This year, the SA managed to get $57,000 more from the administration […]

Barenaked Ladies tread water on latest release

The Barenaked Ladies’ latest album, Maroon, brings together the whimsical and the gloomy. This forms the manic-depressive style that the Ladies are famous for. This style, however, comes off dry by this, their fifth album. While Maroon is consistent with the band’s signature style, it lacks innovation. The singles Pinch Me and Falling For The […]

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, […]

Campus plan hearings end, BZA to vote

The D.C. Board of Zoning Adjustment heard the third and final day of testimony in GW’s application for the 2000-2010 campus plan Tuesday.

GW takes a dive, 11-7

While the GW men’s water polo team put up some good shots Wednesday night at the Smith Center, it was not enough to get the job done against Johns Hopkins University, which handed the Colonials an 11-7 defeat and their sixth straight loss. GW (3-10) looked strong at the start when freshman Gabe Miller was […]

SA funding gets Senate approval

The Student Association Senate approved its fall budget Tuesday, allocating more than $140,000 to student groups.
