With the end of, hopefully, our last online semester comes another edition of Bwog Staff’s favorite running series. Read up on the music that defined our semester while getting vaccinated and practicing social distancing!
This past year has been nothing short of a disaster for many people, but working, learning, and socializing through our computer screens has produced a few silver linings that we’d want to stick around.
A noose was found at the Union Theological Seminary on Wednesday afternoon in an incident currently being investigated by the NYPD as a hate crime.
Bwog can somehow explain the past 22 days of housing, but the mystery behind the resurrecting 6-person Plimpton suite will remain unsolved.
Rambunctious newsletter editor Zoe Sottile is just like you: scared to walk into John Jay alone. We’ve all been there. You’re hungry. You’re craving a nice John Jay sushi roll, or maybe some of the miscellaneous pastes from the vegan station smeared on white bread. You text a friend to ask if they want to […]
Bwog’s token SEAS kid Kevin Chen reviews Columbia Dining’s latest online initiative: the Dine@CU iPhone app. On Monday, Dining released the Dine@CU iPhone app, which gives menus for each dining hall and general dining news. Built by Gilbert Feig, SEAS ’15, the app is an improvement over the Columbia Dining mobile site. When you open the […]
Do you think it’s uncomfortably warm in the serving area of John Jay, and can’t wait to escape to your (slightly) cooler table? Well, that “uncomfortably warm” is about 1,000 degrees hotter in the actual kitchens, where Dining workers make your food in Saharan conditions. SWS has been pushing for reforms in the kitchens on behalf […]
Student-Worker Solidarity is on another campaign—last year it was Faculty House, and now it’s working conditions in John Jay dining hall. According to SWS’s release, they delivered a petition (circulated as a Google) to dining director Vicki Dunn. It called for “proper ventilation and AC” in the dining hall. Dunn “claimed that these changes would […]
Be on the lookout for the February issue of The Blue & White, on campus now! Bwog will again honor our heritage/amorous affair with our mother magazine by posting features from the upcoming issue. Such treats include the first part of a discussion on the Columbia School, an investigation into Columbia’s animal testing practices, and a talk about, […]
First everyone’s favorite sandwich shop is closed for remodeling, and now everyone’s favorite dining hall the place you thought would be like Hogwarts until you tried the food is getting a makeover too. We saw some improvements on John Jay at the beginning of last semester, but it would appear that big changes are still to come. […]
Though changes in Dining aren’t as drastic as last year’s, some business is going on, and we think there are some bits in here you’ll like. JJ will offer new items such as “sandwiches and sliders at the Pizza Station, and new specialty burger and sandwich options at the grill.” JJ’s Place will have expanded hours […]
Because of the snow, Dining has confirmed that a couple changes in the normal dining facility schedules will occur today. Take note: Ferris Booth is closed The cafe on the ground floor of Dodge is closed (though we only went there for James Franco sightings, anyway!) Cafe 212 is open The cafe in Butler is […]
The ESC also met Monday night. Bwog’s Sean Zimmermann was there. The council spent most of the time before the election discussing the current dining survey, and the results so far. Common student complaints on the survey included the extensive crowding of Ferris, especially on the weekends, the lack of takeout in JJs, and confusion […]
Bwog clicks its heels in the air with joy for the ability to use credit/debit at campus dining locations. Confirmed at Ferris Booth and John Jay, rumored at Carlton Lounge… we suspect there may be more. Swipe your parents’ money hearts away!
Though we probably can’t see as many free exhibits nowadays, at least we’ll be able to drink our underage art-deprived sorrows away. The CU Arts’ latest initiative, CUlinary Arts, now gives Columbia students special deals at restaurants around the city – 12 out of 32 of which involve free alcohol, mostly in the form of […]
A couple of months ago, Dean Dorothy Denburg proudly announced that Barnard was to open a new café. “Liz’s Place,” as this café called itself, was to be a “wonderful resource” and “an expanded and improved-upon replacement for Java City” – presumably so flowing with mouth-watering snacktime treats that all mandatory meal-plan haters (read: everyone […]
If you had a craving for a freshly-made salad or sandwich from Café 212 this weekend, you probably found yourself out of luck. Indeed, in a move that disappoints many, Dining Services recently made the decision to stop its salad and sandwich services on the weekends. According to Director of Dining Vicki Dunn, the café […]
Katharine Abrams, Bwog’s culinary expert, reports Still dreaming of butternut squash soup and sage ravioli, I hope to soon see Community Food and Juice without brown paper lining its windows. However, Community’s indefinite close does have its advantages, namely forcing me to explore other dining options near campus. In its wake, Pio Pio, a Peruvian rotisserie […]
Dining would like to remind you that the heady days of freshmen’s Columbia Points are no more. This year, the points were abolished in favor of Dining Dollars for all. Really! The dining website says so. Besides having a marginally less embarrassing name, the only advantage of Dining Dollars is that they don’t expire at […]
