Stories from the November 2, 2000 issue of the GW Hatchet.

Golf finishes last

The GW golf team ended its fall season with a disappointing last-place finish Tuesday at the Seascape Invitational Tournament in Kitty Hawk, N.C. A solid finish in this tournament would have given the Colonials a shot at a national competition. The Colonials competed against some of the best teams in the nation, including No. 6 […]

Healthcare is a right

I find the conclusion of the Hatchet editorial on RU-486/abortion pill (Choosing choice, Oct. 10) very unsettling. As the editorial states, sometimes contraception fails; in those instances responsible adults … deserve the option of a non-invasive, medical abortion such as RU-486.Is an implication of that, irresponsible adults don’t deserve that option? If so, and if […]

Volleyball haunted in Temple of doom

The GW volleyball team came one point away from exorcising its Temple Owl demons on Halloween night at McGonigle Hall in Philadelphia. But, somehow and someway, Temple extended its dominance over the heartbroken Colonials winning Tuesday’s five-game thriller 15-11, 10-15, 11-15, 15-13, 16-14. The loss dropped GW (19-5, 10-2 Atlantic 10) into a second-place tie […]

GOP offers `top ten’ to educate voters

Since this is the final Forum before the election, I want to take this time to encourage everyone who has not voted to send in their absentee ballot or vote at their respective polling stations in D.C., Virginia or Maryland. This election is going to be the closest in 40 years and you can make […]

Web-only feature: Reggae duo sings songs of peace

The world sunk closer to war on Oct. 12, as Middle-East violence escalated and terrorism took center stage. But out of D.C. the message was clear: positivity, peace and unity for all. These words were not preached by President Bill Clinton or a Pentagon official, but reverberated through the crowd amassed to see reggae legends […]

Web-only feature: Papa Roach Infests the world of rock

As the sun began slowly maneuvering behind the 50-foot buildings in downtown Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, a huge mass of people patiently awaited the star performance of rock’s new unsung heroes, Papa Roach. Held at Power Plant Live and sponsored by WHFS 99.1, the free concert lured thousands. People maneuvered their way into the nearby parking […]

Pledging your allegiance

OK, so I’ve never taken the No. 7 to Flushing, but I have taken the Grand Central Parkway to Shea Stadium to watch the Mets. I know that doesn’t sound as catchy, but I am still a real fan. As I sat in front of the television in my John Franco T-shirt watching game five […]

Priority registration under fire

Student athletes are busy people. They must work their schedule of practices, workouts and games around their class schedules. To make this process easier, the University offers athletes priority registration – a chance to reserve their classes before the rest of students fight for limited spots in classes. Eleven other student groups on campus receive […]
