An unknown birthday

By:
01/18/2001

Monday was my grandfather’s birthday. I never met him; he passed away before I was born. I hear bits and pieces about him from my dad and grandma, but when I think about it, I don’t really know much about him at all. I suppose I’m lucky to still have my other three grandparents, but…

Earthquake traps students in El Salvador

By:
01/18/2001

Six Georgetown students on a mission retreat in El Salvador were forced to evacuate the country by bus due to an earthquake which devestated El Salvador and surrouding areas on Jan. 13. None of the students was injured. The earthquake measured between 7.1 and 7.9 on the Richter scale and lasted 46 seconds. It reached…

Watch Seton Fall

By:
01/18/2001

The men’s basketball team continued its undefeated streak to “open” the season with a convincing road win over No. 19 Seton Hall Monday night, 99-91. Junior point guard Kevin Braswell led all scorers with 26 points, breaking out of a self-imposed, season-long scoring slump. Braswell’s ability to come up with a big scoring night exactly…

Eye don’t need any help

By:
01/18/2001

When brushing your teeth alongside a housemate or hallmate, do you not stop brushing until the other person does? If you’re not one of those people, the person sharing the sink with you probably is. There’s a 50/50 split between people who brush their teeth until they are “done” and people who know that “done”…

Academic calendar 2001-2 finalized

By:
01/18/2001

University Provost Dorothy M. Brown announced on Dec. 12 the finalization of the 2000-01 academic calendar. The new calendar remains largely similar to the current calendar with the exception of an extended Senior Week and an earlier beginning of second semester. Many changes proposed by Brown were not implemented, such as the consolidation of Spring…

GU Welcomes VT to Big East

By:
01/18/2001

A sign in the stands may have said it all: “Welcome to the Big Time, Virginia Tech. This is Big East Basketball!” For the past several season that sign at a Georgetown game probably would not have intimidated anyone. But with the Hoyas entering the game 14-0 and playing the best team basketball in a…

Pop confession time

By:
01/18/2001

I have a confession to make: I love pop music. For those of you who don’t know me, this may not be such a surprise. But for everyone else, this is borderline shocking, as my extreme distaste for all things MTV has normally been readily apparent. Somehow though, over the past year, my life has…

Flood slows internet connections

By:
01/18/2001

A water pipe broke Jan. 5 and flooded the Ryan Administration Building damaged networking equipment and resulted in slower network connections. The connections will return to their original speed and capacity by Feb. 1, according to a University Information Services official. At approximately 2 a.m., nearly two feet of water flooded the area which houses…

A ‘D’-licious matchup

By:
01/18/2001

Alright, I admit it. It’s a little sad, really. In fact, some people (read: psychologists) might think it?s a bit odd. I’ve been asked in probably a hundred assignments to remember all the way back, and I don?t mean to the days when NASCAR mattered not, the NHL was an orgy of offense, and Howie…
