Sports fans -- We have arrived. These are the golden weeks of sport: the World Series, the NFL season hitting full stride, the NHL underway and the NBA not far off in the future. It's that mystical time in the fall when the heavens align and the world of sport permeates every mind in America. In World Series news, thanks to another brilliant post-season performance by Kenny Rogers and the pine tar on his left hand, the Detroit Tigers have tied the series at one game apiece.

While there are times when the conservative man on my shoulder spouts vitriol about the unfairness of a leftist monopoly on higher education, recently I have been wondering if perhaps the political discourse in this nation could benefit from a little academic thought.

Instead of a single passage and ensuing questions on the LSAT's reading comprehension section, the new version, termed comparative reading, will feature two passages attached to a single set of questions.

Student disciplinary cases decline sharply

(10/24/06 9:00am)

Fewer than 430 disciplinary cases were recorded last year, over 200 less than in 2004 -- 2005 and the lowest number in the last six years, according to the recently released Annual Report to the Community of the Dartmouth Undergraduate Disciplinary System. The report also indicates a large decrease in the number of alcohol and drug related cases over previous years.

Messud exceeds expectations with 'Emperor's Children'

(10/24/06 9:00am)

Claire Messud's new book "The Emperor's Children" could very well be subtitled "Great Expectations." The novel, which was released to impressive critical acclaim, interweaves the stories of three friends who first met as talented, promising undergraduates at Brown University (a very fashionable alma mater for fictional characters nowadays) and who have since pursued professional success in the whirl and dazzle of New York City.
