Planning for Spring Break

The weather is getting slightly warmer. The sun is beginning to stay out a little longer. And there is a somewhat restless feeling on campus. This can only mean one thing: Spring Break is near. Whether going home or jaunting off to another country or part of America, GW students are anticipating the impending week […]

Column: What about the Afghans?

When U2 performed during the halftime show of this year’s Super Bowl, my eyes welled up with tears, especially when the names of the victims of Sept. 11 were projected onto a giant screen stretching into the sky. In some strange way, halftime seemed natural and even necessary, like one big national exhalation of relief. […]

Spotlight: A shuttle ride away

Mount Vernon College holds the tradition of schooling smart and talented women. Hope Diamond owner Evelyn Walsh McLean, Radcliffe College President Ada Louise Comstock and Elizabeth Harris, co-founder of Ms. Magazine, are only a few among a list of leading alumnae. “Friends” star Courtney Cox even attended for a year before pursuing her acting career. […]

Inside Our Pages: Tuition no secret matter

The Hatchet reported last Thursday that GW would propose a 4.9 percent tuition increase to the Board of Trustees the next day. Since the question has come up in conversation with numerous administrators, I’d like to clarify why we found it important to report this news as soon as we had received it. Newspapers function […]

Temple loss typifies losing streak

Saturday’s home loss against Temple exemplified what has gone wrong for the Colonials during their current seven-game losing streak. GW displayed streaky shooting and sloppy passing in the most recent loss and dug themselves into a large first-half hole. For the seventh straight game, poor first-half shooting and turnovers cost the Colonials as they fell […]

Situation worsens as Colonials drop seventh straight

The Colonials gave ESPN viewers and the Smith Center crowd of more than 3,000 little to get excited about on Saturday as the team fell to Temple 80-58. The loss extended GW’s losing streak to seven during its first and likely only national television appearance this year. Coach Karl Hobbs’ team connected on less than […]

Sports: Colonial women prove their depth

Even with their three seemingly impossible last-second comebacks, untimely injuries are teaching GW it is not an invincible team. Last month, freshman Anna Montanana replaced senior Elena Vishniakova after a torn ACL ended the forward’s season. Now, Montanana is on the bench nursing a strained knee that has been a reoccurring problem all season and […]

Faces of Disappointment

Losing games hasn’t helped Hobbs’ efforts to draw students to the Smith Center, but the student section was filled for Saturday’s home loss to Temple, where students offered their candid thoughts on the coach and his team. Early success made head coach Karl Hobbs’ job more difficult. Ten wins, a couple successful comebacks and one […]

Men’s tennis drops two

The GW men’s tennis team dropped two early-season matches to Atlantic 10 foe Richmond Friday and to the University of Virginia Saturday, evening its record to 4-4 on the season. The men dropped their final match of the weekend Saturday to the Virginia Cavaliers 6-1, as Matt Treadgold posted GW’s only win, at No.3 singles. […]
