Courses combat boredom

I have only one word of seniorly advice for those GW students busy finalizing their schedules for spring registration: prostitution. Feast your eyes, gentle readers, because I am talking about pornography, stripping and phone sex. As Hans and Franz say, hear me now and believe me later: Fire up your MP3-burdened laptops, connect to GWeb […]

Student group ignores licensing facts

The GW Progressive Student Union posted several fliers inviting individuals to participate in a discussion about GW’s use of sweatshops. While students should engage in activities to abate violations of human, labor and civil rights, I am disappointed to see the PSU using false advertising about GW’s practices to garner attendance at its meetings. As […]

Coppedge hears sounds of victory

There are times in sports when an athlete comes along who defies the odds. Junior Erin Coppedge from the GW women’s soccer team is that kind of athlete. When the team found itself in a four-game losing streak in September, it needed to make a change. Coach Tanya Vogel decided to move Coppedge, a defender, […]

Spotlight: School Without Walls tells its tale

Rushing down G Street, students fly by the buildings where they spend much of their time during their tenure at GW. Whether scribbling notes during lectures at Funger Hall, screaming at basketball games at the Smith Center or grabbing meals at the GW Deli, students spend countless hours getting to know the edifices that line […]

Volleyball clinches A-10

An amazing regular season finished in first-place fashion Saturday night for the GW women’s volleyball team as the Colonials (23-5, 14-2 Atlantic 10) earned the top seed in the A-10 Tournament after a three-game sweep of visiting Duquesne. GW’s dominating 15-4, 15-5, 15-11, performance at the Smith Center allowed the team’s six seniors a victorious […]

Low slows down a bit to chat with The Hatchet

Sometimes one just wants to slow things down and enjoy a bit of peace and quiet. This is the niche acclaimed band Low fits neatly into. Since 1993, Low produced several critically acclaimed albums that helped define the slo-core sound – a somber and fragile sound – and offered achingly beautiful music. Guitarist and singer […]

Cross country finishes last

The GW women’s cross country teams finished last out of 24 teams at the NCAA Regionals at Penn State University Saturday. The GW men ran without David Azari and Devin Kennington and did not have the five-man roster needed to compete as a team. The meet allowed teams to qualify for an opportunity to contend […]

D.C. offers an array of eclectic locations to study

Turned off from noisy residence hall rooms the painful silence of the library, students say they branch out to quiet spots around the city for a better studying experience. The National Mall is a popular place for students to study outside. Junior Kevin Norman said the nation’s most historic landmarks offer a serene atmosphere his […]
