Eric Grossman explores a hidden nook: the TV Graveyard on 116th. Spooky! Topical! Like any institution, Columbia has no shortage of gritty, dark recesses and maintenance staff (which are not necessarily related) on which to maintain its stately veneer. While some breathe in the light of day, others go unseen to the common eye. So, […]
A Bwog classic, Campus Corners is returning from a two year hiatus — for one day. Here, we bring you some of Columbia’s less crowded study spots, if only to get you to leave Wien’s warm embrace for a couple minutes. Getting into the computer science lounge isn’t easy. Last year, every undergrad was sent […]
With Butler filled to the brim with exam-tide holiday cheer (not to mention unshowered overachievers) you may be seeking an alternative study spot, any study spot, whether on campus…or slightly, vaguely off. With that in mind Bwog follows correspondent Zack Hoopes inside the ghoulish, gothic depths of Burke Library at the Union Theological Seminary… Monday, 9:38 pm I […]

Welcome back to our semi-weekly feature, in which Bwog contributor Mark Krotov takes you to the lesser known gems on our fair campus, forever ruining them for those who didn’t need the hint.

In which Bwog staffer Mark Krotov familiarizes us with the places you can find him when he’s supposed to be in class. I love inhospitable environments. When placed in settings that are unfriendly, unattractive, or simply odd, I find that I enjoy myself a little more than I do in a place that is comfortable […]
In which Bwog staffer Mark Krotov familiarizes us with the places you can find him when he’s supposed to be in class. “We have a geology library? Do we even have a geology department?” Yes. And no. Yes. In some ways, those two questions reveal a lot of what makes the Geology Library wonderful. It […]
In which Bwog staffer Mark Krotov familiarizes us with the places where you can find him when he’s supposed to be in class. On Friday nights, the entrance to East Campus is a stampede of excited drunkards and impatient Barnard girls, all waiting to enter a monolithic structure that is an almost mythical haven for […]
While prettying herself up for her launch party this evening (AT MONA on Amsterdam b/t 108 & 109), the Bwog has been pondering her place in history, especially as it related to the rise and fall of Fascism, which, it turns out, Columbia is not so far removed from. Casa Totalitarina By Jacob Jacobsonian One […]
In which Bwog staffer Mark Krotov familiarizes us with the places where you can find him when he’s supposed to be in class. The first time I came upon the Lehman cubicles, I felt like one of those schoolboys who discovered the Lascaux caves. Although hardly prehistoric in the traditional sense, the Lehman cubicles are […]
