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
Bucket List represents the 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. If you notice any events that have been left off the list, or have a correction to make, please leave them in the comments. Recommended: HATE: […]
Movie Man Mark Hay is back, with a vengeance. A few days ago, a Columbia professor up and decked a female co-worker in the face. Totally uncalled for, totally unexpected, and totally scintillating violence. Somehow, as a result, your reviewer has spent the past week arguing the relative merits of violence in film and the […]
Hawkmadinebwog is no prophet, but either Odysseus is getting ready to slaughter Penelope’s suitors, or the red-tails are out for spring! Several people wrote in yesterday to tell us that a juvenile red-tail was hanging around Hamilton and Low until catching his meal and dropping feathers on the passers-by of College Walk. Hawkmadinebwog is not […]
Bwog’s Associate Child Wrangler and Grassy Median Monitor Austin Brauser spotted a small person hiding in the brush on College Walk. Are the British back? Is he a CUAssassin? Don’t be alarmed – he’s probably just defending himself from stressed-out Columbians. After the jump: Young person threatens cameraman.
(Hi Gothamist!) After spending much of the day on upper campus, Hawkmadinejad finally caught her lunch on the South Lawn. The catch was not quite so dramatic as the last time we saw her dine at Columbia, but the pictures are still pretty excellent. The creature was too small to be a squirrel, and hawkmadinebwog struggled to get a clear […]
Avian tipster extraordinaire Courtney Douds has sent along the following absolutely insane photos of your Hawkmadeinjad ruthlessly tearing into her* prey outside Math today. * Douds also points out that “this red-tail is of a size that makes her more likely to be female, since female raptors tend to be about a third larger than […]
Right this minute, on the lawn in front of John Jay, the hawk that’s been spotted near Lewisohn and the LLC is lunching on a pigeon. It swooped down and snatched it in dramatic fashion. Onlookers, please send in your photos and stories. Bored studiers, please suggest names for our hawk. Apparently, they’re territorial, so […]
The cruel cycle of nature continues–right in front of Lewisohn! Writes a tipster: “Just at noon (right now!) I saw a GIANT hawk in front of the sculpture facing Lewisohn, chowing down on some small animal. It’s neat to see real wild life in the city.” And it’s neat to see such fitting metaphors for […]
Not content with battling it out in the U.S. News and World Report rankings, the Ivies are throwing it down by way of that most gentlemanly of pastimes: war! Or rather, inter-campus computerized simulations of games that simulate war! Kind of! Our buddies at GoCrossCampus have organized an Ivy League championship. While Columbia hasn’t won a […]
With Fair Alma’s ritual disembowelment of the hapless Penn Quakers a mere five days away, the Columbia College senior class decided to celebrate homecoming week with a little pugilism of its own. With Decolonization day going at full thrust less than 20 yards in front of them, the CC seniors lined up for some BBQ–with […]
Aside from the lethal shooting of an NYU student, the burial of the kids and adults who didn’t make it out of that Bronx house fire, and about two days of above 65 degree weather, you didn’t miss much in NYC. But at Columbia, on the other hand…just look at all of the exciting things […]
Blades on campus After raising the level of machete-related campus chatter to an all-time high last Friday, Spec cruelly crushed our Indiana Jones dreams with a correction today. “According to a statement issued Friday by Columbia’s office of public affairs—the first since the incident—the door was opened by a handyman under police supervision with a […]
An anonymous Bwog tipster reports this “fuck-you” fest and near fist-fight at everyone’s favorite cardboard-as-pizza joint… Just letting you guys know that a friend and I had the opportunity to witness a small pre-Halloween brawl at Pinnacle tonight at approximately 2 am. It started when we noticed many expletives coming from the lower level of […]
