Olivia Rodrigo’s Drivers License has topped charts since it was released on January 8, and there is nothing like blasting the song while driving through the suburbs and scream-singing to your heart’s content. Here are
Welcome back to another semester of Zoom CCSC, tune in for inspirational work ethic and exciting political drama through first-hand reporting on your elected officials’ weekly meetings!
This weekend, America is turning 232, making it just slightly older than the Columbia College website. Traditionally, Americans celebrate their country’s birthday by cooking meat on grills outdoors and then watching fireworks. For this week’s Guide to the Weekend, we’ve consolidated a few events that will give you the opportunity to do just that. Macy’s […]
While most of you are probably relieved to have exited Columbia’s campus, free of Butler and Lerner for an entire summer, there’s an entire generation of earnest young people who just can’t wait for August. They were born in 1990, their SATs were probably out of 48,000, and we’re calling them the Terrible 12s. Every […]
Despite previous statements to the contrary, the Academic Affairs Committee has invited the entirety of Columbia College to tonight’s Academic Awards Ceremony. The ceremony will honor Lionel Trilling and Mark van Doren Award winners, Joseph Massad and Andrew Nathan, respectively. The reception starts tonight in Low at 6 PM with the ceremony to follow. We’re […]
You’ll have to excuse us for our lazy morning, yesterday was Bwog’s 2nd Birthday Party at La Negrita and we’re still a bit tired. Bwoggers, BWers and alums aplenty migrated to 109th and Columbus (despite the slush and ice) to celebrate with drinks, Top 40 hits, and the memories of QuickSpecs and Major Columbia Controversies […]
Bwog entered the terrible twos last week, and is looking forward to teething, walking, colic, and replying to every statement with a simple “Why?” As such, you are pleasantly reminded that the second anniversary of our birth will be celebrated tonight at La Negrita (Columbus & 109th Street), at 10 PM. Bwog will be personally […]
The first in a sporadic series of nightlife reports from our seasoned partygoer and would-be Carraway. “I wasn’t even going to go out tonight. I need to get a snack.” So said co-best-dressed female Lauren Fabiano, on Saturday night’s “Gatsby” sophomore class semi-formal. Emphasis on semi; tonight’s guests seemed more James Gatz than Jay Gatsby, […]
Bwog freelancer Kate Linthicum followed the Potluck House kids north last night. What do you get when 40 rambunctious college students descend on a notorious Bronx park for a moonlit drum circle? The NYPD, apparently. The costumed revelers at last night’s “Hotluck” Halloween party learned that the hard way when police swooped down on their […]
Spec is only running Monday and Wednesday on this sunny, gloriously action-packed midterm week. So in the absence of our usual morning recap, we present this motley roundup of completely unrelated miscellany… Behold the latest email from the CC ’09 class council, proving to seniors, perhaps, that they don’t have it so bad. The missive begins […]
Last night, a bunch of Bwog’s closest friends met up at Havana “West End” Central to make merry and make fools out of themselves in this old blog’s honor. While the antics remained slightly more subdued than we would have wanted, drunken mingling hit an all-time high. This was some hardcore mingling, man. And of course, we […]
On Februrary 17th, 2006, we had a giant party at Mona to celebrate the launch of BW‘s quirky younger brother, the Bwog. You, at least, are still reading our little foray into new media, so you might as well help us celebrate our survival one year later. We were going to have it at Mona […]
Last night the University officially marked the beginning of all-around mensch Václav Havel’s residence at Columbia with a swanky party at the Stone Rose Lounge in Columbus Circle. Among the trustees, donors, and administrators circulated two Bwog correspondents, who had cadged passes at a CU Arts pizza party. In a decidedly unsober phone call, they […]
Bollinger sighting! An anonymous tipster reports: “Last night a few friends and I were walking on 116th near the Wein courtyard carrying seven handles of bad vodka and four cases of beer for a party in EC when we passed President Bollinger. The plastic bags did little to hide the illicit content. As he walked […]
It’s your first day at Columbia. Mom and Dad just drove back to New Jersey, and you are ready to celebrate your newfound freedom. But wait. Shit! You’ve heard that Columbia is an awful party school. They say the only fun thing to do here is cocaine, but you don’t want to put anything in […]
A few issues of Spectator remain to be released, but Speccies celebrated the end of their year Tuesday night in considerable style. For the annual Spec Dinner, our campus broadsheet (whose facebook group, incidentally, has 175 more members than The Blue and White’s) rented out the private rooms of 420, a swanky bar on 80th […]
