GW could notify parents about alcohol violations under new bill

The University will have the option to notify the parents of students who violate alcohol and drug laws and policies under legislation passed by Congress last week. The provision is an amendment to the Higher Education Reauthorization Act that was passed by the U.S. Senate Sept. 29 and the House Sept. 28. The amendment, proposed […]

It’s a nice thought, but football wouldn’t work at GW

It has come to my attention that GW sports fans can’t wait for basketball season to start, which is pretty pathetic considering it’s only the first week of October. Some poor lost soul even e-mailed The GW Hatchet last week, telling us we should have a basketball preview section soon. By the way, look for […]

Registering to vote in D.C. has drawbacks

GW Votes registered 500 GW students to vote in the District in its recent drive to increase campus participation in local politics. But by giving up the right to vote in their home states, many GW students forfeited other privileges. But Adam Siple, director of the GW Votes campaign, said he believes it is more […]

Watergate journalists contrast eras of scandal

Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, the history-making journalists who uncovered the Watergate scandal in The Washington Post, engaged GW students in a question and answer session Thursday. The two famous reporters were peppered with students’ questions in Lanny Davis’ class, “Scandal, Damage Control and American Politics” in an overflowing Hillel auditorium. Students asked questions on […]

The hypocrisy of Convocation

I love hypocrisy. Especially when it comes from the GW administration. GW students were given the afternoon off from classes Tuesday so they could attend that always profound, life-altering event – Opening Convocation. Well, students didn’t get the entire afternoon off, but classes were canceled between 1:30 and 3:30 p.m. Why was it so important […]

Freshmen play through nervousness in impressive GW soccer debut

If Courtney Wright was nervous, it didn’t show. Seventeen minutes into her collegiate soccer debut, Wright scored her first goal for the GW women’s soccer team. But she wasn’t the only freshman who played well for the Colonial women in Tuesday’s 5-4 loss to the sixth-ranked University of Virginia. Midfielder Keisha Christoph, defender Angelica Caramanica […]

GW men’s basketball coach Tom Penders has added four freshman recruits to the program and is attempting to bring in a fifth player from Belarus. Penders confirmed that guard Dorien Brown, forwards Jason Smith and Andry Sola, and center Albert Roma have accepted scholarships and enrolled in classes this week. Valeri Khamenia, a 6-7, 205-pound […]

Penders replaces Jarvis as men’s coach

Tom Penders was introduced as Mike Jarvis’ successor as men’s basketball coach Thursday, promising up-tempo, exciting basketball. “I just can’t wait to coach this group of young men,” Penders said at a press conference in the Smith Center. “We’re going to have fun and we’re going to fill this arena. We have all the pieces […]

Jarvis leaves behind a strong basketball program at GW

Mike Jarvis’ GW coaching career began with a loss – a tough loss. Jarvis brought new excitement to a downtrodden men’s basketball program in 1991. The team was 1-27 just two years before he arrived and hadn’t had a winning season in seven years. Members of Jarvis’ family flew in from Boston to see his […]

Jarvis interviews for St. John’s job

GW men’s basketball coach Mike Jarvis has been a candidate for coaching positions at four other schools in the past year. But St. John’s University showed the most serious interest in him last week and is expected to offer Jarvis its vacant coaching position, according to several sources. Sources confirmed that Jarvis was interviewed by […]
