Gov. Rick Perry, R-Texas, and his family met students and Hanover residents at two events hosted by Greek organizations on Tuesday. Perry's son, Griffin Perry, visited Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity on Tuesday afternoon to promote his father's campaign and speak with students. During a brief speech, the governor's son said his father believes that entrepreneurs are the solution to creating jobs, and will "actually do something about this economy." The event, attended by approximately 70 students and community members, was co-hosted by Alpha Xi Delta sorority. Beta Alpha Omega fraternity hosted Rick Perry in a post-debate event on Tuesday event. In a short speech, Perry said strengthening the economy would be his first priority as president and that he would use the country's natural resources to lessen the country's dependence on foreign oil. The audience erupted in applause after Perry promised to generate new jobs in the energy sector, and again after he took a jab at President Barack Obama. Perry wound his way through the crowd of about 100 individuals following his speech, as he shook hands, autographed campaign signs, introduced himself to students and established points of commonality by sharing personal college anecdotes. Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority and SAE cosponsored the event.
Both undecided and staunchly partisan students navigated the rooms of Silsby Hall and the Rockefeller Center during a campaign meet and greet on Tuesday afternoon. Campaign volunteers and managers from all eight of the debating Republican presidential candidate's campaigns shared the political ideologies and action plans of their respective candidates at the event, which was sponsored by the Rockefeller Center.
A panel of educators and leading journalists discussed the economy, President Barack Obama's chances of re-election and the merits of Republican presidential candidates' platforms in Moore Theater prior to Tuesday's Republican presidential debate. College Trustee Morton Kondracke '60 moderated the discussion, titled "Leading Voices: What's at Stake in the Republican Debate."
Gov. Chris Christie, R-N.J., a Tea Party leader who has fielded rumors of a presidential run for months, endorsed former Gov. Mitt Romney, R-Mass., for the Republican presidential nomination Tuesday afternoon at the Courtyard Marriott in Lebanon. Christie's endorsement which was announced just hours before the College-sponsored presidential debate was set to begin at 8 p.m. may benefit Romney by enhancing his conservative credentials and increasing his fundraising potential, according to government professors interviewed by The Dartmouth.
Speaking to a room of political supporters packed into the Daniel Webster Room at the Hanover Inn, Democratic National Committee Chairwoman and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., reiterated her support for President Barack Obama in the minutes leading up to the GOP debate in Spaulding Auditorium, where Republicans would take the stage and with it, the spotlight, from the Democratic Party.
As part of a pre-rally event, the College's chapter of the Student Global AIDS Campaign arranged a Skype session with the Rwandan Minister of Health Agnes Binagwaho, who discussed the need for awareness and education about HIV/AIDS issues.
While the Republican presidential candidates discussed their plans to address the struggling U.S. economy in Spaulding Auditorium, reporters from publications across the world gathered in the Hopkins Center to cover the debate. Sitting at 12 rows of tables placed in front of 13 flat-screen televisions streaming the action live, reporters worked during and after the debate to capture each candidate's views and their significance in the broader context of the primary race and the 2012 general election.
The watch party's doors opened at 5:30 p.m., and the audience enjoyed performances and brief addresses from students representing campus political groups until the debate began streaming live from Spaulding Auditorium at 8 p.m. Two screens hung from the arena's ceiling, allowing students sitting on either side of the open area to view the candidates. Although the six front rows of one side of Leede were reserved for campaign VIPs, those seats remained empty throughout the entire debate.
The discussion centered largely on the debate performance of former Gov. Mitt Romney, R-Mass., who many of the show's guests agreed had commanded the debate. The politicos also talked about the responses from Gov. Rick Perry, R-Texas, and businessman Herman Cain.
Romney, who currently leads the polls, presented himself as the most likely candidate to beat President Barack Obama in the general election, and continued to tout his experience in the private sector as a beneficial background for a leader who will need to pull the country out of an economic recession. Romney whom conservative leader Gov. Chris Christie, R-N.J., endorsed just hours before the debate held firm on previously controversial statements on China and his health care vision for the state of Massachusetts. His opponents recognized his frontrunner status, purposefully singling Romney out during the portion of the debate in which they were able to direct questions at each other. Five candidates centered their questions on Romney, as Cain challenged his 59-point economic plan. Romney quickly outlined seven "pillars" leading to economic recovery, which include amending tax policy and establishing "human capital" institutions.

Nibbi, who is a member of the Dartmouth cycling team, finished 32nd overall out of 155 runners. Nibbi said he decided to participate in the Saharan Race after hearing about it online and from friends.
It is undeniable that Shel Silverstein's poetry was a hallmark of most grade-school reading lists. I remember thoughtfully penning a language arts essay about the importance of gratitude and "The Giving Tree," proudly drawing my own "Boa Constrictor" in art class and coyly reciting "I Cannot Go To School Today" to my mother to try to escape a particularly terrifying second-grade swim test.
In the past, students involved in theater have lamented the inaccessibility of performance spaces for student-initiated productions student groups have been forced to use outdoor spaces subject to fluctuating weather conditions and seek out alternative venues in residence halls and elsewhere. The Dartmouth theater department's new initiative, YOUR SPACE, ushers in a higher level of support for groups such as the Rude Mechanicals, a student-run group that performs the works of William Shakespeare, and other student-led theater initiatives.
As an Admissions Office intern and a member of the LGBTQA community, I am disappointed by Roger Lott's ignorant misrepresentation of LGBTQA recruitment at Dartmouth and his implied desire to match the number of incoming students who identify as such to national demographics expressed in his Monday column ("Learning to Live Together," Oct. 10).
I have already read one book for pleasure this term, which amounts to one more book than last year. But the important part of this story is the book itself.
Trevor Nibbi '13 finished 32nd overall in the Saharan Race, a 250-kilometer run across the Saharan Desert.
