Stories from the April 13, 1998 issue of the GW Hatchet.

Letters to the Editor

MVC FYI We want to express our concern regarding the reference to Mount Vernon College students in The Hatchet’s April Fool’s editorial, “Screw the Ellipse!,” (p.4). The reference to Mount Vernon College students as, “our bitches” was offensive, disturbing and grossly inappropriate. The Hatchet’s response thus far has been to indicate that the editorial, like […]

Waxing nostalgic about Camden Yards

I have discovered my true calling in life: I will sell peanuts for a living at Camden Yards. Okay, so it’s not completely economically feasible, but my grasp on reality is weakening as graduation looms larger in my future. Since I am in the denial phase, I will now cease talking about the G-word all […]

Some choices for continuing my legacy, plus my Gospel

Did you see the ad last week? The GW Hatchet is taking applications for a replacement page two columnist. I am, after all, hopefully graduating and being upsized from this job. So in order to help the new editorial board make its decision about my replacement, I conducted some interviews this week with various campus […]

Dawn in Ireland

The wave of Troubles that began in Ireland in 1968 may now be nearing its end. Last week, fittingly enough on Good Friday, negotiations between British and Irish, Catholic and Protestant politicians ended successfully with an agreement all major parties supported. An agreement has been ironed out between the parties whose hatred of each other […]

Advising blues

Academic advising, especially during freshman year, sets the course of students’ college careers. If a person enters college to meet knowledgeable, interested and coherent advisors, a GW education will come much more smoothly – and graduating on time is all but a sure thing. However, Columbian School advising is plagued by professors who simply sign […]

Law school opts to oust professor

After months of deliberation over GW Law School Professor Elizabeth Glass Geltman’s decision to use another professor’s old exam as her own, the GW Law School recently chose not to renew her three-year teaching contract with the University. Geltman was hired in 1995 as an associate professor to teach environmental law classes. Her first class, […]

Union Station gala will draw record crowd, GW expects

University administrators are expecting a record turnout for Monumental Celebration this year after it came close to extinction as a way to cut costs for Commencement weekend. The Commencement Committee recommended suspending University support for Monumental Celebration in January, to offset the costs of graduation on the Ellipse. However, GW President Stephen Joel Trachtenberg pledged […]

Columbian blues: students pay for communication gaps with advisors

Anne Henderson will graduate on the Ellipse this May with honors in English. Henderson takes pride in this accomplishment, but a thought still lingers in her mind – she has only taken two upper-level English courses at GW. To graduate with a degree from the Columbian School, students must complete a solid sample of classes […]
