Take Pride in Your Work, Dave Newlove
DDS Director Dave Newlove has edited his LinkedIn page to remove his justifiably proud comments about his success in turning a profit on the backs of Dartmouth students. Dartblog does not begrudge him this success; he has limited freedom in fulfilling his role. Jim Kim; Stephen Kadish and the Trustees should bear the responsibility for putting the screws to Newlove, whose task it then becomes to unconscionably milk the Dartmouth student body.
As we saw the other day, the missing lines are as follows:
— Developed and completed aggressive restructuring program of Dartmouth’s Dining Services resulting in a record setting $1.3 million in net income in the 2010/11 fiscal year. $900 thousand in fiscal year 2009/10.
— Despite the economic recession, Dartmouth’s Dining Services experienced record profit, sales and customer counts during the last three fiscal years.
The end result of all this gouging? When you put tuition, room, board and fees together, Dartmouth is the second most expensive school in the Ivies. Given the low cost of living in rural New Hampshire — compared to Cambridge, Princeton, Philadelphia, et al. — this fact alone seals the case for gross financial mismanagement at the College.

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…
