Staff editorial: Alumni: Give more to Gelman Library

The Hatchet’s Editorial Board calls on GW alumni to direct more donations to Gelman Library so students can see improvements.

Dear GW alumni,

Gelman Library needs your help. GW students are entering their fifth week of the semester and already the flaws of Gelman Library are growing increasingly apparent. If you remember your time at GW, you too may have encountered the overcrowded study areas, the insufficient resources and the overall drab appearance that is not ideal for a study space. Midterm exam season is swiftly approaching, and as more students seek an inviting space conducive to reading or writing papers, we are reminded of just how integral the function of the campus library is to a university. Yet as it stands, Gelman remains largely underfunded and still cannot make improvements that would benefit all students at GW.
