As I am sure it will be reported in The Hatchet, Phil Meisner was removed from his position as the president of the Student Association Wednesday morning. Last year, I ran to be the executive vice president of the Student Association, […]

Too little, too late for SA president

Too little, too late. Let me sum up the impeachment hearing of Student Association President Phil Meisner with those four words.

Just like starting over

Sophomore Jason Smith is looking to rebound and establish himself in the GW men’s basketball lineup after an early end to his rookie season at GW.
