Dear Professors, We hear you. Sometimes we under-hear you (read: 9 a.m. class), but when we’re very lucky, we overhear you! And not just while you’re weighing in on important international issues; we also hear those cavalier comments you improvise in lecture.

Imposters are taking over! It seems that we’re not the only ones with fake—or real—teacher twitters. See, @LEE_BOLLINGER? You’re not #AllAlone. (NYT) The rats are taking over! The TV screen, that is.

I’m an unarmed maverick.” Ovidiu Savin, Calculus III […]

Have you ever noticed how time seems to run so much more slowly when you’re not drinking 9 cups of coffee a day and putting half of that energy into being passively aggressive? Bwoglines leisurely returns with a first installment: a feast of not-strictly-topical links, and context—something we all wish we had more time for. […]

And so it ends—not with a bang, but with a whimper—the last semester of the first decade of the new millennium. And if you needed more roundabout and somewhat forced catharsis than that, we asked for your professors’ closing remarks, and here is a collection of the most outstanding. Feel free to leave any we […]

Today is the last day of class. Nuggets, CULPA and otherwise, abound! As per tradition, at the end of the semester we want to hear your professor’s closing remarks. Your professors will say something (they read Bwog! they know what’s up). If it’s mundane/erotic/humorous or pithy in any form, pass it on to tips@bwog.com, or […]
