“We are all playing catch-up with the tobacco industry — the regulators, general public, other policy makers and media,” director of the Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Tobacco Products Mitchell Zeller ’79 said in his Sept. 28 talk on tobacco in today’s America. “These are extremely smart people, and they have a 75- to 100-year head start on regulation.”

This year, the Faculty of Arts and Sciences recognized 12 professors with awards for their academic work as scholar-teachers. The winners include professors whose fields span subjects ranging from music to history to mathematics. Each awardee was selected by the deans of their divisions, while history and Native American studies professor Colin Calloway received the Jerome Goldstein Award for Distinguished Teaching, an award given to one professor each spring by a vote by the graduating class.
The College may be on its way to developing biomaterials with the potential to improve human quality of life. Faculty at Dartmouth have joined the New Hampshire Center for Multiscale Modeling and Manufacturing of Biomaterials or N.H. Biomade, a statewide research effort recently awarded a $20 million five-year grant by the National Science Foundation.
On Sept. 18, Irvine, California based-nutraceutical company ChromaDex and the Trustees of Dartmouth College filed a patent infringement complaint in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware against Elysium Health, another nutraceutical company and former customer of ChromaDex.

On Aug. 6, a former Dartmouth student filed a lawsuit against the College, alleging that he was wrongfully expelled last September following unfair disciplinary hearing procedures that breached the College’s contractual obligations to him and violated his Title IX rights.

Prior to his expulsion, the student had expected to graduate in spring 2018.

From Elon Musk to Mark Zuckerberg, some chief executive officers have more control over their companies while others have less, but does it make a difference?
In 2006, Doug Fraser, senior research engineer and laboratory instructor at the Thayer School of Engineering, was inspired by an unlikely object — his 2001 Toyota Prius. At the time, Dartmouth participated in the Formula SAE competition, in which students race cars built with motorcycle engines. Fraser believed challenging students to create hybrid cars would be a better educational and multidisciplinary experience.

Ninety percent of Dartmouth students begin their four years bundled with a group of their soon-to-be classmates, camping in the woods, hiking amidst pleasant conversations, trying their hand at canoeing or making pizza at the Organic Farm. During Dartmouth Outing Club First-Year Trips, students engage in their first interactions and form their first relationships of their time at Dartmouth.
A little over a year ago, I entered Dartmouth’s not-yet-freezing campus a bright-eyed and bushy tailed NARP (Non-Athletic Regular Person). I soon noticed the omnipresence of varsity gear at Dartmouth: black backpacks with telltale stitched green player numbers, Peak Performance shirts and Dartmouth green attire that punctuate the wardrobe of 913 students this year.
Jaime Eeg ’18 is no stranger to the term “crazy horse girl.” It’s the name that people sling at her when she talks about horses — the ones on the horse farm she was raised on, and her very own that she keeps at a barn nearby. Eeg was riding before she could even walk. As she grew up on the backs of horses, she noticed that her fellow riders were always girls, and while the boys would respect her for being able to handle a 1,500-pound animal, the interest would stop there. “Crazy horse boy” was never much of a thing.
Leadership is a broad term, but it’s something that many people strive toward. Often times, the type of leadership that people gravitate toward is the kind that comes with a title, and we are often misled to think that the only significant leaders are those who head an organization or have a formal title to their name. In reality, leadership encompasses much more than that. Leadership requires personality, the ability to interact with others, compassion and the motivation to serve. It is something that can help a person grow.
