Federal Perkins loan funding may be axed in Clinton’s new budget

Grad student wins car with a `lucky’ shot

When the Smith Center erupted in cheers Sunday afternoon, it was for more than a Colonials’ basketball victory over the University of Dayton. During halftime of the Men’s game, graduate student Matt Baron won a 1998 Pontiac Grand Am when he hit a layup, foul shot, three-pointer and half-court shot in less than 30 seconds. […]

MCI Center brings sports to D.C.

People have flocked to Washington, D.C. to visit artifacts of history and culture in museums for years. The city also has a rich tradition of professional, college and high school sports.

Fallen wastes viewers’ time

To declare Fallen , the new Warner Brothers film starring Denzel Washington (The Preacher’s Wife), the year’s worst movie would be unfair. After all, the year has just begun. To place this film among the decade’s worst might be more appropriate. Fallen , surprisingly, is written by the talented Nicholas Kazen, who also wrote the […]

My love life, exposed for all to see

I’ll admit this right now – I’m stealing this column idea from Rob Hertzfeldt, intrepid Hatchet cartoonist (can’t use the word intrepid too much to describe stuff). Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Plus, I’m really lazy. Anyway, I was inspired by Rob’s honesty and self-mockery when he told us about his dating life. […]

El Papa en Cuba

Cuba will experience a five-day visit by Pope John Paul II this week in his first visit to the island. Thrust into the world spotlight, Cuba may shine or stumble. The Pope potentially could link socialist and Christian ideals – offering Castro’s government a new link to legitimacy. Or the Pope could be extraordinary, publicly […]
