Senior Staffer Levi Cohen takes stock of his cottons, wools, and linens.
As a wee freshman, Nadra Rahman may have signed the Henry Moore petition? She reports on part 2 (and more), straight from the Satow Room.
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
Sports Editor? Staff Writer? Jana Jaran attends a Columbia University Public Outreach lecture lead by astronomy researcher John Brewer about methods of finding planets in space and what the discovery of Earth-like planets mean for our future.
We at Bwog decided to show our diplomatic side for the day by inviting the former Editor in Chief of Spectator, Catie Edmondson, to come give us wisdom! We’re all ears, Catie!

The Columbia Daily Spectator, Columbia and Barnard’s lovable weekly “daily newspaper” and perpetual op-ed machine, is to shortly move out from their old building at 2875 Broadway, which was located between 111th and 112th—conveniently adjacent to the Heights.

In this installment of “In Defense Of,” Julia Goodman protests the protest of protests. We promise this article will be way easier to read (and way more enjoyable) than that just was. Yesterday, a disturbing editorial ran in the Spectator entitled “Make protesting pragmatic.” It opens with the observation that “campus protests have become less […]
Update 2: Jade is no longer a Speccie. Spec just updated their editors’ note to add that “we have absolutely no tolerance for plagiarism, and Jade’s relationship with Spectator has been terminated.” Update: Bonacolta’s position, according to Spec’s printed masthead, is currently Arts & Entertainment Associate, which is apparently the 3rd (and lowest) tier of editors […]
Eli Sanders, CC ’99, just won a Pulitzer for his harrowing feature, “The Bravest Woman in Seattle,” in the Seattle weekly, The Stranger. Bwog called him to figure out how journalism works. Bwog: So what was your major? Eli: Middle East and Asian Languages and Cultures, I don’t know if they have that anymore. MEALAC? Bwog: […]
A few issues of Spectator remain to be released, but Speccies celebrated the end of their year Tuesday night in considerable style. For the annual Spec Dinner, our campus broadsheet (whose facebook group, incidentally, has 175 more members than The Blue and White’s) rented out the private rooms of 420, a swanky bar on 80th […]
