Panhell Responds to B@B Poster
The leadership of the Panhellenic society has written to the campus:
Addendum: A few years ago I wrote a brief post on the subject of assault. It included the following:
One other query that I have had concerns the nature of women’s response on campus to the problem of assault. Have no doubt that it is a problem. The first time that an undergraduate friend — a trusted, reliable one — described the frequency of ugly events that had occurred to people in her circle of acquaintances, I was profoundly shaken. Subsequent accounts from similarly situated people have had the same effect. Why don’t women do more to combat the problem? The efforts of the Panhellenic Society to boycott fraternities that don’t sufficiently investigate accusations of assault are a start. But have they been effective? I was surprised at the controversy that they caused.
Let’s flip things around for the purpose of analysis. Imagine that a slightly built fraternity brother was plied with liquor and then sexually assaulted by a member of a gay organization, perhaps someone living in the College’s planned LBGT housing? How would the fraternity brothers of the aggrieved student respond?

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…
