GW students robbed off campus

Two off-campus robberies in the past week have University Police Director Dolores Stafford warning students to be cautious about security when they step off campus. Two students, a male and a female, reported they were robbed at gunpoint at the intersection of South Carolina Avenue and 9th Street Monday night. The victims told police that […]

GW crews finish fall season, prepare for spring

The GW crew program wrapped up its fall competitive season last Sunday, when the novice boats hit the water at Princeton University at the Belly of the Carnegie. Only the novice boats (made up of freshmen and first-year rowers) competed at the event. The men fielded two boats, and the women entered three. The men […]

SA Greek-letter committee gathers testimony in hearing

The Student Association Senate’s ad hoc Greek Affairs Committee heard testimony Sunday from GW fraternity members that later will be released in a report to administrators and the University’s Board of Trustees. In his testimony before the committee, Interfraternity Council President Neil Smith spoke of the accomplishments of the Greek-letter community. He said this fall’s […]

Library extends study lounge hours

Students now will be able to remain in Gelman Library’s fourth-floor study lounge until 2 a.m. after University administrators approved funding for additional security. The two-hour extension kicked off Monday night with a ribbon-cutting party. Students packed the library’s fourth-floor lobby, eating desserts and drinking coffee. At midnight, members of the Student Association and Gelman […]

Enemy of the State excites viewers with endless action

An action-packed flick with corruption, murder and redemption, Enemy of the State (Touchstone) takes Will Smith another step away from his days on “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.” Smith (Men in Black) portrays Robert Clayton Dean, a D.C. attorney who suddenly finds himself involved in a web of deceit surrounding the murder of a […]

Letters to the Editor

Support needed I write this letter in regards to student attendance at GW women’s basketball games – it is deplorable. On Monday, the 13th-ranked Colonial women played our cross-town rival Georgetown and won. They played a great game even though almost as many Georgetown students attended as GW students did. As a Smith Center employee […]

Joseph Mills presents latest work at Fall Dance Concert

The GW Dance Company performs its Fall Dance Concert this weekend in the Dorothy Betts Marvin Theatre. The concert, directed by dance Professor Joseph Mills, contains works choreographed by Mills and GW seniors. An experienced dancer, Mills’ list of credentials is impressive. Before he began touring with MOMIX Dance Theatre in 1987, Mills was a […]

In search of campus activism

Have we run out of things to fight for? My first three years at GW were marked by impassioned, united battles (impassioned and united by GW standards, anyway), but it seems that this year, the charge-ahead spirit that traditionally colors college life is missing. Not that our battles always have been big ones. There was […]

Home Fries – too complicated to be a true Drew flick

You want to like it. You try to like it. Drew Barrymore is lovable and Luke Wilson is good-looking, but you really can’t find something, anything, that bumps Home Fries (Warner Bros.) into the category of likable films. The previews highlight an adorable budding romance between Sally (Barrymore, Ever After) and Dorian (Wilson, Bottle Rocket). […]
