It’s our last Senior Wisdom of the year, and we couldn’t think of a better way we’d want to go out than with our former Editor-in-Chief. She talks about St. Augustine, Hungarian Pastry Shop, and Infinite Jest – we’re not surprised. But she also has some wonderful words of advice to leave you all with. […]
Joseph Powers – known to many as Bwog’s former Internal Editor (or, Bwog Dad), and to many others as the guy who wrote that weird deer overseen a couple of years ago – discusses posts that probably shouldn’t have been published and experiences with math TAs that should. (If some of this advice sounds like […]

Who can spout heartfelt advice, list types of cheese, and talk about working for Google – almost all in one breath? Why, Dan, of course. SEAS Senior Dan Schlosser is getting ready to leave this place, and this “Masshole” has some wisdom to share. Name, School, Major, Hometown: Dan Schlosser, SEAS, Computer Science with a minor […]
Minus this very interesting photo, we know how talented, subtle, and composed Benjamin Kornick is. Which is why we gave him a senior wisdom. So that now, the world will, too.
