Relationships formed at Georgetown that mirror that of Rudy and Fortune from the movie "Rudy" can be the most valuable.

The Search For Rudy’s Fortune

It can be easy to forget that part of what makes Georgetown our home for most of the year is the people who work there. Relationships formed with staff members are unlike those formed with faculty, friends or classmates. They are not better or worse, they just add a different[Read More…]

LLOYD: Show Love Through Action

Last weekend, I had the pleasure of being part of the Georgetown delegation to the inaugural “IgnatianQ” Conference at Fordham University.

CHENTSOVA DUTTON: A Close Consideration Of Cultural Intricacies

CHENTSOVA DUTTON: A Close Consideration Of Cultural Intricacies

Pick a word — any word. Read it aloud 30 times. Many of you will notice that the word gradually loses meaning and starts to look strange. This phenomenon, known as semantic satiation, temporarily disrupts our ability to process familiar words, such as “bicycle” or “happiness,” and forces us to[Read More…]

The ‘V’ Word

The ‘V’ Word

College students have sex. Older generations shake their finger at hookup culture while students themselves grapple to make sense of it all.

In It for the Long Haul

In It for the Long Haul

Countless texts, phone calls and Skype sessions. A four-hour ride on Megabus — longer when there’s traffic. For many couples in long-distance relationships, these are trademarks for staying connected during college, trying to bridge the hours and miles apart. While some decry the prevalence of the “hook-up culture” on college[Read More…]

Tinder Can’t Spark Real Connection

Tinder Can’t Spark Real Connection

As a 25-year-old straight male, I’ve used my fair share of technology. I made it to Chimney Rock on the original Oregon Trail, I’ve played Slappers Only on Goldeneye, downloaded quite a bit of music off Napster and sent a few emails during my brief quarter-century on this planet. As[Read More…]

Disabling Stereotypes

The summer before his junior year of high school, Evan Monod (COL ’15) had his first serious girlfriend. Monod has cerebral palsy which affects his balance, so he uses crutches when walking. “Early into it, she just asked me, ‘So, does everything work?’ I’m like, yeah!

Jackson: The Dangers of the ‘University Catalyst’ and Fast Track Relationships

Now that Valentine’s Day is over and the dust of romance has settled, it’s time to look around. The person whom you only saw as a friend just took you out, and now you’ve placed them in a new category all together. Everyone assumes they know how a normal relationship[Read More…]

What’s Love Got to Do With It?: Four Indie-Rock Power Couples

Inter-band relationships don’t always work out so well, unless you’re Johnny Cash and June Carter and just charm the pants off every crowd you grace with your honky-tonk presence. Things didn’t go quite as well for Ike and Tina Turner, nor for Blondie founders Debbie Harry and Chris Stein. Meg[Read More…]

Chivalry and The Lost Art of Relationships

It is not revolutionary to suggest that most relationships of both the congenial and amorous nature fail. One-time acquaintances from New Student Orientation or the first weeks of school fade away. Study buddies from that difficult economics or calculus class drift apart after final exams are turned in. Promising couples[Read More…]
