Commencement calamity

My roommate called the Registrar’s Office to find out how many tickets were available to each senior for the Commencement ceremony. The director told her the information was not available because it had not yet been decided whether graduation would be on the Ellipse or in the MCI Center. Curious, I made the same phone […]

Staff editorial: Up in smoke

A Munson Hall oven caught fire and filled the building with smoke Wednesday. In light of the January Seton Hall fire that was responsible for three deaths, GW students and the University must be vigilant in preventing a similarly catastrophic fire at GW. While GW is not unique in providing kitchens to its students, there […]

Greek gaffe

As members of the National Pan-Hellenic Council, we are writing this letter to inform GW community of our protest of Greek Week, which took place last week, Oct. 18-22.

Bush signed numerous patient protection bills including one to allow patients to appeal denials of care through an independent review process and take HMOs to court. In fact, Bush fought vigorously against […]

Program Board reformats graduate branch

Program Board formed the Graduate Programming Committee in late September to better represent graduate students. The group replaces the Graduate and Professional Student Alliance. The decision was initiated by the Program Board in order to represent the entire graduate student population, said Alicia O’Neil, PB graduate affairs chair. The agreement was written by me and […]

Staff editorial: Security slip

A man followed two female students into Aston Hall early Sunday morning and attempted to rob them in an elevator. While the students escaped unharmed, the incident probably would not have occurred if the University employed effective security measures in the Aston. The most disturbing element is that there was neither a Community Host nor […]

Honors Program prepares for move

GW Honors Program Director David Alan Grier said he is looking for student leadership to help the program’s partial relocation to the Mount Vernon Campus. He met with members of the Honors Program Tuesday night in Lafayette Hall to explain the changes for next year. The University announced last week plans to house 50 current […]
