Burying the Hatchet

My friend recently started seriously dating a guy at GW. Now every time I call her to get together she is canceling on me for him. I don’t know if I should say anything because I don’t want to sound like the jealous friend, but her actions are really beginning to hurt me. Should I […]

The Hatchet’s London correspondant checks out Kate Winslet

Staff editorial: Closing the gap

Minorities comprise 16 percent of GW’s faculty, while 23 percent of its undergraduates are Asian, Latino or black. While this gap remains high because of many variables, GW officials say they are working hard to bridge it.

Letter: Miserly printing

Where is our tuition going? This is probably the most common question on campus, and once again I have to propose it to University President Stephen Joel Trachtenberg. Specifically, I want to know about the computer labs throughout campus. Our wonderful campus administrators have placed restrictions on us concerning our paper usage. They seek to […]
