Stories from the January 29, 1998 issue of the GW Hatchet.

Opportunity lost

Tuesday night’s State of the Union address by President Clinton was a long and rambling oratory about dozens of new policy aims, goals and ideas. The speech lurched from brief mentions on everything from education and Iraq, to the economy and sending John Glenn back to space. In the end, so much was said that […]

Spring break trip highlights service

College students across the nation will flock to the beach for spring break, but some GW students and faculty will head to the shore for a different reason – to perform community service in coastal South Carolina. Sixteen students and two faculty members will spend spring break on South Carolina’s Sea Islands as part of […]

Letters to the Editor

Illogical logic I am appalled by the take presented of people with special needs in the “No ticket to ride” letter to the editor in The GW Hatchet Jan. 20 (p.4). In his letter, the writer readily exposed his ignorance by stating, “If Casey Martin really has what it takes to play professional golf, he […]

Time to finally end bilingual education

(U-WIRE) CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – It is time to end bilingual education in America. This is a system that originally was intended to be temporary until students gained fluency in English, but it has evolved into a much larger and more dangerous program. Students are segregated and taught almost entirely in a language other than English, […]

GW women defeat George Mason

Exhausted from a two-game road trip, the GW women’s basketball team made up for poor shooting with strong defensive play to escape with a 55-39 victory against George Mason University Monday. Continuing their unusual sub-par play at home, the Colonial women (12-6, 6-2 Atlantic 10) shot a dismal 33 percent for the game and hit […]

Gymnastics team defeats three squads in own meet

Young but talented, the GW gymnastics team is setting its hopes on capturing the Atlantic 10 Championship that eluded it a year ago. The Colonial women, who placed second at last year’s A-10 Championship, took their first step toward their goal by placing first in the GW Gymnastics Invitational at the Smith Center Sunday. After […]

Swimming teams find top form

In a performance Coach Marc Hagen said bodes well for the upcoming Atlantic 10 Championship, both the GW men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams routed James Madison University at the Smith Center Saturday. “In terms of combined men’s and women’s, it was probably the best effort I’ve seen since I’ve been here,” Hagen said. […]

Broncos win the Super Bowl, what’s next?

Hell must be freezing over. Not only did an AFC team win the Super Bowl Sunday, but it was the Denver Broncos. The Denver Broncos, the team that always chokes, finally won the big game. You had to smile, though, watching John Elway celebrate like a kid in a candy store when he finally was […]
