Field Notes: Keep It In Your Pants Edition

So there you are, at three in the morning on Saturday. You just had a great time getting covered in glitter in a Brownstone, and now you’re back in Furnald. But your roommate is asleep! You decide to be courteous and dry hump your compatriot in the public lounge. This is not courteous. Do not […]

Field Notes: Perseverance In The Face Of Sloth Edition

Field Notes: Squatters Edition

When the Columbia social scene gets tough, look to the escape tactics of these found first-years: retreat to glass-filled local establishments so that people know you’re out, but that you’re above whatever is happening in Mel’s. And make sure you bring snacks! But more about Mel’s below, and we want to hear more about your […]

We’ve arrived at the onset of Labor Day Weekend, which means that the flock of returning Columbia students is just starting its first wave. Official move-in begins on Saturday, but we know people are finagling their way back to campus earlier to do something productive…like bask in the upcoming weekend nights that precede days of […]

Field Notes: Public Safety Playtime Edition

Late on Saturday night, when even the most inebriated of us have retreated to their beds without brushing their teeth, the true animals of the night emerge to get their share of uncensured fun. Without students around to patrol them, Public Safety officers working the 4 am shift tip-toe out of their fort in Low, […]

Field Notes: Mets Vs. Yankees Edition

Bwog rarely cares about sports (especially when it involves non-Columbia teams), but sportswear clad New York baseball fans infiltrated the MTA this weekend for the Mets-Yankees series. They were loud, pregaming in public places, vulgar, rambunctious…basically all things we are/inspire to be when Bacchanal Saturday rolls around. Since we didn’t quite get there this Bacchanal, […]

Field Notes: It Was Near 80 Degrees On Saturday Edition

And therefore we’ve lost motivation to stay inside and focus on anything important. We used the rain today to retreat quickly back to bed and reminisce on a Saturday not too far gone where shorts and sitting on grass coincided. Pray with us for similar weather next weekend at tips@bwog.com. A high of 77 degrees […]

Field Notes: Baby Blue Moon Edition

Bwog really finds fulfillment in resonating with abandoned bottles of alcohol on Low. We’ll take suggestions for our psycho-analyzation and what weekend plans you’ve got lined up at tips@bwog.com.  Bwog’s recommendation on tap  “There was a guy shitting in the men’s room at 1020 at about 1 am on Thursday. Patrons will know that there is […]

Field Notes: Pucker Up Edition

It’s getting (somewhat) warmer outside, so everyone’s starting to feel lil’ steamy on the inside. Or, we all can just feel really inspired by the timely finding of an interestingly marketed lip balm product. Pucker up, cause Bacchanal is on the (rainy and cold) horizon, and everyone’s gonna be looking for warmth. Cheers to the […]

Field Notes: Spring Break Edition

The high rollin’ times of Spring Break 2015 have come and gone, and we successfully abused all comps available to us to ensure we don’t remember a good portion of it. You could say we have an addiction, but we took tips from our friends at MIT and got enough bank from counting cards to […]

Field Notes: Spring Midterms Edition

A week from today, regardless of where your spring break plans are taking you, you’ll have abandoned the books (just as a fellow NYC resident did on a non-shoveled sidewalk in Alphabet City this weekend) and be done with your midterms (hopefully). But we still needed to pretend this weekend that we aren’t in the […]

Field Notes: Media Edition

It’s March, and there’s still snow on the ground and treacherous sludge to dodge while you walk to your 8:40. All we want is spring, and the sun these days doesn’t melt any of our wintry sorrows away. In response, we’ve taken to devoting our free time to screens in addition to the usual shenanigans. […]
