In recent years, both student groups and administrators have placed increased pressure on Greek organizations to provide financial aid for members. The “Greek Proposal” released last November included a statement of commitment from Greek organizations to increase financial inclusivity.
If you take a minute to survey the students around you, chances are you will spot more than a few who proudly sport green or black jackets embroidered with their respective sport team’s name. If you do not notice the jackets, maybe you spotted students wearing green Nike shoes or black Nike backpacks with their jersey numbers stitched on the back pocket.
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.
Like many freshmen, Frank Uzzi ’15 entered college planning on a major that would both match his skill set and please his parents. Dead set on the engineering track, he immediately started taking the appropriate math and physics prerequisites his freshman fall, giving little deep thought to his plan.
The Undergraduate Finance Committee found itself at the center of campus discussion when it sanctioned Student Assembly in the fall for misuse of funds, but few students fully understand how the UFC works.
I avoid going home because I can’t avoid mealtimes. The scene plays out almost exactly the same way each time.
Stinson said that many people are not aware of the potential impact that arriving at the College can have on students of lower socioeconomic class. These students often require more institutional support to help ease their transition.
A recent increase in the national dialogue regarding socioeconomic class offers common themes on the experiences of college students from traditionally underrepresented socioeconomic backgrounds, but does not always reflect the individual complexities expressed by students interviewed by The Dartmouth.
Although 15 percent of the College’s undergraduates receive need-based financial aid, students’ experiences with aid — shaped by unique circumstances — still vary.
“You don’t realize something when you don’t know what to look for," Emily Chan '16 said. "I first noticed when I was on my [language study abroad] with other people. They were really nice, of course, but you see the obvious differences — half the group could afford to do a lot more than you can. Money can actually be real constraint for a lot of people, and it was just interesting that I myself had been so ignorant about it. Then I couldn’t stop seeing or noticing"
As students, we recognize that the College environment can artificially insulate students away from the grittier, often uncomfortable truths of the world that lie beyond this hill. But the current cultural momentum — a push toward recognizing social inequalities and privileges — penetrates even our Big Green bubble, and so we challenge our readers to reflect on these topics.
The student body was looking good on Monday. Maybe it was the glow from the remnants of a great weekend. Maybe it was excitement for the next round of midterms. Or maybe it was the weather. After several weeks of questioning why this term is called “spring term” when there was still snow on the ground and nightly temperatures often below freezing, spring has officially sprung, and on Monday, the sun was out, the sky was blue and the Green looked kind of green in some places.
American teenagers are wont to deploy the abbreviation “ilu” in text messages to one another. Like most of these abbreviations, such as “lol,” “brb,” “srs,” “gj” and the rest of that ilk, I find “ilu” a hideous piece of language. I cannot imagine a 17-year-old boy with tears streaming down his Dorian face, calling up to the object of his infatuation on a cold Italian spring night, “Silvia, Silvia, ilu! ilu!”
For reasons that I don’t understand, on Saturday night many of my peers (on pay-per-view) and celebrities/high-rollers (at the ring in Las Vegas via private jet) watched “the fight.” Yes, this is how people referenced the much-hyped boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao.
Ashley was a green light I never expected.
Here, we take a closer look at changes to how students have communicated over the years, what the most facetimey spots have been and how the job market has evolved.
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.
Late night,\nCome and pick me up, let’s grab a bite.\nLong line,\nCould end in mozz sticks or some Hop fries.
While the dopey egoists are away, the mice will play.
