Women’s Atlantic 10 Standings

GW trails Xavier by just half a game for the A-10 regular season title and a No. 1 seed in the A-10 Tournament held in Philadelphia. The Colonials are closing in on their ninth NCAA bid in the past 11 seasons. Last year GW earned an at-large bid after losing to Xavier in the A-10 […]

The Columbian School of Arts and Sciences hosted its first Major Exploration Fair Thursday in the Marvin Center to provide undecided students a full scope of the majors GW offers.

Letter to the editor: Positive program

Your story on the GW World Community study abroad program (“Program lacks applicants,” Feb. 15, p. 1) attributed to me statements I did not make and opinions I do not hold. I am proud of the GW World Community program and the professionalism of those who helped put it together. I am also a long-time […]

The No. 25 GW women’s gymnastics team swept its long weekend with a dominating win over the University of Maryland and a first-place finish at the Towson Invitational. Once again, Devin McCalla stole the show. After earning her second-straight Atlantic 10 Performer of the Week honor Monday afternoon, McCalla led GW to a 194.750-191.700 win […]

Letter to the Editor: Performance ignored

I have written to The Hatchet multiple times about a campus-sponsored production of “The Vagina Monologues” that took place Feb. 15-17. This was not just another play put on by some random student theatre group. This was a play with a purpose. It was all about helping women find their beauty and empowering women to […]

Letter to the Editor: Unfair hiring

University President Stephen Joel Trachtenberg, in a “town hall meeting” on academic affairs, said the University has “a standing offer to any department that if they can find an outstanding professor of color, we (the University administration) will help recruit them … even if the department lacks the financial assets to bring another professor on.” […]

CFs step down, cite CLLC flaws

Community Facilitator Mike Donaldson’s resignation last week makes him the 16th CF out of 82 to quit this year. Last year, 12 CFs left their posts by the end of the school year. While some CFs left this year to study abroad or for medical reasons, others said the Community Living and Learning Center has […]

Letter to the Editor: Mail mix up

On Wednesday morning before the inauguration, an important and time sensitive piece of mail was sent to me through the U.S. Postal Service’s express overnight service. According to the package tracking, it arrived on campus on Thursday at 11:42 a.m. I should have, in theory, received that package on Thursday or Friday, maybe even Saturday, […]
