Dartmouth students volunteer for presidential campaigns

As New Hampshire gears up to host the first-in-the-nation presidential primary, various campaigns have established themselves on campus in an effort to increase support for candidates. Student campaign volunteers can regularly be spotted at tables near Novack Cafe or on street corners around the Green in an attempt to attract grassroots support. 

Weld served as governor of Massachusetts from 1991 to 1997.

Before the policy talk, The Dartmouth sat down with the former governor to discuss his platform, which centers around climate action and deficit cuts from a fiscally conservative standpoint.

The College's endowment saw a return rate of 7.5 percent in the last fiscal year.
