Like all faculty, staff and postdocs, I received my email summons to complete mandatory Title IX training, as directed by College President Phil Hanlon and the College in response to the student lawsuit against faculty and the College stemming from alleged sexual misconduct of three male faculty in the psychological and brain sciences department. By a certain logic, this obligation makes me yet another link in the chain of the exploitative side of Dartmouth’s culture, in this case as it concerns labor practices. Exploring this link may point to deeper fixes for campus culture.
In light of the 91st Academy Awards coming up this month, a few of our film reviewers are looking at the Best Picture nominees to see what might be the best pick for the film industry’s most prestigious award. Today, Sebastian Wurzrainer looks at “The Favourite.”
There was a moment of collective solidarity on the Internet — which is really rare, considering it’s the Internet — when Fox announced the cancellation of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” in May of 2018. Fans of the show, from Lin Manuel-Miranda to Guillermo del Toro, all tweeted their outrage, leading to the show’s resurrection at NBC a mere 31 hours after the announcement of its cancellation.
Black Legacy Month celebrations kicked off on Saturday evening at Collis Common Ground with food, prizes and performances from student groups on campus. February marks Black Legacy Month at the College, and Dartmouth will be hosting celebrations and events throughout the month to honor black history and celebrate the continuation of its legacy.
On Jan.18, the 22-year-old West Lebanon man charged with the non-fatal shooting of a visiting Providence College student near campus last fall was indicted on four new charges relating to the Nov. 2 incident. The man, Gage Young, has pled not guilty on all charges and is set to return to court for a pretrial hearing on Feb. 27.
Physics and astronomy professor James LaBelle is an experimental space plasma physicist who has been at Dartmouth since 1989. LaBelle was appointed to the inaugural Lois L. Rodgers Professorship at Dartmouth in 2010, and holds degrees from Cornell University and Stanford University. He currently teaches both introductory and higher-level physics courses and specializes in geophysics and radio emissions.
It was one of the greatest marketing campaigns of all time: a pristine launch video showing supermodels swimming in bikinis on an island once owned by Pablo Escobar, a series of cryptic orange tiles posted online by celebrities and Instagram influencers and the promise of an immersive music experience in the Bahamas called Fyre Festival. In reality, it was an utter disaster; gourmet meals became two slices of cheese on soggy bread, luxury villas became disaster-relief tents and Fyre Festival became a colossal failure of the millennial age.
The last disposable to-go container “walked out” of the Courtyard Café on Feb. 3.
As part of their campaign to increase transparency when it comes to alcohol usage on campus, the Student Wellness Center released data from 2018 with revealing statistics about alcohol consumption among students. While most of the data stayed the same or close to last year’s figures, alcohol-related incidents with Safety and Security and/or Residential Education increased by 49 incidences.
Everyone loves a Cinderella story. Especially in basketball. There’s no better feeling than watching some small-time program make a name for itself on the court against bigger and more well-funded competition. Just last year we had the No. 16 seed over No. 1 seed upset and a school that had an elderly nun as moral support on the bench make it to the Final Four. It’s crazy to think that the rules were almost changed to bar mid-majors from the tournament in an effort to keep postseason play more exciting. We have the Ivy League to thank for that, as No.16 seed Princeton University almost upset No. 1 Georgetown University in 1989, but ended up losing 50-49. That game alone ensured that Madness would continue, and mid-major schools would continue to get invited to the Big Dance (Scrabis got fouled by the way). Here’s some of the mid-major teams to look out for in March.
The Accidental Fan: Toto, I’ve a Feeling We’re Not in the Ivy League Anymore
In celebration of this weekend’s Super Bowl, this week’s edition of Pucks in Deep will be a National Football League-National Hockey League crossover event. More specifically, I will explore the divergent way in which the two leagues handle the contracts of their most high impact positions.
For the first time in 2019, Dartmouth women’s hockey emerged from this past weekend with a win. Not only did the team upset close conference rival Brown University 5-2, but the team set a season-high goal tally in the process. Eight players combined for 14 total points, which is the type of production this team has been on the verge of all season long. The next day, however, the team fell 2-0 to Yale University.
Despite tallying its first win of Ivy play at Brown University this weekend, the Dartmouth women’s basketball team slipped into a tie for last place in the Ivy League with a loss in New Haven against Yale University this weekend. Consecutive losses against Harvard University in its first two games of conference play gave the Big Green an 0-2 record heading into its first back-to-back weekend. After a confidence boosting win in Providence, a slow start on Yale home court dug Dartmouth into a hole that it couldn’t climb out of. Coming out of the weekend, the Big Green holds a 1-3 record in Ivy play.
The Dartmouth men’s basketball team suffered a pair of devastating losses this weekend, falling 60-58 to Brown University and 89-68 to Yale University in back-to-back home games. With the losses, the team falls to 10-10 overall and 1-3 in Ivy League play.
Motivated by some recent close defeats, the women’s tennis team comes into this season hoping to build on recent years of strong play that consistently places them as one of the best teams in the Ivy League. Last year, the team finished tied for third in the Ivy League. In 2017, following back-to-back second place finishes, the team tied for first in the Ivy League, earning the team an automatic bid to the NCAA Championship, where they lost in the first round to the University of Kentucky. Kristina Mathis ’18 was the unanimous Ivy League Player of the Year last year and competed in the NCAA Singles Championship. Returning sophomore Abigail Chiu ’21 earned a spot on the Ivy League first team for doubles last year also along with Julia Schroeder ’18.
After a successful season last year, the Dartmouth men’s tennis team has once again gotten off to a fast start and has lofty goals for the remainder of the season.
Drew Duffy ’21 has been sensational for Dartmouth in his debut season, with four wins in six races. The collegiate carnival scene might be new to him as of this year, but he’s certainly not wanting for experience.
