Madison to house freshmen next fall

Fewer options will be available to students who plan to live on campus when this spring’s housing lottery rolls around. The Pennsylvania House will be removed from the University’s campus housing system and Madison Hall will be converted into a freshman residence hall. The apartment building on Pennsylvania Avenue housed approximately 50 students, a move […]

Horoscopes

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 21) It’s time to get back on track. Your parents don’t pay this fine institution billions of dollars for you to get the G.P.A. you got last semester. AQUARIUS (Jan. 22-Feb. 21) Stressed yet? Don’t worry, you will be. With your busy schedule you won’t have any time to eat. At least […]

The Ellipse tradition

The 30-member Commencement Committee will recommend a venue for this year’s ceremony Friday morning. While the contents of its report remain to be seen, what it should say is simple. Students overwhelmingly support Commencement on the Ellipse – and that’s where it should be. Students consistently have said the Ellipse is the ideal setting to […]

Letters to the Editor

Quiet please! Studying for finals at any level is a comprehensive activity that requires the utmost concentration. However, I am baffled as to why this type of studious atmosphere is difficult to maintain in GW computer facilities. I always have been impressed with the facilities themselves. They are clean, well-structured and a valuable component of […]

How I passed the time during break

I have laryngitis, but this is a newspaper so it doesn’t really matter. I could write about how crazy it is that I am going to graduate in a few months and be thrust into the world, much like a bug flies into the freeway and is splattered over the windshield of a speeding Mack […]

Returning home and hiding indoors

When I am home for the holidays, I like to stay indoors and out of the public as much as possible. When I go out, there is a lot of confusion. First of all, when you come from a small town like I do, every time you walk outside, it is like a trip down […]

Colonials, King rule 18th-ranked Xavier

Mike King stood alone at the foul line. The clock showed all zeros and the GW men’s basketball team trailed 18th-ranked Xavier 68-66. King, a freshman playing his third collegiate game after achieving academic eligibility, calmly made two free throws – sending the game into overtime and the Smith Center into a frenzy. GW (14-3, […]

Aguilar pours in 37 points to lead GW past Duquesne

Most GW women’s basketball fans probably thought a Spaniard would lead the Colonial women in the 1997-’98 campaign. They were right. But rather than Spaniard Noelia Gomez, an Atlantic 10 All-Rookie Team selection a year ago, the Spaniard leader is first-year point guard Elisa Aguilar. Aguilar scored 37 points Monday night at Duquesne University to […]

Swimming teams top Delaware

The GW men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams both routed the University of Delaware Jan. 10. The women’s team took first place in the first 10 events, blowing out Delaware 139-97. Sophomore Jennifer Skinner won three events for the Colonial women – the 1000-meter freestyle, the 500-meter freestyle and the 200-meter freestyle. Juniors Robin […]
