Administrators and public health experts projected confidence and optimism for Columbia’s return to campus this fall in the most recent University Life Forum.
We are almost halfway through the summer and some of you might be saying AHHHH. We here at Bwog have been keeping ourselves busy (or not). Here’s to hoping the semester does not start up
Several teams, including Columbia Football, have posted their game schedules for the 2021 season, confirming that the Lions are ready to jump back into intercollegiate competition after being on hold due to the pandemic.
Bwog uncovered that President Lee Bollinger as the head of the University administration suggested the possibility of pressuring non-tenure-track instructors, in particular, to teach in person for the Fall 2020 semester. Additionally, we uncovered deep
In this lecture hall review, Bwog navigates its way through the maze of Schermerhorn to arrive in a cushioned wonderland inhabited by over-zealous freshmen and cocky professors alike. We all have high expectations the first time we walk into Schermerhorn 501. It’s the first semester of freshman year, and you’ve optimistically set out to worm […]
Find a fresh issue of The Blue and White around campus. In this Blue Note, Michael Adame investigates the World Cup’s impact on campus life. When the United States exited the 2010 FIFA World Cup tournament in the first round of the knockout stage, Columbia University economics professor and U.S. Soccer Federation President Sunil Gulati […]
That means “a motley assortment of things.” Seatbelts, everyone! Gulati says the U.S team was “capable of more” in the World Cup. Columbia is a partner in a jargon-y, confusing government project called the “NYC Media Lab.” Breaking: James Franco is self-important. He is also an artist. Joseph Stiglitz makes $109,919 a year is the […]
The latest issue has hit campus! Look for it in most dorms and public spaces. Today, Bwog Editor Emeritus Jim Downie investigates the other half of Sunil Gulati’s life. It’s a beautiful August day in Mexico City. The temperature is a balmy 78 degrees; the lung-choking smog is blown away by a cool breeze. In […]
Bwog loves soccer, so we were happy to see popular Econ professor (and president of the US Soccer Federation) Sunil Gulati announcing the United States’s bid for the 2018 and 2022 FIFA World Cups on Monday. Gulati, who was also involved in the first World Cup in the United States in 1994, will be leading […]
Did you know that other people associated with Columbia besides the Terrible 12s have been doing things (exciting things, in fact) this summer? It’s true! Here, we’ll prove it to you: — Columbia law professor (and subject of a 2007 Blue and White profile) Tim Wu wrote an op-ed for the New York Times about […]
If you’re Sunil Gulati, of course. And he is, today, marking the first time anyone has been wished happy birthday for two consecutive years by Bwog, which hopes it will be as dashingly handsome as the U.S. Soccer Federation prez when it gets that old. The silver hair and sarcastic cracks get us every time. […]
Parody QuickBwog satirizes us and you, Bwog readers, alike. And now we’re QuickFedding it. How meta is that? Thankfully, it wasn’t difficult to come up with a “ridiculously forced theme” for the rest of the issue: Mock Bored@Butler Mock GoAskAlice Mock IMDB Mock Bush Iraq Strategy, including cartoons inexplicably anthropomorphizing bunnies and carrots Mock…er, real interview with […]
As if trying to singlehandedly bring prosperity to Africa, or at least co-ordinate his wardrobe of fuschia, canary yellow, and shiny neon green blazers wasn’t enough, Bwog has learned that Columbia’s own (and only) Catalan economist, Xavier Sala-i-Martin, has been serving as president of FC Barcelona, which won the 2006 UEFA Champions League cup back in […]
Bwog tipster Christopher Morris-Lent sent in the first–but certainly not the last–gem of the year from Sunil Gulati’s Principles class: Gulati, speaking about inferior goods to a [presumably female] student: But would it hurt you to have a hot dog? If I gave you a hot dog right now, wouldn’t it bring you some pleasure? […]
Bwog would not want to be Landon Donovan–or anyone associated with the US Soccer Team–after our boys’ 2-1 loss to Ghana yesterday. Sunil was not happy. “This is where the entire world is watching,” said the United States Soccer Federation president, with the kind of icy disapproval reserved for those who confuse Lorentz curves with […]
John Klopfer reports: Gulati drew up this diagram for us in class today. Note the big smudges where Florida and Louisiana should be… He told us to stop making fun of his drawing, added Florida, changed his mind, erased it (“Who needs Florida, anyway?”), looked closer, smeared the crap out of the Gulf coast, and […]
