GW Expat: Just another day in Cairo

Junior Geoff Bendeck, an international affairs major, will spend two semesters studying abroad in Cairo and – Office of Study Abroad permission pending – Beirut, Lebanon. Twice a month, he will share his experiences and observations from the Middle East as one of GW’s many expats. “Hiiyyaa!” exhaled our guide Mohammed. It was the perfect […]

Women’s tennis wins two, loses one

In tennis, perhaps more than in any other sport, a player is never really out of a match until he shakes hands with his opponent. Each individual game represents a fresh start, as all it takes is a few points for the momentum to change sides completely, simultaneously starting both a comeback and a collapse. […]

Men’s soccer stopped in 2 OT

The sun shone on Saturday at the Mount Vernon Athletic Complex for the GW men’s soccer team’s last out-of-conference game. But the sun was not a telling sign for how GW fared in the contest.

In the Sept. 26 article about a CLLC database, The Hatchet wrote that it began questioning CLLC on Sept. 13. The reporter actually began questioning CLLC on Sept. 16. In a Sept. 29 article about “The Kalb Report,” […]

Sigma Chi returning to campus

The Interfraternity Council announced Sunday that Sigma Chi will be invited to create a colony on campus, increasing the number of fraternities on campus from 12 to 13. After a yearlong process of advertising an opening in GW’s Greek life to more than 30 national fraternities, in the last month GW invited five national fraternities […]
