John Henry Coatsworth, the Provost of Columbia University, will resign from his position on June 30, 2019, according to an email sent out by University President Lee Bollinger early this morning.
Ahh, yes, the elusive single. Need your private time? Scarred by getting sexiled in Carman? Internal editor and proud resident of a McBain single Zoe Sottile tells you how it’s done.
We have this incredibly swag photo of Celebrity Econ Professor Sunil Gulati. We know you all have some crazy feelings about this guy (and a powerful need to procrastinate), so we propose a Photoshop contest. Put Gulati in a new outfit, a new situation or a new context. Submissions will be judged mainly on cleverness and […]
Earlier this week a tipster overheard two Facilities workers checking out each other’s IDs: First guy: “What is that!? It’s all forehead. Where’s your face?” Embarrassed guy: “Shut up! Give that back!” We realized we all know that feeling. You must too. That’s why Bwog wants you to submit your most cringe-worthy, shame-inducing, esteem-undermining, reality-bending […]
A few days ago, when campus welcomed the returned of local hero Hawkmadinejad, Bwog couldn’t help but notice how handsome your Hawk looked! Bwog Culinary and Sciences Bureau Chief Jon Hill agreed, but asked, somewhat rhetorically, “More handsome than even in his 1977 prom photo?” Hill had gone back into the Hawkmadinejad family archives and […]
Last week, first-years received an email from AlcoholEdu announcing a contest. Alcohol Edu, always on top of the latest zeitgeist-y cultural references asked: “Is college really like Old School or Animal House?” Responses could take any form of expression (hear that, you creative types?) from essays to drawings to videos. Bwog found this quite coincidental, […]
Over the last week we asked you, our readership, to submit your entries to our first Photoshop competition featuring your favorite/least favorite professors in remodeled garb. Anyway, we hated to have to choose a winner, so instead we decided to play the proud parent and post all the lovely artwork we received on what we’d […]
Bwog ventured into photo contests last year, held a Lolcompetition last month, and has since learned that some of you have quite a remarkable facility with Photoshop. Now, time to show off your skills: our first Photoshop competition. This time, pick your favorite professor (or your least favorite) and give him or her a makeover, […]
Bwog received an encouraging number of colorful entries for our Columbia Spring Fashion Extravaganza contest. This week’s winner was Max Talbot-Minkin C ’07, whose successful submission is displayed below. We hope you eager photobwoggers will keep them coming for our next theme, just in time for finals: LIBRARY CARREL DECOR. Finally, your chance to expose […]
Well, we didn’t get quite as many answers for the tougher theme of “how-to,” but the ones we got are worth posting anyway. Consistent contributor Suselina Acosta, C ’07, pulled it out with the photo below, entitled “how to pour a 4-in-1 bottle of wine (two hands).” Our theme for this week: COLUMBIA SPRING FASHION […]
Our second weekly photo contest, on the theme of consumption, also attracted manifold worthy entrants, forcing some difficult choices. However, by the highly objective standards of the Bwog editorial staff, Janna Herman, B’10, came out on top again! Her winning photo, below, is entitled “Couples Dine Out.” See the rest of our picks after the […]
In our inaugural photo contest, Bwog got many good submissions (this editor’s Gmail quota is now three percent more depleted), which the great hive-mind of Bwog editors narrowed down to five nocturnal masterworks. First “prize” for best submission goes to Janna Herman, B’10, for “CBGB Closing Night.” Be sure to get your original photos in […]
