In light of the hits and misses Bwog witnessed over the holiday, we have some recommendations for next year for those seeking their lovers’ favor.
Bwog’s Nutella Hot Chocolate is the ideal recipe to comfort you through your “we’re not even halfway through the semester”-slump.
Guest Bwoggers and Barnard first-years Elena Christenfeld, Yuki Adams, and Sylvia Riordan have been living it up in a forced triple (aka a double that three people are shoved into). They offer suggestions of how you too can make the most of a cramped situation.
Bwog Writer Lexie Lehmann saw a sick snapchat of Hannah Kline (CC ’20)’s beautiful John Jay single and knew that Bwog had to write about it. Read about Hannah’s decor inspiration and see more of this impeccable room below! What was your inspiration when designing your room? Color and comfort. I really wanted a room […]
Why leave campus, or even your dorm, to go to a gallery, when you could have an art exhibit in your own bedroom? Metro fare and energy aren’t required to revel in the beauty of Bianca Rico’s (BC ’19) 3D art installation vivifying her 600 double. Senior Staffer Sarah Dahl has the scoop. Bianca has […]
This week is the perfect time to make your prison dorm room into a comfy home for the year, and we’re bringing back our RoomHop feature to see how Columbia students have been decking their halls. To inspire you to reach you aesthetic potential, Barnard Babe Courtney Couillard chatted with Victoria Martinez, BC ’18, about her […]
Libby Kandel and Christina Clark, aka Bwog’s kangaroos of room-hopping, went to get the story behind the intriguingly bare room of a John Jay resident. “Did you just get robbed?” would be an appropriate question when you walk into the room of Resident X* on John Jay 13. He’ll shrug his shoulders and say, “I […]
Video Editor and décor correspondent Anna Hotter goes to discover the maybe classiest room at Columbia. If you are the kind of person who has thought seriously about getting a wine rack, this might just be the inspiration you need. When you walk into the Broadway single of Alex, CC ’16, you feel like you just […]
Bwog took a trip to the LLC on the rumor that a simple single had been converted into a castle. And indeed, the rumors were true. As always, if you find a room that you think should be hopped, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org Rienzi Gokea has a creative soul, but he decided to take the […]
“The government may be shutdown, but the Bro Chateau isn’t!” Bwog recently made a couple of weekend visits to the Bro Château, a popular EC townhouse which is becoming known for its themed get-togethers. As always, if you find a room that you think should be hopped, send it to email@example.com. Their most recent event, […]
Bwog decided to revisit days of study abroad programs past and sent resident culture arbiter Alexander Pines to RoomHop Emily Hyatt’s (CC’14) beautiful, villa inspired EC Townhouse single. “Basically everyone thinks I have a gay Pace University flag,” Emily says when I walk in, indicating a slightly singed rainbow flag with “PACE” (pronounced pah-ché) […]
This weekend, Teen Vogue gave one lucky Barnard First-Year the chance to show off her stylish digs with their version of a Roomhop. In the article, Gabby Noone talks about cost-effective ways to be a hip, 60’s inspired, girl in the city. Noone’s room is furnished primarily by knick-knacks she has found at little boutiques, […]
Bwog caught wind of a mysterious room in Barnard’s Hewitt Hall. Extravagance Expert Maud Rozee and lucky resident Linda Crowley, BC’15, present the deets on this sweet crib. From the outside, Linda Crowley’s room looks like any other Hewitt single. Once inside her bizarre pastel fuschia door, however, I felt as if I’d entered the […]
Sparsely decorated and warmly lit with incandescent bulbs he installed himself, JG’s Woodbridge room is nice enough to look at. But it’s not what’s in the room that caught Bwog’s attention; it’s what’s notably absent—namely, the Internet. Unlike the rest of Columbia’s Gmail-addicted, Twitter-happy student population, JG, CC ’14, prefers to minimize his use of […]
We sent Bwog’s decoration devotee Roberta Barnett to check out Columbia’s own North Pole in EC. She wasn’t disappointed with her findings: It’s finals holiday season, and the days (and nights in Butler) are full of warmth and brightness and clichés! For those of us who haven’t stopped studying except maybe to check Bwog, shower, […]
Walk into Katie Wolf’s and Sasha DiGiulian’s Wallach double, and you might ask why exactly their room is even being “hopped.” It’s pretty college typical: brightly colored sheets, desk lamps, some artwork, and (only a little) mess. Upon closer inspection, though, it’s clear the two aren’t the room’s only inhabitants. Along with Sasha and Katie, […]
Bwog’s Zealous Hopper Zachary Hendrickson shows us the inside of not the most unbecoming of abodes in this RoomHop. Classy as ****! That is what immediately enters your mind when you step into Harry Stephenson’s elegant abode in the Sigma Nu house. Harry, CC ’14, plans on studying sociology and possibly concentrating in art history. […]
