Winter Carnival Issue is Online

Don't miss out on reading the issue. Articles include




Edit: The wasteful expenditures piece was not an expose but rather an editorialized article.

I'm surprised that Mr. Heddaya allows that counseling services "are essential to the core functions of the College."

I didn't see a lot of spending in the article that was "shockingly" "exhorbitant" etc. Why not tell the reader what the facts are rather than what one's personal reaction to them is? If the spending really is so shocking, the reader will experience the same reaction without being instructed to do so.

As it stands now, the reader has to take the writer's word for the fact that all food at Dartmouth is "greasy" and overpriced. I wonder whether that kind of obviously inaccurate and overbroad generalization makes the article more or less convincing.

On the contrary.

While the editor-in-chief's editorial was unfortunately quite disappointing, Mr. Heddaya seemed spot-on to me.

If you don't like to see money wasted, you shouldn't be in college. It's that simple.

foco sucks, what did you learn about the administration that was "shocking"? All I learned is that *Heddaya* finds some things (about which he tells little) "shocking" or "exhorbitant."

There is nothing "spot-on" about an editorial that collects conclusory value judgments instead of providing the allegedly shocking facts themselves. I wish Heddaya had actually exposed something in his "expose" instead of just giving the same semi-hysterical opinions that a lot of students share.

Well I'm no foco fan, and I'm surprised anyone can be. Close to 10 dollars a meal for nothing more than cafeteria food is pretty sad. i bet foco fan here thinks EBAs is fine dining too.

True insight from the Editor-in-Chief of the Dartmouth Review:

"Canoodling is not sexual assault."

Good thing the editorial was used to defend the antics of loose sorority girls rather than, you know, talk about issues that anyone other than tri-delt cares about....

@foco fan:

as harvard and MIT have learned, the availability of counseling is pretty important as far as preventing (and mitigating legal liability for) student suicide/depression
