It is a cold hard fact that students forget what they learned in school over summer vacation…but winter break is shorter and so we must remember more of what we learned, right? Right??
It’s the first Friday of the semester! Take a break from obsessively rearranging your schedule to catch up on global and local news with Bwoglines.
Welcome back from winter break! While the days of relaxing in warm and sunny places or skiing in fresh snow are gone, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy yourself in the city during the winter.
Good morning Columbia! As homework begins to pile up and you realize the semester is actually, really, 100% starting, know that Bwog is here for you when you can’t waste your entire day reading the
Here, Bwog generously provides a closely-held recipe for Russian Tea (which neither comes from Russia nor contains tea), and it’s the perfect Beverage-in-Mug to warm you the hell up.
Even though snow has just barely started falling in Morningside Heights, classes are cancelled at both Columbia and Barnard, thanks to what my Music Hum teacher has referred to as an “unbelievable snow panic.” Rejoice! Sleep in! Bake eggplant parmesan! Catch up on all the homework you didn’t do over break! Barnard bit the bullet […]
If you were up until 3 am in Butler crossing your fingers for a snow day so that you wouldn’t have to take that 8:40 midterm, you were probably disappointed when you woke up to a bare ground. But good news: Barnard and Columbia have now announced that both schools will close at 4 pm today! […]
After claiming in an email Wednesday night that campus would operate as normal through Winter Storm Niko, Columbia has announced that classes will not occur for both Morningside and CU Medical School campuses. The original email from Facilities Executive VP David Greenberg at 8:15 pm, entitled “Winter Storm Niko update,” stated, “At this time, we […]
Dear Alma, And just when you thought Columbia could not get any whiter, Winter Storm Niko loomed its vanilla head. Seriously, Columbia students probably have not been shooken up by this much white nonsense since the Civil War. Tomorrow is but a small sacrifice for our safety and well being. While other New York institutions of higher learning […]
It’s officially finals time which means for the next ~2 weeks we’ll be forgoing Bwoglines in favor of spending a few minutes in bed with you. The weather outside is pretty frightful, which is totally an excuse to not leave your room for the rest of the day. Oh and go ahead and tip more […]
As Winter Wonderland part deux is in session, Columbia Dining hastily makes preparations for the frigid winter. Amidst transporting hot leftovers to starving brunch-goers, someone couldn’t keep up and spilled the beans. As the powdery chaos continues, Bwog can’t help but feel like this snow day is missing something.
Today is a Snow Day! (except for the Business School)! Columbia was apparently mentioned as superior to Kenyon College off-camera on the Daily Show. The MTA is “trying very much” not to increase fares this year. (Gothamist) Hey, you know what’s cool? Meatpacking District nightclubs. (Spec) The Spectator wants to know where it’s going to […]
Bwog loves nothing more than snow. Take a little time out of the day to appreciate its many manifestations of beauty. A slavic languages professor wringing out his hat in front of the elevator: “Oh dear, oh God almighty, I am wet from the snow.” The tables outside of Kent have been overturned… by snowy […]
SNOWBALL FIGHT TONIGHT AT 7:30 With thanks to Jon Hill, Elizabeth Jacob, Mahrah Taufique, Derek Arthur, Matthew Martinez, and Michelle Madejski for the photos
