Information Systems and Services staff have taken all saved […]

Exploring Neon

Neon radiates from all ends, stimulating the pupils in a blinking series of blue light specials now on display at the Zenith Gallery. The exhibition, “Still Glowing After All These Years – Neon 2003,” illuminates the strip of coffeehouses and bookstores that dot Seventh Street with a Technicolor glow. With neon art, little is subject […]

UPD seeks additional 4-RIDE funding

Increased demand and long wait times led University Police to request additional funding for the 4-RIDE escort service, which has seen a 54 percent increase in student use this year. UPD Chief Dolores Stafford said she cannot attribute the increase to a specific cause but said it is not a “fluke.” She said UPD will […]

At the movies: Death and Deceit

The Recruit by Matt Windman 3 Hatchets “Nothing is what it seems.” Although this phrase is repeated often in The Recruit, the movie is basically an everyday action/psychological thriller with some notable qualities.

Forum: Taking on affirmative action

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 […]
