Raindrops on my head — staff editorial

Fourteen freshmen residents of the Hall on Virginia Avenue became first-hand casualties of GW’s hastily planned expansion when they were moved out of their rooms because of structural damage on the seventh and eight floors. Students complained about leaky ceilings three weeks prior to leaving their rooms. The strong rain of Hurricane Floyd exacerbated HOVA’s […]

University clarifies alcohol policy

Student groups must refrain from using funds appropriated by Student Academic and Support Services when purchasing alcohol for events, according to a University memo Sept. 14. The change affects graduate students and undergraduates, which some students said is unfair. Student Bar Association President Nathan Hale Williams said virtually 100 percent of the people in GW […]

Metro madness — staff editorial

College students and other people who depend on public transportation would gain a new travel option with a D.C. Metro Board measure under consideration that would keep the Metro open until 1 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays.

A little from column `A,’ a little from column `B’

Yeah, that’s right. My column this week isn’t as long-winded as usual. They can’t all be manifestos. Besides, things are a little slow in the GW sports world. Not to say that they’re boring. I’ve often thought that the two most interesting things for a sports writer to cover are the awesome teams and the […]


Junior Mike King and Maryland’s Terence Morris grace the cover of the D.C. edition of Athlon’s College Basketball Preview, which declares the Colonials’ No. 5 the “King of D.C.” In the one-page preview of the men’s team, Athlon says: “If there’s one certainty about a Tom Penders-coached team it’s that the veteran coach will win.
