Jessica walks up to the podium to give her valedictorian speech, all while unaware that Bella is about to turn into a vampire in the next movie.
While many students are spread out across the world this year, new staff writer Anna Eggers looks at art pieces in the 1880s-1940s collection at MoMA to give a glimpse into what awaits students in
Fret not, freshpeople who didn’t make it to campus: Sydney Contreras is here to help you recreate the oh-so formative first-year crying experiences that make and break your spirit!
In the third part of our DIY relaxtion series, Lily Icangelo takes us to the Well Woman center. It’s not just for ladies! Nestled on the first floor of Reid Hall in the Barnard Quad, (where the doors to the quad caution “Do Not Open: Alarms WILL Sound,”) is Barnard College’s Well Woman office. You […]
A mixed bag of news graces this morning’s bwoglines, but except for the announcement that Arianna Huffington will present the keynote address at the Columbia Spectator’s Annual Awards Dinner, it’s pretty much the worst of times. A winter storm warning is in effect till Wednesday evening. University weather related updates say, as we’d expect, school’s […]
Columbia professors have been elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in the journalism, law, philosophy and geography categories. Portable showers were provided for travelers stranded at JFK, desperate for hygiene. (Gothamist) Doormen all over the city are poised to strike. (NYT) Some scientists stake the claim that 3D movies are bad for […]
Next week the student councils will be sending a survey out to the student body, to gather opinion on the proposed campus smoking ban. To provide a little background, tonight we present senior editor Adam Kuerbitz’s feature on the ban, from the new issue of the Blue and White. The cigarette break has changed drastically […]
Here’s the trouble with the holidays: indulging in too many homemade, holiday treats – latkes, gelt, pecan pie, eggnog and the like – often results in no longer looking so svelte in the lovely argyle sweater Santa or the Hanukkah Armadillo brought for you. And you know, eating healthy isn’t so bad. What with Pink […]
Welcome to the latest installment of our occasional series on libraries you should really get to know. What with the widespread Columbian ignorance of most things further north than Appletree, you’ve probably never been to the library of the school of Social Work, located on the East side of Amsterdam at 121st. And with its […]
Rejoice! Mediocre falafel purveyor Amir’s has opened back up after getting beat down last week by the Department of Health. Bwog ventured into the newly-scrubbed feeling establishment to query the proprietor as to whether his food was, in fact, safe to eat. He assured us it was, and that the issue had been “just a […]
The Dems are on the ramps of Lerner, distributing cupcakes to anyone who will sign a petition to lower the price of birth control on campus. Due to the oversight of some legislative intern (probably a college student him- or herself), college students have lost the price reduction on birth control that kept us hiploose […]
Bwog gastronomic correspondent Cyrena Lee offers Columbia vegans a healthy, environmentally-conscious dining option outside Morningside Heights. Morningside Heights doesn’t have much of a reputation amongst epicures, but for vegans and even vegetarians, there is a disheartening lack of restaurants that abstain from using any meat in their kitchens. Fortunately, New York City is a haven […]
Columbia’s paranoiacs probably got chills when they received a flyer asking them if they live within 300 miles of campus and were willing to accommodate students in “the event of an emergency.” And if you’re not a paranoiac and are honestly curious as to what kind of emergency could be catastrophic enough to both shut […]
SEE CORRECTION ABOVE. As part of Black History Month, there was a blood-free HIV testing event on College Walk today (Wednesday) in order to raise awareness of the AIDS epidemic in the African-American community. It was open to the community, and we’re not sure how many test-ees were Columbia affiliates and how many weren’t, but […]
Bwog is grateful for Columbia’s sizeable flock of vending machines, with their promise of large amounts of readily available, prepackaged foods, junk and otherwise. Certain oddities within the vending machine empire, however, cannot be ignored. • The green leaf symbol, supposedly found next to so-called “healthy snack choices” in campus vending machines, suffers from highly inconsistent […]
