Greek Life expands at GW

With three fraternities and five sororities slated to move into GW’s new Townhouse Row in the fall, leaders in the Greek-letter community said they are looking forward to an increased presence on campus. Currently, 14 percent of students are involved with Greek-letter life, said Michael Gargano, associate vice president for Student and Academic Support Services. […]

Reviews: Down with Love

Down with love! Well, down with love that doesn’t involve Ewan McGregor. That’s the conclusion I came to by watching “Down With Love” (Twentieth Century Fox). While the movie is cute and entertaining, it is carried by its star power. The dreamy McGregor and his hint of a Scottish brogue will make the women in […]

Within These Walls

The truth is going to come out at some point, so I may as well state it sooner rather than later – strange things happen in Thurston Hall. It is an accepted part of GW life. Whether you are a resident or a visitor, you will see, do or smell something you wish you wouldn’t […]

Beyond Thurston

The club scene may not be your cup of tea, but if you are under 21 and looking for something fun to do on the weekends, there are a variety of clubs just waiting to take your cover and stamp your hand. Maybe you want to go to a place where you know you will […]

What to do at GWU

Welcome to college: 15 hours a week of class, maybe another 12 for a job and then a wild nirvana of free time that most incoming freshmen can barely imagine. It’s great at first, but then the shock wears off and most people find themselves asking, “What am I going to do for the next […]

The Classroom, The Campus, The City

Soon after incoming freshmen leave Colonial Inauguration, they will know GCRs from CRNs, and ESIA from SMPA. But while the CI staff and advisers provide information and assistance, it is just a student, the computer and a race against time during course registration on the last day of CI. However, there is good news. Everyone […]

Freshman Battle of the Sexes

Q: I have been dating my girlfriend for the past year, but we are both going to different colleges this year. How hard is it to do the whole long distance relationship thing freshman year? Should we stay together and hope for the best or should I be free my freshman year? Is it even […]

Reviews: Hollywood Homicide

L.A. is a place that scares me. What scares me is not the seedy atmosphere, but the fact that if I ever get killed there, a goof-ball like Josh Hartnett would be policing my corpse. “Hollywood Homicide” (Columbia Pictures) is a movie based in some very generic concepts. Joe Gavilan (Harrison Ford) is the hard-nosed […]
