Setting election priorities

Now that election season is in full swing, I feel that it is my public duty to remind all of you gentle readers to get out and vote. Perhaps some of you are still undecided and grappling over which candidate best suits your views. Relax, I’m not here to discuss the neck-and-neck race between Bush […]

Staff editorial: Ticket fix?

The Athletic Department placed a full-page advertisement in The Hatchet touting a new program to sell reserved season tickets to students for $50. The tickets would be located in the Gold section – the seats behind the basket at the top of the arena. This proposal would allow students to purchase seats in advance to […]

Staff editorial: Commencement solutions

The Student Association passed a resolution Tuesday demanding that GW continue its tradition of holding Commencement on the Ellipse. While students and administrators agree that the Ellipse is the best venue for the ceremony, factors beyond the University’s control may force GW to seek another site.

Students doubt SA progress

Members of the Student Association said the SA Senate has passed fewer pieces of legislation so far than in previous years because members are focusing on issues that affect more people and trying to write legislation that makes a difference.

The article, along with the supporting table, give the impression that, in Economics 11 as well as […]

Many GW students have beat others to the ballot box by casting their vote for president through absentee ballots to their home states. Registering at their home county offices, students have received ballots in the past few weeks. Students must fill out the ballots and mail them to their county offices by their home state’s […]

Make no mistake: Yanks just evil

As a Hatchet editorial board alumna, still-faithful reader and native New Englander, I couldn’t resist responding to Rooting for the lesser of two evils (Oct. 26, p. 20). Since my fellow Boston Red Sox fan Lauren Silva was so moved by her viewing of a recent documentary about Joe DiMaggio, perhaps she’d like to read […]

Service day forgotten

We are writing to you with regard to The National Gandhi Day of Service, an annual national community service project in which GW took part on Sept. 30. We were disappointed to see that The Hatchet chose not to cover the project even though one of our coordinators personally came by The Hatchet office to […]
