We Know Where You Study Based Off Of What Netflix TV Show You Binge Watch

Where you study says a lot about you, and Bwog is here to either shame or celebrate you for it. If one of the following TV shows is at the front of your Netflix queue, you’re most likely spending your peak studying hours in the accompanying location. The Office (U.S.): You study in Butler 209. You lack […]

Personals: Emily, Jake, and NoCo

Valentine’s Day approacheth! Today’s Columbians looking for love are Emily Injeian (the greatest roommate ever), Jake Gange, and Noco. If you want to take any one of these awesome humans/ buildings on a date, email us and we’ll set it up (and give you ten whole dollars to take ‘em out). But sorry guys, we’ve […]

Lecture Hall Reviews: NoCo 501

Remembering our fine tradition of reviewing things that don’t really matter pass over the undiscerning eye (such as pastries, cafes and chairs), we mark the beginning of a new semester with the beginning of a new set of criticisms — in this case, the lecture hall. After all, environment is everything. Our first assessment comes from […]

Some Assembly Required

In this newest excerpt from The Blue and White, Conor Skelding tells us what the Northwest Corner Building can teach Columbia about Manhattanville. Additional reporting by Sally Gao, Luca Marzorati, and Angelica Modabber. “Did you know there’s a 15-story coffee shop by Pupin?” asked a bumbling but blunt Dean Valentini in last spring’s 118th annual Varsity […]

Bwoglines: Dream Beliebers Edition

Dreamy heartthrob Davy Jones of The Monkees died yesterday of a heart attack, leaving all of us just Daydream Believing (LA Times) Did you finally stop having nightmares about Patrick Bateman?  Sorry… (Huffington Post) Justin Bieber turned 18 today.  Those dreams you started having after “taking your little sister” to see Never Say Never are now […]

Overseen: Wishful Thinking

The quality of hope never dies, even in the face of being kicked out of the NoCo library far too soon. In an effort to make words into actions, a dreamer scrawled the promise of “ALL DAY ERRDAY!!”  hours outside of NoCo. If only; if only. But honestly, the library and Joe’s hours suck. Solidarity, […]

Laughably Predictable

Well, that was quick. While this fence probably isn’t here to stay, it is still a bit disheartening to have our hopes of enjoying the sight of a bit of green in the last sunny days of the year mercilessly crushed by the presence of this drab eyesore. Right photo by Chris Mulligan

The Grass Really Is Greener

Behold the marriage of modernism and nature! Or at least something green. In this urban jungle we’ll take what we can get. The hardscrabble, weeds, and dead shrubs that littered the raised-plaza-thing outside NoCo have blossomed into perfectly manicured grass sod. Looks like a great place for the kids in the brochures to lay out and read books. […]

Overheard: A Very Rough Estimate

Think you’re all set for job fairs just ’cause you’re sporting semi-formal and have a sheaf of resumes? Think again—a tipster overheard the following ominous exchange in NoCo: “Talking to people at job fairs is, like, 50 times harder than talking to girls.” “Wow, that’s really hard.” Visual brotip via Wikimedia Commons

Overseen Part II: The Mugliest Offense

The NoCo librarians have stuck again! After launching a pun-laden campgain against non-spillproof mugs last week, the intrepid book-minders (there are books in there somewhere, right…?) feel it necessary to now also point out that food is not allowed in the Science and Enginerring Library. Thus, they’ve printed out a picture of a most comely […]

Overseen: The Good, the Bad, and the Mugly

There are two kinds of people in the world, my friend: those with the right kind of mug in the NoCo library, and those who tell you that you have the wrong mug… …and that you can’t use your phone

First Plenary Meeting Doesn’t Disappoint

Today from 1:15 to 2:39 pm, our own University Senate met in Schermerhorn 501 for the first plenary meeting of the year. As with any such plenary, there were big helpings of Milano cookies, Newman’s Own juices, and petty behavior. Bwog’s plenary junkie Conor Skelding stopped by both for the laughs, and also to observe serious […]

Panic! at the NoCo

Bwog has just received a flurry of tips reporting unsettling activities around NoCo. Public Safety declined to comment, but the situation appears to be resolved. Helicopters were spotted above the north side of campus, and NoCo was evacuated, apparently due to a fire that broke out where construction was going on. Joe was also temporarily […]

OfficeHop: Contemplations, Coffee, and Façades

If Barnard’s psychology Professor Robert Remez had a spirit animal, it would be the Sphinx. The one perched on his desk, he explains, reminds him to “maintain an eloquent silence, but it’s not working.” Lucky for Bwog, the eloquent-but hardly silent-professor shared his office for one of our more scholarly features. Katheryn Thayer stopped by his […]
