The Vigil Continues

In a patch of woods just a few clicks from the Lincoln Memorial, a squad of soldiers maneuvers silently under the moonlit sky through the imaginary jungles of the 38th parallel, frozen in statuesque immortality. Down the trodden footpath is the V-shaped wall that points to Saigon, triggering memories and flashbacks of a later generation […]

Pair of Spaniards makes Colonial women tick

The GW women’s basketball team is preparing for a season that could bring them national attention – head coach Joe McKeown has his entire NCAA Tournament team from last year back and ready to compete at the next level. At the heart of this season’s journey for the Colonial women is the “Spanish Connection” of […]

Disruptive construction noise from ongoing renovation of Gelman Library’s sixth floor has forced the relocation of some classes that are held there to Lisner Hall.

Big and small, seniors will lead Colonials this season
