I find Danica Lo's article very interesting in its citation of examples of sexism in Cairo; I wonder why she doesn't do the same examination to the Greek system.
What are the ends of a liberal arts education? This is a good question. The term is bandied around by Dartmouth and other schools of like character. However, I wonder if these schools have paused to contemplate the actual definition of a liberal arts education. Dartmouth's mission statement states that Dartmouth "combines the best features of the undergraduate liberal arts college with those of the research university." Nowhere within the statement do we find a definition of a liberal arts education. It does state that Dartmouth is a "vital learning environment rooted in the liberal arts tradition" and that this environment "depends upon: a faculty dedicated to outstanding teaching, scholarship, and research; a talented, highly motivated, and intellectually curious student body; and a staff committed to the institution and its purposes." In this column I propose to argue that Dartmouth is not imparting a liberals arts education to its students and then to propose a possible manner in which it could remedy this situation.
To the Editor:
Since last February, people who care about Darmouth and its future have been voicing their opinions in order to defend their viewpoint as well as convince others of it. Naturally, part of that endeavor involves using rhetoric in a passionate way. However, it strikes me that the analogies that have been employed in order to illustrate the importance that the Greek system holds for some of its members and the role it plays at Dartmouth are, by and large, egregiously inappropriate.
About 330 of the 700 College seniors and graduate students who had orginally signed up for the first round of corporate recruiting turned in their resumes by the Nov. 11 deadline, according to Career Services' Recruitment Coordinator Monica Wilson.
Major donations to the College may not be affected by the Trustee's Initiative on Social and Residential Life as three of the largest donors said their decisions to make future donations will not be influenced by the report of the steering committee to be released in January.
Dartmouth College was printed in a list of ten "Questionable Schools for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgendered Students" in the Fall issue of Metrosource magazine, to mixed reactions among the College's gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered community.
According to campus registrars at Dartmouth and throughout the Ivy League, grade inflation has been an increasing phenomenon over the past two decades.
Despite the College's "Animal House" reputation, Dartmouth students are no better or worse than their peers when it comes to dangerous drinking, according to Margaret Smith, the College's coordinator of Alcohol and Other Drug Education Programs.
First off, the title: ignore it. You know which one I'm talking about--the ninety-word chess metaphor. All unnecessary enjambment, Maya envy and portentous allusion ... you really had us worried, Fiona. Please don't do it again.
Students can once again cheer on the Big Green basketball teams from the student luxury box as the Athletic Department announced that it will make the promotion available for all men's and women's home games this season.
Women's soccer head coach Kelly Blasius Knudsen '91 announced her resignation from the Big Green soccer team yesterday due to family reasons just a week after leading Dartmouth to its second consecutive NCAA tournament appearance.
Should you go for one or two? It is traditionally one of the most difficult decisions to be made on Sunday and, consequently, the most scrutinized on Monday morning.

At last, negotiations over next year's federal budget are winding down, and Congressmen everywhere are eagerly preparing to get home in time for Thanksgiving. It is the time of year when they can relax, sit-back and enjoy a good home-cooked turkey and some old-fashioned pumpkin pie. They can finally catch their breath, now that they have successfully cut up the federal budget into little pieces in order to satisfy the voracious appetites of the interest groups. Like rude guests trying to grab at food, the lobbyists have been unusually successful in gobbling up the pork barrel spending dollars hastily included in the budget during these last few rough and tumble negotiating days. According to the Wall Street Journal, the Veterans-HUD appropriation measure was crammed with 444 specially earmarked items worth about $250 million. The defense bill included around $6 billion of pork. The surprising truth is that corporate lobbyist firms do not request many of these pork-barrel projects. Instead the money is quietly appropriated to placate the smaller groups, representing the constituents of a particularly powerful Congressman.
The vast differences that exist between the sexes have always been well documented. Unfortunately, most of these documents have been lost, because they have been left under the care of men. History has proven that it is a very bad idea to leave anything important under the care of men, including money and children. On the other hand, as long as an item has remotely to do with sports, a man is constitutionally obliged to view it as the single most important and useful item ever created, since himself.
I am, as I am so often forced to tell the ubiquitous brother or sister at the door, a three. This makes me inherently dumb, insecure and prone to social faux pas. So of course there is no way I could have an opinion on the Greek aspect of the social initiative. And I have to admit that I really don't know where I stand on the future of the frats.
As the end draws near of my overwhelming first term, I am astonished to realize that I can actually call this place home. Not a day goes by when I cease to appreciate my luck at arriving at the wonderfully bucolic and intoxicating (no pun intended) institution, in some small way or another. Perhaps it's when I marvel at the architecture of Baker or Dartmouth Row on my way to class. Or when I stumble across an interesting and fun peer, a possible future friend. And not a weekend goes by when I don't attempt to take full advantage of the social scene on campus. "Oh, but you're an '03? Oh, okay, you're a girl, c'mon in"
The Supreme Court considered the constitutionality of student activity fees last week as it heard arguments in the Board of Regents of the University of Wisconsin v. Southworth case.
