New York City is packed with amazing culture and inspiring art, but sometimes it’s difficult to break the Morningside-bubble and experience it all first-hand. “Where Art Thou” is a weekly guide to interesting and notable
Bwogger Jordan Merrill ventures deep into the fiery pits of the 116 St. subway station to sit down with the famous subway rat affectionately known as Rat. My palms are sweating, a sure and obvious
Bwogger Zach Fisher details his first hand experience of studying on an incline in Lerner, and discusses his confusion at how students can productively study there.
While 2017 has unofficially been dragging us through the earth for the past four months, we have yet to truly be roasted. That all changes tonight—Orgo Night is finally here! Bring some water and aloe vera to Butler 209 outside of Butler, and apply to burns as needed. See you there! Orgo Night Spring 2017 […]
Bwog is back with another installment of Library Reviews! Today, we take a look at a classic: Butler 209. Whether 209 is your go-to spot (*ahem* like me) or simply a relic of Orgo Nights past, join us on a journey through this age-old Butler classic. Location: Butler Library, Room 209. Enter Butler and turn either […]
The second (and more controversial) round of Orgo Night posters have hit Butler bulletin boards (you can look at the first round of posters here). As one would expect, the posters contain Donald Trump jokes (Is he still funny? The world seems undecided), a play on Hotline Bling’s album art, and yet another reference to […]

This week, sometimes studier Alexandra Avvocato puts her books aside to defend that most notorious of reading rooms: Butler 209. As a freshman, I avoided Butler 209 like the plague.

Same Band time, same Band place: Butler 209, 11:59- but get there early, it gets crowded quickly and you might get locked out. Laugh at Columbia, sing “Roar, Lion, Roar,” and resume your studies. Send video, […]
Leo Gertsenshteyn reports: A man in a banana costume just ran screaming through 209 Butler. Luckily, it has promptly returned to being an uneventful night of studying and NSA sex in the stacks. And overheard in Butler Cafe: Girl: Oh guess what! I’m soooo excited! I got my books on Mesopotamia today! Guy: Oh, cool. […]
It’s been a rough week in Butler Library. Many of you, despite the librarians’ poster campaign, have been living at your desks, hemmed in by stacks of books and empty Red Bull cans, sustained only by sesame mix and bad pastries from Blue Java. The garbage cans mount up to the ceiling, and your sweat […]
Gautam Hans The scent of anxiety oozing from Butler dissipated for about 30 minutes as the Columbia University Marching Band carried out its annual tradition of making chem majors’ lives miserable. Even though most of the orgo exams are next week. This semester, the band largely avoided campus personalities, but hit SHOCC, PrezBo, PrezBush, the […]
