With the end of, hopefully, our last online semester comes another edition of Bwog Staff’s favorite running series. Read up on the music that defined our semester while getting vaccinated and practicing social distancing!
This past year has been nothing short of a disaster for many people, but working, learning, and socializing through our computer screens has produced a few silver linings that we’d want to stick around.
A noose was found at the Union Theological Seminary on Wednesday afternoon in an incident currently being investigated by the NYPD as a hate crime.
Bwog can somehow explain the past 22 days of housing, but the mystery behind the resurrecting 6-person Plimpton suite will remain unsolved.
To all the Columbia students who will find themselves being signed into here next year: you’re in luck. Barnard first year resident hall is one of the luckiest with AC, controlled heating, and amazing natural light. In this totally unbiased review written by Bwoggers-by-day and Sulz-residents-by-night Cara Hudson-Erdman and Idris O’Neill, read more about what […]
Barnard first-years might not get to choose what dorms they live next year but that doesn’t mean Bwog can’t review them anyway! Today, we’re taking a looks at Brooks Hall, Sulz’s hotter (in every sense of the word) neighbor. Location: 116th St & Broadway Nearby dorms: The rest of the dorms in the Quad (Sulz, Reid, […]
It might be the start of a new week, but Bwog is back with more coverage of Columbia Housing. Yes, there might be less dorms to choose from, but not all hope is lost: there are still some pretty good rooms and suites up for grabs. We will be covering housing all day and until […]
McBain is the definitively the worst dorm on campus. Don’t live here. If you are a rising sophomore whose lottery number isn’t good enough for Nuss, just go to Schapiro. Location: 113th and Broadway. Nearby dorms: Watt, Nussbaum, Frat Row, Carman Stores and restaurants: Milano’s, Junzi, Community, Nussbaum, Panda Express, Morton Williams, Westside, Duane Reade, International, Chase […]
Nicknamed “Symposium” for its proximity to the Greek restaurant, 548 W. 113th St is a great housing option for juniors and seniors who want a small, quiet, homey place to live while still being close to all the action in Morningside Heights. Location: 548 W. 113th St, right next to Symposium, the Greek restaurant. Nearby dorms: […]
Somewhere deep beneath the stacks of Butler library, an old proverb is written: on the third day of housing selection, one third of the rising junior class will know tears. We hope you, dear reader, will not be part of that cursed third, but if you are, there’s always space for you on our couch […]
Welcome to a new day of Housing Coverage (get excited)! If you weren’t able to pick during the first day, don’t you worry: there are still plenty of great dorms to choose from. It might be hard to believe, but things tend to work out the way that they are supposed to (or at least, […]
Looking for quiet yet beautiful, gentle frosh dorm with ~hardwood~? Wallach Hall, or as this Bwogger/former Wallach resident likes to affectionately call it, Wally, is a solid choice. Location: 1116 Amsterdam Avenue. Nearby Dorms: Connected to John Jay (Wallach’s cool friend) and Hartley (Wallach’s younger, weirder brother). Stores and Restaurants: JJ’s and John Jay Dining Hall are accessible from […]
Don’t be turned off by it’s distance from campus; Claremont is a great choice for upperclassman in search of a suite and great amenities! Location: 47 Claremont (suprising, we know) Nearby Dorms: It’s pretty far from the rest of Columbia’s dorms, but you’re close to your Barnard friends in Elliot, the 600s, and the Quad. Store […]
During housing selection coverage this afternoon, Bwog staffers manning The Couch discovered a dorm about which we had not previously been aware: the brownstone at 627 W. 115th Street. We have not yet been able to gather information from actual current residents of this mysterious dorm, but we still quickly compiled this quasi-housing review in […]
EC townhouse and high-rise suites will not have traditional stoves or ovens next year. Here’s why, and how it will affect you. In an email sent last Friday, Columbia Housing announced that due to ongoing renovations, EC suites will not have functioning stoves or ovens for the 2018-19 school year. In its place, Housing will supplement suites with hot plates […]

We’re providing you with everything you need for a (relatively) smooth in-person housing selection experience with our annual coverage. Below, […]
Located directly in front of PrezBo’s multi-million dollar house, Wien naturally comes up short. But we don’t think it deserves its bad rap—especially for rising sophomores and juniors who can snag renovated singles. Who doesn’t love a good sink? Location: 411 West 116th Street, between Amsterdam and Morningside (right by Morningside Park) Nearby Dorms: East Campus Stores […]
Cathedral Gardens (or, more colloquially, CG) is an oft-forgotten Barnard dorm that regardless always goes quickly during housing selection. It’s comparatively far from campus, sure, but it has large rooms, beautiful windows, hardwood floors and many other great amenities that make it a top pick for many rising seniors. Location: 217 Manhattan Ave. (at the […]
This housing review features 600 West 113th Street, better known as Nussbaum, not to be confused with the campus favorite, currently sanitary Grade Pending Nussbaum and Wu, that it’s right next to. Nussbaum, which occupies 6 floors of an old building perfect for aesthetic pictures, offers a living style that’s a compromise between suite style and […]
