Lively also said that more students have left on their own terms than have been asked to leave by the College, deciding they would rather not live on campus after finding the College’s COVID-19 guidelines “too isolating or too stringent.”
“That makes things confusing, too, if we then released that number, and then people start pointing fingers trying to figure things out,” Lively said.
And . . .
“I'm really at a loss as to why students and parents are so curious about how many people there have been whose privileges have been revoked,” Lively said.
Here's why, from the same story:
(Paul Hager ’22) also noted that he thinks access to this data, particularly if it shows a high rate of student removal, could inform both conversations around the College’s enforcement strategy, as well as students’ personal decisions on D-Plans or whether to be on campus in the first place.
In an earlier story in The Dartmouth headlined, Unknown number of students removed from campus for violating COVID-19 rules, Lively told the paper (LINK):
“The bottom line is, this really shouldn’t be that newsworthy.”
Green Alert Take: If my daughter was still at Dartmouth I'd darn sure consider it newsworthy!
Each night after the evening news Mrs. BGA and I watch a recording of that day's Jeopardy and we chuckled earlier this week when this clue came up: "The Hood Art Museum is an attraction in Hanover, a college town in this state."
At the end of the recording of Jeopardy there's usually the first five minutes or so of Wheel of Fortune, at which Mrs. BGA is ridiculously good. (I'll stick with Jeop, thank you very much.)
Anyway, last night after watching Jeopardy and the first Wheel clue we went to "live" TV and Wheel was still on with a puzzle in the category "On The Map." When all that was revealed was this:
S — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — —
Mrs. BGA shouted, "Sleepy Hollow New York."
Yup, she was right. She does it all the time. It's actually scary.
I've teased her that she should try out for the show and, as someone who is almost never embarrassed (a wonderful quality she inherited from her dad), she said she'd do it – although my guess is she never will.
Watching the first clue and introductions on Wheel, we laugh all the time at how contestants refer to their wonderful, handsome, marvelous, beautiful, incredible etc. spouse.
Mrs. BGA has promised that if she were ever to go on the show she'd refer to me as her "very mediocre" husband.
Win, lose or draw, that would make it worthwhile!
