GW at the millennium: GW students look for something to get emotional about

The troops convened to talk strategy at Gelman Library the Monday before they were to head home for Thanksgiving break. But the meeting of the 20 or so student activists of the GW chapter of United Students Against Sweatshops proceeded with less-than military precision. Their major goal was clear: persuading the school’s administration to cease […]

In the kitchen with Chef Kevin

The quiet voice of GW’s new Executive Chef Kevin Brown was barely audible over the sizzling food cooking on the stoves around him in the Marvin Center’s catering kitchen. Despite winning six Culinary Olympic Gold Medals, Brown says he’s still not completely comfortable speaking up about himself. But when prompted, it’s easy to see that […]

NAACP’s mission?

No matter what one may think of the opinions expressed in either The Hatchet’s Jan. 18 editorial, Stars and Barred (p. 4) or in Brian Schoeneman’s response (Jan. 20, p.4, Flag Misunderstood), this topic has raised an interesting question in my mind: With the myriad and complex problems facing black Americans, why are the National […]

Study abroad student killed while traveling

A Grinnell College student was robbed and murdered in northern India after completing a fall study-abroad program administered by GW last semester. Jamison Curran, a 21-year-old junior at Grinnell College, studied in Madurai in the fall term of GW’s South India Term Abroad.

Basketball ‘overkill’

I was reading the article about the poor performance of the basketball team this year, and it dawned upon me. If I’m not mistaken there are other sports teams at this school.
