The Fall 2020 semester saw students faced with less-than-ideal living situations, financial struggles, and more extenuating circumstances than we can count. Here are some ways our professors have shown compassion and understanding in these stressful
Professor Robert G. O’Meally shares what makes Black boxer, Jack Johnson, the ultimate Harlem Renaissance man by employing various mediums and contextualizing his influence through the lens of various prominent Black figures.
This year has come with a lot of surprises and adjustments, one of which has been the switch to online learning. As we learn to adapt to this new format for classes, Bwoggers have picked
Liking the 2020s? With this year as the opening act? No thank you! Senior Staff Writer Victoria Borlando will happily stay in the 2000s where it’s safe, thank you very much.
Bwog is conducting a story on transgender and/or nonbinary student experiences during the Fall 2020 semester and we need your input!
This week, GSSC looked a little different, holding a town-hall-style meeting with students and senior Deans. Bwog gives you the question-by-question details.
If history was written by the victors, then there are plenty of botched psychology experiments that go untold. Psychology is, after all, a soft science, which might explain its tendency to attract English and Comparative Literature dropouts.

As long as schools like Columbia champion the “sink-or-swim” school of language instruction, you will inevitably come into contact with, whether in fulfilling your requirement or just being intellectually curious, the Language Professor Who Does Not Speak English.

The Superstar is often late for class on account of just having flown in from Singapore/Zurich/LA. Nevertheless, s/he breezes in casually. S/he chills with presidents after all, it’s no big deal.

The end of classes always both feels much too soon and way overdue—in a “shit, I haven’t done anything for this class since the midterm” kind of way. This week, we’ll celebrate the people who teach us things by reducing them to […]
