The season for the GW men’s soccer team went from bad to worse this weekend. The Colonials were shut out in two matches at South Riding Field, losing to Massachusetts 1-0 on an own goal Friday before losing 2-0 to Rhode Island Sunday. The pair of home losses were the 11th and 12th straight matches […]
PHILADELPHIA – The GW women’s volleyball team showed signs of tremendous ability during its weekend split of two games in Philadelphia but at other times showed a lack of focus and intensity. GW was dominated from start to finish against defending Atlantic 10 champion Temple Friday, but the Colonial women bounced back to defeat an […]
Freedom of choice I found Katherine Wootton’s Oct. 8 letter to the editor disturbing (“Misguided attacks,” p. 4). It seems to sum up an attitude toward our government and the laws it makes for us that could become dangerous. Ms. Wootton was responding to another letter that suggested everyone on campus drinks by saying that […]
In 14 matches against Massachusetts in its program’s history, the GW women’s soccer team had never beaten the Minutewomen.

On his debut album, Cherry fuses the sounds of jazz, blues, pop, folk and modern rock into a powerful, irresistible mixture. Son of legendary jazz musician Don Cherry and brother of pop/hip-hop singers Nenah and Titiyo, Eagle-Eye Cherry […]
In the Oct. 5 issue of The GW Hatchet, Sens. Beth Lester and Heath Hansen defended the Student Association as “the only group on campus that represents every single GW student” (“SA actively represents students,” p. 4). While these two SA senators were correct in their definitive description of what the SA is supposed to […]
Ever go to a restaurant and order the sampler? It offers a little taste of everything – usually a few chicken fingers, a couple of wings, some onion rings and on a rare occasion, those tiny delectable breaded mushrooms. The Practical Magic soundtrack (Reprise Records) is the music industry’s version of the sampler, complete with […]
