Fireside Feminism

Last night, DSpar and SGA joined forces to host a Fireside Chat with the woman who pretty much has it all but wants you to know it’s ok if you don’t.  Luckless lottery loser Kyra Bloom sat in and listened up.  Tomorrow we’ll be posting The Blue and White’s review of DSpar’s new book. Admittedly, I volunteered […]

SGA: Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes

Barnard’s Student Government Association meets every week, and every week we send our best Barnard bear Renée Kraiem to bear witness. This is her report: Last night’s Rep Council meeting, which occurred sans administrative guest and a sizable portion of representatives celebrating the most recent Jewish holiday to fall on a Monday. These factors opened […]

Fireside Chat: Great Visions, Mediocre Answers

Last night, lucky students (along with invited guests like CCSC President Karishma Habbu, ESC President Tim Qin, and members of the media) spent an evening in PrezBo’s house for one of his famous “Fireside Chats,” dining on fine cuisine (mini hot dogs, mini burgers, regular size chicken fingers, and cookies) and discussing the state of […]

Fireside Chat: Globalization, Wellness, and Transparency

As he does from time to time, last night PrezBo opened the doors to his grandiose abode on Morningside Drive to a number of students and administrators for the latest in his Rooseveltian series of fireside chats. A pair of Bwog editors were in attendance, and positioned themselves on a soft couch to listen in on the night’s […]

Fireside Chat: #OWS, M’Ville, & WLF

PrezBo generously shared his mansion and manservant with some lucky lottery winners at his first Fireside Chat last night from 6 to 7:30 pm. Bwog’s Conor Skelding, ever eager to enter 60 Morningside Drive, stopped by to watch his fellow students waffle between demonizing and deifying their president-for-life. 5:57 to 6:35 pm was spent mingling around a central snack […]

Fireside Chat: Willing To Be Inspired

Barnard President Debora Spar held her latest fireside chat last night, and Zach Kagan was there to drink in the excitement. DSpar verily sparkled! Spar, although set apart from her audience in the middle of an arc of empty seats, conducted the chat more or less as a community conversation. The evening was focused on the […]

PrezBo By the Fire

Ok, so there wasn’t an actual fire in the fireplace, but there was a lot of great food and – much to Bwog’s delight – PrezBo arrived predictably late wearing desert boots! Since some of you have been to a fireside chat yourself, or have at least read our regular coverage on Bwog, we won’t […]

Fireside Chat: DSpar Sacrifices Bathing for the Greater Good

Bwog’s Katheryn Thayer stopped by Sulzberger Parlor on Tuesday night to chat with DSpar about the world’s water problems. DSpar, perhaps realizing that “water” is a broad topic of discussion for her first Fireside Chat of the year, passed around pictures of the overused, depleted Aral Sea and the arsenic-laced pumps in Bangladesh. She explained that […]

PrezBo’s Fireside Chat: Pre-Professionalism and Hors D’Oeuvres

Bwog’s very own Zoe Camp stopped by the presidential mansion Tuesday night to have a chat with PrezBo. PrezBo’s fireside chat offered freshpeople a rather magical escape from the perils of dorm life. Lo, the mountains of hors d’oeuvres, the perfectly-arranged rows of chairs, the meticulously clean, downright palatial bathrooms – ladies and gentlemen, we’re not in […]

Fireside Chat: PrezBo Serves Tasty Hope to Grad Students

Last night, President Lee Bollinger invited members of the various graduate schools to visit his palatial estate for an intimate chat on this, that, and just possibly everything. Bwog’s Conspicuously Young Bureau Chief Mark Hay was in attendance to check in on the heartbeat of the University. If you’ve made it this far into your […]

Fireside Chat: DSpar Speaks in Tongues!

Mark Hay is a boy. Here’s his dispatch from DSpar’s Fireside Chat. Last night in Barnard Hall’s Sulzberger Parlor, Barnard President Debora Spar gathered with some odd twenty-five students to rehash a topic that has figured prominently in her thoughts and actions over the past year – how do Barnard girls engage with life in […]

Fireside Chat: Not Ahmadinejad Edition

A few times every semester, PrezBo invites students into his home to ask questions and chow down on some top-quality hors d’oeuvres. Bwog Editor and Senior Hair Correspondent James Downie reports. Eager first-years and grizzled seniors packed into the President’s stately abode (located right behind Wien, presumably to taunt unlucky juniors) on Thursday night, armed […]

ESC: Other Stuff Besides 40s on 40

As reported last night, the major story out of Monday night’s ESC meeting was the potential replacement of 40s on 40 with a BBQ (albiet one with alcohol). But alcohol was not the only topic of the meeting, the last before ESC begins its annual constitutional review. The 2009 class council announced that the last SEAS fireside chat was canceled […]

PrezBo’s Fireside Chat: Let Them See Dogs

Bwog’s David Berke ventured into the PrezBo abode for the latest fireside chat. President Bollinger hosted another fireside (though there is no fireplace) chat this evening, bringing undergraduates to his mansion for an hour-long discussion of campus concerns. The catered event, with ornate hors d’oeuvres and apple cider poured from stylish silver dispensers by black-tied […]

Fireside Chat: PrezBo Consoles the Weary

The Fireside Chat, a chance to sort of meet and sort of greet President Bollinger, is offered every semester to the entire undergraduate student body. Only about 30 students are (randomly, with control of the number of students representing each school) selected to attend this quasi-intimate two-hour session in the presidential mansion, at 60 Morningside […]
