Cheap eats, cheap drinks

Las Placitas 517 8th Ave. SE Washington, D.C. 20003 (202) 543-3700 (off of the orange and blue lines, Eastern Market Metro) Getting off the Eastern Market Metro at night, you might wonder what exactly you are getting yourself into. The neighborhood seems pretty tough and isn’t a good place to walk around alone after the […]

Survey says: GW students politically active, live in palaces

With categories such as “Top Party School,” “Most Religious Students” and “Best Campus Dorms,” the recent Princeton Review rankings leave many GW students wondering whether the subjective reviews are legitimate. The 2004 edition of “The Best 351 Colleges” ranked GW third in “Students most politically active,” tenth in “Dorms like palaces” and tenth in “Great […]

Column: Andy, Vermont and Marriage

A few days ago I found myself thumbing through my porn collection thinking, “Is this really what I want in my life?” Sure, watching two semi-attractive strangers make the beast with two backs is more romantic than staring at a white wall for the rest of your life, but isn’t there something more to life?

Festival brings the blues to D.C.

The skies weren’t blue, but the music was. The D.C. Blues Festival, punctuated by periods of heavy rain and thunder, featured eight hours of blues music for free at the outdoor Carter Barron Amphitheatre Saturday. Held annually by the D.C.

As evidenced by his […]

Pat Lee, manager of the bookstore, said students can still buy computers and computer products at the software desk located on the store’s first floor.

Letters to the Editor

Transparency a god I fear that the student body may be misled by Student Association Senator Asher Corson’s recent letter to the editor (“Bring transparency to SA,” Aug. 25, p. 7). Corson’s letter would have students believe that our student government proceedings are cloaked in secrecy, that decisions on major student issues are decided in […]

Study Abroad programs return to East Asia

Several GW-affiliated study abroad programs are once again operating in East Asia after international health officials lifted a SARS-related travel advisory for the region. Although no programs have been canceled for the fall semester, program officials reported a significant decline in enrollment, as students wary of traveling to the area have canceled or postponed their […]

Talks fail in discrimination suit

The University failed to strike a deal with an employee that claims she was discriminated against because she is gay, paving the way for a spring trial. Kami Groom, an information systems coordinator in GW’s Information Systems and Services department, said her supervisor, ISS Assistant Director Mark Harris, repeatedly harassed her after discovering her sexual […]
