Staff editorial – MVC: Changing campus

University officials recently began talking of major changes to Mount Vernon that could radically alter what, for 122 years, has been an independent women’s campus. Administrators are considering housing men at Mount Vernon and making the University Honors Program a bigger presence at the campus. The question facing administrators and students is to what extent […]

Steel Magnolias creates poetry out of everyday life

An ounce of pretension is worth a pound of manure, declares Clairee, one of the regulars at Truvy’s hair salon. Steel Magnolias, the latest production of GW’s Theater and Dance Department, lives by this motto, shucking any notions of grand theatre and focusing upon the simplicity of everyday life. What is left is average people […]

Staff editorial – Speed up the system

Long lines mean long waits, and nowhere on campus is this statement more true than at J Street, GW’s main eatery. University Dining Services administrators insist that changes are being made to improve students’ experience at J Street. Those changes, if any were made, have been largely ineffectual.

I strongly supported the construction of a new GW Hospital. I supported the new SMPA building. I have always said the University should improve and expand […]

DeNiro, Stiller team up in Meet the Parents

2.5 Hatchets Be honest. Who thought they’d ever hear Robert DeNiro say, I’ve got nipples, Greg. Why don’t you milk me? The once mighty and powerful Raging Bull has thrown his hat into the comedy ring, and he’s not half bad. DeNiro takes on his third major comedic performance in the screwball, slapstick farce Meet […]

Forum: New pill increases options for women

The recent approval of the RU-486, or morning-after pill, has George W. Bush and the rest of the anti-abortion camp in a frenzy. The Federal Drug Administration has finally allowed women access to a healthy, effective, safe, non-surgical means to make decisions about their bodies. The anti-choice Bush campaign cannot understand why the FDA would […]
