Greeks raise charity funds

Kappa Sigma and Phi Sigma Sigma captured the top fraternity and sorority titles at this year’s Greek Week, an annual competition and charity fundraiser for Greek-letter organizations.

I Feel Pretty, Oh So Pretty…

I don’t normally do this sort of thing. I have to admit, though; I’ve always found the idea of racing in women’s clothing a little compelling. I can’t explain it, but ever since I found out about it freshman year, I’ve been strangely drawn toward the High Heel Race, held on Q Street in Dupont […]

Battle of the Sexes

Question: I can’t hook up with someone unless I’ve been drinking that evening. I’m not always drunk – sometimes just tipsy – but I need alcohol, otherwise I’m too nervous and shy.

Runners place sixth at A-10s

The GW men’s and women’s cross country teams both placed sixth overall at the Atlantic 10 Championships in Philadelphia last weekend.

Editorial: Government-controlled tuition

Rep. Howard McKeon (R-Calif.) introduced a bill last month that aims to penalize colleges and universities that raise tuition more than twice the rate of inflation over a three-year period. While the bill is well-intentioned, it is absurd to give the federal government such imposing control over private universities. GW raised its tuition 10.2 percent […]

Getting it Raw at Kaz

Zagat’s and The Washingtonian can’t be wrong – or can they? Rated at the top of Washington restaurants by both Zagat and the Washingtonian, Kaz Sushi is known for its authentic Japanese “freestyle” food. The tag “freestyle” comes from giving the authentic Japanese dishes a slight Western touch. But are the taste buds of the […]

Column: Zealous rhetoric has no place in the military

(U-WIRE) AMES, Iowa – We now have a glimpse into the kind of attitude that may be just under the surface of some of the people who run the current administration. Last week it was revealed Lt. Gen. William G. Boykin made frighteningly xenophobic and extremist comments over the past year and a half to […]
