Coming Soon: No-Sex Saturdays
Michael Ellis reports on efforts to boycott Dartmouth’s fraternities on Friday nights, adorably dubbed ‘Frat-free Fridays.’ Hill Wind Journals, meanwhile, elaborates: “The idea is that if women avoid the frats in massive numbers tonight, we can demonstrate in a very tangible way that we are integral to the social scene on campus and should be treated better if they want us to stick around.”
The missive is in the extended.
Tomorrow we have the chance to make a powerful statement about how we influence the fraternity scene on campus.
BY NOT GOING TO THEM.
I urge you to inspire your members not to go to fraternities tomorrow night for Frat-Free Friday. Use whatever means necessary — threats, references to women’s lib, bribes, peer pressure — whatever it takes.
I know it’s hard for some to fathom not participating in frat life — but emphasize that it’s just ONE NIGHT and that it this is a quick and easy way for the men on this campus to realize that WE are an integral part of their social scenes and that we don’t have to take part when we have each other!!
Solidarity is key.
We represent organizations full of unique, diverse, INCREDIBLE Dartmouth women. Let’s show off just how UNITED we are.
Let’s really do this.
Please blitz your members, do what works for you and spread the inspiration!!!!!
*and the NAD House is totally allowed!!!
**Sig Delt is gunna rock!!!!!

When Love Beckoned in 52nd Street
We were at San Francisco’s BIX last evening, enjoying prosecco, cheese, and a bit of music. A full year of inhabitation in Northern California has unraveled to me no decent venue for proper lounging, but…

D Afraid of a Little Competish
So our colleague and Dartblog writer Joe Asch informed me that the D has rejected our cunning advertising campaign. Uh-oh. The Dartmouth is widely known as a breeding ground for instant New York Times successes,…

How Regents Should Reign
As Dartmouth alumni proceed through the legal hoops necessary to defuse a Board-packing plan—which put in unhappy desuetude an historic 1891 Agreement between alumni and the College guaranteeing a half-democratically-elected Board of Trustees—it strikes one…
