Column: Work it out

Every frosh down in frosh-ville likes HOVA a lot, but the Advisory Neighborhood Commission who lived just north of frosh-ville most certainly did not. The ANC hated HOVA … no one quite knows the reason. They hated it, and the whole school-year season. It could be that their head wasn’t screwed on quite right, or […]

Beck’s flurry leads women over Dayton

Coming off a road loss to La Salle Thursday night, the GW women’s basketball team needed a spark against Dayton Sunday. Freshman Kimberly Beck provided it, helping the Colonials down Dayton 71-59. GW (14-7, 7-3 Atlantic 10) came out sluggish against Dayton (10-11, 4-6 A-10), but Beck’s play drove her team down the stretch. With […]

Letters to the Editor

Keep smoking Though I recently quit smoking, I am appalled at the recent University decision to ban smoking in on-campus rooms next fall. What a joke. My advice is to smoke anyway. This is just another ridiculous attempt of GW trying to and convince you that you are not, despite the truth to the contrary, […]

Rookie runs the women’s show

She stands at five-feet-eight-inches and speaks with a slight southern drawl. Even though she just turned 18 just two months ago, she seems older than her age. But Kimberly Beck is just a freshman.

Penn State roommates try to auction dorm window for ad space (U-WIRE) UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – If a man is able to sell his forehead as advertising space for $37,000, roommates Darren Braun and Shane Goodman thought they could easily sell their dorm room window as well. “It was a ‘Seinfeld’ moment. We thought, ‘Hey, […]

Column: Aborting debate

A recent Hatchet editorial (“Change tactics,” Jan. 27, p. 4) claimed that “where pro-life advocates have succeeded most substantially lies in their ability to dehumanize any woman who partakes in the (abortion) procedure.” This claim could not be further from the truth. The pro-life movement is rooted in the fundamental truth that all human beings […]

Bush, lawmakers propose Pell Grant changes

President Bush and some federal lawmakers have proposed additional plans for funding the cash-strapped Pell Grant program in the wake of tighter eligibility requirements set to take effect next school year. The program, which offers the main form of federal aid for underprivileged students, is running a $4.3 billion budget shortfall. Congress amended the program […]

Academically anxious students confront college stress

For many GW students returning for the spring semester, first-day jitters have taken on a whole new meaning. “Have you ever juggled?” inquired sophomore Mike Coffman when asked to describe the management of his busy life. Along with the usual stress of everyday life, college brings the added pressures of balancing work, extracurricular commitments and […]

Sex appeal: The VIP section

At one time or another in a sexual relationship, you hit a point when new frontiers are either conquered or avoided. There’s the pushing of one’s head towards another’s lap; the slipping of multiple digits into one’s orifice; and the possible entry into one’s body saved for only a select few. The topic of anal […]

University evaluates dorm phones

University officials are considering the elimination of telephones in residence hall rooms in response to decreased demand and the widespread use of cell phones. GW is following in the steps of colleges across the country that are contemplating silencing dorm phones that in many cases go practically unused by students. Officials stressed that they are […]
