Out of bounds: Men’s basketball game notes

T.J. battles younger brother When GW sophomore point guard T.J. Thompson stepped onto the court in Friday’s win over Mt. St. Mary’s, one of his opponents looked strikingly familiar. That’s because Thompson’s brother, Landy, is a freshman on the Mountaineers. “That was the first time we ever played against each other our whole lives, so […]

SPECIAL HOLIDAY BAR BELLE: So many nights, so many drinks

Crisp cool air. Freshly fallen snow. Tinsel adorns every corner. All signs of the impending holiday season. And what do I think of when I think holiday cheer? Friends gathered around a fire, gaily signing carols? No. Potato latkes, applesauce and the warm glow of Hanukkah candles? No. Children bundled up in mittens, sticking carrots […]

Joens breaks out as Colonials split

Any doubts that may have surfaced when GW’s leading scorer Cathy Joens sat out of the women’s first exhibition game and turned in an uncharacteristic 11-point performance against Howard were quelled as the senior guard racked up 50 points in two games last week.

Protesters shouted the names of countries deeply affected by AIDS – Botswana, South Africa, […]

Forum: Attacking the AIDS epidemic

From the left: Increase prevention and treatment by Bernard Pollack In light of the recent commemoration of World AIDS Day, the Bush administration needs to drastically change the U.S. policy toward AIDS, both domestically and internationally. Worldwide, 14,000 people are infected with HIV each day, and the number of people with HIV or AIDS will […]

Guest column: Local government shafts students

Students get the shaft from the District of Columbia. There’s no doubt that as a group we’re routinely screwed over by our representatives on every level of government. In the summer of 1996, Jack Evans, our D.C. councilman, spearheaded the passage of emergency legislation that essentially prevented students from parking our cars on the streets […]

Dear Santa…

From digital cameras to trips halfway around the world, GW students know what they want this holiday season. For many students, the end of the fall semester means more than final exams and papers. The winter months also represent the heart of the gift-giving season and the joy of the receiving side of the season. […]
