It is the worst of times, and the most liminal of times. Reading week snuck up on us with a slap and here we are during finals: broken, disheartened, and yearning for summer (why is it still
Staffer Jordan Merrill theorizes/investigates/conspires about the “renovations” in the Carman Hall basement.
Bwogger Abi expresses her love for the Carman service elevator. Dear Carman Service Elevator (or Ellie as I affectionately refer to you in my head), I think you know why I’m writing you this letter. Over the past few weeks I’ve noticed we have been getting closer and closer and I just need to voice […]
Dear whoever you are, I, like many Carmanites, am now awake at 2:30 in the morning on a Tuesday night (or, rather, and Wednesday morning), thanks to you. This is the fourth time such an event has happened in recent nights- Thursday (was it Thursday? It already feels so fucking long ago I can’t even […]
October can’t come soon enough. To get his spook on, senior Bwogger Leo Bevilacqua decided to sort through his love-hate relationship with Ryan Murphy in a productive way. MURDER HOUSE (Carman) – Where the horror begins quite literally. Plus, some unfortunate upperclassmen find themselves trapped in this liminal space for years to come as RA’s. Those […]
In early December, Bwog received a tip, included at the end of the post, that complained of a lack of hot water in Carman’s renovated floors since the beginning of the year. After receiving notification of this concern, Bwog investigated. Since August 2017, several residents of Carman Hall’s newly renovated floors, floors 9 to 13, […]
Students have been hit with a barrage of fire alarms in the past 48 hours: 4 times in EC. 3 times in McBain. Once in Carman. And the JJ’s sprinkler system is malfunctioning. The latest false alarm happened minutes ago in EC. Is the stress of midterms causing people to toke up at 3:30am on a […]
We know you’ve all thought it. Which dorm your current hookup lives in says a lot about his relative sadboy- or fuckboy-ness. Whether he’s a Carman athlete, a Furnald poet, or a Wein loner, the stereotypes hold true more often than not. After all, what’s a stereotype without a little bit of truth? Read on for […]
This weekend was one for the books, friends. Whether you wound up covered in glitter, sweat your ass off at Sig Chi, or just stayed in to avoid the cold, it seems Bwog has covered all the bases. Check out this weekend’s field notes. Beauty is pain: Bruised the bottom of my feet from jumping […]
Thanksgiving has passed, which means it’s time to get in the Holiday state of mind! This special edition of Bwog’s RoomHop features a room open to all, the Carman 7 Lounge. Residents of Carman 7 celebrated the beginning of Christmastime by transforming their lounge into a full out holiday party. The room is complete with […]
And just when you thought Carman could not get more ratchet! Thanks to an anonymous, Columbia Housing might actually clean up this real life haunted house. This is beyond Mr. Clean. Yesterday, Bwog received a tip confirming what we all knew in our first-year hearts to be true anyway: Carman has mold. You can read […]
Hey, prospective students! We’ve given you a hard time these past couple of weeks (with all the crazy shit in your Facebook group, it wasn’t too hard), but to redeem ourselves in your eyes, we’re giving you an inside look of your digs for next year. Don’t worry, you’ll live through this next year. Probably. […]
Ostensibly, Carman has three elevators: two slow people-movers right past the security desk, and one freight elevator, if you’re willing to climb steps and walk through empty, circuitous, vaguely-menacing hallways. Of course, this hasn’t been the reality for the past few days—nearly a week. Instead, there has been only one operational elevator in a building housing […]
In an email sent earlier today, Carman Hall Residence Director Aaron Hukari responded to the ongoing vandalism of a trans awareness bulletin board on floor 13. The email announces a safe space discussion tomorrow in Carman Lounge from 4-6 pm, LGBTQ@Columbia tabling in Carman Lobby, and pending mandatory weekly floor meetings as well as trans/LGBTQ […]
Carman: land of petty elevator disputes, vomit-stained carpets, vandalized bulletin boards, and a deeply-entrenched loneliness matched only by the vast plains of middle America. Behold the beauty and the desolation of the most “social” first-year dorm, established before Carmanites have even taken their first final. And just remember: it honestly never gets any better.
