Staff Editorial: Why-won’t-it-workMail?

The GW e-mail sever has been down for more than five days, probably the longest most GW students have gone without being able to check their e-mail. While it is tempting to run and blame the University for the communications meltdown, other factors should be considered. Although this might seem like just another small technical […]

Letters to the editor: Students respond to e-mail woes

New names I had plenty of time to think over the weekend, because the e-mail server was down, about the $200 competition to rename the GW Webmail system. Here are my submissions. 1) Go noWhere Mail 2) GWished it worked Mail 3) GWhatMail? Please make the check payable to: -Jason Hill M.A., international education E-mail […]

Letters to the editor

Are you serious? I would like to take the opportunity to thank the highly acclaimed Provisions marketing team. The Panty Roses were really a nice touch. I mean, as students we should not expect to have things available that we really need, such as fresh vegetables or ripe fruit. But if I need silk underwear, […]

Bar Belle: One more for the road

Where: 2032 P St. NW Getting in: Carded by your server Cover: Need to spend at least $15 a person to stay. At Japone you can do that by blinking an eye. Dress: Trendy crowd. Jeans are fine, but they better be Seven’s. Cafe Japone can be described in two words. Sake Bomb. Any place […]

How it’s played

Squash has been referred to as the “athlete’s chess,” as it requires a great deal of strategy. The key to a good squash game is deception, and players hold their swing for longer periods of time to “hide” their moves and shot placement for as long as possible. Squash is played in an enclosed court […]

Men upset St. Joe’s to end losing streak

Students give mixed review of State of the Union

GW students had a range of reactions to President George W. Bush’s second State of the Union address Tuesday. Bush spoke about domestic issues but focused on making his case for a potential war with Iraq in the one-hour speech, during which he called his first two years “a good start.” The first half of […]

Squashing the competition

First-year Division I varsity programs face many obstacles. They must recruit new players, find equipment and struggle against more experienced opponents. But few freshman squads share the GW men’s squash team’s problem – they can’t find suitable competition. Head Coach Simon Harrington, a GW alumnus and former member of the GW 20-year-old club squash team, […]

News Analysis: Bush speaks on Iraq, economy

In his second State of the Union address George W. Bush sought to reassure the country that his attention was focused as much on the economic woes of the world’s last remaining superpower as it was on its foreign policy. Steeped in partisan political rhetoric and an almost Wilsonian championing of American ideals, Bush called […]
