While conversing with me about his Democratic party canvassing work this past summer, my friend uttered something that struck me as highly interesting: "When I walked up to a house that had American flags prominently displayed, I assumed that it was a conservative house. More often than not, it was." This statement seems to reflect a broader association with the flag pervading the country; that the American flag, which should stand for both parties and the nation where they exist, has become a conservative Republican image.
The role of Student Assembly at Dartmouth is pretty simple: to help improve life at Dartmouth and to convey student concerns to the administration. To accomplish our task, SA has a few tools: relationships with the administration, money and, most importantly, motivated students. Dartmouth students know how to effect change, and SA members are no different. Think about what they have accomplished recently on big issues relevant to students: funding for club sports (SA secured a $30,000 increase this year), ROTC (SA asked the trustees to consider the issue, and they voted to support the program last weekend), divestment from the Sudan (SA worked with other campus groups to accomplish this), college judicial policies (SA has established peer advisors for Committee on Standards cases), the Good Samaritan policy (after SA's work, there are no limits on the number of times you can call), concerns regarding class size (the hiring process is underway for several new economics and government professors). The leadership of SA members has been critical in all of these issues -- in raising them, solving them or contributing to campus discussion.

A multifaith panel of Dartmouth students discussed their religious experiences at the College in front of a packed audience Tuesday night in Collis Commonground.
Sophomores presented original research they conducted over the summer Monday and Tuesday at the First-Year Summer Research Symposium. Students explained their work at poster sessions and through in-depth individual presentations over the two days.
Although the College's Board of Trustees voted last weekend to avoid investing in six oil companies that operate in Sudan, Dartmouth has not announced plans to divest from two telecommunications firms with interests in the country, which has been accused of staging a genocidal campaign in its Darfur region.
Starting Dec. 8, the College will shut down the BbOne program, a debit account allowing students to use their Dartmouth Cards at town vendors, BbOne Senior Operations Director Dan Gretz announced in a BlitzMail message to students Tuesday. Checks refunding the balance of all BbOne accounts will be mailed to students' home addresses before the end of December.
Editor's Note: This is the first in a three-part series looking at the evolution of beer pong as a social and cultural phenomenon at Dartmouth. This article will examine the prominent role pong plays in social life on campus.
"Aerial" should come with a warning label: "Caution: Induces drowsiness. Do not use while operating heavy machinery." Or perhaps: "May be indicated in the relief of insomnia. Patent pending." Actually, this one might suffice: "Not intended for use by intelligent consumers."
Dartmouth men's runners stormed to an NCAA qualifying bid and the women saw one of their own also make the cut as the Big Green cross country teams ran at the NCAA Northeast Region Meet in Boston's Franklin Park Saturday.
Twelve minutes after 5 p.m. Monday night, the Collis TV lounge exploded with applause and cheers. It was the time that the NCAA Men's Soccer Championship bracket was announced and the soccer gods smiled upon reigning Ivy League champion Dartmouth as the team players had gathered to follow the draw on ESPNEWS. For the first time in school history, the team was seeded in the draw and will receive a first-round bye.
Technology writers have likened the internet to the Wild West (it's an analogy I am not particularly fond of, for reasons that will become clear soon enough, but for the moment I will just run with it).
The war was "unnecessarily and unconstitutionally commenced by the President" and justified by the "sheerest deception." These are not the words of some liberal New England Democrat about the current Iraq war, but those of Congressman Abraham Lincoln in the U.S. House of Representatives in Jan. 1848, explaining his opposition to the ongoing Mexican War. Conservative pundit Sean Hannity's nineteenth-century counterpart would have labeled the Illinois Representative an "apologist" for the bellicose Mexicans and responsible for emboldening America's enemies and endangering American soldiers. Does Abraham Lincoln hate America?
For some Dartmouth students, attending class is not as simple as just showing up, taking notes and participating in discussion. Looking around the room, you may not notice that the student next to you isn't taking notes because he is physically incapable, or that he needed a few extra hours on last week's midterm because of a learning disability. Or maybe you do notice because there is an aide in the front of the class translating into American Sign Language.
With the tsunami last December and Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, the Oct. 6 earthquake in Pakistan and Kashmir threatens to be lost in the shuffle, despite having killed at least 87,000 people.
The Tucker Foundation kicked off its Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week Sunday. Although this campaign is held the week before Thanksgiving on hundreds of college campuses, Dartmouth's involvement has a unique twist this year.
Jeff Jacoby, a conservative op-ed columnist for the Boston Globe, spoke on the present state of anti-Semitism in the eastern and western world Monday at an event sponsored by Chabad, the Jewish Studies Program and the Rockefeller Center.
With so many Dartmouth students conducting the majority of their correspondences over BlitzMail, inboxes have been filling to the 20 megabyte capacity quickly. To deal with this issue, Computer Services has announced that starting Tuesday the storage quota for BlitzMail will be increased to 500 megabytes.
Every once in a while, amidst the barrage of noisy, soulless Hollywood constructions that elbow their way into theatres every Friday, there emerges a film so perceptive and insightful that it magnetizes you to the screen for its entire running time. Films like this don't come along often, and when they do, they are too frequently ignored in favor of the next big Rob Schneider comedy. But it would be a tragedy and a crime if the movie-going public were to pass over George Clooney's quiet masterpiece "Good Night, and Good Luck."
