Bucket List represents the unbelievable intellectual privilege we enjoy as Columbia students. We do our very best to bring to your attention important guest lecturers and special events on campus. As always, feel free to mention any events we may have missed in the comments section (and/or mock our typos) and we’ll add them. Our recommendations […]
You may have missed your chance to get a balloon animal, but take heart, there’s still plenty of fun to be had around campus. Occupy CU is holding a protest outside of the Law School, calling on Michael Sovern, former CU prez and current chair of Sotheby’s, to end the worker lockout. The crowd was […]
There’s more to Columbia faculty than cute nicknames and good music taste. They also invent, prod, design and destroy all kinds of nifty things. In our newest feature, Bwog takes a moment to look back at this week’s science news, from the ultra-specific to the just-plain wacky. The headlines were compiled by our Northern Side […]
It’s Saturday morning (okay fine, afternoon—Bwog had a rough night). Enjoy the cartoons, friends. You can move onto reading actual words after you’ve had some coffee. Baby steps. Cartoons by Jody Zellman
New York schools are increasingly suspending students for even minor rule violations. Just ask Postcrypt. (NYT, Spec) Columbia econ celeb, Joseph Stiglitz, criticizes Obama’s economic policies while talking to media at Davos. Why does that sound so familiar? (Bloomberg) Criminal Sexting!

Since midterms are far off, Bwog knows you’ve avoided the sad place of Butler. Hopefully you’ve only felt that singular blast of hot air in passing, rather than embraced it. Hopefully you’ve only seen the dreary denizens thereof, rather than been one. Whatever your Butler predilections, Bwog reminds you that Butler is both very alive […]
A Bwogger passing by Wien this morning noticed this peculiar new addition to its architecture: the door on the right now has a large crack in its window and is covered in caution tape. One Wiener we spoke to said it wasn’t bad it enough for cold air to seep in, but it is still […]
You are invited to watch the State of the Union Address with CPU, the “only non-partisan group on campus,” and eat their free pizza. From them: Loud cheers, snarky comments, and polite applause are all welcome. Stop by tonight from 9:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m at the Lerner Piano Lounge.
Zoe Camp reports from this week’s SGA meeting Representatives from Bacchanal mentioned that this year’s concert will likely use all of the allotted funds provided by both BC and CC. The headliner for Bacchanal has been picked at the desired price, but there’s no word on who it is. The details haven’t been finalized, but there […]
One of the greatest perks of an Ivy League education is having all sorts of guest lecturers and talks hosted right on campus. Yet many of these great talks are not publicized enough. Enter Bucket List, a weekly feature that aggregates these events in a single location that will hopefully make you realize, like Bwog has, […]
From some of the folks who brought you the good stuff of NOM^3 comes a new on-campus, student-run sustainable food providing venture–4local, a student run business looking to cater to one of your four (coincidence? probably) basic survival needs with simple and downright tasty food. The crew at this punnily named outfit, who cook almost […]
The Columbia home page reports that the mustachioed UN-bashing UN representative John Bolton spoke at SIPA today, to a packed audience of doubtlessly dubious grad students. Besides summarizing the standard Bolton bullet points, the release directs us to the official SIPA blog, which Bwog liked until it noticed the student blogroll: one that’s all in […]
