Through sleet and snow — staff editorial

During a two-day stretch when the University was shut down because of a paralyzing snowstorm, GW managed to have a good time and feed its students – two essentials of college life. While the majority of students stayed indoors, the Hippodrome offered free bowling and hot chocolate for students stricken by cabin fever. On the […]

Students seek balance and friends in fraternity

Freshman Anthony Balistrieri rushed into the Hippodrome after an invigorating game of snow football with his newest friends – his fraternity brothers.

Foster-ing GW’s success

Brown and GW put on show at St. Bonaventure’s expense

Judging by the 3,345 fans and packed student section that showed up Wednesday night at the Smith Center for GW’s tilt with the surprising Bonnies of St. Bonaventure, not everyone in Foggy Bottom had given up on the Colonials yet. Most importantly, neither had the Colonials. Playing its first home game with students in class […]
