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 […]

Forum: Policies protect students, property

As a community facilitator in LaFayette Hall last year, I came in daily contact with students who questioned, and pushed, the limits of the University’s alcohol policy.

Gore highlights Howard U.

I would like to thank The Hatchet for its work on the article Gore speaks at Howard (Sept. 17, p 1). As an African-American Washingtonian, I am always proud to see the city’s historically-black institutions given the respect they deserve. As the article correctly pointed out, Howard University has served as a prestigious higher education […]
