Woodstock, America’s first music festival of note, took place on a dairy farm in Bethel, New York, from Aug. 15 to 18 in 1969. For those three days of peace and music, concert-goers were expected to fork over only $18 — a little over $115 when adjusted for inflation. Today, a three-day general admission pass to see Drake, Florence and the Machine and other performers at Coachella will run you $375 — and if you factor in shuttle privileges with your pass, the cost will rise to $435, with an $85 minimum required just to camp out overnight. These prices, of course, don’t include food, drinks and initial transportation to the event. Times have changed.
The third session of Dimensions of Dartmouth — the College’s prospective students programming — ended this Friday, with total of about 1,100 prospective students attending the three sessions.

Growing up in Edgemont, New York, Chase Klein ’14 has had a love for music all of his life — he has always listened to a wide variety of genres, played the piano and the guitar in high school and founded the student band Chuck, now known as shArk, during his time at the College. And yet, despite his passion for music, Klein said he never considered performing professionally until his senior year. Just one week after graduation, Klein moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in music, performing under the name Chase Byrne, as well as working for Disney animation.
Most of us have fond memories of a Blue Steel-miened, vacuously heroic Ben Stiller from “Zoolander” (2001), spraying gasoline and successfully turning left with youthful euphoria, or even the crusty yet playful night watchman in the “Night at the Museum” series. Noah Baumbach’s latest romcom “While We’re Young” (2014), however, captures a verisimilar Stiller, around 50, succumbing to mid-life crises and arthritis, with nostalgic eyes for his past in a present without pity for the aging.

This past Saturday night, like so many other students, I hopped around fraternities, danced with my friends, ridiculed the hard alcohol ban, fretted over girls, swiped my ID and ate free barbecue — and when I went to sleep, I went with G-d in my heart and G-d’s praises still fresh on my lips.
Saturday night, a boy just like me lay in the suffocating dark, crushed under the rubble and debris of an earthquake a few thousand miles away in Nepal, with his ears begging for his mother’s voice or his sister’s laugh, with his throat choked with dust, with his body broken — and he went in terror to his eternal sleep with G-d in his heart and G-d’s praises still fresh on his lips and fresh in his tears.

As Ben Parker once said in “Spider-Man” (2002), “with great power comes great responsibility.” The stark reality is that with the “Moving Dartmouth Forward” plan and its implications ever-present in the minds of students, the newly-elected class representatives must deal with myriad issues, including student mental health and growing scrutiny around inclusivity in the Greek system.
