The George Washington University Cracks Down On Greek Life

GWU has once again ignored student rights, freedom, and ethics.

Oh and they’re also profiling Greeks! Does this count as a #onlyatGW moment?

Looking for people to help run this blog!

Olaaa fellow colonials!

Sooo, I’ve become super busy with school and my job (which is funnily enough…taking photos and videos at org events lol) that I’ve kind of let this blog fall to the wayside. So I’m looking for people to help run it and keep pictures and videos of GWU-related events/moments/scenes posted on tumblr! If you like taking photos and have a camera (a regular digital is fine, a dslr would be awesome!), then you can help me run it. Anything is better than nothing! Message me and let me know!

yeux-ouverts-deactivated2014051 asked:

What is the honors program at GW like? Is there really a substantial difference between the normal GW program in professors/class size/material/pace or anything? Thanks!

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I unfortunately don’t really know anything about the honors program at GW. I do know that the class size is smaller, the material is a little more advanced, and the pace is a little faster. There are also a lot of perks like cool classes, housing, and a dedicated house (or there used to be) that housed the honors program, where kids could stop by and get information or hang out a little . That pretty much sums up all of my knowledge about the honors program…maybe someone from gw on tumblr could help you out? (use the hashtag #gwu) Sorry :/

Political junkies?

Similar questions asked were “Anyone here breathe?” and “Any other admitted students here?”

This is a photo of me from today at a protest of a religious group. They were bashing on other religions, gays, and evlution. the whole gays and evolution thing really got me going, so I decided to walk right though and scream “I LOVE SUCKING COCK!!!” I think my message got across well. And by that I mean, they didn’t like it. I also handed out condoms.
