Rejoice! Appointment times for In-Person Selection have been revealed! Or at least, that’s what we assume from the email we got from Housing, because StarRez Portal is, as usual, having a meltdown. This number doesn’t tell you much–other than if you have an excuse to skip class or need to wake up stupid early. Remember to assign a “proxy” (this could be someone in your group) if you really can’t make it to the appointment.
We’ll see you next week in John Jay Lounge with music, candy, hugs, and invasive questions for our liveblog. If you have any questions, feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org

Just like this
In case you haven’t heard (read: you haven’t heard, but) registration opens tomorrow for the 2013 housing process. In preparation for this, we boiled down the housing process as concisely as we could to help you understand WTF anything is. Please feel free to ask further questions in the comments–and upperclassmen, please share wisdom–or email us at email@example.com.
Of note: The traditional “Suite Selection” has been retitled “In-Person Group Selection” while “General Selection” is now “Online Selection.” Literal naming–wordy but effective!

Keep dreaming, folks.
As per tradition, every week we at Bwog leave our meeting at the SGO every Sunday and go straight to Butler. You’d think we’d be studying, but we’re just annoying everyone who is.
This week, we covered the issue that is(n’t) on everyone’s mind: housing. We asked, “Housing selection starts in 3 days. How do you feel about that?” Here are some of our responses.

The battle begins
Prepare yourself for battle — Housing Selection 2013 approaches! The only time when you can observe the entire range of human emotion (from hopeless weeping to ecstatic joy) without ever having to go farther than the John Jay Lounge. The epic journey starts today with a Room Selection Information Session at 6 p.m. in the John Jay Lounge. Housing will attempt to explain the process from start to finish (not possible, no one can ever truly understand Housing) and answer any questions you may have (too many questions for one session). Building Tours start next Wednesday, February 27 from 8 to 9:30 p.m.

Realistic depiction of how no elevators look at 4 am on a Saturday
If you and 20ish of your closest friends have always dreamed of having a giant common room/basement/stairwell to call your own, the time has finally come to put yourselves at the mercy of the Brownstone Committee. Applications to live in the space for the 2013-2014 school year are officially open.
These brownstones, formerly occupied by frats that lost housing after Operation Ivy League, were open to General and Suite Selection for the upcoming 2012-2013 year. But starting this Fall, the Committee will screen applications and decide who gets to call each brownstone home for the following school year. The team is led by Dean Martinez, and includes students from CC and SEAS.
For more details and the application link, check out the Student Affairs site.
