Sports: Colonials end 10-game losing streak

Karl Hobbs and the Colonials used their home finale to end the team’s 10-game losing streak with a win over Richmond, giving Hobbs a chance to address his fans on a positive note. The win, which came two days after the team’s worst loss of the season to Dayton, does not save GW from its […]

Staff editorial: No vote, no complaint

Abstaining from voting in this Wednesday’s Student Association election means giving up the right to complain about student government. Without a healthy voter turnout, candidates have a difficult time gauging what students expect from their leaders. In The Hatchet’s Feb. 25 Weekly Web Poll, 53 percent of 180 respondents indicated they plan not to vote. […]

PB Executive Chair candidates

Josh Bhatti Program Board Executive Chair candidate Josh Bhatti said there is plenty of room for improvements in the PB and he wants to program events that students will universally enjoy. “The best thing about doing concerts is you see the students happy and bring some fun to campus. I want to see that continue,” […]

UMass snaps women’s win streak

GW had to beat just one more team to remain undefeated in conference play and enter next week’s Atlantic 10 Championship as the only team without a blemish on its conference record. But the Colonial women lost to UMass Sunday at the Mullins Center 62-53, to finish with a 15-1 conference record and ending a […]

Forum: Arafat chooses war, not peace

The time has come for Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat to wake up. He has been hitting the snooze button on his alarm clock for far too long. Now is his last chance to act as the true leader of his people using diplomacy rather than violence to achieve Palestinian aspirations of statehood. Sadly, it […]

Inside Our Pages: Student uproar spurs healthy dialogue

I have been pleasantly surprised by the feedback students have given on a story about Greek-letter diversity on campus. Much of the feedback has been positive, pointing out that raising the issue is a good first step to addressing possible improvements. But there are others who are outraged by comments in the story they deemed […]

Baseball drops two in Tulane series

After ending Tulane’s five-game winning streak with a 9-7 win to start the series, GW dropped two final games at Turchin Field. Jake Wald hit his first homerun of the season in the rubber match, a 7-4 loss, and put GW in positionto tie late in the game. Tough Tulane pitching ended the Colonials hopes […]

Letter: Foreign students

How disappointed I was to read your unfortunately-titled Feb. 19 article (“Foreign students evade INS”), which contained so many inaccuracies. I never stated that there are “lax” requirements for tracking students; in fact, the requirements are stringent with respect to regularly responsibilities of non-immigrant students. It is inaccurate to say that “the current system does […]

Swimming takes third, fifth in Atlantic 10 Championships

The GW women swimming and diving team placed third in the Atlantic 10 Championships with a 459 this weekend in Buffalo, N.Y. Richmond won the meet (752), followed by St. Bonaventure (584). For Richmond, the win marks the first-ever A-10 title in any sport, as this is the Spider’s first year in the conference. The […]

Letter: Theology on Tap’s actual message

I would like to clarify the scope and purpose of my talk at “Theology on Tap” covered in the Feb. 21 issue of The Hatchet (“Students talk religion at Lulu’s,” p. 1). Theology on Tap is a program intended for young adults over the age of 21. The program does not promote the consumption of […]
