At the end of his most recent rant ("Consider This," August 15), Zachary Gottlieb '10 concludes that we Dartmouth students are "a bunch of jerks" who have supplied "no evidence to contradict" his belief that our campus is plagued by a "lack of consideration for property, academics and most importantly, people." Gottlieb's argument, which is reminiscent of his previous column's ("Passing the Buck," August 1) criticism of the average Dartmouth student's "numbing apathy", begins with the initial claim that we are all "self-serving, destructive people." This claim is later developed through the use of tragic, firsthand stories of Dartmouth's antisociality: In one, Gottlieb is unable to leave his row during a quiz because his classmates won't pull their legs in; in another, first-comers to a free-pizza event take whole pies, leaving subsequent pizza-hopefuls unsatiated. While there is truth to Gottlieb's argument -- the theft and vandalism that he denounces, as well as other unmentioned forms of abuse (both physical and emotional), are very real problems, even within our "Dartmouth bubble" -- he is misguided both in targeting the "self-serving" aspects of our student body's alleged personality, and in lumping these aspects together with the "destructive" ones.

The event, which was relocated from Massachusetts Row due to impending rain, is meant to spread campus awareness of issues surrounding consensual sex, according to Xenia Markowitt, director of the Center for Women and Gender Studies. "Consent is an important topic to address for Dartmouth students, as well as anyone else, because there is a pandemic of sexual violence all over the world," Markowitt said. The CWG organized the two-hour event, which featured booths and activities run by various College and community organizations.
