MVC’s fate still unclear

Plans for the status of Mount Vernon College have yet to be determined, but will be finalized in the near future, GW Director of Public Affairs Mike Freedman said. Despite receiving financial help from GW since last year, MVC has not attained financial stability. Now the University is trying to decide the fate of the […]

GW needs a revolutionary new concept: grades for beer

Now that midterms are finished, I think it’s time all faculty, administrators and students take a load off, have a beer (if you’re over 21, otherwise a non-alcoholic beverage will do fine) and listen to what I have to say. It might just save our University from certain disaster. We’ve all gone through midterms together. […]

Letters to the Editor

Piece meal plan A GW meal plan doesn’t exist, more like a GW snack plan. Where I come from, two pieces of rice and one piece of cartilage doesn’t constitute a meal. No wonder so many people at this school smoke, anyone with a body fat count over 2 percent will starve to death on […]

What a sham!

Last May, at the Commencement ceremony, GW President Stephen Joel Trachtenberg asked the crowd, “Is this a wonderful place to hold Commencement or what?” The crowd responded with a great roar of approval.

Debate commission was no `fizzle’

The Oct. 23 GW Hatchet editorial “Debate fizzle” (p.4) is an example of the harm journalists can do when they express opinions without getting all the facts. The piece scolded the administration for being inconsiderate by scheduling the Commission on Presidential Debates Symposium during midterms, and implied that students did not show up because they […]

Cross country teams flounder at A-10 meet

After promising finishes for both the men and the women at the IC4A-ECAC Championships two weeks ago, the GW men’s and women’s cross country teams figured to make noise at the Atlantic 10 Championships in Centreville, Va. Saturday. Neither team did as well as expected, though, as the women finished fifth and the men finished […]

GWU opens season with exhibition win

Teams with no seniors and a lot of newcomers usually look nervous and disorganized during first games. The GW women’s basketball team looked like that kind of team in the first half of its exhibition game against Denamo-Moscow Sunday, but settled down in the second half to come away with a 79-60 victory at the […]
