File sharing is an integral part of student life in colleges across the country. Even after the government shut down Napster, a plethora of new […]

Staff editorial: Maybe something does happen here

Something does happen at GW, but students who were stuck in Gelman studying for midterms may have missed three of the most distinguished visitors the campus has seen in a while.

Stealing Home: Why watch?

Back in spring training, who would have thought the San Francisco Giants and Anaheim Angels would be fighting it out at the end of October in the World Series? Nobody. At the beginning of the playoffs, who would have thought for the first time ever the two wildcard winners would make the World Series? Nobody. […]

Slugs speed district commute

Every weekday for the past two years, GW alum Jeffery Hatton has been doing exactly what his mother always warned him not to do when he was younger – accepting rides from complete strangers. The International Monetary Fund employee is part of a growing number of District area professionals who proudly call themselves “slugs.” When […]
