Nader needed in debates

In recent editions of The Hatchet, the College Democrats and College Republicans have faced off on important issues in the upcoming elections. There is one problem. We still have more than six weeks until the elections. If the current pace of one debate a week continues, before October, there will be no issues left to […]

Gore speaks at Howard University

About 100 GW College Democrats visited Howard University to listen to Democratic presidential nominee Al Gore address a packed auditorium Friday. The event wrapped up Gore’s weeklong campaign trip promoting his education platform. Students said they enjoyed Gore’s uncharacteristically energetic and humorous speech, which followed his guest appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman […]

On-campus calculus

I read with interest the article entitled Senior residents still live at GW in the Sept. 11 Hatchet (p. 6). I live in The Schenley this year and am curious to learn more about the residents I have seen in the residence hall. I was amazed when I came to the sentence, Schutjer said the […]

Freshmen flock to fall rush

Fraternities and sororities hosted a myriad of activities this weekend, drawing the largest turnout in recent years, Interfraternity Council and Panhellenic Association officials said. About 175 underclassmen attended a kick-off event that included 11 fraternities and 18 Papa John’s pizzas, IFC President Jay Levin said.

Fall preview – Golf tees off season

Last season the GW golf team had lofty expectations placed on them after finishing a strong 1998-99 season ranked third in the Atlantic 10.

GW underachieved last season, finishing fifth in the Atlantic 10 and 17th […]

Staff editorial – Self-rule revisited

The Universty has, once again, approved self-governance for the Interfraternity Council. The IFC will attempt to enforce policy in minor cases handed down at the discretion of Student Judicial Services. The lack of unity among IFC fraternities is evidence that this experiment granting fraternities the power to regulate their own affairs could again fail and […]

Fall preview – Men’s soccer starts strong

Having already matched the number of wins for last year’s entire season, the GW men’s soccer team shows few signs of apprehension on the soccer field.

Fall preview – Women’s soccer: We’re going to strike

The GW women’s soccer team has begun its quest for the Atlantic 10 Championship. The Colonials are not as far along as they would like to be, starting the season 1-5, but there is a team sentiment that something special is growing. We’re going to strike, tri-captain Jessica Sultzer said. I think we’re going to […]

Fall preview – Crew out to break personal, team records

In rowing the term PR stands for personal record. And the men’s and women’s crew teams are looking to set new ones for the 2000-01 season in order to improve on last year’s outstanding finish. Last spring the Colonial women placed second at A-10’s and 14th at Eastern Sprints. A silver medal at the National […]
