Forum: Plan ignores academics, community

What has our University become? Four years ago I came to GW with a promise of unparalleled opportunities. The phrase Something Happens Here not only referred to a student’s campus prospects but the use of the entire District as its extended classroom. At the time, we were the largest and brightest class to ever enter […]

Forum: Best option to protect students’ rights

GW’s history as a commuter school has left the endowment weak relative to Harvard and other such schools. As a result, the University’s ability to strengthen academics, build more residence halls and create a world-class institution is dependent on only two things: student tuition and investment properties. If the BZA imposes a cap on University […]

Political groups face off

The leaders of the GW College Republicans and GW College Democrats squared off live on WRGW radio Tuesday evening to inform students about the platforms of presidential candidates Al Gore and George W. Bush. CD President Anjan Choudhury and CR Chairman Bill Eldridge debated issues from defense to education for more than an hour in […]

Containing conflict

One of the clearest arguments in for favor of intervention was spoken nearly sixty years ago by a Haitian diplomat at the League of Nations in 1935. He said, All nations of the world, big or small, weak or mighty, we must act now or one day we will be somebody’s Ethiopia. Very simply it […]

Fashion faux pas or sartorial elegance?

I know you’re out there you ultra-liberal fashion critics. I hear your comments on how snobby GW has become, and what a shame it is. But let’s get serious; there’s more to campus style than dark jeans and a matching jean jacket with a Harve Chapelier sac or a Prada bag. As one of the […]

Great coverage

Thank you for your wonderfully written article on DC Reads in the Sept 14 issue (p. 6). The positive reaction generated by the article can only help our cause. Recognition of our work encourages the tutors who are already in the program, students interested in the program and the people who are supporting our program […]

Burt should back off PB

Perhaps there is no Student Association issue that affects more students than the allocation of student group funds. While I congratulate SA President David Burt for getting more funds from the University, I am disheartened to see that he has decided to hoard all the money rather than giving it to the people who deserve […]

Staff editorial: Tarnished gold

The work of a lifetime can be destroyed by a single act. Romanian gymnast Andreea Raducan certainly understands this concept in light of recent events. Her Olympic gold medal was stripped from her for using pseudo-ephedrine, a banned substance found in cold medicine that works like adrenaline to make the heart beat faster. Raducan claims […]

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 […]
