Advising workshops need focus

The lack of uniformity among the Columbian School’s freshman advising workshops surfaced among the concerns students voiced at a recent Student Association town hall meeting. “I get constituents all the time that tell me weird stories about freshmen advising workshops and I’d like to do what I can to help change this,” said SA undergraduate […]

Letters to the Editor

Know what you’re saying When I opened the Nov. 6 issue of The GW Hatchet and read the “Network Down” editorial (p.4), I was really surprised. The first line is a quote from GW Vice President and Treasurer Louis Katz describing why GW does not have sufficient funding to match its technological goals. The quote […]

GW hosts Clinton, Reno

President Clinton led a panel discussion in the Marvin Center Theater Monday as part of the White House Conference on Hate Crimes, stressing the importance of education in tackling the national problem of hate crime.

A conversation with God the Father and Her son Chuck

Recently I have been persecuted in the media. To quell my naysayers, I have chosen to broach a serious topic. This is a first for me, and I apologize to my regular readers who look forward to my frivolity for inspiration. But today I decided to impart true wisdom and since I don’t have any […]

WNBA in D.C.

The WNBA is coming to Washington. The D.C. area will be one of two expansion cities for the women’s league and hopefully will benefit from the same huge amount of public support and interest that has greeted other cities’ franchises. Similarly, the new team will offer inspiration to area youth. Washington-area fans helped bring the […]

The forgotten Armenian genocide

I was pleased to read a letter to the editor in The GW Hatchet’s Nov. 6 issue that identified Turkey as a major violator of human rights (“China not alone, p.4). Although the letter was thorough in outlining Turkey’s major offenses, I would like to elaborate more on the forgotten 1914-18 genocide of more than […]

The au pair ruling

The recent ruling in the au pair trial has sparked discussion about the balance of power in the courtroom. Questions have been raised as to who is the dominant party in the never-ending search for justice – the judge or the jury. While the former is the interpreter of the law, the latter is a […]

Colonials sprint to 53-point exhibition rout

College basketball teams rarely win by 53 points, or get two walk-ons in the scoring column, yet the GW men’s basketball team did both in its 97-44 exhibition rout of the Around the World Basketball team Monday. It was a night of rare accomplishments for the Colonials that left fans smiling in the Smith Center. […]
