The return of Saddam

Saddam Hussein is back – and the world doesn’t know what to do with him. The United States wants to punish him so that he will abide by United Nations sanctions imposed on Iraq after the Persian Gulf War. These sanctions allow U.N. inspectors to verify Iraq is not pursuing development of weapons of mass […]

Busta Rhymes gives rap back to fans

When Busta Rhymes’ first single from his new album, “Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Can See” hit the radio, hip hop fans were concerned. It was phat, but was it real? Did Busta Rhymes fall victim to the lure of money, thinking that a style switch would boost his career? Luckily, the answer is […]

Improved shooting, rebounding, experience to help GW

Deficiencies in rebounding, outside shooting and experience added up to last year’s disappointing 15-14 season for the GW men’s basketball team. Heading into the 1997-’98 season, the Colonials appear to have solved these three problems. The addition of freshman power forwards Pat Ngongba and Antxon Iturbe – both 6-8 – should improve the team’s rebounding. […]

Move over, Recess

The newest GW comedy group may call itself Purely Coincidental, but it’s far from PC. Recess is no longer the only comedy group on campus. But the appearance of PC was hardly coincidental; founding the group took a lot of planning and hard work. Senior Andrew Kozma and sophomore Ryan Frank, who started the group […]

Abraham, McCrea, Cermignano find success after GW

Lisa Cermignano, Tajama Abraham and Colleen McCrea stood on stage at Commencement last May and were honored by the University and President Clinton. Just six months later, the three senior standouts, who led a talented GW women’s basketball team to the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament last season, have left GW, entered the real […]

Jarvis stresses life lessons in `last lecture’

Individualism and valuing one’s selfhood were the major tenets of men’s basketball Coach Mike Jarvis’ “last lecture” Wednesday at Western Presbyterian Church. Jarvis was the second speaker this semester in a lecture series that invites University notables to deliver a lecture as if it would be their last. In his lecture, Jarvis described the important […]

Koul and Rogers ready to lead a GW revival

Leadership and heart are two intangible aspects of athletics. The ability of a leader to motivate the entire team and bring the players to another level is a vital aspect of a winner. This year, Shawnta Rogers and Alexander Koul will have their leadership skills put to the test as by the GW men’s basketball […]

Students face debt challenge

As students find themselves saddled with telephone bills, textbook expenses and miscellaneous expenditures, credit card debt looms large as a challenge of student life. With credit card solicitors outside the Marvin Center offering free T-shirts, prepaid calling cards and discounts on air travel, credit cards are a ubiquitous temptation. The 1997 Colonial Cabinet warned freshmen […]

With healthy knee, Green readyfor stellar senior season at GW

He flies through the air with the greatest of ease – or at least he does when his knee is healthy. Fortunately for the GW men’s basketball team, Darin Green’s knee is finally healthy, and fans can once again expect to be riveted to the high-flying senior. The Charlotte, N.C. native averaged just 10 minutes […]

Maher’s show just told it like it was

When I went to check out the Program Board’s latest effort to entertain the GW masses last Thursday at Lisner Auditorium, I wasn’t sure who Bill Maher actually was. “Bill who? A host? For Politically what?” were my exact words. But persuaded to do something a little more “cultural” than the weekly frat party or […]
