Cohabitation, GW and D.C. law

Should residents of GW residence halls be allowed to choose the person they wish to room with, regardless of gender? The answer may depend less on the views of the University or its students than on the law. Contrary to the impression that may have been created, freshmen Kathy Rooney (a heterosexual female) and Clark […]

Letters to the Editor

Forgotten history So we had this three-day weekend, a time to party and sleep in for one extra day. Everyone enjoys a Monday off. I don’t do anything special for Presidents’ Day, but I do know what it is. Americans have become so ignorant to their history that we don’t even know what holiday we […]

Error: File not found – Staff editorial

GW did away with its off-campus housing office two years ago and replaced it with a “virtual service” – a Web site with outdated listings, no contact information and little utility. The Web site isn’t as much virtual as it is pathetic. The Web site officially comes under the jurisdiction of Student and Academic Support […]

It’s finally over – Staff editorial

Last week brought the end to the soap opera that has been the highlight of national politics for more than a year. The Senate acquitted President Clinton on the two articles of impeachment the House of Representatives brought against him. The second impeachment trial in the nation’s 210-year history came to an anti-climactic end. Officials […]

GW notches pair of A-10 victories

The GW men’s basketball team remained in a tie for first place in the Atlantic 10’s West Division with a pair of weekend conference victories over St. Joseph’s and Dayton. Two days after the Colonials blew out St. Joe’s at home, Dayton took GW down to the wire in the team’s third nail-biter in the […]

Colonials open season by dropping two of three

The GW baseball team started its season this weekend by losing two of three games at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. The Colonials (1-2) ruined the opening of the new UNCG Baseball Stadium for the Spartans (2-1) by winning the first game of the set, but they blew leads in both losses. “We […]

Colonial women take second at N.C. State invitational

The GW gymnastics team placed second in a four-team meet won by host North Carolina State University Friday night at the Hearts Invitational at Reynolds Coliseum in Raleigh, N.C. N.C. State won the overall competition with a score of 194.375, defeating a competitive GW team, which finished with 192.400. The College of William & Mary […]

Trustees pass 4.6% tuition increase

University trustees passed the lowest tuition increase returning undergraduates have seen in 11 years when they voted on the administration’s proposed budget Friday. The 4.6 percent increase for continuing undergraduates is 0.1 percent lower than last year’s increase and almost 2.5 percent lower than the 6.9 percent increase that raised student ire two years ago. […]

GW splits A-10 games in Ohio

The GW women’s basketball team could not follow last weekend’s sweep against Xavier and Dayton at the Smith Center as the Colonial women split two road games. In a quirk in the schedule, GW traveled to play the same Xavier and Dayton teams it soundly defeated just one week ago. Although GW handled Dayton again, […]

GW breaks ground for fitness center

University trustees, students and community members ceremonially broke ground for GW’s health and wellness center Friday, kicking off a construction project scheduled for completion by November 2000. The groundbreaking marked the end of the University’s uphill battle with area residents to build the new facility at the corner of 23rd and G streets. “This new […]
