Stuck in your head

We’ve all had the experience. A song gets stuck in your head and you just can’t stop that internal melody. “I listen to the drums in all songs, and when I hear a sick rhythm or drum beat, it just loops in my head, and sometimes I can’t even pay attention to anything else,” musician […]

Business in the front, party in the back

Most college students are wary of the line that separates work and play. However, some GW entrepreneurs traverse it purposefully, just like they bypass the Thursday night waiting line at Lulu’s. For these students, blasting hip-hop, mini-skirts and frozen margaritas are just another day at work. Senior Eric Lund and junior Sam Slater have been […]

Synchronized skating club looks to grow

Synchronized skating, or “synchro,” is a branch of figure skating that is still new and unfamiliar to the general public. In 2002, several area universities established the Pentagon Intercollegiate Synchronized Skating Team, but it has not helped to promote awareness of the sport. “Most people have never even heard of synchronized skating,” freshman Erin Shea […]

Men’s Squash: Unwelcome in their own home

The GW men’s squash team has improved dramatically since it became a varsity program last season, rising in the College Squash Rankings to No. 21. But players say they still feel slighted. Despite the 2001 opening of the Health and Wellness Center, which includes several squash courts, the team is unable to compete on campus […]

Rec Sports Monthly: Executive Games

White House roller hockey isn’t a varsity or intramural sport, but the club has become better known than most other student activities in the District.

But many GW athletes never really experience this thrill because the school’s urban campus doesn’t allow for many home fields. GW’s location is one of the […]

GW researcher links gene to binge drinking

It’s Saturday night and seven female students sit around the kitchen table in their third floor New Hall room. Equipped with a blender, a handle of Jose Cuervo and a bag of limes, they pound tequila shots while sipping frozen margaritas. Six drinks later, they’re ready to go out. GW alumnus and research fellow Aryeh […]

Squashing the competition

First-year Division I varsity programs face many obstacles. They must recruit new players, find equipment and struggle against more experienced opponents. But few freshman squads share the GW men’s squash team’s problem – they can’t find suitable competition. Head Coach Simon Harrington, a GW alumnus and former member of the GW 20-year-old club squash team, […]

Portrait of an artist

Utopia, a small, artsy restaurant in Adams Morgan, currently houses the work of a rising young artist who unveiled his first “professional” art exhibit Tuesday at 8 p.m. Although this is the first time the public has been able to see his artwork, junior Ross Smirnoff has already made a name for himself at GW.
