BOSP Hogwarts program announced

April 1, 2016, 2:21 a.m.

The Bing Overseas Study Program (BOSP) today announced that it would be opening a new location at Hogwarts.

“We believe that this will be an enchanting experience for a variety of Stanford undergraduates,” a BOSP spokesperson said.

No foreign language requirement is going to be required for the new program, though BOSP wishes to remind students that Parseltounge is an option to satisfy Stanford’s language requirement.

Students attending the program will be unable to register for classes on Axess, as the Hogwarts faculty still haven’t figured out how to upload documents to the website, so students should check classes out on Cursework.

“Well, we ‘ave high hopes for the ideas Stanford students will bring,” a large bushy haired denizen of Hogwarts told a reporter for The Daily. “We’ll get along fine so long as they don’t bring any funny notions about banning a wee nip here and there.”

BOSP offices faced a flood of questions from the student body soon after announcing BOSP Hogwarts. Several students inquired about the bitcoin-to-Galleon exchange rate. Many others asked about the vegan options available in the Great Hall of Hogwarts and a third popular line of questioning lobbied for the creation of a CS+magic dual-degree program in the future.

One group especially excited about the new program was the Stanford Quidditch Team.

“We hope to have some quality practice team with our counterparts at Hogwarts, just as soon as the Stanford students vote to give us back our funding,” a representative said.
