In addition to the dinner festivities, all nine floors of Thurston Hall will participate in a holiday tree decorating contest.

J Street adds to menu

Kaz Sushi began offering pho soup, a Vietnamese broth, last week. Pronounced “foe” by Americans but traditionally pronounced “fuh,” the broth contains a mixture of herbs, spices, noodles and, if desired, meat.

Pho will be available daily at Kaz Sushi for $6.95.

Students interview for AfricaTV

GW students were interviewed for AfricaTV, an organization providing news service from the United States in Africa, as part of an AIDS awareness event Thursday night at the Marvin Center.

The event, which was originally supposed to feature a panel discussion with people diagnosed with HIV, became student-focused after the panelists could not attend because of the snowstorm.

Most of the 11 students who attended the event were interviewed one-on-one for the program to be broadcast in Africa in the near future.
