With the end of, hopefully, our last online semester comes another edition of Bwog Staff’s favorite running series. Read up on the music that defined our semester while getting vaccinated and practicing social distancing!
This past year has been nothing short of a disaster for many people, but working, learning, and socializing through our computer screens has produced a few silver linings that we’d want to stick around.
A noose was found at the Union Theological Seminary on Wednesday afternoon in an incident currently being investigated by the NYPD as a hate crime.
Bwog can somehow explain the past 22 days of housing, but the mystery behind the resurrecting 6-person Plimpton suite will remain unsolved.
Upheaval, new faces, rap music, and fractions were what best characterized last night’s GSSC’s meeting, at least according to our resident Roone reporter, Romane Thomas. With a notable lack of alliteration, she breezily gives us all the deets. Yesterday night’s General Studies Student Council (GSSC) meeting turned theatrical when the student council moved from its normal meeting […]
CCSC got down to business at last night’s meeting, formulating what specific requests they would send to Deantini after the results of the recent survey were examined. Joe Milholland, from behind a cup of Starbucks coffee, reports on what CCSC eventually decided were the most pertinent issues. They’ll be easy to guess if you’ve read our […]
The preliminary results from the University Senate’s much-touted Quality of Life survey were released this weekend. Bwog looked at numbers so you don’t have to, and here’s what we found interesting: Note: all results are based on the pool of people who responded, so data is not representative of entire student body but rather the […]
This semester, both Student Wellness Project and University Senate worked on some impressive studies of general student life across Columbia University. Some of the results came out at the end of the semester and makes for good reading material for a “productive” study break. SWP looked at a variety of ways the community is hurting […]
For a little extra context regarding the whole GS Class Day rescheduling debacle (which could have ended worse), check out GSSC’s survey, embedded below. They surveyed about half the graduating class, as well as a handful of CC, SEAS, and BC students. Highlights: 62% of graduating seniors have at least one guest unable to come, […]
Columbia Dining has opened their Customer Satisfaction Survey for the year – now’s your chance to say everything you’ve been holding back (bad and good!) about the dining locations across campus. The survey is running from now until this Friday and can be found here for students, faculty, and staff. For each completed survey, Dining […]
The results from the Task Force on Military Engagement’s student survey are in, and will not be officially released until tomorrow. While 11,629 students were eligible to participate, only 2,252 completed the survey. Check out the Task Force’s full ‘Executive Summary’ here, which contains survey results, the Task Force’s suggestions and Columbia’s history with the military. […]
The University Senate released an online survey this evening aimed to gauge student opinion on the subject of military presence at Columbia. There are general questions about the military’s relationship with Columbia, and there is a question that directly asks: I ______ of a return of ROTC to Columbia’s campuses. You can access the survey via their […]
It’s that time of year–the Dining Services Customer Satisfaction Survey 2010 is here! For every survey that is filled out, Dining Services will donate $0.50 to the soup kitchen at the Broadway Presbyterian Church. In addition, Dining Services will match, in food donations, the total donation amount from all of the surveys taken. Also, something […]
When the results of the NROTC survey were released last week, students complained that the results had been combined for CC, SEAS, and GS. While the breakdown may no longer matter that much, Bwog has finally obtained the percentage breakdown by school: NO YES ABSTAIN CC 53.0% 46.8% 0.2% SEAS 46.4% 53.6% […]
In a statement to the GS student body, GSSC President Brody Berg expressed skepticism about the results of the NROTC survey, writing that “I believe that this poll result is meaningless due to the huge number of apparently fraudulent votes.” Although almost 2000 fraudulent votes were removed (including one student who voted 276 times) by […]
Guard the link to your NROTC survey with your life, as that link that was emailed to you this morning is a personalized link. What this strangely inefficient system means is that if someone clicks your link, they can change your vote. Of course, this is only coming to light after numerous students group leaders […]
Some version of the ROTC survey has been emailed to you this morning by the CCSC, ESC and GSSC. The survey will be open until December 1 and the councils encourage you to “take your time” with it. A link to the ‘yes’ or ‘no’ question “do you support bringing a Naval ROTC program to […]
With the NROTC survey scheduled for the week of November 24th (the days before Thanksgiving), normally the events and editorials would already be flying back and forth. But with some sort of “election” last week, student groups are only just now coming around to the NROTC debate. Leading opposition to the return of NROTC is […]
