‘Chorus Line’ gives singular sensation

In most musicals the chorus performers blend together to become a wallpaper of sorts behind the stars. In GW’s “A Chorus Line” the opposite occurs. The chorus members are the leads. Each member of the talented cast is strong and complex, adding a fresh dimension to the show. “A Chorus Line” provides a glimpse into […]

Sports: In win, men show variety of scoring weapons

Jaason Smith and freshman T.J. Thompson combined for 39 points to help Karl Hobbs win his first exhibition game, a 99-84 victory over the University All-Stars Saturday at the Smith Center. The Colonials scrambled to score six points in the final minutes after sloppy second-half defense allowed the All-Stars to cut a 17-point deficit to […]

Staff Editorial: Taking out the trash

For the first time, the Foggy Bottom Cleanup was held in the fall with plans to repeat the event during the spring. About 150 students participated Saturday, picking up an estimated 75 bags of trash from Foggy Bottom sidewalks and streets. With such high attendance and having performed an important community service, the event was […]

In loss, poor shooting, turnovers lead to Colonials demise at home

The Colonial women could not overcome sloppy offense or their high turnover percentage in a 74-63 exhibition loss to Moscow’s Dynamo, a talented Russian team whose members have Olympic experience. Rusty shooting hindered GW’s chances at cutting a deficit that ran as high as 15 points in the second half. The Colonials went 0-for-13 from […]

Staff Editorial: Fight Gelman fee

How else can GW squeeze a few more dollars from students’ pockets? No doubt many students think administrators spend long hours pondering this very question. Frankly, we are beginning to think the same thing. Gelman Library has indicated that it is moving forward with plans to institute a fee for printing on library-owned computers, and […]

The MJ Effect: Fill ’em up?

In 930 NBA games, Michael Jordan averaged more than 30 points a game, shooting 50 percent from the floor, 80 percent at the free throw line and 33 percent beyond the arc. He won five MVP awards and six World Championships. Michael Jordan has done it all. But can he fill seats at the MCI […]

Letter to the Editor: Broke no longer

Sometimes there are sentiments of discontent when issues are misconstrued between two different organizations. I am a GW women’s rugby team player and an Elliott School Senator in the SA. As a member of both these groups, I feel I should clarify any misconceptions concerning the editorials flying around the women’s rugby team and the […]

Men’s soccer ends season with win

The GW men’s soccer team learned just before its game Friday that it could no longer qualify for the Atlantic 10 Championships. But the team showed there was still plenty to play for as it beat Duquesne 2-1 in double-overtime Friday and St. Bonaventure 3-1 Sunday at Mount Vernon. Sunday’s affair was Senior day, but […]

Students help clean Foggy Bottom

Students filled 75 black garbage bags with bottles, cans, boxes and cigarette butts that once littered Foggy Bottom Saturday during a joint effort with residents to clean up the neighborhood. About 150 students, about twice as many as last year, and a handful of local residents gathered at St. Mary’s Court on 24th Street for […]

Women’s soccer splits final weekend

Although neither team had a chance to move onto post-season play, the GW women’s soccer ended its season on a positive note beating St. Bonaventure 3-0 Sunday in New York. Senior Tiffany Williams notched a hat trick and sophomore goalkeeper Christine O’Malley grabbed her fourth shutout of the season. Prior to the win, the Colonials […]
