New GWorld Partners
Utilizing new technology has allowed the expansion of the GWorld Card program to a variety of new vendors as the quality of J Street continues to deteriorate.
JEC politics

Residence Hall Renewal Project
SA President Omar Woodard should be commended for securing additional funds to improve condition of GW residence halls. But how much of a difference will $2 million actually make?
Supreme Court
The Supreme Court should be commended for taking a brave stance against the death penalty by overturning juvenile executions.
