The Fall 2020 semester saw students faced with less-than-ideal living situations, financial struggles, and more extenuating circumstances than we can count. Here are some ways our professors have shown compassion and understanding in these stressful
Professor Robert G. O’Meally shares what makes Black boxer, Jack Johnson, the ultimate Harlem Renaissance man by employing various mediums and contextualizing his influence through the lens of various prominent Black figures.
This year has come with a lot of surprises and adjustments, one of which has been the switch to online learning. As we learn to adapt to this new format for classes, Bwoggers have picked
Liking the 2020s? With this year as the opening act? No thank you! Senior Staff Writer Victoria Borlando will happily stay in the 2000s where it’s safe, thank you very much.
Bwog is conducting a story on transgender and/or nonbinary student experiences during the Fall 2020 semester and we need your input!
This week, GSSC looked a little different, holding a town-hall-style meeting with students and senior Deans. Bwog gives you the question-by-question details.
Hidden in the credits of Project Runway, there is a disclaimer that in choosing who wins and who loses, judges consider their own scores in addition to input from the producers and network. In a similar vein, for the first time in a nickname contest, we’ve reserved our right to editorial discretion. Although MSEAS Hammer […]
A few days ago, we asked you to help us come up with a nickname for SEAS Dean Mary Cunningham Boyce. You answered our call, mostly with variations on beloved ’80s rappers. But now it’s time to determine which name will forever be attached to Dean Boyce and which lucky Bwog reader will get a […]
Yesterday, Mary Cunningham Boyce, neither Spec’s pick nor the interim dean (farewell Goldean!), was appointed dean of SEAS. As per tradition, we welcome her with some good old fashioned hazing community building. We’ve already seen some brainstorming in the comments, but it’s time to make it official: Dean Boyce needs a nickname. Leave your suggestions in […]
Update, 7/8: The nominations are in and here are the finalists. Vote for your favorite! It’s that time of year again, when a dean resigns, and the next in line needs a nickname. Today, that is Interim SEAS Dean Donald Goldfarb. We tried to come up with some ourselves: Old McDonald’s Farb The Farber of […]
A month ago, the Dean announced on Bwog that the winner of our nicknaming contest would win lunch with him, and a place at an unveiling ceremony bearing his new epithet. Yesterday, Columbia’s most powerful brand mogul, Ivan Duschatzky, SEAS ’13, joined Dean Valentini for Milano (chicken parm for Ivan, grilled chicken for the Dean). Bwog […]
It’s official: Columbia College has a new Dean, James Valentini. What possibilities! We’ve got PrezBo, KevSho/Ke$ho, and DSpar, and now it’s time to name our dear new Dean. Leave your suggestions in the comments. The winner gets a Milano sandwich, a hug and eternal glory. Let the hazing begin…
Huzzah! The votes are in and the winner of Bwog’s “Name the Northwest Corner Building Before Some Other Rich Guy Pays To” poll is… NoCo! Thanks to you, the Northwest Corner Building now has a name befitting its slick architectural style and the shmancy Joe’s Coffee inside.
The Northwest Corner Building needs a new name. Seriously (“this location of Joe will also soon offer beer and wine”), we can’t just wait around for somebody to donate enough money to change it – we need to take action. So Bwog calls upon you, brave readers, to generate a witticism of the highest order […]
Columbia already has too many damn acronyms, nicknames, and portmanteaus, but people just love coming up with more. This time, we’ve compiled a little list of classes out there that have been commonly referred to not by their actual course names, but by some other metonym. We like these, and it would do humanity a […]
