Political Web strategists met with a GW political communication class Friday to discuss the Internet’s link to politics and possible changes in the future. The panel discussion was organized by adjunct professors Steve Rabinowitz and Laura Quinn, political media advisers to President Bill Clinton and Al Gore. The event drew Web strategists from Web sites […]

Basketball Preview: NBA tattoo? Check. Wins? Hmmmm.

So, here we are. Page 11. If you’re from China, we’re just getting started. But otherwise, you’ve probably learned a thing or two about GW basketball. God knows I have. I’m just wrapping up a weekendlong intensive course in Colonials hoops. So come into my office hours and let’s talk about what we’ve learned. So, […]

Students call for new drug laws

Students from 50 colleges said the war on drugs failed at the first annual Student Leaders in Drug Policy and Justice Conference held at GW this weekend. The GW Chapter of Students for a Sensible Drug Policy sponsored the event, which drew more than 200 students to the Marvin Center Ballroom. The event featured workshops […]

HOVA hosts `October Orgy’

Administrators and students in the Hall on Virginia Avenue participated in a game, called October Orgy, designed to show students how quickly sexually transmitted diseases could spread through unprotected sex, said seventh floor Community Facilitator Maureen Fleming. In the game, held in the last week of October, each student was given five contraceptives, and students […]

Basketball Preview: NOTE to all GW fans, the advantage is you

Despite being an only child of two Temple alums – one being a die-hard college basketball fan, the other an avid shopper – I never grew up rooting whole-heartedly for the Owls program. Sure I rooted for Eddie Jones and Aaron McKie in the mid-1990s, and unless it’s GW that they play, I won’t root […]

SA impeachment hearing looms amid student apathy

GW students are sometimes apathetic to the Student Association and its whims, but many will have to take interest when the SA Senate meets to decide the fate of impeached President Phil Meisner Tuesday night. In fact, out of about 17,025 full- and part-time students, only 2,090 students voted in the 1999 election that sent […]

Article misinterprets SAPC’s role

As the manager of the Substance Abuse Prevention Center (SAPC) at GW, I want to correct some misinterpretations from last Monday’s article A culture behind closed doors, (p. 1). The writer said that the SAPC is the organization that deals with illegal drug use on campus. The SAPC is actually the department within the University […]

Basketball Preview: The Hatchet’s Men’s Atlantic 10 Predictions

WEST 1. Xavier. Last season: 25-11 (12-4, 2nd), NIT semifinals; Skip Prosser, sixth year (106-45) After losing three stars, one might ask how Xavier could still win the West. The answer is Darnell Williams. If all goes well, another NCAA berth is likely. 2. George Washington. Last season: 20-9 (13-3, 1st), NCAA first round; Tom […]

Students sell dates for charity

Contestants broke out their Austin Powers impersonations, hula-hooping skills and musical talents during the Chinese American Students Association Date Auction in the Mitchell Hall Theater Friday. The 23 auctioned dates, or the goods as Masters of Ceremonies Jenni Suen and Martin Kim called them, had two choices once they arrived on stage: play a game […]

Cruising for trouble — staff editorial

University Police should be commended for its successful sting operation, barring from campus individuals who were caught soliciting sex in the Marvin Center men’s bathrooms. Sex in public places is unacceptable, and GW is taking steps to end the situation on campus. Twenty men were caught in the two-week sting operation. They will be permanently […]
