If you haven’t set foot on campus yet today…you can check out Columbia University Marching Band (CUMB)’s latest Orgo Night posters below! The first round of posters arrived last Thursday. These ones are a little more equivocal about the location. Instead of BUTLER, they say, BUTLER??? We’ll keep our fingers crossed for this coming Thursday. […]

CUMB–do you pronounce the B or not? The world may never know, but Bwog sent Dailier Finn Klauber to check out CUMB’s recruitment process last night. Last night’s events conveniently occurred at the same time as sorority rush. Gotta choose one or the other, we guess. Here’s the run-down. It’s a good thing I wasn’t […]

The second (and more controversial) round of Orgo Night posters have hit Butler bulletin boards (you can look at the first round of posters here). As one would expect, the posters contain Donald Trump jokes (Is he still funny? The world seems undecided), a play on Hotline Bling’s album art, and yet another reference to […]

Two anonymous baby Bwoggers present their review of Orgo Night: Fall 2014 Edition. We sent the freshmen because they didn’t know what to expect. Also they’re less jaded. Last night at 11:30pm in Butler 209, everyone realized—probably—that they had forgotten to take a shower. Sweaty bodies in sweaty sweaters carrying their sweaty parkas milled around […]

Once again, exams have begun, but not before the Columbia University Marching Band ruined all of our studying beforehand, like they do every year. Yes, last night was Orgo Night and Bwog was there. Here’s what we saw: By 11AM the only seat left in Butler 209 was a wobbly one with no plug.  Twelve hours […]

Bwog isn’t really clear on exactly what Basketball Mania is, but we hear there will be free things in a heated building so we’re interested. Head to Dodge tonight to pick up a free long sleeve T-shirt, see performances by groups like the hip hop dance crew, Raw Elementz, and most likely partake in some […]

The Columbia Marching Band has not always been known for their political correctness, and this time around it seems as if they have taken their controversial humor a step too far. Many people were offended by their Orgo Night “Gaza Strip: everyone wants a piece” promo fliers and took to notifying the administration. Following this, […]

Update: The band has provided a video showcasing assorted jokes and songs from last night. Relive the action below. Last night, Butler 209 played host to Orgo Night, one of Columbia’s time-honored traditions and the reason many upperclassmen choose to move off campus. Bwog will have a full review later today, but for now, check […]

It’s a story of love triumphing over society that has captured the hearts of Brits, admirers of royalty, and of course the media, from British tabloids and American gossip mags to the New York Times. It’s […]

Tonight was Orgo Night, that (rare) cherished Columbia tradition, in which The Cleverest Band in the World occupies Butler 209 and strives to “lower the curve on the orgo exam” by telling raunchy jokes with topical music interspersed. Likely due to a number of recent events, 209 was buzzing by 11:10 p.m. By 11:20 Public […]

Kraft Field. Update: COLUMBIA WON! REJOICE!
