PB exposes students to adult film

It was not Shakespeare or Spielberg. But the film’s title, Juranal Park, certainly rang a bell. And the 18-and-older crowd filled the Marvin Center ballroom Thursday night for Program Board’s showing of “XXX Adult Entertainment.” “We show a variety of films to meet a variety of students’ needs,” said PB Films Chair Ian Zeitzer. “It’s […]

Finally, some ethics – Staff editorial

Juanita Broaddrick is known as “Jane Doe No. 5.” She has been for quite a while. And although the public barely knows who she is, she comes with a story that is as explosive as it is unproven. Broaddrick claims that in 1978, then-Arkansas Attorney General Bill Clinton sexually assaulted her in a hotel room. […]

Slow-moving lottery lasts 12 hours

After months of policy revisions, weeks of publicity and a day of pandemonium, the annual on-campus housing lottery ended Saturday in the Marvin Center’s Columbian Square at 11 p.m. About 1,500 students who turned in their intent-to-return forms chose their future rooms at the lottery, said Mark Levine, assistant dean of students.

GW can’t match up with Owls

PHILADELPHIA – GW men’s basketball head coach Tom Penders knows the reason his team lost 72-56 at Temple Saturday. Poor shooting was the culprit. “We didn’t hit the shots that we needed to hit to stay with them. I’m firing my offensive coordinator,” Penders said with a small laugh. He didn’t have much to smile […]

Last year’s narrow defeat to Massachusetts at the Atlantic 10 Championship was disappointing for the GW men’s swimming and diving team, but this year’s finish might have been more heartbreaking. After taking the lead on the second day of the three-day competition, GW finished in third place at the meet held in Buffalo, N.Y., Thursday […]

Ed Meinert considers himself an outsider. Despite being a Student Association senator, an Advisory Neighborhood Commission candidate and a campus activist, the outspoken presidential candidate said he does not consider himself a part of the “establishment.” Meinert said his experience on campus and in the community will help him change the SA’s unrealistic protests and […]

GW puts forth solid efforts, but no wins

The GW gymnastics team put together two solid efforts last week but failed to come away with a victory. The Colonial women finished second out of five teams at the Towson University Invitational in Towson, Md., Sunday with a score of 192.175. The host Tigers won the meet for the 14th straight year with a […]

Phil Meisner

Although he is only a sophomore, Phil Meisner says now is the time for him to serve as Student Association president. “If I were to run for another position, I wouldn’t feel right about it,” Meisner said. “I see what needs to be done.” He said he does not want to see the SA “flounder” […]

Stretch Princess album blends great vocals and pop sound

With its self-titled album, Stretch Princess proves female singers don’t have to be divas or a second-stage act at the Lillith Fair. Stretch Princess (Wind-Up) opens with a bang with the song “Oooh!” A furious guitar and manic beat provide a great clash to lead singer Jo Lloyd’s smooth, child-like vocals. “Oooh!” has the potential […]
