The Rich Life: If you like this, hire me!

When my editor asked me to write my first column on procrastination, I laughed at the irony of a born procrastinator giving advice on avoiding procrastination. Nevertheless, I churned out a few tongue-in-cheek tips. Then I got my second assignment, a Valentine’s Day guide. Again, funny topic for me, a guy coming off a rough […]

Men’s defense freezes Spiders

Only about a thousand students braved the blizzard outside the Smith Center Sunday to see the GW men’s basketball team play Richmond, but those that made it soon found they were in for a treat. In a rare blowout in GW’s favor, the Colonials cruised to a 64-50 win to snap a three-game skid. The […]

An alternate way to spend post-grad years

When Eve Goldberg assigned her second grade class to read a book at home for homework last year, she thought it would be a simple assignment, but none of her students did it. “A lot of my kids don’t have any books at home – no books. That was a shock,” Goldberg said. Goldberg, who […]

Out of Bounds: Men’s Basketball

After struggling through much of the season, junior Greg Collucci broke out of a slump with nine points on 3-for-5 shooting from three-point range Sunday. The shooting guard had not made more than one three-pointer in a game all season and was shooting 20 percent from behind the arc going into Sunday’s game. “I still […]

Pursuing further education

There are only three months left before graduation. For many seniors, the days of partying late, waking up late and choosing sleep instead of classes are numbered. So does this mean, gasp, getting a job? It could, unless seniors are willing to stay in school for another few years to further their education. Harsh economic […]

Women bounce back to win

After a blown lead and overtime battle against Massachusetts Thursday brought on shades of GW’s quadruple overtime loss to Xavier, head women’s basketball coach Joe McKeown and his team weren’t about to make the same mistake Saturday. They didn’t, thrashing visiting Duquesne 95-63 at the Smith Center. With Saturday’s win and Thursday’s six-point victory over […]

Battle of the Sexes

Question: I’m in my first serious relationship with a guy, and lately, every time we hook up he offers to go down on me. Actually, it’s more like he insists on performing oral sex, but this idea totally repulses me. I don’t mind doing it to him, but I am way too embarrassed and disgusted […]

Atlantic 10 Shootout to be held Tuesday

So maybe the men’s basketball team won’t make it to the conference finals, but GW students could still have the opportunity to travel to the Atlantic 10 Championships. The winners of the Atlantic 10 Shootout, a conference-wide contest starting this Thursday, will travel to the A-10 Championships to compete in the tournament’s final round. Each […]

Conden coasts to first win

After a brief slumber Saturday night, the Colonials’ bats came to life as the GW baseball team tallied 14 hits in an 11-3 rout of Maryland Sunday at the Amtrak Invitational in Deland, Fl. With the win, the Colonials placed second in the four-team tournament. The Colonials (2-1) scored only two runs in Saturday’s loss […]
