Reading week and exam week allow Columbia students to sample The Purge: what would happen if there were no laws, and we were truly without inhibition? Well, here are a few options.
This semester, Butler displayed the names of 8 Black, Indigenous and other women of color (BIWOC) writers to honor the 30th anniversary of the original protest of the all-male lineup that graces the facade. In
In some lectures, you need to pay close attention to every moment. In others, you need to struggle to keep from running out the door screaming. Many literature classes at this school are closer to that second one; as intelligent as our peers may be and as hard as our professors might work to keep […]
As finals loom and our oncoming grade deflation becomes a force for sure doom, we often take to studying in strange locations: the eighth floor of Butler, abandoned classrooms in Havermeyer, and even the Lerner ramps. One Bwog staffer particularly fond of those black chairs outside Ferris began studying regularly in Lerner during the later […]
In the need to spice up your nighttime (or daytime) escapades? One boozy Bwogger reviews the latest arrival at International. Disclaimer: This message was not sponsored by Maven and is simply the result of a very good night. This new import at International is worth the scrutiny of your fake ID.

Should you stay or should you go? Well, if that’s not a rhetorical question and you’re asking about Orgo Night, the answer is: go! Tonight at 11:59 pm precisely, all hell will break loose in Butler 209: CUMB is putting on its 69th “semi-annual” Orgo Night show/demonstration/what have you. Bwog will be there, of course, […]
1020 is turning 21! It’s a huge milestone: if 1020 were a Columbia student, he’d probably have a (slightly sad) rager in his EC townhouse, buy cigarettes legally, and film himself throwing his fake into the Hudson River. As it is, 1020 is just a bar—an inanimate object, really. Nevertheless, you and 1020 have likely made memories […]
What are you doing this Saturday, besides frantically looking up playlists to facilitate the writing of your term paper and/or oversleeping and missing your class’s trip to the Met?

Whether you are genuinely interested in urban issues or hoping to affect an air of interest, consider checking out “Homes and Homelessness,” a discussion to be held on Thursday, February 25 (today!) at 7:30 pm. It will take place in 501 Schermerhorn Hall. The biggest draw of the event is the main speaker, New York […]
Soon enough, stubborn and yellowing ice will give way to uncovered lawns, budding flowers, and the truest indicator of spring: Bacchanal. It might seem distant now, but maintain hope and eventually campus will be congested, disorganized, and presumably, awash in the sounds of good (???) music. If you’re a musician and interested in participating in this great […]
Give the Action Line at Ferris a break and feed both your body and soul (too cheesy?) with some live music today. Live At Lerner presents Lauv, a pop/R&B/indie artist who will perform songs from his new album “Lost in the Light.” It’ll be today (!), in the Piano Lounge of Lerner from 1 to 2 […]
Take a break from studying (or not studying) an mosey on down to Broadway Presbyterian Church for some pancakes and midnight solidarity! From 11 pm to 1 am tonight, our friends at everyone’s favorite progressive church in MoHi will be servin’ up fuel for your late-night/early morning trips to Riverside Park (we all know what you’re […]
Update, 11:39 am: Changes have been made in the organization of the protest. It is now being run by the Barnard Columbia Solidarity Network (BCSN), a coalition that includes the groups that were part of the Student Power Coalition, but adds to the mix Mobilized African Diaspora and Barnard Columbia Socialists. They will release their […]
Feeling particularly generous, what with the Christmas spirit in the air (yeah, right)? Barnard and its illustrious SGA are collaborating on an initiative to collect donations of dining points and redistribute them to students in need beginning December 10! This form, open now through December 7, allows Barnard students to donate as many points as […]
We all know the real reason that Lerner has increased the price of key replacements to a whopping $50, but here’s the official statement from Jose Rosa, Director of Operations of the Transportation Office: Prior to this increase, the key replacement fee had not changed for more than 10 years, during which time the actual cost to […]
Performers, designers, type-A personalities, lend me your ears—because you just might be interested in the ongoing auditions for the Varsity Show.
