Jarofurine’s bald head center of controversy at GW

GW men’s basketball coach Ike Jarofurine has turned down head coaching offers from more than 200 Division I schools in order to pursue another job, president of the Hair Club for Men. “I think my smooth, shiny dome is the kind of look the company wants to push,” Jarofurine said while carefully polishing his head […]

Minority freefall

Results of the first year of affirmative action being excluded as an admissions consideration to schools in the University of California system are in. At the Berkeley campus, admission offers for next fall’s freshman class to black and Hispanic students have plummeted. Out of 8,000 students offered admission, 191 were black, down from 562 last […]

Hollywood focuseson SEX, not love

Everybody always wants to know who is in love with who in Hollywood. Let’s face it, there’s no such thing as love in Hollywood. It’s pure sex. So let’s talk about who is fucking who. At the premier for the re-release of Grease, Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta couldn’t keep their hands off each other. […]

Screw the Ellipse!!!

We were wrong. Plain and simple. For months we railed against the University’s proposal to move Commencement from the Ellipse to the MCI Center. They listened and decided to keep it where it was. But now we realize we made a mistake. Commencement should be held at the MCI Center. It is the best location […]

Elliott dean welcomes student input

As dean of the Elliott School of International Affairs, I was most interested in the article about our undergraduate programs that appeared in your edition Thursday, March 26 (The GW Hatchet, “ESIA urged to extend curriculum,” p.1).

Grease returns to theaters for 20th anniversary

Mickey and Minnie. Romeo and Juliet. Lucy and Desi. Bonnie and Clyde. Few other couples are known by both grandparents and grandchildren. But Sandy (Olivia Newton-John) and Danny (John Travolta) span the generation gap. Young and old love the story of Rydell High Class of 1978. When it debuted in 1978, Grease (Paramount Pictures) grossed […]

Important event happens at GW

Something happened on campus today, according to people who were there. “Something happened,” one source said. “Uh, yeah,” another source said. “It was something big.” No one at the scene could confirm exactly what happened, but one University administrator, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said he expects the event will both cost a […]

Jones v. Clinton

The Paula Jones sexual harassment lawsuit against President Clinton finally has come to an end. After years of legal wrangling, maneuvering and delaying, the Clinton administration can claim one major victory in its prolonged war with a myriad of adversaries. Though Clinton can breathe a sigh of relief, the question of what constitutes sexual harassment […]

Confusing plot leaves audience Lost in Space

Despite magnificent graphics and special effects, Lost in Space (New Line Cinema) is poorly acted, horribly written and offers a muddled plot. Modeled after the 1960s television show “Lost in Space,” the film travels with the Robinson family across the galaxy. They try to discover another planet to sustain human life since Earth is becoming […]


A statement by Mary Jo Warner, the senior associate director of athletics at GW, was attributed incorrectly in the March 26 edition of The GW Hatchet (“Women’s water polo pushes for varsity status,” p.1). The article said GW has just started the process to ensure it complies with the law (meaning Title IX of the […]
