Vandermause: Glorifying Guzzling

(09/22/14 10:48pm)

College President Phil Hanlon is finally taking up arms against a sea of ugly press. Since the publication of the now infamous 2012 Rolling Stone exposé, Dartmouth has been rocked by unflattering media attention, including a 2013 New York Times article on Dartmouth’s handling of a “string of embarrassing episodes,” a slew of negative articles in the Huffington Post and a highly circulated media campaign by women’s rights group UltraViolet announcing that “Dartmouth has a rape problem.” The presidential steering committee, created nearly five months ago, has fielded ideas from students, faculty and alumni on the most effective ways to combat Dartmouth’s social maladies. This lengthy brainstorm is coming to a close; this past week, Hanlon met with Greek leaders. At the meeting, the group floated some solutions, which include a blanket ban on hard alcohol and the recent elimination of pledge term.

This spring, the Board of Trustees voted to raise tuition and mandatory fees by 2.9 percent.

Fraternities vote to abolish pledge term

(09/21/14 10:57pm)

Fraternities must abolish pledge terms for new members, members of the Interfraternity Council decided unanimously on Sunday night. The vote does not come with any new enforcement measures, IFC president Wil Chockley ’15 said, noting that College and government policies already ban hazing. Its student-driven nature, combined with a fear of system-wide retribution if a fraternity violates the policy, will contribute to its enforcement, fraternity presidents interviewed said.
