Running To Slow Down

Running To Slow Down

By:

I wake up Saturday morning feeling anxious. My skin itches and my heart won’t stop fluttering. Sitting still hurts when my mind is racing faster than my flickering pulse. I want to take off. I want to run so far and fast away from here that nothing can touch me. I want to feel my…

Higher Edge: Letting our professors fail us

By:
02/05/2015

“The most important thing when picking classes is choosing the right professor.” This is the platitude every incoming freshman is bombarded with when they pick their classes for the first time. It’s the same advice that those freshmen will then pass on to the newest incoming class once they are older and wiser upperclassmen. The…

Higher Edge: Students pay the price of committing too soon

While most high school seniors will spend the next few months anxiously praying for the big envelope to arrive in March, some students already know which college they will be attending this fall. By deciding to apply early to their top schools, students receive their admissions decisions several months before most of their peers. For…

“Run with me in the snow tomorrow,” my friend said. I looked out the window at the blanket of browning slush covering the sidewalks and felt discouraged. I had always thought of running in the snow as wrongfully romanticized, but I desperately wanted to run outdoors again. After much internal deliberation, I agreed to join…

Running the same route squeezed between the Potomac and the parkway to the tourist filled monuments isn’t exactly escapism. It’s beautiful and enjoyable, but it doesn’t remove you from the hustle and bustle of Georgetown. If you really want a brief reprieve from all the chaos of campus, or even if you just want to…

The lower the temperature drops, the harder I find it to convince myself to get out of bed when my 8:21am alarm goes off. I don’t know how some students can get up at 9am for class when I’m barely able to crawl out of my bed for one of the things I love most…

Curtain Call: The diversity of Georgetown’s theater scene

Few come to Georgetown for the theater scene. Until recently, the university did not even have a theater major or administrative structures to support acting or set design. In spite of this, Georgetown boasts four active, student-run theater groups. With their unique quirks and history, each campus theater group occupies a niche in the theater community….

Saxa Politica: Got a problem? Here’s a town hall

By:
11/20/2014

On an almost weekly basis, the student body receives an email from Jay Gruber, Todd Olson, or Robin Morey, inviting them to take part in an upcoming event designed to “maximize engagement” with whatever issue is pertinent that week. Just about every student will casually scan the email with no real intention to act on…

Though construction work on the north side of campus is an inconvenience for Hoyas who have to travel through the area, unclaimed posters appeared last weekend reminding everyone that these areas are even harder to traverse for disabled students. “Most people might feel mildly inconvenienced, frustrated or confused by the frequent and ever-shifting campus construction,”…
