V-Day Guide: Where did all the cowgirls go?

There is one word for the girls Lauren Silva describes: shallow. While those girls are out stuffing their push-up bras and trying to pretend they have better things to do than AOL Instant Messenger, thoughtful guys like me are trying to hold on to that last bastion of hope that not all girls at Dream […]

GW suspends contract with cap company

GW suspended its contract with popular sportswear company New Era Monday after students brought to light accusations of unfair labor practices. The Progressive Student Union led a protest Monday against New Era Cap Co., which carried the GW logo on caps in the GW Bookstore. In addition to its ties the University, New Era is […]

V-Day Guide: They’re out partying

I’d like to see Sarah Jessica Parker in a steel cage match with Vince Vaughn. I give it about five seconds before the so-called “swinger” is screaming for mercy and “Carrie” is cleaning the blood off her alligator-skin Mohink Blanc pumps. That is to say, Trevor Martin, and all of your kind, you think you […]

Greek policies split groups

While the Greek-letter system at GW remains largely segregated, fraternity and sorority members explained that the differences between black and white organizations lie not in skin color but tradition and custom. “(Black organizations) were founded in a time that wasn’t conducive to African Americans, and that’s why we take our organizations so seriously, because we […]

V-Day Guide: Mixing it up on Valentine’s Day

Hey fellas, if your girl wants to get buck wild, then go back and hit her up style. Thursday is Valentine’s Day and rather than bore you with my take on the holiday (see the Feb.12, 2001 Hatchet), I’ve decided to offer a little practical advice to the lucky ones who have a Valentine, but […]

V-Day Guide: Dating a cadaver

With Valentine’s Day here and no one to call my own for the 18th year in a row, I have decided that it is high time I change my plan of attack. Buying myself boxes of chocolate has lost its charm, and letters from secret admirers don’t titillate when they arrive in your own handwriting. […]

GW shows close Enron link

Although several major news organizations have included a teaching stint at GW in former Enron Corp. CEO Kenneth Lay’s background, no record of him as a professor exists at the University. At least one GW alumnus has authentic ties to the scandal. Leslie Caldwell, who earned her law degree at GW, is lead prosecutor in […]

WEB EXCLUSIVE: Xavier hands GW eighth-straight loss

Posted 10:30 a.m. Feb. 15 – Once again, an opponent’s scoring run burnt GW as the visiting Colonials fell 89-75 Thursday night to Xavier. Xavier started the second half with a 13-4 run to expand a halftime lead to 15. GW cut the lead to seven midway through the second half, but again Xavier (18-4 […]

Britney Spears goes slutty for debut film

Disclaimer (the rant): Britney Spears: she’s not a girl, not yet a woman. What is she then? In her new movie Crossroads (Paramount) she’s the town whore. Keep in mind, we’re not members of the religious right, or a group of anti-Hollywood activists. We’re 20-year-old college males, and we like Britney. We really like Britney. […]
