John Henry Coatsworth, the Provost of Columbia University, will resign from his position on June 30, 2019, according to an email sent out by University President Lee Bollinger early this morning.
Ahh, yes, the elusive single. Need your private time? Scarred by getting sexiled in Carman? Internal editor and proud resident of a McBain single Zoe Sottile tells you how it’s done.
It’s been midterm week for two months now. You’re staying alive on a few hours of sleep, dining hall coffee, and fantasies of driving off into the sunset in PrezBo’s Audi. So what do you say when your aunt asks how your classes are going, and you haven’t been since the midterm? Bwog has some […]
Happy Almost Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving is basically America’s excuse to eat an insane amount of heart-attack provoking food, embrace awkward interactions with family, give cheery toasts that make your grandma blush scarlet, explain to your aunt Marge *once again* that you are happy being single, and generally give thanks that there is such a beautiful mess […]
Columbia Housing may have issues, but that shouldn’t impact our impressions of the many facilities workers who clean and repair our dorms on a daily basis. As we approach Thanksgiving, here are some ways that you can show your appreciation to the hardworking people who keep our dorms from falling apart. Say hi to facilities when they’re on […]
As is our tradition at the beginning of Thanksgiving Break, Bwog has compiled a list of the many things we’re thankful for this fall, ranging from parents to booze to cats. Comment what you’re thankful for below, if you feel so inclined – this is the last chance you’ll get to comment on one of our […]
Yes, the time for thankfulness is over (but never truly over). We are officially back to ride out the rest of the semester on auto-pilot as most of us just want it to be over by this point. By while away, many fought off family political discussions and awkward encounters in favor of celebrating the […]
The countdown until Thanksgiving begins: in 5 days you have to get through a dinner with your nosy family. Don’t worry, Bwog’s got your back: here’s how to get out of some of the worst conversation topics. An obvious one: the election. You already know that your crazy uncle wants dinner and a show and will say […]
Here at Bwog we’re totally #grateful we had the opportunity to go back home, lug piles of still-incomplete homework across the country, have unproductive fights with the actual fam, and watch Jessica Jones to completion. And sometimes it got a little spicy, as evinced by our horrifying (or is it tantalizing?) screenshot from the Iowa Snapstory. As always, […]
We all know how it feels to be a bit… er… loose with our definition of “telling the truth” when nosy Aunt Madge asks all of those invasive questions during Thanksgiving dinner. Here’s a quick reference sheet that will help you translate your Fall-semester shenanigans into more family-friendly language before you head into the fire […]
Here at Bwog, we support each other no matter what. And now that the Holiday season is upon us, support is more important than ever. You’re probably wondering… Support? What kind of support will I need? It’s Thanksgiving, after all. I can’t wait to go home, eat some turkey/tofurky (we at Bwog respect all lifestyle choices), […]
Columbia will be offering FLEX dollars to qualifying CC and SEAS students over Thanksgiving break, in order to purchase food while the dining halls are closed. Apply by this Thursday at 6 p.m. using this form. The application form asks you to confirm you are a recipient of Columbia grant funds, on a Columbia meal […]
Whether you decide to celebrate Columbus’ slaughtering of the natives Turkey Day or not, Daily Editor Mason Amelotte recommends you take a moment to reflect on the true nature of Thanksgiving: sex puns. Indeed, Thanksgiving is the only holiday (other than Presidents’ Day, but that’s a different story) where sex jokes can should run rampant in a family setting. Wondering who the real kinky […]
Some got to throw out buzzwords like “privilege,” “problematic,” and “cisnormative” to their MeeMaws. Others stayed on campus and feasted on the fruits of their own labor (hopefully better than last year). Wherever your Thanksgiving took you, we hope you stuffed yourself on delicious food. You have the following to be thankful for:
In case you’re staying on campus this turkey day, there’s always Westside around for your food-coma needs. Bwog sent Senior Staff Writer Alexander Pines to scope out this year’s offerings. Not going to lie, I was expecting something weirder out of the place that brought me “Oreos Pancakes” (in other words, soggy oreos covered in […]
If you’re finally at home (or stuck on campus) and the Cowboys vs. Redskins game hasn’t exactly done much to provoke the Thanksgiving spirit, it’s good to know that there’s still something to be thankful for… Thanksgiving feasts! Let the tryptophan commence!
