It’s the first Friday of the semester! Take a break from obsessively rearranging your schedule to catch up on global and local news with Bwoglines.
Welcome back from winter break! While the days of relaxing in warm and sunny places or skiing in fresh snow are gone, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy yourself in the city during the winter.
Good morning Columbia! As homework begins to pile up and you realize the semester is actually, really, 100% starting, know that Bwog is here for you when you can’t waste your entire day reading the
Here, Bwog generously provides a closely-held recipe for Russian Tea (which neither comes from Russia nor contains tea), and it’s the perfect Beverage-in-Mug to warm you the hell up.
Now that the final stage is over and most have finally caught their breath, Bwog brings you a recap of just what the hell happened in this year’s 1/2/3 housing lottery.
Five-person groups in Barnard’s housing lottery picked today; we bring you the triumphs and tribulations that resulted. While Columbia sophomores scrounged for suites in the John Jay Lounge, groups of Barnard students picked from the comfort of their own laptops in the 5-person lottery. As we mentioned in our post on the senior lottery and 4-person lottery, […]
While we were thoroughly covering every shout and tear of Columbia in-person housing selection, Barnard students were learning to use a new, entirely online selection system run through the StarRez portal. This system caused an uproar among rising seniors and faced a barrage of questions when it was announced in February, but how did it […]
For transfers and rising sophomores and juniors at Barnard, Elliott Hall is a convenient, if small, dorm located on Claremont. Location: 49 Claremont (corner of 119th) Nearby dorms: The Quad, the 600s Stores and restaurants: Everything in the immediate Columbia/Barnard Broadway area: MoWill, the food trucks, Pret, Shake Shack, Starbucks, Sweetgreen, UPS/FedEx, etc. Cost: Check the Barnard Housing […]
Although Bwog has traditionally covered Columbia Housing in great detail (with up-to-date Google Docs spreadsheets and liveblogs), we’ve never extended similar coverage that system’s somewhat more confusing sister: Barnard Housing. This year, Barnard Housing takes place on three days: rising senior selection is on Friday, March 24, rising junior selection is on Tuesday, March 28, […]
More housing reviews for the Barnard babes! This time it’s Hewitt (the dorm, not the dining hall). Check out this thorough review and get yourself ready for the utter ruthlessness that is room selection. Location: Barnard Quad (3009 Broadway) Nearby dorms: Reid, Brooks, Sulz, Sulz Tower (in the same building); 600, 616, 620, Claremont, etc. (right […]
As we settle into the new year, some of us have upgraded our housing from last year in different ways—including dropping our roommates. However, some people, like myself, have struggled with remembering a key fact: just because you don’t have a roommate doesn’t mean that no one is watching. My new single is so shafted […]
Housing reviews continue today with Sulzberger Tower, which should be of special interest to all Barnard Bears. You might not have The Cage, but surely housing still strikes terror into your very soul. Location: 3009 Broadway (in between 116 and 117 St.) Nearby Dorms: Reid, Brooks, Hewitt (Sulz Tower is part of the quad) Stores […]
Next fall may seem lightyears away, but Barnard Residential Life is here to shorten that distance for you. Today begins the week-long gap to register for Barnard on-campus housing for the next calendar year. Barnard students will have until Monday, March 28 to secure their guaranteed housing this g-around. Students can register on the Res […]
Don’t you worry, Barnard women; we didn’t forget about housing selection for you! Continuing the tradition for the second year in a row, we bring you the reviews for Barnard dorms! We continue with another Barnard dorm whose colloquial title is a mouthful of six’s: 620 West 116th. Location: 620 W 116th St. Nearby dorms: […]
And the Barnard housing review saga continues with the school’s luxurious but far-flung outpost: Cathedral Gardens. Location: 217 Manhattan Avenue, between 110th and 109th Nearby dorms: Um, next question? CG is the farthest dorm from Barnard’s campus, but it’s not actually as far as people imagine. It’s about a 10 minute walk to 110 (the dorm) […]
Housing is upon us. Bwog’s got you covered; we’ll be rolling out two housing reviews per day until no residence hall is left un-reviewed. We now introduce, for the first time in our reviewing history…110! — A Barnard dorm proudly situated far from campus. Location: 601 West 110th St. Nearby dorms: Cathedral Gardens (sort of) Stores and restaurants: Westside, […]
Housing approacheth. And, unless you’re on top of it, it’s probably coming up sooner than you think. Bwog’s got you covered; we’ll be rolling out two housing reviews per day until no residence hall is left un-reviewed. Prepare to get (even more) excited: this year, we’re reviewing Barnard residence halls, too. Reviews for all! Today’s […]
