Unity key after attacks

While I respect the views of all Americans, if anyone had truly read Bill Eldridge’s editorial (” Wrong to protest retaliation for terror,” Sept. 17, p. 5), they would have seen that he did not advocate violence. Regardless whether he believed our country should or should not be engaging in military activity, he wrote Americans […]

‘Crossfire’ returns for another week

“Crossfire” co-hosts Tucker Carlson and Bill Press engaged the GW student body in friendly banter to warm up for a live broadcast from campus Thursday.

Letter to the Editor: Remembering a friend

On the morning of Sept. 11, Andrew Stergiopoulos was brutally taken from us. Sterg, as he was known to most of his friends, was a lot like you and me. We met while we were both at GW. He was a smart guy with a quick wit and a rare talent. He was able to […]

Men’s soccer stumps Radford at home

The GW men’s soccer team defeated Radford University 3-1 in a physical match Sunday at the Mount Vernon field. It was the team’s final game before conference play. GW’s defense set the game’s tone early by keeping Radford away from the goal. The Colonials countered a Radford offense that controlled the ball early on, and […]

National Airport grounds travel plans

GW students are changing travel plans because Reagan National airport, the hub of D.C. shuttle service to Boston and New York City, remains closed for security precautions. National is the most popular airport for downtown D.C. residents largely because of the popular shuttle service offered by Delta Airlines and US Airways. It is the only […]
