Stories from the January 16, 2001 issue of the GW Hatchet.

Letter to the Editor: Telecom correction

I read “Phone outages annoy students” (Dec. 11, p. 3) and have found one serious misquote regarding what I said to The Hatchet. In the tenth paragraph I am quoted as having said that the problem persisted for one and one-half weeks and that all systems had returned to normal status Dec. 8. In fact […]

GW women fend off Xavier, St Joe’s takes first place

Amid the start of a new year, the GW women’s basketball team did something it has not done this season – beat a nationally ranked team. The Colonials’ win over Atlantic 10 rival Xavier (No. 22) Jan. 6 at the Smith Center launched GW to a 4-0 A-10 start, with conference wins over Duquesne, St. […]

Post-game altercation at Hawaii tourney puts GW in national spotlight

The last thing GW coach Tom Penders needed was a distraction that would divert his team’s attention away from the real reason why the Colonials were playing in a tournament almost 5,000 miles away from Foggy Bottom.

Subletting adventures

Jan. 11, 2001 1:30 p.m. 900 24th St. Unit E College is full of life’s little lessons – your first time living on your own, renting an apartment or perhaps even subletting a friend’s place. Another lesson is the difference between the two. I returned to D.C. from sub-freezing Pennsylvania in the unseasonable 60-degree sunshine […]

Spotlight: Thurston Hall breaks the gender barrier

In 1869, almost 50 years after the founding of GW, then known as Columbian College, Belva Ann Bennett Lockwood became the first woman to officially express a desire to study at GW. University officials turned down her application to the law school, saying that there was no public want for female lawyers, and therefore no […]
