Arts Editor Maya Campbell interviews and sees the work of Extra Credit Ensemble, a theatre group led by two current Columbia students, in a special PeopleHop/Arts Review combo post.
Public Safety stan Lili Brown takes us behind the scenes of staying alert and aware in the most crime-ridden location (?) on campus: Butler Library. Our beloved Butler, with its prestigious architecture of dignified columns and oversized Hogwarts lanterns at the entrance, is a place fraught with robbery–or so the vigilantes behind these popular green […]
Bwogline: A federal judge ruled that the NSA’s metadata collection violates the Fourth Amendment. Finals tip: Ask a more devoted student in your class that you sort of know to borrow her notes. Procrastinate: Engage in serious intellectual discourse, for a change. Overseen:
Have you been spending absurd chunks of time hiding out in Butler and leaving your papers strategically scattered when you take a lunch break? Feeling guilty? Don’t! Camping Connoisseur Katherine Nevitt is here to defend you. We’ve all complained about the impropriety of pitching tent in Butler. And yet at the same time, we’ve all been Milstein […]
Update, 12:48 am: And apparently all of you in Butler are busy procrastinating by confessing your crushes on this Tumblr… Finals cometh and with that Butler is completely full. After doing the rounds for a half hour, Bwog has determined that, as oft happens this magical time of year, there are no more open seats. Go […]
Claiming seats in Butler is less of a science, and more of an art. There are techniques that work for some locations, but fail in others. This evening, Senior Butler Analyst Alex Jones spotted the stakeout below and uses it to illustrate one of the many finer points of Butler camping: item usage. There are […]
Bwog has seen Butler camping and even orated on its behalf. But if you’re in CC or SEAS, today you received an email from your senators which may threaten that sacred masochistic rite. Amidst standard student government “we want to hear what you want” business-as-usual, Bwog found this bit: Libraries and Technology – Contact: Kenny […]
Forty-eight straight hours in Butler is an unusual path to martyrdom. It’s autumn in Morningside Heights, and we’re evidently more hungry than genuinely wistful. Yoga has always been a scene, but now it’s official. DJ Earworm talks business; he’s actually quite articulate. Midwesterners are quaint.
Photo via Bwog! In case you couldn’t tell from the joyful cries of sexiled 2013s, the good news from Butler keeps rolling in. Bwog’s star student Liz Naiden reports (with glee) that the Reference Room and the Catalogue Room, as well as “all the other reading rooms on the third floor,” are now open […]
Bwog’s received the following photos of students who’ve “camped out in the boardrooms on the 5th floor of Lerner for days on end.” These people, who apparently moonlight as Red Bull company employees, believe that their misery rivals that of their Butler-bound peers. If you think your study space is better/worse, send us the photos […]
Bwog took a stroll around Butler this fine Sunday evening, for such is our time-honored tradition. What we saw is a haunting portrait of the terrible side-effects of caffeine and what must be at least half of Starbucks’ yearly revenue. We also observed the masses try to escape their madness: literally, below, and figuratively, at […]
