From Eastern Europe to right outside your window, the world’s ready to let the good times roll.
Columbia Facilities and Operations announced this afternoon that they will begin removing tents around campus in response to the University’s changes in COVID-19 safety protocols.
It’s a cheery 59 degrees outside! Take your work out on the lawn, bask in the sun, read on the steps… squirm (?) on Low Plaza…
There is a very loud and very exciting sorority initiation going on on Low Plaza right now, next to the east fountain. Lots of singing and dancing and chanting. It’s for ΣΛΓ. It’s the most fun sorority initiation Bwog’s ever been to! Update, 8:45: It was the Sigma Lambda Gamma Sorority. That’s ΣΛΓ. Sorry our […]
About 125 seniors gathered on Low around noon today to honor the time-honored tradition of sippin’ 40s on the Steps forty days before graduation. Public Safety was there in spades, kicking seniors off who didnt have their beer concealed, including those who had their beer in Nalgenes or other clear containers. Seniors with beer in […]
Columbia Right to Life is protesting against abortion on the Steps: Update, 2:20pm: We’ve updated the post indicating that the group was Columbia Right to Life.
Obviously the best thing to do on a beautiful Saturday would be to move your couch onto Low Plaza and/or play an intense game of freeze tag. Photos by MJM
As of 1:55 PM today, there was not a single seat in the Reference Room. Even the bad ones in the back are taken! Bwog swooped in, planted our stuff (sorry sorry), and headed out to the Steps only to find a wood coffin planted on Low Plaza. A few students in black suits handed […]
AccuWeather reports a balmy 45 degrees in the big 10027 right now. These two brave souls have the right idea. Party on.
Little darling, the snow is melting, lalala, dododo. February is over, the sun is shining, and it’s March 1: Day 1 of Israeli Apartheid Week 2010! Columbia Students for Justice in Palestine have constructed an Israeli Apartheid Wall on Low Plaza. SJP members are assembled around the wall handing out literature and answering questions. The […]
Anyone who has ever been late for a class knows that running up the uneven Steps of Low is basically impossible, even for the athletically inclined among us (i.e., not the Bwog staff). Many Columbians and pedestrians alike have puzzled over why the Steps’ spacing is so adverse towards mobility. Bwog’s Megan McGregor reports with […]
If you’re in need of fur coats, chicken kebabs, or chunky necklaces that harken back to Santa Fe circa 1990, stop by the crafts fair on Low running today and tomorrow.
An eerie calm descended on the usually bustling Low Plaza early this afternoon when a group of Bhutanese monks performed a demon subjugation dance ritual known as Tum Ngan. Intended to eliminate evil spirits in the surrounding area, the ritual comforted many still shaken by the presence of a Jumbo McCain while frustrating Ghostbusters enthusiasts […]
College Walk finds itself abuzz with excitement this afternoon, playing host to an array of colorful happenings. Spring is here to stay, much to the delight of protesters and peddlers. First, as the beat of a conga drum wafts through the air, one finds the ubiquitous trinketry, cheap spring scarfs, and ethnic food of a […]
Unless you’ve been closeted in the stacks all day, you probably heard the shindig out on the Plaza, which will raise lots and lots of money ($64,445 and counting) to benefit the American Cancer Society. It’s also rather entertaining for passersby, with various field-day type activities filling every corner of the quad. More pictures after […]
