Independent candidate Stemple does it his way

I am appalled by the unsatisfactory nature of the Student Association, the Joint Elections Committee and the state of the student elections process. To limit the exposure and the interaction between candidates and students is an insult to all parties involved. Though the JEC may have been originally based on legitimate principles, I believe it […]

`Arcadia’ brings chase for Byron to GW stage

c Sex, literature and death are the three main themes of Tom Stoppard’s “Arcadia,” which is being performed in the Marvin Center Theater by the GW Department of Theater and Dance this weekend. Literally, arcadia means pastoral – simple and innocent – but Stoppard’s play is anything but. It is a comedy of innuendoes and […]

Stereotypes and the Golden Marlas

“There is a point at which it becomes foolish to deny the fact of black athletic prowess, and even more foolish to banish speculation on the topic.” I know what some of you are thinking, “Racist Rob the Grand Wizard finally has crossed the almighty line.” Well you can send your self-righteous letters to the […]

Letters to the editor

Lottery blues I am a rising sophomore who, on February 21, sat in J Street and anxiously waited for my number to be called. My fears steadily increased as one by one, all of the co-ed halls’ doubles filled. My number was to be called after 8:30 – but by 8 p.m., the people in […]

School spirit

This weekend will present GW students a great opportunity to support fellow students’ endeavors. Whether you like the excitement of an edge-of-the-seat athletic game, or the mental stimulation of sitting back for a thought-provoking comedic performance – a good time is to be had on campus. The GW Theatre and Dance Department’s production of “Arcadia” […]

PB chair toss-up

The race for Program Board executive chair sets itself apart this campaign season. It has not been marred by any sort of violations of campaign rules and regulations – or by the bitter factions that usually accompany elections. It is heartening to see the two candidates for PB chair, who have spent years working together […]
