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. The men fell short of their original team goal to be in the top five, although senior Darrell Andruski secured a coveted spot on the 2003 men’s all-conference team. Last year, the women placed […]

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 […]

(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.

The Colonials won their final game against La Salle on Sunday, but a 2-1 defeat at Fordham Friday essentially knocked them out of playoff contention. The Colonials […]

Column: My Halloween costume was you

When I sat down in high school to choose a college, I was sure to take into account that I really just do not like myself very much. Sure, choosing the perfect place to attend college may not be the perfect solution to this self-image problem of mine, but after reviewing all of the other […]

Water polo earns bid to Easterns

The GW men’s water polo team finished in fourth place this weekend at the Southern Division Championships and for the first time in four years the Colonials qualified for the Eastern Conference Championships, where they will get a chance to play for a spot in the NCAA Final Four. Playing in Lewisburg, Pa., GW competed […]

Volleyball loses but maintains standing

The GW volleyball team split its weekend games, crushing Atlantic 10 bottom-dweller Fordham 3-0 Saturday after being swept by Rhode Island Friday. The Colonials’ loss to Rhode Island continued the team’s recent struggles against the conference’s upper-echelon teams, as GW has now lost at least once to each of the other three schools with .500-plus […]

Faculty vote against summer session, 4×4

The Faculty Senate unanimously passed a resolution Friday opposing the implementation of a mandatory summer session and new credit system. The Senate found that proposed changes currently under consideration are not in the best academic interests of the University. “It’s really rare to have the faculty so unified about anything,” said William Griffith, chair of […]
