Op-Ed: Three cheers for UNC – and intellectual inquiry

As a former Assistant Secretary of State for South Asian Affairs in the Clinton Administration (1997-2001), and now a member of the Elliott School faculty, I believe the University of North Carolina should be congratulated for its decision to ask its incoming freshman to read Approaching the Qur’an: The Early Revelations – and for standing […]

Men’s basketball loses players

The GW men’s basketball team will start the season with only four scholarship players with NCAA playing experience and may also be without one of its recruits, an unlucky turn of events for a program that drew one of the best recruiting classes in recent school history this year. Sophomore forward Tamal Forchion, an expected […]

Women’s soccer earns split in opening weekend

The GW women’s soccer team opened the season splitting two games at the University of Central Florida Invitational this weekend. The Colonials lost the final game to UCF 1-0 Sunday after beating Jacksonville University 2-1 Friday. Kim Warner, who led GW with eight goals last season, scored both of the team’s goals against Jacksonville. UCF […]

Johannsson leads men’s soccer in winning weekend

Arnar Johannsson scored four goals to lead the GW men’s soccer team over the Howard Bison 4-0 in the second round of the D.C. College Cup Sunday. The Colonials, who beat Georgetown in their regular-season opener Friday, finished the tournament in second place behind host American University. GW (2-0) and American (2-0) each won both […]

Inside our pages: Police arrests force newspaper decisions

I was going to write about all the changes readers will notice in The Hatchet this year. That was before I got a call at midnight Thursday night with the news that police were arresting students at local bar Marshall’s. This bust was only the beginning of a deluge of arrests over the weekend, as […]

Volleyball wins two in opener

The GW volleyball team won two out of its first three games, defeating University of Maryland Baltimore County and Binghamton University at the Maryland Invitational Volleyball Tournament this weekend. Despite a loss in their season-opener to host Maryland (3-0), the two wins gave the Colonials (2-1) a winning record for the first time since the […]

Column: Complaining from the lap of luxury

I read a story last week about the new residence hall in the Elliott School of International Affairs. The rooms are immaculate, they might be some of the best in the entire country and the views, which include sights of the memorials and the capitol, are most likely the best out of any dorm in […]

GW hosts mayoral debate

Mayor Anthony Williams will be on campus for a primary campaign debate Wednesday in the final days of one of the strangest campaigns the District has ever seen. The Student Association will host the debate and panel discussion with local journalists featuring the six Democratic mayoral candidates in the Marvin Center Betts Theatre at 7:30 […]

Op-Ed: Searching for youth in politics

Our Founding Fathers dreamed of a political system that assured every man a voice in his government. However, poor people, women, African-Americans and young adults were left out of that version of the “dream.” Two-hundred and twenty-six years later, after the ratification of the 14th, 15th, 19th, and 26th Amendments, every person male or female, […]

J Street to add more seating

A construction team is busily “putting finishing touches” on an enclosed J Street patio officials said should combat the problem of “overcrowding” during busy dining hours. The $1.2 million project is set for completion by mid-October, about a month after the opening was first anticipated. The 1,440 square foot patio, which previously included some outdoor […]
