It's been a tumultuous spring semester at Dartmouth College, thanks to a highly publicized student protest and widely supported Clery Act complaint, both of which accused the college of mishandling violations of sexual assault, homophobia, and racism. Yesterday, Dartmouth responded by...charging undergrad protesters for rallying in a dining hall. Somehow, we're not surprised.
To recap: in April, a group of Dartmouth undergraduates interrupted a presentation for 550 accepted students to protest the above issues, among other grievances. Both administrators and fellow students were pissed, since it's not fab PR to tell prospies that the college they're considering has larger problems than a disappointing cafeteria salad bar. Some of the upset Ivy Leaguers responded by posting online death and rape comments about the protestors — a few suggested lynchings and public executions.
