Stories from the December 10, 2001 issue of the GW Hatchet.

All stressed out

It is 5 a.m. Eyes glazed and stomach churning, panic sets in. Even after staring at an open textbook all night long, it does not seem like it is enough. Finals time – it’s one of the most stressful times of the year, according to most college students. Procrastination, types of testing and exam scheduling […]

BBC panelists broadcast from MPA building

The 150 people who filled the Jack Morton Auditorium Friday to hear Newt Gingrich as a guest on a BBC broadcast were surprised to find former presidential Chief of Staff Bill Kristol discussing terrorism instead. Producers of BBC show “Any Questions” added Kristol to the panel after Gingrich canceled Tuesday, producer Lisa Jenkinson said. She […]

Covering campus in time of change

This has certainly been a busy time to head any publication. But to be at the heart of the activity during such historic times is something for which there is no preparation. Considering the number of GW students from the New York area, it is surprising that none lost a parent in the Sept. 11 […]

Tomei tells stories from the Bedroom

Usually, actors spend weeks, even months, developing a character. But when Academy Award-winning actress Marisa Tomei took a part in the independent film In the Bedroom, she found herself working on a slightly shorter schedule.

Somers Hall nears completion

Mount Vernon Campus officials expect the Somers Hall addition to be complete in time to house 41 students returning from a study abroad program next semester.

But then again, you already know that from personal experience, so I’ll simply mention the […]

Ex-Ghostbuster Ramis rates Hollywood’s comedic newcomers

Harold Ramis may be best known for his infamous portrayal of Dr. Egon Spangler in the Ghostbusters films, but he also wrote for such comedic films as Animal House and Groundhog Day. It would seem that a veteran of this caliber is above association with untested newbies in the entertainment industry. But while working on […]

Manouch asks GW officials for campus home

The Student Association vocalized student support to bring Manouchehr Nava’s hot dog vending business on campus with a resolution last week. Nava, popularly known among students as “Manouch,” said he is currently approaching the University about selling food late at night on campus. “It’s just a simple thing to allow Manouch to vend on campus,” […]

Features: Fun during finals

Wild parties, day trips to different states, dinners in Georgetown and nights at the movies – all before finals. According to many students reading week does not just mean late nights poring over books. Sophomore Colleen King said she does not like to study during reading week. “Reading week in the biggest party time during […]
