GW students and the ANC elections

The elections are over finally. Hallelujah! The District of Columbia elected a man who has lived here for a handful of years, yet is viewed as the city’s savior. The nation as a whole did not view the election as a referendum on Clinton’s dalliances and instead dealt a stinging rebuke to the Republican Party. […]

Men’s Atlantic 10 Preview

Perhaps the saying “steady wins the race” is not without truth. In an age when stars abandon the college game for the NBA, the Atlantic 10 has retained 24 of the 35 starters that played in the NCAA and National Invitational tournaments last season. With five teams making NCAA appearances in 1997, this year should […]

Men down Va. Tech, Hokies beat women

Events held according to form Saturday at the Smith Center pool, as the GW men’s swimming and diving team beat Virginia Tech 139-102, and the GW women fell to the Hokies 138-104. The men beat a Tech team that finished fifth in the A-10 last season, while GW finished second. GW won all but two […]

I thought about writing something on registration and how if I ever met that lady whose voice is on the registration recording, I would be scared of her. I also thought about discussing […]

Women’s Atlantic 10 Preview

The Atlantic 10 may be at the strongest point in its history in women’s basketball. A record five teams from the conference made the postseason last year, including three teams that made it to the NCAA Tournament. In the past, GW has been the backbone of the league, but this season, a strong supporting cast […]

GW falls to URI, beats UMass

The GW women’s volleyball team missed out on a chance to sweep a pair of crucial road matches this weekend, beating Massachusetts but falling just short against Rhode Island. With the season winding down, the Colonial women (16-9, 10-6 Atlantic 10) find themselves in the running for the final spot in the four-team A-10 Championships […]

Gen. Pinochet and the hypocrisy of his arrest

I was relieved a few weeks ago upon reading the news that an ancient law in England had saved Gen. Augusto Pinochet from the hypocrisy of others. Not to say I condone everything that occurred in his 15-year rule over Chile, but arresting Pinochet and putting him on trial is hypocritical at best, and setting […]
