Last winter, I interviewed five of the nuns I had known throughout my years of Catholic schooling for a class project.

Daily Debriefing

(11/11/09 4:00am)

Student Assembly is currently working to create an updated version of the student survey used before last year's budget cuts, Student Body President Frances Vernon '10 said at Tuesday night's Assembly meeting. The survey is intended to help the College as it seeks to outline budget cuts in the wake of this weekend's announced target for budget reduction. "We will hopefully be able to make recommendations as to what is essential to keep, what can be cut, and what should be restructured," Rebecca Hellerman, spokesperson for Student Assembly, told The Dartmouth. Hellerman said she believed College administrators were "receptive" to the results of last year's survey, citing the negative student body response to Lone Pine Tavern and its subsequent closing. Student Assembly will finish updating the survey within the next few weeks, Hellerman said.

(11/11/09 4:00am)

Just three months into her first official term as Student Body President, Frances Vernon '10 has made progress toward checking off several of the major goals outlined in her campaign including large-scale changes to the Organization Adjudication Committee.
