Columbia Confessions has only been around for a little while, but it’s already generated some weird posts—including one in which a stoner-turned-anti-marijuana-crusader exposes us as alleges us to be a propaganda network.
Bwogger and SoCal resident Nicki Camberg has some questions, namely: what are duck boots? What is she supposed to do when it snows? Is sledding an actual thing? These aren’t rhetorical please help her.
Have you ever wondered whether or not certain less genotypical traits such as mental illness, anxiety, or PTSD can have intergenerational effects? Deputy Editor Vivian Zhou is a Neuro major, so it was only appropriate that

Behold: registration is nigh! As Bwog combed the bulletin, an itch in the back of our SSOL audit report reminded us that there are not one but two physical education requirements. But with all these activities to choose from, how do we progress from here? Bwog has begun our very own PE Madness Tournament to […]
Didn’t we say we had a fucking amazing cross country team? Yesterday at the Ivy League Cross Country Heptagonal Championships, the Columbia men’s team achieved 48 points (remember: lower points is better) for the win–beating out defending champ Princeton and tying Columbia’s historical best from 1979 at the Heps. Nicolas Composto, CC’14, took second place […]
This past weekend, the Columbia football team lost 56-0 to Dartmouth. Per the real sports reporters at Spec, this is “the third time this season the Lions have surrendered 50-plus points.” To be fair, it’s not as bad as last year’s 69-0 loss to Hahvahd. Actually that doesn’t make us feel much better. We’ve heard that at […]
Spotlight on Soccer The Lady Lions have been kicking the ball as of late. They’ve also been blocking the ball well (insert sexual reference here). Columbia’s women’s soccer team won their third shutout performance in four games, beating LIU Brooklyn on Sunday. The “W” is also Columbia’s second consecutive home win at home. Senior Beverley […]
Columbia football’s first home game of the season was this past Saturday. Bwog’s resident sports experts Akul Arora and Jeremy Sherman were there. Heading into opening day at Robert K. Craft Field at Lawrence A. Wien Stadium at Baker Athletics Complex, there was a general consensus among fans: even though Columbia is an elite academic […]
After hating some charming soccer players for crushing the housing game last semester, Bwog editor Alexandra Svokos decided to see them in action at their home opener against Iona College on Saturday. I had this grand image in my head: a group of friends at Baker in painted faces and Columbia gear, cheering wildly in […]
Bwog is checking out for summer (unless something marvelously big happens that we simply must tell you about) as it is officially June, but first we’d like to give you a round-up of what’s been going on in the CU world these last two weeks. It has definitely been a memorable semester and we hope you […]
…And now for something sports-related at Columbia that’s just straight-up awesome: Josh Martin, who was signed by the Kansas City Chiefs, sits down with Kansas rep Zachary Hendrickson to talk about being a free agent, a band nerd, and successful in general. Bwog: First of all, congratulations! What did it feel like, being signed by […]
Hey there, sports fans! Come on out to Baker Field tonight to watch SigEp the Columbia Men’s Rugby Team square-off against their rivals from the City of Scrap Metal-y Love, the Yale Bulldogs. Not only will spectators of the scrum be treated to what is sure to be an exciting match, but also the first […]
Then you should write for Bwog! Unfortunately our dearly beloved sports editor is graduating this year and would like to chill mad hard appreciate his final semester while working with an apprentice to take over. To that end, we are currently on the lookout for any and all sports fans (and players) to join our […]
If you’ve turned on the news in the past three weeks, you’ve probably heard of Manti Te’o, the Samoan Mormon Notre Dame linebacker (like that’s not news enough) whose tragic losses in his personal life propelled him to lead the Fighting Irish to the National Championship game. You’ve also probably heard that Lennay Kekua, Te’o’s girlfriend who was […]

Bwog isn’t really clear on exactly what Basketball Mania is, but we hear there will be free things in a heated building so we’re interested. Head to Dodge tonight to pick up a free long sleeve T-shirt, see performances by groups like the hip hop dance crew, Raw Elementz, and most likely partake in some […]
What are you doing for winter break? How about an 8-day trip to Miami Beach; staying at a 4-star hotel? Bwog received a picture earlier tonight from an anonymous tipster, who found a hotel invoice lying on a desk nearby Uris Pool. The invoice seems legit, but Bwog is reaching out to Athletics just to […]
