Moving On Up To The Morningside

Welcome, frosh! Today saw the slightly chaotic move-in of Barnard first-years as well as students not from New Jersey CC/SEAS international students and the farthest away domestic students. OLs greeted each car that pulled up to Carman with school-spirit-crazed cheers, Columbia didn’t card anybody for food bags and trays of hot dogs, and all was well. Freshmen: […]

Moving In: Everyone Else’s Turn

Bwog almost forgot in the excitement of NSOP that Columbia supports three other years’ worth of students, but with Saturday the 31st looming, we can’t ignore the empty suitcase sitting on our bedroom floor. Sorry, first-years — it’s been real, but starting tomorrow you’re going to have to share campus with 2016, 2015, and 2014. […]

Dear Bwog: Design Drama Edition

We’re here to help, so ask away via tips@bwog.com. Dear Bwog, What’s the best way […]

Dear Bwog, Move In Edition

Behold your dorm room. It’s—It’s—It’s—nice?? Don’t be too disappointed. You’ll stain it too and make it your own. (Fun fact: JJ11 has a tainted legacy. One past resident drunkenly shat on the floor.) Anywho, college may be your first time living on your own, so you probably have some questions. We’re here to help. In […]

Collegeboxes: The Return

Today is not only the first day of school, it’s also the day when Controversial Storage Company Collegeboxes (the very same one banned from Barnard) makes its glorious return to campus, maybe with some of your stuff in tow! Bwog spoke with one girl waiting in front of Lerner to retrieve her packages. She warned […]

2012 Navigates the Move-In Lines

This morning, the rest of 2012 has arrived on campus to be greeted by happy NSOP leaders and their first Columbia challenge: move-in lines. Reports from campus indicate that the lines are manageable, though. Free food mavens, be aware: the family lunch is starting right about now, allowing you to test the efficacy of NSOP […]

Awkward…appropriate

The songs that play on a loop during move-in always seem to set the tone for the rest of the semester. So far, we’ve heard this sequence: “Caught Up” – Usher, which transitioned to “Rehab”- Amy Winehouse, which was abruptly and awkwardly stopped during the “class…shot glass” line and changed to something by Frank Sinatra.

West Coast to the Westside

International and West Coast first-years have arrived! They are soggy, worn-out, and a bit irritable, but not nearly as irritable as they could be. The rain has slowed to an intermittent drizzle, Housing and Dining has soundtracked the event with weather appropriate songs like “Singing in the Rain,” the lines for the elevators at John […]
