Last night’s CCSC meeting saw debate over extremely crucial student matters: whether or not to eliminate certain positions (including the ever-controversial Sandwich Ambassador.) Bureau Chief Joe Milholland covered the meeting, but if you want even more CCSC with your CCSC, you can view the stream of the meeting here. The Uneliminated Positions Despite heated debate, […]
Don’t worry, loyal base of commenters and trolls alike, your recognition during the new year and semester wasn’t limited to our birthday post. We are forever grateful to the aesthetic you add to the Bwog experience (re: our attempt at flyering this semester) and are here to present you with some of the best comments your […]

I’m writing you for help picking a class, and also because I’m sure many other CC students would appreciate Bwog’s input as well. I […]

Statisticians: Here are all the sexy details about the rigorous lottery. Pity the first-year […]
Bwog’s received a copy of the list of courses that will count toward the Global Core requirement. The class list still isn’t on the Core website, but thanks to one anxious senior/Bwog staffer, we’re able to reproduce it after the jump for you. Remember: the 12s must complete two courses from this list, while for […]
After picking up on the vaguely changed Major Cultures requirement last week, we inquired with the good folks at the Committee on the Core to figure out what exactly we have to do to get this one out of the way. Profs. Patricia Grieve and Roosevelt Montas (the subject of an interesting profile here) had […]
Remember all that yelling last fall about changing the Major Cultures requirement? About how it was going to change into a seminar using $50 million from the endowment?
