Company eliminates online note services

Online notes publisher Versity.com no longer emphasizes its note-taking services after a merger with Collegeclub.com. Students searching for Versity.com online are forwarded to Collegeclub.com, a Web site that offers academic tutorials in a variety of subject areas. Last year Versity.com paid students to take notes for classes. These notes were then listed on the Web […]

Students create memorial fund

Tom Weaver was just like any other GW student. He rowed crew, was co-director of political affairs for the GW College Republicans, worked on John McCain’s presidential campaign, coached youth basketball and planned to join the Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity. It is this image of an energetic, fun-loving man that Weaver’s friends said they want […]

Starting on the front page, SA Senate approves funding for student groups, (Sept. 28) there is imprecision surrounding the events […]

Staff editorial: Debating the debates

About 150 students gathered at a rally Thursday to support presidential candidate Ralph Nader’s bid to be included in the presidential debates.

Staff editorial: Bloody Jerusalem

Jerusalem, perhaps the most sacred and revered city in the world, was engulfed in violence once more over the weekend.
