Staff editorial: Thumbs Up/Thumbs Down

The Hatchet’s wrap-up of GW’s ups and downs.

Thumbs up: Basketball is back!

Friday’s Colonial Invasion marked the official start of basketball season, and we can’t believe it is that time of the year again. We look forward to the next few months of rallies, rivalries and, hopefully, victories.

Thumb Sideways: Student tickets for Obama event.Actually, not really

When GW hosts a presidential town hall on campus, it reminds us of what it means when the University proclaims that it sits in the center of it all. But University officials said students would be able to attend the event, when in actuality, students had been preselected for the audience. While Obama’s appearance on campus proved to be exciting, we are disappointed by the fact that student tickets weren’t really available.
