Humans have come a long way to arrive at this point of history, in which human expansion and activity has altered the course of the world’s climate. For the first time, we are aware of the profound impact we have on the environment. Rising temperature, rising sea levels, intensified storms, increased irregularity of precipitation and other alarming effects of climate change present with us a multitude of challenges and problems regarding sustainability. Temperatures are rising at an abnormally high pace, and it seems that humans are at least partially responsible for this worsening trend.
Reflecting on the national response following the Florida school shooting.
When men’s alpine skier Tanguy Nef ’20 was finally home in Switzerland for Christmas — during a long winter break that saw him complete 18 races across three countries — he knew he needed to relax. So Nef strapped on his skis once more and headed out with his family for a weekend of fun in the Alpine village of Saas-Fee. The sport has a peculiar hold on those who practice it. Skiing pulls you in. If you ski, there’s a good chance your brother skis as well. Maybe you grew up racing against your sister. More than likely, your parents put you on snow before you were 10 and you never left.

As Valentine’s Day approaches, Dartmouth’s Sexual Health Peer Educators, more commonly known as Sexperts, have been busy.

This evening, contemporary jazz singer and songwriter Gregory Porter will bring his soulful, melodic style to audiences at the Hopkins Center for the Arts. Porter, who has won two Grammy Awards, most recently in 2017 for his album “Take Me to the Alley,” had an unorthodox rise to fame. He initially worked as a chef in New York and sang in various bars and restaurants in his spare time. Heavily influenced by Nat King Cole through his mother, Porter became a recording artist at the age of 40 when his independently-released debut album “Water” gained attention from studios.

At this point, many have heard the statistics: including the 2018 contingent of athletes, Dartmouth athletes will have earned nearly 150 spots on Winter Olympics teams. Athletes from Dartmouth have competed in every Winter Olympic Games since the launch of the modern games in 1924. This year, 14 athletes with ties to Dartmouth will compete in the 2018 Winter Olympics and one in the Paralympics. The College’s consistent role as a powerhouse in skiing has been well-documented, but lesser known is the history of the sport’s meteoric rise at Dartmouth, which ultimately led to a culture of excellency and pride that continues to make itself known with the consistent domination of winter sports by Dartmouth athletes today.
Last week, the College reported a total of 22,005 applications for the Class of 2022, marking a 9.8 percent increase in applications compared to last year. Applications for the Class of 2021 totaled 20,034.
As campus becomes more and more like the ice planet Hoth, Star Wars-themed events will dominate Winter Carnival, which is titled “Snow Wars: May The Frost Be With You.” New and old activities will include an official snow sculpture — back from a three year hiatus — and classics such as the human dogsled race, ice sculpture contest, polar bear plunge and 99-cent ski day.
For a leader, it can often be difficult to strike a balance between pushing group members toward growth and making everyone feel motivated and supported. Connor Lehan ’18 has managed to do both as the president of Casual Thursday. An economics major and computer science minor, Lehan has been a member of the student improv group Casual Thursday since his freshman fall, when he fell in love with improv as an outlet for channeling the wacky side of personality.
Before King Arthur Flour and Novack Café opened as dining options in Baker-Berry Library, only Baker existed on Dartmouth’s campus. Studio art and engineering professor Jack Wilson is an architect who previously worked in the College’s planning office. Wilson told the story of Baker-Berry’s conception, explaining that in the 1980s Baker library underwent a reconfiguration, adding Berry to the existing library. The special collections library, previously housed in Baker, moved to Webster Hall, now Rauner Special Collections Library. This allowed for more space to accommodate the merging of library computing services and the former Kiewit Computing Center building, located where Carson Hall now stands.
Former men’s soccer coach Chad Riley and the Class of 2018 shared a special connection. The ’18s were the first class Riley recruited as an assistant coach and the first group of players to enter a system with Riley entrenched at the helm after he became head coach in 2013. Three seniors — Matt Danilack ’18, Tyler Dowse ’18 and Wyatt Omsberg ’18 — started games from the get-go, and the Big Green won the Ivy League Championship every season they played on the team.
