Last night, the Barnard/Columbia chapter of Design for America held their spring semester introductory meeting in Room 504 of Diana.

Whichever defines you, Bwog has a novel answer: become a PART of The Gadfly, a.k.a., Columbia’s undergraduate Philosophy journal, thanks to its recent revamp.

When two friends of Managing Editor Betsy Ladyzhets told her they were starting a book club at Barnard, she was amazed – there are college students who somehow want to do even more reading?

Columbia University French Cultural Society invited us […]
