GW: ‘B’ students and proud of it

Over the last few months, I’ve marveled at how “GW” I’ve become. I recently got a cell phone and started working out at the “Hell-Well.” I’m living in D.C. for the summer and have been hanging out at intern nights- weeknight specials at local bars. I say “random” to mean “bad” and I sport a […]
