GU wins Crew Classic; Colonials place fourth

Cross-town rival Georgetown soundly defeated GW’s men’s and women’s crew teams and every other crew team at the GW Invitational Crew Classic on the Potomac River Saturday afternoon. The Hoya men won the Gilbert H. Hood Jr. Trophy for compiling 73 team points, two points more than second-place United States Naval Academy. GW’s men finished […]

Eating their vegetables

The sporadic outbreaks of mad cow disease have caused debate around the world on whether people should strike meat from their diets. For many GW students this concern is not a recent phenomenon because they decided years ago to go vegetarian. Some students said they stopped eating meat and formed healthier eating habits. “I gave […]

Colonials baseball takes two from flyers

The GW baseball team won Sunday’s rubber match as the Colonials took two of three games from third-place Dayton last weekend. GW (22-14, 8-4 Atlantic 10) improved its home-conference record to 5-1 as the team heads to next Friday’s huge doubleheader at Temple. The first-place Owls hold an 8-1 conference mark. “(The wins) put us […]

Men’s tennis finishes fourth

The GW men’s tennis team ended its season with a fourth-place finish at the Atlantic 10 Championships Saturday in Pittsburgh after losing a match for third place 4-3 to Xavier. In eerily similar fashion, the team lost 4-3 to Xavier March 31 in a match held at Duquesne, the site of the A-10 Championships. St. […]

Staff Editorial: Party pardon

Recent charges levied against the Delta Tau Delta fraternity for breaking alcohol policies at a February party demonstrate serious failures of fraternity self-governance and overly lenient University enforcement in handling groups that break the law. Delta Tau Delta mismanaged a party for its president, Bob Simon, during his Student Association presidential campaign – a party […]

Letter to the Editor: Auto etiquette

Is Alyssa Haynes joking in “GW’s traffic woes” (April 9, p. 4)? Does she actually think the city of Washington, D.C., is going to close H Street between 23rd and 21st Streets for GW students? The streets of D.C. were here long before the University set up shop. The streets are for the cars, not […]

Column: Spring fever claims new victim

Pardon me while I wallow in my own emotional and motivational filth. I am really not that mature. You would want to think that over the last three years of college I would have matured into this presentable young man that parents would want their daughters to bring home. But no, the difference I notice […]

Letter to the Editor: Columbian calamity

I saw The Hatchet’s story in Thursday’s issue based in part on two telephone interviews with a reporter (“Internet confuses GW applicant process,” April 12, p. 1). While I cannot quibble with the overall message – that we have not done as well as we should – a couple of things got lost in the […]
