Aires perform for Obama at White House

(12/19/11 4:00am)

The Dartmouth Aires did not let the temperate climate of Washington, D.C., preclude them from celebrating an early "white" Christmas on Friday, when the a cappella group performed at the White House as part of its winter tour. The Aires sang holiday favorites and some of their arrangements from NBC's "The Sing-Off" for the last of a series of private holiday parties held by President Barack Obama.

Dartmouth accepts 465 students in early decision process

(12/13/11 5:30pm)

The College offered 465 students early decision admission to the Class of 2016 out of the 1,800 applications received, according to a College press release. This marks a 21-student increase, as 444 students were accepted early into the Class of 2015 from an 1,759-person applicant pool. This rise in accepted students is due to the strength of the early applicant pool, Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid Maria Laskaris said in an interview with The Dartmouth.

Green Team finds footing at Dartmouth

(12/09/11 8:13pm)

  Head into any Greek house on a party night and you'll see no­tice count­less in­ter­ac­tions that grow more mud­dled as BAC's climb. Since their first gig at Theta in Feb­ru­ary, 2011, a group of Dart­mouth stu­dents have been work­ing cre­atively to an­swer ques­tions about the best way to han­dle the com­pli­ca­tions of drink­ing on cam­pus. Green Team, the stu­dent-run by­stander in­ter­ven­tion pro­gram de­signed to re­duce al­co­hol harm and sex­ual as­sault, has grown by leaps and bounds since its ini­tial im­ple­men­ta­tion. Mod­eled after a sim­i­lar by­stander in­ter­ven­tion pro­gram at Haver­ford called the Quaker Bounc­ers, Green Team began shak­ily and suf­fered staffing chal­lenges in the Spring. Ac­cord­ing to Will Conaway '13, a Green Team com­mit­tee mem­ber, Sum­mer term bore wit­ness to a great in­crease in use. From spring to sum­mer, staffing is­sues that left some par­ties staffed by only a par­tial team dis­ap­peared. Now, Conaway says, any­where be­tween 20 to 30 peo­ple sign up to work work Green Team on a given Wednes­day, Fri­day or Sat­ur­day. Conaway es­ti­mates that there are over 300 trained Green Team mem­bers on cam­pus this fall and even more off cam­pus. Rec­og­niz­ing the ben­e­fits of hav­ing mem­bers trained to deal with high-risk Greek is­sues, some Greek or­ga­ni­za­tions have begun send­ing mem­bers to get trained. Be­yond solv­ing staffing is­sues for Green Team, Conaway be­lieves that Green Team train­ing will kick in for stu­dents whether they're on duty or hang­ing out ca­su­ally with friends. In other words, hun­dreds of stu­dents trained in by­stander in­ter­ven­tion are now de­ployed across cam­pus each night, cer­tainly a pos­i­tive for cam­pus. At this point, Green Team's fate is no longer in ques­tion. Conaway de­scribes the pro­gram as steady-state since the sum­mer and re­sources do not ap­pear to be an issue as the group's re­ceived strong sup­port from the Col­lege. Green Team's focus is shift­ing from major im­ple­men­ta­tion chal­lenges to data col­lec­tion, the analy­sis of which can feed into larger Col­lege harm re­duc­tion strate­gies. In­ter­est­ingly, other col­leges may begin to pick up the pro­gram. In early No­vem­ber, stu­dents from De­pauw Uni­ver­sity vis­ited Hanover to dis­cuss the pro­gram with Green Team mem­bers and ob­served a party in progress. Conaway notes that many schools are still stuck with a pol­icy en­force­ment strat­egy with re­gard to al­co­hol. If other schools begin to try a harm re­duc­tion ap­proach, we may see lo­cally grown va­ri­eties of Green Team and the Haver­ford Bounc­ers pop­ping up across the na­tion. Conaway seems op­ti­mistic, but rec­og­nizes harm re­duc­tion in so­cial spaces as only one of many steps to chang­ing cam­pus drink­ing cul­ture. And, per­haps in the not-so-dis­tant fu­ture, Dart­mouth will be held up as a model of in­no­v­a­tive al­co­hol poli­cies.
