Programming praise

On behalf of the entire GW Program Board, I would like to thank the GW community for their overwhelming support of Spring Fling 2000 and other PB events this year. No matter how you slice it, our greatest measure of success is the feedback we get from you, the students. We have received tons of […]

Sigma Chi leases house to fraternity

GW’s Lambda Chi Alpha chapter signed a three-year lease for a house owned by former GW chapter Sigma Chi, the fraternities announced Wednesday. 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 […]

GW wins with 10 late runs

In the top of the seventh inning against non-conference opponent George Mason Tuesday, sophomore Matt Krimmel stepped up hitless for the game. The GW baseball team (32-19, 13-5 Atlantic 10) was hitless against George Mason’s Todd Simo. Krimmel singled and GW broke out of its slump, scoring three runs that inning, and seven more on […]

Hearing Board puts GW peers in the jury box

Faced with major charges and confident that he was innocent, a senior walked into the University Hearing Board process earlier this semester and became concerned about who was deciding his fate. I was being prosecuted with serious stuff by students who didn’t seem serious, said the senior, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. I […]

Staff Editorial — Consumer catastrophe

Time Warner’s refusal to carry Disney programming on its cable distribution networks, while apparently legal, greatly inconvenienced television viewers and rests on shaky ethical grounds. Disney, owner of the ABC network, is one of Time Warner’s fiercest competitors. As such, no love was lost between the two in the contract dispute that led to this […]

Miller and Jenkins on campus visits

Men’s basketball recruit Darnell Miller (6-4 guard; St. Raymond’s, Bronx) is currently on campus making an official recruiting visit. He was joined Wednesday night by Greg Jenkins (6-9 forward; Mt. Vernon H.S., N.Y.). These two players represent GW’s recruiting focus for this late signing period. Miller has already given GW a verbal commitment, but neither […]

Law alters UPD crime figures

University officials broke up a Riverside Towers party earlier this academic year that included about 70 people and underage drinking – a somewhat common occurrence on a college campus. But this type of incident has become more significant because of a change in federal law that requires University Police to count incidents like this differently. […]

Harassment suit risk reduction

Ensuring that the new GW sexual harassment policy provides sufficient due process protections isn’t just about protecting professors from being wrongfully convicted. It’s also about protecting complainants, witnesses and even panel members from being sued; and protecting free speech in classrooms. As an attorney who has probably filed and won more legal actions aimed at […]
