And we back, bitches! Bwog hopes you had a warm, wet, and wild spring break! Here’s just a little taste of what we were up to… Warm Went to Florida with friends like a cliché college student and got a sunburn the first day like a typical white. Lounged in Vondelpark chain-smoking joints under the […]
We want your Spring Break pictures! Whether you got down in Cabo San Lucas, traversed the streets of Paris, or stayed home, Bwog is invested in your good times and bad.

Welcome back, Columbia! We hope you had a great spring break full of sun, booze, and relaxation! Or, if you stayed in NYC instead, we hope you survived the blizzard and didn’t get too sick of John JJ’s. Either way, time to check back in with today’s Bwoglines.

It is the height of midterm season, and Bwog has to wonder… have you given up? Where is the debauchery, the fuck-it, the decisions to stay out until 3am when your midterm is at 10am the next morning? If the fight is still alive and the war isn’t over, send in your battle plans and […]
Unless you’re one of the unlucky ones who has a lit hum essay due at midnight tomorrow (Mark Lilla, we’re looking at you) or a rescheduled midterm sometime this weekend, Bwog would like to wish you a drunken and unproductive relaxing spring break.
