Administrators and public health experts projected confidence and optimism for Columbia’s return to campus this fall in the most recent University Life Forum.
We are almost halfway through the summer and some of you might be saying AHHHH. We here at Bwog have been keeping ourselves busy (or not). Here’s to hoping the semester does not start up
Several teams, including Columbia Football, have posted their game schedules for the 2021 season, confirming that the Lions are ready to jump back into intercollegiate competition after being on hold due to the pandemic.
You know it, I know it, we all know it – professors say the darndest things during shopping week. Well, they often say weird shit all year, but it’d be kinda cumbersome if we posted a “shit my professors say” every week. Without further ado, here’s what shopping students had to hear during their first […]
In the beginning, there was class. Out of the chaos, professors materialized and said ridiculous things in order to keep your attention. Like the Greek myths of old, a professor’s opening lecture is meant to enthrall you and make you believe in something larger than yourself. However, unlike those Greek myths, these opening remarks were […]
We’re officially one week into the semester now – we’ve had all of our first classes, and all of our professors have had their shots at first impressions. These opening remarks range from the curious, to the sad, to the distressingly relatable. Rashid Khalidi, History of the Modern Middle East: “I know sleep is more […]
You enter the lecture hall (ten minutes before class starts – the earliest you’ll be all semester), take a seat in the middle a calculated distance from the door, throw a jacket over the chair next to you to provide a sufficient buffer between you and the next person. The professor swoops in and spends […]
Even though the harsh snows are yet to pass, can you feel it in your bones? A warm breeze; your limbs, unfurling from a cold hibernation; the reds and pinks of blooming acer palmatum, magnolia x soulangeana, and those berries you see in the bushes and then wonder if they’re edible or not. Every beginning […]
The cold, rainy, and gloomy weather might be a sign to just give up now, but let’s face our 8 ams with optimism: it’s syllabus week! We all wish that MLK’s birthday could defy logic and last for a week, but sadly the semester crept up on us and now it’s time to log off Netflix […]
It’s that time of year again: syllabi are dropping from the sky like rain, your friends are shopping more classes in a week than you’d want to take in four years, and professors are attempting to convince you that they’re actually capable of teaching. And whether they do that by cramming two hours’ worth of […]
Shopping period has begun and if you think it’s driving you crazy, you haven’t been paying attention to the professors–here are some of the weirdest, wisest, most wonderful words to come out of our profs’ mouths as we pore over their syllabi in fear and excitement. Thanks for sending in quotes and helping to continue […]
It’s true, classes have barely started – but, as the indefinable They governing our colloquial expressions say, only three things in life are inevitable: death, taxes, and weird professors. In this first week, the realm of syllabi and awkward silences, many of your professors probably haven’t planned out lectures beyond reading over a typo-ridden document […]
The first week of classes is over, and the opening remarks by your professors are in. We hope your profs stay in such good spirits (especially when they’re grading your papers.) If you hear/see your profs doing any other ridiculous things this semester, tell us about it by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org! Anna Caterina Musatti, […]
“Four score and seven years ago…” – (Former) President Abraham Lincoln, 1863 “Imma let you finish…” – (Future) President Kanye West, 2009 These are just some of the great opening lines of our great history. Who knows what might be penned among them during this remarkable time: the beginning of 2015 fall classes at Columbia. […]
