Dartmouth Undergraduate Veterans Association

Inspired by a similar Tuck group, ten undergraduates have come together to create the Dartmouth Undergraduate Veterans Association (DUVA).
The group gathers about once a week to discuss issues ranging from homelessness among U.S. military veterans to more basic things like class schedules and dorm life. Generally, the veterans are a bit older than traditional undergraduates, and because of their experiences, they often approach the everyday stress of student life in different ways.

"I think we provide an official vehicle for talking about the needs and experiences of student veterans to the larger campus community," says Abe Holland '08, from Irasburg, Vt., a member of the U.S. Air Force who served in support of operations in Afghanistan. "We also provide support for new veterans coming to campus or thinking about coming to Dartmouth, and we hope we can facilitate discussions where non-veteran students and veterans can share perspectives."

This looks like a worthy group.

After graduation, do they get a seat on the Alumni Council?

Two seats now.

One for Navy/Marine vets, one for Air Force vets, and one for Army vets? Clearly the number of Council seats needs to be increased and the chamber expanded... as long as no more troublesome elections are required.

Two seats for each branch of the military - just like affiliated groups and grad schools.

Do any undergrad groups get seats on the Council? Why would they, if they are not alumni?

Any Dartmouth Alumni Veterans Association that jumps through the hoops will get a seat on the Alumni Council.

That's probably why he said "after graduation" dipshit.

I got to play Assassin's Creed which kind of disappointed me. There is some great work in there, great work. The art is fantastic...the levels in that game are huge. The free running things works really well and feels wow power leveling great to control, though after awhile the joy and awe kind of wares off. I hated the story...the whole setting kind of frustrated me. I was so completely looking forward to playing as an assassin during the Crusades. When I first heard the wow powerleveling concept for the game and awe the screenshots I was pretty jazzed. That excitement was quickly smothered when I found out I was a descendant of Altair and I was in a simulation. Great...a game within a game. That really kind of spoiled the whole thing for me. I played about halfway through the game before I completely stopped. I think the wow gold sequel that is inevitably going to get made will be pretty good...though I think they have kind f locked themselves into the whole genetic memory story thread. There is some really great stuff in that game, but the story, and combat really kind of killed it for me. The combat is still not that great of an improvement over the POP stuff. It is decent, but it feels like it could be so much better if they would just give the power leveling player more control over the character.
