Hold fast to your fading freedom with this submission from Jacqueline Basulto, who is “studying marine biology off of the coast of Ischia, Italy and living on […]

Senior Wisdom: Meriam Raouf

For the second Senior Wisdom of the day we present Meriam Raouf, who takes “30 words or fewer” literally and “one thing to do” less so.

They Say It’s Our Birthday

Seven lucky years ago, Bwog emerged from a womb of coding to shake things up and bring smart opinions on relevant and important discussions.  We’ve had our fair share of growing pains, both big and significant as well as kind of ridiculous.  Bwog definitely has loads more growth to go through, but at least now we […]

Six Years Ago to the Day

Bwog was born out of remedial html coding and ramblings about Russian art. Life was never very easy in the beginning. Spec was curious, Gawker didn’t want to play nice, and Bwog tried to be the big kid on the playground. Since then, Bwog kind of grew up, but never at heart. There has been a […]

Why are you guys in there on a Saturday?” Burned. Safety via Wikimedia Commons

Overheard: Back 2 School Edition

As of right now, they’re still saying, “Hi,” to everyone they see. Keep your ears open, because freshpeople are a feast of audible delights: Mingling on the John Jay green: “I’m pretty sure that every time I’ve had champagne at Christmas it was just sparkling grape juice.” “There’s also prosecco, that’s Italian” Group of youngish […]

This Revolution Was Tweeted

Not content to go quietly, the Class of 2011 had an unofficial post-graduation rager last night. The party started as a flash mob on IAB 15, but Public Safety soon stopped by for old time’s sake. During their attempt to kick students out of IAB, tipsters tell us it was a pretty rowdy time: A […]

Primal Scream Redux

Gallant procrastinators, clashing in epic, fluffy battle, stormed across the Butler median last night. The annual Sundial v. Butler bash had a more dubious commencement than usual because of the unclear Facebook event start time. A handful of freshmen began fighting around 11:30, but then quickly left––their school spirit forever tarnished… Thus, one can conclude, […]

It’s Our Birthday!

8:41 PM, January 30th 2006, five years ago today: Someone at NASA collected the first comet dust. Nelly bragged about his dental swag on someone’s stereo. Someone celebrated Mozart’s 250th birthday three days late, while someone else bought a plane ticket to Italy for the upcoming Olympics. The stage was set for the Bwog’s inception, […]
