Housing Selection: the rising sophomore slump

UPDATE (12:45 PM): It’s halftime at housing—the process of coming to terms with Wien or the McBain shaft will resume after a lunch break at 1:30 PM. The white board, creature of habit that it is, hasn’t been updated since our last photo. However, according to housing, about four or five groups have come in […]

QuickSpec: Unfortunate

This headline: “Go Ape For The New Version of the Old Mighty Beast” ESC’s claim that since America elected George Bush, democracy is bad. A good urban exploration column ruined by the claim that there are “tar pits” in Queens. And by its eighth paragraph. Oprah branching out into reality TV. A first-year’s need to […]

Check back […]

Remember Tania “Boobilicious Bartender and Greek Life Spy, Official Party Animal #1” Harsono? Well she’s baaack… Bwogger Lucy Tang delves again into the seedy side of 2011.

Lay off the freshwomen

According to multiple sources, next year’s freshmen will get a break–the Panhellenic council has voted to phase out first-year fall rush, since the new girls don’t have time to get used to school and see what greek life is about before signing into sisterhood. In 2007, only sophomores will be allowed to rush in the […]

Observed & Overheard

Two Bwoggers sent in this photo of the mysterious (and large) SOS in the South Lawn snow, taken earlier today from the 7th floor of Hamilton.

Fracas Over Frontiers

The Core has frequently inspired as much acrimony as intellectual curiosity, and no one class has borne so much controversy as the disproportionately-loathed Frontiers of Science. From amid the tepid grumblings of the meekly subjected, however, comes the roar of the freshman class, taking a stand – where else? – on Facebook. Sports, science, and general […]
