Bwog’s ever faithful Barnard Bearoness, Raji Ganapathy, watched in (figurative) tears as SGA happenings drew to a close this year. But in a final meeting which seemed to sum up the tropes of this year’s SGA, a guest speaker was heard, questions asked, and resolutions pushed out of SGA’s “normal” meeting. As classes draw to […]
Two weeks ago, hopeful candidates fought it out for a coveted position on Barnard’s SGA. This week, staff writer Raji Ganapathy sat down with the newly elected SGA President for 2016-2017, Sara Heiny, to hear about her plans for next year. Read on to hear what’s in store. Bwog: Tell us a little bit about yourself, […]
Robert Goldberg has a lot to say—even when he isn’t asked much. His answers to questions regarding Barnard and its future dominated last night, as captured by Barnard Bearoness Raji Ganapathy. Will Barnard divest? From Columbia? Who knows? Not us. We started the penultimate SGA meeting of this year with a presentation by administrative guest […]
For the first time in a while, SGA had lots of substantive and contentious debate. Well, maybe not SUPER contentious, but better than usual. SGA Correspondent Raji Ganapathy reports on the resolutions and suggestions made by SGA yesterday. This week SGA clustered around a different square table than usual, on the first floor of Elliott Hall, […]
Did SGA do anything this week? Yes! SGA Bureau Chief Raji Ganapathy reports on Barnard’s new course registration software as well as the last constitutional review session of the year. Fun stuff. On the list of things to be fixed about Barnard, course registration is near the top. That’s why at SGA’s meeting last night, […]
In this week’s update on the actions of Barnard’s SGA, Student Government Extraordinaire Raji Ganapathy tells us just what SGA got up to. Well, more so that they’re currently discussing the terms of what they want to debate to actually do. In other words, SGA didn’t do much…again. But they did learn some cool stuff! Last night’s SGA meeting featured an appearance […]
SGA continues its Byzantine processes this week for, well, just about everything. Luckily, as Barnard Bearoness Raji Ganapathy reports, SGA actually underspent their budget and received a more or less neutral response towards Orgo Night. That’s a victory in our books. This week SGA kicked things off with a brief but necessary conversation with Dr. […]
On this Super Tuesday we look at our own elected student governments to figure out what, if anything, they are actually doing. In SGA this week, for example, Raji Ganapathy reports on the conversation between SGA and Barnard’s Dean Hinkson. SGA’s meeting this week was dedicated to holding a formalized conversation with administrative special guest, Dean […]
French spiritualists? Neurology? Indian food? Honestly, what could be better? But, more importantly, what do any of these things have in common? Columbia hosted Larry S. McGrath last night to speak about the “the persistence of spirit within the experimental, quantitative, and pathological methods that lie at the origins of the modern neurosciences.” Bwog sent Staff Writers Raji […]
These updates to the goings-ons of Barnard’s SGA is brought to you by Barnard Bearoness Raji Ganapathy. Whereas SGA sometimes does much and sometimes does little, we will always have consistent coverage of it. In stark contrast from last week, SGA’s meeting last night was jam-packed with things you’d probably want to know! This week […]
This update on the actions and elections of the SGA are brought to you by Barnard Baroness Raji Ganapathy as well as the Super PAC Bwog™, “fighting for better news since 2006”. This week’s SGA meeting was decidedly election-themed. We kicked things off with a presentation by the Columbia Elections Board. The CEB is an independent […]
A pretty daunting (and equivocal) title, eh? Strange titles don’t intimidate us! Last night we sent new staffer Raji Ganapathy all the way to Knox Hall to check out this art talk co-sponsored by the Columbia Center for Oral History Research and the Oral History Master of Arts Program. Here are her thoughts. As I […]
