Word on the Street

With the Board of Trustees meeting being held this week, we asked students what they thought were the most pressing issues at GW. Here is what they had to say…

“Mainly the advising process for incoming freshmen needs to be looked at, the school needs to do a better job of making sure they are fulfilling prerequisites.”

-Ryan Brennan, freshman, CCAS undecided

“I think spirit is something to be looked at. I’m not sure how they would necessarily do it, but things like last year’s Buff Out game go a long way toward encouraging community, something GW needs more of.”

-Matt Wilson, sophomore, middle eastern studies

“I’m at every game and it is really embarrassing for GW, the band is bigger than the student section. Promoting sports at GW needs to be a priority.”

-Chris Pollack, sophomore, CCAS undecided

“I really don’t like the way Student Health Services is run, I think they do a poor job at GW with health issues. I purchased a program with the University and after my experiences I would never do it again.”

-Nora Campbell, junior, sociology

“I didn’t even know there was a Board of Trustees.”

-Allie Nichols, senior, international affairs
