Students discuss living wills in light of Schiavo case

(U-WIRE) WASHINGTON – Terri Schiavo died last Thursday, ending a long contested personal and political battle over her right to die. The feeding tube was removed almost two weeks earlier from the 41-year-old woman, who had spent 15 years in a vegetative state. The legal battle between her husband, Michael, and her parents was put […]

Colleges confront identity theft

(U-WIRE) WASHINGTON – Applying for a loan online; buying textbooks at the campus bookstore; checking your grades on the Internet. What may seem like everyday tasks for a typical college student could also provide easy access for someone to steal your identity. Identity theft is the fastest growing crime in America, with 900,000 new victims […]

All That Jazz!

On a typical Friday afternoon most GW students breathe a sigh of relief for the week’s end of classes, papers and exams. However this is not the case for ComboNation – a group of six aspiring GW musicians who can be found in the basement of Phillips Hall deep in the midst of a musical […]

Column: CLLC: A four-letter “word”

After two years at GW I’ve dealt with just about every aspect of this University’s bureaucracy. Surpassing financial aid, the registrar, student accounts and even the president’s office, CLLC is by far the most frustrating. This poorly run branch of the GW bureaucracy sometimes is so obsessed with something that they’re blinded to the reality […]

Column: Not this time

Twenty-nine Rogoffs are listed on a piece of paper with notes about the day they died and how the Nazis killed them. This paper looks all too similar to a list made by Darfurian refugees in Chad attempting to document the murders of their family members. I fear that in 50 years their grandchildren will […]
