The Law is on your side

Heads nodded to the alluring beats of junior Jinmi Lawson, as he performed his song “Naija o” alongside Viola Pedro and vocalist Mackenzie Howard in the Marvin Center Ballroom last Thursday night. Staged at The Organization of African Student’s A Taste of Africa event, the hip-hop song described Lawson’s life growing up in Nigeria. “I’ve […]

GW extends Hobbs’s contract through 2011

Men’s basketball head coach Karl Hobbs may or may not lead the Colonials to the NCAA Tournament next month, but GW officials didn’t wait that long to make a decision about his future. The University extended the fourth-year head coach’s contract through 2011. Terms of the three-year extension were not disclosed. The timing of the […]

Theatre Review: Tartuffe-aloof

Those who chose to attend the GW Department of Theater’s production of Tartuffe as a relaxing break from a session of hard midterm studying might have reconsidered their decision.

In an unusual move, GW has instructed all community hosts, who man dorm entrances, to immediately notify University Police if any of six students try to enter residence halls. Community hosts were given a sheet of paper with the names and photos of the six individuals on Feb. 18. The Hatchet is withholding the names […]

Column: Nuclear winter comes to the Senate

Imagine this: a bleak, inhospitable landscape, once a fertile place for growth and development, is now nothing more than scorched earth. Whatever life remains is twisted and bent on the total destruction of what’s left of the environment. The future, if it can be called that, is absolutely depressing. What is it? A war zone […]

A ghost reborn live

The second performance of Wilco’s two-night stand at 9:30 Club was, in a word: mesmerizing, replete with beauty, humor and inspiration. Lead singer Jeff Tweedy rambled on stage, glowering like Johnny Cash with his band in tow, and dove in to “Handshake Drugs,” which sounded simultaneously lovely and harrowing, considering his recent stint in rehab […]

Letter to the Editor

Leave fantasy island As far as I can tell from walking around campus, all of the candidates in the Student Association elections endorse loud music, free candy and mass littering.
