With the end of, hopefully, our last online semester comes another edition of Bwog Staff’s favorite running series. Read up on the music that defined our semester while getting vaccinated and practicing social distancing!
This past year has been nothing short of a disaster for many people, but working, learning, and socializing through our computer screens has produced a few silver linings that we’d want to stick around.
A noose was found at the Union Theological Seminary on Wednesday afternoon in an incident currently being investigated by the NYPD as a hate crime.
Bwog can somehow explain the past 22 days of housing, but the mystery behind the resurrecting 6-person Plimpton suite will remain unsolved.
Much to the surprise of local residents, Columbia signed a community agreement regarding Inwood construction. Said residents aren’t too happy—the agreement was finalized without their input. One local questions whether or not Columbia really intends to be a “good neighbor.” Hey! Some of us do make really good banana bread… (Spec) In light of Apple’s […]
So it would seem, judging by some of the kill reports on CU Assassin’s website. While some are as descriptive as last year and others blatantly to the point, one thing remains constant as the obvious thought and dedication that was put into each of these ambushes will show: these assassins take their jobs seriously… […]
Dear Professors, We hear you. Sometimes we under-hear you (read: 9 a.m. class), but when we’re very lucky, we overhear you! And not just while you’re weighing in on important international issues; we also hear those cavalier comments you improvise in lecture.

New York schools are increasingly suspending students for even minor rule violations. Just ask Postcrypt.

Barnard TA, Igor Sorkin (of no relation to Aaron), was charged with texting naked pictures to a […]
And now Scabbers is gone!
The New York Mets have a new manager. This will be your year, guys! No more unfortunate Met-ahpors... (ESPN) The Northwest Science Building is ruffling some feathers. Is it interdisciplinary enough? SEAS-sy enough? Transparent enough? At least it reflects clouds —a magic mirror to the sky! (Spec) This past weekend everyone was kvetching about getting […]
Thursday night we gave a forecast of impending Harry Potter madness. Today we follow up with a retrospective of all the wonderful Potter pride that we witnessed. Here are some highlights: Lots of Columbia/Barnard people were spotted at the 3:30 AM IMAX show at Lincoln Square. One gay student on campus wore a t-shirt to […]
Finally, the movie event you’ve all been waiting for the first half of the movie event you’ve all been waiting for! (Hey, everyone’s got to make a living!) We here at Columbia have always been Potter-conscious, so how is everyone gearing up for the big day night? Head Girl Hannah Goldstein finds out: Costumes A number […]
Harry and the Potters are coming to Columbia. Yes, they’re a real band—kind of like a wizardy version of They Might Be Giants. Anywho, the sophomores of CCSC decided to make a video about the upcoming Potterpalooza. Ryan Mandelbaum stars as a super badass Harry, and Deaton Jones plays a menacing Malfoy. Bwog was a […]
