Business in the front, party in the back

Most college students are wary of the line that separates work and play. However, some GW entrepreneurs traverse it purposefully, just like they bypass the Thursday night waiting line at Lulu’s. For these students, blasting hip-hop, mini-skirts and frozen margaritas are just another day at work. Senior Eric Lund and junior Sam Slater have been […]

Medical school introduces masters nursing degree

The GW Medical School began offering three programs for master’s in nursing this year to help remedy a nationwide shortage of nurses. “Nursing is not new to the University,” said Jean Johnson, senior associate dean for health sciences programs. “Offering the degree is new.” Leadership and management, clinical research administration and end-of-life care are the […]

Class takes to the trails

It’s a Friday morning – 75 degrees and sunny. It’s the kind of day any college student hates spending inside a lecture hall, half-listening to a lesson they’ll forget as soon as they walk outside the door to start their weekend.

The Colonials backed up Lee’s statement by beating Jacksonville 3-1 Friday night and defeating the University of Akron and the State […]

Book review: “The Love Wife”

In life, few stories are told the way they are in novels. There isn’t time while chatting over coffee to neatly lay out characters or slowly build up to a climax. Real life stories are fragmented. They are told between bites of a bagel and interrupted by cell phone rings. We go back and forth, […]

An Olympian’s double life

Sophomore Brett Heyl never lived in Thurston or the Hall on Virginia Avenue. He rarely dines in J Street and does not frequent night spots near campus. Around here, one might say he has not had the typical “GW experience.” Then again, Heyl isn’t a typical student. He is a world class K-1 kayaker, a […]

Assault weapon ban expires

(U-WIRE) WASHINGTON – Congress allowed a 10-year ban on deadly firearms to expire on Monday, Sept. 13, when they did not ask President Bush to renew the program. The expiration of the 1994 assault weapon ban allows the purchase of 19 types of previously outlawed military-style weapons, including Uzis and AK-47s. The ban, which was […]
