Letter to the Editor: 4-RIDE or 4-WAIT?

I read with some interest “SA opposes fee” (Nov. 5, p. 1), in which University Police Department Director Dolores Stafford claims she received no complaints regarding 4-RIDE service this semester.

Getting in: carded at the bar Prices: mid-range Food: yup Dancing: ummm . . . no Pluses: good drink specials A magnificent thought sprang into the Bar Belle’s brain as she walked to Georgetown with friends on a chilly night: they would go to Marshall’s.

Staff Editorial: Stamp out hazing

This has been a busy week for GW’s unrecognized fraternities. Zeta Beta Tau’s national organization revoked the GW chapter’s charter after parents of pledges lodged complaints of hazing. And Sigma Alpha Epsilon members kidnapped two of the fraternity’s members Tuesday outside Funger Hall. These two significant and credible reports of hazing in such a short […]
