ID Section of Lit Hum Final Leaked, Not Included in Final Score

Dear readers, we wish we were lying. We were intending to take today lightly, give everyone some space to breathe, give you fun things to watch and read, maybe talk about puppies coming to campus (more on that in a later post). Instead, however, we’ve been informed that this fine university possibly has another widespread cheating […]

Though lost to history, we are working to bring you whatever we can from the May issue of The Blue & White. Here, Allie Curry explains how we are able to read things not written in English, even though we won’t pay for the convenience. The headline of a 2003 New York Times piece on […]

Learn Your Limericks!

Bwog shines equally favorably on all cretins of the Core. We did it for CC, and oh, okay, since you insist, Lit Hum gets a bone too. Way back when, a few Bwoggers converted several thousands of pages of reading into limericks—the perfect size for you to memorize in between a breakfast of Red Bull and […]

Free Food and Knowledge This Week in Furnald

Update, 12:33 pm: The event is well underway. There are indeed milk and cookies, but the atmosphere is less than convivial and certainly not conducive to munching. Fifty first-years huddle around a teacher, who said to the silent, scribbling students, “Okay, now construct a thesis to go along with these points.” Bwog knows how this sounds—but […]

With the help of a […]

Classroom Courtesy: A Primer

It’s the first day of school, folks! Savor the crackling sound of creasing book binds and the strong scent of newly sharpened pencils. Freshpeople, Bwog can’t believe you kids are already starting classes. It was only last week you were loading taxidermy rodents into your blue bins. After a week- long orientation, get ready to […]

Lit Hum Lecture One: Orlando Bloom’s Glistening Abs

When 2 o’clock rolled around today, it was finally time for the Class of 2014 to close the Iliad (or at the very least close the Sparknotes tab in their browsers), and trudge off to the Literature Humanities lecture with Professor Christia Mercer. Emma Stein, CC ’14, was on hand to share the fun with […]

Your NSOP 2010 Theme: The Odyssey

NSOP schedules aren’t released till tomorrow, but Bwog’s been tipped that the 2010 Orientation theme is the Odyssey.

We wait with bated breath for the activities […]
