HOVA hosts `October Orgy’

Administrators and students in the Hall on Virginia Avenue participated in a game, called October Orgy, designed to show students how quickly sexually transmitted diseases could spread through unprotected sex, said seventh floor Community Facilitator Maureen Fleming. In the game, held in the last week of October, each student was given five contraceptives, and students […]

Basketball Preview: NOTE to all GW fans, the advantage is you

Despite being an only child of two Temple alums – one being a die-hard college basketball fan, the other an avid shopper – I never grew up rooting whole-heartedly for the Owls program. Sure I rooted for Eddie Jones and Aaron McKie in the mid-1990s, and unless it’s GW that they play, I won’t root […]

SA impeachment hearing looms amid student apathy

GW students are sometimes apathetic to the Student Association and its whims, but many will have to take interest when the SA Senate meets to decide the fate of impeached President Phil Meisner Tuesday night. In fact, out of about 17,025 full- and part-time students, only 2,090 students voted in the 1999 election that sent […]

Article misinterprets SAPC’s role

As the manager of the Substance Abuse Prevention Center (SAPC) at GW, I want to correct some misinterpretations from last Monday’s article A culture behind closed doors, (p. 1). The writer said that the SAPC is the organization that deals with illegal drug use on campus. The SAPC is actually the department within the University […]

Basketball Preview: The Hatchet’s Men’s Atlantic 10 Predictions

WEST 1. Xavier. Last season: 25-11 (12-4, 2nd), NIT semifinals; Skip Prosser, sixth year (106-45) After losing three stars, one might ask how Xavier could still win the West. The answer is Darnell Williams. If all goes well, another NCAA berth is likely. 2. George Washington. Last season: 20-9 (13-3, 1st), NCAA first round; Tom […]

Students sell dates for charity

Contestants broke out their Austin Powers impersonations, hula-hooping skills and musical talents during the Chinese American Students Association Date Auction in the Mitchell Hall Theater Friday. The 23 auctioned dates, or the goods as Masters of Ceremonies Jenni Suen and Martin Kim called them, had two choices once they arrived on stage: play a game […]

Cruising for trouble — staff editorial

University Police should be commended for its successful sting operation, barring from campus individuals who were caught soliciting sex in the Marvin Center men’s bathrooms. Sex in public places is unacceptable, and GW is taking steps to end the situation on campus. Twenty men were caught in the two-week sting operation. They will be permanently […]

Basketball Preview: The Hatchet’s Women’s Atlantic 10 Predictions

West 1. Virginia Tech (28-3, 15-1)- Head Coach Bonnie Hendrickson. Despite graduating five seniors, the Lady Hokies return three starters, including juniors Tere Williams (15.6 ppg) and Amy Wetzel (14.4 ppg). 2. Xavier (24-9, 11-5)- Head Coach Melanie Balcomb. Xavier returns four starters who scored in double digits last season, including junior Nicole Levandusky (15.8 […]

Meisner’s junta and other lunacy

This past Thursday I took the GRE and had planned on serving up a delicious satire of the test’s questions. You know, stuff like Trees are to goat cheese as a lunar rover is to a) political science, b) Louis XIV, c) a rake, or d) pingpong. But then my roommate Chris reminded me that […]

Basketball Preview: `The sky’s the limit’ for 1999-2000 GW women

The GW women’s basketball team was one win away from their ninth consecutive 20-win season last year. The Colonial women were also probably one win away from their sixth-straight NCAA Tournament and eighth in the last nine years, but the injury-plagued 1998-1999 team lost to rival St. Joseph’s in the second round of the Atlantic […]
