Ahh, Columbia! The Ivy League School where the brightest students from around the world study under renowned professors, hanging out in groups with perfect diversity and doing mock trial in their free time. Or so
Today, we compiled some advice specifically for students interested in science at Columbia. If you’re curious about what your first science lecture will be like, how to get into on-campus research, or how to take
An effusion of fancy . . .
On Saturday, Staff Writer Henry Golub made his way up two staircases, a ramp, and another staircase to see Third Wheel Improv perform in Lerner. They were even funnier than last time. In my last review, I recommended that you all see Third Wheel perform for yourselves. I’m glad I did, because last night exceeded my expectations. […]
Staff Writer Henry Golub wrote about Lerner using six haikus One: Time, time, who needs it? When I schlep up your long ramps My beating heart aches Two: Ferris is crowded Lines last for thirty minutes A bagel for me Three: I like nothing more Than placing my pencil down And seeing it roll Four: If I had […]
Been around Lerner lately? Of course you have, everything happens in Lerner. But could there be a darker side to the building that we students don’t know about? Investigate with Bwogger Nadra Rahman as she tries to get to the bottom of the sinister mailbox replacement fee hike. A persistent tipster will not let this go, […]
Bureau chief and campus politics connoisseur Joseph Milholland is back again this week to bring you the latest from last night’s General Studies Student Council meeting. The administrators who run Lerner Hall want to turn the computer lab on the first floor (near TIC) into a study lounge, according to General Studies Student Council president […]
Contrary to popular belief, our beloved administrative behemoth student center has bathrooms. You might have to navigate contradictory signs and even the odd ramp, but for the intrepid pooper lie porcelain thrones beyond your wildest dreams. Privacy (is this a poop or pee bathroom?) Equally stellar for either option. The urinals are deep to prevent splash-back and to […]
Joseph C. Milholland fights through midterm malaise to check in with our tireless CCSC. This week’s CCSC meeting was a meeting of three resolutions in what was described as a “serious meeting.” Barnard Columbia Divest started the meeting by bringing to the council their petition, the “first direct initiative” in the history of Columbia University […]
Stop by Lerner today between 12 and 1 pm if you’re in the mood for something a little salty (Mexican food) and also pretty sweet (a performance by Miracles of Modern Science). Live at Lerner is hosting its weekly free lunch, and the menu is this: Quesadillas Chips Churros To pique your appetite, check out […]
Morningside Heights may have spent all summer heaving great sobs of loneliness, but it isn’t about to greet newcomers and returning students with super puffy eyes. On the contrary, it’s been having quite a bit of work done. Send any minutiae we missed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stop by the Lerner ramps this afternoon from 1 to 3 pm for Occupy CU’s champagne study break. It’s all part of a new strategy, Bwog was told, to broaden membership and boost participation by making Occupy events as similar to I-banking recruitment dinners as possible. “Whatever works, amiright?” theorized an organizer in a tip […]
Lerner was just evacuated after a fire alarm sounded. No need for real alarm, though, dear reader, as the entire Bwog staff was able to exit the building safely after that meeting you should’ve attended. When several of them tried to re-enter to find out what was going on, they were told to “just get […]
Two younglings approach Lerner from the Furnald side, gazing excitedly through the glass façade: Kiddo 1: “Woah! How do you get in?” Kiddo 2: “It looks like a maze!” Kiddo 1: “I could just like, run… up the stairs” Kiddo 2: “But it’s like… a ramp?” Don’t worry guys, we don’t understand it either. Hunt […]
Last night, Lerner tried really hard to be a fun student center. And a fair number of students decided to play along, filling the glass house with the most students it’s seen since the early-semester package center line. Amongst the awkward collision of students both sober and schwasted, one could find free food, performances by […]
