Volume 99, Issue 9

Stories from the August 25, 2002 issue of the GW Hatchet.

Letter:Invasive article

I read the article regarding the two leaders dismissed from CI, as well as the column written by Kate Stepan (July 8). Although I appreciate the Hatchet’s goal to communicate news to students, I feel the article exploited two members of our community. Throughout the story the students were disrespected and spoken of more like […]

Wesley Snipes hits the mat

What happened to Wesley Snipes? We know he’s no A-list actor, more a stand-in for roles turned down by Denzel Washington, but in his new movie Undisputed, Snipes (Blade and Blade II) sinks to new lows delivering a painfully contrived performance. This is not the Snipes we saw in New Jack City or White Men […]

GW hires new coaches

Former men’s novice rowing coach Matt Boyle was promoted to varsity men’s head coach Aug. 9 after leading the Colonials to one of their most successful seasons in history last spring. The team advanced to the finals of both the San Diego Crew Classic and the Dad Veils and also won the A-10 Invitational Title. […]

This Old Apartment

Neil Conway can always tell when school is about to start by the influx of parents and students in his hardware store just off Dupont Circle. Most are looking for basic tools to fix things or keep around residence hall rooms and apartments, but some return for friendly personal advice about common home ailments. District […]

Basketball releases non-conference schedule

Both the men’s and women’s basketball teams recently released their non-conference schedules, which begin in late November and continue until the start of Atlantic 10 conference play in early January. The men’s schedule is highlighted by the team’s season opener at the University of Connecticut on Nov. 25. Second-year head coach Karl Hobbs will return […]

Summer Scrapbook

June 1, New Haven, Conn. – Aug. 3, San Francisco, Calif. Wake up at 5:30 a.m., eat, dress in spandex and ride. Armed with a map of the day’s route, water, food and spare tires, juniors Steve Carlson and Evan Johnson biked 70 miles a day – before stopping for lunch. This describes an average […]

GW Bookstore competes with online retailers

While buying books for classes once entailed hours in line at the GW bookstore to buy textbooks at University prices, an increasing amount of students said they are opting to buy their books online after comparison shopping at about a dozen Web sites. With classes a week away, many students on campus and at home […]

Staff editorial:Print wisely

There is no use in attempting to persuade GW not to implement the 7-cents-per-page printing fee in University computer labs. The fee is here to stay. Students must accept this as part of going to a school that charges every student a mandatory $225 for the use of the Health and Wellness Center, but asks […]

ISS works to speed access

Persistent problems with GW Web sites, slow Webmail and old University computers could be ending soon, once an Information Systems and Services plan to update hardware and software campus-wide is complete. GW Chief Information Officer David Swartz said GW has a short and long-term plan to alleviate problems with e-mail and consolidate the GW Web […]

Staff editorial:Giving George a face lift

Students cannot help but be proud of the surface additions made to GW over the summer. University officials are obviously focusing on improving the aesthetics of the campus and responding to student requests in some areas of service, but should realize that many of these improvements are only skin-deep. Impressive new buildings, J Street renovations […]
