At the last Bwog meeting, we asked who wanted to review Orgo Night. Elizabeth Self asked “What’s Orgo Night?” We responded, “Don’t worry about it just show up to Butler 209 at 11:30 pm.” So for you this semester we have two accounts of Orgo Night: from an Orgo virgin and a more, uh, experienced […]
And oh what a rollicking weekend it was. There was definitely something in the air this week as people everywhere went hog wild and got up to some serious hoodrat shit. Ah yes, nightlife Last Lerner Pub of the semester was last night; pretty empty but not Senior-Night-at-Pourhouse status. Plus it was nice not having to […]
Last night, we wrote that a USenate position had been vacated and people can apply.
