A ‘masterpiece of suck’

I’m writing to praise everyone involved with Midnight Madness. I came expecting to see the usual Midnight Madness: Silly contests and giveaways combined with an emcee who no one can hear (which is a good thing, since hearing them is usually worse than not hearing them). Instead, this year we were treated to a spectacle […]

Staff editorial: Honors exile at MVC

The Board of Trustees responded to students’ concerns and officially approved plans to make the Mount Vernon Campus co-educational. The method by which the University plans to do this, however, is flawed. Administrators plan to make MVC an honors campus with the goal of housing 300 honors students there by 2003. Next year, 100 freshmen […]

Peace begins in our hearts, minds

People often fail in their responsibilities to do good and to avoid hurting others. We get so caught up in our own agendas, both personal and political, that we lose sight of what is important. In the Middle East, it seems we have lost sight of peace and why it is important as well. Peace […]

Osborne scores twice but Colonials win once

Two road wins last weekend would have put the GW men’s soccer team in strong positioning for a late Atlantic 10 playoff push, but the Colonials settled for a split with a win at Duquesne Friday and a loss at St. Bonaventure Sunday. The 1-0 win at Duquesne and 2-1 loss to St. Bonaventure gave […]

Understanding our electronic age

Should it resist the pull of the internet by making its campus ever more attractive, ever more laden with interest and entertainment? Or would […]

Etiquette savvy

Marvin Center room??Oct. 21, 200010:15 a.m. Not being the most etiquette-savvy kid out there, I decided to attend the Business Etiquette Seminar sponsored by the L.E.A.D. Center. One problem was that I had to be there by 10 a.m. and I could not exactly show up looking like a mess – my most frequent offense […]

Volleyball pummels Rams at home

Behind the dazzling play of senior Renee Arnold, the GW volleyball team mowed through visiting Fordham 3-0 Saturday night at the Smith Center. Despite its early dominance against the Rams, GW had trouble closing out each of the three games. GW won 15-5, 15-9 and 15-7 over a Fordham team that Colonials head coach Jojit […]

Spacey and Hunt Pay it Forward in new film

Giving somebody a car. Giving a homeless man shelter. Helping two people fall in love. All are part of a new phenomenon sweeping the nation in Mimi Leder’s new movie, Pay It Forward. Pay it Forward has been highly anticipated because of its Oscar-friendly cast, all of whom are coming off huge performances. The cast […]

GW falls to St. Bonaventure

The GW women’s soccer team split its weekend Atlantic 10 matches and must win its final two matches and receive help in order to qualify for the A-10 Tournament Nov. 3. The Colonials (5-12, 4-4 A-10) fell to St. Bonaventure Sunday and defeated visiting Duquesne Friday afternoon. The top four A-10 teams in points qualify […]
