The Trustees claim they were in a tight spot this weekend. But really, they were in a key spot. They had the chance to make a difference and instead gave the College the go-ahead to remain exactly as it is: fearful and hostile toward its own gay, lesbian and bisexual community.
The Board of Trustees will decide at its meeting this weekend to bolster the College's Principle of Equal Opportunity, or undermine it. The current stand on the Reserve Officer Training Corps is mired in hypocrisy and needs resolution. In the winter of 1993 the Trustees delayed the decision about ROTC's future to allow the Clinton administration time to lift the military's ban on homosexuals. The Trustees cannot afford to wait any longer.
When you cast a vote today, don't think you are buying into a system that has become a bickering, stagnant resume filler. Rather, think of it as a chance to buy your way out of that system. Cast your vote for this potential.

College President James Freedman has faced many challenges during his time at Dartmouth. Now he faces a greater challenge, but he is not alone. Cancer must be faced by other members of the College community as well.
Student Assembly President Nicole Artzer '94 should demand the resignation of SA Vice-president Steve Costalas '94 and the six other members of the Executive Committee who on Monday issued the statement threatening her with removal from office.
According to members of the Student Assembly Executive Committee, President Nicole Artzer stepped outside her bounds by attempting to undermine a vote that called for a boycott of Dartmouth Dining Services. Artzer is accused of persuading DDS officials to end their dialogue with the Assembly until after the boycott, which Artzer opposed and expects to flop. The details of her alleged actions are unclear. Artzer's opponents say she took matters into her own hands and at tonight's meeting, they threaten her with removal from office.
The College will be in good hands next winter when President James Freedman begins a well-deserved sabbatical. His temporary successor, Dean of Faculty James Wright, has proven himself a capable administrator, whose commitment to excellence in research and teaching has made him popular with the faculty. Of the College's top personnel, he is best qualified to assume Freedman's duties. Wright chaired the committee that revamped the College's curriculum. Thanks to his strong leadership and dedication, the new curriculum will be in place for the Class of 1998. Another committee chaired by Wright released a 1987 report on residential life that has been the administration's guide on student life outside of the classroom. It served as the catalyst for several major improvements in student life, including the construction of the new Collis student center.
An inquiry by the Greek Life Evaluation Committee formed by the heads of the Greek umbrella organizations would be similar to the question asked by Snow White's step-mother to her magic mirror, who is the fairest of them all.
She had a dream - to one day see her college with all its students gathered comfortably under the same roof. To personally foster the sense of community that only a school stashed out in the middle of rural New Hampshire would support. And to give students here the diverse array of social activities that undergraduates in city schools only have to step off campus to find.
Are things at Dartmouth College better than when you first got here?

When members of the Class of 1997 gathered in Leede Arena for their first class meeting Saturday night, the men and women of Dartmouth were greeted by Dean of Students Lee Pelton.

"Fundamental to the principle of independent learning are the requirements of honesty and integrity in the performance of academic assignments both in the classroom and outside."
