Update: Dartmouth Frat Controversy
Rolling Stone contributing editor Janet Reitman, the author of Confessions of an Ivy League Frat Boy: Inside Dartmouth’s Hazing Abuses in the latest issue, recently sat down with her story’s subject, Andrew Lohse, to talk about the article and its aftermath. Lohse, a whistle-blower on the over-the-top hazing in his school’s Greek system, recounts some of the most outlandish rituals and speculates on how the story will affect Dartmouth president Jim Yong Kim, who was recently tapped as the Obama administration’s pick for head of the World Bank.
“I’ve never had any personal interactions with Dr. Kim, as much as I’ve tried,” says Lohse. “This is a guy who was just completely unaccountable, unresponsive, and I think maybe just uninterested in what was happening in the lives of his students.”
