Support the New and Improved Women’s March

Last January, our editorial board wrote that there were several fundamental problems with the Women’s March. Even though we stood by the movement’s founding principles, we advocated sitting out the march. Last year’s Women’s March was regarded by many as evidence the grassroots uprising grew out of anger at President Trump’s election and was unsustainable....

Georgetown Should Commit to Ethical Data Use

Many colleges and universities have opted to begin using technologies that track the behavior of prospective and enrolled students online and on campus, respectively. This editorial board believes Georgetown should preemptively commit to the ethical use of data collection technology, both with respect to admissions and student life. As The Washington Post reported in 2019,...

Upon The New Decade

The clock struck midnight on January 1, 2020. A brand new decade, a brand new act.  Maybe I watch too many movies, but with a new decade on the horizon I’ve been looking back on my life as different acts, and reflecting on each one has given me a new understanding of myself in the...

“Kick over the wall ’cause government’s to fall. How can you refuse it? Let fury have the hour, anger can be power. Do you know that you can use it?”  Would you believe me if I told you one of the biggest bands in the world purposefully trashed venues on tour and snuck fans in…

The international community must know the historical context behind the indignation of the Bolivians who poured into the streets demanding that Evo Morales and his followers respect democracy and the rule of law after electoral fraud took place on October 20, 2019.

Since their introduction to the D.C. landscape in September 2017, electric scooters, or e-scooters, have become as ubiquitous as rats in the Georgetown neighborhood. It is not uncommon to trip over one on an unsuspecting stroll down to CVS or to feel one at your heels in a crowded Red Square on a Farmer’s Market…

When I left Turkey, I left behind many things: my loved ones, my childhood, the law school I was always dreaming about. Right before I arrived in America, I was studying for my midterms, but I could not take any of them. I left my class notes for my classmates. I left the theater ticket…
