New York City is packed with amazing culture and inspiring art, but sometimes it’s difficult to break the Morningside-bubble and experience it all first-hand. “Where Art Thou” is a weekly guide to interesting and notable
Bwogger Nicki Camberg is tired of hearing the story of the founding of Barnard every time she leaves her dorm, and has decided to address this issue head on. We were all once there. Bright eyed
Welcome to the equally solemn and enthusiastic beginning to your morning. We take the good with the bad, and so should you.
On Friday morning, the Columbia University Band Alumni Association sent out a press release announcing that the marching band will continue to play at future athletic events, including the homecoming game this Saturday.
It’s a new installment of Cooking with Bwog! In honor of the upcoming Hallow’s Eve, Bwogger Cara will provide you with a no-muss no-fuss potion to get you through midterms.
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 […]
Last night, students gathered in Dodge Fitness Center to protest a culture of intolerance as represented in the wrestling GroupMe. Students held up print outs of the messages and stood silently along the walls of Dodge from 8:30-10. At 10, they moved the protest to Low. Merriam Webster has reported that their most looked up […]
The New England members of Bwog were wrong–the “blizzard” actually delivered, and there’s enough snow out there for a snowball fight! Whooopeeee! Here’s the scoop: 3 PM on Low Steps. Everyone’s invited. Be there or be square. Wear warm clothing. Bundled warriors via Wikimedia Commons
The Barnard Columbia Solidarity Network (BCSN) started protesting on Low Steps at 3:30 today, with a sizable but not overwhelming crowd. The network amended a set of demands from the Student Power Coalition (SPC) in order to reflect the race critical lens supported by its membership—member groups include the Mobilized African Diaspora (MAD), Columbia Divest for Climate Justice, Divest […]
An a Capella aficionado visited the joint concert of a Capella groups at schools that share “Bears” as a mascot. Alliteration with the letter “b,” punny group names, and a bucketload of talent guaranteed. Last night, Barnard Bacchantae and the Brown Bear Necessities took to Low Steps for a short concert, serenading the school back from […]
The rules of protest and free speech are under review at Columbia, and today all students can make their voices heard at the First Rules Town Hall from 4-6 PM in Havemeyer 309. Time to speak up. This morning, hundreds of Hong Kong police raided a pro-democracy camp. About 800 officers infiltrated the protest zone […]
From Chewbacchanal to Abacchalypse to Barkanal, some of us have seen many a Bacchanal come and go. But for those who haven’t—or for those whose memories of said festivities are suspiciously “blank”—here’s a little refresher course in what to expect. When and Where Today. Duh. The performances start at 2 pm, and will go ’til […]
Columbia, Barnard, and Teacher’s College support staff are protesting today, right now, just north of the gates. UAW 2110’s contracts come up for review this year, and the University is asking for cuts, which the unions do not wish to grant. A mix of union workers and OccupyCU are walking around, drumming, and shouting things like, “What do […]
Waldo was sad when he heard about Columbia’s ranking as the most stressful school and wanted to cheer us up, so he took a break from visiting museums, cruise ships, and other places where large numbers of people congregate. He visited the Low Steps in the middle of a small street fair yesterday. Can you […]
How else to explain the forty degree swing in five days? Yes, Bwog’s weather meter currently reads 67 degrees out. But without much sun, the steps are sadly somewhat less than crowded. If you’re still wavering on whether to venture out, just remember: it’s back into the 40s after Sunday. – JCD
