Staff Editorial: Confronting Terrorists

information that would prevent a terrorist attack? Some countries readily answer “yes” to this question. The United States is a nation of laws, as lawmakers are fond of reminding us. And those laws are adequate to face terrorist threats. The newly signed U.S.A. Patriot Act, anti-terrorism legislation that grants law enforcement agencies broad surveillance powers […]

Week Two: Colonial Women set their own pace

From all indications, the GW women’s basketball team, which replaced its four graduated seniors with a highly touted freshman class, is advancing faster than last year’s team did at this point.

Letter: Roach residence

I am a resident of JBKO Hall and recently had my first experience with roaches and GW’s pest control services.

Post Sept. 11: Attacks change outlook

Sometimes when I go for a run, I go to the hallowed grounds of Arlington National Cemetery. The grounds, where so many of our bravest patriots peacefully rest, have a distinct, quiet power with an ability to move the most stoic visitors. Prior to Sept. 11, I would explore the cemetery with a sense of […]

Staff Editorial: Postal Problems

Students and University employees have experienced one of the unfortunate side effects from a District in high alert with slowed mail delivery. Of course, everyone understands that with deadly biological agents traveling around the city and surrounding areas through the postal system, delays will occur. But the U.S. Postal Service should be honest with the […]

Major studies service

Helping others is not simply what human services majors do on the weekend. It’s going to be their job. The human services program, one of three programs in the sociology department of the Columbian College of Arts and Sciences, is more than 20 years old.
