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.
This past weekend (post-Bacchanal) was Columbia’s first Days On Campus session. Hundreds of prospective students (aka “prospies”) flooded campus, wandering around like lost puppies in search of alcohol. Over the course of their 24 hour stay, we were asked quite some interesting questions. Here are a few of the most popular, as well as their […]
Even though school has been in session for a couple of days, there are some things that we still aren’t certain of—which meal plan we would actually benefit from, which clubs we will actually be active in, and even which classes we’re actually going to take. Most of our schedules are loaded with classes, some […]
Hey, prospective students! We’ve given you a hard time these past couple of weeks (with all the crazy shit in your Facebook group, it wasn’t too hard), but to redeem ourselves in your eyes, we’re giving you an inside look of your digs for next year. Don’t worry, you’ll live through this next year. Probably. […]
Now that Bacchanal is over we feel it is our duty to tell you all the other things that have happened. The following is a collection random snippets, photos and tips that we’ve received over the past few days.Oh, and then there are those prospies and their shenanigans. Prospies make people not so prosperous: “Two […]
As you all know, the day prospies leave campus after DoC is the happiest saddest day of the year. So in an attempt to wish them a proper goodbye and hopefully bring them back in September, we braved the seven seas of Butler and asked the locals for some advice to prospies. Here’s what we […]
This weekend’s Days On Campus (damn you SEAS for getting the real weekend nights) coincides perfectly with 4/20, some actually slightly spring weather (maybe…) and generally the last weekend before finals start to kick in. What does that mean? That you should be showing your prospie an excellent time, *not* making them sleep on your […]
Bwog remembers all too well how Columbia whored itself to us when we were prospective students. This fine institution would like to think it was the Core, diversity, or financial aid, but it’s fairly obvious what our decision really came down to. A tipster overheard this prospie speaking to her mother as she exited the […]
Greetings, prospective Columbians! Bwog hopes that you’re ready to enjoy an amuse-bouche of college life this weekend. And by a stroke of good fortune, you’ll be experiencing completely typical weather conditions, quality of life, and level of general satisfaction! Right, everyone? Right. On Thursday, we reposted our beloved and authoritative guide, “How to Scar Your […]
A tipster overheard the following at the Amsterdam gates: Days on Campus Host student: “The kid’s gotta know what college is really like! Which is me, drunk, all weekend!” Which reminds us, Days on Campus begins this weekend, raising many questions. What will you do with them? What will they do with you? And most importantly, […]
According to several tipsters, hordes of prospective Columbians—whom our super scientific guestimations put somewhere between 4 and 6 years old—have been spotted amassing on and around Low steps, and in front of Butler. They’re tiny. They’re adorable. Pink puffer jackets abound. One such youngster was overheard making an astute observation outside Butler: “Every kind of […]
In case you were, like Bwog, stunned by the sheer number of tour groups making rounds today, there is an explanation. Today at 11 am, the URC saw the largest tour group in its history. Just more opportunities to scar those prospies, mirite?
They came, they saw, they clung to their nametags. We’re sure we conquered their hearts and minds with our extremely desirable and hip aloofness, sporadically pleasant weather and immaculate study habits… But really though? More likely you did one of the following things, because you were amused by their fresh-faced naïveté, and took a sick […]
Bwog (also incorrectly called “The Bwog“) is an independent news blog run by students of Columbia University. Since 2006, they’ve been providing students with breaking campus news and a platform for intelligent discourse among their readers. And tonight at 7 pm in the SGO, you can be a part of it all! Come meet with […]
Prospies currently attempting to get a perspective into life at Columbia may be flustered as their peers rattle the names of their other college acceptances. But remember—it’s all about perspective. The salutatorian of Bronx Science got into six Ivies and is “just trying to refrain from any hubris,” but an acceptance to Columbia is still an […]
Pay heed, potentials. If there is anything we can abstract from this morning’s news, it’s lessons in survival. Don’t slack. While people supposedly seem to like Charlie Sheen because “he barks out the truth as he sees it,” it took the crowd at his latest “aimless and slovenly” show only 20 minutes to start heckling […]
