Stories from the January 25, 2001 issue of the GW Hatchet.

Bush’s abortion debacle

Amid the pomp and parading of the George W. Bush inauguration, Republicans wondered how it was possible for anyone to protest the new president. However, by the end of Bush’s first full day of office, we learned that we could not begin the protests early enough. As one of its first decisions, the Bush administration […]

Lacking all the answers

It is the kind of book that is discretely taken off the shelf and quickly skimmed through in a desolate corner of the bookstore. It is the type of book people buy online to save the embarrassment of being seen holding it in front of others. Few people like to admit they need help, especially […]

Letter: Protest this…

Hey, the next time GW has the opportunity to host an event honoring American heroes – our veterans – let’s make sure we get the GW College Democrats to protest. I mean come on, why don’t you guys just kick my dog while you are at it? To say the least, it was in poor […]

Burying the Hatchet

My boyfriend and I have been going together for about two months.

Created last October with a grant from the Pew Charitable Trusts, the Democracy Online Project […]

Somers Hall opening delayed

A 180-bed extension to Somers Hall on the Mount Vernon campus will not be ready to open next fall as planned because of delays receiving a building permit and slowed construction from bad weather, University officials said. The planned completion date was pushed to September from August after contractors realized they could not meet the […]

Staff Editorial: Communicating construction

The growing list of GW’s off-schedule construction projects now includes the Somers Hall addition at the Mount Vernon Campus. But unlike with past construction projects, the University is taking laudable and responsible steps to notify students early and implement a plan that promises to satisfy both the housing crunch and students’ needs. The expansion of […]
