Staff Editorial: Arresting alcohol use

Undercover Metropolitan Police officers arrested five GW students in front of Tokay Liquors in Columbia Plaza – an apartment complex partially owned by the University – for underage possession of alcohol Friday.

I am amazed the administration has failed both to stop promoting the Ellipse as the site of Commencement ceremonies and to […]
