Provisions matches local prices

Students on the Dining Services Commission said GW’s Provisions Market grocery store offers competitive prices to local grocers. Students pay fair and sometimes even better prices at Provisions Too than at larger supermarkets, sophomore Jared Degnan and junior Peter Bastone said. However, some students say they feel the prices are unfair. It’s absolutely ridiculous because […]

Burt questions medical funding

Student Association President David Burt said he signed the finance bill that budgets money to all registered student groups Monday, despite his objections to disproportionate allocations to the Medical Center Student Council.

Although space prevents me from refuting all of her misconceptions en toto, I will attempt to address the most glaring […]

Freaky to Fashionable

Piercings. Whether on the face, ears, stomach, nose or just about anywhere else, body piercing has become very fashionable. The trend, once deemed as freaky by society, has become mainstream among younger generations and GW students. Sophomore Jeff Nestler had his ear lobe, upper ear cartilage and tongue pierced, all on a whim last year. […]

Disaster averted?

I write in response to Silvana Del Carpio’s letter titled Residents neglected (Oct. 2), which concerned her Munson Hall room’s water pipe break. Without a doubt, this is an unfortunate situation and I in no way want to diminish what happened. However, I think we would all agree that what she endured is an unforeseen […]

Absentee advising at Columbian School

Students sometimes realize the importance of academic advising only when their academic plans take a turn for the worst. Just ask fifth-year GW student Emily Baier. Baier plans to graduate this spring with a degree in American Studies. Her professors assign about 600 pages of reading each week as she is tries to cram two […]
