Stories from the February 20, 2001 issue of the GW Hatchet.
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 […]
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 […]
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.” […]
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 […]
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, […]
The National Gallery of Art has always been a magnet for culturally significant works of art. Its latest exhibit affirms this reputation. “Modern Art and America: Alfred Stieglitz and his New York Galleries” is by far one of the most comprehensive and captivating exhibits recently shown in the gallery. As the name would suggest, the […]
In its handling of so-called telephone fraud by students (“UPD Investigates Telephone Fraud,” Feb. 15, p. 1), the University has behaved hypocritically. GW is a large bureaucratic organization with dozens of departments dealing with everything from accounting to healthcare to food preparation. Inevitably in such a large organization, mistakes are made and in some cases […]
Everyone has read text books, seen talk shows and heard stories about the subject of discrimination, but just how much does it affect our everyday lives and activities? This is precisely the question sophomore Asad Chaudhry set out to answer. An assignment in the honors sociology class Chaudhry took last semester, required students to teach […]
