Double X Chromosome Probation: When it comes to pledging rituals, College says \"no girls allowed\"

(10/12/07 5:39am)

It is very obvious when young men join certain frats. New membership is not quite as obvious among sororities, however. Not necessarily because sororities choose not to make it so, but rather because as women, the members of these groups don't always have the choice. Since I have been spending the last couple of days locked up in my sorority between 6 p.m. and 3 a.m. (gotta love rush), I have had a lot of time to reflect upon Dartmouth's Greek system and in particular the way in which the College interfaces with Greek houses of different sexes. And it's just not fair. Sororities, both local and national, are subject to much stricter surveillance by the College than their male (local and national) counterparts.

Daily Debriefing

Tagg Romney, the eldest son of Republican presidential candidate Mitt, visited the College Thursday to stump for his father. Tagg Romney arrived in the "Mitt Mobile," the custom-painted RV in which Mitt's five sons are touring key primary states, and first met with the Dartmouth chapter of Students for Mitt. "I was impressed with the chapter," he said. "There's a good campaign on campus." Tagg Romney spoke to the students about his father's business background and tenure as the governor of Massachusetts. He also related several personal stories about childhood experiences with his father. After speaking, Tagg remained to host a pizza lunch and greet individual students. He then addressed a class at Tuck School of Business. The five brothers and the Mitt Mobile will remain in the area until Thursday.

Wright: U.S. needs new GI bill for vets

(10/12/07 4:47am)

"[I]n the midst of the debate over troop levels, exit strategies, and assessment of the war's progress, we have lost sight of the men and women who are fighting this war," College President James Wright wrote in an op-ed column published in the Boston Globe Saturday. In the op-ed, he focused on the need for a reincarnation of the 1944 GI Bill that funded college education of World War II veterans.

Football analysis: Will a 40-point loss ruin an entire season?

(10/12/07 4:19am)

Big Green Football went on the road to Yale with high hopes. Fresh off an emotional close-call victory over Penn, Dartmouth football seemed on the verge of establishing itself as perhaps one of the Ivy League's better squads. In light of the newfound hope that had emerged from all the action prior to this weekend, the results of Saturday's game could not have been more disappointing.

The Glove

If last week 1-2 never felt so good, then 1-3 this week feels much worse. After beating Penn for the first time in 11 years a week ago, Dartmouth football was on the wrong end of a 50-10 thrashing that was broadcast all throughout New England. While the Big Green must be disappointed, losing to Yale is nothing to be ashamed of. Yale features a Walter Payton Award Finalist in Mike McLeod, the star senior running back who appears unstoppable this season, and Yale is nationally ranked in the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS), or as I like to call it, the Division formerly known as 1-AA. Make no mistake: This is a good Dartmouth football team, the best I have seen in my four years here, but they have yet to join the Ivy League elite. But they are well on their way.
