It is unfortunate that The Hatchet’s Jan. 28 editorial “Staying separate,” (p. 4), retains a close-minded and unhelpful attitude toward freshmen Clark Harding and Kathy Rooney and their fight to room together next year.

The Nuremberg Files – Staff editorial

Men and women could share Mount Vernon residence hall

Male and female residents may share Mount Vernon’s Pelham Hall this fall after residents of the women’s campus complained this week about GW’s decision to house men in the hall.
