Letter to the Editor: Recycling ruse?

I am skeptical about the article, “Groups promote campus recycling” (Nov. 29, p. 1) which is an attempt to convince GW students and faculty that the University does actually recycle. Every morning for two years, I watched the GW housekeeping staff mix trash and recyclables into the same bags. Whenever I asked about this, I […]

Hart Murmurs: Reject military tribunals

Even President George W. Bush’s harshest critics have to admit that thus far the military operation in Afghanistan has run surprisingly smoothly. Luckily for those who still would not trust Bush as far as they could throw him, there is plenty to complain about concerning security measures taken since Sept. 11. Hints of a South […]

Around Campus

‘A Night to Unite’ raises money for WTC victims Three hundred students packed the Hippodrome Friday to listen to an array of bands and remember the victims of the Sept. 11 attacks.

The announcement comes late in the game for the RHA , which will now be unable to achieve its goal to eliminate the housing waiting list. “For (the University) to announce this in December is not […]

HOVA sprinklers flood rooms

About 440 Hall on Virginia Avenue residents were left homeless for about seven hours Friday after a sprinkler and several fire alarms went off at 5:14 a.m. Alarms went off after a sprinkler outside room 718 was reportedly tampered with, said Michael Peller, managing director for Business Services. “We hope that investigation and surveillance tapes […]

Letter to the Editor: Regulate vendors

All at once, GW icon Manouch is being forced off of campus while food trucks foul up the area outside Kogan Plaza and its million dollar gates. GW and the D.C. government should follow New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani’s example in setting up marketplaces for vendors. Managing public space should be a shared issue […]

Posted 1:30 a.m. Dec. 13- Court proceeding began this week in a sexual discrimination case against GW. Former head trainer Jacquelyn Jenkins is suing the University in D.C.
