The University has officially taken the satellite dorm off the table in favor of Ryan and Mulledy halls as student housing options, administrators confirmed Monday. This decision comes on the heels of a student referendum that rejected the satellite dorm option. GUSA President Nate Tisa (SFS ’14) and Vice President Adam Ramadan (SFS ’14) told […]
I pulled into the parking lot at work—a little late, NPR humming on the radio. Stepping out of the car, I picked up a bag of clipboards out of the trunk. There were rolls of stickers, pens without caps, and posters crammed haphazardly into every corner of my car, but cleaning it out was last […]
Last month, talk show host Julie Chen revealed on The Talk that she had undergone plastic surgery on her eyes after being told by both her boss and an agent, on separate occasions, that the shape of her Asian eyes were going to hinder her career. “Let’s face it, Julie, … How relatable are you […]
This season is a melding of hard and soft, meeting at a blurred edge. Pastel colors come together with leather panels, studded sweaters meet tartan skirts. Men’s prints meet womenswear in a houndstooth dress—the bold pattern is almost a neutral. Mixed-media coats paired with delicate, single-soled heels.

Leah Brown (COL ‘16) wakes up at 9:30 a.m., finally giving in to her alarm after hitting snooze a couple times. She rolls out of bed and pads into the hallway, slipping into the empty bathroom. After getting ready and dressed, she breakfasts on a piece of fruit she swiped from Leo’s the night before.

The Academy Awards definitely has a high school lunch table element to it. It’s the biggest bling-out of the Hollywood year where the celebrity elite applauds each other’s artistic efforts and secretly hopes nobody else wins. Somebody’s bound to get snubbed—this year, however, the nominations have stirred special indignation.
In a not-so-well traveled corner of Georgetown’s campus, tucked in the maze that are the Village A residences, dance groups find time in between classes to practice. Nearly every night of the week, you can find one group or another rehearsing, perhaps for an upcoming show, or to perform at halftime at a basketball game.
I was stalking my brother on Facebook last week when I came across a photo of him in stage make-up, posted by a girl who was working on the school musical. She clearly had too much free time. I nearly clicked past it, until I saw the comment that someone had left: “gay homo fag.”
