Staff editorial: Implement security

While one has to wonder why campus officials did not think of it sooner, University Police and the Music Department have agreed on a logical plan to combat a recent rash of instrument thefts. Since administrators say cost is not an issue in installing new equipment – which could include security cameras and GWorld card […]

Beyond GW

Former students linked to Sept. 11 attacks Two former California State University-Sacramento students were charged last week with aiding the suspected 20th hijacker Zacarias Moussaoui enter the United States before the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. The two former students, Sejarahtul Dursina and her husband, Yazid Sufaat, are accused of providing Moussaoui with a fake job […]

Inside our pages: Forthcoming sources yield better reports

As a general rule in life, I’ve learned that people who are open and honest about what they think are generally more trustworthy than ones who are closed and reserved. It is a simple concept but, for one reason or another, one people tend to ignore when reporters call them. When a person’s name is […]

Letters: Cover club sports

Aside from the GW men’s club lacrosse team’s schedule being posted on The Hatchet’s Web site, GW club sports teams are rarely mentioned. While Division I sports are certainly exciting and newsworthy, a large portion of GW’s student population takes part in club sports programs which are also of interest to The Hatchet’s readers.

Letters: Sweet grounds crew

I am writing in order to bring the GW grounds crew to the attention of the student body.

Not only did Greenspan serve as president of an international youth organization, he spent a year between high school and college living […]

Colonials split with nationally ranked Spiders

Head Coach Tom Walter said if anything, Sunday’s rainout of the GW – Richmond contest will give closer Mike O’Connor some extra rest. Other than that, Walter said playing Monday instead of Sunday is neither good nor bad for his team, which will compete for first place in the Atlantic 10 West with the nationally […]

Look out kids, we got Woody, Allen that is

Bodies on bodies, packed tightly under steel and concrete and built on the sweat of the masses. New York is grimy with their remains. It’s a cold city, jarring its inhabitants with constant motion. New York is the epicenter of culture, sometimes cruel but undeniably influential. I’m not from New York, but I wish I […]

Women’s water polo places eighth at Easterns

The eighth-seeded Colonials finished where they started – in the eighth place at this weekend’s Eastern Championships hosted by Princeton University. The GW women’s water polo team notched one win in a tournament that gave its postseason berth to tournament winner Michigan. After losing to first-seeded Michigan 9-2 Friday afternoon, the Colonials ratcheted up their […]

Women going shot for shot with the guys

When picturing a binge drinker, who are the stereotypical candidates? While most think of the fraternity brothers of Animal House or jocks crushing beer cans over their heads, recent research shows females are increasingly hitting the bottle and tapping the keg. A study conducted by the Harvard School of Public Health, published in the American […]
