Column: The scandal association

Why should our student leaders hold their cabinet meetings at J Street with the rest of the peasants? Why should the Student Association President’s staff have to drink water and cola? They put in so much time and effort representing students; what kind of constituents would we be if we didn’t let the SA President […]

Letters to the Editor

Have hope I’ve been through quite an emotional journey in the last few days. Wednesday morning I was furious at the American people and depressed at what we were left with.

Women’s basketball falls in exhibition opener

The GW women’s basketball team opened its exhibition season Saturday with a 69-64 loss to Everyone’s Favorite Internet Exchange, a team comprised of WNBA and former collegiate players.

The new class

Trying to match a 22-8 record, an Atlantic 10 West Title and an NCAA Tournament berth will be no easy task for the GW women’s basketball team. Especially after losing four seniors. Stars Cathy Joens and Ugo Oha are gone – and so are role players Marshiek Witherspoon and Valerie Williams. What’s left is a […]

The University implemented a new system last month to alert students of their registration holds before they sign up for spring classes. Students will be automatically informed of any holds when they log on to their student accounts on the myGW Portal, GW’s primary information Web site. Holds, prompted by unattended meetings with advisors, academic […]

Column: Believe the hype

As men’s basketball coach Karl Hobbs doled out quotes at a steady pace Friday during the annual preseason media day at the Smith Center, the questions often sounded something like this: “Wow, looking pretty good this year, huh?” That’s the feeling a lot of people, especially GW students, have about the Colonials this year. From […]

GW buildings have too many false alarms, D.C.F.D. says

GW experienced 51 false fire alarms in its buildings through Oct. 19, a figure that has drawn concern and criticism from D.C. fire department officials. “(Fifty-one) seems a little high,” said Alan Etter, a fire department spokesman. “This is what happens with false alarms. Whether or not someone is calling one in to be a […]

A-10 still tough despite new faces

When asked about the state of the Atlantic 10 this season, GW men’s basketball coach Karl Hobbs explained why the league is consistently tough. “There are teams in the league that just don’t have bad years,” he said. The coach pointed out that Richmond, St. Joseph’s, Dayton and Xavier have each averaged over 20 wins […]
