Starting this Friday (or perhaps starting already, if you’re lucky), you have an entire month to sleep, procrastinate, and sleep more, to recuperate from this crushing semester and prepare for the spring. In the interests of Columbia students taking advantage of the Netflix subscriptions that have been lying unused for the past few weeks, Bwog […]
With the new semester upon us, Bwog takes a look back at winter break. No one seems to be happy on this rainy first day of classes, so we’ve decided to cheer you up! Winter Break was long overdue, but with break came its own challenges: Bwog gives you the rundown on what happened on our […]
As all TV show addicts know, every new episode starts with a brief montage of important clips from the rest of the season, serving as a friendly reminder of all the action that’s taken place so far. For those of you who didn’t keep up CU sports over the break, this kind of recap might […]
New Year’s Eve ball drop? Skating at Rockefeller Center? Going below 96th St? Your magical winter in New York may be jeopardized!

There’s a silence over campus, which will only be punctured by tonight’s Primal Scream. Heads hunched in Butler or in dorm rooms, the collective Columbia population slogs through the start of exam week. Ugh.

Bwog Daily Editor James Downie was procrastinating by… scoping out the 2009 academic calendar. How else? Anyway, bad news: enjoy reading week this semester, because next fall term, there’ll only a “Study Day.” “Oh no!” you say? Oh yes. Exams run from Wednesday to Wednesday, rather than Friday to Friday, meaning that we have just […]
A dreary Sunday in November seems about as good a time as any to remind you that the dates and times of most of your finals have been ironed out, and are now available for your viewing terror on SSOL. In related news, winter break is inordinately long this year, thanks to the serendipitously scheduled […]
If Butler’s claustrophobia and competitiveness isn’t your idea of a great study atmosphere, CQA informs us that the LGBT lounge in the Furnald Basement will be open from three to midnight for Tuesday through Thursday of reading week.
