Staff Editorial: Corson for EVP

Over the years, the traditional role of the Execuitve Vice President as the president of the Student Association Senate has diminished. What the position needs is a distinguished senator, capable of making the Senate more effective. The best person to do this is Sen. Asher Corson (U-CCAS). In the last year, Corson has been one […]

Florida Atlantic sweeps GW

The Colonials were swept by No. 16 Florida Atlantic University in a three-game series in Boca Raton, Fla., last weekend. In their first three games of the regular season, the Colonials fell to the Owls 7-1 Friday, 29-1 Saturday and 7-5 Sunday. The second game of the series was particularly tough to swallow for GW. […]

D.C. examines dorm proposal

Column: Support the increase

Friday’s Martha’s Marathon raised about $15,000 less this year for need-based housing scholarships than last year. Martha’s Marathon is the University’s annual auction of the top five housing picks. Residence Hall President Matt Frisbee said there was a decrease in bids because of student uncertainty in housing availability. Last year, housing officials pushed back selection […]

Men move into tie for first

The GW men’s basketball team did what Atlantic 10 West rival Dayton could not do Saturday: win on the road. In Pittsburgh, the Colonials defeated Duquesne 86-63 a few hours after Xavier held on for a 67-60 victory over Dayton in Cincinnati. As a result, the Colonials (16-8, 10-3 A-10) are now tied with the […]

GW looks to extend Health and Wellness Center hours

GW will continue to push for extended Health and Wellness Center hours after city officials postponed a decision Thursday whether to allow the facility to stay open later. D.C.
