No Longer in a Little Room

Collectively known as the White Stripes, Jack and Meg White aren’t your typical rock stars. The Detroit-based duo is an oddity – a Delta blues fan who plays a cheap-looking oblong guitar and his “sister” (ex-wife, actually), who can’t muster anything more than the most basic drum lines. Oh, and let’s not forget that they […]

Column: In need of vocal protest

Comedian Groucho Marx once quipped, “Marriage is a wonderful institution, but who wants to live in an institution?” The answer to his question: millions of loving gay couples who are legally barred from doing so. Although the recent ruling by the Massachusetts Supreme Court is an important legal step, there needs to be a greater […]

Colonials beat West Virginia, will play Gonzaga for BB&T title on Sunday

Posted Saturday, Dec. 6, 5:40 p.m. The GW men’s basketball team let double-digit leads slip away in both Wednesday’s loss at Appalachian State University and Saturday’s match-up with West Virginia University.

To continue operating at a profit after your demand drops, you must drop the amount of labor or capital involved in […]

Bahamas trip no vacation

First GW’s two star seniors were hurt against eighth-ranked Penn State University last Friday, then the Nittany Lions added insult to injury by pummeling the Colonials, 77-51. GW (1-2) would recover to win its second game of the Junkanoo Jam, which was held on Grand Bahama Island in the Bahamas, by beating Arizona State University […]

It is open to members of the Greek-letter community. Participation is $12 per person […]
