Nova Robinson: Candidate Statement

Student government at Dartmouth abounds with the potential to positively influence the College experience of all students, but its current structure prevents it from achieving its potential.

The campus is different. I can't quite put my finger on it. Actually, yes I can. Sophomore summer is no longer; the air is colder, leaves are falling and the Class of 2008 is gallivanting around the globe.
