Leah Carliner: No longer saving the things left unsaid

There’s nothing like seeing your name in The Hatchet. Nothing. It’s one of the best student papers in the country, it’s read by all of your peers and it’s often sprawled across elevator floors on Sunday mornings by those drunk kids that just can’t keep their hands off of it.

Parking it somewhere new

With high-priced cover charges and trendy fashions, the nightlife on K Street makes for a specific breed of college students who put on their Thursday-night-best for an evening of drinking and dancing into the wee hours of the morning.

Get a hot body for hot weather

For guys, there is only one must-have accessory for the beaches on spring break this year: a hot body.

Nude scene causes student theater strife

Claude, a young man who has been drafted to serve in the Vietnam War, stands center stage in the GW production of “Hair” as a bright light shines upon him. The audience is frozen in his thoughts as he waffles between going to war or remaining in a hippie counterculture in New York City. Six […]

Taking a candle to religion

December is a particularly bright month and not just because everyone is giving and getting presents. Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa are all holidays that involve lights, so this year, try buying your observant friends a present that they can actually use in the spirit of their holiday – a candle.
