Waiting For Godot (Outside Of John Jay)

Rambunctious newsletter editor Zoe Sottile is just like you: scared to walk into John Jay alone. We’ve all been there. You’re hungry. You’re craving a nice John Jay sushi roll, or maybe some of the miscellaneous pastes from the vegan station smeared on white bread. You text a friend to ask if they want to […]

Columbia Dorms As Seasons of American Horror Story

October can’t come soon enough. To get his spook on, senior Bwogger Leo Bevilacqua decided to sort through his love-hate relationship with Ryan Murphy in a productive way.  MURDER HOUSE (Carman) – Where the horror begins quite literally. Plus, some unfortunate upperclassmen find themselves trapped in this liminal space for years to come as RA’s. Those […]

Carman’s Ongoing Lack Of Hot Water Points To Larger Housing Issues

In early December, Bwog received a tip, included at the end of the post, that complained of a lack of hot water in Carman’s renovated floors since the beginning of the year. After receiving notification of this concern, Bwog investigated. Since August 2017, several residents of Carman Hall’s newly renovated floors, floors 9 to 13, […]

Why Is John Jay Dining Hall Always Playing Sex Music?

It’s a Thursday morning–you’ve already slept through your 10:10 (whoops), and you’re in need of some nourishment. You roll into John Jay at around 11, half-asleep and seeking an egg white omelet, and you’re immediately greeted by Yung Berg shouting/growling, “SE-XY! CAN! I!” It’s a jarring experience–serving yourself some cereal as Drake croons, “I’m trying […]

Columbia Dorms: The Sad Boy To Fuck Boy Spectrum

We know you’ve all thought it. Which dorm your current hookup lives in says a lot about his relative sadboy- or fuckboy-ness. Whether he’s a Carman athlete, a Furnald poet, or a Wein loner, the stereotypes hold true more often than not. After all, what’s a stereotype without a little bit of truth? Read on for […]

Name A Dining Hall, Win A Swipe

So, it appears that we’re going to have to live with this strange John Jay-JJ’s amalgamation for a few more weeks ( perhaps longer, depending on how the repair takes). This isn’t any kind of major inconvenience – John Jay serves mozzarella sticks just fine, and we can take trading basement Foosball for more seating area […]

Freshpeople Housing Reviews 2016: John Jay

Named after one of our favorite founding fathers, John Jay is next on our freshpeople housing lineup. While this building is known for its dining halls (John Jay & its greasy younger brother, JJ’s place), there are other qualities that make it a desirable residence hall.

Resident Wiser Than Resident Advisor

We received a tip that an RA in John Jay was CAVA’d by their students this past week. They have since been fired. Another source tells us that the RA was found lying unconscious in a bathroom stall. The source had to crawl under the door to help said person out of the stall because the stall […]

WTF CU: John Jay

One of the bathrooms on John Jay 13 has been “occupied” for the past two weeks. Why is this the case, you ask? We conjectured that someone was cooking valuable quantities of meth (Breaking Bad is still big after all). Hell, a new resident might be living there. As it turns out, however, our favorite freshman shit hole dormitory is simply falling apart. […]

RoomHop: We Thought This Was A Sample Dorm

Libby Kandel and Christina Clark, aka Bwog’s kangaroos of room-hopping, went to get the story behind the intriguingly bare room of a John Jay resident. “Did you just get robbed?” would be an appropriate question when you walk into the room of Resident X* on John Jay 13. He’ll shrug his shoulders and say, “I […]
