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.
Feeling crafty? Have you thought of a cool way to pimp your dorm room (pipe cleaners!!!!)? Bwogger Henry Litwhiler takes us to the newly opened Maker Space to talk about the innovative opportunities that are now available. For those currently harboring detailed blueprints for an erotic tea set under their floorboards, Columbia has launched a surprisingly generous […]
As you make your way through the snow and slush that have recently taken over our campus, consider taking shelter inside one of Columbia’s most… interesting buildings: The Seeley W. Mudd Building, home of Columbia engineering. It was built in 1966, as a celebration of Satan’s 1300th anniversary. Go ahead, make your way there—you’ll find […]
Eat free pizza, not computers. ADI (you know, the group of cool cats who brought you DevFest) is hosting a ”Meet & Greet” this evening from 6 to 8 pm in the Botwinick (Gateway) Lab on the 12th floor of Mudd. We hear that pizza and drinks will be served, pleasantries and small talk will be […]
The approach of midterms week means Dante’s Inferno is to be found in the sweaty hands of freshmen this week. Urban Spelunker Gavin McGown was not content to simply flip pages: he was jonesing to explore! Mudd’s basement is a dark and terrifying world Dante surely would have assigned to heathens and traitors. Huddled as […]
Photo by AB Bwogger Anish Bramhandkar started his year off right by heading up to the 12th floor of Mudd to catch a few minutes of Disney/Pixar’s Monsters Inc., spotted on one of those ubiquitous flatscreens. Why is SEAS spending its considerable brainpower on kids’ movies? Bramhandkar suggests the display is designed to convince […]
A Bwog classic, Campus Corners is returning from a two year hiatus — for one day. Here, we bring you some of Columbia’s less crowded study spots, if only to get you to leave Wien’s warm embrace for a couple minutes. Getting into the computer science lounge isn’t easy. Last year, every undergrad was sent […]
Or so claim some senior bio majors evacuated from the building a few minutes ago. They say that their professor told them to get out as soon as they smelled smoke coming from one of the upper floors–other students stood around in puzzlement, and few of the evacuated seemed to be enjoying the all-too-brief break […]
Manhattan poll takes calculated, er, “responsible” stance on expansion: city’s “success…difficult to absorb”. There’s always Bounty. Mudd to get greener (does that mean less muddy, or more?) Police rubber-stamp 11-block strike walk… …but in opinion, we find self-conscious Iraq caution, and the same message with a lot more braggadoccio…plus, to top it all off, love is […]
Overheard in the Carman elevator, a first-year host talking to a prospective student: “We don’t really go into the city that much, but there’s a great bar scene on campus right across the street. And if that’s not for you, there’s great campus life too–in Mudd, there are Halo parties and everyone gets on the […]
