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.
The 15th Annual Jeanne Clery Lecture Series on April 6 brought sex educators Bianca Laureano and Francisco Ramirez together for a conversation about sex, dating, and intimacy during the pandemic.

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 […]

As spring internships start, we here at Bwog have realized that knowing exactly where Odysseus went, the intricacies of a Hobbesian state of nature, and the proxies involved in fMRIs aren’t very useful in a real workplace. With that in mind, we have compiled a list of classes the Core should teach in order to maximize […]
Monday night, a number of students gathered in a small room in Pupin to discuss the modern obstacles of labor rights in America. The presentation was titled Intern and Labor Rights: Amnesty Presents a Panel Discussion. It featured, among others, Ross Perlin. 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 […]
The typical nine-to-five for Ramon Diaz, CC ’12, takes “hands on” to a new level. While his numerous photo ops really speak for themselves, Bwog couldn’t help but pose a few follow-up questions. Join us as we get the quick-and-dirty. Bwog: How’d you get the job? We’re guessing not through CCE…? Ramon Diaz, CC ’12: […]

-Photo via Biojobblog.com How bad is the economy? Even the coffee lackeys are going to be out of work. For the 2009 internship season, companies are hiring almost 21 percent fewer interns. In a double shaft to college students everywhere, the number of applicants for these positions has increased by around the same percentage. That […]

Anne Hathaway, collegiate role model Let me tell you about the time I got an internship An “interview” with the guy behind an actually really cool blog Stereotypically railing against enforced gender stereotypes “We put not only the lipstick on the pig, but a dress, and we give it a tampon”
In which Bwog staffers reminisce–namelessly, by and large–about how they occupied themselves for the last few months. If you’ve got something better, send it (firstname.lastname@example.org) in and we’ll share! So my boss just sent me out on an errand, with nothing more than an address and his credit card. I assumed the location was a […]
The march of overachievers continues today as Bwog salutes Frances Jeffrey-Coker C’10.
