Written by Victoria Arancio
Ready or not, here it comes: the new semester! With the new year comes changes, and Bwog has decided to change up Bwoglines for 2017. Bwoglines will give you a taste of international and NYC news along with interesting events happening on campus.
Happening in the world: A suspect has been captured by the police for being involved in the terrorist attack on New Year’s Day in Istanbul. The attack was responsible for the lives of 39 people. The shooter Abdulgadir Masharipov along with four others were detained by police. ISIL has claimed responsibility for the attack. (Al Jazeera)
Happening in NYC: Governor Andrew Cuomo has proposed new legislation that would take steps towards decriminalizing marijuana. Taking into account data that shows that “recreational users” aren’t dangerous, Cuomo plans to end prosecution against people that carry small amounts of weed. (Washington Times)
Happening on campus: Today marks the first day of the spring semester! If you need a refresher on how to use Courseworks, there will be a workshop in Butler from 12-1:15. (RSVP)
Overheard: “So should we buy Grey Goose or literal potato water?”
Music Pick: Want to get excited for new classes? If there’s one thing that you’ll carry into this semester, take a listen to Chance The Rapper’s recent album, Coloring Book. If you’re looking for something new, try The xx’s I See You album.
