A suite of EC residents awoke on Thursday after 40s on 40 to find that a rude party pooper had entered their suite, defecated in their dishwasher, and vomited in their bathroom. We spoke to Jac Kovarik, one of the residents of the affected suite, about what went down. She said the defecator must have entered […]

About 125 seniors gathered on Low around noon today to honor the time-honored tradition of sippin’ 40s on the Steps forty days before graduation.

Bwog has just gotten word from the CC, SEAS, BC and GS senior class councils that 40s on 40 will not held be this year. The primary reason, according to class council presidents?
