Welcome to another year of The Dartmouth.
In a report released yesterday, the College Committee on Alcohol and Other Drugs recommended that Dean of the College Lee Pelton ban kegs during the summer, reduce the number of kegs during the rest of the year and allow Safety and Security officers to patrol the basements of Greek houses during parties. If these recommendations are implemented, it will radically alter, and perhaps worsen, the campus social scene.
Expansion has been the persistent theme of Dartmouth's history. Ever since the College's first major building project -- the construction of Dartmouth Hall in 1791 -- buildings have been added almost every decade. The school that used to hold classes in Eleazar Wheelock's log cabin now sprawls over hundreds of acres.
When College President James O. Freedman took over Dartmouth's helm in 1987, the school's reputation was suffering, and the College's faculty, students and alumni were all at war with the administration. Ten years later, Freedman leaves a Dartmouth redefined.
David Rosenwaks '99 will appear in Lebanon District Court today to face a bizarre and puzzling charge. Rosenwaks and about 50 other male students were gathered in the Old Dartmouth Cemetery on Aug. 6, when three Hanover Police officers charged in and tried to arrest them. Many, maybe all, of the men were members of Theta Delta Chi fraternity, and some of them were drinking wine.
DDS has made a step in the right direction by incorporating student opinion in its newly announced changes.
The College should proceed with providing cable televi-sion installation to all residence hall rooms. While most dorms are currently wired, there are no immediate plans for providing students with a cable signal.
DarTalk needs substantial reorganization in order to better serve its customers, the students. Its current management isinconvenient, disorganized and the source of much frustration.
Students criticizing the changes Dartmouth Dining Services implemented for the Summer term must realize that cutbacks both in hours and services are a necessary and yearly response to decreased summer business.
For the past two weeks, anonymous posters and chalk graffiti have highlighted the issue of sexual assault and alleged that Greek houses degrade women and protect rapists. If the students responsible intended to engender dialogue about sexual assault, their intent has miscarried. By targeting the Greek system, they have obscured an issue that merits serious discussion.
As word spreads across campus that this year's Commencement speaker is Paavo T. Lipponen, the prime minister of Finland, many students will no doubt scratch their heads and say: "Paavo T. who?"
At a school where the student population is so academically driven and people always seem to be overextended, it is truly reassuring that there has been such an overwhelming response to DarCORPS -- the Dartmouth Community OutReach ProjectS.
After years of being ignored, students finally have a voice in the future of Dartmouth Dining Services. College Treasurer Lyn Hutton has said that the administration will honor the majority opinion expressed in a DDS referendum, which will be held today through Thursday on the World Wide Web. Students can and should stop the proposed non-refundable $800 meal plan, which would unfairly force unwilling students to patronize DDS establishments.
Dartmouth Up All Night, held last Friday night through Saturday morning in the Collis Center, epitomized what the phrase "alternative social option" should mean. Collis was packed with more than 1,000 people singing, dancing, watching movies, playing pool, Nintendo, mahjong, and doing myriad other activities. The event was groundbreaking because those in attendance truly represented Dartmouth's diversity, and a good time was had by all.
The election for next year's Student Assembly, Class Council, Green Key and Committee on Standards representatives begins today, and all undergraduates should vote.
In what has been a campaign devoid of much real debate, presidential candidate Frode Eilertsen '99 and vice presidential candidate Dave Altman '99 emerge from a rather unspectacular field as the two best people to lead the Student Assembly next year.
Last night's "roundtable discussion" of the proposed mandatory non-refundable $800 meal plan was not a discussion at all. Dartmouth Dining Services sponsored the event not to solicit opinion, but to create the illusion that management and the administration listen to student opinion.
A non-refundable $800 meal plan is unfair, unaffordable and inexcusable, and students should be up in arms against the proposal. Director of Dartmouth Dining Services Pete Napolitano has stated that DDS may require all students to pay a minimum of $800 per term to maintain quality and service. What other business has the luxury of forcing people to be their customers (DarTalk?)? In the real world, quality and service are incentive enough to attract customers. The DDS plan is extortion.
One of the traditional roles of the senior class at Dartmouth College has been to lead. From athletic teams to extracurricular organizations, seniors are typically the ones to blaze a trail for younger students to follow.
Today students can complete Dartmouth's P.E. requirement without ever leaving their seats.
