INTERVIEW: DC Drop-out spreads the word of Bad Religion

As Bad Religion’s latest adrenaline-packed release, Process of Belief, continues to fuel the masses, the band members themselves are surfing the wave of success on the road. Bad Religion’s lead guitarist Brian Baker is a long-time D.C. local and former GW student. In sitting with Baker, all pathways were open as conversation ranged from his […]

Column – On Your Tonsils: Real Excellence awards unveiled

I have been hearing about the Excellence in Student Life Awards for some time now, and just like in People magazine’s Sexiest Man list, I was snubbed. But what are these awards anyway? I can only imagine that they are excellent and thoughtful awards for students that do very good things on this campus. No, […]

Koken throws no hitter for first career win

Freshman Nick Koken threw a seven-inning no-hitter in the Colonials 17-0 win over Mt. St. Mary’s at Barcroft Park Thursday. The right-hander struck out six and did not walk a single batter his first collegiate win. Koken fell one pitch short of a perfect game- he hit the Mountaineers shortstop Jamion Christian with a pitch […]

BAR BELLE: says goodbye

I don’t know what to write. Perhaps I do not want to say adieu, or maybe words cannot express the emotions I feel within the recesses of my heart, but these last few weeks of my life at GW have been inexplicable. How does one say goodbye? It isn’t possible. I wish I had some […]

Letters: Falling short

I, like many GW seniors, am shocked to hear that our graduation speaker will be the president of another U.S. university.

Letters: Students unheard

Tuesday night was the final Student Association Senate meeting of the school year. Unfortunately, only a handful of students actually show up to our meetings and one must question why this happens. As this year’s undergraduate senator at-large, please allow me to give you an example of why this happens. At Tuesday’s meeting, I introduced […]

GW women build pillars of support

A woman has not run for the top spot in the Student Association for two years and has not been elected in three. In SA history, there has only been one female elected president: Carrie Potter, who served in 1998-99. While females have not shied away from top roles in other organizations, women leadership in […]

Baseball Beats GMU After Losing First-Place Bid

The Colonials knocked off George Mason Tuesday at Barcroft Park to rebound from Monday’s home loss against first-place Richmond. A win Monday would have put GW into first place in the Atlantic 10. Instead, the loss dropped GW into second place with six conference games remaining, including a series against third-place Xavier next weekend. Tuesday’s […]
