This semester, Butler displayed the names of 8 Black, Indigenous and other women of color (BIWOC) writers to honor the 30th anniversary of the original protest of the all-male lineup that graces the facade. In
Bwogger and SoCal resident Nicki Camberg has some questions, namely: what are duck boots? What is she supposed to do when it snows? Is sledding an actual thing? These aren’t rhetorical please help her.
In an attempt to bring pictures that aren’t from Shutterstock or Wikimedia Commons Actual Photography, we sent Features Editor Alexander Pines into the snow to document yesterday’s snow (and to motivate you to up your Snapchat/cover photo/emails to Mom game).

All students are asked to […]
In case you weren’t aware, there’s a pretty big rainstorm that’s going to hit the northeast this weekend, just in time for NSOP.

Snowicane? Cataclyzzard? Nor’Easter II, Electric Boogaloo? Call it whatever you like–just as back-to-back 40-degree days earlier this week led to tantalizing thoughts about warm weather, it looks like we’re gonna get dumped on. Again. The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning in effect from 6am Thursday until 6pm Friday. We’re told to […]
It says here that we’re in for a boatload of snow tomorrow–anywhere from 8-12 inches. JTS and Teachers College will be closed tomorrow, but you can chalk that up to their high percentage of commuting students and faculty.
