Stories from the November 17, 2003 issue of the GW Hatchet.

Editorial: C-Cash negatives

The advent of Colonial Cash to replace meal points and Debit Dollars on GWorld cards is embraced by students across the board for improving dining options and simplifying many expenditures, as Colonial Cash can be used in off-campus eating venues as well on many non-food purchases. At first this page’s praise of Colonial Cash was […]

Column: The closet conservative

“The Constitution requires an interpretation of the law… We want judges who will interpret the law and not make the law.” (Sen. Charles Schumer, D-NY, on the Senate floor, Nov. 12, 2003.) I suddenly and violently arose from my seat in the Senate gallery – I thought I was hallucinating. It was getting late and […]

Column: A Thanksgiving odyssey

This plane is like an oversized hypodermic needle. The narrow commuter jet seats three across, and perched at the front is an exceptionally sharp nosecone. To boot, this morning it will tear me from GW and inject me into South Carolina, ground zero for the annual Thanksgiving family train wreck. “I’ll take that when you’re […]

Editorial: On the air

The future for a vibrant campus media community is now looking a bit brighter. GW-TV, now broadcasting on campus cable channel 6, represents a huge step toward the creation of a comprehensive broadcast news and entertainment outlet. It is an unprecedented step from an administration that has shown little creativity to foster this type of […]

Balanced attack keys men over EA Sports

The GW men’s basketball team converted only one of its trademark alley-oops in Saturday’s exhibition against the EA Sports All-Stars, but the Colonials were still able to put on a show for the Smith Center crowd. In a game that saw GW make numerous flashy dunks, dishes and defensive plays, the Colonials cruised to a […]

Letters to the Editor

No equivalency I rarely respond verbally to my reading material, but I made an exception (in four-letter form) while perusing (last week’s) Hatchet. To hear the head of Student Judicial Services declare (in “UPD finds drugs,” Nov. 13, p. 1) that there is no difference between marijuana and cocaine- that “drugs are drugs”- was both […]

GW’s A-10 title defense ends in first round loss

Temple denied the GW men’s soccer team an Atlantic 10 Championship repeat in tumultuous weather Thursday as the Owls shut out the Colonials 2-0. The No. 3 seed Owls would advance to the finals before losing to Rhode Island, while the No. 6 seed Colonials had their hot streak and season ended at First Market […]

GW qualifies for A-10 Tournament

GW volleyball qualified for the Atlantic 10 tournament by beating La Salle Friday night and then getting help from Xavier and Dayton, who both beat Rhode Island over the weekend. Even though the Colonials lost to Temple Saturday, their win Friday coupled with URI’s losses propelled GW to a tie for third place with Xavier, […]

Women edge traveling pros

Thursday night’s exhibition game for the GW women’s basketball team was primarily meant to be a showcase for the less experienced players. But once the game got close, it was GW’s seniors who led the team to victory. After blowing a 10-point second half lead, the Colonials found themselves trailing the National Women’s Basketball League […]

Making the big move

The day after Jessica Goss graduated from GW, she hopped on a plane to California and moved in with her boyfriend of nearly two years. “I’d been planning it for a while, but was still a little nervous,” she says of her feelings before the move. “I was just hoping we wouldn’t drive each other […]
