Letter to the Editor: Money matters

I am replying to your editorial of Feb. 15 regarding the Board of Zoning Adjustment’s decision with regards to GW’s campus plan (“Rethink restrictions”). I was an Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner in Foggy Bottom when GW submitted its campus plan to our organization and ultimately to the BZA. Your editorial criticizes the BZA for ruling the […]

Letter to the Editor: MVC misquote

I am concerned about inaccuracies in your article with the headline “Program lacks applicants” (Feb. 15, p. 1). Specifically, the first paragraph is not an accurate representation of any statement I made in a conversation with The Hatchet. First, I never indicated that there was a lack of interest in the program. Quite the contrary, […]

Residents anticipate MVC changes

Students living at the Mount Vernon Campus said they look forward to some big changes to their campus next year, but with coed housing, new athletic fields and ties to the Honors Program, they hope the campus can keep its intimate setting. “I think making the campus coed will help it,” freshman Kimberly Gray said. […]

Costner gets back in audience’s good graces

Kevin Costner either hits big or misses big. Audiences endured a number of Costner flicks in recent years that fall into that latter category, featuring him as a love-obsessed Romeo, a crazed postmaster general and a post-apocalyptic hero with a propensity to drink urine. Costner returns to the big screen in 3000 Miles to Graceland […]

Op-Ed: Program floors still popular success

I read with great interest the article “Popular programs disappoint” that appeared in the features section of the Feb. 16 issue of The Hatchet (p. 6). Unfortunately, the article had numerous inaccuracies and a skewed perspective. I would like to correct some of the misstatements in the article. Approximately 600 first-year students are involved in […]

Student reports assault near Aston

A female student reported a man in a car grabbed her and forced her to see him masturbate at the intersection of 22nd and L streets near Aston Hall. The simple assault marks the second crime a student reported this month. Three students have been assaulted at the intersection since November. A male in a […]

Fairytales take revenge in “The Skrikers” at MVC

In its latest play GW student group Forbidden Planet Productions takes on an elaborate story that even professional production companies would have a hard time telling. The group manages to paint a clear picture of the British play “The Skriker” without confusing even the least-versed audience. While playgoers may want to brush up on the […]

Op-Ed: No pardon for Republican tactics

Bill Clinton has been out of office now for about a month. One would think that the venomous hate for Clinton that loyal Republican soldiers so readily and shamelessly flaunted when he was in office would finally subside. After all, the Republican Party is supposedly “new” if you listen to the words of President George […]

GW plans dance marathon

In a joint effort, some GW student groups are sponsoring an event that has raised millions of dollars for charity at other universities. Organizers of the first annual GW Dance Marathon said the event will start off small in the Hippodrome next month, with hopes of growing into a larger fundraiser in future years. Organizers […]
