Letter: Religion revision

In the editorial “Disunion of faith” in your Monday paper (Jan. 21), it is suggested that the Christian slant of Bush’s inauguration has turned the event into “a forum for a vocal and irksome minority bent on pushing their faith on others.” I am amazed that you found calling Christianity “irksome” appropriate. Try doing that […]

GW wins free-throw battle

Entering Saturday’s game against St. Bonaventure, GW ranked fourth in the Atlantic 10 in free-throw percentage. But in their past seven contests, the Colonials had been outscored by their opponents from the line. The team went 2-5 in that stretch. GW broke that streak in its 76-68 win over the Bonnies Saturday, outscoring St. Bonaventure […]

Letter: Fraternal fantasy

As somebody who participated in Greek life as an undergraduate and benefited from the experience, and whose son is not only a member of a fraternity at his university but is president of his chapter, I get tired of hearing anti-fraternity and sorority conspiracy theories uttered by members of the Greek community at GW who […]

Construction continues as MPA opens for class

Students arriving in the new Media and Public Affairs building for class Monday will find a work in progress. On Friday workers were laying the brick sidewalk surrounded by a crane, masonry saws and pneumatic hammers as they raced to complete the facility for the move-in this week. “We have a certificate of occupancy for […]

Staff Editorial: Combating campus crime

The U.S. Department of Education released a report to Congress Jan. 18 insisting that “college campuses are safe.” Mandated by the Higher Education Amendments of 1998, the report details data collected under the Clery Act, which requires colleges and universities to release annual crime reports to the public. The government and institutions of higher learning […]

GW downs Bonnies for second straight win

St. Bonaventure’s four-game winning streak came to a crashing halt Saturday evening as the GW men’s basketball team defeated the visiting Bonnies 76-68. In the process, the Colonials began a modest two-game winning streak. The last time GW won two straight was back in November, when the Colonials defeated Howard and Boston universities. The victory […]

Staff Editorial: The day music died

Tori Amos, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Live, Blues Traveler, They Might be Giants, Cypress Hill, Bloodhound Gang – all these musical acts have played at GW in recent years. But no big artists will visit GW this spring. The Program Board has nixed the idea, citing scheduling, funding difficulties and a shift to funding more […]
