Spotlight: A transvestite sing-along

As Halloween quickly approaches, some people are carving their pumpkins and baking their pumpkin seeds. But one group on campus in particular has been diligently preparing for the holiday: the cast and crew of the GW production of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.” The group performed the show, known for its unconventional nature, Saturday night […]

Interns anticipate getting back to work

GW students interning on Capitol Hill who have had a week and a half off of work said they are eager to return despite recent discoveries of anthrax in the area. “It’s been a nice break, but I’m ready to go back,” said junior Arianna Gleckel, an intern for Sen.

Arts: Romance rises above morality

Few films manage to make unconfessed infidelity, sex in exchange for diamonds and incestuous relationships the topics of a light-hearted romantic comedy. What is Hollywood thinking? The gleefully refreshing Va Savoir does just that. An intellectualized amorality governs its characters, a non-Christian ideology not often found in American films, but sincerely played out in this […]

GW Hospital tests students

The GW Hospital has tested about 500 people for anthrax exposure during the past two weeks, as spores of the bacteria are found in more buildings in the D.C. area. Four people who were in high-risk areas were admitted for further evaluation after they showed symptoms of anthrax, said hospital spokeswoman Marti Harris. Hospital officials […]

Acting transcends poor plot

Infusing the audience with an overwhelming feeling of anxiety and depression, Charter Theatre’s presentation of Christopher Wall play “Couldn’t Say” thrusts the audience into the middle of an oppressive portrait that examines the role of time and loss in a failing marriage. The play opens with a frosty blue light reflecting off a tangle of […]

Malaysian Kopitiam mixes Asian dishes

When eating at Malaysia Kopitiam, you’re never really sure what type of food you’ll get. An appetizer may make you wonder if you stumbled into an unknown Indian restaurant. Your main course may make you question whether you’re in Chinatown, and your fellow diner’s entree would have you believe that you were in a Thai […]

Losses damage tourney chances

A pair of losses on the road this weekend severely damaged the GW men’s soccer team’s postseason chances. Massachusetts defeated GW 2-1 Sunday afternoon and Rhode Island defeated GW 3-1 Friday afternoon. The Colonials (7-7-0, 4-5-0 A-10) are tied for fifth place in the Atlantic 10 with Duquesne and Xavier. All three teams trail Richmond, […]

Men grab fifth place at A-10s

Sophomore David Azari ran his way to an 18th place finish at this weekend’s Atlantic 10 Championships, helping the GW men’s cross country team move up three places in the A-10 standings. The women, led by freshman Mary Beth McCullough, were unable to improve on last year’s run and placed 10th. La Salle men’s team […]

Bargain hunting in the District

Dinner at the Four Seasons in Georgetown dressed in a designer Versace outfit followed by front-row seats for Broadway show at the National Theater might be a typical Saturday night for D.C.’s wealthier residents. But college students without a budget the size of the capital can still afford to have a good time in the […]

Swimming and Diving splits

The GW women’s swimming and diving team won two swimming events and both diving events to give the Colonials a 133-110 victory over the James Madison University Dukes at the Smith Center Saturday. The men fell to the Dukes 123-93. Both teams were defeated in the season-opener against Notre Dame Friday evening as the Fighting […]
