Super Bowl is sure bet for students

When the St. Louis Rams tied the New England Patriots late in the Super Bowl two years ago, the game appeared to be headed into overtime for the first time in NFL history. One GW senior wearing a “No Overtime” T-shirt kicked his television in disgust. But it wasn’t because he was a Patriots fan. […]

GW slams Xavier

No referee or video replay could overturn this one. Playing in front of the largest Smith Center crowd in more than a year, the GW men’s basketball team earned possibly its biggest win this season, winning by its largest margin of victory in over two years. The Colonials (11-7, 5-2 Atlantic 10) beat Xavier 81-60 […]

Rocking books off the shelves

Alex Greenwald and Jacques Brautbar of Phantom Planet had a verbal exchange Saturday that will probably resonate through the ages. “How many college kids can you fit into at Olsson’s?” “This many!” Exactly one day after the band appeared on “Late Night with David Letterman,” Phantom Planet took the stage at Olsson’s, a small book […]

Worm infects students’ e-mail

At least 50 students’ computers were infected with the MyDoom virus this week, after thousands of messages swarmed GW’s e-mail system and slowed delivery. Messages infected with the worm, which have subject lines including “hi,” “hello” and “mail delivery system,” have traveled around the world in the past few days. Several universities’ and corporations’ systems […]

WILD ART: Lounging Around

Sophomore Isaac Njako and junior Alex Green watched television in Kogan Plaza Wednesday. Members of the Theta Delta Chi fraternity braved the cold to raise money for cancer patients. The fraternity will sit in Kogan again Thursday. Redskins cheerleaders will join the men from noon to 2 p.m.

Remember the SATs?

If you’re reading this, then you may be a little too old for “The Perfect Score.” Well, that depends – do movies filled with stereotypes, awkward love scenes and impassioned speeches about “finding yourself” still do it for you? If you’re mentally stuck in high school, then “The Perfect Score” is a serviceable, if trite, […]

Tantric Talk

Undeterred by Sunday night’s snow, Tantric rolled into D.C. to open for the band 3 Doors Down on its winter tour, which consists of nine dates along the East Coast and in the South. The guys are promoting their new album As We Go which is scheduled to hit stores on Feb. 24. After their […]

Talk from the top

Last season, the San Francisco Ballet flocked to the Kennedy Center, leaving their indelible footprints on the opera house stage with a performance laden with uniform consistency. If SFB represents the best teamwork to be found on the dance scene, the American Ballet Theatre of New York is the varsity players of the form. What […]

Alec Baldwin on GW theater and the rigors of Hollywood

It’s a good thing for Alec Baldwin fans that the actor transferred from GW when he did. Otherwise, he may have been a wannabe politician surrounded by horrible actors. Baldwin, who attended GW in the late 1970s, majored in political science and even ran for Student Association president in 1979. He held a position on […]
