We return from our 4th of July break with a round-up of some other stories we received this past week.

Galil became president of the Israeli university in 2007, after twelve years as […]
The 2006-07 school year has contained multitudes. In fact, it may just be the most eventful year Columbia’s had since… well, the year before. Remember Matthew Fox? The Chung-Diamond “scandal”? “Don’t Be a Pussy”? “Epilogue to Our Crime & Punishment: A Petition“? Bwog certainly does, so step into the Wayback machine – you’re about to […]

Well, it happened: Dean Zvi Galil has decided to leave “the best job in the world” and accept the position as President of Tel-Aviv University. Bwog and SEAS are sad.

Every semester, President Bollinger brings about 40 students off the street into his swanky abode at 60 Morningside Drive to find out what’s going on in the collective student consciousness.
