With the end of, hopefully, our last online semester comes another edition of Bwog Staff’s favorite running series. Read up on the music that defined our semester while getting vaccinated and practicing social distancing!
This past year has been nothing short of a disaster for many people, but working, learning, and socializing through our computer screens has produced a few silver linings that we’d want to stick around.

Cooped up in the decidedly warm and dry comforts of its dorm room today, Bwog noticed on this most spooky and rainy of autumn afternoons that the jokesters at the Fed have published their third (and equally eerie) issue of the semester.

The highly anticipated second Presidential debate of the 2008 election commenced mere moments ago. Tonight’s affair should prove to be quite the slug-fest, as both camps have turned up the heat with nasty smears and negative ads as of late, with just under thirty days until election day. Also, tonight’s debate from Belmont University in […]
In this whole hubbub about NROTC forums and referenda, the Wall Street Journal has raised its voice once again. Yesterday, in an article centered around future Marine and Junior Austin Byrd, columnist William McGurn said that PrezBo better straighten out his act and grant the ROTC access to Columbia’s campus. After all, McGurn wrote, even […]
A Robyn Schneider for a new generation. Philip Roth makes it big, in Hollywood! Woody Allen makes things beautiful and slightly off-putting, in Barcelona! Standing up to middle school and high school bullies: what you need to know. That time you sat uncomfortably on the Steps yesterday: relive the magic! That time you watched the […]
Today, we received many outstanding photographs of various things like David Gergen and cops on the roof of Butler and Joe Biden befriending a small child on a bicycle. Here is a collection of the day’s special moments. Plus a bonus PhotoShop Contest after the jump! Photo by Jon Hill

World-renowned Service-enthusiast Usher just walked up the Lerner ramps, right in front of your Bwog editor! He was wearing a scarf and sunglasses and was surrounded by many others wearing sunglasses. He was hurried into the piano lounge, but apparently that was the wrong place to go and he was taken to a second mysterious […]
The lottery winning ticket-holders have began to line up at the entrance of Roone. Ha! They have to line-up inside already and the rest of us get to hang around and enjoy this lovely, overcast day. Who’s the lucky one now? Meanwhile, Bwog actually heard a pantsuit-wearing lady say “I just spoke to the White […]
Some of your classmates have already started sitting on the steps, willing to sit there bored, for hours and hours, just to watch Obamacain on the Jumbotron, which your student leaders fought for so valiantly.
