Ideas for changing the elections process

A lot has been said recently about the Student Association. I guess it was inevitable I would have to add my two cents. Just so nobody gets confused, I think the way the SA works and the way elections ran this year both suck. Now before the members of the SA and Joint Elections Committee, […]

To make a difference, get involved

I arrived on the GW campus this year wanting to help fellow students by contributing my efforts to make the system work for them. I have always believed that if the resources available to people are used with conviction and dedication, positive change is possible. I told some of my new friends that these thoughts […]

Making a bigger mess in the Balkans

Last week, NATO, a collective defense alliance formed in the early years of the Cold War, initiated an unofficial war against a sovereign state in the middle of Europe.

The group has hit the music circuit again with its first new single, “Maria,” which is being widely played on radio stations everywhere. But for all the effort, this new album, No Exit, still falls short of the […]

SEAS students call for end to apathy

A “mid-life crisis” in the School of Engineering and Applied Science spurred two seniors to write a 30-page memo to SEAS faculty members detailing what they see as the problems that plague the school. “Our purpose in writing this manifesto is not to gripe about the shortcomings of our educational experience at SEAS, but to […]

Thanks to all who helped in long EVP campaign

I wanted to express my gratitude to those who supported me and were a part of the Grosso Campaign ’99 – my candidacy for executive vice president of the Student Association.
