Monumental mistake

I am a Ph.D student in the Department of Political Science, an Elliott School MA alumna and a former student of Peter Rollberg. I was very dismayed by the repeated misspellings of the names of people quoted in Thursday’s article on the unveiling of the Pushkin monument (University unveils Pushkin sculpture, Sept. 21, p. 1), […]

Foggy Bottom Guide – Townhouses offer unique environment

Tucked away in a quiet corner of Historic Foggy Bottom is one of the district’s best-kept secrets. Through a wrought-iron gate on New Hampshire Avenue lies the row-home style condominiums of Foggy Bottom Mews, a community laden with a charm and character all its own. Entering the brick courtyard of the small 14-unit complex, the […]

Burt’s PB blunder

What is perhaps most disturbing about Student Association President David Burt’s call for a reallocation in Program Board funding (SA questions PB funding, Sept. 21, p. 1.), is the fact that Burt simply overlooks the importance of a strong, student-run programming group on campus. Indeed, unlike the SA, PB offers a plethora of successful, innovative, […]

Foggy Bottom Guide – Local groups encourage students to get active

For many students, the words Foggy Bottom may connote no more than campus parameters. For nearby residents and businesses, however, the Foggy Bottom area holds significance both as a historic and dynamic community. Two groups of residents, the Foggy Bottom Association and the Advisory Neighborhood Council, have been working to preserve the area’s historic qualities. […]

Techno legend Photek opens up to The GW Hatchet

Thanks to the so-called, electronica revolution, of the mid-90s, techno music quickly gained a newfound visibility and a set of celebrities. What had once been a pretty faceless genre of music: DJs hidden behind decks of turntables and producers churning out the tracks they spun, saw a rise of faces to go with the newly […]

An ode to ‘bushjumping’

There is a phenomenon that sweeps our campus,And it is not the belief in the lost city of Atlantis.It tangos in the valley and rumbles in the dell;Some say it emanates from Dante’s Seventh Circle of Hell.It is neither Christina Aguilera nor Britney Spears,Who is a freshwoman at GW from what I hears. This is […]

Staff editorial – Fighting violence

In 1994 President Clinton signed into law the Violence Against Women Act, a bill that provided federal funding for women’s shelters, anti-domestic abuse programs and other initiatives intended to protect women’s rights. Included in the law was a provision defining “a crime of violence motivated by gender” as “a crime of violence committed because of […]

Staff editorial – Speak out

Tuesday, at One Judiciary Square, room 220, the Board of Zoning Adjustment, the D.C. government’s final authority on construction issues, will hear comments from anyone touched by the University’s campus plan. Both the University and the BZA encourage students to come and be heard. Students must exercise their rights and make their feelings known lest […]

GW bids on hotel property

GW placed a bid to purchase One Washington Circle Hotel last month, but University officials said negotiations have been delayed by the building’s owner. Starwood Hotels and Resorts, one of the largest hotel groups in the world, owns the One Washington Circle property, but has not decided whether to sell, a spokeswoman for the company […]
