Bwog Daily Editor and White House Bureau Chief James Downie checks in from Virginia, with the College Democrats’ campaign trip. LEESBURG, VA. – Back in the so-called “glory days” of student activism (really?), student campaigners would arrive in an broken-down Eurovan, sleep on hard floors, scrounge for their own food, and build rafts from local…no, […]
Late-night news in “Giant Inflatable Penis-gate,” as the queer community has moved quickly to respond to the controversial editorial published in Wednesday’s Spectator.

The highly anticipated second Presidential debate of the 2008 election commenced mere moments ago.

Also, tonight’s debate from Belmont University in […]
Bwog headed to Roone Cinema this evening ready for our daily dose of lively intellectual discourse, today’s source being the first of three debates between the College Democrats and Republicans on issues pertinent to the upcoming election.

Haven’t seen this one before: Chabad is luring passersby with challah dough, which you can mix with raisins, cinnamon, and chocolate chips to bring home and bake for midafternoon deliciousness. The challah-pushers seemed a little crestfallen to hear that Bwog wasn’t actually Jewish, but we feel sure that Gentiles wouldn’t be turned away. Meanwhile, the […]
Like the candidates’ commitment to service, Bwog’s commitment to free food never wavers. Here are just some of the events this evening for you to fill your stomachs at: Last night’s Jumbotron extravaganza not enough for you?

With the dual force of Obamacain four days from striking campus, student groups and councils are scrambling to inject themselves into the festivities.

They plan to send their outline […]
While the campus prepares for the visit of the two presidential candidates, students have already gotten started on the fall election. the College Democrats, MSA, and Free Culture are co-sponsoring a campus-wide voter registration initiative, modeled on the popular CUAssassins game that every year afflicts students with amusingly high levels of paranoia. Teams of students […]

Another year has passed, and a new passel of eager young reformers have stepped up to the Executive Board of the CU College Dems.

College Walk finds itself abuzz with excitement this afternoon, playing host to an array of colorful happenings. Spring is here to stay, much to the delight of protesters and peddlers. First, as the beat of a conga drum wafts through the air, one finds the ubiquitous trinketry, cheap spring scarfs, and ethnic food of a […]
State Assemblyman confirms what everyone already knows, Morningside Heights is old and has lots of pretty buildings. Iraq activists: Ring my bell, wash my flag. Columbia’s killing cancer. Cool!

The Dems are on the ramps of Lerner, distributing cupcakes to anyone who will sign a petition to lower the price of birth control on campus.

Howard Dean, head of the Democratic National Committee, was invited by the College Democrats to speak in Low Library yesterday on student activism and the current presidential elections. The former governor was one awkward “Yeah!” away from what seemed like a sure Democratic nomination and possibly a four year stay at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Dean, […]
