Macs to the max

“Are you a Mac person or a PC person?” For more than 20 years, this question has become as common – and to some people, every bit as important – as, “Are you married or single?” “Would you like white or wheat?” “Scrambled or sunny-side-up?” Apple was founded by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak in […]

Men’s Squash: Unwelcome in their own home

The GW men’s squash team has improved dramatically since it became a varsity program last season, rising in the College Squash Rankings to No. 21. But players say they still feel slighted.

Riders commuting between destinations in D.C. usually pay the […]

The Help Line

I made a new friend in one of my classes and she seemed really cool at the time, but she continually talks about herself. We’ve hung out a few times, but she’s never once asked about me. It feels weird to “self-promote” what I’ve been up to, but I’m tired of only listening. Still, I’m […]

Political fever sweeps GW

The spirit of political activism that had begun to emerge at GW during the Civil Rights Movement in the 1950s reached its peak in the late 1960s and early 1970s when the University earned the nickname the “Holiday Inn of the Revolution.” Located just blocks from the White House, it was impossible for GW to […]
