Going abroad presents tough choices

Click. Double click: “Italy-Edu-Study Abroad.” I imagined it. Sitting in a piazza surrounded by narrow cobblestone streets lined with small, outdoor cafes and cooled by a Mediterranean breeze. A dark, olive-skinned waiter leans over to take my order, as perfect Italian flows from my lips. I am going to study abroad in Italy next spring, […]

D.C. seeks dismissal

D.C. hopes to end a legal battle with GW over campus plan restrictions before it starts. District lawyers filed a motion June 22 requesting a summary judgement to dismiss charges that restrictions imposed when the city passed its campus plan are unconstitutional.

WEB EXCLUSIVE: GW graduate commits suicide

A 24-year-old GW graduate was found dead in the trunk of her car July 25 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., apparently after committing suicide.

Inside underground cinema

As the 4th of July rolls by, the initial summer-movie hype is beginning to fizzle out. So, it may be true. The Fast and the Furious is an OK movie, and Crazy/Beautiful did have its high points. But where are the movies with depth, the unsung heroes of the summer season? They’re out there, just […]

Letter: GW’s good fight

In your June 11 editorial entitled “Admitting too much,” you cite the projected increase in the number of freshmen students this fall and assert that in making admissions decisions GW administrators could not have been “blindsided” by the Board of Zoning Adjustment “enrollment cap” imposed in the Campus Plan Order dated March 29. Unfortunately, your […]

GW sends grads to White House
