Waking Up With Bwog: Jet Lag Edition

It’s Friday, the sixth day of NSOP, and you’re so tired you feel jet lagged…what did you do last night? When did you stumble back to bed? Why did you wake up at 9 am for that free yoga class? Even if you did none of these things, you’re probably confused, disoriented, nursing a headache, […]

The possibility of free laundry was announced last semester at CCSC, where it was said that room and board costs would be raised by $30 […]

Traveling Pants?

Hygienic tipster Katheryn Thayer noticed this unhappy note at the laundry machines. Perhaps it is not as biting as past informal laundry notices, but Bwog applauds all means of pants retrieval.

Pimp My Laundromat (For A Price)

As those of us who prefer our underwear soft and downy have noticed, the Columbia laundry rooms have recently undergone major renovations.  Many of the washers and dryers have been replaced with high-efficiency models; some of the Flex readers still are not functioning, and, most notably for students, the price per load in all machines […]

I Spy…Oh, Wait. Not That Guy

Two pieces of good news came in over the official Bwog wire this afternoon.  First, the first Mac Gray trucks have been spotted about campus after the Great Laundry Flex outage of 2009. Flex readers in laundry rooms all over campus have been out since just before the start of the semester, but as of […]

Hartley Laundry Room Rises From The Ashes

   Image via the BBC For once in your life (savor the moment) something’s been completed before facilities said it would be! Tipsters report that the Hartley laundry room is back in business today after last week’s spontaneous combustion; the email Housing sent out didn’t anticipate the laundry room’s return until Monday, the 27th.

East Campus and McBain to Be “Serviced” Over Break

For those of you staying in East Campus or McBain over break, Columbia University Facilities will be using the time to fix your residence. In McBain, elevator repairs will mean that both elevators will be out on Monday, December 29th. In EC, the story’s slightly less chipper, and quite a bit longer. Facilites “has identified […]

Domesticity Afoot in the Barnard Philosophy Department

When we posted an update about all the new professorial friends you’ll be making (and losing) next year, we weren’t aware that we had made a grave and conspicuous omission. One recent grad informed us that Cheryl Mendelson, wife of Edward Mendelson, is filling in as “Term Associate Professor” in the Barnard Philosophy Department next […]

It’s the Machines (and Housing) vs. Us

Prolific Bwog tipster Jon Hill has just notified Bwog of an enchanting electrical set-up in the bowels of the John Jay laundry room that would put the efforts of the Disneyland electrical parade to shame.  In the carefully crafted email seen below, it appears that the entirety of the dorm’s laundry machinery is hardwired to […]

F#@k you, TIDE stealer

This message found taped to an EC vending machine. Not that angry statements against laundry aggressors aren’t that novel, but this one’s pretty harsh… ATTENTION:  To whoever stole my year-supply of TIDE detergent (w/Febreze): I would like to tell you personally, that you are a douchebag. You couldn’t grab like a load’s-worth of detergent, you […]

Airing some grievances

Casting a glimpse at the sheets hanging on Low Plaza right now may trigger some residual memories of last spring’s SHOCC protests. But at today’s “speak out,” the medium is the message. Jennifer Oki, C’07 says Columbia sends dirty tablecloths from the faculty house and soiled towels from the EC hotel to get washed at […]

We’re quietly turning into Sims.

That’s right. Sims. A quick look at LaundryView’s new website will confirm that administrators think a polygonal world is the best one for us when it comes to deciding where we’ll do our laundry. Of course, this virtual reality is still far-enough removed from our own that it requires a legend to be understood. Maybe […]

Clean clothes, sparkling soul

Columbia is not fertile ground for religiosity. And Bwog’s pretty savvy about the conventional evangelical techniques, like free copies of the New Testament and the sweet women who accost us with invitations to Bible study on our way across College Walk. What got us was the man at the Amsterdam gates handing out boxes of […]
