Another tragic day in rock

Layne Staley 1967-2002 Grunge is dead, literally. The body of Layne Staley was found in his Seattle home Friday. His death was not a shock to fans, but rather an anticipated, inevitable horror. The agonized, brooding vocalist/lyricist for Alice in Chains and Mad Season had long been enduring the self-destructing and unrelenting clutch of drug […]

Richmond brings fierce hurlers

The smooth sailing could end this weekend as the Colonials will face No. 24 Richmond, a team that may have the strength on the mound to halt the Colonials hot offense. Spider sophomore Tim Stauffer, one of the first 19 players to be invited to the USA Baseball National Team Trials, is Richmond’s probable game-one […]

How ’bout a boost?

Did I eat today? So many things to do so little time. In between juggling classes, schoolwork, internships, extracurriculars and time with friends, it’s often hard to find time to follow a healthy diet when most college meals come pre-prepared. Getting in all the necessary nutrients and vitamins every day can be difficult, and students […]

Women’s water polo faces Michigan

The women’s water polo team earned the eighth seed at this weekend’s 12-team Eastern Championships in Princeton, N.J.

Colonials take two wins into conference series

The Colonials posted two big wins this week, neither of which came easily.

Male hippos take ultimate victory

The Hungry Hungry Hippos, the GW men’s ultimate Frisbee team, went undefeated to win its sectional tournament at Salisbury State University last weekend. With the win, the Hippos received a second-seed berth to the regional tournament in Princeton N.J. A top-three finish at regionals would give the Hippos an invitation to the national championship tournament […]

Staff editorial: Freeze the hotline

The hotline that enables GW faculty, students and employees to file anonymous complaints against any University employee is too vulnerable for abuse and an illegitimate solution to the problem that spurred its creation – protecting the University from potential lawsuits stemming from a staff member’s conduct. The new complaint line, dubbed the compliance line by […]

Women’s rugby takes two of three in Ruggerfest

The GW women’s rugby club won two matches as the youngest entry and the only collegiate team in last weekend’s Ruggerfest. The tournament at Rosecroft Raceway in Maryland included 13 teams. This is GW’s best finish so far in its third year in the tournament. The women capped off the Ruggerfest by pulling off a […]

Staff editorial: Pay scale

Although salaries are only a part of what attracts professors to GW, administrators should pay more attention to what other schools are paying professors. Ranked 10th out of 14 market basket schools, GW is far from being where it could be. With GW in the middle of a massive expansion of its facilities, resources are […]
