Battle of the Sexes

Q: I am a heterosexual male, but I find myself oddly attracted to celebrities like George Clooney. What does finding another man attractive mean? Does this mean that I am gay? –Confused Chick: It’s perfectly OK to find someone of the same sex attractive. Actually, women have a bisexual arousal pattern, which means we get […]

Column: GW ranks with Yale, finally!

On Sept. 13, a number of GW students and workers joined the thousands of students, workers and their allies converging upon Yale University in a massive demonstration of solidarity with the nearly 4,000 Yale workers who have been on strike since the end of last month. More than 100 demonstrators were arrested for blocking traffic […]

Staff Editorial: Increase Swipe Speed

When GW students swipe their GWorld cards at on-campus food venues such as J Street, the transaction occurs instantly. But at off-campus restaurants such as TGI Friday’s and Au Bon Pain, transactions are far from immediate, and in many cases it takes minutes for a sale to be completed. The advent of Colonial Cash is […]

Column: Presenting the Irony Committee

For the past few years the Student Association has been a bacteria that students choose to watch fester. Doing nothing to excise this bacterium, students have allowed it to grow into the boil on the butt of this campus that it is today. And the growing of this boil, under Kris Hart’s presidency, certainly shows […]

GW In Brief

Washington eatery mocks GW professor, “fat suits” An eating establishment in Washington state recently began requiring customers to sign a liability waiver before eating a new dessert, “the Bulge,” mocking proponents of obesity lawsuits. The waiver is a semi-serious effort by the owners of Seattle’s 5 Spot Diner to protect their business from any sort […]

Column: GW above the ideological fray

During my first three weeks at GW I have encountered many conservative upperclassmen who offered me their warnings of a liberal bias in the classroom. As both a steadfast conservative and an inexperienced student, I have no reason to doubt such conclusions. On the contrary, I hold these upperclassmen with the utmost esteem and veracity. […]

Students party, sleep during four-day weekend

Foggy Bottom emerged relatively unscathed from a storm that left thousands without power as it tore through the East Coast Thursday night, giving students an opportunity to enjoy a four-day weekend. During the days off music blasted from rooms in Thurston Hall and other residence halls while students scoured the floors, still in their pajamas […]


In “Sororities see record interest” (Sept. 18, Web Extra), The Hatchet incorrectly reported that students can choose to visit all eight sororities the first night. Students must visit all sororities. The Panhellenic Association agreed, not voted, last year to refrain from using Townhouse Row for publicity. Sororities have always spent money on recruitment, but increased […]
