Backpacks of every color, shape and size were scattered around the doors outside Novack Café this Thursday, representing the range of college students who commit suicide annually.
“Send Silence Packing,” a display of backpacks representing the 1,100 lives lost to suicide on college campuses every year, elicited a very rewarding emotional response from Dartmouth students, according Katie Edkins ’12, the president of Dartmouth's Active Minds — a leading national non-profit dedicated to advocating mental health awareness on college campuses.
The “Send Silence Packing” event demonstrated the importance of speaking up about mental health awareness, according to the event’s coordinator Gabrielle Forestier ’14.
“I think the sheer number of backpacks on the walkway made students realize suicide is an issue that affects everyone, whether it’s your best friend, or the boy who sits near you in the library,” Forestier said in an email to The Dartmouth.
The exhibition was part of a larger traveling display that will stop at 14 different colleges in nine states over a five-week period.

"I'm a sailor peg/ And I lost my leg/ Climbing up the top sails/ I lost my leg!" is the refrain that defined movie music in 2006, when Martin Scorcese's "The Departed" exploded at the box office and racked up four Academy Awards, including Best Picture.

Sex comedienne Cindy Pierce kicked off V-Week with a warning that her show would be a no-holds-barred, sexually explicit night, and then outlined her main goal of the program: to have women “be present in your body, regardless of how it looks or how you feel about it, [because] when you’ve got your pleasure zones dialed in, nothing can stop you.” Pierce’s material covered college and post-college sex culture on Monday during the hour-and-forty-minute long show in a packed Collis Common Ground.
Her performance ranged from the outlandishly humorous (tales of swapping Penthouse pictures with the boys on her baseball team), to the endearingly candid (a description of her first orgasm, which took place in her college’s library), to the purely heartbreaking (a personal experience with near-rape).
During her performance, Pierce identified three major obstacles in trying to find fulfilling sexual relationships: the lack of pleasure education, porn culture and the alcohol and hookup culture.
Pierce described the recent upswing in students’ high-risk drinking behaviors as the single greatest threat to healthy sexual relationships, in an interview with The Dartmouth.
On the subject of pleasure education, Pierce put forth her theory of “asshole tickets.” The idea is that men are granted a number of “asshole tickets” — essentially a license to behave callously — in proportion to their charm and intellect, and the tickets are accepted as legal tender everywhere.
Pierce scolded the critics who only “wag our fingers at young men” without providing guidance about to how to be a responsible, conscientious lover or partner, and went on to say that, “we, as women, we as parents, need to stop taking these tickets.”
The witty comedienne also criticized women for failing to share the “knowledge of orgasms” with each other.

Schools on the Eastern skiing circuit have varying amounts of pride in their respective Carnivals: Middlebury gets a few students out to watch its races, for example, but not many people made the drive from Saint Lawrence University to Lake Placid, N.Y., for the Saint Lawrence Carnival.

Dia de los Muertos - or Day of the Dead - came to Dartmouth last week, heralded by Los Angeles-based contemporary artist Rigo Maldonado’s impressive art installation in Baker-Berry Library.
Behind the event was Latin American, Latino and Caribbean Studies Cesar Chavez Fellow Robb Hernandez, who saw Maldonado’s work as an opportunity to “bring what we do [in LALACS] to the student body.” Maldonado’s installation in Baker Berry is only a small part of this emerging artist’s body of work on the Day of the Dead.
For the past 15 years, Maldonado has worked to represent Day of the Dead as both an artistic practice and a way to honor the dead.

Grafton County officials have asked county treasurer Vanessa Sievers '10 to resign her post, alleging that Sievers has not communicated with other administrators and has not attended meetings, the Associated Press reported.
Sievers reportedly disputed the charge in an interview with The Caledonian-Record, stating that she had only missed one meeting of which she was informed.
Sievers, who was elected to the post in 2008, will be up for re-election this November at the end of her two-year term.
