Rediscovering what Washington has to offer

Sometime between May and June, it hit me that my brief walk from couch to freezer for another bowl of chocolate-chocolate chip frozen yogurt hardly qualified as a summer exercise routine. This was unfortunate, as I am not one inclined to motion by nature. In general, and particularly in the summer, I enjoy lying inert […]

GW remembers Holocaust victims

Volunteers read aloud the names of children who perished in the Holocaust, a yearly campus memorial tradition, under blue skies Tuesday in Kogan Plaza. From a podium inside the tempietto, readers announced the name, age and home of each child as well as the concentration camp where each was killed. At least one million children […]

The band touch

By 6:50 a.m. Saturday morning, Lilly Needleman is raring to go – and not because she had gotten enough sleep the night before. The GW sophomore only closes her eyes after she finally finishes dividing up a hefty bag of Skittles into its component colors: red, orange, yellow, green and purple. She had spent hours […]

D.C. Diary: Nosh your average deli

Krupin’s, 4620 Wisconsin Avenue, NWFebruary 167:10 p.m. Theresa, my Italian-Irish best friend, is trying to order at Krupin’s. Trying. She peers at the menu through wisps of blond hair and studies it intently, as if nervous she’ll be quizzed. Her anxiety is partly because she is a vegetarian, so the heaping corned beef sandwich I’m […]

You live, you learn

Seven GW freshmen fled Foggy Bottom last weekend and headed for higher political ground. The students, who are neighbors on Lafayette Hall’s third floor, boarded a Greyhound bus bound for New Hampshire and spent the weekend campaigning for Bill Bradley, traipsing through the New England slush. The experience was one of many moments in the […]

Jon Stewart performance rescheduled for Sunday

Comedy Central talk-show host Jon Stewart’s appearance at GW, originally slated for Thursday night, was moved to Sunday after scheduling conflicts with Stewart’s management team nearly halted the show. Organizers for GW assured students Wednesday that all tickets purchased for the original date would be honored and that no exchange was necessary. The Sunday night […]
