Here at Bwog, we do our best to bring your attention to important guest lecturers and special events on campus. If you notice any events excluded from our calendar or have a correction, let us know in the comments or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Check out Bwog’s event’s calendar, which will attempt to compile every campus event across departments and student groups into one easily accessible Google Calendar! We’re still working out some technical difficulties on our end, but if you have any suggestions, issues, or want to make sure your event is included, drop us a line in the comments or by emailing email@example.com.
