Bwog ranks their classes, D&D-style.

As many of us are deeply entrenched in midterm hell, we at Bwog have decided to look back on the courses we’re taking right now and the courses we have taken throughout our transformative academic voyages at Columbia University in the City of New York. For purposes of contextualization and categorization, Bwog has decided to rank the classes from our past and present with the classic Dungeons and Dragons alignment chart!
