Carolyn: I was disappointed to find out that I was randomly assigned to live in the River cluster — notoriously known as one of the worst dorms because of its distant location from the center of campus. I soon found that the long walk down Tuck Drive was worth it because of the unique community that organically sprung up there. I didn’t necessarily feel grateful for it while I was making the 20-minute trek to the River through the snow and hail, but looking back, I would now regard living in the River as a blessing in disguise, as I met some of my best friends there.
“How are you?”
Degree requirements at Dartmouth can sometimes be a pain. Students must fulfill 10 distributives, fulfill a language requirement, pass an English class, First-Year Seminar and three courses that satisfy World Culture Requirements, complete physical education courses, and pass a swim test. These requirements form a basis for the liberal arts education that Dartmouth prides itself on. While these requirements can be tough, they can also be a blessing in disguise.
They’ve made it. More than a decade of practice, games, tournaments and tryouts, and they have made it. Entering the fabled interior of Floren Varsity House, donning fresh Dartmouth Peak Performance gear, each is now a collegiate athlete — Division I — with four seasons stretching before them. But the years of practice necessary to be recruited take a considerable toll on athletes’ bodies. Once at Dartmouth, the intensity with which they compete sometimes leads to new physical trauma. Injury — a looming threat for any student athlete — can have far-reaching impacts on all facets of student life. Though perhaps not all is as bleak as it might seem.
Some students come to Dartmouth thinking that their next four years might resemble a movie. “Animal House,” understandably, first comes to mind. Even so, what overshadows and vindicates this wild identity is Dartmouth’s ability to produce successful alumni in the film industry. Life may not always feel like a movie at Dartmouth, but many here end up writing and directing their own.
History professor Stefan Link specializes in the history of capitalism, business and the economy. After receiving his undergraduate degree in Berlin, Germany, Link obtained his Ph.D. from Harvard University in 2012. He conducted postdoctoral work at the European University Institute in Florence, Italy as a Max Weber Fellow. Link is currently working on a book exploring the global impacts of Fordism and mass production techniques during the interwar period.
Do medical students and their clinical evaluators agree on what constitutes actionable, constructive and helpful feedback? That is the question that internal medicine clerkship director and Geisel School of Medicine professor Hilary Ryder attempted to answer in her study, entitled “Understanding what we say: varying cultural competency amongst faculty evaluators on the internal medicine clerkship.” Through her research, which she conducted alongside University of Texas at Austin professor and former Dartmouth anthropology professor Lauren Gulbas, Ryder found that faculty evaluators and medical students often do not agree on what helpful evaluations look like.
On Apr. 6, Dartmouth students “Took Back the Night.” Social spaces were asked to close in solidarity with survivors of sexual violence. All of them said they did. (While walking home I witnessed a group of guys run loudly into a fraternity shouting, “We’re gonna be late for our pong tourney!” I will let you speculate which fraternity it was.) While many community members took hosting events such as movie screenings, discussions and a march seriously, most saw Apr. 6 as a forced “dry night.” What do we have to show for it a month later?
For students considering pursuing a career in either the government or nonprofit sectors, the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program may seem ideal. For example, the average medical student’s debt is $190,000. But as over 75 percent of hospitals are public or nonprofit, 95 percent of these loans are eligible for forgiveness under the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program. Teachers, Peace Corps workers and many other professionals are also eligible.
In the sixth installment of her series "Mixed from Maine," Morin typifies student attitudes throughout the term.
Ever since filmmaker and critic François Truffaut published his 1954 essay “A Certain Tendency of French Cinema,” auteur theory has played a prominent role in both film theory and film criticism. Put simply, Truffaut and his contemporaries contended that directors were the true authors of their films. I remain wary of auteur theory because of its pernicious tendency to devalue the accomplishments of the many artists who collaborate with a director during the making of a film. Yet Wes Anderson seems to exist for the sole sake of being an exception.
Saturday’s World Music Percussion Ensemble performance was an important one for director Hafiz Shabazz — his 108th and final concert before retiring after more than 30 years as director. And for Shabazz, it was fitting that the performance was intended for children. Parents and grandparents filled the audience of the HopStop family show, crowding together on the floor with kids on their laps — but not for long. Soon, the kids were up and dancing to the energetic rhythms of Shabazz’s group.
The weather cleared up just in time for the 2018 Dartmouth Powwow to take place on the Green, putting the celebration of Native American arts and culture front and center on campus. This year’s powwow brought a diverse array of Native American creativity to Hanover, representing singers, drummers, dancers and artisans from communities across the United States.
Study abroad programs are popular with Dartmouth students — and now the College’s “The Call to Lead” capital campaign will provide more financial support for students wishing to participate in these programs. Karen and Jim Frank ’65 and their sons Daniel Frank ’92 and Jordan Frank ’94 have pledged $5 million to support students on financial aid who are studying on off-campus programs. The family also set up a $2.5 million dollar-for-dollar match challenge to encourage additional donations, which could bring in a total of $10 million or more for this cause.
On May 9, Dartmouth welcomed Nobel Laureate in Physics Jerome Friedman to campus for the second time for a public lecture entitled “Are We Really Made of Quarks?” to a packed audience in Dartmouth Hall. In addition to the lecture, Friedman also met with three students from the Women in Science Project and visited Physics 72, “Introductory Particle Physics” earlier in the day.
In late April, the made-to-order Roslin’s Sushi service located in Collis Café announced its temporary unavailability because it had been operating without a permit to make sushi on College premises. Since then, made-to-order sushi has remained unavailable, but concerned students need only wait for the vendor to attain an additional permit, said the director of dining services Jon Plodzik.
The English and creative writing department at the College will welcome critically-acclaimed poet Joshua Bennett this upcoming fall as a new assistant professor. Bennett’s first course next spring will be English 53.29, “Introduction to African American Environmental Thought: The Black Outdoors.”
Over the past few weeks, Dartmouth’s athletic teams have been busy finalizing their rosters for the upcoming season, including the addition of the new recruits from the Class of 2022. Recently, three teams have announced the additions to their incoming roster: women’s basketball, women’s soccer and women’s volleyball.
Women's Track and Field:
During the end of April as the Ivy League was handing out their yearly distinctions, Jason Liu ’21 had the honor of being named Rookie of the Year in men’s golf. The prize came after his performance during the Ivy League tournament, where he finished tied for 13th after playing the lowest round of the tournament on day three.
