The Armory uptown is probably one of the best, most organized places to get vaccinated in the city. It has tons of appointment slots that open up pretty frequently. It’s also one of the most
Yes, I will miss campus and sitting in rooms learning about all sorts of things with my peers, but there are some things that I’m ready to just say goodbye to.
Two younglings approach Lerner from the Furnald side, gazing excitedly through the glass façade: Kiddo 1: “Woah! How do you get in?” Kiddo 2: “It looks like a maze!” Kiddo 1: “I could just like, run… up the stairs” Kiddo 2: “But it’s like… a ramp?” Don’t worry guys, we don’t understand it either. Hunt […]
As you’ve probably noticed, a main staircase in Lerner has been broken since last week, making the irritating trek from the ground floor to the package center a nauseating ramp-circling odyssey. We thought that the stairs might only be closed for a day or two, but now that the repairs are stretching into their second […]
The Columbia club scene is a mixed bag—and no, we don’t mean Campo Cloud 9 Saturdays. We mean, like, student clubs. Bwog’s Clubbin‘ feature is here to introduce you to some of the most eclectic of the group.

The neighborhood seems to be getting a face-lift this week. Perhaps you did not notice? Bwog did! The Starbucks espresso machine that had broken down, causing considerable distress, has now been repaired. Hartley lounge is is getting new windows. Everything is covered in plastic and the doors have been locked for days… The main entrance […]
Columbia inexplicably fails to put a front-page story on their website about Vampire Weekend. Meanwhile, Spec takes the low road and calls a Barnard swipe story “Easy Access.” Further downtown, it turns out that the guy from Harry and the Potters has nothing interesting to say. Community Board 9 is up in arms about a […]
Just kidding. We didn’t even peek. Anyway, Harry Potter 7 comes out at 12:01 am Saturday morning. But you knew that already.
