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.

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.

Both the University and the BZA encourage students to come and be heard. Students must exercise their rights and make their feelings known lest […]
