Job Hunting Guide: Apartment rates, demand on rise

GW students said they are disappointed with the results of this year’s housing lottery. There were three of us and only doubles left on campus, freshman Greg Christensen said. So we had to play rock-paper-scissors, and I lost. For students whose lottery numbers did not provide them with the on-campus housing they desired, there are […]

SirValiant Brown, superstar

I’m sitting in Viva Java with SirValiant Brown discussing the mysteries of fame when a freshman named Mary runs up to the table. She is practically hyperventilating as she pulls out her ID holder, revealing a Hatchet clipping of Brown tucked safely away. She asks him if he will sign it for her. Thank you […]

Job Hunting Guide: Internet opens the door to employment

For many GW students, the year doesn’t end with finals. A summer without class means opportunities to acquire extra income and added experience for a future career. Increasingly, college students are turning to Internet resources to find openings for jobs and internships that provide such opportunities. Finding a job, once a tedious, paperwork-laden process, is […]

Protestors descend upon GW campus

About 600 people, including a Washington Post photographer, were arrested Saturday and many more took over the streets of Foggy Bottom Sunday as International Monetary Fund and World Bank meetings began. The arrests occurred after hundreds of protestors walked from the Department of Justice toward the World Bank. After approaching 21st Street and Pennsylvania Avenue, […]

Cartoon calamity

I was amazed by the editorial cartoon in Thursday’s issue. No doubt referring to the upcoming World Bank/International Monetary Fund demonstrations, the cartoonist declared Protests are anti-American – if you don’t love your country, move! In fact, the right to assemble in peaceful protest is the most valuable cornerstone of American democracy. As a woman, […]

Baseball drops finale

The GW baseball team won a doubleheader Saturday but lost game three in a weekend series at Barcroft Park against Dayton. The series was characterized by strong offense from seniors Ryan Dacey and Matt Walker and sophomore Matt Krimmel. The Colonials (26-17, 8-4 Atlantic 10) will play at Georgetown Tuesday. Dayton 7, GW 4Sunday, April […]

Article overlooks Blowout success

This response is in regard to the front page article in the April 6 issue of the Hatchet, entitled Members find party disorganized. As a member of the South Asian community, I would like to express my disappointment with the way The Hatchet chose to cover the event. It is a shame that The Hatchet […]

IMF/World Bank Protests: GW takes center stage in protests

Scores of protesters from across the country swarmed onto GW’s campus Sunday in an unpredictable and sometimes volatile demonstration. Demonstrations ranged from dancing and singing along with drumbeats, to chanting during marches, to skirmishes with Metropolitan and University police departments. Protesters, many of whom were attempting to close Sunday’s International Monetary Fund and World Bank […]

Celebrating the fall

Laugh. That was all I could do as I read The Hatchet’s April 10 news brief Fraternity shoe tree takes a fall. As one of the proud leaders of the 1996 campaign against the misogynistic attitudes and behaviors of certain fraternities on campus – shoes included – I celebrate the fall of the shoes. I […]
