J Street has a plethora of choices to offer

This summer the University worked hard to bring new stations and an overall better dining experience to GW. It is my belief that this hard work has paid off as the GW community has responded positively to our new salad bar, wrap station, breakfast bar and Burger King. In the last couple of weeks, many […]

Recycling recycling – Staff editorial

After a hiatus of several years because of budget cutbacks and financial problems, District officials are poised to rejuvenate a citywide recycling program.

SA passes bill against doctoral fee increases

The Student Association Senate approved a resolution Tuesday which urges University administrators not to charge extra fees to graduate and doctoral students who are writing dissertations after they complete required course work.

GW to reconsider contract with Pepsi

GW’s exclusive contract with Pepsico Inc., the makers of Pepsi Cola, will be up for renewal in the year 2000 and University administrators said they are considering other options.
