Student Accounts inconsistency A few days ago I noticed that I still owed the University tuition. I logged onto GWeb to investigate and discovered a charge for more than $500 for dropping a class. I had dropped a class, but it was replaced immediately after I dropped the course. I called Student Accounts to find […]

Quick View: CFs by the numbers

Students this year are learning to adapt to the impact of the increased numbers of community facilitators living in upperclassman residence halls. While the costs imposed on privacy, freedom and personal responsibility cannot be measured, the baseline dollar impact of the CF increase is quantifiable. 111 community facilitators, including 44 additional CFs this year, with […]

Facebook’s hot lists

Not all of the students in these groups are really models, but at least someone thinks they should be. The student networking database is home to several groups claiming to list GW’s most attractive students. The groups include “The 25 Hottest Girls at GW,” “The 25 Hottest Guys at GW,” “The 25 Hottest Guys […]

Biggest eaters in the GWorld

Spending a few dollars to rent a movie is the normal solution to Saturday night boredom. For a few sophomore males, however, their solution was spending nearly $400 on food. Not just any food, of course- they ate cuisine paid for entirely with Colonial Cash. In a 24-hour marathon of GWorld spending, Seth Fink, Nick […]

What’s the deal with… walls in the School Without Walls?

Admit it-you’ve walked past the School Without Walls Senior High School on campus and been confused. With an obvious structural irony in the D.C. Public School’s name, it’s normal to be stumped. The old, red brick building on G Street-which from the looks of it might be without air conditioning, maybe without reliable electricity, but […]

Models strike a student pose

At first, sophomore Thomas Cornelis was embarrassed when people recognized him by his photo in The Hatchet. And there were more than a few people who noticed. That’s because Cornelis was a regular in the newspaper last semester. He appeared frequently as the spring line model in advertisements for a trendy Georgetown clothing store, Up […]

Men’s soccer ties in double overtime at MVC

The grey clouds that rolled over the Mount Vernon Athletic Complex Saturday afternoon accurately represented the dismal tone of the men’s soccer match against Rider University of New Jersey. After a heartbreaking loss to Towson on Sept. 21, the Colonials were determined to get back on track with a victory over the winless Broncs. GW […]

Escapes: Wet on the river

D.C. might not be an outdoorsman’s paradise, but this big city has more to offer than concrete jungles and asphalt gardens. The nation’s capital is actually an extremely outdoor-friendly city, with miles of trails, parks and waterways. So, interested in crossing a stream rather than 23rd Street? Or want to ditch the cab for a […]

Varsity Roundup

Women’s Basketball The GW women’s basketball team released its Atlantic 10 schedule and will open up its conference play Jan. 6 at the Smith Center against Dayton. On Jan. 11, Temple will return to Washington in a rematch of last year’s A-10 final, while St. Louis will pay its first visit to Foggy Bottom Feb. […]

It ain’t long island: From 90210

Forget the first 10 people you met at GW – not everyone is from Long Island. Or New Jersey, for that matter. Or even Pennsylvania. Though many times you may hear students asking one another “Nassau or Suffolk County?” GW really does attract students from interesting locales all over the country and the globe. Meet […]
