Stories from the January 27, 2000 issue of the GW Hatchet.
Students who walked through the Marvin Center this week might have seen a small booth on the main floor, adjacent to the information desk, selling the new game on campus known as GWopoly. While it is inspired by the popular best-selling game Monopoly, GWopoly has its own unique qualities reflecting GW’s campus. The Student Activities […]
During a two-day stretch when the University was shut down because of a paralyzing snowstorm, GW managed to have a good time and feed its students – two essentials of college life.

Freshman Anthony Balistrieri rushed into the Hippodrome after an invigorating game of snow football with his newest friends – his fraternity brothers.

Balistrieri is the president of GW’s newest fraternity, […]

Head coach Margie Foster-Cunningham’s team won the Atlantic 10 Championship the past two seasons, and it was chosen to win it once again this year by the A-10 coaches.

Judging by the 3,345 fans and packed student section that showed up Wednesday night at the Smith Center for GW’s tilt with the surprising Bonnies of St. Bonaventure, not everyone in Foggy Bottom had given up on the Colonials yet. Most importantly, neither had the Colonials. Playing its first home game with students in class […]
