Locked out

During the weekend of the IMF-turned-anti-war protests, the GW guest policy was tightened to keep out visitors. Non-GW students were prohibited from entering all residence halls, and all GW students signed in for visits even in normally unmanned buildings. To tighten security at residence halls such as New Hall and Munson Hall, where GW has […]

Sports: Back in the game?

Junior Kacey Coyne, once a nationally-ranked gymnast, underwent surgery in July following a fall off a vault that fractured her already-damaged spine. Surgery had been in the back of Coyne’s mind long before the accident, which occurred at a meet during her sophomore season. Coyne suffers from a rare case of scoliosis in which her […]

FORUM: Educate to defeat terror

Almost a month ago, the World Trade Center was destroyed by vicious acts of terrorism.

The win proved the Colonials, who last year finished fourth after a heartbreaking loss to Xavier in last year’s A-10 […]

Beyond the Beltway: Cartoons pioneer gays on TV

(U-WIRE) LOS ANGELES – You may think this is a recent phenomenon that the slow arrival of homosexuality onto the TV landscape began when Roseanne made out with a chick from Central Park West. But it started way earlier than that. Or maybe I read a lot into what I watched as a kid, like […]

Letter to the Editor: Proper policy

Reading The Hatchet, I was struck by the audacity of a comment in a student’s letter (“Shift policy?” Oct. 4 , p. 4). She wrote, “What about the U.S. supported terrorism in the Middle East … the F-16s reigning down on the West Bank and Gaza; the policies that provoke these actions?” I viewed this […]
