The nationwide Sunrise Movement, which has organized scores of young people into taking action and demanding legislation to fight climate change, is encouraging Columbia students and faculty to strike tomorrow to show their support for
John Henry Coatsworth, the Provost of Columbia University, will resign from his position on June 30, 2019, according to an email sent out by University President Lee Bollinger early this morning.
According to West Side Rag, Deluxe has closed for good. Its furniture was sold in an auction on Tuesday, and the phone rang off the hook when we tried to call today. The 113th St. diner’s closure comes nine months after it briefly shut down in December 2015 before re-opening a few days later due […]
If you haven’t already realized (and if you haven’t…did you get lost in your copy of Infinite Jest? Are you putting in too many hours at your JP Morgan summer internship?), it’s July! Before you drink yourself into a coma this holiday weekend (please don’t…ugh…you don’t live in Carman anymore), try to clear your head of […]
Some lazy student must have been praying to the Chipotle Gods (or goddesses–we see you, DSpar) because the popular chain located on 111th St. and Broadway will deliver to Columbia dorms starting this fall. In order to get your fav Chipotle order delivered, you must use the app called Tapingo. You’ll be able to place your […]
With three(ish) weeks to go before Halloween, Morningside is getting a little spooktacular. For your viewing pleasure, we’ve compiled some pretty mediocre pictures of our favorite decorations around Columbia. Just look at how spooky Book Culture’s pumpkins are! And John Jay’s bowl of leaves! Because nothing is scarier than going to get goldfish and realizing that they’ve […]
Since Friday, we’ve been flooded with suggestions about what to name the newest addition to our Columbia family. After all, in a world filled with MoHi and Prezbo, a name like Bernheim & Schwartz doesn’t exactly roll of the tongue. We extend claps, emoji stars, and bittersweet participation trophies to everyone who submitted names to us — the competition was steep […]
Havana Central, rest in peace. The West End, rest in peace. Bernheim and Schwartz, the new restaurant and beer hall opening up on Broadway looks almost done from the exterior; it has new sidewalk, a new sign, and has started to enclose its outdoor seating area. The restaurant is hiring, which is good because we […]
While pirating scanning a book, Bwog noticed that Butler 213 is getting a color printer this year! No more walking down to the 2nd floor of Mudd just to be ripped off for color printing, or waking up your floor mate at 2 am to save some money. The print station has apparently been there since […]
It’s about time that one of Columbia’s ugliest buildings had some work done on its exterior. According to a cedilla-containing email sent to Carman residents: Please be advised that, beginning tomorrow, Wednesday, February 12th [sic], an overhead structure will be put up over the entrance to Carman Hall. This is in preparation for work that will […]
According to the Spectator, the swanky new tables (which, according to rumors Bwog’s friends have heard, is supposed to promote community at Columbia) in Ferris are not the only changes coming to the dining hall. Spec reports that, a year following the renovations to John Jay, Ferris may be getting a new serving area and (wait for it) […]
Remember the secret of the tent? Looks like there are new signs for Barnard and SEAS, too. Columbia’s cool neon sign via Scarlett Tohme, CC’14.
Big changes going on this season in your favorite neighborhood: from bold new colors to daring new culinary choices to some extreme construction work in Butler, Columbia is a totally different place. Brace yourself for a whole new world below:
Hold on to your hats, kids! Barnard’s got some swanky new carpets. The rugs say the names of the buildings on them (so you don’t get lost, I guess?). The downside? Sources say that some of the carpets are so plush that it’s making it hard to open the doors. Say it with me now: […]
After tripping over construction workers for weeks, Duane Reade is practically done with renovations. Bwog sent our Decoration Diva Angel Jiang to check it out, in honor of the five-aisled edifice to self-improvement. The first thing to note about Duane Reade’s renovation is that the entrance, formerly in correspondence to the stairs to the lower level, is […]
Much to the horror of Columbia students and Morningside residents alike, Absolute Bagels and m2m were both recently shut down by the Health Department. (How could something so delicious be so unsanitary! They’re boiled!) It didn’t take long for things to get back to normal though. Both Absolute and m2m are back up and running! […]
