Bwoglines: Lemonade Stand Edition

Any attempts at getting work done are again wrecked by another notable album release. Drake released his fourth studio album, Views, on Apple Music, yet again leaving us in our feelings for the weekend. (Billboard) Loose alpaca in Massachusetts has been captured, still no word on who owns it. Construction workers cleaning pipes in Spain accidentally discover […]

Don’t look… campus is “indisposed.”

While most Columbians vegetate in flyover states or work long hours in the beige halls of finance, Columbia prepares herself for the Fall 2012 and the arrival of the class of 2016. (We see you!) Like the MTA’s, Columbia’s renovations are a patchwork of quick-fixes intended to squeeze a little more life out of really […]

The New Science Building Has a Door

A beautiful butterfly is emerging from its cocoon before our eyes! The not-so-cleverly-conceived and evidently donor-deficient Northwest Corner Building’s entryway can now be seen behind a white picket fence stretching across the plaza—look, it’s suburbia! In the city! Photos by CCS

Barnard’s brand new student center, the Vagelos Center aka the Diana aka the Nexus aka the Vag, is open and ready for business as of yesterday. Hey, ‘Vag’ sounds like ‘vagina’. Weird!

Wien Not Breathing Easy

  Photo by ESN Bwog’s Airborne Contaminants Team has finally confirmed, after days of close analysis, that the sign posted on the Wien bulletin board earlier this week does indeed contain the word “asbestos.” We’re all gonna die!

The Vag: Delays and Hurrays

Earlier this morning, Barnard students received a message from outgoing President Judith Shapiro informing them that their would-be Vag will not be completed by its scheduled Fall 2009 date — something about subcontracting gone awry — but will instead open in January 2010.  But there are silver linings abounds: Starting this fall Lewis Parlor will […]

Of Human Bondage: What’s in a Name?

The naming of buildings at Columbia has always been a project undertaken with the greatest care. Indeed, the majority of buildings on campus carry the names of prominent alumni who have contributed much to the university and to society at large.

Updates in the coffeeshop world

It appears that Morningside Heights coffeeshops took winter break as an opportunity to shake things up.  In the case of Saurin Park Café, a coffee and sandwich shop with free wireless located on the corner of 110th and Frederick Douglass Blvd, the cafe’s ownership has changed.  It’s now called Cafe Amrita and is owned by […]

Hamilton 7 to be used in upcoming “Saw” sequel

Bwog thought the seventh floor of Hamilton was kinda just fine the way it was. The Hamilton elevator not so much. But hey, what the hell d o we know?

College walk temporarily replaced with shallow ditch

“Sweet shit!” Bwog thought as it considered the network of temporary fencing cris-crossing College Walk. “They’re filming a sequel to ‘The Siege’ right here at Columbia!” But a quick glance behind the fences–as well as the ominous absence of Bruce Willis and Denzel Washington–revealed that the university is undertaking a long-overdue renovation of its main […]

Don’t sit on that bench!
