Letter: Unilateral diplomacy

I was very pleased to read Nizar Wattad’s incisive and thought-provoking Feb. 25 Hatchet forum piece (“Israel’s perilous path to war”). Wattad has done the GW community a great service in bringing to light the Palestinian side of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, a side he correctly asserts is too often neglected or glossed over in this […]

Letter: Room cost hidden

I think that the Community Living and Learning Center and the University are being dishonest with students about housing prices for next year. The new housing prices were not posted on the CLLC Web site until Friday afternoon, two days before the rising junior/senior lottery. Most students do not even know that all room prices […]

A-10 Tournament Preview: Davidson proves a model leader

When she’s not raising a $100 at the GW athlete date auctions like she did earlier this month, Lindsey Davidson is raising the level of play on the women’s basketball team. The spunky junior, who struggled earlier this season, is hitting her stride in time for the Atlantic 10 Tournament, which starts Saturday for the […]

Staff editorial: CNN at GW

Bringing CNN’s “Crossfire” political TV talk show to the School of Media and Public Affairs’ Jack Morton Auditorium is a brilliant move on behalf of the show’s producers and University Vice President for Communications Mike Freedman. Having “Crossfire” on campus beginning April 1 Monday through Friday will furnish the University with unprecedented media coverage and […]

Rosey Knows Sports: Olympics stands for Sports, Peace and Inclusion

The showcase event in every Olympics is the Opening Ceremony. This year’s was a true spectacle involving athletes and the 5,000 volunteers who had been working for months to perfect the show, which was the precise mix of art and sport. It was truly remarkable. Led by Lisa Delpy-Neirotti, GW’s director of sports management, 32 […]

Letter: E-voting practices

The right of a student to vote for their leaders by means of a secret ballot is vital to any democracy. Unfortunately, the Joint Election Committee has little respect for students’ privacy. First of all, I had to give my Social Security number in order to vote. This is an unnecessary privacy intrusion. I do […]

Women’s tennis swept by Maryland

The University of Maryland swept the GW women’s tennis team 7-0 in three and a half hours Wednesday at the Mount Vernon Campus. The loss moves GW’s record to 3-5. Maryland overpowered the Colonials in both singles and doubles competition. Nazli Gencsoy and Katarina Stastny played GW’s strongest match at No.2 doubles but suffered an […]

University cuts health plan

The discontinuation of the GW Health Plan Thursday marks the beginning of a downward spiral for small healthcare plans around the country. With increased costs in prescriptions, advertising and medical costs, experts say health plan rates for larger companies will likely increase in the future. Frank Aiosa, a partner in the benefits advising firm Chernoff, […]
