Chauncey is a history professor specializing in 20th century American gay and lesbian history, and Gregg, his husband, is a professor of American […]

James Franco and Seth Rogen’s relationship is just as on point as Kim and Kanye’s. Uh huh, honey. (Buzzfeed) Go, Book Culture! If any Columbia University area bookstore were going to make the list as one of New York City’s best bookstores, we knew it would be you. (Gothamist) Lockdown on Monday at Yale after the school […]
Seemingly in response to Yale Daily News’s recent #SWUGNation feature and the subsequent NYMag piece that followed, an anonymous tipster sent in her own lifestyle manifesto. Read below to discover the provocative tale of the Columbia SNAG: Senior Not Amused Girl. They call it a “darty” (a daytime party), and the one he begged us to […]
With a vote on Columbia’s Baker Field building plans in Inwood coming next week, community members have posted an online petition calling for more concessions from the university. (Manhattan Times) Manning Marable, SIPA professor of history and public affairs and founding director of the Institute for Research in African American Studies, passed away yesterday. Marable […]
Orientation can be fun, provided you’re drunk or Kenneth the page. Columbia is very nice to you during NSOP (relish it!) and rents out the Met and everyone smiles and tells you where Pupin is when you ask them. There is, however, the underlying problem that you don’t know any of these people, and there’s […]
IT IS COLUMBIA. Roar, Lion, roar! Today on Daily Intel, we learned that there is a new website that makes the last 3,981 wedding announcements in the Times and made them into a database. Columbia has been mentioned 615 times. Browse and see if your TA married your other TA! Harvard had only 466 and […]
Alumni tipster and Bwog loyalist Ed Hoffman informs us that James Franco has confirmed his exodus from 209 once and for all.

Even though Blair from Gossip Girl considers them her “holy trinity,” 2/3 of HYP are officially Big Losers now! (WSJ) (Bloomberg) Columbia, on the other hand, reports smaller losses. (Reuters) Morgan Stanley’s new CEO made it through the B-School. (WSJ) New York Fashion Week keeps on strutting its stuff, despite the recession. (NYT) And in […]
Two years ago, we at Bwog lost the U.S. News and World Report‘s “Paper Trail” blog’s Best [Campus] Alternative Media Outlet poll to Wesleyan after some crotchety commenters lampooned their granola-eating ways and they retaliated en masse. We lost last year, too. This year, we have another foe: Yale. That’s right, now you have the […]
Three pieces of Columbia-related real-world news: first, some dude named Barack Obama has been chosen as TIME Magazine’s Person of the Year. The most interesting part of the feature are “previously unpublished photos” of a very cool lookin’ Obama, taken while he was at Occidental, a year before arriving at Columbia. One of the photos […]
Bwog has pretty much used up our Gossip Girl references and cliches at this point, but we were nowhere near GG-ed out enough to miss tonight’s Big Episode: “The One in Which Those Kids Pretend Columbia is Yale” aka “New Haven Can Wait.” We spent an enjoyable hour squealing with our friends every time we […]
Columbians, ready yourselves: only 7 short days until the very campus you call home is featured on the greatest television show in the history of the world.

The school year has ended and next fall many professors will be packing their bags and leaving behind their Metrocards for the greener pastures of other universities — Yale, in particular, seems to be popular among Columbia’s professorial population.
