Dartmouth President James Wright received the lowest compensation of any Ivy League president, earning $569,761 for the 2006-2007 school year, according to a Chronicle of Higher Education survey released Monday. Wright's salary does, however, make him the highest paid private college president in New Hampshire, The Nashua Telegraph reported. The average Ivy League president made just under $900,000 that year, according to the survey. Columbia University President Lee Bollinger was the highest paid president in the Ivy League with a total compensation of $1,411,894 and Ohio State University President E. Gordon Lee was the highest paid president of a public research university, with a total compensation of $1,346,255. There are 82 presidents at non-Ivy League private institutions that make $500,000 or more a year, according to the Yale Daily News.

Even as an avid fan of "Idol," I can count on my fingers and toes the number of times Cowell has given positive feedback during his six-year reign on the show. David Archuleta, whose self-titled debut album "David Archuleta" (2008) was released on Nov. 11th, evoked rare praise from Cowell during "Idol's" seventh season: "You have so many things going for you," Cowell said. "You're young, you're good looking, you're likable, and you've got a great voice. That's not a bad place to be, is it?"

Ask A Friend

Not surprisingly, the presidential election permeated every aspect of our lives in the weeks leading up to it. Students shirked their homework to phone-bank, canvass or just watch hilarious videos of Tina Fey dressed up as Sarah Palin. Alice Zhao '12's recent column ("Red States, Blue States," Nov. 14) certainly reflects the level of activity and involvement that we have in our political system. Anybody looking outside their window on campus right after the results were announced would attest to this: Hordes of Obama supporters screamed and ran over the sidewalks that they had chalked with political messages just hours earlier.
