Most MVC residents chose to live there

For the first time in the five-year history of the Mount Vernon Campus, every freshman living there listed the locale as a housing preference, and more non-freshmen are living there than ever before. “Every freshman on our campus right now selected Mount Vernon as a first or second choice, or were placed on Mount Vernon […]

CMJ Music Marathon 2005: End of an era

NEW YORK – Walking through the doorway of this legendary venue, one’s eye is immediately drawn upward, above eye level, where the stickers begin. Thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of stickers – slapped, neatly affixed, thrown,and otherwise attached – adorn the walls of this rock’n’roll shrine. Before pushing aside a dingy curtain to enter […]

Emily Axford: Fumigating freshmen

Package Services is grossly inefficient. The line serpentines out of the building and onto the street, and as the line grows, my patience shrinks. But I don’t want to complain. I want to finger the problem, then propose a solution. The problem is freshmen. They’re everywhere. I’m stepping on them, swatting them, picking them out […]

You will graduate on the Ellipse with a picturesque view of the White House and Washington Monument, they said. Not […]

The University has overcharged some students for dropped classes due to deficiencies in its registration and accounting software, student accounts officials said Wednesday. When a student drops a course and adds one with the same number of credits, students are supposed to receive no additional charge. Banner software malfunctioned and did not recognize this stipulation, […]

The Bar Belle: The Pour House

The Pour House 319 Pennsylvania Ave. S.E. To scope out this bar, I hopped on the Metro and headed to Capitol South. Now, don’t let the Southeast address scare you; the only frightening thing you’ll see on your walk from the Metro to the bars is the Library of Congress reminding you of the books […]


The writer of “Katrina’s concocted race card” (September 15, page 4) is Tyler Hahn, not Taylor.

Coggins’ avoids closure

Thanks to a preliminary ruling made by the D.C. District Court this month, Coggins’ Sandwich Manufactory, the popular eatery located in the Ivory Tower residence hall, can keep its doors open – at least for now.
