With the end of, hopefully, our last online semester comes another edition of Bwog Staff’s favorite running series. Read up on the music that defined our semester while getting vaccinated and practicing social distancing!
This past year has been nothing short of a disaster for many people, but working, learning, and socializing through our computer screens has produced a few silver linings that we’d want to stick around.
A noose was found at the Union Theological Seminary on Wednesday afternoon in an incident currently being investigated by the NYPD as a hate crime.
Bwog can somehow explain the past 22 days of housing, but the mystery behind the resurrecting 6-person Plimpton suite will remain unsolved.

We continue to respect our heritage/amorous affair with our mother-magazine, The Blue & White by posting each issue of the magazine online. The latest issue, available this week around campus, is a cornucopia of delights: a harrowing (and fictional) account of the muscles that guard the cheeses at Westside , a strikingly beautiful account of […]
Our very own Barnard went viral this week when a student got particularly expressive via a laundry room note to a strong, beautiful peer who stole a pair of SPANX. For those of you who are male or have naturally flat stomachs—note to the latter: we hate you—SPANX are spandex that one may wear underneath clothing […]
For those of you who (a) didn’t know or (b) were all grumpy-dumpy, today is Barnard Spirit Day! Though events have already gotten underway, there’s still fun to be had. Until 4 pm, perky people will serve free ice cream in the 2nd floor dining room of the Diana. And, tonight from 4:30 to 7 pm, […]
We’d like to extend some big fat congratulations to Erin Kara, BC ’11, who has just won the Gates scholarship. The Gates Cambridge Scholarship, funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, offers full rides to non-UK students for graduate work at the University of Cambridge. The scholarship is awarded based on “intellectual ability, leadership capacity […]
Barnard students just received an e-mail announcing the resurrection of Greek Games, one of “its oldest and most beloved traditions.” An contest of “beauty, myth and rhythm” whose events included chariot and torch racing and literary competitions, the Games have not been held since annually since 1968, although they have been sporadically revived a handful […]
Bwog’s Conspicuous Presence of Testosterone Mark Hay crossed the street with his wand last night. Barnard women: President Spar has a problem with you. Or rather, with your sense of identity. As she told her cowed subjects amassed in Sulzberger Parlor for last night’s Fireside Chat, over the last year she was disturbed to hear […]
In our latest installment of “In Defense Of…”, Nikhita Mahtani takes on the haters of The Nexus/Vagelos Center/Diana’s new color scheme. Barnard’s new student center has been in the making for a long time now. Every semester, Barnard students wait for the incessant banging in the Quad to stop and the walkway between Altschul and […]
Barnard cowgirls and uh, cowgirls, will be treated to a host of Wild West-themed free food and fun today, available for whole campus. Today’s Spirit Day includes free Krispy Kreme donuts in all Barnard dorms, followed by the third consecutive day of BBQ in a row at Lehman Lawn. The Nexus will finally be named […]
Yesterday, Barnard admissions email-blasted all 2,389 strong, beautiful women with a request: help convince high school seniors that Morningside Heights is the place to be! Barnard’s luring ladies in with the promise of “a coupon for a free surprise gift” and hoping that they’ll either participate in a phone-a-thon evening or jot down an encouraging […]
Barnard shutterbugs: if you have a good feel for your school’s intrinsic spirit, take some pictures of campus life for the chance to win an iTunes gift certificate and eternal glory. BC’s Admission Office asks that you snap some “candid (real!)” photos of your life at Barnard — just in case you don’t know what […]
Exactly thirty years ago today, November 15, 1978, cultural anthropologist, women’s lib advocate, and Barnard grad, Margaret Mead died. In 1923, a mere 85 years ago, Mead graduated from Barnard with a Bachelor’s Degree in Anthropology and went on to receive a Ph.D from Columbia where she later served as adjunct Professor. Today more than […]
With much pomp and circumstance, Debora L. Spar has been officially crowned Queen of Barnard. Seriously: with this much hoopla, Spar may as well have been garbed in ermine-trimmed gown robes rather than her hot pink academic raiment. But despite the monarchical overtones, and how long it all took, Bwog enjoyed taking in the ceremony […]
The Barnard-Columbia Mystery, solved! Spar’s presidential legacy, seeing as she has not in fact become president, still TBD Bet it won’t include tripling the endowment Barnard women need jobs too! In other news! Books writer comes to terms with her snobbery Columnist comes to terms with his yuppieness
