Check out these shots we got of Meryl struttin’ her […]
Much like your peers, you may have taken a well-deserved, month-long, post-finals nap. Perhaps you’re feeling disconnected from the Columbia community as of late. Luckily, Bwog doesn’t sleep very much. Broadway Lobby gets a grassy makeover for Summer! The sports season may be over for the Columbia Lions, but Lions Basketball star Brian Barbour and […]
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 […]

If you’re one of the lucky ones (or one of the unlucky ones who still have no idea where you’ll be living in 2 months) let us know in the comments. Don’t panic! All through the summer, we’ll continue to answer your housing questions. […]
As you take refuge from the sweltering midsummer heat (or cold, if you’re super abroad) amidst frozen margaritas with friends or popsicles on a couch you haven’t left in three days, the world somehow manages to continue turning. Keep reading to find out in which direction. Remember when J.P. Morgan lost more than $2 […]
History repeats itself, 2016. Prefrosh Facebook one another. Sometimes, they plan parties. This year, they’ve been inspired by Mean Girls, the 2004 teen comedy starring cute Lindsay Lohan. Those are pretty good quotes, to be fair, and these prefrosh clearly love the idea of Columbia. If only we could buy some of their enthusiasm on the street and […]
Whether to work an internship, catch up on credits, or avoid family, a significant portion of Columbia stays in NYC between academic years. A summer in the ‘hood allows students to see a different side of the city, one in which papers aren’t due tomorrow morning and a happy hour margarita at The Heights might actually serve to cool […]
Love is in the air! Just look around you—sometimes you have to squint a little, but there’s magic in the minutiae. On 116th and Broadway: Girl: So do you love me or not? Guy: Right now I just have to take a massive dump. Coming out of a girls’ bathroom: Guy: I don’t understand what […]
The Return of Cooking with Bwog – no cooking involved! The end is of summer is imminent (Monday, officially), which happens to nearly coincide with tomorrow’s Morningside Heights Farmers Market. So, to celebrate the season’s end, Bwog recommends a no-cooking-involved summer salad. It also keeps well in your mini-fridge, so you’ll have ample opportunity to […]
How to lose friends and alienate people Oh Sarah Palin, is there anything to which you are not tangentially relevant? The first of a two-part series on truck-based dessert foods. Reading doesn’t count unless someone sees you doing it. Why try to forget about all the fun stuff you missed out on when you could […]
Bwog’s suburban diarist Madeline L. is spending the summer away from the city — and she’s enjoying it. Here, our diarist disects the nature of the suburban summer, and why it beats Morningside anyday. Summer in the suburbs is built on a founding myth; an event within a circle of friends that becomes retold in […]
Gather round Columbia, it’s time to re-welcome IvyGate into our browsers and into our hearts. Naturally, it has returned dressed to the nines, with a new WordPress redesign and fresh-faced summer editors. Bwogger Justin Vlasits favors the mouse over chalk-underlines in the new masthead (see above), while a Yalie friend of Bwog noticed that clicking […]
Dear Readers, You may have noticed that posts have become less frequent and more remote of late. With only a few staff at and around Columbia, news and gossip is harder to come by. For the remaining months of the summer, Bwog will be in hibernation, rousing itself when it finds something too juicy to […]
