Kim's decision to streamline the administrative structure at Dartmouth represents a positive step forward in dealing with the financial crisis. A less bureaucratic and more efficient administration is what any college should want, and in the face of major budget cuts, it is what Dartmouth desperately needs.
The fact that students formed a committee this spring to advise College administrators on disability-related issues is a step in the right direction. Responsibility in this case falls both to students and to the College. Open communication and cooperation between students and administrators is critical to solving this issue. Blair Sullivan '10
Friday's Verbum Ultimum called for Dartmouth football Head Coach Buddy Teevens '79 to lead the team to win Saturday's Homecoming game against Columbia University. What does Saturday's victory mean for Dartmouth football and Teevens' job?It was an inspiring win for Dartmouth, and one we sorely needed. But let's not get ahead of ourselves with the symbolism of Saturday's win. There's still a lot of work and winning to do before Teevens' and Dartmouth football's reputations can turn the corner.

The problem with rush is that so many girls enter the process with their minds already made up and then drop out once their preconceived expectations are not met. But these expectations are often based on ignorance. Many women hold judgments about houses into which they have never set foot. For this reason, the Editorial Board suggests that round one of the current system be left in place, since it makes visits to every house mandatory. But one crowded, noisy, 45-minute visit is not enough to make up for a year's worth of "lack of open parties." Perhaps the sororities should make more efforts during the year to hold open events (which do not necessarily have to involve alcohol, in compliance with national rules) which would allow freshman women (and the rest of campus) to get a feel for the true character of their houses.

First, I doubt any student was "left reeling" by Scherr's departure. Who even knows what the Provost does? That said, change is needed the Wright administration was flawed. I certainly hope Kim will lead us in the right direction, but at any rate, positions cannot be left unfilled in this critical time. Phil Aubart '10
Believing that the most important goal of campus alcohol reform should be "saving lives" is simply counterproductive thinking. An effective Good Samaritan policy is certainly a must. But the College alcohol policy's main goal should really educate students about responsible drinking. Eliminating legal punishment so that Good Sam can be used effectively will, of course, save lives, but won't it create a safer drinking environment that only encourages students to abuse alcohol?Jasper Hicks '12
