I worked as editor-in-chief of The Dartmouth for a year. In this position, I directly managed a leadership team of 18 editors as well as a 220-person editorial staff. I edited all editorial content, from breaking news to long-term investigative features, before publication. I planned and oversaw special features on sexual violence, Dartmouth's Greek life and campus traditions.

University and guidance counselors attribute the rise to a strong and loyal brand within the state and outreach to potential applicants over the course of their high school years.
Leaders at the state's schools are trying to determine which of their students were directly affected by Trump's order, but urged all students who are citizens of the seven countries to remain inside the U.S. as interpretations of the order continued to shift.
Many college leaders, faculty and students feared it would cause gun violence and intimidation, especially in the classroom. But universities across the state have seen nothing of the kind.

The university says the fraud appears to be the work of a longtime administrator in the department and its chairman, Julius E. Nyang'oro, who led African-American studies here for nearly two decades. Many of the students who were involved in the questionable classes were athletes.
