The Best Of NSOP 2010

Today is a hard day. Time for those rosy-colored (or Colt 45-colored glasses, perhaps) to come off. Classes begin tomorrow, and now you can only get drunk two or three nights a week. Let’s remember NSOP 2010: A Whatever Odyssey together. We’ll see you in discussion section, fresh-people. We helped you configure your John Jay […]

Know Your Wikipedia

’14ers out there may have realized that Bwog can be a valuable source of information about Columbia. However, even seasoned Columbians may not know some of this carefully checked, entirely reliable trivial knowledge. Great for parents weekend, when you want to steer away from the topic of grades and significant others. Columbia has its own […]

Where Morningside Is Actually a College Town

Morningside Heights likes to pretend that it is a college town. In recent years, that has been an increasingly difficult image to maintain: there’s about a bank per block between 110th and 116th Streets, and many independently owned stores have closed in the last few years to make room for big chains like Chipotle and […]

Residence Hall Etymology

The Core, it has been said, is good for cocktail party chatter and not much else. You’ll be able to schmooze with people about Woolfe and iambic pentameter, yadda yadda. This post supplements the rather specific knowledge Columbia bestows on you (hey, no snark alert: we kind of love the Core) with some genuinely useless […]

Wake Up And Learn Things With Bwog, Round 6

Tomorrow, there will be no more advice. So relish it today. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to get out of the Foreign Language requirement! Deans don’t like to enlighten frosh on how it can be done, but The Blue and White cornered one administrator and he spilled the beans. Apparently, to […]

Penis!

Due to the change in the Navigating Health Services theme, Bwog was briefly under the alarming impression that consent was no longer sexy. To our great relief we confirmed today that consent is, in fact, sexy. Still. And… exhale! Proving that the Health Services team is an upbeat, if maybe not particularly creative bunch, today’s […]

Health Services Was Helpful Yesterday

Upperclassmen, you’ve seen this one before. Peter Sterne, CC’14, writes from the Health Services Skit. NSOP is a strange time when normally impersonal and bureaucratic instruments of the administration try to humorously (and cornily) appeal to incoming, naïve freshmen. Every department does things differently: the Division of Student Affairs gives us Dean Shollenberger, who has […]

2014: They Were On A Boat

Zoe Camp, BC ’14, was on a boat last night. This year’s New York City Event started off with a heavy dose of déjà vu. 2014ers strolling—or in the case of the many high-heel-clad girls, clopping—onto the flight deck of the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum were greeted by a clapping, whooping sea of […]
