Disappearing Diana Furniture, Dodge gym becoming unsafe for women, an update on transgender rhetoric on campus, oh my! Gabbi Kloppers, SGA reporter, takes you inside another interesting SGA meeting. Here’s what you missed at SGA: A large part of the meeting was devoted to reflecting on the most recent Town Hall meeting, which was focused […]

Congratulations to the new leaders of the Barnard Class of 2019! We’d like to applaud those who exercised their right to vote, as well as all candidates who ran, some of whom employed pretty creative campaign strategies, (We’re a little disappointed that the girl who gave out roses and cupcakes didn’t win but we also […]
Confused about registering to vote as a Columbia student? Bwog’s democracy correspondent Ali Sawyer reports that it’s easier than you think. We Americans love our rights. At Bwog, we like to stretch the limits of our right to free speech on a daily basis. So why aren’t more college students using their right to vote? […]

Common student complaints on the survey included the extensive crowding of Ferris, especially on the weekends, the lack of takeout in JJs, and confusion […]
Allow us a personal anecdote, gentle reader. A few weeks ago, Bwog was sitting in a tire on the floor of our friend’s mom’s minivan, heading out of town for the weekend with a few friends. We spoke about Bacchanal, and suggested a few artists to our Bacchanal-affiliated-pal in the backseat: NOFX and blink-182, one friend, […]
Freshmen won’t learn about this ’till CC next year, but it’s time to participate in a few time-honored traditions: making fun of fresh-people CCSC candidates, and voting in real-people elections on Primary Day. 2014 CCSC campaigning began about a half hour ago, so expect to see a lot of posters outside the smokers’ benches at […]
