Stories from the November 29, 2001 issue of the GW Hatchet.

Staff Editorial: Signed off

GW is supposed to foster an environment where curious minds quench their thirst for knowledge. The freedom to learn what one wants is a key component of the American higher education system. GW’s Graduate School of Education and Human Development offers two classes teaching students American Sign Language. Of the University’s undergraduate and graduate population, […]

Hilarium lacks

Saturday night, Lafayette Hall, 12 a.m.: A group of students on the seventh floor called the new party board game called “Hilarium” lame. Victims asked for a restraining order and for the game to be removed from production. Suspect was described as a major toy and game manufacturer named Mattel. Open Case. Hilarium is similar […]

Staff editorial: Relief denied

Revised figures now show that about 3,800 people died in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, many of whom were gay. But according to The Washington Post, the gay and lesbian partners of victims will not receive any of the billions of dollars available from relief organizations and the federal government. Unfortunately, because of current laws, […]

As I See It: SA wastes money, again

The leaves are falling from the trees, and you know what that means – the Student Association election season is coming your way.

DC Diary: Hair-raising hike to Adams Morgan

Adams Morgan Tuesday, Sept. 23 8 a.m. “I need to find a Dominican hair salon.” When I uttered this statement, I more or less got the same reactions: a blank expression, followed by an inquisitive look and the question: “What’s so different about a Dominican salon?” No one understood that my type of hair needs […]

Op-Ed: New fee to help students

The Hatchet article “RHA passes mandatory fee” (Nov. 15, p. 1) horribly misrepresents the action taken by the Residence Hall Association pertaining to the collection of hall dues. What the writer of this story was told by the RHA but chose to clearly misrepresent is the exploratory status of this issue. This resolution is merely […]

Braving the bar scene

Restaurants that have a vibrant night scene and allow customers under 21 are more trouble than they are worth for managers and owners, area restaurant owners said. “We have to be babysitters,” said Mo Bousane, partial owner and manager of Tequila Grill at 1990 K St. “If something happens to a kid, I’m responsible.” Many […]

Letter to the Editor: GTAs get great deal

I wish to comment on the article, “TAs balance busy schedule, low pay” (Nov. 19, p. 6). The article gave the impression that graduate teaching assistants normally receive full tuition and a stipend of about $5,000 a semester. Although GTA support packages vary in size, those in the Columbian College of Arts and Sciences most […]
