An Alternative Phundraiser
It looks like Alpha Phi and Phi Delta Alpha’s efforts to raise money for cardiac research have survived the criticisms of the PC Police. Using GoFundMe.com, they have already taken in more donations than they had hoped to via the now-cancelled Phiesta. Dartmouth students can contribute with DASH here.
Congrats to both Greek houses for their persistence. However, allow me a little advice: next time people give you grief when you try to raise money for charity, tell your critics that they can go fund themselves.
Addendum: Rumors are flying around campus of an altercation last night between a radical student (RealTalk? Freedom Budget?) and a Phi Delt brother who had committed the sin of wearing a Phiesta t-shirt. Apparently the brother had a drink spilled on his insensitive shirt. It is unclear at this time if the College’s Bias Incident Response Team will be deployed to resolve the matter.

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…
