I can pretty much guarantee you that no matter what college you go to, it will have a college blog. College blogs can hold many different functions: they announce campus events, talk about student projects and endeavors, and keep up on alumni happenings. A lot of times, they also cover college news as it pertains to their school on a larger scale.

The Week in College Blog News:

Columbia University’s Bwog defends “traditional” spring break and jokes about the Midterms Power Hour.

Mads Vassar, the beautiful Vassar blog that went inactive after its founder graduated in 2011, temporarily (but hopefully permanently) rose from the dead to discuss Westboro’s impending picket line at the school.

UPenn’s blog Under the Button has a Sneaky Quaker alert on campus and some article about St. Patty’s Day $W@G.

In the ‘Cac (the blog for all the NESCAC schools) just announced that after canceling their performance at Williams, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis will be playing at Amherst. Ouch.

Middlebury’s MiddBlog just announced the college’s 2013 Commencement Speaker. Wooooo.

The famed all-Ivy blog IvyGate just broke the story that Harvard has been searching faculty email accounts (but apologized) and that yet another college (Cornell) has a hazing problem (shocker).
