Media circus

The current media frenzy surrounding the saga of President Clinton and Monica Lewinsky is extremely disappointing. After the O.J. Simpson escapade, the media took a look at itself and pledged to re-find ethics and integrity. After the death of Princess Diana, the media proclaimed the necessity of returning to pre-tabloid times. Yet again and again, […]

Letters to the Editor

Endangered GWorld “Greetings to the GWorld Card Office Staff at the George Washington University”… We’d like to acknowledge the receipt of your letter stating that we, the misinformed students, now owe you money because the proper authorities failed to fulfill their obligation and give students correct information on the use of the “new and improved” […]

Humbled by professor, and then a talk with GW’s big men

To entertain my family of readers this week, I was going to publicly torch a professor I felt had wronged me. Unfortunately, my mother told me to talk to him first. So I gathered up my Gatt, my nine, my Dick Tracy recording equipment and my Roy Rogers butterfly knife and went to his office […]

With its win over Temple Monday, GW tied Duquesne for first place in the Atlantic 10 West Division. Sunday’s game with Duquesne could be for sole possession of first place, depending […]

Students face fallout from GWorld glitch

Students who thought they used meal plan points at Mick’s Restaurant last semester may face holds on their records until they foot unpaid bills. Mick’s erringly allowed students without GWorld debit accounts to use “meal plan points” to pay for purchases. Incorrectly charged transactions caught up with students this week when the GWorld card office […]

GW didn’t lose to URI because of quiet fans

As a fan rooting for the GW men’s basketball team Tuesday night in its loss to Rhode Island, I have one thing to say. It wasn’t our fault. Not since the glory days of the Massachusetts-GW rivalry has the Smith Center been so raucous, so loud, and so filled with students. My friends and I […]
