GW looks to out-rebound Marshall

If the Colonials are going to be successful against a bigger, slower Marshall University team, Karl Hobbs said they must grab six more rebounds and use their speed to tire the Thundering Herd at the NABC Classic at Rupp Arena. Heading into this weekend with just eight scholarship players, Hobbs now faces another possible setback: […]

Staff Editorial: Who’s who?

Identification fraud is a fast growing, lucrative crime that costs billions of dollars annually and aids criminals in more than just stealing money. All 19 of the Sept. 11 hijackers assumed multiple identities and used fraudulently obtained identification. The current patchwork system for establishing someone’s identity is made up of measures never intended to serve […]

Rotten metaphor brings pain to dark comedy

Frank Sangster may be the perfect dentist. He’s charming, friendly and is more than a little liberal with the nitrous oxide. With his firmly established practice and oncoming wedding, it seems that everything in his life is perfect, and yet somehow his life’s gleaming exterior conceals a dark, rotten core. With a predictable plot and […]

E-mail invasion

E-mail users at GW and worldwide are often confronted by a common occurrence – being spammed. It’s not a barrage of the notorious sandwich meat but those notorious junk messages that clog in-boxes. Nightclub specials, pornographic links, credit card offers and questionable legal advice are all typical kinds of spam. GW Information Systems and Services […]

We’ll do the town.” The dreaded dad weekend. What […]

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 […]
