For more than a century, The GW Hatchet has provided the first draft of GW’s history. It has also served as a home away from home for countless journalists and business students, for whom The Hatchet was as much a part of their social and emotional connection to GW as it was a place of education and professional development.
About two decades after becoming a non-profit corporation independent of the University in 1993, The Hatchet took the final step toward complete independence – finding a home of its own. The newspaper once rented a small, crowded, woefully inadequate townhouse from the University, which had been a good and fair landlord, but to be truly independent, The Hatchet needed to eliminate the last major financial tie it had to GW. The Hatchet needed a facility that reflected the realities of publishing today while offering opportunities for students to embrace whatever the future of media might hold.
