In keeping with the theme of making our baby Bwoggers cover events they have no contextual knowledge of, we sent our Sunday daily editor to Monday night’s roundtable discussion of dance criticism at Barnard titled “Team Dance: The Dance Critics of the New York Time.” Mason Amelotte shares his thoughts below. I entered the unfamiliar […]

Supreme Court Could Be Bad News for ‘Bo

The Supreme Court has agreed to hear Fisher v. Texas, a case which, if ruled in favor of Fisher, would effectively undo PrezBo’s landmark 2003 affirmative action win. PrezBo scored that victory, Grutter v. Bollinger, coming east from UMich, where he was a big affirmative action supporter. The conclusion of the case affirmed public universities’ right […]

Sarah Dooley “Discovered” by NYTimes

The Gray Lady‘s Freakonomics blog included a post this morning about our very own beloved Sarah Dooley. The poster, Ian Ayres predicted: “she is going to make it big. I’m not sure how, but remember you heard it here first.” False. We actually started praising Dooley’s hilarious YouTube series, AndSarah, about a year ago. Dooley […]

You Object, They Take Notes

Rats, garbage, and the yells of Take Back the Night–they’ve heard about it all. Last year, the city surveyed 25,000 households and asked them to ponder what makes them happy.  These poetic responses were boiled down into a series of categories about city services and quality of life in various neighborhoods. Using The New York […]

Obama’s Roommate, Plus Obama’s New York

Two pieces of (somewhat) Obama-related media: first, one of his first college roommates writes about their time together in the fall of 1981. Phil Boerner ’84, who transferred with Obama from Occidental, remembers Obama that, “as a host and roommate, he sometimes did the shopping and cooked the chicken curry.” Oh, and Obama may have […]

Columbia is in The Paper (and Magazine?) of Record

Several readers have tipped Bwog off that the cover story for this week’s New York Times Magazine discusses transgender students, and centers specifically around Rey, a transgender student who enrolled at Barnard last year. The article takes a look at the treatment of transgender students at different universities–for instance, Wesleyan uses gender-neutral pronouns like “ze” […]

It sounded like a good idea at the time…

Bwog noted in February that iPods, newly present in Lerner vending machines, had apparently become as necessary to our daily lives as chips and condoms. In today’s edition of Education Life, the New York Times makes the same observation, and discloses that the same number of iPods have been stolen (four) as have been bought. […]
