State Democrats reacted quickly when the Republican Party, trying to garner last-minute support with New Hampshire's swing voters, began paying part-time workers $75 this weekend to devote a day to the Bush campaign -- especially in liberal areas like Hanover.
Think of presidential campaign field offices and one likely pictures phones ringing off the hook, harried staffers plotting campaign strategy and volunteers stuffing envelopes or calling for donations.
Welcome to Dartmouth!
It wasn't your usual assortment of familiar Hollywood names, indie-movie insiders or even obscure foreign actors that flashed across the screen in Loew Auditorium Wednesday evening.
To high schoolers browsing through The Princeton Review's 2004 guide to the Best 351 Colleges, life at Dartmouth may seem nearly utopian.
On first glance, the two scenes could not have appeared more different.
Some of the best tree"climbers in the world have signed their names in support of preserving the tree that until a few days ago held Dartmouth's latest -- and by some accounts, greatest -- rope swing.
For the third time in three years, authorities have decided to cut down the rope swing hanging over the Connecticut River. The move was prompted by the College's desire to reduce insurance liability risks and prevent injuries.
Its name sounds like the kind of sarcastic epithet critics might concoct. But members of the Blabberforce, an informal collection of students and administrators intent on creating a more definable image for Dartmouth, describe their efforts with the sincerity and idealism that they say only befits a school this impressive.
The T-shirts and posters boldly proclaim the drinking habits of the average Dartmouth students -- but they may do nothing to reduce alcohol abuse at the College. In fact, they may even be worsening the problem, according to a study released last week by the Harvard School of Public Health.
Steeped in Scottish history and culture and home to an ancient Christian divinity school, Edinburgh might seem like the perfect place to hold the Religion department's Foreign Study Program.
Dartmouth may have a vast collection of employees devoted to making sure the institution runs smoothly, but when it comes to out-of-the-ordinary operations, it is reliant on one bureau: the Office of Special Events and Conferences. But for all the major programs that it runs both during the year and in the summertime, the office, which is hidden quietly away in Blunt Alumni Center, prefers to present itself as a service-oriented organization rather than a money-maker or image-booster for the College.
Given Dartmouth's presence in New Hampshire, long a bastion of conservative thinking and political individualism, it may not come as a surprise to many that Dartmouth was until last week one of the few Ivy League schools without a civil liberties organization.
That the College has decided to give students, faculty and staff free long-distance calling might seem paradoxical in a time of persistent budget worries, but a new system that does just this will save both Dartmouth and Dartmouth students money in the end, according to officials in Network Services.
A paucity of summer course offerings across all departments may have many students complaining, but many of those majoring in smaller departments are troubled by their lack of options. These programs offer either no courses at all or nothing but an independent study, making fulfilling major requirements inordinately difficult, they said.
It may seem like an inordinate number of non-sophomores are milling around campus this summer, but according to enrollment statistics from the Registrar and housing data from the Office of Residential Life, the class breakdown is similar to that of recent years.
The Dartmouth Bookstore may enjoy the distinction of being steeped in tradition as America's oldest family-owned enterprise of the sort, but it hasn't managed to escape the newfound mania surrounding the release of J.K. Rowling's latest addition to her wildly popular Harry Potter children's series.
In direct response to the College's recent budget troubles and inspired by a little friendly competition in the tradition of reunion fund-raising, several alumni classes have raised record-setting amounts of money for Dartmouth.
Last term, small white signs decrying the recent budget cuts appeared on bulletin boards around campus. The signs, which criticized College spending in light of cuts to academic and athletic programs, linked two separate areas of the budget and reminded the campus that in an economic downturn, all areas of College spending are vulnerable to increased scrutiny.
Worried that Dartmouth could jeopardize its status as a tax-exempt institution, the College is reviewing the legal implications of allowing academic departments to fund political protests.
