Bwog’s trusted politics correspondent, Joe Milholland, is here to relay the info to you. “Manhattanville is, of course, the big thing,” said PrezBo at this Friday’s University Senate […]
So, Columbia’s second Quality of Life Survey is out. The subject matter is important – it’s a way for students to have a minuscule voice in the Hobbesian forces of the University of Columbia in the City of New York. But you know what’s even better than handing out statistics to the administration? Doing so while thoroughly buzzed! DISCLAIMER: Please drink […]

Yesterday’s University Senate plenary was packed with action and acronyms. We sent Low Lover Maud Rozee to observe. PrezBo missed the first half of the plenary because he was at an event congratulating donors on the success of the capital campaign. His absence stymied the “Questions for the President” part of the agenda, which is […]
Update (3/27): Full list of buildings with gender neutral bathrooms under the jump.
