Residence halls choose leaders

Residence Hall Association elections were held Monday and Tuesday to hall councils. Residence hall councils include a president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer and two RHA representatives.

Commissioner caught in half-truths

While The Hatchet quoted Advisory Neighborhood Council Commissioner Steven Mandelbaum at length and recognized that he is indeed a GW graduate (Residents testify against plan at hearing, Sept. 14, p. 1), unfortunately, it might not have noticed the inconsistencies in his arguments and, more importantly, the diametric turn he now fashions since he ran as […]
