Kale and lettuce plants have disappeared from the Barnard Community Garden, according to an Instagram story from the Barnard Garden Club.
Administrators and public health experts projected confidence and optimism for Columbia’s return to campus this fall in the most recent University Life Forum.
We are almost halfway through the summer and some of you might be saying AHHHH. We here at Bwog have been keeping ourselves busy (or not). Here’s to hoping the semester does not start up
Several teams, including Columbia Football, have posted their game schedules for the 2021 season, confirming that the Lions are ready to jump back into intercollegiate competition after being on hold due to the pandemic.
Let’s get to work!
Today is the final day of NSOP proper. Congratulations first-years on making it through your first week of Columbia! The coming weeks will be a lot more filled up with work and activities, but for what it’s worth, they’ll probably have a bit less drama. There are still some activities planned, but feel free to […]
Perhaps one of the greatest collective action Columbia faces (aside from keeping the Butler bathrooms clean) is keeping WikiCU updated with relevant information. To solve this problem, CCSC and ESC will be hosting the 4th Annual Wikithon tonight from 5 PM until 8 PM in the John Jay Lounge. We heard free Dinosaur BBQ will be […]
Days on Campus have passed, which only re-emerges memories of how you once spent your days anxiously awaiting to become a Columbia student. This undoubtedly included stalking our beloved WikiCU, and as a result you arrived on campus for NSOP feeling like you had all the special knowledge on the ins and outs of Morningside. Reward […]
Future journalists listen up. This next Senior Wisdom is from Conor Skelding, famous in the journalistic community for his baby blues. Name, Hometown, School, Major: Conor Skelding, River Forest, IL, Columbia College, English Claim to fame: Published all sorts of stuff (at Bwog and The Blue and White for 3.5 years, at the Lion for 0.5.). Preserved […]
Whenever we needed to research housing options, refresh our memories on the words to “Roar Lion Roar” or cry about the untimely death of Alexander Hamilton, WikiCU was there for us. Now it’s your turn.Come edit or add to WikiCU’s pages at the Wikithon, this Wednesday from 6-11 in the John Jay Lounge! And there […]
In a mood inspired by times past, Bwog has been meditating over institutional memory a lot recently. Though our community benefits from the healthy, competitive presence of at least two robust publications, many of the finer points of our contemporary experience are annually lost come May. Bwog humbly suggests that you help to remedy the […]
WikiCU announced today that there will be a change at captain’s chair, with Sam Aarons, SEAS ’14 and one of Bwog’s webmasters, taking control of WikiCU’s operations and Bwog taking a longer term advisory role. We’d link to WikiCU, but it’s still plagued by malware. Get on that, Sam. Statement from the outgoing WikiCU team […]
And by cooties, we mean it’s been hacked and infected by malware. Bwog is staffed by hopelessly computer-illiterate History majors, so we turned to one of our backend tech gurus to explain why you should stay the fuck away from WikiCU until told otherwise. It’s all about how dangerous malware could be. While most people will get […]
We continue to respect our heritage/amorous affair with our mother-magazine, The Blue & White by posting each issue of the magazine online. The April issue, available this week around campus, is a cornucopia of delights: an interview with Dean Peter Awn; the quixotic quest for a Quidditch team; and a reflection on Columbia’s recent media malaise. Check out the May issue, also […]
’14ers out there may have realized that Bwog can be a valuable source of information about Columbia. However, even seasoned Columbians may not know some of this carefully checked, entirely reliable trivial knowledge. Great for parents weekend, when you want to steer away from the topic of grades and significant others. Columbia has its own […]
In the realm of the internets, it seems that WikiCU has come to a crossroads — with the site’s owner graduating in May and most of its editors being Columbia alumni, the future of WikiCU will depend on either a “marketing strategy” of some some sort, or on someone else taking the reigns. While Columbia […]
Remember Project Athena, the promised Columbia wiki that was supposed to revolutionize campus life? Right, “barely” was our response, too. That is, until a mysterious i-banker IMed Bwog with the tantalizing info: Project Athena was online, and hosted off campus. We were quickly directed to wikicu.com, the slightly less sonorous realization of the project. While most of the […]
