Georgetown Voice: How The Neighbors Stole Christmas

In a fit of holiday cheer, students at the Georgetown Voice put together a parody of "How The Grinch Stole Christmas" (click image at link for a PDF), but naturally in this case, the Grinch (or grinches) is represented by the neighbors who are fighting the university's campus plan:

Georgetown Voice Students Punished for Damaging University Property

The Georgetown Voice offices are being downsized after three students caused damage to the ceiling of their on-campus space.

Ordered to Close, Georgetown’s Philly P’s Finally Does

After a night of drunken debauchery in Georgetown, nothing tastes better than a slice of pizza–something's gotta soak up the alcohol. But Philly Pizza & Grill on Potomac Street NW has finally shuttered, after losing a hard-fought battle with the local Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) and the D.C.

The Hoya‘s Lame Coverage of the Heckler‘s KKK Satire

Perhaps even more interesting than the controversy over a recent Georgetown Heckler article that invoked a cross burning and the KKK in an attempt to make fun of the Hoya newspaper's own troubles on the issue of race is the coverage the Hoya gave it.
The student paper published one six-paragraph article—216 words—that did not mention [...]

The Georgetown Voice's Vox Populi blog covered last night's on-campus forum organized by students upset over a recent article in the satirical Georgetown Heckler about a KKK-style cross burning on campus that was meant to mock the Hoya newspaper and its disastrous April Fools' issue.

Georgetown Student, Too Busy to Drive Self to Work, Seeks Personal Assistant

Being a college student is very demanding. There is the whole academic thing. Like going to classes, and completing homework assignments. Then, on top of that, you're expected to feed yourself. And clean yourself, and clean your clothes, and clean your room (or not). It's all too much, really.
Which is why one Georgetown University student [...]

The Hoya: Still No Sense of Humor

Georgetown University has two major campus newspapers, The Hoya, published twice weekly, and The Voice, published weekly. As an undergraduate some years back, I spent much of my college career, to the detriment of my college career, working at the Voice.
Like any two institutions in close competition and proximity (they occupy adjacent offices in the [...]

Beaujon to Georgetown Voice: I Do Not Look Like Todd Louiso

Yes, Sam Sweeny, your article on the City Paper is pretty good. But saying I look like the "bald record store clerk from High Fidelity" is just plain baldism. Here's Todd Louiso's IMDB page—if anyone around here looks like him, it's Moyer. Me, I'm more like Dean Stockwell with a shaved head.
Compare photos below. I'm [...]
