GW remembers Holocaust victims

Volunteers read aloud the names of children who perished in the Holocaust, a yearly campus memorial tradition, under blue skies Tuesday in Kogan Plaza. From a podium inside the tempietto, readers announced the name, age and home of each child as well as the concentration camp where each was killed. At least one million children […]

A moment at the monuments

Although apathy toward government is growing daily, and disgust for Congress and the White House swells with each passing administration, for some reason, people still flock to D.C.’s famous monuments.

Sigma Chi’s alumni-house corporation, the Epsilon Housing Trust, leased house and property on 2004 G St. to Lambda Chi Alpha for three years with the option to extend the agreement for an […]

Staff Editorial — Truth in statistics

As a result of a provision of the Campus Security Act, campus crime statistics are now tabulated more accurately, and the winners are students who want to know the truth about campus crime. In the past, infractions such as large parties at which underage individuals are caught drinking would be counted in the University Police […]
