As the last weekend of fall semester comes to a close, Columbia still manages to have some meaningful events: like Orgo Night, Primal Scream, and lots and lots of exams. :( Bwog Tries To Study Had a MIDTERM Finally sent out my resume/cover letter I swear I actually managed to study for finals Did not […]
Freshman Bwog staffer Jordan Merrill has no idea what to expect from the band’s semesterly Orgo Night, and she is not disappointed. After forcing my friends to come to Butler with me a full 30 minutes before midnight so that we could “get the best view,” I feel prepared for whatever chaos is about to […]
Tonight is probably the night with the highest ratio of events that tour guides mention to the number of hours in which they occur – both Orgo Night and Midnight Breakfast are tonight! You’ve (hopefully) seen the posters for Orgo Night at this point, but in case you haven’t, it’ll be at 11:59 pm in […]
While some of us might’ve wished upon a hopeful star for just one more holiday break before reading week, the inevitable end of the fall semester has come. To relieve your finals dread, Columbia University Marching Band has released its first round of Orgo Night flyers! Some revolve around the university’s recent drastic reduction of the band […]
Sweet, sweet Orgo Night was a lot breezier than last semester due to the Band’s last-minute change of location: at 11:30 last night, as 209 grew rowdier and rowdier, it was announced that due to threats from the administration Orgo Night would be happening outside. But the show must go on, so Bwoggers Zoe Sottile […]

Despite the best efforts of this grand university to crush everything and anything joyful about this place, the CU Marching Band… marches on, so to speak, releasing its first wave of flyers for Orgo Night. The time, as always, is at the witching hour of Reading Week; the place is somewhat up in the air. Wherever […]
Since fall 2016, the marching band has been banned from holding Orgo Night, their biannual roast of all things Columbia, in its traditional location of Butler 209. Despite much back-and-forth with the administration, particularly Vice Provost and University Librarian Ann Thornton, who made the final decision to ban them, the CUMB held Orgo Night outside the next […]
Ah, Orgo Night. As revealed by CUMB at 11:30 pm, this year’s Orgo Night was back in Butler 209, despite administration previously barring them from performing in the library. If you missed the memo, don’t fret: as per Bwog tradition, we sent Bwog froshies Jenny Zhu and Zack Abrams to review this year’s Orgo Night. […]
Earlier today, Bwog received this message from the Columbia University Marching Band, with strict instructions not to release the information contained within until 11:30 pm. In the future, if you wish to address us, please address us with ‘Greetings, Your Undying Majesty’ instead of ‘Hi.’ Hi Bwog, Tonight, Orgo Night will be held in Butler […]
