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.

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

But no, the difference I notice […]

The institute will sponsor conferences, retreats, awards and continuing education programs, GWISH Program Manager Renee Bergen said.

Letter to the Editor: Elitist justice

I am writing to express my outrage at the elitist snobbery expressed two weeks straight on The Hatchet’s opinion page. Senior Ashly Richards wrote on April 5 (“Police harass students in bar busts”) that the “8,000” perverts in the Aston area are “allowed to expose themselves” while underage drinkers are “harassed.” On April 12, Justin […]

McShay was 25 years old and had worked for the University since 1994. Doctors had treated McShay for a heart murmur since he was born. Relatives said he did not like to talk […]
