Staff editorial: We’re with Phil

On Wednesday students will select their next Student Association president and executive vice president, among other positions.

Students irked by pricey No Doubt tickets

Students said they are disappointed with the price and low number of GW tickets for the April 26 No Doubt concert at the Smith Center. The Program Board brought the act to campus in coordination with local promoter IMP, owner of the 9:30 Club. The concert is part of a national tour by No Doubt […]

Forum: Israel’s perilous path to war

It seems like everything we Americans accept regarding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict directly opposes what the rest of the world thinks. When Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon criticizes Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, President George W. Bush immediately agrees. This, despite Sharon’s contradictory assertions that Arafat is both “extremely dangerous” and “irrelevant.” In a Jan. 29 press […]

Letter: Greek split response

I have closely followed the responses to The Hatchet’s Feb. 14 article (“Greek policies split groups.”) I must respond to Adam Banner’s Feb. 21 letter, which claims the NAACP “apologized for causing a disturbance” in our protest of Sigma Nu’s choice to fly the Confederate Flag outside of their house. Banner has been misinformed. The […]

Dedicated to experimentation and diversity in music, the Kronos Quartet continued its push for innovation with a Thursday night performance at Lisner Auditorium. The world-renowned string quartet group performed pieces from its new portfolio. With no stereotype befitting its style, Kronos members grabbed the audience with their repertoire of musical arrangements, utilizing the elements of […]

Officials expect sharp admissions rate decrease

Despite a record number of freshman applications this year, GW officials said the academic profiles of incoming students will remain the same. Vice President of Student and Academic Support Services Robert Chernak said he does not anticipate an increase or decrease of 10 points in SAT scores from last year’s average of 1,240. Chernak said […]

Letter: Al-Zaabi mistakes

I am deeply concerned about numerous and serious inaccuracies in The Hatchet’s Feb. 19 article (“GW links to Al-Zaabi expand”). As a person interviewed for the article, I would like to correct some of the major inaccuracies. In the first place, the inside headline (“GW sees trend of UAE, Saudi student failing”) on page 11 […]
