SGA asks about the Beyond Barnard experience and what they can do moving forward.
Career development has been pretty fishy lately… with weird jobs posted on Nacelink, and the office’s awkward location on Claremont, one of our Staff Writers was pushed past her limit with her most recent experiences, described below. I visited the Barnard Office of Career Development for the first time last week, when it suddenly hit […]
A Bwog staffer noticed some strange goings-on in the Barnard Buy/Sell/Trade Facebook page and decided to investigate. Last week, a post from Sanam Jalinous, BC ’19, and Hannah Hungerford, BC ’19, for a free table at Joe’s revolutionized the potential of Barnard’s Buy/ Sell/ Trade page. No more was the page just for clothing rejects […]

Perlin is best known for his book Intern Nation: How to Earn Nothing and Learn […]
Most Columbian undergrads only live in the city for the nine cooler months out of the year. Those who have remained for the summer observe a city-wide, metaphysical transformation. Brief experience with the truly oppressive combination of ~100 degree weather and giant concrete/metal heatsinks forces a renegotiation of one’s relationship with basic infrastructure. “Urban jungle” takes […]
Whether to work an internship, catch up on credits, or avoid family, a significant portion of Columbia stays in NYC between academic years. A summer in the ‘hood allows students to see a different side of the city, one in which papers aren’t due tomorrow morning and a happy hour margarita at The Heights might actually serve to cool […]
