Midnight Madness welcomes basketball season

Midnight Madness will welcome the basketball season Friday evening with more basketball and less performance, Spirit Affairs Director Nicole Macchione said. “It’s going to be less of a carnival atmosphere,” Macchione said.

Justin Theroux aims for the right kind of success

Justin Theroux has sat on the sidelines long enough. A relatively new kid on the block, Theroux has quickly built a resume playing supporting roles in movies such as I Shot Andy Warhol and American Psycho. Tired of minor roles, Theroux has now hustled his way into the lead of Mulholland Drive, a new film […]

Kalb Report hosts Rather

CBS Evening News anchor and Managing Editor Dan Rather said America was “asleep” during the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks at a nationally-televised interview with veteran broadcaster Marvin Kalb Tuesday night. The GW-sponsored episode of “The Kalb Report” held at the National Press Club was packed with students, administrators and members of the press who raised […]

Audiences suffer slow death by cinema

Iron Monkey in theatres Friday With a mundane storyline and immature humor, Iron Monkey (Miramax) relies on sophisticated choreography to entertain but barely manages to capture audience approval. A shallow plot and depthless characters act as a backdrop for fight scenes. The film seems like only an excuse to show off imaginative choreography from Yuen […]

Blue lights ensure safety

Among students, it is no mystery that GW blue lights around campus are often out of order. They report seeing many of University Police’s 20 emergency phone stations disconnected and unusable at various times. On Monday, blue light phone number 14, located on G Street between 23rd and 24th streets, was covered with a plastic […]

The play focuses on a complex love story between two women who meet through coincidence, develop a friendship and ultimately fall in love. […]

The BZA ruled in a unanimous 5-0 decision to reinstate, in large part, previous campus requirements that were temporarily suspended, including a requirement that GW […]
