He expects that these students will receive their authorization by Monday, and will thus be able to immediately begin their internships.
Over 1,000 individuals have signed a petition addressed to College President Phil Hanlon and the Board of Trustees expressing frustration over long processing times for international students’ federal work authorizations and calling for support and curricular reform from the College.

Dartmouth offers its athletes the opportunity to play at a competitive NCAA level while engaging them in an academic community as rigorous as it is rewarding. Last week, a large number of Dartmouth’s athletic teams won Academic Progress Rate Public Recognition Awards — honors bestowed upon teams who land in the top 10 percent of APR’s scoring. APR rewards teams for maintaining high rates of “academic eligibility” and “retention” among their players. With 18 Big Green teams earning this award, Dartmouth tied Brown University, Columbia University and the College of the Holy Cross for the most teams honored.

Last month, the New Hampshire Supreme Court largely ruled in favor of Hanover in the case of New Hampshire Alpha of SAE Trust v. Town of Hanover. As part of that case, in April 2018, three Dartmouth fraternal organizations — Phi Delta Alpha Corporation, Zeta Association of Psi Upsilon and Trustees of Alpha Omega Chapter of Beta Theta Pi Fraternity — filed an amicus brief arguing that the town of Hanover unlawfully delegates governmental authority to the College, an abutter who may have a vested interest in obtaining Sigma Alpha Epsilon’s property. The Court’s ruling addressed this concern, but the existence of the amicus brief highlights a campus climate in which tensions remain high between the College administration and Greek organizations affected by the ruling.
