Remembering a sister and a friend

As many of my friends say, you don’t come to college to meet your husband; you come to meet your bridesmaids. Every girl begins her freshman year of college looking for her lifelong friends or “bridesmaids.” These are the women who are willing to blow off everything to go out on a Tuesday night just […]

In stores: CD

Artist: The Sleepy Jackson Album: Lovers Genre: Rock Label: EMI Music Just when you thought you’d gore your own eyes out at the mere mention of rap-rock hybrids and wannabe garage-bands, rock music has actually begun to present a lovely new movement. No one actually has the foresight or pretense to name it, but what […]

Shootout to be held Tuesday

Last spring, two GW students stood on the University of Dayton Arena floor during the first game of the Atlantic 10 Tournament semifinals, under as much pressure as any of the basketball teams and with even more on the line. Those two students, then-seniors Andy Wilson and Kiara Burrell, were the GW finalists in the […]

D.C. restaurants serve romance

Nathan’s 3150 M St. N.W. (202) 338-2600 www.NathansLunch.com This Georgetown classic is usually ignored by the college crowd more concerned with the bar scene, but it’s perfect for a date.

Bush and Kerry: not really that different

I have a penchant for picking the losing candidate in presidential elections, but I also have one for picking a true leader who represents a clear and much-needed contrast to the status quo. This time around I devoted my time and energy to former Vermont Governor Howard Dean. Last election season I worked enthusiastically for […]

SA NOTES

SA calls for equal tuition The Senate Academic Affairs Committee voted Tuesday to consider a bill asking the University to standardize tuition costs for all majors. Students in the School of Media and Public Affairs pay an extra $1,000 per year. “Calling it a tuition price is a bad precedent because then the University can […]

Dogs don’t bark at parked cars

For years I have watched as we are slandered, and we fall back. I have watched as we are denied equal membership to the Interfraternity Council, and we fall back. And last week, I watched as Ben Block, president of the IFC, lied about “unrecognized fraternities,” and we fell back. The line is drawn here. […]
