Barnard College has announced that it will replace the myBarnard Portal with a new, mobile-accessible server: Barnard Portal. Barnard Portal will launch on Monday, July 26.
Kale and lettuce plants have disappeared from the Barnard Community Garden, according to an Instagram story from the Barnard Garden Club.
Administrators and public health experts projected confidence and optimism for Columbia’s return to campus this fall in the most recent University Life Forum.
We are almost halfway through the summer and some of you might be saying AHHHH. We here at Bwog have been keeping ourselves busy (or not). Here’s to hoping the semester does not start up
Several teams, including Columbia Football, have posted their game schedules for the 2021 season, confirming that the Lions are ready to jump back into intercollegiate competition after being on hold due to the pandemic.
Once in a rare while, the sun decides to visit Columbia’s campus. This sends students into a frenzy; the lawns become packed, and most people (emphasis on most) leave Butler to partake in yard games and tan. The weather, while temporary, transforms campus into a much happier, vibrant place…but this version of Columbia only lasts […]
Well, easy come easy go. With just one day left before the end of the semester, the tarp-less streak has come to an end as the South Lawn waved the white flag of surrender. Before we could get a response from Facilities regarding their absence, several tipsters informed us that the tarps were brought out […]
On this eerily warm, moist afternoon, if South Field has ever gone the entire first semester without being covered by ghastly (ghostly?) white tarps? Bwog has actually reached out to Facilities to ask this question, and will update with the answer. The weather this semester has been awfully strange. Today’s tropical jungle climate certainly doesn’t […]
Make your way over to the Sundial, folks, College Days is back! What’s that, you ask? College Days… that time when we pretend we have school spirit they try to trick the prospies into believing we have school spirit (one of their many ruses including a magical weather machine that mysteriously turns the temperature up […]
It’s Friday! Need even more incentive to blow off working ahead on that big paper? One of the Butler lawns is open! Quick, before the sun sets! Then again, temperatures are supposed to be in the 80s until Tuesday, so you’ve got plenty of time to enjoy the heat. – Photo by JCD
How else to explain the forty degree swing in five days? Yes, Bwog’s weather meter currently reads 67 degrees out. But without much sun, the steps are sadly somewhat less than crowded. If you’re still wavering on whether to venture out, just remember: it’s back into the 40s after Sunday. – JCD
Photo by Kate Linthicum March is coming in like a Columbia lion, says Bwog’s personal meteorologist, albeit more like a Lion that actually wins once in a while. Those sad suits at local TV stations are predicting one last whopper of a snowstorm for us in Manhattan. 8-12 inches of snow by 6:00 PM tomorrow, […]
Good afternoon! My, it is raining quite consistently today. So, we’re inviting all amateur photographers, no matter just how amateur, to take some photos of the weather and its effects. Send us pictures of puddles, colorful umbrellas, children in galoshes (especially children in galoshes), etc. and we’ll add them to this post. Hawk photos […]
As the school year comes to a close, free time, along with Bwog’s Guide to the Weekend, makes a triumphant return. We’ll continue keeping you updated every Thursday throughout the summer about concerts, movies, special events, and lectures. All Weekend/Continuing: The Films of Kenji Mizoguchi IFC Center Friday-Sunday; 11 AM $11.50 Heavy Light: Recent Photography […]
Things are looking up! The treachery of finals week is drawing to a closeâ€”despite some Butler settlements indicating the contrary. Plus, tipster Keith Leung just emailed to let us know that Haagen Dasz is giving away free scoops of their new ice-cream flavor (Vanilla Honey Bee) from now until 8 PM. Leung has also assuaged […]
Tipster/photographer Jason Patinkin just sent the following photos Bwog’s way. “Well bwog, I hope you enjoyed the last week of sitting on the steps, because once again Columbia taketh our favorite midday hangout. Indeed the construction of wooden posts and metal bleachers across the steps begins today (or maybe yesterday),” he writes. It’s that time […]
If you’re not at the WBAR-B-Q right now, you’re missing seeing… approximately thirty thousand bands. While Bwog was only able to get out there briefly and is now safely locked up in class, there’s no excuse for you not being there. It’s free! (Except the food.) Now playing: Wizards of the Coast, featuring Bwog’s own […]
The young at heart (and the fearless of motion-sickness) take note: There are currently two moon-bounces—one features two basketball hoops and basketballs for competitive gamesmanship—stationed on Low. (There is also a dunking tank for the masochistic.) The Anti-Iraq War Demonstration Bell is still ringing strong, though its sounds are slightly muffled by the screams of […]
