On The Vagina Dialogues

(10/11/07 3:45am)

After reading both Lee Cooper '09's ("Eating In," Oct. 9) and Zachary Gottlieb '10's ("Zach's Guide to Fellating Upperclassmen," Oct. 9) columns, I couldn't help but shake my head. First, because of the notable difference in how both men chose to word their responses to Aurora Wells' column ("Aurora's Guide To Eating Out," Oct. 5), and secondly because I realized that, no matter how much we try, there are still people out there who are not ready to hear a woman discuss sexuality so openly and "vulgarly."

Accepting Rejection

(10/11/07 3:45am)

Rejection: Thy sweet nectar never tasted so divine. Rejection is a typical part of the Dartmouth experience, since organizational elections, applications for various programs and late nights in frat basements will at one point or another make 98 percent of Dartmouth students feel the sting of the generic rejection blitz (41 percent of all statistics are made up on the spot). I certainly can't remember all the things I've been rejected from.

Overdue COS Reform

(10/11/07 3:41am)

The Committee on Standards Task Force, of which I am a member, and which has supported this op-ed, welcomes the news that Acting Dean of the College Dan Nelson has decided to reverse his past decision to delay consideration of the task force's proposals until a permanent dean assumes office in January ("Nelson to Convene New COS Committee," Oct. 5). This newspaper reported that Nelson will authorize the creation of a COS review committee immediately. While we welcome this appropriate reversal of Nelson's past decision, we question why Nelson waited until now -- when all but one of the task force members have graduated -- to reverse his past decision, and we hope that Nelson will fulfill his promise of involving task force members in the COS review process. Furthermore, we urge those people who make up the review committee to be fully aware of the need to improve COS in light of the findings and recommendations found in the task force report.

Daily Debriefing

(10/10/07 4:32am)

The Rockefeller Center extended its gratitude to student volunteers for their hard work in the Democratic presidential candidates debate during a dinner held in their honor Tuesday night in Hinman Forum. Rockefeller Center Director Andrew Samwick thanked the attendees for their hard work on the Sept. 26 event. More than 220 students volunteered hours of their time for the event, running the logistics surrounding the 90-minute debate that fell on the first day of classes and turned Hanover into a veritable media frenzy.

Former Irish president talks rights

(10/10/07 4:29am)

Robinson, in her Montgomery Fellow lecture, spoke on issues including women's rights and the use of torture as a matter of global security. She drew anecdotes and insight from her various experiences as a lawyer, president and chair of the United Nations Human Rights Commission, as well as her involvement in other human rights organizations, to illustrate the issues that face society today.

The Two Faces of the Fraternity

(10/10/07 4:11am)

Deceived by my own naivete, I once thought of Dartmouth as the utopia that many of us craved to become part of when leaving high school. I somewhat foolishly believed that human corruption withered away as it entered the community of this idyllic Ivy League school. Dartmouth, to me, represented intellect and acceptance, and I decidedly believed it to be a little more "perfect" than the real world. I did not realize that Dartmouth, just as any other place, has its pros and cons. I had yet to learn that imperfections and defects can be distinctly different, and that it is up to us to decide what to include into our own community.
