PB faces varied complications in programming big-ticket shows

(11/20/06 11:00am)

It is easy to hate the Programming Board. Really, it is not even original anymore. The ubiquitous name "Programming Board" is tacked onto everything from concerts to Bingo Night, but most people have no idea what they do or how they work. By booking diverse acts that run the gamut, from the sensitive pop crooner Vanessa Carlton to the art-hop band the Roots to the "emo" Dashboard Confessional, is everyone really having fun? Many have raised this question ever since the surprising choice of Vanessa Carlton last year. It turns out that the answer is not so simple.

(11/20/06 11:00am)

Student productions are one of Dartmouth theater's best-kept secrets. Unfortunately, these excellent plays are all too often overshadowed by the (also excellent) mainstage productions, with which they tend to run concurrently. Students who did not catch the gem of a play that rocked the low-key Warner Bentley Theater this weekend missed quite a show.

(11/17/06 11:00am)

After an amazing come-from-behind win last weekend at the Yale Bowl, Princeton (8-1, 5-1 Ivy) has muddled the championship picture. A Yale win in that game would have secured the Ivy title for the Bulldogs, but after taking the game 34-31, the Tigers are now assured of at least a share of the Ivy League title if they can defeat Dartmouth (2-7, 2-4 Ivy) on their home field.

Leadership in Limbo

(11/17/06 11:00am)

While anecdotal evidence and exit surveys report accurate high levels of student satisfaction with the Dartmouth experience, a sudden and vast College leadership void has affected many areas of campus. Though search committees are in place for many of the several administrative vacancies, a lack of leadership has exacerbated the usual student-administrative divide on campus.
