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 – […]

Volleyball wins A-10 opener

The GW volleyball team opened Atlantic 10 conference play with an impressive 3-0 victory over Duquesne Saturday night at the Smith Center, improving the Colonials’ overall record to 12-2. Freshman Juliene McLaughlin led the GW charge in a breakout game for the rookie. Her statistics were not overly impressive, with 14 kills and a .333 […]

From corsets to the pushup bra

Women have a wide range of choices when it comes to undergarments. The adhesive, skin-molded, shock absorbent, 18-hour, clear strap, pushup gel bra; wonder; fantasy bras and even the “smart bra” are just a few choices found around the world today. Over time the brassiere has moved from its original purpose of supporting the bust […]

Men’s water polo goes 2-2 at ECACs

The GW men’s water polo team had a successful weekend at the Eastern College Athletic Conference Championships in Providence, R.I. this weekend, especially considering it was the tenth seed going into the ten-team tournament. Playing four games against good teams, the Colonials won two and lost two, beating top-seeded Queens College and Johns Hopkins University […]

Battle of the Sexes

Q: I’ve been going to the gym and lifting weights for the past three months. However, I can’t seem to get rid of my, well, “man boobs.” Are they a turnoff to most girls? I feel really self-conscious taking my shirt off in front of a new girlfriend. What can I do to get rid […]

Hooters: A girls night out

Hooters 825 7th Street N.W., a block away from the Chinatown Metro station 962-0965 Hooters is not a restaurant that I would ever imagine myself spending a Thursday night at. In fact, I counted, and there were probably a dozen or fewer women dining in the restaurant, and this includes my friends and I. This […]
