What to do at GWU

Welcome to college: 15 hours a week of class, maybe another 12 for a job and then a wild nirvana of free time that most incoming freshmen can barely imagine. It’s great at first, but then the shock wears off and most people find themselves asking, “What am I going to do for the next […]

The Classroom, The Campus, The City

Soon after incoming freshmen leave Colonial Inauguration, they will know GCRs from CRNs, and ESIA from SMPA. But while the CI staff and advisers provide information and assistance, it is just a student, the computer and a race against time during course registration on the last day of CI. However, there is good news. Everyone […]

Reviews: Hollywood Homicide

L.A. is a place that scares me.

Joe Gavilan (Harrison Ford) is the hard-nosed […]

A heart to ‘Hart’ with the SA president

Rising junior Kris Hart won the Student Association presidency and became the leading voice for GW’s student body following a narrow election in March. The SA functions as the student government, providing resources for students, allocating money to student organizations, sponsoring events and catering to students’ needs.

GW vs. D.C.: a look at the on-going conflict

GW and the District are engaged in a court battle over how much the University can build and how many students it needs to house. This story is The Hatchet’s try to give […]

D.C. offers job variety

Unlike students on most college campuses, GW freshmen have the opportunity to build their resumes from the start – by working at one of hundreds of revered organizations in the nation’s capital. GW students intern and work for law firms, senators on Capitol Hill, magazines and newspapers and non-profit agencies, among other places of employment. […]
