Way back two weeks ago we told you that Improv Everywhere is hosting a public performance tomorrow in Ancel Plaza before the Activities Fair (come meet with The Blue & White staff!). This is absolutely worth checking out, so head on over to The Mp3 Experiment Columbia University homepage to find out more information about […]
It’s near the end of the semester, and the only thing that’s on your mind is laying on the lawns running from the rain. But don’t forget that there are things that need your input! Cough. Courseworks evaluations have been out for a while now, and many of them are due towards the end of […]
Don’t forget that tonight at 2:00 a.m. (what your parents call “Sunday morning”) Father Time will come and steal an hour from you. Your computers and phones should add an hour automagically but that Mickey Mouse alarm clock you still have at home won’t.
It’s become a ritual for exam time: our Carsplit PSA. If you’re headed to JFK, LaGuardia, or Newark by taxi in the coming days, use Carsplit to find new friends who are doing the same, thus saving everyone money. Once again: split a cab, save money. Carry on.
Image via SFist.com If you didn’t laugh your finals terror away earlier yesterday or today, there’s another remedy for stress around the corner (as in, tomorrow night). It’s a pillow fight! Choose your side–North or South lawn–before the clock tolls midnight (and the Scream beings), then rail on your enemies until you have no […]
A crop of books are due back at Columbia’s libraries today, and if you don’t give them back or renew them, you pay a quarter a day. That’s a Snickers bar you lose every three days your books sit collecting dust in your room. Oh, and if you lost what you need to give back, […]

Dear readers, After more than two years with the same front page, we have decided that Bwog is in need of another makeover. The new version will be launching today, and we’ve kept pretty much all of the features that we had before, merely reorganizing them for an even more streamlined look. We have added […]
For those of you staying in East Campus or McBain over break, Columbia University Facilities will be using the time to fix your residence. In McBain, elevator repairs will mean that both elevators will be out on Monday, December 29th. In EC, the story’s slightly less chipper, and quite a bit longer. Facilites “has identified […]
The perennial Carsplit enthusiasts have resurfaced! And they’ve asked that we post a link to this thing in hopes of securing cheaper airport-bound cab rides for everyone. So sure, here’s Carsplit. We know it’s hard to see past your last final, but if you’re headed to JFK, LaGuardia, or Newark by taxi in the coming […]
Guard the link to your NROTC survey with your life, as that link that was emailed to you this morning is a personalized link. What this strangely inefficient system means is that if someone clicks your link, they can change your vote. Of course, this is only coming to light after numerous students group leaders […]
Just a quick note that Michael Mallick and the good people at the English Department have begun posting admit lists for Spring 2009 seminars. Complete list should be up by Tuesday.
