Stories from the September 29, 2003 issue of the GW Hatchet.

Staff Editorial: A risk worth taking

It has been nearly a year since the Board of Trustees, University President Stephen Joel Trachtenberg and donors Ric and Dawn Duques met in the parking lot adjacent to Funger Hall for a “ceremonial” ground breaking for the new business school – but the ceremony was premature. The administration soon realized after the ground-breaking in […]

Breasts and American History

Breasts have been the topic of men’s poker nights and women’s slumber parties for as long as anyone can remember. But taking a look back at some female American icons from the last century, it seems tastes and dream bodies change faster than Christina Aguilera’s hair color. Before the 1920s, corsets and crazy masses of […]

Column: Republicans lack counteroffensive

After enduring yet another painful episode of the campus liberal love-fest – otherwise known as “Crossfire” – this past week, it became utterly clear to me that the Democrats have launched another masterful and typically ruthless political attack against President George W. Bush. What’s even more appalling is the fact that Republicans have yet to […]

Letters to The Editor

A lesson from 9/11 Gary Livacari’s Sept. 22 article (“GW above the ideological fray,” p. 5) is a testament to the efforts of GW to honor the victims and heroes of September 11 with respect and solidarity. In addition, we sought to remind our campus and community of the horrendous effects of terrorism and demonstrate […]

Staff Editorial: Maximize learning opportunities

Students are becoming increasingly discontent with the technology in classrooms on two fronts. It is a mix between professor ineptitude and malfunctioning equipment with slow technical assistance. First, professors in high-tech rooms should go out of their way to prepare to use the costly equipment, or else it is money poorly spent. One ceiling projector […]

Column: SJT and the hurricane conspiracy

It’s been ten days since Hurricane Isabel roared into Washington like … a glorified rainstorm with some gusty winds. I do not want to have to remind anyone of that traumatic Thursday when the world stopped, but it’s my job to report the facts. And the fact is that your president and mine, Stephen Joel […]

Women’s soccer extends best start in team history

The GW women’s soccer team weathered a flurry of offensive pressure early in the second half and got a goal from senior Kim Warner to beat visiting Creighton University Sunday, 1-0. The victory came on the heels of a scoreless double overtime draw to Richmond on Friday in the Colonials’ first conference game of the […]

Atlantic 10 moves toward expansion

The Atlantic 10 will likely invite two or three schools to join the conference within the next several weeks, GW officials told The Hatchet last week. With the Big East reportedly set to extend invitations to four Conference USA schools, the A-10 will look to act quickly once the Big East announces a decision. “It’s […]

Johannsson leads men to second win

The GW men’s soccer team rallied behind two goals and one assist from senior Arnar Johannsson to defeat Towson University Saturday, 4-1. It was the Colonials’ second victory of the year, with both wins coming at the Mount Vernon Athletic Complex. After a slow start to his team’s season, GW head coach George Lidster said […]

Colonials run well in the mud

The intense rain and wind from Hurricane Isabel turned the cross country course in Centreville, Va., into a giant mudslide last week. But area teams spent the week training on the wet, slippery terrain and it showed at last weekend’s GW Invitational. The host Colonials ended with top five finishes from both its teams – […]
