What Students Actually Want To Buy On Buy/ Sell/ Trade

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.

Salve for the Steamed, Summer Soul
