Food fusion makes a comeback at Raku

The idea of fusion food, which is made by combining two different cuisines, seems to be in decline these days. This is probably not a bad thing, as the new rise of home-style cooking tends to lead to cheaper meals and better food. But every once in a while a restaurant challenges my thinking on […]

What I want to be when I grow up

The time has come. For years parents, teachers, aunts and neighbors have posed the same question: “What do you want to be when you grow up?” This May, GW’s “grown-up” seniors are finally going to have to answer them. The days of responses like firefighter, football player and ballerina have passed, but hardly any childhood […]

Presence is Oha’s gift

Presence (n): The bearing, carriage, or air of a person. 2: A quality of pose and effectiveness that enables a performer to achieve a close relationship with his audience. 3: Something felt or believed to be present. 4: Ugo Oha. Freshman center Ugo Oha is a presence for the GW women’s basketball team in every […]

Burying The Hatchet

I fell hard for this girl I work with. We work in a pretty intense setting, long hours and a lot of time together, but we became good friends outside of work, too. We both enjoy a lot of the same things, although we don’t necessarily hang out with the same kinds of people. Ever […]

Brief: Student robbed in Corcoran Hall

Metropolitan Police and University Police are searching for a man who robbed a female student in Corcoran Hall Jan. 24, UPD Director Dolores Stafford said. The student was in a hallway in Corcoran Hall at 2:45 p.m. when a man approached her, grabbed her bag and stole $200 before fleeing the scene, Stafford said. “There […]

Oha, Colonials breeze past

The La Salle Explorers could not find their way around GW’s freshman center, Ugo Oha in the Colonials 70-55 victory Tuesday night at the Smith Center. The 6-4 Oha was more than just a presence, as Coach Joe McKeown described her after the game. She was a giant oak tree the Explorers couldn’t shoot over. […]

Staff Editorial: GW plaza

Last February GW acquired about 29 percent of Columbia Plaza with no “plans to turn the apartments into a part of the residence-hall system,” according to a Feb. 10 issue of The Hatchet. Now GW has placed Columbia Plaza in the housing lottery. While University officials say they do not consider the housing lottery part […]

Building delays occur around D.C.

D.C. construction contractors say they are running into many of the same problems that have pushed several GW construction projects past their scheduled completion deadlines. University officials cite worker shortages and city permits as two main holdups in campus construction projects, such as the Media and Public Affairs building and an addition to Somers Hall […]

PB bites back

We at the Program Board were quite surprised to read the Jan. 29 staff editorial in The GW Hatchet that stated we have decided not to produce “big” concerts anymore (“The day music died”). We are baffled as to how The GW Hatchet reached this conclusion. Here are the facts: PB will produce a major […]

GW adds Columbia Plaza option

GW upperclassmen will choose from rooms in Columbia Plaza in GW’s March housing lottery, the first time the building has been available to on-campus residents. When GW acquired a 28.55 percent share of Columbia Plaza in February last year, the University provided students with first pick of any rooms that open and extended the Student […]
