Who said that you had to be cuffed to have fun at Tree Lighting? (read: society)
Bwogger Andrew Chee brings you this almost offensively-concise summary of GSSC. General Studies Student Council meets on Tuesdays at 8:15 pm in the Jed Satow Room in Lerner Hall. You know those friends who are incredibly drama-free and super reliable? Yeah, hanging out with them is always good vibes, even though juicy drama is […]
Though the weather outside may feel more like the beginning of Fall than Winter, December has officially begun, and with that comes Columbia’s annual Tree Lighting Ceremony! The ceremony, which is jointly hosted by CCSC, SGA, GSSC, and ESC, will begin at 6 p.m. on College Walk, but there will be cider, hot chocolate, and […]
This week’s meeting seemed to be all about money for CCSC. With new co-sponsorships coming in, the debate team asking for travel funding, and the Food Bank extending a partnership invitation, CCSC had some important financial decisions on the table. Michael Haggins, head of the Food Bank, proposed a partnership to the board. He explained […]
There were several students at the SGA meeting last night looking to have their voices heard, far more than I have ever seen at SGA before (usually it’s just Spec and me….). The floor opened with several students voicing their concerns about Barnard students’ new ineligibility for the pre-NSOP CUE initiative. The students wondered how all four […]

During the tree-lighting ceremony last Thursday on College Walk, our darn-diddley Dean added to the College’s finals-burden by announcing a little extra-curricular pop quiz. Though the quiz is merely a pesky distraction for our more SEAS-minded peers, Bwog is skittish (and uncomfortably reminded of consulting interviews). The Dean, however, says it’s something technical yet accessible. […]
The annual tree-lighting ceremony was yesterday evening, and for those of you who missed it, sassy cider-sipper Julia Goodman was on the scene. Last night, we got a pleasant reminder that the holidays are quickly approaching. Taking a break from rabid finals studying, I joined what looked to be the majority of the student population […]
