It’s only been a couple of weeks since the first members of the Class of 2019 began to arrive on campus, but some Big Green athletes have already made names for themselves before they did the Salty Dog Rag outside of Robinson Hall. After competing with the United States national Under-19 Ultimate Frisbee league last year and representing the youngest player on this year’s U-23 team, Verzuh also toured the country with a group of female Ultimate players this summer to promote the sport.
These are going to be the longest days and the shortest four years of your life. Welcome to Dartmouth, ’19s, you’ve got a lot to see and the clock is ticking.
I added two new items to my desk collection this past week, at least until I can find them a more permanent home.
In his time away from the Dartmouth Rugby Football Club, Madison Hughes ’15 served as acting captain and played scrum half for the United States national team, the Men’s Eagles Sevens, in the HSBC World Series. For the first time, rugby sevens will be included in the Olympics with the United States officially qualifying for the Rio de Janeiro 2016 Games. Hughes has been chosen once again to captain the team for the first sevens showing at the Games. With Hughes on campus to finish his degree, The Dartmouth sat down to discuss rugby, college and his future plans.
As thousands of green and white chairs begin to cover the Green, members of the Class of 2015 begin to reflect on their four years at the College and prepare themselves for the world outside of Hanover. As the old adage says, each student at the College will have their own Dartmouth experience before their graduation. There are, however, events that undoubtedly affected the lives of almost every student on campus — from national attention coming after the “Rolling Stone” article detailing alleged fraternity hazing to a protest of the Dimensions of Dartmouth show and a sit-in at the President’s Office.
As the first hints of a Southern autumn began to creep onto the glimpses of burnt oranges and overcast grays, Emory University saw its campus flourish in a sea of blue. When the university’s student government executive board urged individuals to wear blue on Oct. 6, the initiative blossomed throughout campus. Blue bed sheets hung from windows, and several Emory students passed out free shirts they had spent the previous night stenciling by hand. Greek organizations soon took the charge — several fraternities covered their windows in blue crepe paper, and sororities painted their windows blue, with messages of support across them. “We stand together,” read one window, its blue and white color scheme accentuating the Star of David in the center of a heart.
The Mirror wondered what Dartmouth's missed connections postings would look like.
We’ve been lucky that one of our community’s greatest disasters occurred over a century ago. Tucked away in the Upper Valley’s quiet hills, it’s easy to overlook the possibility of danger. Students abandon laptops at library desks for hours, and it’s common to leave dorm rooms unlocked. The wiring in Dartmouth Hall has been updated in recent years, so it’s unlikely that it will once again burst into flames on a winter morning. Here at The Mirror, however, preparing for the worst is second nature. While we certainly hope that none of the following situations ever occurs, students must understand just what to do when everything hits the fan at once.
For decades, Dartmouth’s faculty have been invested in the wellness of their students, both inside and outside of the classroom — with the small community at the College, separating the two is almost impossible. A 32-question Mirror survey allowed faculty to reflect on the current state of the College, and the results reveal that discussions about major issues are far from finished.
As letters swirl around a black hole sucking bubble after bubble into an abyss, a player’s thumbs dart across the screen to form words, attempting to save as many letters as possible from what must surely be a dreadful fate.
Kelly’s beginnings as an artist and the events that inspired his works are the subject of “Ellsworth Kelly: Fragments” (2007), a documentary by Checkerboard Film Foundation the Hood Museum of Art will screen Thursday. Hood director Michael Taylor will introduce the documentary and guide the spotlight tour of Kelly’s panels after the screening. The film, he said, will explore the artist’s “subdued style,” referencing Kelly’s focus on things like the reflection of light in a window, unlike the more visceral subjects of his contemporaries.
As each sunny summer day slips idly by, you’re probably watching your friends pack their bags and bid their loved ones farewell.
In development for several years, the exhibition was created to mark the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the passing of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, said Kellie Jones, art history and archaeology professor at Columbia University, and one of the original curators for the show’s premiere in Brooklyn.
BBQ'S:Grill out, chill out.
RUGBY PLAYERS:We're not really sure why they're here, but we aren't complaining.
KAF: Now what will I carry in my left hand when I show up 10 minutes late to class?
My biggest pet peeve is when people pretend to be experts when they have no idea what they’re talking about. Luckily I took AP Literature and I’ve seen the “Pride and Prejudice” mini-series more times than I’m comfortable putting into print, so I feel like 19th century British literature is kind of my thing. This expertise is how I came across a quote from the English novelist, Henry James, where he described “summer afternoon” as the two most beautiful words in the English language.
Despite the stigma that continues to exist around the discussion of HIV on this campus and beyond, there’s no argument that it is necessary to raise awareness of the disease. No matter your risk, know your status. HIV is not a thing of the past.
If Dartmouth held the Winter Olympics, it would go like this...
Is the Dartmouth that previous generations experienced the same one that we live in now?
In the finely crafted art of distributing information via flyers, there are three keys to success, much like with real estate or electrical outlets. In no particular order, these are location, location, location. This mantra is the core of The Stall Street Journal, whose single-page publications are strategically poised at eye level in restrooms across campus.
