Social Media Editor and self-proclaimed Milstein expert (as well as IMATS employee, for transparency’s sake) Idris O’Neill is here to contribute to the actually insane amount of Milstein content on Bwog. It’s time to explore all the centers for learning that you’ve been missing out on.
Happening in the World: The Canadian diplomats to Cuba are suing the Canadian government for their inaction over an apparent epidemic known as Havana Syndrome.

The real question is: would you rather a vacation with Havana Syndrome or an […]
In Social Media Editor Idris O’Neill’s utopia, Barnard’s dining points and Columbia’s dining dollars would be equal and Joe Coffee would accept said forms of currency.

Colloquially referred to as the “Barnard Gardening Club,” officially recognized as nothing, but personally called the “Barnard Community Garden,” this unofficial club at Barnard has made a lot of change considering its (lack of) status. Bwog sat down with the visionaries behind the Barnard Community Garden and talked about sending an inordinate amount of e-mails […]
