EVER WONDER WHAT HAPPENS

WHEN A DARTMOUTH STUDENT GETS IN TROUBLE?

Student Assembly Presents:

*********THE COS MOCK HEARING*********

MONDAY, OCTOBER 17
7-9 PM

TRI-KAP FRATERNITY
1 WEBSTER AVENUE

On Trial: Student Body President Noah Riner
Judged By: The REAL COS Committee

Followed by a discussion with April Thompson,
Director, Undergraduate Judicial Affairs Office
I'm assuming this will be a trial about the Convocation Speech. If not, this will probably be extraordinarily dull.

If it is, though, this is an amazingly insightful way to address this issue. Ideally, it will take both a serious look at what Riner actually did (and didn't do) and also put everything in a self-consciously ironic and self-deprecating light.

Let's just hope the evangelical blogs don't get a hold of this--they'll probably think it's real and that St. Noah is actually in danger.

  1. Nah, its not about that. SA wanted the students to understand what happens at COS hearings, so Noah, as SA prez, will be mock accused of plagiarism, or something.

  2. Not at all -- I'm sick of all of the attention Riner's been getting for such an unexciting, unimportant, unoriginal speech. If he didn't think he was Jesus before, he does now.
