While these posters are definitely less controversial than those of previous years, we expect the event itself to maintain its usual level of offense. As always, Bwog plans […]
Late last night, Bwog was ushered into the back room of Havana, usually reserved for drunken revelry and awkward hook-ups, for a different sort of party—The 120th Annual Varsity Show’s West End Preview. Although it still had its share of awkward premises and jokes that fell flat, we should note that we’re going to be […]
As per (sort of) tradition, we asked a select few of our favorite people what tops their holiday wish lists. Read on to find out how you can regift that bunny your mom got you again even though you already have like SIX… Deantini wants a 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO, which he says has been what he’s […]

It’s freezing outside, everyone’s getting sick, and finals loom near… which can only mean that it’s time to light up the trees, surround ourselves with song and dance, drink warm drinks and have MiMoo try to make everyone feel happy, sane and loved again! It’s worth braving the cold for some hot cocoa, cider, cookies, […]

Bwog crowded into the mystical back room of Havana Central to see the preview of The 116th Annual Varsity Show. Upon receiving an invitation to a student production, every administrator must blanch with fear.
