• Both the offices of Residential Life, Safety, and Security and Judicial Affairs will be responsible for monitoring and carrying out consequences for students found with hard alcohol.
• Students over the age of 21 will be required to submit to this new policy if they live on campus.
• The New York Times reports that Dartmouth will also draft a code of conduct for all fraternities, sororities and other groups to commit to in order to remain within the fabric of Dartmouth's student life. According to USA Today, Dartmouth has not yet finalized the process or the consequences for students who have been found with hard alcohol in their possession. What is clear, though, is that Dartmouth is taking its issues very seriously and sensitively. It’s important to recognize, though, that these problems aren’t exclusive to Dartmouth. Rather, they’re a problem for every college campus. Whatever behavior students choose to engage in, they should not take for granted their safety or well-being. And Dartmouth has proved that. Anything can happen on a campus, whether it’s big or small, Greek or non-Greek. Students should set up a sort of “buddy system” when they attend social events, hold each other accountable when their grades or attendance start slipping because of their social life and be a support system for those friends who do experience something traumatic as a result of someone else’s inappropriate behavior. After all, a college campus isn't just a hub for learning; it's a community.
