Come celebrate with us

August 24, 2011 by The GW Hatchet

On Thursday, Sept. 8, The GW Hatchet Alumni Association officially kicks off – and we want you to join us for all the fun! All former writers, photographers, editors and staff are invited to swap stories, reconnect with old colleagues, meet new friends and see what all the buzz is about.

From 6 to 8:30 p.m., enjoy light appetizers, music and good company at One Lounge DC, a hip cocktail lounge in the heart of North Dupont, with a dash of tradition and relaxed atmosphere. (Sounds just like producing an issue on deadline, right?)

If you can make it, please RSVP here. For directions, see the bottom of this post.

This is also just the beginning – all fall, we’ll have events — and not just in D.C. For those in New York City, please save the date for our Manhattan kickoff: September 22nd October 5th at 7pm, location TBA.

We’ll also continue to have the annual open house during GW’s Alumni Weekend, likely on Saturday, Sept. 17. Come flip through bound editions for memories of the past, or chat with current staffers about volume 108. Light refreshments served.

For any inquiries or comments about our launch celebration, or questions about getting involved with the programming committee, please feel free to contact us at
