Stories from the December 4, 2000 issue of the GW Hatchet.

Students’ opinions foolish, pointless

I have had a great college experience except for one thing. There are always people in my classes who for some reason believe they are just smarter than everyone else is. They spout long speeches defending some position purposely using big words to show some sort of superior intelligence over the rest of the students. […]

GW pitches ISP deal with AOL

GW has big hopes for the future of interactive learning and the role of the internet in University life. With a new GW portal set to launch in December to give students one-stop-shopping for University resources, David Swartz, chief information officer for Information Systems and Services, said he is going one step further to bring […]
