Columbia Journalism School announced yesterday the creation of The New York World, a publication that will “provide New […]
WHO!WHAT? WHEN? No, silly, it’s NOW!HERE, Columbia’s own undergraduate journal of world travel featuring articles, photos and art inspired by the international experiences of Columbia students. It’s now here (get it?). The choice reads: Ireland: “We’re like a petulant college student.” Hitchhiker fiction! Holland isn’t quite like you imagine it. The Jersey Shore isn’t, either. […]
Better late than never: one week before his inauguration, an article Barack Obama wrote for the now-defunct campus magazine The Sundial has finally surfaced in full on Politico. The article had first been excerpted in the class notes section of Columbia College’s alumni magazine’s November/December issue. Written in the spring of 1983, just months before […]
A big Bwog welcome to C-Spot, “a new erotic review produced by Columbia students,” which we delightedly noticed on stands yesterday. This campus has been bereft of an honest-to-god sex magazine since the short life of Outlet–which never even ended up in print, and is sadly no longer available online–as has Harvard, whose flash-in-the-pan H-Bomb […]
In which Bwog Lecture Hop Editor Pierce Stanley ventures into the cavernous confines of Low Library to corroborate the commotion sparked by last night’s launch of Columbia’s newest journal of Sustainable Development, Consilience.

The first issue of Eclectica Esoterica – the magazine that features your weirdest, wildest, and generally most interesting papers – is out. Bwog inaugurates the new publication with a customary quicking (since the magazine is in PDF format, all links point to the same source). MF Doom, meet linguistics (p. 4) Zen and the art of […]
FOB (Friend of Bwog) BW graphics editor, Tablet Editor-in-Chief, and all-around badass Jerone Hsu has a new project. Says he: “There is a brand new publication at Columbia as of this semester.

Our source sez: The New Yorker poetry department receives over 1,000 submissions every week. Each of these is destined to be lovingly rejected by an intern, usually a Columbia grad student, with a carefully handwritten note. It’s understandable then that sometimes things get backed up. Really backed up. According to one of the interns, there […]
The Midwest? Isn’t that somewhere around Lincoln Center? Saving the earth, one co-opted capitalist at a time. Larry David—not funny enough to be Jewish. SEEJies triumph, wish they could have barricaded Low. Naked partiers of the world unite! You have nothing to lose but the ability to pass each other normally on the sidewalk ever […]
You may have noticed the piles of glossy paper gracing newsstands in recent days. We in the publications world think alike, which means that Columbians have to stomach us all at once.
