Spotlight: Law professor serves on NCAA committee of infractions

Between his lectures on the intricacies of conflict law and civil procedure, GW law professor Jack Friedenthal finds time to impart lessons on justice throughout the world of collegiate and professional athletics. Friedenthal, who served as dean of the GW Law School for 10 years before returning to teaching in 1998, is an authority on […]

Lil’ Wayne redefines Hot Boys formula

Fast bass beats to rattle the trunk, electronic sound effects to hit the tweeters and a hook repeated over and over for consistency; songs produced by the members of Hot Boys crew are easy to spot, and to anyone unfamiliar with this unique rapping style, they all sound the same. While Lil’ Wayne’s voice is […]

MPA debuts new classroom technology

The opening of the new Media and Public Affairs building Monday welcomes “fiber to the chair” technology to GW’s classrooms and a new GWTV studio capable of producing broadcast quality video, University officials said. Most classrooms and auditorium seats in the MPA building will be wired with electrical jacks and fiber-optic data ports, allowing students […]

Column: Quoth the Ravens, it’s Baltimore

And you can book this one to the Birds. The Baltimore Ravens proved that defense truly does win championships. Despite coming close to disaster a couple times, the special teams and offense played good enough to allow the defense to just do its thing. And that’s all they needed to do. Kerry Collins succumbed to […]

Letter: Crude protest

I am shocked and appalled after reading Monday’s Hatchet (“Bush, Cheney honor veterans at GW,” Jan. 21, p. 1). To begin with, what did the protesters hope to accomplish when they picketed the Smith Center on Friday at an event honoring the veterans? Perhaps this was just simply an exercise in self-aggrandizement. After all it […]

DCD: Group rings in new year China style

January 27, 2001 Marvin Center 413 7:30 p.m. When Americans think of the new year, they think champagne, yelling in large crowds and the bright ball that drops in Times Square. Within my first step into Marvin Center room 413 to celebrate the Chinese New Year, I realized the Chinese take a slightly different approach. […]

Student group brings D.C. underground to GW

Who says the D.C. music scene is dead? Well, actually a lot of people are saying that these days. The infamous D.C. underground scene of yesteryear has largely dissipated in recent years. Club closings have made it harder for smaller bands to find suitable venues. For this reason many bands are opting to take their […]

GW renames Columbian School to remember past

GW will change the name of the Columbian School of Arts and Sciences to the Columbian College of Arts and Sciences in July to return to its roots and alleviate confusion about the organization of the school. Faculty and administrators “had never been thrilled about the name to begin with,” University President Stephen Joel Trachtenberg […]

Spring Break Guide: Campus quiets down during week off class

The Rasta culture of Jamaica, the wild slopes of the Rockies, big-wave surfing off of Hawaii or even another tranquil week in the pre-tourist season at the Jersey shore? Negative. For me, I spent my first college Spring Break right here in D.C. in a week of virtual solitude. The cleaning staff and me spending […]
