Column: Kerry’s illogical claim

This just in: “According to the Associated Press, Democratic presidential nominee Sen.

Sophomores pick housing

A record number of returning students opted to live at the Mount Vernon Campus for next year, leading to a smaller number of students without housing than officials originally expected. More than 100 rising sophomores chose a Mount Vernon room in Sunday’s lottery, helping ease the need to accommodate a surplus of students seeking on-campus […]

Women still look NCAA-bound

PHILADELPHIA – After failing to win the Atlantic 10 Tournament and the automatic NCAA Tournament berth that comes with it, the GW women’s basketball team will have a week to wait and ponder its fate.
