Here is the church and here is the steeple

Nestled deep within the GW campus, with its fire-engine red doors and beautiful brick walls, St. Mary’s is both a spiritual home for students and residents and an architectural treasure. Although it is currently sandwiched between Hillel and the Health and Wellness Center on 23rd Street, it has managed to keep its independence and its […]

Column: Misrepresenting Bush’s economy

The American economy is recovering, and recovering fast. Productivity, home ownership, across-the-board income levels, retail sales and consumer spending are all rising rapidly. The foundation of our economy, the American stock market, has recovered nearly $3 trillion in lost wealth. We have also recovered nearly 70,000 jobs, and many economists are predicting a 5 percent […]

Battle of the Sexes

Q: I’m trying to land this girl, and I’m not having much luck. She’s friendly enough, but when the moment comes, I get left hanging there. Her friends say she won’t hook up with me because she thinks I’m sketchy. That might be partially true, but I still really want to nail her. How do […]

Column: Sorry state of liberal dissent

Cheerleading is not a sport. At least not at GW, where it falls under the classification of a student activity. But at the University of Maryland, cheerleading became a varsity sport last month, as the school created one squad to cheer at games and one to attend competitions while providing a total of 12 new […]

University reacts to New Hall security breach

Housing officials shut off student GWorld access Friday to a New Hall storage room containing archived housing information including student Social Security numbers and senior administration correspondence. The Hatchet discovered last week that students living in New Hall could enter the storage closet, located in the first-floor community room. The room held files for the […]

Seniors say farewell with key A-10 win

Everyone wondered, prior to Sunday’s game, if senior Kim Warner would score in her final home game as a Colonial. The prolific scorer and Atlantic 10 leader in goals answered just two minutes into the game against Temple, netting her 40th career goal as a Colonial and her conference-leading 11th of the season. Warner added […]

Law professors vote to sue Pentagon

GW Law School professors voted Friday to join a group of law schools suing the U.S. Defense Department for allegedly discriminating against gays. If Law School Dean Michael Young approves the decision, the school will become a member of a coalition of law schools that claims the Solomon Amendment, which withholds federal funding from universities […]
