News Editor Lauren Kahme interviews the Co-Founder of The Testing Project, a grassroots movement advocating for essential workers’ protection during the COVID-19 pandemic.
In case you weren’t aware, there’s a pretty big rainstorm that’s going to hit the northeast this weekend, just in time for NSOP. Bwog has been mystified by the Weather Channel the past few days (Seriously! 24 hours devoted just to weather! What is this madness) and really, the coming Hurricane Irene is no joke. […]
In an apparent effort to jade our incoming 2015 prefrosh before, rather than after, NSOP, Housing has already let down our youngsters. Last year, 14ers got their assignments on July 2nd. This year, Housing only finally released a few today—and then stopped. Predictably, a shitstorm ensued on the 2015 Facebook page. One student posted, “Housing […]

Stories like that are never complete without their conspiracy theorists, however. […]
Classes have begun, and you’re eager to know what your instructors have in store beyond that cute introductory slide lecture. CULPA expert Owain Evans is here to help, writing Bwog to point out what he thought was a suspicious evaluation. “Was this review written by the grad student himself?” he wonders. Bwog can’t say, but […]
