GW is hanging up its phone registration system. The University is replacing phone registration with online registration starting with the spring 2000 semester, University Registrar Brian Selinsky said. “Online registration has been around for a number of years,” Selinsky said. “It’s a lot easier, and if you do make a mistake, it’s all fixable and […]

GW’s Web site is ranked 14th among college sites in the number of people who searched for it and visited it each month, according to a new report from Lycos’ search engine HotBot.

GW cancels meeting with GTAAA

A GW vice president canceled last Thursday’s meeting with representatives of the Graduate Teaching Assistant-Adjunct Alliance as the group tries to gain union recognition at the University. “We regret the confusion over the earlier scheduled meeting, but now that it’s clear we’re dealing with a unionization effort, there are a host of duties and responsibilities […]

GW experiences technology changes

Students are plugging in, turning on, and booting up across GW and the nation. E-mail, Internet, and even compact disc burners have become a common sight in many residence hall rooms.

Guns don’t cause violence

Lora Machel’s article from the Arizona Daily Wildcat reprinted in Monday’s Hatchet (“Cold truth about guns, society,” p. 5) is typical of the left wing’s anti-gun rhetoric.
