Confessions Of The Artist As A Young Intern: A Series Of Haikus

We’re already a full week into the semester, and summer seems far behind us. So do we really have to complete those reports “required” by our internships? The presentations “required” by our grants? Did anything actually happen this summer? One Bwogger examines her failure to produce a 10-page final report (the culmination of three months’ work) […]

Clash of the Classes…It’s a Thing!

We apologize for being a little late to the game on this one (the events  began yesterday), but Clash of the Classes is finally here! As of Friday, we hear that the juniors are in the lead with 1820 points, followed by the freshmen with 1170. You’d think the seniors are slackin’ with only 180 points, but […]

LectureHop: Between Iraq and a Hard Place

David Xia wandered into SIPA last night for a Saltzman Institute event on the fate of the American war in Afghanistan. The United States’ war in Afghanistan is not working, and we’re not sure how to fix it. This was the gist of Col. David Gray and Col. Gian Gentile’s (both of whom have served […]

Militarism grips Ivy League

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 kids back in school, autumn is a perfect time for street-hitting activism to bubble up through the cracks in society. In the next few weeks, anyone seeking an interesting day-trip, a way to act on latent strains of idealism, or an excuse to visit friends at school in DC should check out one of […]

CUSJ Antics Far Funnier Than CUSJ Content

The Columbia Undergraduate Science Journal has fired another salvo in their ongoing feud against Jester, claiming responsibility for the recent disappearance of 700 issues of the most recent Jester issue. They’ve placed the once-missing issues all over campus, and attached a message: “Jester Promotes Scientific Fallacies.” The full-page manifesto contains many of the CUSJ grievances, a […]

QuickSpec – Getting Pissed (About the War) Edition

More letters added to Columbia’s delicious alphabet soup UAlbany students told their teetotalist public service announcement patronizing, lame. We know some substances that could fire their creativity… Plus, without drinking, how could we learn that “blackout activity range[s] from sex to urination to fluent sentences in Hebrew” or forget “social standards, repercussions, your future, and […]

To the left, to the left

A digest of activisty news we missed from the last week. Copycats! Over at UCLA–which showed up on our “WTF” radar last year because of that taser business–protesters actually shut down a talk by some Minutemen-affiliated speakers. (note: This is not the Minuteman Project, but the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps.) Or, rather, according to the site above […]

Anti-War groups fight over just how anti-war to be

Update, 3:00 PM: The Dems, who were not consulted in the reporting of this post (to Bwog’s discredit) have some additions and clarifications after the jump. The College Democrats, who collaborated with several anti-war groups (Students for Justice in the Middle East, the Working Families Party, Lucha, World Can’t Wait, and the ISO) on sending […]

Monday Interview: Pop Goes the Peninsula…

Nothing like a volatile region pushed to the brink of nuclear conflict to make onstage riots seem like academic minutiae.  For perspective on the Korean peninsula’s unfolding crisis, Bwog’s Nicholas Frisch turned to Joseph Hong, SEAS’07, a Korean-American student, and a human rights activist.  On a personal level, how has this affected you in terms […]

Token GS Gossip

What’s the theme of this year’s GS Spring Formal? “50 Years in One Night…1900-1950.” Spectacular. As if the phrase “50 Years in One Night” weren’t funny enough in connection with my fellow GSmates, they manage to pick, of all the possible 50 year spans of time, the one most likely to inspire stories that begin, […]
