Each week Vikram Bodas ’18 and Sam Forstner ’18 will tackle a controversial issue in the sports world. Much like home field in baseball, each week one of the writers will take their stance first (“away”), allowing the other to respond with an argument of their own (“home”). This week they will be debating each other as to the participation of elite professional basketball players in the Olympics.
Each week Vikram Bodas ’18 and Sam Forstner ’18 will tackle a controversial issue in the sports world. Much like home field in baseball, each week one of the writers will take their stance first (“away”), allowing the other to respond with an argument of their own (“home”). This week they will be debating the viability of football and the question of whether our generation’s children will grow up playing the same game.
Each week Sam and Vikram will tackle a controversial issue in the sports world. Much like the home field rule in baseball, one of the writers will take their stance first (“away”), allowing the other to respond with an argument of their own (“home”). This week they will be debating the merits of the NBA’s policy that requires athletes to be at least one year removed from high school before entering the draft.
Only two months ago, a new phenomenon began to sweep through the grand theaters of Broadway. And, odds are, it’s not what you would expect. That is unless, of course, you expected men in colonial garb rapping about the life of Alexander Hamilton. If so, you hit the nail on the head.
I sat across from Ilenna Jones ’15 at a high-top table by the stairs in the Collis Center, just talking for half an hour. From my vantage point I could see countless students going about their days — leaving with cardboard stir fry containers in hand, checking flyers on the bulletin board for job and lecture postings, exiting Collis Market with ample snacks for their Sunday in the library.
This is an age of brevity. Mounting time pressures shorten the day, and communication has become increasingly instantaneous and concise. In-person meetings become email threads, email threads become texting conversations and even written text often devolves into Emoji soup. On this campus, even the world “email” is clearly one syllable too long.
It’s midnight on a Tuesday — chicken sandwich night at Everything But Anchovies. Deep in the belly of the institution that almost single-handedly satiates every late-night craving on campus, tensions are running high. Employees bark commands — greeted with expletive-filled mumblings — as they scramble throughout the kitchen. A dish breaks. The culprit pauses only briefly to scream in frustration before exiting the swinging doors to wait patiently and pleasantly on the restaurant’s loyal patrons.
As one of the last Ivy League institutions to become coeducational, women have only been members of Dartmouth’s graduating classes for 42 years. For 15 of those years, the celebration of V-Week — now extended to V-February — has sought to bring to light issues of gender equality, sexual violence and various aspects of life that are affected by one’s gender identity to light.
The new undergraduate advisors packed into Brace Commons to begin their fourth day of training for an exercise called “behind closed doors.” Each of them must open a door without knowing what they will find behind it, and apply their knowledge of College regulations and protocol — as well as their own intuition — to respond to the scenario.
This past fall, Perri Haser ’17 sat in Reed Hall, room 103, listening to philosophy professor James Binkoski. The class, “Environmental Ethics,” solidified Haser’s commitment to environmentalism and helped inspire her to become more involved with the Divest Dartmouth campaign.
With all of the passion, history and testosterone that come with the fraternity debate at Dartmouth, it’s hard to remain impartial and not be swept up in the issue’s politics and intricacies. Although for me, I suppose it’s a little easier not to generate too many opinions when I’m not actually allowed in.
When this article is published, the Class of 2018 will have been on campus for 25 days. To put that in broader historical perspective, if Dartmouth College’s span of existence was one day, the ’18s have been here not much more than 20 minutes.
