Though I speak with the tongues of Bwog and of students, but have not pitches, I am become as sounding Spec, or a tinkling Jester.
Bwogger Jordan Merrill tells the people what they need to hear. As Columbia slash Barnard students, we can be certain about one thing: we are all fucking nerds. I never thought it would come to the

Bwogline: Ukraine has halted its cooperation with Robert Mueller’s investigation. The investigation in Ukraine focused on Paul Manafort’s financial fraud; Ukraine is dependent on the U.S. for military aid, aka big anti-tank missiles, and is scared of upsetting the Trump administration by cooperating. (New York Times) Study Tip: Self-care, y’all! Which doesn’t mean just doing a face […]

It’s that time of year again: finals are approaching, and high stress levels can be felt all across campus.

Bwog knows how busy everyone is, so […]
Bwogline: What are you doing while reading Bwog? Researchers found out that multitasking “produces shallower thinking, reduces creativity, increases errors and lowers our ability to block irrelevant information.” (BBC) Study Tip: Turn off your phone, leave the Columbia buy/sell memes Facebook group. You have just doubled your study time. Music: There is nothing more exciting […]
It’s Reading Week, you’re looking through your notes, and you realize much of what you scribbled down is illegible, strange, or undecipherable. Even more of it is just amusing. Below are some of your classmates’ notes, which are by turns sad, excited, mean, and strangely enough, helpful. Life Mottos “Mitochondria Are the Powerhouse of the […]
It’s Day 2 of Reading Week! We know you probably don’t believe in yourself but that’s okay, because we have enough faith in you to power Butler for an entire week. Get out of bed, go to that study group, write 6 pages of your paper, and smash that mf final! Alternatively, listen to mopey […]
We weren’t sure what this “reading week” stuff was all about, so we sent staff writer Phoebe to find out. Turns out, we’re actually expected to study this week! Well, that wasn’t going to happen, so instead Phoebe compiled a list of 10 alternatives to this “studying” nonsense to get you through the next seven or […]
Yesterday an email was sent out to students from CCSC 2017 President, Ravi Sinha. During reading week, Hamilton Hall will stay open even later on weeknights – midnight, to be exact.

For Reading Week, Bwog is sharing a walk a day leaving from Columbia’s campus.

Britt Fossum can’t sit still when there are things to stress about during finals season. So instead of spending her downtime curled up around a hot computer, she actually goes out and does stuff. No Netflix? No problem. I worry about a lot of things during reading week. I worry about my health, my grades, […]
Classes are finally over this Monday–isn’t that swell? Well, we s’pose it would be if there weren’t no pesky finals and papers to finish off. But don’t worry, baby, your folks at Drinking with Bwog, New York’s hottest speakeasy, are here to make sure everything’s fine and ducky. Don’t let prohibition reading week stop you […]
And so it ends—not with a bang, but with a whimper—the last semester of the first decade of the new millennium. And if you needed more roundabout and somewhat forced catharsis than that, we asked for your professors’ closing remarks, and here is a collection of the most outstanding. Feel free to leave any we […]
