The Associated Collegiate Press named The GW Hatchet one of the best student newspapers in the country, the ACP announced Tuesday.
The Hatchet was honored for its coverage in breaking news, general news, feature writing, video, podcast, data visualization, photography and opinions writing.

The Society of Professional Journalists selected The Hatchet as winners for four regional awards and finalists for six awards in an annual journalism competition.

We will continue to release updates daily. Beginning April 13, we plan to publish one edition per week.
