A joint study of an "anonymous elite American university" by researchers from Cornell University and Hebrew University of Jerusalem found substantial differences in grading between Democratic and Republican professors, according to Inside Higher Ed. The study concludes that Democratic professors were more likely to award more grades in the middle of the grade spectrum, while Republicans tended to award either very high or very low grades, Inside Higher Ed reported. The study concluded that the disparity between grades awarded to white students and black students was larger in classes taught by Republican professors. The researchers used party registrations to identify political leanings and SAT scores to measure the preparedness of students and rule out patterns in which certain professors had better students overall, according to Inside Higher Ed.

Decades after the end of the World War II and thousands of miles from its infamous concentration camps, one Dartmouth student has worked tirelessly to make sure the Jewish victims of the Holocaust are never forgotten.
For the past three years, Andrey Dolinko '11 has brought the international day of remembrance for the Jewish victims of the Holocaust to the College. Armed with a computer and a microphone, Dolinko and a group of volunteers spent seven hours on the Collis porch reading the names of 6,400 Jewish Holocaust victims, Dolinko said. The names represented "one-tenth of one percent of the number of Jews who were killed," Dolinko said. "This started because my grandfather was a survivor and I decided to organize his family's names," he said.
Celebrated on the anniversary of the day of the Warsaw ghetto uprising in the Jewish calendar, Yom HaShoah — as the Holocaust Remembrance Day is known in Hebrew — invokes the memory of the millions of Jews who died at the hands of the Nazis, according to Dolinko. A list of the names of victims is complied by Yad Vashem, the Holocaust museum in Jerusalem, and distributed around the world to be read in memoriam, Dolinko said. Dolinko said he has organized the event annually since his sophomore year at Dartmouth. He began this year by reaching out to students across campus for names and biographical
information of any of their relatives who perished in the Holocaust, he said.
Thirteen students submitted the names of 161 victims, which were listed on a poster hung up during the memorial, Dolinko said. After the name reading, a short memorial service organized by Saul Zebovitz '11 was held on the Green. Attendees received programs that included the stories of several victims and a series of prayers, according to Zebovitz. Zebovitz said he included "the prayer that is said by mourners when they are mourning loved ones." Zebovitz also included another version of that prayer typically heard only at funerals because the vast majority of Holocaust victims never received a proper burial. "In a sense this is their funeral," he said.

Although the College will continue to offer assistance to pregnant undergraduate and graduate students, budget cuts proposed by state officials and federal legislators may affect the "convenience" of care for some pregnant students, Dick's House family nurse practitioner Elizabeth Morse said in an interview with The Dartmouth. While Dick's House treated five full-term undergraduate pregnancies last year, that number may not represent all the undergraduate pregnancies, since some women choose not to visit Dick's House when pregnant, according to Morse.
