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.

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.

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 […]

Ahhhhh Real Housing!

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.
