Hatchet’s big picture emphasizes photography

The main focus of The Hatchet is and always will be gathering and reporting the news, but Grant Wernick wants to make the package it comes in as appealing as possible. While photography has almost always been a part of The Hatchet’s pages, Wernick, this year’s photo editor, has overseen changes that bring art to […]

Spotlight: Rescue 4-6111

In the corner of the Marvin Center parking garage is a gray door outlined with orange paint. Parked outside the door are five bicycles with book bags and helmets hanging from them. The door’s sign also is outlined in orange. It reads in bold letters: EMERG. “These are not book bags,” senior David Rand points […]

All GW wants for Christmas: $70 million

GW is “playing catch-up” with universities across the nation by trying to lure more gifts from alumni, corporations and foundations. The current fundraising total for GW is significantly below those of rival schools and may be contributing to high tuition costs for students. GW has raised 86 percent of its $500 million fundraising goal, or […]

Hatchet Memories

Please find enclosed an original print from November of 1968 for your consideration for inclusion in Hatchet memorabilia. I took the photo and it was published in one of the November 1968 editions of The Hatchet. I was a staff photographer in 1968 and photography editor in 1969 and 1970. I was also a member […]

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. Instead of the usual preparation time, Tomei told The Hatchet during a phone interview, first-time writer/director Todd Field “gave me […]

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. The students, who are studying mostly in Europe, agreed to go abroad this fall, in part because the residence hall addition was not finished and GW lacked other campus […]

Time ticks on a different kind of deadline for Hatchet

Greetings from Foggy Bottom. I was planning to write about the importance of deadlines and how the experience of producing a student newspaper was both the best and worst experience for college students in learning the value of meeting deadlines. But then again, you already know that from personal experience, so I’ll simply mention the […]
