GW basketball and Playstation make strange bedfellows

Being the editor of a college newspaper’s sports section has its perks. The biggest one, of course, is that I have a courtside seat at every basketball game. I can even be late and my seat is still there. If I get to the game early, it’s usually only so I can swipe a few […]

Iraq is problem for world, not just U.S.

Brandon Wales’ op-ed (“Save the Iraqi people, not Clinton’s presidency,” Jan. 25, p. 5) is full of misrepresentations of facts and fallacies in logic in terms of the current Iraqi situation.

Romantic teen comedies return to the movie screen

With the success of teen slasher movies such as Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer, it seemed Hollywood had turned away from romantic teen comedies. But She’s All That (Miramax), a sweet and funny high school love story, revisits the neglected genre of Cinderella story lines. She’s All That could be described […]

GW fails to clarify location of classes

GW students who unknowingly registered for courses at the Mount Vernon campus were frustrated on the first day of the new semester when they could not find their classes.
