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.

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.

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 […]
