Claire Goldberg Why We Need to #TrustWomen and #DeleteUber

Last weekend, former Uber engineer Susan Fowler posted a blog about her experience with the company’s use of human resources (HR) and managerial tactics to cover up blatant sexual harassment, tactics which are sexist and disgusting. While the CEO of Uber has called for an investigation into this harassment, which Fowler said was not limited...

Editorial Board Vote Mack/Andino for GUSA Executive

As the GUSA executive election approaches, the Georgetown community is once again reminded of the student organization that ostensibly serves as the voice of the students to the administration. GUSA campaigns are typically spaces reserved for posturing on the parts of candidates as they appeal to various student groups by promising to bring change and...

Marissa Ilnitzki Proactive Prevention Can Save the Green Ash From Invasive Beetles

On the well traversed walk from ICC to the Front Gates, it’s hard to miss perhaps the most famous, distinctive, photographed, and climbed of Georgetown’s trees: “The King” Green Ash. Even the most reclusive students can recall a time when the low limbs of this giant enticed them. A time when the grandeur of this...

Carrying On: Untangling the Art From the Artist

Carrying On: Untangling the Art From the Artist

I have always been in love with movies. Beautiful, gritty, or suspenseful, it doesn’t matter. When done right, a film has the power to place me in a different world, a world more dazzling, more terrifying, or more outlandish than the one in which I reside. A soaring piece of music, a particularly cutting dialogue…

Counter-Protesting the March for Life

Counter-Protesting the March for Life

I’m bad at activism. I acknowledge it. I read articles but don’t share them. I hear about, for example, Donald Trump’s executive order on the Dakota Access Pipeline and skim friends’ “Organize—tonight!” posts, and I scroll past, ashamed, thinking of my bag of potatoes and head of broccoli and frying pan waiting for me to…

On Feb. 2,…

Dividing Lines: Reflections on the Inherent Violence of Borders

A powerful scene (and there are many) in Alfonso Cuarón’s Children of Men goes something like this. In 2027, a xenophobic and nationalist Britain regularly raids entire housing complexes in London, rounding up asylum seekers in cages. The police spot a car belonging to a resistance group. They see a dead woman sitting shotgun, blood…

The Age of Anti-Communication

The Age of Anti-Communication

When my mom was applying for new jobs last year, she found out it is no longer customary to reply to emails. Out of the dozens of jobs for which she applied, only a couple actually responded to her with an answer, whether that was yes or no. She put work into writing cover letters,…

And Now for Something Different: How Many Students Are From New Jersey?

Georgetown says it is committed to the geographic diversity of its undergraduate student body. Anecdotal experience has supported this; my classmates hail from parts of the country and the world I had never been exposed to before, undeniably enhancing my experience as a student. But just how successfully does Georgetown maintain this commitment? We certainly…
