Weezer brought this scene back Friday night at the Yahoo! Sponsored “Commercial Sell-Out Tour 2001,” set in American University’s bender Arena. […]

Students compare off-campus choices

GW students must once again make a gamble choosing to find housing in the District’s tight real estate market or the University’s limited residence hall options. “Housing is a huge issue at this school,” said Kristin McLeod, a sophomore living in The Aston. “There just isn’t enough space.” At colleges with suburban or rural settings, […]

Urban schools find housing solutions

Urban universities faced with the problems of tight real estate markets and space constrictions deal with providing on-campus housing for students in different ways.
