School spirit

This weekend will present GW students a great opportunity to support fellow students’ endeavors. Whether you like the excitement of an edge-of-the-seat athletic game, or the mental stimulation of sitting back for a thought-provoking comedic performance – a good time is to be had on campus.

The GW Theatre and Dance Department’s production of “Arcadia” and the women’s basketball team’s A-10 Championship Quarterfinal against La Salle should attract GW crowds to support students’ hard work.

Thursday at 7 p.m. in the Smith Center, the GW women compete in what could be their last game of the season. In past seasons, the crowd’s support helped buoy teams over deficits – and toward amazing comebacks. This year should be no different. While the team’s winning percentage is not as high as last season, they are just as exciting as always. And as an added incentive to students, the first 500 to show up get in for free. FREE! Take advantage of something that’s rare these days.

Tom Stoppard’s “Arcadia” is running this Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Marvin Center Theater. Fast-paced humor slides easily between the 1800s and present day – as characters ponder sex, the universe and Lord Byron. Tickets are $5, about the price of lunch at Au Bon Pain. Why not spend that money to get some intellectual nourishment?
