It’s a woman’s world

Absolute Pleasure Productions and the Feminist Majority Leadership Alliance performed Eve Ensler’s “The Vagina Monologues” at Western Presbyterian Church to raise money for […]

Gymnastics team beats Maryland, helps cause for Regionals

With only four meets remaining to post regional-qualifying scores, the GW gymnastics team helped its cause Saturday, posting a 193.950 to beat Maryland in a dual meet at College Park.

Trading spaces GW style

At 10 a.m. Saturday, the ground was damp, the sky was gloomy and most people on campus were warm and cozy, asleep in their beds. I made my way over to the Program Board office, ready to observe a day of room swapping and redecorating – “Trading Spaces” style. Junior Kate Currier and sophomore Erica […]

Staff Editorial: Zoning limits budget

University officials have known since December 2001 that zoning regulations would require GW to house 70 percent of undergraduates within the defined campus boundaries or outside Foggy Bottom, but only now is the University planning to actually comply with the law.

Column: Reexamining a ‘beneficial relationship’

With the ongoing discourse on mutually beneficial relationships between the United States and foreign nations, I find it fitting to throw in my two cents on the matter. I, for one, wholeheartedly support the continuation of a mutually beneficial relationship with the Jewish state of Israel. The largest recipient of U.S. foreign aid in the […]

Water Polo splits home invitational

The GW women’s water polo team hosted its first and last home match of the season, losing to Navy Aquatic Club but beating Salem International in the final match. The match was the last one at the Smith Center for the team’s five seniors and head coach Scott Reed said it was nice to send […]

Column: Not all Americans agree with Bush

Walking out of the International School building at the University of Amsterdam, my friends and I were stopped by a woman asking if we were Americans. For a moment, we all hesitated to answer yes, as it was not clear as to what the woman wanted. This has become the norm for students living abroad […]

GW names budget priorities

GW’s budget for next year includes changes that will once again allow students to buy cigarettes with their meal plan and possibly force upperclassmen to live in the Hall on Virginia Avenue. The budget, which University officials discussed with the Board of Trustees this weekend, will impact students with student life initiatives such as a […]
