As soon as I heard from the University of Edinburgh, where I’m reading politics and international relations, that my application to spend two terms at the University of Mississippi had been accepted, a whole montage of images flashed across my mind.
Swamps, trucks, guns, the twanging of a banjo: the idea struck me as downright exotic.
In addition to administration and planning, community member and council development, and leadership education, Fraternal Leadership & Learning provides advising to all three governing councils and three auxiliary organizations, house director support and training, chapter adviser support, intentional educational programming, and recruitment and intake management.

The “American College Experience” has always gripped my imagination, as I think it does for many of my age group.Relationships are unprofessional, whether pursued on or off-duty, when they detract from the authority of superiors or result in, or reasonably create the appearance of, favoritism, misuse of office or position, or the abandonment of organizational goals for personal interests.Unprofessional relationships can exist between officers, between enlisted members, between officers and enlisted members, and between military personnel and civilian employees or contractor personnel.This boosts morale, focuses on the mission at hand and preserves respect for authority.Normally, personal relationships of Air Force members are ones of individual choice and judgment; however, if a personal relationship becomes a problem that affects the functioning of a unit, it is ceases to be personal and becomes an official concern.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." 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 – that most people, including virtually all of Lohse's high school friends, would find astounding.
