Team likely to make NCAAs

The GW golf team took a significant step toward making the NCAA Tournament for the first time in more than 40 years with a second-place finish this past weekend in the Rutherford Intercollegiate at State College, Pa. Coach Scott Allen said he thinks the win should guarantee the Colonials entrance into the NCAA Tournament. “Its […]

McKeown hires former Dayton assistant coach

GW women’s head basketball coach Joe McKeown announced last week the hiring of Ali Jaques as assistant coach to replace Lisa Cermignano, who took an equal position at Vanderbilt three weeks ago. “She’s a terrific coach,” McKeown said Friday in a phone interview about Jaques. “She brings a lot of experience and energy to the […]

I went to New York City last weekend, and now I am broke. I am so broke. I have less than $100 left in my checking account, and even less on my GWorld. Going to New York City for a weekend is like gambling in a casino. You have a lot of fun while you’re […]

Michael Barnett: All’s not lost at GW’s computer labs

The Gelman Library basement’s computer lab is more or less silent, save for the relentless hum of its Dells and the back-and-forth chatter among the building’s relentless socialites. But every so often, its tranquility is pierced by someone who’s freaking out because he didn’t realize that files cannot be permanently saved to a library computer. […]

Kevan Duve: 4×4: Radical or conservative

A Faculty Senate four-by-four task force report recently labeled the new curriculum proposal “a solution looking for a problem.” Funny, since as a student, the problem has been obvious to me since I first cracked open the GW Bulletin. Four-by-four is a solution to the problem of curricular incoherence and excess. The real reason four-by-four […]

GW inches closer toward Potomac boathouses

GW expects to get plans for the construction of its own boathouse along the Potomac River underway as soon as Georgetown University’s boathouse plans are cleared through the National Park Service. But that may not happen anytime soon. GW acquired two townhouses on the Georgetown waterfront between 35th and 36th streets in 2003 and plans […]

GW to post signs asking smokers to back off from buildings

GW officials announced Friday afternoon that they will put up signs outside of University buildings directing people not to smoke near the entrances, conceding to demands in a petition signed by more than 500 students and faculty members that were originally rejected earlier this month. The University’s decision comes two weeks after GW law professor […]
