New Staff Writer Anna Eggers attended a book talk by Nicole Fleetwood about her new book Marking Time: Art in the Age of Mass Incarceration sponsored by the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture.
Already the subject of much controversy regarding its relationship with the Harlem community, Columbia’s Manhattanville campus is once again facing scrutiny, this time from New York City’s Carpenters Union for working with a non-union contractors
A completely understandable snafu in trying to manage the logistics of sending hundreds of students around the world some plastic tubes? Or a coverup?
While campus is closed for the semester, the Milstein Center and their Teaching and Learning Centers have been working to provide online support and resources for students on their semester away. Most are providing events,
You can probably tell Bwog is a big fan of The Weeknd given how frequently he ends up on our playlists. Well, imagine our surprise when we spotted the new King of Pop on campus this afternoon! It’s unclear whether Abel is out on College Walk doin’ promo for his new tour, or just looking […]
NSOP 2012 is in full swing, and the sweet ’16ers are everywhere—but there’s no need to get out of bed to gawk! We’ve captured all of the excitement of move-in day, so far, below. Send any photos, Overheards, or general information to email@example.com, and we’ll add it to the post!
Over the course of many days spent here in Butler, we’ve looked on patiently as young love has shape-shifted through a number of manifest forms, from discreet Skype sessions to full on fornication, freshman-style. But this latest display is too much—we’re putting our foot down:
Bwog was a 90s kid—we spent a lot of our youth pretending to be sick so we could stay home and watch Friends (until Nick@Nite came on, at least). We were thusly titillated by the following tip, sent in by fellow Central Perk Pundit Grace Rosen:
Filming for The Longest Week, a film starring Jason Bateman, Olivia Wilde, Billy Crudup, and our very own Jenny Slate (!) and to be released in 2012, is taking place on 116th and Claremont today until 5pm. The plot summary on IMDB, which pretty convincingly suggests that this production won’t win any awards, reads: “Affluent and […]
You’ve seen it before, and you’ll see it again: an elusive group of Columbians start to go a liiiiittle bit crazy during finals season. At this point, we’re pretty sure everyone’s just trying to comply with tradition. In any case, it makes for some quality overseens. The latest chapter, for your procrastinating pleasure:
The NoCo librarians have stuck again! After launching a pun-laden campgain against non-spillproof mugs last week, the intrepid book-minders (there are books in there somewhere, right…?) feel it necessary to now also point out that food is not allowed in the Science and Enginerring Library. Thus, they’ve printed out a picture of a most comely […]
In the midst of the campus-wide smoking ban debate, it would appear that Columbians are taking matters into their own hands. The following pun-ny sign and vessel were spotted by a tipster outside grad student haunt Haakon’s Hall, on Amsterdam:
It’s been hard to ignore the onslaught of sex-related tips we’ve received lately, so please consider this a PSA: stop being so immature! Seriously, you guys, just cut it out. Because we at Bwog think potty humor, euphemistic headlines, and double-entendre-ridden tags are totally juvenile and not funny. At all. In fact, we didn’t even […]
If you haven’t eaten lunch yet or just happen to love keeping your meat-truck options open, you might want to head down to Broadway and 114th. There you will find a pair of new(ish) food trucks: a bright green NYC Healthy Bites cart, and a recently updated red/orange Frites ‘n Meats.
The following arrangement was spotted in Furnald—which may we puh-lease just emphasize is NOT Carman—this past weekend. We’ve got to hand it to the guy who made this sign: you’ve done excellent work with the shading on the giant arrow. Nothing says “clean up after yourself” like some classic light-to-dark 3D action.
