Unsure of where to start when looking for classes? Debating on whether or not you actually want to follow through on your original plan for a major? Bwog’s here to help! Ah, yes…the Black Friday
At 5 pm on July 27, Executive Vice President of Arts & Science and Dean of the Faculty Amy Hungerford sent an email to graduate students and faculty instructors encouraging them to teach more classes
Staff Writer Julia Tolda bases this assessment on the two most important questions asked in every ice-breaker (in no particular order): “What’s your zodiac sign?” and “Who did you write about in your application?.”
Ferris Booth is not usually a place of productivity. A crowded feeding trough for busy students, it becomes even more of a pressure-cooker area during midterms. Everyone’s in a rush to get into the pasta line, then everyone’s hurrying to grab the silverware before it runs out, and then comes the mad dash for a […]
We have all noticed Ferris’s inconsistent music patterns—from soul-soothing piano acoustics to baby-making R&B, you have spent countless hours in the pasta line thinking, “how the hell did they come up with the playlist today?” Wonder no more. Sandy, the Ferris kitchen manager, has recently revealed the mysterious DJ’s identity to me in a short […]
According to the Spectator, the swanky new tables (which, according to rumors Bwog’s friends have heard, is supposed to promote community at Columbia) in Ferris are not the only changes coming to the dining hall. Spec reports that, a year following the renovations to John Jay, Ferris may be getting a new serving area and (wait for it) […]
Ferris has made some upgrades over break and they are literally life-changing. No, not the staircase. They’ve given us some swanky new tables and room to breathe by adding new bar areas. So now, on your way to get more triangle hash browns, you’ll only crash into four people and knock over two bags. The downside? If you […]
There is always room for change around Morningside Heights. Bwog would like to gently point out these updates in the midst of the hustle and bustle of Columbia life. For better or for worse, several venues have led the charge with a new coat of paint or a newfound stingy sign. It’s about the little things […]
Though it’s embarrassing to admit it any time after NSOP, we all miss Sex and the City from time to time. A lucky tipster got to relive a little bit of it in Ferris yesterday when he unwittingly sat next to two Samanthas: Girl 1: Ew, he’s like 28! Girl 2: No, he’s 26. Girl […]
Sorry, guys. Update, 2:15pm: They’re open again!
Columbia’s ivory tower does not exist in a vacuum after all! A hard freeze in Mexico, which forced Wendy’s to offer tomatoes by request only, has struck our very own Ferris Booth. Ferris will not serve tomatoes “until further notice.” However, it’s not all bad—the tomato shortage is probably good for tomato farmers demanding one more […]
Things spotted by Bwog this week that were less dull, and more sparkly, in all sorts of ways: The bookstore is now totally stocked for holiday shopping…but more importantly there are hats with rhinestones! Thank god for Collegiate Fashionista! Holiday lights at Westside New light outside Greenborough New signs at Ferris Booth proclaim the glory […]
Grant D’Avino reports! Last night’s CCSC meeting opened with introductions, as it was the first meeting that included representatives and officers from the class of 2014. Along with his or her name and position in CCSC, each person was asked to share an adjective that described him or herself at the present. Bwog’s favorites, in […]
The Health Department is, as of this summer, requiring that every restaurant in New York display the letter grades they most recently received for cleanliness. This is a nightmare for everyone; it’s rare that any restaurant will sneak away with no health violations. The grades will be assigned during the next year, when the Health […]
The Study Day-Standoff: Last night’s CCSC meeting saw unanimous passage of a proposal to start the academic year a week earlier when Labor Day falls on September 5th or later. The passage was the first step by the councils towards forming a united undergraduate front in advance of Friday’s University Senate Plenary, in the face […]
