John Jay Got A Makeover

While you were away eating home-cooked meals, JJ got some serious work done, and is now hella shiny and renovated. Those new plates! Those shiny woody/laquered surfaces!! Those gleaming floors!!! The still nonsensical arrangement of food!!!!! For those of you who never knew anything else, things were not always this new and clean, and that […]

John Jay Continues To Suck

This morning, we received a  lovely tip detailing the continuing frustrations of vertical movement within John Jay Hall.  This past January, we saw an uprising of sorts as the JJ elevators were under endless repair.  Apparently some freshmen’s advice to not use the John Jay “lifts” and just take the stairs was moot as, in […]

Overseen: John Jay Goes Cray Cray

One of John Jay’s elevators has been undergoing emergency repair since the beginning of the semester. The oppressed and alienated residents of the 15-story building now have to make a choice: to arduously wait in line for up to 20 minutes or to scale the building’s interminable stairs. Enraged, the John Jayites are rising against […]

Zagat Dining Guide: John Jay

The dining routine at John Jay can get a little monotonous as the days go by, particularly when it comes to the desserts.

Ask Bwog: What is That Large Automobile?

A fearful tipster spotted this truck outside of John Jay with the words “From Food to Fuel” stamped on its side. Intrigued, we couldn’t help but wonder: is this what happens to dining hall leftovers once they’re beyond being recycled as pizza toppings?
