A true bro, Lohse adds, can also drink inhuman amounts of beer, vomit profusely and keep on going, and perform a number of other hard-partying feats – Dartmouth provided the real-life inspiration for Animal House – that most people, including virtually all of Lohse’s high school friends, would find astounding. “No one has physically died at Dartmouth, yet, but the system destroys the souls of hundreds of students every year,” he says. The undergraduate chapter treasurer can give you specific information and explain how their dues system works. One brother recalls the night some of the pledges were served a scramble of vomit and eggs, known as a “vomlet.”, “Andrew kicked ass at pledge term, did everything required of him and then some,” one SAE brother says. “It’s all about the challenge,” says one of Lohse’s SAE brothers. A friend recalls walking into Lohse’s room one night to find a girl in his bed, alone, while Lohse was in bed with another girl down the hall. “You’re horrified at first, but then you get used to it,” says Lohse. Today, hazing is illegal in 44 states, including New Hampshire – and many colleges have aggressively cracked down on fraternity abuses. “Go!” Lohse chugged, but was only up to his third cup when time ran out.

I want to start by saying that Andrew Lohse, Ravital Segal, and all members past, present, and future of Dartmouth fraternities and sororities should never have to submit to the horrors of the hazing that Andrew and Ravi describe. Everyone knows that hazing goes on, but no one wants to discuss it – just like they don’t want to talk about racism, sexism, homophobia, classism.” She shrugs, apparently resigned to the situation. “The longer I stayed away, the less I drank,” he says, “and the less I felt like the person I was at Dartmouth.”. “He launched into a tirade about how I was a traitor,” Lohse recalls.

By the end of his pledge term, Andrew Lohse had vomited so much that the enamel on his teeth had largely burned away. “I would argue that making these issues front and center is a very positive thing to do.”, Telling none of his friends or fraternity brothers that he was in Hanover, Lohse presented the school officials with a “dossier of fraternity-hazing and substance-abuse-related information.” For well over an hour, he detailed his experiences and even named names; at one point, he showed the administrators a photo of his pledge class standing in front of a table holding more than 550 cups of beer, explaining that evening’s mission: to consume all of it. “The hypocrisy in that bothered me,” Lohse says. “Don’t forget who you are and don’t be consumed by who you think you are becoming,” he wrote. Make sure to leave a little room in your closet on move-in day. People do incredibly bad things to one another here, because they know they’re going to get away with it.”, That attitude of inherent entitlement often carries over after graduation.

Fan Page for the Dartmouth College Class of 1985! Sexual assault is rampant at Dartmouth; some female students say they circulate the names of men considered “dangerous” and fraternity houses viewed as “unsafe.” Between 2008 and 2010, according to the college’s official statistics, Dartmouth averaged about 15 reports of sexual assault each year among its 6,000 students. One fraternity reportedly beat their pledges; another was said to place them in dog crates while the brothers vomited on them. Lohse was charged with cocaine possession and witness tampering – a charge that he incurred for pouring a cup of beer on Aubart’s door and allegedly spitting on him in retaliation. Lohse remembers the intimidating feel of shirtless male bodies standing around him as he was interrogated in a brother’s room, where he was ordered to drink three shots and recite SAE’s three cardinal rules: What happens in the house stays in the house. Lohse doubts it. Unlike many schools, Dartmouth students don't rush until Sophomore year. Kim – who was recently nominated by the Obama administration to head the World Bank – was initially seen as a potential challenge to the status quo. Each chapter collects chapter dues from every member. Lohse, it was decided, was “disgruntled” and a “criminal.” His “blanket and bitter portrayal of the Greek system” was not only false, complained one alumnus, “but offensive to tens of thousands of Dartmouth alumni who cherished the memories of their fraternities.” Another alumnus put it this way in a mock letter to a human-resources manager: “Dear Hiring Manager, do yourself a favor: Don’t hire Andrew Lohse… He will bring disgrace to your institution, just as he did when he embarrassed Dartmouth and SAE.” The consensus, as another alum put it: “If you don’t want to be initiated, don’t pledge.”, Though two of Lohse’s SAE brothers have confirmed his allegations are generally on the mark, the fraternity has turned on Lohse, portraying him as a calculating fabulist who bought into the Greek system wholeheartedly and then turned against it out of sheer vindictiveness. Gender-Inclusive Greek Council . Title: The Dartmouth Freshman Issue 2020, Author: The Dartmouth Newspaper, Name: The Dartmouth Freshman Issue 2020, Length: 26 pages, Page: 8, Published: 2020-09-11 .

Their precise pungency is hard to describe: urine, vomit, stale beer and sour food, all combined in layers of caked sludge, which emits a noxious odor that can linger on your skin for days. His late grandfather, Austin Lohse, had played football and lacrosse for Big Green, and both Andrew and his older brother, Jon, a Dartmouth junior, idolized him as the embodiment of the high-achieving, hard-drinking, fraternal ethos of the Dartmouth Man, or what Lohse calls a “true bro.” A Dartmouth Man is a specific type of creature, and when I ask Lohse what constitutes true bro-ness, he provides an idealized portrait of white-male privilege: “good-looking, preppy, charismatic, excellent at cocktail parties, masculine, intelligent, wealthy (or soon to become so), a little bit rough around the edges” – not, in other words, a “douchey, superpolished Yalie.”. On January 25th, Andrew Lohse took a major detour from the winning streak he’d been on for most of his life when, breaking with the Dartmouth code of omertà, he detailed some of the choicest bits of his college experience in an op-ed for the student paper The Dartmouth.

We let the pledges’ imaginations get the best of them.” Lohse, for his part, hasn’t backed down. This year, the College is piloting a new recognition program … “That’s an inappropriate analogy,” she says. “I mean, I cut school to go to a John McCain rally.” But he knew he’d have to master his aversion to alcohol to gain any kind of traction. Trust the brotherhood. Be silent.” The boys dutifully did as they were told, grabbing ties to wrap around their eyes and following the older brother down the stairs and into a waiting car.

But it wasn’t really me. By Christmas, he’d recovered sufficiently to decide that he was ready to take the action his brother and friends had long advocated. “The difference between Andrew and his fraternity brothers was that most of the other brothers would try to justify their actions to themselves. “I made other pledges eat it! And that corporate milieu mirrors the fraternity culture.”, On a warm February afternoon, I visit Andrew Lohse at his mother’s house in Brattleboro, Vermont. The Thursday night of homecoming is SAE’s annual champagne formal, which Lohse attended, already drunk on red wine. “One step toward redemption is making amends,” says Bill Sjogren, a 1967 graduate of Dartmouth. It’s not inconceivable that it could happen – people get hurt all the time at Dartmouth. Spalding, Lohse says, “was aghast.”, But Lohse “still clung to the idea that things could be different without me having to be truly public” – in part, he says, to protect himself from the kind of retaliation Aubart endured after informing on Lohse and the other SAEs. One senior, who I’ll call Lisa, was “curbed” in this manner the second night of her freshman year. The first such society at Dartmouth, the Social Friends, was formed in 1783. Instead, Dartmouth became a college for wealthy white boys who adopted the Indian as their mascot and “Wah-hoo-wah!” as their war cry. For many in the Dartmouth community, this data-driven approach falls short. “They pick those who look like them,” he said. “We don’t expect to have solutions,” says Dartmouth spokesman Justin Anderson, “but what we will have is a ton of data and ways to measure the results.”. But one by one, I think a lot of his friends just gave up.”, By homecoming weekend, Lohse had descended to the darkest place he’d ever known. “If someone dies in a hazing incident next year, my saying ‘I told you so’ is not going to bring that person back. But Lohse also began to complain, quietly at first, to a few sympathetic older SAEs. He then proceeded to drink almost two bottles of champagne, followed by lots of bourbon and multiple beers. as in any rental housing arrangement. And the outcome will be what it is.”, Dartmouth has recently formed a new task force on hazing, the most recent addition to the multiple committees already addressing problems on campus.

In response, 1,000 irate students marched on Wright’s house and held protest rallies in which they accused the once-popular president, himself a Dartmouth alum, of treason. But instead, he’s proven to be just the opposite. Fines and damages may not be charged via college billing. “I saw my role as a reformer,” he says. “I was standing under this dripping pipe, looking at people drinking this watery Keystone Light beer, and I felt cheated,” he says. At Dartmouth, Adam was a major contributor and writer for the Dartmouth Review. In a way, he was relieved.

Most of the formal “hazing” was reserved for meetings and challenges: Pledges would be required to perform endless “quick sixes,” recite SAE’s creed, “The True Gentleman,” while lying in a kiddie pool full of ice, or take shots of mystery alcohol while being quizzed on arcane fraternity lore. Aubart called Dartmouth security, who notified the police. Dartmouth was one of the last of the Ivies to admit women, in 1972, and only in the face of fierce resistance from alumni. In the story he tells of this incident, Lohse was walking across the college green, near a roped-off area where the annual homecoming bonfire would be held the next night. Founded in 1769 by a Congregational minister, Eleazar Wheelock, its initial mission was to educate the local Abenaki Indians, a dream that was never realized. But Dartmouth, whose unofficial motto is “Lest the Old Traditions Fail,” has resisted that transformation, just as it has stood fast against many other movements for social and political progress.

Lohse channeled some of his rage by becoming a columnist for The Dartmouth, where he took on subjects like Dartmouth’s culture of corporate recruiting, describing it in one op-ed as having “siphoned off some of our great minds into a dead-end field that sanitizes the intellect, offers almost nothing to human society and conditions people to act in ways that are decidedly inhuman.” At the same time, he clung, albeit tepidly, to his identity as a “true bro.” Last October, right before fall rush, he wrote a column extolling the fraternal experience: “I must concede that, happily or tragically, many of my most poignant experiences here have dealt with fraternity life [and] I’ve been trying to come to terms with them all – and with how I let those experiences become too tightly entwined with my identity.” His advice to those who pledged was to support one another. Lohse returned to Hanover last summer, to prepare for his junior year. Lohse recalls the evening in hazy images: lit candles, blacked-out windows, a relentless pounding on the walls of the elegant pool room of the SAE house, where the pledges spent more than an hour standing in a circle around the pool table in total silence, as brothers burst in and out of the room, forcing them to down bottles of Mad Dog. More recently, students assailed members of an Occupy vigil at Dartmouth, heckling them with cries of “Faggots!

Instead, he implemented an infinitely softer set of reforms. “It didn’t feel right until I tried to close my eyes to everything I knew and realized it was impossible,” he says. “Some of the stuff we do is really disturbing and unnecessary, and we do need to put an end to it. “I thought it was great.
