Colonials face great expectations

Expectations can be a dangerous thing. So dangerous, in fact, that GW men’s basketball coach Karl Hobbs wants no part of them. “Throw the expectations out the window,” Hobbs said after a mid-October practice. “It’s very hard to convince me we’re half as good as people say we are. We’re a long ways away.” For […]

GW pushes back spring registration

University officials on Thursday pushed back spring class registration a week in order to change meeting times for up to 200 courses and alleviate an overbooked schedule. Students were informed of the move in a mass e-mail sent out by Craig Linebaugh, associate vice president for academic planning and development. Registration for non-hours undergraduate students […]

Damaged pipe floods HOVA floors

A damaged hot water pipe flooded three Hall on Virginia Avenue floors late Friday night. Residents were without reliable water service until 3:30 p.m. Saturday. At around 10:15 p.m. Friday, a female HOVA resident kicked a third floor radiator, causing a hot water pipe to burst and damage the northwest side of the building. Water […]

Mail employee suspected of tampering

A GW Mail Services employee is suspected of opening students’ letters last month. U.S. Postal Inspection Service officials are still questioning the employee – whom they declined to identify – and have yet to charge him with mail tampering. Tracy Schario, GW’s director of Media Relations, said the employee has been suspended and is “believed […]

Values a decideing factor in election, profesors conclude

During a lighthearted but fiery discussion at the Jack Morton Auditorium Thursday night, GW professors and campaign officials agreed that values played a large role in President Bush’s election victory. Graduate School of Political Management professors Peter Fenn, Joe Rothstein and Bill Greener hosted the discussion, which also touched on advertising for both parties, the […]

University turns on air in 1957 E Street

It may be November, but for senior Dorie Ain, it feels like July. “It’s been painfully hot for the last two and a half weeks,” Ain, a resident of 1957 E St., said. “The thermostat doesn’t change the temperature and there is absolutely no ventilation.” The University has received several complaints from students who say […]

Philly star lands at GW

As a coach in the Atlantic 10, GW men’s basketball coach Karl Hobbs knows what he’s up against. The Colonials do not have a sparkling new arena or a campus full of green space to show off to recruits. But as he has proven with two strong recruiting classes in 2002 and 2003, Hobbs does […]

Taking classes and getting engaged

Most people don’t expect to meet the person they will spend the rest of their lives with at Colonial Inauguration. But senior Jody Elliott and her fianc?, senior Jeff Schrimmer, are not typical college students. The couple, together now for three years, met at freshman orientation and lived on the same Hall on Virginia Avenue […]

Editorial: Poor service

Last Thursday University officials announced the delay of the class registration process by one week. Citing concerns of over-concentration of certain time slots, administration officials felt students deserved more time to peruse a significantly changed schedule of classes before registration begins. With a revised schedule still missing, the entire situation reeks of University bureaucratic ineptitude. […]

Dorm room recipes

Some may feel that they long for a good home-cooked meal now that they are away at college. Others may be excited about the prospective freedom that now overcomes their kitchen or what may stand in for a kitchen (i.e., George Forman Grill and a bathroom sink), but whoever you are, you are hungry. Here’s […]
