They don't want you to enjoy the sun.

They don’t want you to enjoy the sun.

It’s finally warm, and Columbia noticed. Yesterday was filled with Powwow, the continuation of the Divest protest, and outdoor merriment on the lawns. Birkenstocks abound, sunglasses were everywhere, and some people even broke out their rompers. We get it, Columbia. You haven’t seen sun since last semester (or maybe since Bacchanal, but who can remember that). And we’re right there with ya… which is why we’re having our meeting outside today! See you on the lawns at 7pm sharp to talk pitches, posts, and PrezBo. (Just kidding. As much as we love the sun, we’ll be in Lerner 505 again. As usual.)

What a happy fam.

What a happy fam.

Today, April 10, is National Sibling Day! Founded by native New Yorker, Claudia Evart in 1995, this day is meant to celebrate siblings. In honor of today, we’ve decided that you should bring your siblings to the Bwog meeting tonight! But not just blood relatives, bring siblings of all kinds with you – be it biological brothers, sorority sisters, your closest friends, or your weirdest acquaintances. We wanna meet ’em all, at 7pm in Lerner 505 tonight. See you there!

Honestly one of the most terrifying things ever.

Honestly one of the most terrifying things ever.

Happy Easter! Did you know that Easter was today? You probably did (although some of us did not). Whether you’ll be celebrating Jesus Christ, or chocolate bunnies, or anything in between, come join us at the Bwog meeting tonight! We’ll be in Lerner 505 at 7pm throwing around some pitches for the upcoming week and eating lots of peeps. See you there!

This could be us...but you owe me money.

Don’t you wanna hang with the cool kids??

Did your friends do something fun without you this weekend? Try that new brunch spot you’ve been eyeing? Happy hour in Harlem? Karaoke in Koreatown? Do you have a bad case of FOMO? Come cure that FOMO with some people who will never let you down! In Lerner 505 at 7pm, we’ll be serving up snacks, jokes, and pitches for the upcoming week. Be there or be square… or sit in your room and feel left out. Up to you!

Big Pink Hear

From us to you

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone! Or, if you prioritize your platonic relationships over all else, happy belated Galentine’s Day! Either way, we at Bwog are excited to celebrate with cookies, pitches, jokes, and plans for the upcoming week. Meet us in Lerner 505 at 7pm to join in the festivities. Bring your significant other if you so desire! If you’re single, come and meet your future love interest! Or just chill with us and we can dish about what we all did for this special, romantic occasion.

Zamn, Zaddy.

Zamn, Zaddy.

In an in-depth analysis of Zayn’s new single, we’ve discovered that he may have been singing about none other than Bwog itself. See for yourself.

 

Climb on (the executive) board. We’ll go slow (with the pitches, so you can keep up).

So we’ll piss off the neighbors (aka everyone else in SGO, because we’re always louder than their club meetings are).

The place to lose your fears (of pitching risky articles, because we always love them)

Yeah, reckless behavior (see also: DWB)

A place that is so pure, so dirty and raw (this line just speaks for itself, if we’re being honest)

It’s a paradise and it’s a war zone (never has a more accurate description of Bwog been articulated, thank you, Zayn).

 

In all seriousness, come through tonight! See you at 7pm in SGO, Lerner 505.

*soulja boy voice* YOUUUUUUU

Bwog’s second meeting of the semester is tonight! You might be thinking to yourself, What’s so special about the second meeting? It’s not the first, so what’s the big deal? Also, how has a week of the semester already gone by? Also, why is time passing so quickly? How is it that my life seems to be passing me by? Why is time so fleeting? Will I ever find true happiness?

Now, please, take a break from your mini existential crisis, and return your attention to this post. In the words of that annoying kid who sang nursery rhymes, “First is the worst, second is the best!” For once, that kid tells the truth. The first meeting of the semester was the worst, because it didn’t have YOU in it! That’s right, readers, tonight is your chance to join Bwog and see what all the fuss is about. Tonight is the first open meeting of two! So if you reeeeeeeeally can’t make it tonight, come next Sunday! For all those who missed the first Bwog recruitment post… you should really just go read that because it will tell you But if you’re really to lazy to go back and read it, here are the logistics – what we’re looking for and what you need to know:

  • We’re currently looking for one new Daily Editor for the spring semester. A highly coveted Bwog job, dailies are responsible for running Bwog one day per week, editing and formatting all posts, writing short posts if necessary, and occasionally screaming quietly when people forget to meet their post deadlines.
  • We also have open positions available for Staff Writers! This position is a bit less responsibility and involves regularly writing posts on a vaguely-campus-related topic of your choosing.
  • If a cool title is what you’re after, you can also apply to be a Bureau Chief for SGA, ESC, or GSSC. These positions involve attending and covering one bureau meeting each week.
  • If you’re interested in any of those positions, fill out the application at the bottom of this post and email it to board@bwog.com by 11:59pm on Tuesday, January 26th. Email any questions to tips@bwog.com.

Aaaaaaand for all those current Bwoggers out there: bring your friends, bring your kids, bring your wife! We’ll be in Lerner 505 at 7pm on the dot, waiting with snacks and open arms for our new friends.

A professional goodbye, no tears involved.

A professional goodbye, no tears involved.

Well, folks, this is it. The last meeting of the semester. Someone bring the Kleenex. But it’s not all bad news. This means Winter Break, and going home for the holidays, and time spent with friends and family! We’ll miss you all, but Bwog will still be here when you return.

Be sure to come to Lerner 505 at 7pm tonight to say your goodbyes. We’ll be the ones crying into our laptops. Time to invest in a keyboard protector.

Lately it seems as though every Facebook event has been advertised as a study break:

“Insomnia cookie study break!”

“Yoga relaxation session for finals”

“Panhellenic study break”

“Take a break, watch the debate!”

Well, here’s one more for you: Take a study break with Bwog tonight! Put down that textbook for an hour. Turn off that computer. And come to Lerner 505 at 7pm tonight, for jokes, snacks, and absolutely no talk of tests. We promise that we won’t discuss finals, imminent as they may be.

We won't let another minute go to waste.

We won’t let another minute go to waste.

Well folks, midterms are finally upon us. No, wait. Midterms were upon us last week. And the week before. Some of us even had midterms the week before that. What’s the deal with midterms, anyway? They seem to last forever.

Why they’re still called “midterms,” we’ll never know. Spoiler alert: midterms are really just tests. So, in the wise words of man/myth/legend Jesse McCartney, “Don’t stress, don’t stress, don’t stress. You deserve nothin’ but the best.” And what could be better than Bwog? Bring your pitches to the meeting tonight at 7pm in Lerner 505 – there’ll be snacks, laughs, and at least a few fellow Jesse fans. After all, who can forget that beautiful soul? Or, more importantly, that beautiful face?

It's about to get real.

It’s about to get real.

We know it’s been family weekend these past couple of days. Hope y’all had some good, clean, wholesome fun! Because now it’s time for Bwog. And you know us, we tend to get a little unseemly. So maybe don’t tell your parents to tag along tonight? If you’re lucky, they’ve already kissed you goodbye and headed off in a taxi, back to that hometown you miss so much. If you’re already missing those ‘rents, we’re here as a shoulder to cry on. Or if, on the other hand, you couldn’t wait to see them go, you’re in good company. Come on over to Lerner 505 tonight at 7pm. We’ll provide the snacks, and although they may not taste like Mom’s home cooked meals, we’ll do our best.

Don't disappoint Aubrey.

Don’t disappoint Aubrey.

(Sung to the tune of… well, you’ll figure it out.)

You used to come to Bwog on Sunday’s.

Late night when you need our snacks.

Come to Bwog on Sunday’s.

Late night when you need our jokes.

And we know that come 7pm, you’ll slide into our DMs.

You’ll show up in Lerner 505, what a time to be alive.

Ever since the meetings started you

Been wanting to come hang out

Everybody knows and you feel left out

Don’t get us down, don’t get us stressed out.

 

…Come thru! Drake will be happy, and so will we. See you tonight!

Do it for Nicki.

Do it for Nicki.

Nicki Minaj has consistently expressed her desire for young adults – for young women in particular – to stay in school. What she hasn’t yet expressed is her desire for you to come to the Bwog Meeting tonight. But make no mistake, we know she wants you to. She’d obviously encourage it; after all, why wouldn’t she want you to come? Good people, good snacks, good jokes. If you don’t want to miss out on an event that the queen of rap would approve of, come to Lerner 505 at 7pm sharp. And we do mean sharp. Sharp like Nicki’s winged eyeliner.
