At Fireside Chat, Bollinger Says Nothing Definitive

Once a semester, a small group of students are selected to attend a Q&A at PrezBo’s house. They are treated to blintzes, fancy soda, and lots of very evasive answers. New Bwogger Yaniv Goren found this semester’s talk uncharacteristically dull, but not without highlights. Last night, President Bollinger held this academic year’s first Fireside Chat. […]

President Bollinger Discussed Manhattanville, DACA At Fireside Chat

We got to chill with PrezBo last night while he talked to students and answered questions at the Fireside Chat. Alma Bwogger Rachel Deal was there to tell you what he said and to get a pic with the man of the hour (who, as always, was squinting in the photo). Last night, President Bollinger […]

Door Vandalism And The Muslim Ban Define Fireside Chat

In his first Fireside Chat since October, PrezBo invited lottery winners to 60 Morningside Drive to enjoy some hors d’oeuvres and hostile conversation. The usual suspects from the administration joined him in his not-so-humble abode: Deans Harford & Cromm, Ixchel Rosal playing the Undergraduate Student Life role in place of Suzanne Goldberg, VP of Campus […]

Barnard’s Fireside Chat Gets Political

This Tuesday, in the spirit of FDR’s (and PrezBo’s) famous “fireside chats,” President Spar sat around a table with a group of passionate young students to discuss this election cycle. The group was handpicked from applications to ensure discussion would be stimulating enough that Dspar wouldn’t be checking her twitter under the table halfway through. […]

When Your Fireside Chat Dreams Go Up In Flames

Editor Nadra Rahman comes to you with a heart full of lamentation. Today, instead of preparing for an intimate night by the fire with fluffy-haired CU dreamboat Prezbo, she sits alone and thinks of what might have been. The Chain of Events On Friday, January 2, 2016, I received an email about the fireside chat, an “opportunity […]

Into The Fire(side Chat)

Bwog Editor-In-Chief Britt Fossum had the fortunate opportunity to attend one of PrezBo’s intimate “fireside chats,” bringing a junior staffer along as her escort. The pair report back about the exclusive event to you here–lucky you! Another year, another fireside chat. Milling about in a crowd of freshmen and administrators, I felt like an expert at […]

Global Notes From The Fireside Chat

Last night, we were invited to President Bollinger’s first undergraduate fireside chat of the semester. Editor in Chief Taylor Grasdalen attended, and reports back here. (Please note that Internal Editor Britt Fossum also went, having won a seat by submitting the question “Do you read Bwog?”) I must acknowledge that this was not my first Fireside […]

Fireside Chat: Graduate Students, Policy, and Expansion

Last night, Columbia University President Lee Bollinger held a chat for graduate students at his Morningside Drive mansion house. Barnard College sophomore and Bwog staff member Taylor Grasdalen visited on our behalf to keep up with the non-undergraduate community and PrezBo’s many global thoughts. I hardly expected to be the first to arrive for President […]

Fireside Chat, Graduate Edition

PrezBo held one of his famous fireside chats; this time, for graduate students. He served us pretty good burritos and nachos, as well as the smallest cupcakes Bwog has ever seen. Wonder what he said? Presidential party crasher Artur Renault has got you covered. People were very confused at my name tag, which said “Bwog,” where […]

Fireside Chat: Wellness and PrezBo’s Future

PrezBo held a Fireside Chat last night, complete with snacks and fancy outfits. Bwog’s Bollinger Buddy Britt Fossum went to chat by his fireside. I was told that President Bollinger’s fireside chat would begin at 6:00 PM, and so I hurried out of my CC class fifteen minutes early, regretting my decision to exchange midterms […]

Fireside Chat: Globalization, Globalization, Globalization (And Canada)

On Tuesday evening the ever-indomitable President Bollinger hosted one of his intimate (75 guests), candid (carefully prepared questions), and free-food decked Fireside Chats at 60 Morningside Drive. Curious staircase climber Alexandra Avvocato was in attendance, ready to both report and eat as many miniature sliders as possible.  Climbing up the marble staircase of Bollinger’s mansion, […]

Fireside Chat: On Whether or Not You Can Have it All, Again

This Thursday night, around fifteen Barnard women gathered around the fireplace stark, white, postmodern wall of the Diana Center’s Judith Shapiro Faculty Dining Room to discuss whether or not women can have it all with a woman at Barnard who seems to have gotten pretty close: President Debora Spar. Bwog sent its Barnard Bureau Chief, […]

Fireside Chat: DSpar and the Sorting Hat

Bwog’s Conspicuous Presence of Testosterone Mark Hay crossed the street with his wand last night. Barnard women: President Spar has a problem with you. Or rather, with your sense of identity. As she told her cowed subjects amassed in Sulzberger Parlor for last night’s Fireside Chat, over the last year she was disturbed to hear […]
