GW men’s soccer on the attack

GW men’s soccer coach George Lidster said he likes his team to attack. In seven games, the Colonials have been given 18 yellow cards, scored 12 goals and have not been shutout. I’m very happy when we don’t back down, said Lidster, who was carded in last week’s match against George Mason. In GW’s most […]

Staff editorial: Dollars and sense?

Get Up Kids defines emo genre

It is hard to label many modern music groups with a particular style because they blend musical styles to form their own unique sound. There are rap-metal groups, pop-punk groups and a host of other genres out there. With all these blended sounds, bands can often form outfits having many different stylistic influences and tastes.

It’s Senior’s Week in Sydney for Olympic pentathlete

Chad Senior walked down the Smith Center steps about two months ago and walked into the interview room located near the locker rooms. Despite being a two-time Atlantic 10 swimming champion for GW a few years back, Senior never had 20 reporters and photographers crammed in a little room waiting for him to speak. Now, […]
