The purpose of the new college, according to a presentation by Donald Lehman, vice president for Academic Affairs, and Roger Whitaker, vice president for Academic Development and Continuing Education, would be to […]

NROTC students sponsor blood drive

Military officers and students who showed up for the Navy Reserve Officer Training Corps blood drive Friday said they came for the same reason – it is an easy, free way to help save someone’s life. Midshipman Greg Skelton, one of the organizers of the event, said the NROTC decided to hold the drive because […]

New GW magazine features in-depth campus reporting

A new GW student-run magazine featuring in-depth articles on campus life will hit the newsstands Feb. 23. Editor in chief Megan Poinski said The GW Journal will be a cross between Newsweek and Rolling Stone. Poinski said she came up with the concept for a monthly magazine because she wanted a publication that would have […]

Students scream at sequel

GW students proved they like scary movies at the Student Activities Center-sponsored premiere of Scream 3 Friday night. More than 360 GW students turned out for the private showing of the movie at the Union Station AMC Theater. This was great, said junior Shreema Sanghvi, coordinator of the evening.

Uniform policy — staff editorial

In the wake of a calamitous, unregistered hotel party attended by members of the Pakistani Students Association, the responsibilities of multicultural and other non-Greek-letter groups in holding off-campus events needs re-examination.

Comeback Colonials roar past Musketeers

With GW down 39-24 at the half of Saturday evening’s game with Xavier at the Smith Center, the 4,762 fans in attendance who have followed the Colonials this year were probably relying on the same minimally comforting knowledge the Colonials were. We’ve been in this situation before, freshman Chris Monroe told his teammates at halftime. […]
