Milosevic prosecutor lectures

Former prosecutor for the International Criminal Tribunal Nancy Patterson told about 60 GW Law School students Monday how to overcome the challenges of bringing war criminals to justice.

CRs, CDs join for debate

Members of the GW College Democrats and College Republicans broke with party lines in a parliamentary debate over criticism of the president during times of crises Tuesday night in the Marvin Center.

GW students rethink decision to study abroad

GW is encouraging students to continue with plans to study abroad next semester but with an added note of caution.

GW mail delayed

GW officials await precautionary anthrax tests from Foggy Bottom and Mount Vernon Campus mail facilities before giving any guarantees that packages and letters around campus are completely safe.

Hospital, SHS respond to calls

New guidelines for treating possible anthrax patients have led the University to use Student Health Services as the first contact for evaluating students. Now that new Center for Disease Control guidelines discourage the use of nasal swab tests, Student Health Services will begin evaluating and treating any students who were in high-risk areas where anthrax […]

Coen brothers fall short

The Coen brothers have brought some of the most original movies in the ’90s to the public eye. Fargo, The Big Lebowski and O Brother Where Art Thou apply an often dark sense of humor to offbeat scenarios and unpredictable plots. But with The Man Who Wasn’t There, the brothers’ homage to the classic black-and-white […]

One last dance at the Wilson Center

This is how the revolution began: a dozen bands and a bunch of kids in some ratty basement screaming their lungs out. D.C. punk rock, pure and innocent. Now, almost 20 years later, that same basement – the infamous Wilson Center in the heart of D.C. – is legendary. After two decades as an epicenter […]
