The Blue and White

Columbia’s Undergraduate Magazine. Founded 1890.

The NSOP Issue

Our full issue way of saying “Welcome back, we’ve missed you.”

In which our writers muse lightheartedly on campus happenings, recent excursions, and Morningside quirks—Talk of the Town–style, of course.

Profiles of Columbia’s most captivating seniors, from activists to artists, misanthropes to wunderkinds.

A place for budding campus creatives. We publish poetry in Measure for Measure and prose in The Shortcut. If you would like to submit pieces for consideration, kindly email

Constructed from scratch by a Blue and White staffer. Wednesday- or Thursday-level, ostensibly. Share the link to solve with friends!

Longform investigations and essays on undergraduate life at Columbia, brought to you by our perennially perspicacious Staff Writers.

Deep discussions with the brightest stars in Columbia’s night sky—professors, artists-in-residence, decision-makers, and more.

Fun fact: The Blue and White is the only magazine on campus with comic relief! 

Our multimedia works that defy categorization by students who define creation. Read comics, watch animated shorts, listen to our podcast, The Blue Jay, here.

Thumb through our old issues. The history of our publication lives here in our archive.
