laLate yesterday afternoon, Bwogger and sophomore at Barnard College Elle Ferguson died unexpectedly after introducing herself to the wrong professor.
On Saturday, September 14, Mia Xing, new Bwogger and experimental-film-virgin, attended the first screening of Spell Reel at the Lenfest Center with the brilliant Riva Weinstein herself and fellow new and much cooler Guest Writer Emma
Good morning, afternoon, Morningside! As NSOP comes to a close and you new students spend your first full weekend on campus, hopefully you’ve gotten a good idea of what 116th has to offer.
Gooooood morning! Welcome to your first tip-top Tuesday as a Barnumbia student. Speaking of tips, be sure to direct any anecdotes, overseens/overheards, and weird shit your OL said to your group to firstname.lastname@example.org via email or this handy form.
Do you hear that? No, listen closer. No, even closer. It’s quiet. But it’s coming. It’s getting louder and louder. It’ll be here sooner than you think. It’s…the beautiful, violent sounds of hundreds of blue bins rolling across campus, carting the fresh IKEA bean bags and Urban Outfitters tapestries of hundreds of new students as […]
Hey, new first years! Yeah, you! In just a few weeks, you’re going to embark on one of the greatest, sweatiest, and cringiest experiences of your whole college career: NSOP. In order to make this experience the Best Ever, a few of us old timers here at Bwog have compiled an NSOP bucketlist (based on our […]
We’ve finished the first week of school! You’ve found the time to exchange Instagrams with the funny kid in your Spanish section, you joined Bwog at Club Fair with someone on your floor, and you even blacked out together at Carman/Beta/1020. But Alex from NSOP keeps hitting you up for Ferris? And you keep getting this weird, slightly […]
Is it still a good morning if you’re up past McDonald’s breakfast hours? Yeah they serve all day now, but the rigid 10:30 standard they set is timeless (it’s 11am and you’re just now waking up? We’ve been eating fries for 30 min. Where have you been?). Keeping up with NSOP can be exhausting, whether you were partying […]
If you haven’t yet had a totally normal, non-awkward social interaction with anything on this campus, this byline can be your first one: what’s up! Welcome to Columbia, 2021! As move-in continues and you begin to settle in, you may realize that making friends can be an annoying process. Asking people their name & origin will […]
This past weekend (post-Bacchanal) was Columbia’s first Days On Campus session. Hundreds of prospective students (aka “prospies”) flooded campus, wandering around like lost puppies in search of alcohol. Over the course of their 24 hour stay, we were asked quite some interesting questions. Here are a few of the most popular, as well as their […]
Today is the final day of NSOP proper. Congratulations first-years on making it through your first week of Columbia! The coming weeks will be a lot more filled up with work and activities, but for what it’s worth, they’ll probably have a bit less drama. There are still some activities planned, but feel free to […]
NSOP is the perfect time to get settled in your new neighborhood, which includes finding your favorite dealer. Deciding who to pick up from can be easy: Birth control? Duane Reade. Grapes? Westside Market. But for other drugs, like caffeine, the choice can be much more complex. During your time at Columbia, you will develop […]
Today is the fifth-going-on-fiftieth day of NSOP, and while your mandatory events and forced friendships seem to be killing you softly, don’t give up hope! Use this time to familiarize yourself with your campus, your peers, and your uni (seriously, memorize that ASAP). Other don’ts for the fifth day of NSOP: hook up with a floor-mate, visit home, use all […]
NSOP isn’t complete with a handful of pregames being thrown on your floor, and we know that even the worst vodka can be made better with a good playlist. To help you make your pregame the “most lit” in Carman, we bring you two hours of hype music to get you excited to go out after […]
NSOP is just two weeks from now! If you haven’t heard, this year’s theme is NSOP Out Loud. If the NSOP Committee’s promo video is any indication, first-years will be expected to take a bunch of Snapchat videos, hopefully making friends along the way. Undergraduate Student Life released the schedules for all undergraduate NSOP’s this […]
