Dean supporters plan to stay active

When Howard Dean announced his decision to drop out of the Democratic primary last week, senior Ari Mittleman described the mood of the former Vermont governor’s on-campus supporters as “bitter.” For Mittleman and the approximately 300 members of GW’s Generation Dean group, it was a quick fall from grace for a fiery politician who only […]

Column: A weekend in Kentucky

I guess I’m one of those stereotypically wild college kids, one who engages in irrational behavior. Behavior such as waving campaign signs on the corner of West Main and Cox streets in Lexington, Ky., at 9:30 a.m. in sub-freezing temperatures on Presidents Day. Prior to this excursion, I had no connection to, and little knowledge […]

Ridge honors dept. at GW ceremony

Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge addressed the government’s efforts to prevent terrorist attacks at GW Monday morning. About 300 people filled the Jack Morton Auditorium to hear Ridge talk about the war on terror and mark the one-year anniversary of the creation of the Homeland Security Department. “What a wonderful place to commemorate this moment, […]

Column: Speaking the truth

There are students at this University, such as James Gilbreath who think the Bible is a compilation of clever sayings, an easy-reference guide for those times in life when a comforting word or deep reflection is needed to make an idea sound wholesome and traditional. Unfortunately, most readers will take their information, and thus, their […]

SA hopefuls debate issues

Student Association presidential candidates discussed technology services and student rights at a debate Monday night. Candidates told 70 attendees that they would like to use the Internet and the GWeb system to better serve the student body. Most candidates said they would like to see an online forum where students could discuss campus issues and […]

Column: A Rich tradition

Pledging Sigma Alpha Epsilon last year was the best decision I’ve made at GW. I love the idea of fraternities, and actively promote their interests. That is why it pains me to see the state of GW’s Greek life and then read an article that bashes off-campus fraternities with lies and ignorant generalizations. Let’s clear […]

JEC doles out campaign violations

Several Student Association presidential and executive vice presidential candidates received violations for campaign tactics this week. The Joint Election Committee received complaints about presidential candidates Isaiah Pickens, Lee Roupas, Glenn Dym, Ruarri Miller, Alex Rochestie and ghost candidate Tom Quigley. Executive vice presidential candidates Anthony Moniello and Ed Buckley also received a violation each. Complaints […]

Letters to the Editor

New foods Each week, GW Dining Services brings us another installment of its “Visiting Chef” series. Much to my surprise, last week’s “guest” was Executive Chef Penny Phoon’s venerable Malaysia Kopitiam – which operates another venue at J Street all week long. My personal definition of a “visiting chef” would not include any of the […]

With more wins, the stakes go up

Students could turn on their televisions next month and see the GW men’s basketball team in either the NCAA Tournament or the National Invitation Tournament. Or the Colonials, like they have for the past four postseasons, could be the ones watching from the couch. It all depends on what happens in the next few weeks, […]

DTD found guilty of hazing

Members of the Delta Tau Delta fraternity received sanctions ranging from disciplinary probation to suspension after the University learned the group was hazing students, Student Judicial Services officials said. SJS Director Tara Woolfson said Delta Tau Delta members’ charges included serving alcohol to minors and hazing. She said students who voluntarily participate in activities can […]
