Presidential Generosity

This little gem popped up in the final paragraph of an article about the upcoming Men's Soccer match against Boston College.

Admission for Dartmouth students has been paid for by President Wright but students will need to show a Dartmouth ID.


I can't decide whether this is a bit of hyperbolic fluff or a last-ditch effort to get on everybody's good side at once.

Rather than post some snide comment, why don't you do some research. The NCAA requires that admissions be charged for everyone attending a playoff game. As he has done in the past in these situations, President Wright made it possible for any Dartmouth student to attend the game at no cost to the student. It seems to me this is an act of generosity on the part of President Wright, and characteristic of his long standing support for Dartmouth athletics and Dartmouth students.

And he's leaving anyway -- this is the one time when he doesn't need to curry favor.

So did Wright pay for this out of his pocket, as the press release implies, or did he just order that students be admitted for free?

This kind of notice has been posted in the past at various athletic events....

Did George Bush pay for the Iraq war becasue he ordered our guys to attack?

There are a lot of good reasons to criticize Wright's tenure as President (SLI debacle/embarassment is my favorite, and as a govy major, the persistently overcrowded classrooms were another favorite gripe). But he's a very good person and he's quite generous. These kinds of personal efforts have been consistent throughout his time as President and have, in their own small way, been a nice reminder that on some direct level Dartmouth can still be a small college.

Wright has done this for years. The money comes from the office's discretionary budget.

Post-season tournaments generally require all attendees to be paid - the ECAC hockey conference tournaments are the usual example, but NCAA events are the same way.

Basically, the President's Office picks up the tab for all student attendees at these events when they are on campus. It used to be $4 / person for ECAC hockey, it could be $5 these days. I'm guessing the NCAA is similar.

Say, could Dartlog interview the braniacs behind the new law suit and ask them why they think having litigation hanging over the Board could make Dartmouth more attractive for a potential president?

Inquiring minds would also like to know which 2.5 trustees these people think they can elect.

Thank you,
Reader

It sounds like the College is paying for the student tickets, not President Wright. Yes?

This is not a knock on him, or anyone, other than perhaps the less-than-comprehensive reporting by the D.

Ben said...

Yes it's the college's money, as it comes out of the College President's discretionary budget.

So yeah, if The D made it sound like Wright personally paid for it, then they made a bad inference. It's his office that pays for such things.

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 player more control over the character.
