Barnard Keeps It Beautiful

If you need a little confidence boost in this tough midterm season, Barnard offers a mantra that can’t be repeated enough: “don’t forget you are beautiful!” This banner in a Sulzberger Hall elevator wants you to know that even though you haven’t showered in a week, you’re wearing the sweatshirt you found on the floor […]

Housing: It Lies

That snickering you hear coming out of 125 Wallach is the Housing Office enjoying its latest joke. You may think room registration for next year ends tomorrow at 5:00, since that’s what it says on the calendar, but that’s only for the lonely. If you’re entering as a group, your deadline is 5:00 today 11:00 […]

Hey, Where’d My Signal Go?

As Columbia enters the last few days of the “midterm period,” bunkering down in Butler may look more and more enticing. But, to help you hang on to that precious wireless signal, Bwog spent Monday night in the Milstein and Reference Rooms measuring signal strength. The key corresponds to the average readout out of four bars on a […]

Milano: Buy Ten, Get The Eleventh At Regular Price

A concerned discount fancier has informed Bwog that Milano Market, Broadway’s finest supplier of Italian cheeses and window bread porn, is no longer offering buy-ten-get-one-free cards. Apparently it was a managerial decision, one that Hamilton Deli will hopefully never ever ever make. But don’t think of it as all bad. Yes, you’re losing a free […]

NotQuickSpec: The Rest Of The City Doesn’t Have Midterms Edition

The Spectator is on a midterm schedule this week, which means Columbia’s favorite daily is temporarily an every-other-daily. Have no fear-New York’s other publications are still going strong. The Times grapples with our jigsaw puzzle of a budget while crushing on Shakespeare the pinup. Citing the rising costs of both jet fuel and hamburger buns, […]

Procrastination with Glowsticks and Free Food

Those needing an escape tonight from the hellish hours of studying that await them tonight, tomorrow, the next day, and everyday after that until somehow spring break arrives, are in luck. Tonight, there will be free glowsticks, hot cider and, um, information about the CU Relay for Life, coming up on April 4th. There’s also […]

AskBwog: Where Do the Peacocks Go in Winter?

Remember when you were in eighth grade and you were forced to read The Catcher in the Rye? Remember when Holden asks that taxi driver where all the ducks in Central Park go in the winter? Remember how you thought that was somehow a metaphor for imminent escape from your acne-ridden 13-year-old existence? Yeah, we […]

Programming Fiends, Prepare!

 -xkcd Just a heads-up that a mere five days after you return from spring break, programming god Larry Wall will be giving a talk on “The Art of Ballistic Programming.” The Columbia University Association for Computing Machinery (CU ACM) is pretty stoked on this one, and you should be too. Wall created the Perl programming […]

Columbia Grad Does Okay For Himself

This weekend, the Times‘ ever-informative City Room Blog posted the answers to a street identification quiz they created to separate the true New Yorkers from the Long Islanders: the challenge was identify the origins of 20 NYC street names.  Clue #7 struck our fancy: we pondered an image of a dapper young man in judge’s […]

Bubble Tea In Transition

Bwog got a tip yesterday that Vine, Swish‘s identical twin replacement, lacks the one thing that everyone seemed to like about Swish, may it rest in peace: bubble tea. Fortunately, as our tipster mentioned, 116th Street’s bubble tea franchise is not gone forever, but merely transported two doors down to Ollie’s. The bubble tea stand […]
