The time has come to elect our new Alumni Council Representative. Seven classmates have been nominated and are currently in the running, take a look at their blurbs below and click here to vote!
“My name is Adria Buchanan and I graduated Dartmouth in 2008. I am a dynamic individual and believe I do and can represent a large cross section of alumni. As a varsity volleyball player, NAACP club president, liaison of Casque and Gauntlet and an active member of the student community, my interests were varied, and I always stretched outside my comfort zone to support my peers. As part of the Alumni Council I would continue to be open minded, supportive, and dedicated to delivering the opinions of alumni. If you’d like an articulate, creative individual on this year’s board, please vote for me.”
“Some alumni would say that being an alumni council rep is just an excuse to visit Dartmouth without seeming like a creep alum. I see alumni council rep as an excuse to go back as well as a chance to make a change. While we love our college in the woods, I think we are also aware that there is room for improvement. I’ve worked as a go-between for Dartmouth students and the Dartmouth administration in the past as a Greek house president, and I’m confident that I will be able to use these skills to get the 08s’ concerns and thoughts heard. My sister was recently accepted as a member of the class of 2015, so I will also be in a position to hear the current student perspective on the issues being presented to the council. I hope that you will elect me to represent your voice over the next four years.”
“08’s, I love The Green. I’m published on the Board of Trustee’s contentious history. I can recite Webster’s closing arguments from Dartmouth v. Woodward and know all the verses of the Alma Mater. I love the BEMA, Billy Bobs, and tea time in Sanborn. I jumped in a frozen Occum, did Trip to the Sea, and survived morning drill. I’m ready to put my obsession with our school to good use. This spring, I graduate from Notre Dame Law School and will pursue environmental law. I am currently your Alumni Council Representative. Only one of these things is not true.”
“Dartmouth means everything to me. Since graduation, I have been working in lifescience consulting in Boston while pursuing a myriad of activities to stay involved with the College. I want to contribute further to the community in a tangible way – as the next Alumni Councilor for the Class of 2008. I am dependable, possess strong inter-personal skills, and have the drive to make Dartmouth a better place, all of which are essential to success in the AC. Rest assured that I will serve as your faithful representative over the next three years! Feel free to shoot me an e-mail with questions or thoughts.”
“I’m looking to get more involved with our class again and am psyched about the possibility of serving as our AC rep! Prior to entering the real world, I was vice president of our Class Council and communicated extensively with the administration as a Dean of the College intern. Since graduation, I’ve followed the debates and changes on campus through the D and opportunities to return to Hanover. I pledge to work hard to make sure that your ideas and concerns are shared with the Council and continue the great work Zack has done.”
“Hello, my name is David Lindenbaum. Throughout my Dartmouth career I played several club sports such as rugby and club hockey, and was vice president of Tri-Kap fraternity. However, my most rewarding position at Dartmouth was president of the Inter Fraternity Council my senior year. That year I was able to interact with the diverse groups that exist on the Dartmouth Campus such as the ICC, MAVs, and the Student Assembly, build bridges and affect positive change at Dartmouth College. As representative I would like the opportunity to again help affect change and represent all of your interests to the Alumni Council.”
“Hello 08s! I am accepting my nomination to be your Alumni Council representative. I have served as the Black Alumni of Dartmouth Association’s (BADA) Alumni Council representative since 2009, so I know the duties of the position and have thoroughly enjoyed performing them for BADA. As I am now the BADA Atlanta Regional Director, I want to be more involved with my beloved class to ensure I am connected to as many aspects of Dartmouth life as possible – hopefully I will get to do so through representing our class in the Alumni Council. Give a rouse!”
