Stories from the November 20, 2000 issue of the GW Hatchet.

Hatchet editorial misses the mark

The editorial, Appeal to absurdity, dismayed and disappointed us, mostly because it evidenced incomplete information and a hasty conclusion that the Foggy Bottom community is ridiculous and our appeal spurious. For instance, contrary to the implication that the appeal was filed even though construction . is already underway, the appeal was filed in October 1999, […]

Reel Big Fish goes belly-up at 9:30 Club

Does anyone remember that week when ska was cool? Ska is often dismissed as a phase in mainstream music that came and went years ago. This was a relief to many longtime ska fans who felt the genre had become too commercial and watered down by popular bands such as The Mighty Mighty Bosstones. Many […]

Men dominate Texas A&M in home opener

Foul trouble held last year’s leading GW scorer SirValiant Brown to a career-low nine shots Saturday night, but the Colonials proved in their 94-74 thumping of visiting Texas A&M University that they have the offensive weapons to score without Brown’s presence on the court.

Volleyball wins A-10 tourney

The GW women’s volleyball team completed its magical conference season Sunday by winning the Atlantic 10 Tournament in a five-game thriller against Xavier at the Frericks Center in Dayton, Ohio. The A-10 champion Colonials, who dedicated the season to late head coach Yvette Moorehead, will receive an automatic berth to the NCAA Tournament, which begins […]

Spotlight: Student raises homelessness awareness in Foggy Bottom

At first glance sophomore Brian Miller, 21, may seem like your typical GW student. Miller, a double major in human services and political science, is often busy with schoolwork and his job waiting tables at a local restaurant. While this does not seem all that unusual, there is something very special about this student. When […]

Mail delays GW ballots

Students said they were unable to cast their vote for the 2000 election because they received their absentee ballots as much as two weeks late. Junior Christie Kure said she received her Missouri absentee ballot 18 days after the Oct. 16 postmark, which made her unable to vote and return the ballot by the state’s […]
