New York City is packed with amazing culture and inspiring art, but sometimes it’s difficult to break the Morningside-bubble and experience it all first-hand. “Where Art Thou” is a weekly guide to interesting and notable
Bwogger Nicki Camberg is tired of hearing the story of the founding of Barnard every time she leaves her dorm, and has decided to address this issue head on. We were all once there. Bright eyed
Welcome to the equally solemn and enthusiastic beginning to your morning. We take the good with the bad, and so should you.
On Friday morning, the Columbia University Band Alumni Association sent out a press release announcing that the marching band will continue to play at future athletic events, including the homecoming game this Saturday.
It’s a new installment of Cooking with Bwog! In honor of the upcoming Hallow’s Eve, Bwogger Cara will provide you with a no-muss no-fuss potion to get you through midterms.
To further honor the newly accepted class of 2018, Bwog is rolling out reviews of the freshman dorms on campus considering you kiddos need to pick where you want to live soon. Whether you prefer living in the same building as John Jay, or stay true to your love for Carman because it doesn’t get better, we’re sure […]
According to a tip, a urinal in the John Jay 5 men’s room is flooding. The urinal is pissed. A straight flush. The biggest leak since Snowden. Who’s in trouble? Urine trouble! I hate John Jay. Fuck this place. Suck my dick Columbia. Remember that you can call Columbia Housing 24/7 at (212) 854-2779 for […]
Thanks to the 1100-signature petition delivered by Student–Worker Solidarity to Columbia Dining, John Jay Dining Hall workers no longer have to endure a ridiculously hot kitchen. Pizza-baking, which apparently puts out a lot of heat, has been moved downstairs until Dining can put in better ventilation. Press release: This evening, workers at John Jay excitedly […]
Student-Worker Solidarity is on another campaign—last year it was Faculty House, and now it’s working conditions in John Jay dining hall. According to SWS’s release, they delivered a petition (circulated as a Google) to dining director Vicki Dunn. It called for “proper ventilation and AC” in the dining hall. Dunn “claimed that these changes would […]
Sometimes we forget, but Columbia has some freaking awesome stuff. In our efforts to remind ourselves of this, we bring you a new series: Bwog Goes Deep, in which we find cool shit in the Rare Book and Manuscript Library and tell you about it. Chances are you immediately deleted it, but last week an […]
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 […]
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 […]
…literally reaches to Butler. Go forth and feast on lobster and steak! Or make friends with someone with a meal plan really quickly. Pro tip: we hear the line is shorter at Ferris just as long at Ferris. Update (9:45): We’ve heard that someone got CAVA’d during the event. Whether it was from eating too much […]
This semester, Columbia dining, CCSC ’16, and ESC ’16 have implemented a new idea in the John Jay dining hall: the Community Table. Intended to build community within Columbia, but especially within the freshman class, this new addition seemed like a nice way to spice up your meal with awkward small talk engaging conversation. We […]
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 […]
The dining routine at John Jay can get a little monotonous as the days go by, particularly when it comes to the desserts. On the best of nights you have a choice between gelatin, sad chunks of fruit, and the occasional dry cake, with fro-yo as the only saving grace. A few daring students (read: […]
Update, 5:20 am: Dean Shollenberger has sent an email to all students confirming that Martha Corey-Ochoa, CC ’16, passed away last night. Our thoughts are with her friends and family. Update, 2:45 am: Dean Shollenberger has confirmed to Bwog that the student has passed away, minutes after an email with the same information was sent to […]
