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

Living and Learning communities become more diverse

Most GW students long-ago trashed the idea of finding a townhouse near campus at a reasonable price, but for about 50 students, D.C. real estate will not be a problem. These students will take part in one of eight self-created programs while living in the Community Living and Learning Center’s Scholars Village townhouses on F […]

U-Wire Archive – Fall 2001 (Sept-Oct)

Critics skeptical of Senate-mandated security measures in airports<!– –> Posted 10:00 p.m. Oct. 22 In a rare demonstration of bipartisan solidarity, the Senate Oct. 11 unanimously passed legislation strengthening the safety of the country’s air transport system.

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 […]
