Though impersonating a presidential hopeful may seem like a James Bond-esque way to spend a Monday afternoon, the Dartmouth students serving as debate stand-ins left Spaulding Auditorium looking rather bored by their ordeal. Several students who responded to a campus-wide blitz functioned as “height-alikes” for specific candidates, while others sat in the chairs surrounding the table of mock candidates. Mojin Chen ’15 was eating in Collis when he was approached and asked if he would sacrifice a few hours of his time to be a stand-in. He agreed, harboring a secret hope that he might receive a ticket to today’s debate. Instead, he left Spaulding after 2.5 hours with only an empty Milk Duds box and sorely disappointed expectations.

Boston University's 4,300 first-year and transfer students received a personal telephone call from the school's administrators last week, The Boston Globe reported. Rather than calling about disciplinary actions or bad grades, administrators including the dean and provost of the university checked in on the students' initial adjustment to the college lifestyle. Students and professors alike have lauded this initiatve, and administrators at peer institutions have commended the Boston University administration in light of the fact that only 57 percent of students at four-year colleges graduate within six years, according to The Globe. The commonly reported problems of homesickness and roommate difficulties, combined with the financial demands engendered by the current economic climate, contribute to the large amount of stress in college freshmen, The Globe reported. Students reacted positively to the phone calls, and expressed their appreciation for the personalized contact via the Dean of Students Twitter page, according to The Globe.

After weeks of vocal student dissatisfaction and meal plan change cards, Dartmouth Dining Services Director David Newlove responded to student complaints about the increased price of the SmartChoice mealplan and the plan's logisitical problems at a heated panel on Monday night in the Paganucci Conference Room in the Class of 1953 Commons.

Last week I suggested that we have more home football games at night and an Ivy League championship game for the sport ("Through the Lens of Lentz," Oct. 4). Two weeks ago, I wrote on the need to change the Class of 1953 Commons ("Through the Lens of Lentz," Sept. 27). This week there will be more suggestions. There will be movie references. What would we have if the noner columnist had his druthers? Well, let's find out.
The Big Green (8-4-0, 3-0 Ivy) again got off to a slow start, surrendering the game's first goal 21 minutes in on a second-chance shot by Friars freshman Daniella Bernasconi.
Many claim that the 2012 presidential election will be the most important election in a generation, but doesn't everyone always say that about every election? Yes, but this time around it might actually be true.
On this year's National Coming Out Day, an annual occasion to celebrate and build support throughout the LGBT community, I think back on my own experience. The memory replays as vividly as a film I'm perched across from my sister, swaying anxiously as if carried by waves, and I felt seasick. What brought me to this moment was nearly a lifetime of guilt, confusion and dread, but my pain had finally crossed some threshold. "I'm gay." The words scraped and stuck to the back of my throat like swallowed shards of glass, but I was beginning to taste the sweetness of freedom.
