Random Room Search! And We’re Only Kind of Joking

Earlier today Housing Services sent out an email detailing new procedures for fire drills. Apparently, “during these fire drills and any other fire alarm, all students are required by law to exit the building.” Seems straightforward enough. But, in a Dean Wormer-like attempt to put a stop to shenanigans, soon a combination force of people […]

And here Bwog thought that Barack Obama’s victory would satiate campus liberalism for at least a month.

John Updike Has Died.

In case you don’t haunt the Times’ website like Bwog does, a quick (sad) note.    John Updike, American author (and frequent New Yorker contributor), died today at 76.  In light of this tragedy, Bwog provides an original, Smugopedia-style talking point:  “while some consider Updike’s everyday subjects unworthy of his characteristically intricate prose, his novels–the […]

What’s Happened to Study Day, and to ESC

Credit where it’s due: ever since Bwog noted the strange existence of next winter’s Study Day, the student councils have been working to make the best of a bad calendaring situation (the academic calendar that spawned study day was set into place back in the 90s). And now according to CC 2010 VP Sue Yang, […]
