columbia loves Hannity, Herman Cain spoke in Low last night at the invitation of the College Republicans. He gave what seemed to be his standard hour-long speech outlining what he perceives to be a time of crises in America, including an “economic crisis,” an “illegal immigration crisis,” a […]
Right now! Go find the CU Dems in front of Low to low-cate some free hot chocolate. And in case you were wondering about the ruckus in Butler 209 last night, it was all part of the Dems flyering campaign. Moral of the story: You’ll never get real work done in 209.
Unless you were stuck all day in some windowless room in Pupin—in which case Bwog is sorry—you can’t have missed the torrential winds and elemental forces that struck campus today. It was raining sideways! Or whatever else your grandma says when it rains a lot. But anyways, it was all worth it since Michael Rady […]
Earlier today, correspondent Carolyn Ruvkun attended a Flash Mob, run by three students from the “arts incubators cluster” of the School of the Arts. Instructed to bring a book and download the “Listen to Low” podcast, this bwogger gathered in front of Butler with about fifty other people. Flash Mob participants then marched inside Low […]

Braving a long line, cold rain, and French grammar, Bwog’s Ambassador to France Contessa Gayles reports from President Sarkozy’s speech today: After waiting in a line that stretched from the main entrance of Low Memorial Library down onto rainy College Walk, members of the Columbia community joined the scores of press to hear Nicolas Sarkozy, […]
