Have you seen my dorm?
Columbia students really aren’t the best with maps. Whether we’re trying to figure out how Barnard works or asking international students for their images of America’s downfall, we’re learning at Bwog that you should probably have a map handy wherever you go instead of trying to remember it yourself. In this edition, we ask CC and Barnard students to fill out a map of Columbia’s dorms… they’re not pretty.
A brief presentation of our findings:
1. Nobody Knows where Harmony Is
Responding students called Harmony (on 110th) the following:
“Carlton Arms” (more than once)
“West Side” (more accurately, this should be the decaying husk of D’Agostino’s)
2. Hartley? Wallach? Both
Getting Hartley and Wallach mixed up is basically a 50/50 chance.
Some students decided to label the two buildings together as “HartleyWallach.”
“John Jay” and “EC” were also some very wrong guesses.
At least they were recognized as a pair – our musician called them “Mi” and “Fa.”
See more Columbia foolishness and the full maps after the jump.

It’s our final Field Notes of the season, and boy are we tired. Seriously. As we all get ready for the home stretch, we’re either getting way too much or way too little when it comes to catching Z’s. Here’s what happened on our wild weekends – as always, submit your own for the next edition to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Where are you going? Taking the road less traveled i.e. finance.
What are three things you learned at Columbia and would like to share with the class of 2020?
1. Everyone has a story. Don’t be afraid to talk to the person next to you in class or at the party. I love meeting people and learning about why they are the way they are.
More wisdom after the jump!

This morning, Dean Valentini sent out an email to the Columbia community with regard to the passing of Mounia Abousaid, a Columbia College senior from Rabat, Morocco. In the email, Valentini told students to “please take care of yourself and those around you.”
In order to offer support to Abousaid’s peers and members of the community, CPS will have walk-in hours from 6-9 pm today in Lerner, Carman, Nussbaum, and Broadway. Additionally, the Broadway Hall 14th floor lounge will be reserved as a gathering space from 12-5 pm today. “Mounia was a Comparative Literature and Society major who came to Columbia from the United World College in New Mexico,” said Valentini, “and was previously recognized for campus contributions with a King’s Crown Leadership Award.”
Nightline Peer Listening is always available, as well, for students to call between 10 pm and 3 am every night. You can find support by reaching them at 212-854-7777. In addition, Counseling and Psychological Services is available at 212-854-2878 during their regular hours. The email encourages students to reach out to Berick Center for Student Advising (212-854-6378) if their finals may be affected by these events.

does this look like the face of mercy
Bwogline: In case you were wondering how much fuller Donald Trump’s cabinet swamp could get, newly appointed Secretary of State Rex Tillerson evaded taxes in the Bahamas while running a US-Russian oil firm. (The Guardian)
Study Tip: Get out of Butler! If you’re looking for a neat new study space, try the Gottesman Library (ft. treadmills and standing desks) at Teachers College, open until 1 a.m.!
Music: Chill out and take an upbeat approach to your on-again-off-again hookup with Robotaki’s future-pop single, “Ghostboy.”
Procrastination: If you’re looking for quick ways to take time off while studying, watch 20 videos at a time from “important videos,” a 311-video playlist with mostly 30-second videos.
Overheard: “Want to hear, objectively speaking, the worse phrase I have ever used in an essay?”
