A political concern

<p>Sorry for this stupid question, but I was wondering if Dart is as pc as brown is? In general, of course.</p>

<p>No its more middle of the road liberal, "Bill Clinton" liberals much more so than Ralph Nader liberals.</p>

<p>Are more conservative students shunned/ostracized at Dartmouth? Other schools?</p>

<p>Check out <a href="http://www.dartmouthreview.com%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://www.dartmouthreview.com&lt;/a> . It is the independent conservative voice at Dartmouth. </p>

<p>From their website:</p>

<p>The Dartmouth Review, founded by disaffected Daily Dartmouth staffers in 1980, is Dartmouth's only independent newspaper. Its alumni and alumnae include Dinesh D'Souza (of the American Enterprise Institute and the Hoover Institution), Hugo Restall (of the Wall Street Journal), James Panero (of the New Criterion), Laura Ingraham, and other notable conservative intellectuals.</p>

<p>The Dartmouth Review is published bi-weekly while Dartmouth is in session and distributed, for free, to all students living on campus (about 4,000). Additionally, about 10,000 alumni and supporters subscribe to The Dartmouth Review.</p>

<p>Additionally, the Review maintains dartlog.net, which is updated daily with the latest Dartmouth news, and dartreview.com, which publishes online the contents of the print edition.</p>

<p>What I wonder is if there is a libertarian/paleocon presence at Dartmouth. The traditional leftists and neocons are well represented, it seems. In the end, it doesn't matter much, if you can resist peer pressure.</p>

<p>Chris, Dartmouth is one of the only top schools that is incredibly tolerant to all view points. You will find people of all backgrounds and there isn't really the shunning that goes on at other campuses at all.</p>

<p>Cool, glad to hear it. I just got back from Dimensions (after oversleeping and missing my original bus/flight back, but everything worked out okay).</p>

<p>How was Dimensions? My daughter missed it, but she'd already decided to go to Dartmouth.</p>

<p>thanks guys for the responses!</p>


<p>worry not...I will take care of your daughter...</p>

<p>I am as paleocon as they come...however, at Dartmouth, I will be known as a "Jackson Democrat," as they are essentially the same thing. It just sounds better than saying, "I'm a Whig!"
Also, I won't have to worry about profs screwing me over b/c I'm conservative.</p>

Everyone pick up a copy...it's actually a respectable article!
Bad picture, though....</p>

<p>"How was Dimensions?"</p>




<p>There are few fathers who would take solace in that comment.</p>

<p>Hmm...I see your point.</p>

<p>Oh well. I'm still conservative, if that matters.
Plus, I'm from the South, so that's always good, right?</p>

<p>Where y'all from? We're in Orlando.</p>

<p>I'm from rural East Tennessee. How 'ya doin?</p>

<p>when i was at dartmouth for dimensions, it seemed that it was more a school for left leaning moderates with pockets of the extremes on either side.. but i couldbe completely wrong</p>

<p>I encountered people of all political persuasions at Dartmouth - I was pleasantly surprised by the number of conservatives I encountered. No matter what your ideological view is, I think you'll be fine if you're open to good-natured debate and discussion, as people seemed to enjoy ribbing each other as well as having more serious-minded discussions. What sums D's political nature up for me is the "warring dorm room door" I encountered down the hall from my host's room - numerous Bush and Kerry stickers from the election were duking it out up and down the door, but in a friendly/amusing way (please excuse my personification of election stickers).</p>

<p>That's what I consider myself, a left-leaning moderate. I just don't think I would fit in at a place that is ultra-liberal like Wes (leyan). I'm not sure how well I would fit into a place that is overrun by radicals</p>

<p>Historically conservativism and libertarianism has been part of dartmouth's image and rep, but it seems there are now those who would like dartmouth to become more of a Brown-clone.</p>

<p>I hope it doesn't happen; Dartmouth's rep for political/intellectual diversity is what I chose it for in the first place.</p>
