Already the subject of much controversy regarding its relationship with the Harlem community, Columbia’s Manhattanville campus is once again facing scrutiny, this time from New York City’s Carpenters Union for working with a non-union contractors
A completely understandable snafu in trying to manage the logistics of sending hundreds of students around the world some plastic tubes? Or a coverup?
Bwogline: HQ Trivia and Vine co-founder Colin Kroll, 34, was found dead in his apartment in New York City. The cause of death is assumed to be a drug overdose, although it has not been officially stated as so. Someone please make a vine compilation to celebrate this man. Study Tip: Reach out for help! Don’t be afraid […]
Staff writer Jordan Merrill is angry. I want to make something very clear: I had a M-I-D-T-E-R-M on the last day of classes. It says so right on the syllabus, and it makes me question whether my professor knows what the word “midterm” actually meads. In Latin, “mid” roughly translates to “middle of the” and […]
Bwog continues its fieldwork on overworked and excessively stressed college students, pulling three all-nighters in a row in solidarity. We may be delirious, but surely we can’t be hallucinating all of this. Here’s what this year’s finals have brought us. Strange Encounters of the MoHi Kind “Man crossing 113th alone with both arms raised in the […]
It’s that time of year again: finals are approaching, and high stress levels can be felt all across campus. To combat this, multiple student groups and organizations are putting on study breaks during the next two weeks to prioritize mental health and healthy study habits for undergraduate students. Bwog knows how busy everyone is, so […]
I’ve probably spent more of my life in Blue Java than I have in my own suite kitchen, so I’ve wasted a great deal of time staring at and connecting with the little cards stuck in the pastries. But I assume (hope) most of you guys have lives and haven’t really noticed how ridiculous some of them […]
Bwog continues its library series by exploring the Lehman Social Sciences Library. Located inside the International Affairs Building, this place has everything: printers, desks, and other essentials for last-minute cramming. Leave Butler’s dementors behind and take a chance on one of Columbia’s beautiful libraries! Location: 300 International Affairs Building. IAB is wheelchair accessible, and the […]
Hip hip hooray! While browsing SSOL on a Sunday afternoon, realizing that we’re all f@$!ed because we’ll never get off any of these f%#!ing waitlists, Bwog discovered a little gem. Behold: the final exam schedule. Looks like the registrar finally decided to do their job this semester! It’s only the second week of classes and […]
Typically, finding a a seat in The Reference Room (also known by its street name “Ref”), can be as challenging as surviving Columbia’s demanding curriculum. However, during finals it’s impossible to secure a seat if you don’t head to Butler before 8 am. I’ve learned a few things after spending more time here than in my actual living quarters, and […]
It’s our final Field Notes of the season, and boy are we tired. Seriously. As we all get ready for the home stretch, we’re either getting way too much or way too little when it comes to catching Z’s. Here’s what happened on our wild weekends – as always, submit your own for the next […]
Who else is done with this current semester? With finals looming and those pesky papers in the backs of everyone’s minds, look forward to a new semester with a whole new group of classes to later cry over. Today marks the first day of L-course Signup and Registration for the spring, so those of you who have their […]
As finals season absorbs the very best of us, stealing our sleep and sanity with every hour inside Butler, it’s important to remember to take care and destress. We know Columbia Students aren’t always the best at this, so we’ve decided to help out. Here’s a couple of coloring pages showing the best activism of Columbia, to […]
It’s Reading Week, you’re looking through your notes, and you realize much of what you scribbled down is illegible, strange, or undecipherable. Even more of it is just amusing. Below are some of your classmates’ notes, which are by turns sad, excited, mean, and strangely enough, helpful. Life Mottos “Mitochondria Are the Powerhouse of the […]
If there’s one thing we learned this semester in AllSex it’s that we all deserve a little self-care to get us through stressful times, particularly finals. We only had a couple “reading days” this round, so you’re rightfully so probably stress pooping in Butler/stressing out in general about your approaching exams. Resident Mom Courtney Couillard […]
