Stories from the July 8, 2002 issue of the GW Hatchet.

Staff editorial: Special delivery

The decision by Mail Services officials to centralize package distribution is bad news for students living on campus. The process of getting packages from point A to point B will now definitely take longer and students can expect an extra hassle that will squeeze their already full schedules. The location at 2025 F Street, near […]

Staff editorial: GW’s gonna tell

Students must approach the University’s decision to notify parents about all alcohol offenses maturely, instead of instantly labeling GW a tattletale. Yes, college students have reached the age where parental control is no longer necessary and even unheard of, but they are not absolved from being held accountable for their actions. If a student is […]

Around Campus

New options to join J-Street line up With the addition of three food options at J Street this year, GW’s food service provider Aramark will offer GW students a better variety than before, GW officials said. Aramark Marketing Program Manager Amelia Powell said students will be able to purchase “authentic” Philadelphia cheesesteaks at a new […]

Inside our pages: Problems facing groups should be discussed

If two CI leaders are dismissed from the cabinet and no one hears about it, should a student newspaper run a story about it? This was the question facing the Hatchet staff and legal counsel as summer heat climbed above 90 degrees over the July 4 holiday weekend. With CI five scheduled for the coming […]

Letters to the editor: SJT more than meets the eye

(Christine) Muchanic’s recent letter criticizing President Trachtenberg for his lack of visibility on campus and lack of interest in the student body (“SJT invisible to campus,” June 10) is a perennial complaint that surfaces in The Hatchet. As a fellow alum from the class of 2001, I would like to offer an opposing view. Ms. […]

Letter: Groups poorly portrayed

Anger and disappointment churn inside me as the image of Greek life is consistently tainted by popular culture. Programs such as “Sorority Life,” featuring Sigma Alpha Epsilon Pi, a local women’s group at University of California Davis, and Comedy Central’s “Insomniac” with Dave Attel, featuring a chapter house of Sigma Alpha Epsilon, are examples of […]

Krug murder suspect awaits trial

A former University of Maryland student is being held without bond pending a trial for murdering GW graduate student Daniel Krug in late May. Stephen Burciaga, 21, was arrested June 12 after police found Krug’s computer and other items believed to be stolen from his K Street apartment at Burciaga’s College Park residence, said Captain […]

Column:Keeping the chess club off drugs

The Supreme Court’s recent ruling for mandatory drug testing of public high school students in extracurricular activities is the latest decision in a series of rulings that attacks the Fourth Amendment rights of minors. The ruling is so backwards and counterproductive that one dissenting Supreme Court judge went as far as to call it “perverse,” […]

U-WIRE: SAT to add writing section

(U-WIRE) Hanover, N.H. – College Board trustees voted Thursday to significantly change the SAT with the goal of allowing the test to better measure in-class learning, though officials at Dartmouth College and elsewhere said the alterations would likely hurt as much as help. The revisions call for the addition of an essay question, a more […]

NYCD: Trying on the shoes of Carrie Bradshaw

New York City Saturday, June 15 2:30 p.m. Happy I chose to wear my New Balance sneakers and not a pair of $1,000 Manolo Blahnik heels, my roommate and I ran past the Plaza Hotel to the Skyliner bus idling in front of the Pulitzer Fountain on Fifth Avenue. Nicole and I joined our friends […]
