Virginia Tech soccer visiting GW: Never again?

In the first half of the GW men’s soccer team’s game against Virginia Tech on Saturday, “control” should have been the team’s nickname. Every time there was a loose ball, the Colonials owned it.

Paul Park always takes care of his family. For him, it only seemed natural to hire his “mom’s cousin’s brother-in-law” as the manager of Gallery Salad Bar and Grill in the Ivory Tower basement. Most of Park’s employees are fellow South Koreans, and many are considered family, including his younger brother, a distant relative and […]

Sen. Allen addresses CRs, stays silent on Delay

Despite a cloud of scandal surrounding the GOP and one of its most ascendant figures, Sen. George Allen (R-Va.) delivered a positive message during a speech to College Republicans on Capitol Hill Thursday. While he side-stepped questions on the recent indictment of House Majority Leader Tom Delay (R-Texas), who was forced to temporarily step down […]
