Staff Editorial: The demise of the Marvin Center

Four years ago, dinnertime at J Street was an event for a large portion of the GW community. Students packed into the food court, and it was difficult to even find a seat. Beginning this semester, would-be diners will not even be able to eat dinner at half of the Marvin Center’s venues thanks to […]

Former President Carter defends his controversial book

Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter received mixed reviews after visiting GW and defending the validity of his new book, “Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid,” in a March 8 lecture at Lisner Auditorium.

The Bar Belle: The Reef

The Reef 2446 18th St. N.W. Before a barrage of rain, sleet and snow pushed us back into a wintry mix last week, it was warm enough for Colonials in D.C. for Spring Break to imagine, briefly, that they were really getting bombed in the Bahamas or crunked in Cancun. It was warm enough for […]

Senate unable to vote on fee increase resolution

The Student Association Senate meeting ended unusually early Tuesday night in the Marvin Center with no debate or vote on two Senate bills. The early adjournment occurred because not enough students attended the meeting for any votes to be counted. Sophomore Sen. George Blair’s (ESIA-U) student fee increase bill was sent to the Finance Committee […]
