Boston Globe: Hazing issue ensnares Dartmouth president
HANOVER, N.H. - When Jim Kim became president of Dartmouth College in 2009, he seemed like a good candidate to improve the school's alcohol-soaked student culture. Arriving with a sterling resume in public health and a knack for cultivating tradition-bound alumni, he launched nationwide collaborative studies of campus drinking, earning praise for his careful, evidence-based approach. Then came Andrew Lohse. A senior on leave this semester, Lohse confessed in an opinion article in the Dartmouth student newspaper Jan. 25 that over the years, and under Kim's nose, his brothers in the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity had been cruelly hazing pledges. Among the drunken initiation rites: a slosh through a kiddy pool of apparently feculent sludge and a meal of an omelet with regurgitated filling.

This past June, Nyiramasuhuko made headlines when she was found guilty by the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda for genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes. Refusing to learn from past experience, Munyenyezi's wayward defense strategy mistakenly hinges on her gender and her status as a mother to prove her innocence.
