While the study breaks during reading week are incredibly helpful and supportive, at times they can look similar – many of them featuring some classic variation of cookies and hot chocolate. We here at Bwog want to see some study breaks get weird. Here are our suggestions: 1) Columbia time-management-chart-themed study break. This study break […]
As part of ESC and CCSC’s Lerner Hall Study Hall (apparently they’re fans of redundancy), your buddies over at Bwog are hosting a study break tonight at midnight in the West Ramp Lounge (follow the noise). In addition to the classic foods and things, we’ll have a microphone for you to Air Your Grievances about anything—finals, […]
There are some things money can’t buy. For everything else, there’s CCSC to allocate funds ‘n stuff (and Joseph Milholland to tell us all about it).

Some of Columbia’s more unorthodox study break tactics—including the biannual Primal Scream and therapy dogs bringing furry comfort—were chronicled in a spot on various schools’ stress relief methods. (NYT) In more somber news, be careful with the late-night antics when there’s a 13-minute wait at the […]
It’s finals! You’re hungry. Like, prehistoric hungry. Not sure what that means? Find out at the last Live at Lerner of the semester from 12 to 2 pm in Lerner Piano Lounge.

Friends, ’tis the season to be seasonal. After taking in yesterday’s picturesque glories, the CC 2013 class council thought they’d keep up the momentum with an autumnal event of their own. They’ll be stationed outside of Butler at 6 pm this evening with plenty of free apple cider to keep you hydrated during your requisite Butler break. Bask […]
Most people like to eat. Most people do not like to spend money (see: free food tips). One such lover of all foods free and monies unspent has made herself known to us, and we harassed her so much that she finally agreed to assess the quality, quantity, and pizazz of free food events around campus.
