For more than a century, The GW Hatchet has provided the first draft of the George Washington University’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.
After becoming a non-profit corporation independent of university in 1993, The Hatchet is ready to take the final step towards complete independence—a home of its own. The newspaper currently rents a small, crowded, woefully inadequate townhouse from the university, which has been a good and fair landlord, but to be truly independent, The Hatchet needs to eliminate the last major financial tie it has to GW. The Hatchet needs a facility that reflects the realities of publishing today while offering opportunities for students to embrace whatever the future of media may hold.
