Though I speak with the tongues of Bwog and of students, but have not pitches, I am become as sounding Spec, or a tinkling Jester.
Bwogger Jordan Merrill tells the people what they need to hear. As Columbia slash Barnard students, we can be certain about one thing: we are all fucking nerds. I never thought it would come to the
Sports Editor? Staff Writer? Jana Jaran attends a Columbia University Public Outreach lecture lead by astronomy researcher John Brewer about methods of finding planets in space and what the discovery of Earth-like planets mean for our future.
Happening in the World: Thirteen same-sex couples in Japan have filed a lawsuit in Japan, alleging that the country’s rejection of same-sex marriages violates their constitutional rights.
Yesterday, Chief Architect of the IBM Food Trust and Columbia Alumnus Yi-Min Chee came to speak at Columbia about the business applications of blockchain technology in his lecture “Blockchain: A Solutions Perspective”. In collaboration with
Once again, Staff Writer Sam Azanza complains about something. This time, it’s about Barnard’s roommate questionnaire. As always, please take their articles with a grain of salt.
Yesterday in Mudd Hall, Martina T. Nguyen, Assistant Professor in History at Baruch College, led a lecture event on Political Literary Action and the Self-Strengthening Literary Movement in Vietnam. Bwog sent staff writer, Maya Corral,
It’s the day after Valentines Day, which means all of the cheap chocolates at Morton Williams are going on sale — stock up while you can. While you’re waiting in the Mo’ Willy’s line with
Managing Editor Zack Abrams recently got a full weekend’s worth of fun out of a rented projector, adapter, and screen from IMATS at Barnard. Here’s his guide on how to bring the fun to your
The return from winter break marks that hallowed time when students actually go out at night instead of sleeping/doing homework/applying for jobs/[insert probably acceptable excuse here]. Let these notes from the field serve as your hazy memory of last night, (because Momma Bwog knows you don’t remember any of it.) Remember to send your stories to […]
Last night Bwog reported that ZBT had lost its national charter until 2015. Since then, Student Affairs and ZBT’s national organization (press release below) have verified this. The press release notes that operations of Columbia University’s ZBT have been suspended “following a decision made by the current undergraduate brothers of the Delta Chapter to resign […]
At last night’s IGC meeting, the Director of Fraternity and Sorority Life announced that Columbia’s ZBT has lost its original charter from the national organization, as reported originally by The Lion. It’s unclear why this happened, or whether it’s related to the hazing incident or the Ivy League Championships celebration party that caused them to lose […]
Killer reporting from Spec‘s Abby Abrams confirms: the field hockey team was responsible for the hazing at ZBT. Writes Abrams, “The field hockey team was welcoming its new first-year players with an annual tradition: a fraternity crawl. The last stop of the night was Zeta Beta Tau.” Says one connected ZBT alumnus,“The women’s field hockey team […]
In an effort to keep institutional memory alive, Bwog wants to teach you about major issues and topics at Columbia. If there is something you would like to know more about, look it up on wikicu or email email@example.com. Today, we attempt to explain why you’re not at a frat fraternity party like all your […]
After months of receiving responses like “All information being provided is included in the release that was sent” (Laurence Bolotin), “It would be inappropriate for anyone from our Department to comment” (Athletics, full email after jump), and “you’re on Bwog I’m not gonna tell you anything, assface” (all our friends), we finally got an email […]
Zeta Beta Tau has lost its brownstone over what we hear was a party violation. ZBT, the baseball fraternity, was on thin ice after last semester’s still unspecified hazing incident, and would have lost its charter then had KevSho not intervened and reversed the Greek Judicial Board’s recommendation, so long as they adhered to a zero-strike […]
After a hazing scandal that put ZBT in high risk of losing its charter and subsequent controversy and mockery, a statement by the fraternity announced that the decision to rescind the charter was officially reverted. Spec has the full story, reporting that KevSho made the decision after meeting with ZBT and Greek Judicial Board leadership. While […]
After Zeta Beta Tau lost their charter to a hazing scandal and all the controversy that followed, CUMB pounced at the chance to make fun of the situation with a moving account of the memories that will remain as ZBT leaves us. We found the Breakfast Club music incredibly fitting and CUMB’s absolute lack of compunction hilarious.
In the past few days, Bwog has received many tips and comments about the hazing scandal within Columbia’s Greek community. We reached out to IGC, Student Affairs, students, etc. for more detailed information, especially after news broke on Wednesday night. Spec got confirmation that some fraternity was losing their charter from the Inter-Greek Council Judicial […]
While walking along 115th street this morning, Bwog noticed a heap of chicken bones sitting on a stoop, evidently already picked over by sidewalk scavengers. Who could have such slovenly habits? The top of the doorframe gave us our answer–the boys of Zeta Beta Tau. Cheers to the first one who walks outside.
