While the highest-polling Republican candidate right now may look a lot like our University president, back in 1952, the president of Columbia University was actually elected president of the United States. Dwight D. Eisenhower, who had been university president since 1948 on the date of his election in 1952, had spent a lot of his […]

We’ve been back to school long enough to make some history, so what better time for a good ol’ #tbt? Bwog’s Maddie Stearn went deep into the recesses of the internet (a.k.a. The Columbia Spectator Archives) and shares some gems of history (well, herstory, to be more accurate). “Coed At Last” was the front page […]

Take a moment, this finals season, and remember this school’s long and noble past. Remember the simpler times, the more idyllic times, the times when prostitutes gathered across the street and young men stole wine from our president. Debauched Bwogger Henry Litwhiler brings you a moment from our glorious, degenerate history.  “King’s College” summons up certain idyllic images […]

Once again, Anna Hotter dives into the archives to investigate Columbia’s past in the city. She returns with pictures and tales from Midtown East, where the College made its last, brief stop before coming to Morningside.  As we mentioned in last week’s instalment of #tbt, Columbia moved to Madison Avenue and East 49th Street in 1857. During the College’s […]

When Columbia was first founded as King’s College, it was located where we find the Financial District today. Its so-called Park Place campus consisted of pretty much just one, long building, overlooking the Hudson. It was surrounded by fields and farmland, which extended far up the largely unpopulated island. Braving the archives, correspondent Anna Hotter brings you this […]

#TBT: Last Weekend

Today, in a very special #tbt, we come together as a community, to remember a time long past. Some would call it a golden age; some would reject it as cultural fantasy, nostalgia for a time that never was, an escape for the harsh reality of now. We leave meaning to be assigned by our progeny, […]

Bwog is well aware of how sick and tired everyone is from the hellish two weeks we call midterms, so we decided to bring you a bit of optimism: It appears we have it much better than previous generations. Throwbacker Paula Pineros brings us this week’s edition of #tbt. Not only do we have a much […]

On this drizzly fall day, a reminder that you stand not alone, but in the footsteps of the shades of the past. “What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.” Where you have procrastinated with Alma, they have procrastinated with Alma. Where you have […]

Now that school is fully in session, Columbia students can focus on what they really came here for: the opportunity to share their righteous outrage via protest. Almost every nice day (and some rainy ones, as in the case of yesterday’s yellow-wearing, Hong Kong-supporting, apparently water-proof protestors) has seen some form of demonstration between Low […]
