Q&A with College Republicans chairman Daniel Bring ’21

(05/24/19 6:00am)

In the past year, the College Republicans have hosted events with conservative figures such as Herman Cain, Dinesh D’Souza and David Horowitz.

Daniel Bring ’21 is the chairman of Dartmouth’s College Republicans chapter, an organization he joined during his freshman fall. In the following interview, Bring addresses these speakers, as well as the evolution of the College Republicans organization on campus, the experiences of conservatives at a left-leaning school and a recent guest column in The Dartmouth by a former College Republicans treasurer arguing that the organization no longer respects open discourse.

Amid a nationwide increase in cases challenging results of college-led sexual misconduct investigations, last month, the College responded to the most recent case challenging its own disciplinary process.

From April 19 to May 3, students of diverse identities witnessed this display of unity — an unfamiliar sight to previous graduating classes at the College.
