Our Editor-in-Chief reflects on his room over the past year.
The style of John Jay, the atmosphere of Furnald, and a sprinkle of unique Wallach wiggles.
An objective assessment of various groups of three at Columbia.
Class of 2026, read up!
We know you’ve all thought it. Which dorm your current hookup lives in says a lot about his relative sadboy- or fuckboy-ness. Whether he’s a Carman athlete, a Furnald poet, or a Wein loner, the stereotypes hold true more often than not. After all, what’s a stereotype without a little bit of truth? Read on for […]
Columbia students really aren’t the best with maps. Whether we’re trying to figure out how Barnard works or asking international students for their images of America’s downfall, we’re learning at Bwog that you should probably have a map handy wherever you go instead of trying to remember it yourself. In this edition, we ask CC […]
To further honor the newly accepted class of 2018, Bwog is rolling out reviews of the freshman dorms on campus considering you kiddos need to pick where you want to live soon. Whether you prefer living in the same building as John Jay, or stay true to your love for Carman because it doesn’t get better, we’re sure […]
On September 28th we received a tip from a heated Wallach resident who had been on the 9th floor of Wallach when a fire alarm didn’t sound. Now, we know that sounds like great news. Fire alarms go off on this campus so often that a solid few days without an alarm is kind of like […]
Join the staff and residents of the LLC for a winemaking workshop this evening from 5 to 7 pm in the lobby of Wallach. Grapes from local vineyards will be on hand for your stomping pleasure, and a sommelier will lead a tasting of California reds. An RA tipster promises, “there’ll be plenty left over […]
The Core, it has been said, is good for cocktail party chatter and not much else. You’ll be able to schmooze with people about Woolfe and iambic pentameter, yadda yadda. This post supplements the rather specific knowledge Columbia bestows on you (hey, no snark alert: we kind of love the Core) with some genuinely useless […]
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 […]
Wallach floods again! Here’s a view from the stairwell, which looks sort of like all the worst horror movies ever morphed into one. Help!
A visitor to the Livin’n’Learnin’ Center noticed something odd about a new poster welcoming students to Wallach 5. The floor’s new poster is ostensibly intended to help residents get to know New York by introducing them to all tha Big Applez‘ ethnic enclaves. You know, like the Upper West Side. The poster highlights neighborhoods across […]
Housing buzz began this afternoon in earnest when prospective Living-Learning Center residents were emailed acceptance and rejection letters from Scott Helfrich, the Associate Director of Residential Programs. Helfrich, the man who determines the fates of rising sophomores determined not to end up in the McBain shaft and a few juniors and seniors who presumably just […]
Bwog contributor Alex Weinberg just frantically passed along the following tip: “There is a huge amount of ice cream in the Wallach Lounge and they are begging people to come eat it or steal it. I walked away with a box of ice cream sandwiches. TIME IS TICKING” And for those of you who foolishly […]
