Colonials shut out twice at home

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 […]

Colonial women split two games in Philly

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 […]

Letters to the Editor

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 […]

GW women earn first-ever win over UMass

In 14 matches against Massachusetts in its program’s history, the GW women’s soccer team had never beaten the Minutewomen. The Colonial women broke the losing steak Friday with their first-ever victory over UMass with a 1-0 win. GW (7-6, 5-0 Atlantic 10) also defeated Rhode Island on the road Sunday. The win over URI was […]

Turkey and its oppression of Islam

Growing up in the United States, we take for granted the basic rights our government allows its people. We grow up with the right to free thought, to choose our religion and to express our individual beliefs. When I decided to take up the scarf my sophomore year, I had many concerns. I worried about […]

Cherry honors father with debut album

When Eagle-Eye Cherry’s album Desireless (Work) goes into a CD player, it stays there for a while. 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 […]

SA needs to get a clue

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 […]

Soundtrack offers taste of wide range of genres

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 […]

Outdated computers bewilder students

A poster recently hung in Lafayette Hall read, “We need new computers because my washing machine has a faster processor than the computers downstairs.” The poster echoes the feelings of many students, who have grown frustrated with slow and outdated computers in campus residence halls, said Lafayette Hall President Daniel Laren. “(The Madison Hall computer […]

Bring in `Da Noise adds flair to past with rhythm

With feet stomping, tapping and clanking, Bring in `Da Noise, Bring in `Da Funk teaches invaluable art and history lessons through rhythm. The Tony Award-winning musical moves through 100 years of history during the two-hour performance, leaving the audience with more than just a better understanding of the time. Light, dancing, vocals and sound make […]
