As many of you are aware—or, you know, not at all aware—on Thursday Deborah Spar will be inaugurated as President of Barnard. Hooray! This is an exciting thing! But did you know that in response to the Big Inauguration, Barnard is shutting down completely? It’s true! Afternoon classes on Thursday at Barnard have been canceled. […]
At approximately 7:05 PM, just five minutes after the scheduled start of Barnard’s annual free sub giveaway, the sandwich was completely gone. What lay in its wake were scattered martini glasses filled with beaded necklaces and troupes of inordinately disappointed sub-seekers. “I just got here and all the sandwich is gone!” bemoaned one, to no […]
Barnard is a “flower garden of women.” Barnard is the former home of the star of Even Stevens who is not Shia LeBeouf. Relive all of Friday’s exciting NROTC details. The 12s are this much closer to CCSC and this much closer to having the power to make decisions that might, in some capacity, affect […]
A tipster reported that right now at the Barnard’s Activities Fair, amidst clubs and I HEART BC shirts galore, cotton candy is being given out to strong, beautiful women (and probably strong, hungry men.) It only lasts until 3pm, so hurry up and get your spun-sugar treats.
Two Columbia-related articles of interest in the New York Times recently: First up, an op-ed from physics professor/Colbert Report interviewee Brian Greene sent to Bwog from tipster Lucy Tang. In a piece currently #1 on the Times‘ Most Emailed list, Greene recounts receiving from a letter from a soldier stationed overseas from whom Greene’s book […]
It’s not only seniors who are receiving diplomas this week, outgoing President and Varsity Show protagonist Judith Shapiro (pictured with her signature sass at right), will be receiving an honorary Columbia University Doctor of Laws degree, presented to her tomorrow by none other than PrezBo. In a press release, PrezBo commends JShap on doubling BC’s […]
Barnard is celebrating Cinco de Mayo with a traditional free-pancake offering at 10 PM tonight in 406 Barnard Hall. Perhaps it’s a taste (pun) of what’s in store for this year’s Midnight Breakfast. Yesterday, readers were apparently disappointed with the quality of CCSC’s light-blue cookies cupcakes. “Tiny and stale,” you cried in comments of rage. […]
This year Barnard’s Class Day speakers will include New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, New Yorker editor David Remnick, famed tennis player Billie Jean King, and organizer of Harlem Head Start programs Thelma C.

Tucked away in Lewis Parlor in the Barnard Quad is a very special kind of celebration. The kind that happens every four years. To celebrate 2008’s leap year status, McAc Events—which in four years can hopefully be called LexisNexUS—is sponsoring a leap year cupcake decoration snacktime extravaganza, or something. The cupcakes are stacked high on […]

Anonymous passerby wants to know why there’s a tent filled with blankets in front of Barnard’s Lehman library. This morning, Bwog inquired about the painted, comforter-filled tent. Three girls manning the table behind the tent explained that the tent was symbolic of a call for discourse about academic issues concerning Barnard to take place on […]
A Barnard source just confirmed the troubling lice epidemic currently plaguing the 8th floor of Sulzberger hall in the Barnard Quad. Apparently, one first-year had lice and the little bugs quickly migrated into the heads of several other first-year students.
