With the end of, hopefully, our last online semester comes another edition of Bwog Staff’s favorite running series. Read up on the music that defined our semester while getting vaccinated and practicing social distancing!
This past year has been nothing short of a disaster for many people, but working, learning, and socializing through our computer screens has produced a few silver linings that we’d want to stick around.
A noose was found at the Union Theological Seminary on Wednesday afternoon in an incident currently being investigated by the NYPD as a hate crime.
Bwog can somehow explain the past 22 days of housing, but the mystery behind the resurrecting 6-person Plimpton suite will remain unsolved.
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 […]
Bwogline: HQ Trivia and Vine co-founder Colin Kroll, 34, was found dead in his apartment in New York City.

This is a reminder to all y’all out there with something to get off your chest: Primal Scream is happening tonight at midnight! For all those who are unaware of the tradition: Each semester on the Sunday night of finals week, Columbia students open their windows at midnight and scream as loudly as they possibly can. This tradition, […]
Tonight, when the clock strikes midnight, the students of Columbia will partake in their ceremonial transformation from stressed out college students into primal animals. Some may say that they hate this tradition, but there’s no doubt that the best way to relieve some stress is yelling at the top of your lungs. Just think about […]
We are well into the Monday of finals and at 12 am campus got shaken up – no, it wasn’t Beta or its pre-pubescent taste in music (though these days it was definitely our first thought), but rather all of our fellow classmates screaming across campus. Our angst and our stress were so well articulated last […]
That’s right. It’s already the Sunday before finals begin, which means Primal Scream is happening tonight. Maybe it’s your first year at Columbia. Or maybe you’ve always spent today tucked away in your cozy single with your noise-canceling headphones on. Either way, Mamma Bwog is here to prepare you for Primal Scream: Make sure you know […]
Just in case you tried to get to sleep early last night, the screaming and caterwauling coming from everywhere in Morningside Heights that woke you up at 12 AM was the Primal Scream, the traditional Sunday before finals venting of stress. Bwog took some videos so everyone can relive the catharsis. Footage from outside Butler […]
“Bwog, what’s happening?” “Bwog, I think someone is getting murdered outside my window?” “Bwog, someone in Butler is SCREAMING!!!!” These are all tips we will probably get tonight. Why? Primal Scream is tonight at midnight. For about 5 minutes, things are going to get loud. And primal. Because tomorrow is Monday and we all have […]
Last night y’all screamed for Primal Scream, one of the few traditions we keep up here at this fine university, along with losing our minds during finals seasons, writing weirdly aggressive passive aggressive notes, and misplacing brownstones. This year, the Class of 2014 attempted a new tradition, with about 30 seniors gathering at Alma to […]
