Alumna enjoys classroom challenge

When I graduated from GW in 1997, I felt confident I had received a quality education. Almost four years later, however, I maintain that my undergraduate education pales when contrasted with the lessons I learned teaching high school english in the Mississippi Delta. In April, 1998 I applied for and was granted acceptance into Teach […]

IFC seeks more self-governance

The Interfraternity Council laid out plans to expand GW’s fraternity system and maintain self-governance despite past failures at its first meeting of the semester Jan. 22. GW granted the IFC partial self-governance in September, allowing fraternities to oversee cases that involve minor infractions. The University has also accepted the application of one of two fraternities […]

Vishniakova, Alexander answer prayers in win over Temple

The Colonial women won Sunday’s game against Temple with 52 second-half points in a 78-67 win. Forward Elena Vishniakova scored a career-high 25 points and guard Kristeena Alexander dogged Temple’s quick guard Stacey Smalls for all 40 minutes of the game, forcing Temple’s leading scorer to give up the ball at critical times late in […]

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 […]

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 […]
