Happy Name Day, NoCo!

Today marks one year since Bwog deepened our romance with the Northwest Corner Building by polling you, dear readers, to find the perfect nickname. NoCo beat out such worthy contenders as “NWC,” “The Cheesegrater,” and “The Panopticon.” Whatever you want to call it, take a moment to raise a cup of Joe to our shiniest and most […]

LibraryHop: NoCo Science & Engineering Library

Bwog likes to hop all sorts of things, from Equestrian club saddles to lingering denizens of Butler café, but especially libraries. Today, Anish Bramhandkar takes you the NoCo Science and Engineering Library. Yes, NoCo’s been open for a while, but we’re still captivated. It’s just so fancy. You’d think the starkness of the Mudd engineering […]

Huzzah! The votes are in and the winner of Bwog’s “Name the Northwest Corner Building Before Some Other Rich Guy Pays To” poll is… NoCo! Thanks to you, the Northwest Corner Building now has a name befitting its slick architectural style and the shmancy Joe’s Coffee inside.

Experience Joe

Bwog welcomes you inside our brain as we experience the new Joe… “It’s like Soho, except cleaner (for now). A Mac-lover’s refuge! But no outlets and they’ll probably need more tables. The chairs are surprisingly light (don’t weigh much). Flooded with sunlight with pick-up sticks molesting peripheral vision from above.” “Espresso drink sizes are 8 […]

Bloomberg Spotting

The Northwest Corner Building is officially a thing! Rumor has it, the fancy uber high-tech new café opening Monday will serve Joe Coffee and use iPad cash registers.

Bloomberg For Breakfast!

Last night Bwog received a copy of Mayor Bloomberg’s public schedule. He’s slated to appear at the Northwest Science building café at 11:30 this morning. We wonder what he’s announcing! Update, 12:21: Mike B will launch the NYC Urban Technology Innovation Center, a sustainable tech initiative. Columbia is one of 3 schools partnering with the […]

Enter the Void: Inside the Northwest Corner Building (accompanied by PrezBo!)

We pondered its meaning, and delighted in its reflections. This building has been going up for years, but has managed to remain mysteriously shrouded in scaffolding. No longer! A day before the building officially opened on Friday, Bwog had the opportunity to join a group of  journalists on an architectural tour of the building, guided […]

The NW Science Building…It’s A Thing

There some activity up on the plaza between Pupin and the new Northwest Science Building.  Walkways are being laid down, the broken bricks you kick on the way to class are being repaired and this ridiculously long awning connects to a big tent. Could it be some ritzy opening ceremony?  If you know, email us […]

Northwest Science Building Looks Nice

Not all beauty on campus is the kind that makes you nostalgic while you’re still here. Some of it falls more into the stunning-glass-building-reflection class. Go enjoy the weather while it’s nice! Photo by CCS

Boringside Heights: The Bigger Picture Edition

From the largest interdisciplinary fortress to the tiniest of urban meadows, no news is irrelevant. It’s about the bigger picture. A broken chain has been spotted on Low Plaza, trespass while you can! There is construction going on outside Nussbaum & Wu, so there is no outside seating (perhaps irrelevant in these current climes) Butler […]

The New Science Building Has a Door

A beautiful butterfly is emerging from its cocoon before our eyes! The not-so-cleverly-conceived and evidently donor-deficient Northwest Corner Building’s entryway can now be seen behind a white picket fence stretching across the plaza—look, it’s suburbia! In the city! Photos by CCS

The Economy Takes Away Science Libraries

A tipster has forwarded us a notice that “as a cost-saving measure,” Columbia will be closing the physics, chemistry, biology, and psychology libraries a full year early. According to Physics Department Chair Andrew Mills, who sent the email, “I have received two conflicting reports of the closing date: July 1, 2009 and July 31, 2009.” […]
