As fummer is upon us–that is, the time between summer and fall when the morning chill requires a sweatshirt that later gets soaked in sweat around 1 pm–we shall celebrate the equinox early and in
It’s hard to deny that New York is an expensive place – it seems as though, in order to do anything fun in the city, one must have unlimited time and money. Bwog strongly disagrees, and Staff Writer Jack Treanor is here to help with a fun, easy-to-follow itinerary that will save you money. 10:30 […]
We have all noticed Ferris’s inconsistent music patterns—from soul-soothing piano acoustics to baby-making R&B, you have spent countless hours in the pasta line thinking, “how the hell did they come up with the playlist today?” Wonder no more. Sandy, the Ferris kitchen manager, has recently revealed the mysterious DJ’s identity to me in a short […]
Congress has apparently decided that it won’t be passing serious legislation on privacy for the time being. Instead, states will be responsible for making sure our search histories deepest darkest secrets aren’t available on the web. (NYT) THE RED SOX WON THE WORLD SERIES. AGAIN. (NYT but also do you live under a rock?) At least one […]
Early this morning, Columbia College Student Council began publicity on a week-long music festival in the days leading up to Bacchanal this year (April 9-14). The schedule of acts is below.

Welcome back to Ask Bwog, a feature in which we answer the many burning questions of this campus. If you have ever had the pleasure of taking the Official Columbia Campus Tour, you probably heard this story from your tour guide: when Ghostbusters was filmed at Columbia in 1984, the university set up a fund […]
Statistics show that people who watch The Office do better in life. Bloomberg’s ouija board decides the fate of the public schools. What do you mean there’s no way to find out? I want to know exactly how sexy the country’s first belly dancer was. Now. Plus, the mystical powers of upper Amsterdam revealed!
Image via Examiner.com The CU Bartending Agency doesn’t seem to be running as smoothly as its sister operation across the street. Gender (and web-design skill) differences aside, the concept is the same, but now a message on CU Bartending’s homepage alerts “Valued Columbia Bartending Agency Clients” that the agency continues to be “unable to […]
Here is their mothership and its adjoining, exploratory cruiser, which is a trusty gray van named “Microwave Satellite Technologies Inc.” Both satellite and van were abandoned, so the reasons for their visit are unknown.

A tipster sends evidence in the form of a photo of the sidewalk in back of Earl Hall: Three S’s, the (dark?) mark of one of Columbia’s […]
