Last week, when I learned that Philip Roth had died, I searched my Notes app for the line from “American Pastoral” that I’d copied down last spring: “And since we don’t just forget things because they don’t matter but also forget things because they matter too much ... each of us remembers and forgets in a pattern whose labyrinthine windings are an identification mark no less distinctive than a fingerprint...” I was sitting on the grass outside of the River apartments on one of those first warm days of spring when being anywhere except in the sun felt like a sin, and I remember reading that line and thinking that it put into words something that I’d always known without knowing.

Whether first-year students have been dreaming of joining the Aires since their first solo in their high school choir, curious about Ujima since the dance showcase or thinking they might just wing it at the Dog Day Players auditions, the start of classes brings with it the first opportunity for first-years to show off their talents to student performance groups at Dartmouth.

Walking into the Hop Garage on Sunday afternoon, one would see a simple set-up of chairs arranged to promote an intimate viewing of a Dartmouth Dance Ensemble performance. The ensemble presented a preview of three works-in-progress that will be showcased during the spring term.
Student artist and computer science major David Wu ’16 says he could not imagine his life without a creative outlet. Wu works at the Davidson Ceramics Studio and has taken six visual arts classes during his time at Dartmouth, facts that might surprise some considering his scientific area of study. Before Dartmouth, he was not a visual artist.
We might be able to blame the theater department for the wind chill over Winter Carnival weekend. While the rest of campus was human dogsled racing and taking a stab at ice sculpting, the cast and crew of this term’s main stage production were working hard to bring the Windy City to Hanover. For the next two weekends, students will be staging “Chicago” (1975), the longest-running American musical in Broadway history.

You wonder about us every time you head to Hinman to pick up the basic life necessities you ordered off of Amazon because CVS is basically in a different country. You make uncomfortable eye contact with us while you’re fast-walking towards the tender queso wrap that you’ve been dreaming about since breakfast. You’re dying to know what our job actually consists of, who we are and whether or not we just saw you checking out your reflection in the glass. So today, in an unprecedented step, I will bridge the gap between the mysterious elite glass box-sitters and the general Dartmouth public: I am a Hopkins Center for the Arts gallery attendant and these are my confessions.
Alumnus Tom Maremaa ’67’s most recent novel, “Of Gods, Royals and Superman” (2015), might hit a little close to home for some of his fellow sons and daughters of Dartmouth — it follows Christopher Reed, president of the fictional fraternity Quad Alpha, after his expulsion from the College on account of his brotherhood’s especially creative methods of ensuring their new members’ loyalty, a practice colloquially referred to as “hazing.” The Dean of the College tells Reed that he has six months to “do something great” if he wants to stand a chance of graduating with the rest of his class — so off he goes to “save starving children,” a phrase tossed around by probably every single character to whom he explains his situation.
Madeline Killen '18 interviews author Tom Maremaa ’67, who graduated from Dartmouth as an English and German double major. He spent 17 years as an Apple software engineer and now works in Silicon Valley. His novel “Metal Heads: A Novel” was named an American Library Association notable book in 2009. His eleventh and most recent novel, “Of Gods, Royals and Superman” (2015), takes place at Dartmouth.
DakhaBrakha, a world music quartet that will be performing at the Hopkins Center on Wednesday, has a sound that is rooted in traditional Ukrainian folk music, but is not limited by that genre — nor by anything else, it would seem. A surprise hit at music festivals such as Bonnaroo and GlobalFest and winner of the prestigious Sergey Kuryokhin Prize for Contemporary Art in 2010, DakhaBrakha describes itself on its website as an “ethnic chaos” group, a title that fits both its sound and aesthetic.
Max Samuels ’15 graduated from Dartmouth last year as a theater and Chinese double major. He is now attending a one-year master of arts program focused exclusively on classical acting at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts.
