THE MOVIE BUFFS: Blade

Long Story Short: They call him the Daywalker. He’s half man, half vampire. He’s dedicated his life to hunting the latter. Unfortunately for Blade (Wesley Snipes), his job is about to get a lot harder. Unfortunately for the vampires, Blade has a really cool sword. Alan Says: For the past four years, people have been […]

Web unfit for housing

When students log on to GWeb Feb. 24 to choose housing for next year, they might not be able to pick the exact room they want, GW officials told the Residence Hall Association Friday. RHA President Noel Frame said Housing Services Director Andrew Sonn told her Friday that BannerWeb will only allow students to select […]

Planning for Spring Break

The weather is getting slightly warmer. The sun is beginning to stay out a little longer. And there is a somewhat restless feeling on campus. This can only mean one thing: Spring Break is near. Whether going home or jaunting off to another country or part of America, GW students are anticipating the impending week […]

Column: What about the Afghans?

When U2 performed during the halftime show of this year’s Super Bowl, my eyes welled up with tears, especially when the names of the victims of Sept. 11 were projected onto a giant screen stretching into the sky. In some strange way, halftime seemed natural and even necessary, like one big national exhalation of relief. […]

Spotlight: A shuttle ride away

Mount Vernon College holds the tradition of schooling smart and talented women. Hope Diamond owner Evelyn Walsh McLean, Radcliffe College President Ada Louise Comstock and Elizabeth Harris, co-founder of Ms. Magazine, are only a few among a list of leading alumnae. “Friends” star Courtney Cox even attended for a year before pursuing her acting career.

Since the question has come up in conversation with numerous administrators, I’d like to clarify why we found it important to report this news as soon as we had received it. Newspapers function […]

Temple loss typifies losing streak

Saturday’s home loss against Temple exemplified what has gone wrong for the Colonials during their current seven-game losing streak. GW displayed streaky shooting and sloppy passing in the most recent loss and dug themselves into a large first-half hole. For the seventh straight game, poor first-half shooting and turnovers cost the Colonials as they fell […]

Situation worsens as Colonials drop seventh straight

The Colonials gave ESPN viewers and the Smith Center crowd of more than 3,000 little to get excited about on Saturday as the team fell to Temple 80-58. The loss extended GW’s losing streak to seven during its first and likely only national television appearance this year. Coach Karl Hobbs’ team connected on less than […]

Sports: Colonial women prove their depth

Even with their three seemingly impossible last-second comebacks, untimely injuries are teaching GW it is not an invincible team. Last month, freshman Anna Montanana replaced senior Elena Vishniakova after a torn ACL ended the forward’s season. Now, Montanana is on the bench nursing a strained knee that has been a reoccurring problem all season and […]
