Paving their Paths

(10/09/09 2:00am)

Although women only began graduating from the College slightly more than 25 years ago, some Daughters of Dartmouth have already reached prominence in a multitude of fields including entertainment, government and business (no pressure, '10s who have recently littered the corporate world with your resume droppings).





Editors' Note

This week's issue of The Mirror focuses on the daughters of Dartmouth, the first of whom were only admitted in 1972. At the time, members of the College who were against coeducation saw it to be in direct opposition with the traditions that Dartmouth held so dearly. Thirty-seven years later, Dartmouth has a long list of notable female alumnae, a slightly larger percentage of females than males in the '13 class, and 11 sororities all of which speaks to how far the institution has come.


The Coed Conundrum

(10/09/09 2:00am)

In the fall of 1972, Dartmouth welcomed its first female students under coeducation. Around 200 women matriculated as freshmen along with over 1,000 men. Some women would later recall this day as the beginning of one of the most fun and exciting times of their lives. For others, however, memories are not so pleasant.

Dartmouth, working with the RAND Corporation and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, has launched a new center dedicated to increasing Americans' financial literacy. The U.S. Social Security Administration will funnel more than $3 million to the center over the next year to fund programs that teach the public about savings and retirement strategies, according to a RAND press release. Dartmouth economics professor Annamaria Lusardi, who will direct the program, said in the release that Americans currently lack the skills and resources needed to make informed decisions about saving money.





SEMP review has 10-year history

(10/09/09 2:00am)

The College's ever-changing alcohol policy has evolved significantly since the days when pickup trucks full of kegs regularly supplied Greek houses, and students rather than Safety and Security officers were tasked with monitoring Greek events. The new committee charged with reviewing Dartmouth's Social Event Management Procedures, which regulate alcohol use at social events, will have to reckon with more than a decade of Dartmouth history and past policy.

College Democrats at Dartmouth and other colleges and universities nationwide held events to observe "Health Care Action Day" on Wednesday, according to College Democrats of New Hampshire communications director Ryan Tincher '12. The event, which originated at Dartmouth, was designed to prompt discussion about the current health care debate, Tincher said. Dartmouth College Democrats showed Michael Moore's "SiCKO" and held a discussion about the film. The College Democrats also organized a "cookies for calls" event, at which students called the office of Sen. Judd Gregg, R-N.H., to ask that he vote for the health care legislation proposed by President Barack Obama.
