Staff Editorial: Services rendered?

Students in City Hall complain they are not receiving the services they pay for. And their complaints have merit. Repeated promises to wire the building for internet access went unfulfilled until Tuesday, and assurances that GW will upgrade laundry facilities are still empty words. The University should act swiftly to fix the problems in City […]

Letter to the Editor: Insulting mistakes

I have been an avid reader of The Hatchet since my freshman year and have never been so appalled at The Hatchet’s reporting of an event as I was at the coverage of the First Annual Class Council Charity Ball in “Students dance for charity” (Nov. 12, p. 7). The Class Council Charity Ball raised […]

Staff Editorial: Missing the point

GW students are fond saying what an asset living in D.C. is for their education. The University plays up the D.C. angle, too. But when students are given the opportunity to take advantage of D.C.’s special qualities, few do. The Elliot School of International Affairs sponsors lectures with renowned policy makers and famous political figures […]

Letter to the Editor: Opening up HWC

I believe the timing of Mr. Dardeck’s Nov. 12 letter (“BZA Bias at HWC”) could not be better. I agree that restrictions imposed on the use of the Health and Wellness Center are unreasonable. These conditions were created prior to construction of the facility because the D.C. Board of Zoning Adjustment believed allowing membership to […]

As I See It: Fraternities and fees – what a year for dissent at GW

GW students are fond saying what an asset living in D.C. is for their education. The University plays up the D.C. angle, too. But when students are given the opportunity to take advantage of D.C.’s special qualities, few do. The Elliot School of International Affairs sponsors lectures with renowned policy makers and famous political figures […]

Letter to the Editor: Left waiting

At the risk of sounding redundant, I am not going to retell any of my personal 4-RIDE disappointments. However, the article in which University Police Department Director Dolores Stafford states that she has received no complaints about 4-RIDE points to the obvious. No one can complain if no one knows where their complaints will be […]

Letter to the Editor: City Hell?

I pay $7,700 to live in my City Hall Room – nearly $1,000 more than other similarly sized rooms in different residence halls. I do not take this additional cost lightly, especially when the Community Living and Learning Center essentially made it the only housing option open to me. For that extra $1,000, I have […]

Letter to the Editor: Disrespected vets

On the morning of Nov. 11, my uncle and his friends were in town to commemorate Veterans Day, and they visited the Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial after midnight. Many veterans prefer to visit this memorial at night so they can avoid tourists have solitude to pay their respects. On a morning like Nov. 11, visiting the […]
