The lights have officially been cut from the trees on College Walk. Until, December, friends. Here’s to spring! Speaking of which: Bwog goes on spring break, too. We’ll be posting occasionally for the next week, but expect us back in full swing a week from Monday. Happy travels/sleeps!
A mother escorting her teenaged daughter on a stroll down College Walk. Mother: “Over there is Hamilton—it’s a classroom building. And that’s Butler, the big library.” Daughter: “What’s that?” (points to sundial; they stop) Mother: “That’s where I first met Dad.”
David Hu sent in this picture, showing the newly-decorated trees already illuminated, quite a bit earlier than the proposed date for the tree-lighting ceremony, reported to be 6pm on December 1st. Avoid College Walk if you don’t want the surprise to be ruined!
Maintenance was out early this morning prettying up the trees on College Walk, in preparation for everyone’s favorite holiday ritual: tree lighting!

Demonstrations against the war in Iraq continue today with a walk-out happening right now at the sundial, in the middle of a sea of sunbathers, who have splayed themselves out on South Lawn and and on the Low Steps. Check back for continuing coverage of the walkout plus the rumored “dramatic political statement” occurring at […]
Tipster Kirill Skok informs Bwog that the world-famous 53rd and 6th gyro/rice/pita/chicken, etc. cart is currently parked on College Walk. For those of you eating leavened bread tonight, the cart’s sandwich selections are cheap, delicious, and highly recommended. Be warned: The cart’s been there since 3 PM—you might have noticed the mention of a chicken […]
On the semester’s first Friday the activities fair bestowed unto Bwog the following: One plastic Japanese fan (which was very useful in the foul heat) One pocketful of melted chocolate At least four varieties of baked goods Condoms-a-plenty the Holy Bible One bright yellow gym sack brandished with advertising from Columbia Community Outreach A nice […]
