SGA meets at 8 pm every Monday in Diana 2! Last night, to improve the sleep quality of meeting attendees who are in the middle of pre-break midterm season, SGA met in the cozy and dimly lit Altschul Atrium instead. Bureau Chief Leena Chen managed to stay awake long enough to report on the event.
This Saturday, Bwog staffer Maya Corral attended Revolt. She Said. Revolt Again., an exploration of Alice Birch’s graphic and shocking interpretation of violence against women. This play, directed by Colette Robert, is not for the faint of heart.

As I entered Barnard’s Sulzberger Parlor I had three consecutive thoughts: this room is pretty, I’m tired, and I look and feel like a drowned rat. Underneath all this, I was excited, I love poetry, but it was a dismal Thursday night, I’d had classes all day, and there are midterms that I still have […]
Didn’t catch last nights meeting of Barnard’s SGA Rep Council? Probably a good call–you have midterms to study for and you, fastidious reader of Bwog, know that these meetings are generally sincere yet boringly bureaucratic at their best and complete displays of incompetency at their worst. That didn’t stop Barnard Bureau Chief Dassi Karp from […]
On May 3, in the Barnard administration’s annual “tuition and fees” update email, COO Robert Goldberg and (soon-to-be-departing) Dean of the College Avis Hinkson informed students that there would be “several important changes” to Barnard’s meal plan. These changes, the email read, “resulted from discussions with students” and were purportedly intended to “address the issue […]

Like spotting a gazelle on the plains of Africa, one Bwogger recently ran into former Barnard President Deborah Spar. And now, the moment it happened in breathtaking detail. At a recent engagement, I had the pleasure of running into DSpar, a figure as pivotal to Barnard’s history as the late magnolia tree. As she strutted […]
Barnard’s Convocation of the 2017-2018 school year took place yesterday afternoon, in Riverside Church. Normally Bwog wouldn’t cover this annual ceremony, but this year, it was touted particularly highly as the first time President Sian Beilock would address the student body, so we sent new writer Ramisa Murshed, BC ‘21, to the event, along with […]
