It may be SAD season, but CCSC isn’t deterred. Nadra Rahman reports from the field. In CCSC’s third meeting of the year, the body moves past setting the tone and starts making big moves—like funding a schoolwide farmshare, co-sponsoring an upcoming event by the Food Pantry, and having animated back-and-forth about NSOP. Icebreaker CCSC started […]

ESC met last night to do their ESC thing. We can only speculate that SEAS puns abounded… We also sent energetic engineer Aparajita Maitra to get the actual facts. It’s that time of the week again. With elections approaching, ESC is back from spring break and in full swing. Yesterday’s ESC meeting began with a very […]
With election season coming up and midterms finally coming to obliterate our petty souls make us waste our time in Butler, it looks like CCSC is looking at how we’re doing. Conversations about CSA were had in depth and it turns out that our workload is the same as MIT’s and CalTech’s. Yay liberal arts! Thankfully, […]
It’s the second week of school and while you’ve changed your major for the fifth time or taken up printmaking, your highly accomplished peers of the CSA Peer Advising Program have decided to help freshmen avoid the same mistakes you’ve made. Bwog sat down with Phillip Fletcher (CC ‘13) and Amanda Suarez (CC ‘14) to […]

Update, 12:16 pm: CSA extended the deadline to the 30th. Students only have four days (until March 22nd) to apply to be a CSA Peer Adviser.

Earlier this week, we introduced The Scrounger. This determined moocher is a devotée of Bwog’s free food announcements, and now reports back on CSA’s Cuban cuisine.

Since Lerner Hall flung open its perplexing glass doors in 1999, students have complained that for a student center, there is little space in the building for student activities, except perhaps for the occasional pianist trickling out “Claire de Lune.” Space reservation headaches aside, much of Lerner is used for administrative purposes.
