The Armory uptown is probably one of the best, most organized places to get vaccinated in the city. It has tons of appointment slots that open up pretty frequently. It’s also one of the most
Yes, I will miss campus and sitting in rooms learning about all sorts of things with my peers, but there are some things that I’m ready to just say goodbye to.

Housing is coming up, and no, you can’t just avoid thinking about it like you’re avoiding thinking about your Lit Hum paper, Econ problem set, 1004 homework, French presentation…check out what Wien Hall has to offer, and check back tomorrow for another housing review.

Senior Staff Writer and hobbyist hermit Anna Hotter spends 48 hours inside her Wien single. Against all odds, she lives to tell you about it. Last weekend I got pretty sick. I couldn’t talk, move, eat, or do any of my reading, of course. But because I live in a Wien single, aka Prezbo’s walk-in closet, […]
Housing approacheth. And, unless you’re on top of it, it’s probably coming up sooner than you think. Bwog’s got you covered; we’ll be rolling out two housing reviews per day until no residence hall is left un-reviewed. Prepare to get (even more) excited: this year, we’re reviewing Barnard residence halls, too. Reviews for all! Today’s […]
Update: As of 11:56 pm, power is back. At 8:54 pm tonight, Bwog received a tip that the power in Wien had gone out. Skeptical, Bwog checked out of our 18th story EC window to see most lights in Wien on, indicating that the tipster was in error. Around 9:30, we received confirmation from the […]

Tonight’s Valentine’s Day Mixer, hosted by CU Admirers, actually advertises itself as “Wien’s first party,” so that’s not us trying to be funny. We’re just reporting the facts, and the apparent free cupcakes, cookies, and other sweet pink-and-red festooned foods that will be available tonight—along with a shot at true love, if the impassioned event […]

One unfortunate Wienie was devastated upon returning to the communal fridge—rather than the comforting icy delights of Ben & Jerry’s, this Wiener found nothing at all. Not sure we want to think about where that ice cream could possibly have been…
Bwog’s senior science correspondent Ricky Raudales explains all the crazy studies and experiments that Columbian scientists do.

A Bwogger passing by Wien this morning noticed this peculiar new addition to its architecture: the door on the right now has a large crack in its window and is covered in caution tape. One Wiener we spoke to said it wasn’t bad it enough for cold air to seep in, but it is still […]
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 […]
Wieners, rejoice! Your times of woe are over. As far as our sources can tell, the dreaded Wien-wide raid was not conducted. Res Life’s threatening letters effectively dealt with the case of the mysteriously disappearing furniture, and all kitchen and computer lab cushions and chairs have been returned to their rightful place – though perhaps […]
