Colonials to battle Dayton in A-10 Championships

The GW men’s soccer will make its first postseason appearance in eight years Friday night against top-ranked Dayton in the first round of the Atlantic 10 Championships at Rhode Island. If the No. 4-seeded Colonials win, they would advance to the championship round to play either No. 2 Massachusetts or No. 3 Rhode Island. The […]

Students cruise on the Potomac

Students and faculty enjoyed mild autumn weather Saturday as they toured the Potomac River on a cruise sponsored by GW’s Student Academic and Support Services. GW sponsors the Odyssey Cruise to build connections between students and faculty members in a social atmosphere, said Bridget Cooper, assistant to the vice president for SASS. Last year we […]

Crew disappoints at Princeton

The GW crew team’s fall season is a time of hard work and preparation for the sprint racing in the spring. Last weekend the men’s and women’s teams entered their top boats in the Princeton Chase on Lake Carnegie in Princeton, N.J. The men’s team faced tough competition in the Men’s Heavyweight Eight Event in […]

MSA teaches ancient art

Members of the Muslim Student Association shared the ancient art of glass painting with other students last week. Anisah Bagasra, a member of the MSA, said she began painting four years ago. Glass painting is a very religiously oriented activity, Bagasra said. The topics of the painting are nearly always related to the Muslim religion. […]

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 […]
