Bwog received several tips that a water pipe burst in JJ’s Place, leaking about an inch of water into the kitchen area. The manager reportedly yelled that people shouldn’t touch wires.

The CU Elections Board has announced not one, but two rules violations during the recent elections cycle.

BREAKING we just received the following anonymous tip: Sex in the stacks. Butler. Level 10. Red-headed girl. Moaning (in a slightly high-pitched voice). Happening now. And a follow-up: Hi, you aren’t going to believe this (or maybe you will… It’s finals season) but I was finishing up my paper in the Butler stacks and saw/heard a […]
A tipster who can now consider herself the poet laureate of Bwog’s soul just sent us a way too accurate description of Columbia student’s lives right now: Write a sentence. Eat some food.
