Column: Presenting the Irony Committee

For the past few years the Student Association has been a bacteria that students choose to watch fester. Doing nothing to excise this bacterium, students have allowed it to grow into the boil on the butt of this campus that it is today. And the growing of this boil, under Kris Hart’s presidency, certainly shows […]

GW In Brief

Washington eatery mocks GW professor, “fat suits” An eating establishment in Washington state recently began requiring customers to sign a liability waiver before eating a new dessert, “the Bulge,” mocking proponents of obesity lawsuits. The waiver is a semi-serious effort by the owners of Seattle’s 5 Spot Diner to protect their business from any sort […]

Column: GW above the ideological fray

During my first three weeks at GW I have encountered many conservative upperclassmen who offered me their warnings of a liberal bias in the classroom. As both a steadfast conservative and an inexperienced student, I have no reason to doubt such conclusions. On the contrary, I hold these upperclassmen with the utmost esteem and veracity. […]

Students party, sleep during four-day weekend

Foggy Bottom emerged relatively unscathed from a storm that left thousands without power as it tore through the East Coast Thursday night, giving students an opportunity to enjoy a four-day weekend. During the days off music blasted from rooms in Thurston Hall and other residence halls while students scoured the floors, still in their pajamas […]

The Panhellenic Association agreed, not voted, last year to refrain from using Townhouse Row for publicity. Sororities have always spent money on recruitment, but increased […]

GW researcher links gene to binge drinking

It’s Saturday night and seven female students sit around the kitchen table in their third floor New Hall room. Equipped with a blender, a handle of Jose Cuervo and a bag of limes, they pound tequila shots while sipping frozen margaritas. Six drinks later, they’re ready to go out. GW alumnus and research fellow Aryeh […]

D.C. In Brief

Georgetown restaurant catches fire A fire at the Alamo Grill, a popular Georgetown restaurant, sent patrons, including 20 GW students, rushing to the exits Friday night. No injuries were reported, but the wall behind the bar was charred. At 11 p.m., an electrical device attached to the wall of the restaurant’s first floor bar caught […]

Businesses report Colonial Cash delays

The University is taking steps to speed up GWorld transaction time at area businesses that accept Colonial Cash. The move comes in response to recent complaints from business managers about delays in customer traffic caused by slower processing time this semester. Officials attribute slower service to an increase in the number of people using GWorld […]

Zipcar provides on-campus rentals

Driving around the District will be a bit easier for students now that a car rental company has stationed two of its vehicles on campus and plans to place a third at GW in a few weeks. The company, Zipcar, charges students 21 years and older an hourly rate to rent a car. The rate […]
