It is the worst of times, and the most liminal of times. Reading week snuck up on us with a slap and here we are during finals: broken, disheartened, and yearning for summer (why is it still
Rejoice! The Blue and White has just arrived on campus. You can find a copy in your dormitory, Butler, Lerner, and the Diana. For those of you impatient to get your hands on the real deal, here are a few highlights from the issue: Barnard discusses opening admissions to trans women Should university administrators be […]
Deantini’s love of Bwog contests knows no bounds. In a recent meeting, he told us that Columbia College is trying to step up its social media game and desperately needs a witty hashtag for Twitter and Instagram. “I’ve been wracking my brain, losing sleep for weeks, but I just can’t think of a good CC-related […]

If you feel Columbia’s burgeoning hip hop scene is too reliant on irony and faux-misogyny, look no further than tonight’s politically charged “Born in Flames” concert at Roone Arledge Auditorium in Lerner. Students for Justice in Palestine (along with a plethora of other groups, including Lucha, Columbia ISO, B.S.O., Radical C.U.N.T.S., Freedom School, Asian American Alliance, S.E.E.J., […]
On one blustery winter evening each year, (read: tonight at 7 pm), the Asian American Alliance (AAA) hosts cultureSHOCK in Lerner to showcase Asian American performance, fashion, and FOOD from groups across the Columbia community.

Registration is open, the freshpeople are settling in, and the sun is sort of shining. Convocation’s cancellation means the lawns are more luscious than ever, so go loll about while you can. Here’s to another splendid and occasionally trying year. We missed you very much!
The Columbia Housing Gods have upgraded your digs. Much thanks to the lovely Joyce Jackson for sharing this definitive list of renovations. Here’s what you can expect Carman: Freshies are in for a treat: a glistening new fitness room. Couch muffins can enjoy True Blood marathons on the flat screen televisions just installed in all floor […]
The triumphant shouts of eager RA’s echoed around the quad. The sun shined blissfully and the skies were clear. Today was move-in day made in heaven. Irene left hundreds of cancelled flights, blocked roads, and disrupted trips in her wake, so only some freshpeople made it to move-in. The NSOP committee expects the stragglers arrive […]
Bwog spent the morning roaming the green hills of campus, greeting freshpeople and snacking (there are mountains of free food here. If you are near campus, we recommend dropping by). Everything is surprisingly calm. We expected a surge of freshlings because of all the scheduling mishaps, but people seem to be arriving in an orderly […]
Nixon the skate, snow, and surf lifestyle brand that is. You can join forces with them by purchasing one of these dorky Beastie Boy themed watches.
