College Alcohol Stats?
This space has frequently cited comparative statistics at colleges and universities regarding the enforcement of the underage drinking laws. Here’s where to find the information on your own: Go to the U. S. Department of Education’s Office of Postsecondary Education Campus Security Data Analysis Cutting Tool.
Enter the name of the institution that interests you, hit enter, then click on the part of the institution for which you want data (i.e. Main Campus). Then click on Arrests and Disciplinary Actions as below:
Up will come data that the institutions themselves have provided to the Department of Education under the provisions of the Clery Act. Compare Dartmouth’s enthusiastic enforcement of the drinking laws with the understanding tolerance of your friends’ schools.
Note that not one single Middlebury student was pinched by the local constabulary in the years 2005-2007 for underage drinking. Not a single one. During the same time period, 219 Dartmouth students were arrested by the Hanover Police, and the D reports today that in 2008, a further 77 Dartmouth students were arrested. We’ll have more information on Middlebury’s policy in the coming days.

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…
