Want to decorate your dorm? Afraid of commitment? Halfway through the semester without doing anything for your room? You’ve come to the right place.
On Wednesday, February 24, the Columbia University School of the Arts held a dialogue with writer and cultural critic Lewis Hyde.

Just when you thought you escaped the woes of Housing over break, they return. Bwog has received word that more dorms next semester will receive free wireless access. Expect this to change some dynamics when it comes to housing selection! Here’s the full list of dorms that will have Wi-Fi starting in the Fall, via […]
There’s nothing to put a damper on SPRING BREAK 2010! like housing trauma. Barnard students can start registering for housing on March 22nd, as in the Monday after spring break. Registration lasts for a week, until the following Monday the 29th. Lottery numbers will be posted the next Monday, April 5th. New for 2010: registration […]
Housing registration ends tomorrow. Freak out now! If you’re doing Suite Selection, Bwog highly recommends you get a move on today- after your group is formed online, there’s a six-hour waiting period for each member to save their friendships, so start early. Remember: if there are any issues with registration, head over to 125 Wallach. […]
Housing: like it or not, it’s here. You’re probably in the throes of registration (and if you are, what are you waiting for! You only have two days left!) and have broken at least two friendships. But don’t worry, Bwog has been there and understands. We’ve delved into the mysterious world of Columbia Housing for […]

For those seeking to escape the pain and suffering of the Columbia Housing lottery, or those who were unable to get into the LLC or Special Interest Housing, there is an alternative – Barnard. Bwog’s very own Sean Zimmermann writes on his experience (figuratively) across Broadway. There’s a lot of chatter about how exactly a […]
Bwog is a champion of the people. We save cats from trees, we give you free food, we defend the lowliest, saddest, most seemingly indefensible parts of our fair campus. We’ve tackled Wien, Famiglias, and the Freshman Fifteen. Just when you thought we couldn’t get any crazier, we tricked you and got crazier! Today, as […]
Housing is confusing. We are Bwog, and we know what’s really good (we learned from Young Joc). We told you how the lottery works, and today we’ll tell you what the Housing website doesn’t about most of the dorms on campus. We didn’t get all of them–mostly ones that people don’t complain about much, like […]
No one ever really explained it to us, so we figured we’d explain it to you, our sweet, sweet readers. Read on for a step-by-step of how the lottery works. In the next few days, we’ll be posting what you should know about every dorm on campus, links to dorm reviews and tips, how to […]
Numerous people have been reporting that the Housing registration application that went live today seems to be broken. Students have been experiencing various technical errors, such as not being able to log in (“Either your session has timed out or you are not currently logged in”) or not being able to submit the actual application […]
For the ones amongst us that are not inclined to live and learn at the same time, the most socially stressful and awkward process of the year officially begins today: the Room Selection process. Housing just sent out an email alerting students that Room Selection Registration starts today at 5 pm and continues until March […]
The LLC hopefuls heard this afternoon from Scott Helfrich, the Associate Director of Residential Programs. Those who like sprawling kitchens and want to emulate Jack Kerouac applied early to live in Hartley and Wallach, presenting recommendations from their RAs. Those lucky enough to have been allotted their first choice now avoid the stress and uncertainty […]
The rumors are both true and false, we guess: gender neutral housing will not be an option for the 2010-2011 housing year. Bwog chatted with Sean Udell, VP of CC 2011 and Treasurer of CQA, about the decision from the deans, and what the plan is going forward. While the decision to not allow gender […]
With the news that Columbia will be permanently adding 50 students to the College, Bwog has been wondering where, exactly, they’ll be putting everyone. Last week, Columbia announced that a new brownstone will be available for undergraduate suite selection this year. 548 W. 113th Street is a cozy, eight-room building nestled between the sororities and […]
