University Police Chief Dolores Stafford did not use the word “embassy.” The student was escorted to his dormitory room.

In the article “Event unsettles leaders” (Oct. 6, p.5), Student Association senator Tyler Hudson was misidentified as a sophomore. He is a junior.

The article “Hungarian prime minister honored at GW” (Oct. 10, p.7) misquoted professor Hugh Agnew, who did not say that the prime minister played an important role in challenging communism. Agnew said the country played an important role in challenging communism.

Because of an insertion by an editor, the article “Anchorage Away” (Oct. 10, p. 9) incorrectly stated that the permanent fund dividend payment to Alaskans is annually $847. The amount can change from year to year.
