SJT looks for temp fill in

The Faculty Senate is debating a proposal to appoint a University provost, who would fill in for GW President Stephen Joel Trachtenberg when he is away.

Op-Ed: Protestors’ success not defined by turnout

Every time I attend anti-corporate globalization protests, like the upcoming events this weekend at the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund meetings, I meet people who tell me to stop wasting my time.

FSP: Olympic hopeful sets sights on conference dominance

Rarely does an athlete have realistic Olympic aspirations after competing for only three years in her sport.

FSP: Defense is key to water polo’s success

When asked about GW’s rivalries, most students reply with the usual suspects- Georgetown and Maryland. Not so, says Gur Doitel of the GW men’s water polo team. “We have a huge rivalry with Bucknell and Johns Hopkins,” Doitel, a red-shirt junior from Palo Alto, Calif. said. “It can get pretty heated.” Every year, it seems, […]
