UPDATE (12:45 PM): It’s halftime at housing—the process of coming to terms with Wien or the McBain shaft will resume after a lunch break at 1:30 PM. The white board, creature of habit that it is, hasn’t been updated since our last photo. However, according to housing, about four or five groups have come in […]
Update 1:32 PM: As prospective first-years have long, overwrought conversations about the Core at Low Steps, a spectacle proceeds, ignorant to them, in John Jay Lounge, one that will shake the very bedrock of the school — Day Three of suite selection. Plus the board hasn’t been updated in, like, half an hour. Here’s what’s […]
UPDATE (1:16 PM): Senior selection is over…except for senior re-group. The lounge is closed until 2pm, so here’s the final count. UPDATE (12:25 PM): There are two high demand Woodbridge suites left, but all “H” lines are gone. Per Bwog’s request, housing is now listing Woodbridge rooms by line. Here’s what […]

The white board (as is far too often the case) remains the same, save for a penciled in noticed that there are 11 […]

One Bwog tipster (and probably dozens of other students with decent lottery numbers) received an email from a group calling themselves “Columbia Students.” The email proposed an Old-Timey Barter in which housing lottery numbers would be […]
In case you haven’t already been frantically GChatted by friends, you should know your housing lottery number is now available. What isn’t available, despite the Housing site’s promises to the contrary, is everybody else’s. Begin frantically scrambling to figure out how many people will pick EC suites before you… now! Update: “Daniel”, on the housing […]
We now invite you to leave the relative comforts of Nussbaum and venture northwest to Claremont in our continuing housing series. Also, don’t forget online registration ends in three hours!

Break is drawing to a close, and the housing lottery is fast approaching. Use your last weekday off to acquaint yourself with the next dorm in our 2008 housing series: Nussbaum. You could do a whole lot worse than 600 W. 113th Street, a.k.a. Nussbaum. To begin, Nussbaum’s in a great location – equidistant from […]

Wallach is the kid in class that really isn’t the most interesting or social person but is certainly the one that can be immediately described as “nice.” […]
From Wien to Woodbridge to Ruggles, we’ve explored many on-campus housing options this week.

PRO: Hipsters and $2 Beer Brooklyn! Behind every tenement […]
