The women’s soccer and men’s and women’s track and field teams recently announced two new endowed coaching positions. These gifts will enable their respective athletic programs to continue to grow. Stacy Smith Branca ’94, a captain of the 1993 Big Green women’s soccer team, and her family made a $2 million gift to endow the women’s soccer head coach position, while an anonymous donor made a $1 million gift to endow an assistant track and field coaching position.
After devoting 20 or more hours a week to their sport during school, Dartmouth’s student-athletes can find it difficult to fill the gap left by sports once their college careers end. Many try to stay connected to their sports by joining club teams. Others go into coaching, and a small few return to the Big Green as assistants. For some of these coaches, Dartmouth is a stop in the road on a different journey. For others, it’s a more permanent home or a springboard to a coaching career elsewhere.
The women’s rugby team continues to prove itself as a team to watch on the national scene. The team cruised through the most difficult part of their schedule undefeated, pulling out wins against two-time defending national champion and then-No. 1 Quinnipiac University and then-No. 3 United States Military Academy. This strong start comes with no small thanks to the first-years who have joined the ranks, with two women in particular, Idia Ihensekhien ’21 and Lilly Durbin ’21 already establishing themselves as standout contributors.
The Big Green men’s and women’s soccer teams each played at home against Princeton University on Saturday. The women’s game ended in a 2-0 loss for the Big Green, continuing a good season for Princeton and dropping Dartmouth to 4-6. The men won 2-1 with an overtime winner by senior Matt Danilack ’18. The game was Dartmouth’s first Ivy League contest of the season and improved its record to 6-2, putting the Big Green in a great position to compete for a third straight Ivy League championship.
Dartmouth football pulled out a win on the last play to defeat the co-defending Ivy League champion University of Pennsylvania, 16-13, at Franklin Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Friday night. With only three seconds left on 4th and goal, football head coach Buddy Teevens ’79 dialed up a run. Quarterback Jared Gerbino ’20 took the snap and punched it into the end zone as time expired, leading the Big Green to its third straight victory, improving to 3-0 on the season. With its first Ivy League win under its belt, along with a win against a College of the Holy Cross team that was then-ranked 25th in the FCS Coaches Poll, the Big Green seems to be poised for success going into the heart of its schedule.
The director of the faculty/employee assistance program James Platt will officially retire on Oct. 2. F/EAP, which is a college program that offers counseling and referral service for Dartmouth employees, will transition from the current internal model to a hybrid model operated under ComPsych, one of the largest providers of employee assistance programs.
Brace Commons, the common area space for the East Wheelock residential community, has been closed since mid-July due to water damage caused by heavy summer rainstorms. The snack bar and bathrooms are currently open to students, but the kitchen and main common area are scheduled to re-open only at the start of the winter term.
With the conclusion of men’s fall fraternity recruitment, fraternities have finished their rush processes, and new members are beginning to start a new segment of their lives as affiliates of Greek life. Interfraternity Council president Guillermo Amaro ’18 said that 341 men were offered bids at fraternities.
In July, Thai restaurant Kata Thai owner Janet Wong and Samosa Man owner Fuad Ndibalema began the process of merging their eateries into a single, cross-cultural restaurant that will replace what is currently Kata Thai. Ndibalema said that the transition will be complete on Monday. The merger comes as the second major change to Thai restaurants in downtown Hanover following the closure of Thai Orchid.
Elizabeth Smith began her tenure as dean of the faculty of arts and sciences on July 1, but she would have never imagined herself in the position just a few years ago.
Vice president for alumni relations Martha Beattie ’76 announced last week that she will retire to spend more time with her family, in what she called one of the “toughest decisions” of her life.
Politicians must be bidialectal. They must switch between the realm of policy — of painstaking minutia and predicted impact — and the realm of the public — of pithy statements and pretty words. To make this switch, they rely on the assistance of speechwriters, people paid to distill inherently abstract and unattractive concepts into effortlessly digestible statements.
Chinese is, by far, the most common native language in the world: about 15 percent of the world’s population learned a form of Chinese as their first language. Calligraphy, the stylistic presentation of handwriting or lettering, is ingrained in China’s appreciation of its language and spirituality. In the United States, however, Chinese scripts are often relegated to regrettable, poorly-translated back tattoos.
We’ve all been there. Telling a joke, or being told a joke, that is absolutely hilarious to the speaker but met with confusion or even worse, forced laughter by the audience. Whether it’s the bad pun your friend makes during your study session, the classic “dad joke” your father makes over dinner, or — my personal favorite — that cringe-worthy joke your professor cracks in the middle of a lecture, comedy is truly an art form, and sometimes jokes told on the spot just don’t go as smoothly as we anticipate.
At first glance, the books all appear to be vastly different from one another. One is about a foot in length, while another could fit in my back pocket. The illustrations vary wildly — in one, horrific black and white drawings paint the page, while another seems to contain abstract art. Upon closer inspection, however, I discover that they are all versions of the same novel: “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.”
It’s happened to the best of us. Sitting in Berry at 11 p.m., earbuds jammed in and coffee an arm’s length away, we slide out our laptops and open up an unfinished essay, prepared for a long night of re-wording paragraphs and restructuring sentences. As the night drags on, the comments in the margin begin to blur together and the words on the screen start to lose their meaning; we skip over a few passages and forget to refine our focus, add a word that’s out of place and confuse our voice. We miss out on fully developing our work because the final draft is due tomorrow, and we don’t have the time nor the energy to fully devote ourselves to the process. As the hours pass by, and we reach the end of our attention span, we ask ourselves the evergreen question: why didn’t I start editing sooner?
In an email addressed to West House residents this evening, West House professor Ryan Hickox and assistant director of residential education for West House Ted Stratton wrote that a bias incident had been reported as of Sunday night.
On Sept. 12, a New Hampshire Superior Court judge allowed Senate Bill 3 — a bill that changes the proof of residency requirements for voters who choose to register same-day — to take effect but blocked a portion of the bill imposing fines on voters who are unable to produce the required documents.
Geography postdoctoral fellow Garrett Nelson recently won a Royal Town Planning Institute Research Excellence Award for his paper and map on the role of commuter patterns on the development of megaregions in the United States, titled “An Economic Geography of the United States: From Commutes to Megaregions” that he co-wrote with Alasdair Rae, an urban studies and planning professor at The University of Sheffield. Their paper was one of five winners of the award, given at the 2017 United Kingdom-Ireland Planning Research Conference in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Nelson completed his undergraduate degree at Harvard College, where he studied social sciences and visual and environmental studies. He then went on to get his Master’s degree in geography, landscape and culture at the University of Nottingham and earned his Ph.D., also in geography, at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. At the College, Nelson’s research focuses on the intersection between social change and geography.
