WEB EXCLUSIVE: Election results delayed

Posted 6 a.m. March 1 Winners for the Student Association, Program Board and Marvin Center Governing Board elections will be announced at 10 a.m. Friday, election officials said at about 4 a.m. after hours of delays counting paper ballots. Expectations for a shorter vote-count process than recent years were dashed as Joint Elections Committee members […]

Staff editorial: Housing glitch

While GW’s first online housing lottery went off without catastrophe, Housing Services and the Community Living and Learning Center should have been better prepared to handle glitches that did occur. Students went most of the day without knowing which rooms were being taken, and at least a handful of students were booked to rooms that […]

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 […]
