As the cost of higher education remains an economic burden on young Americans and their families, progressive Democrats are ramping up calls for various levels of loan forgiveness. One of the most comprehensive proposals is that of Senator Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., who, along with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., has called for up to $50,000 in loan forgiveness, in addition to making public college free of cost. Though President Joe Biden has so far only endorsed up to $10,000 in loan cancellation, concerns about waning support among young voters have increased his attentiveness towards more expansive relief.
On May 14, the Dartmouth Symphony Orchestra will perform its annual spring concert on Saturday, May 14 at the Hopkins Center for the Arts. Directed by Filippo Ciabatti, this show will feature Jean Sibelius’ “Violin Concerto” and Tchaikovsky’s “Pathétique.”
The Arthur L. Irving Institute for Energy & Society has appointed April Salas — the executive director of the Revers Center for Energy, Sustainability and Innovation at the Tuck School of Business — as its interim director, the Irving Institute announced on May 5. Salas has previously worked at the White House for the U.S. Department of Energy. She is also a founding chair of the Community Power Coalition of New Hampshire, which is seeking to change the electricity landscape for consumers throughout the state by aggregating electricity purchases and increasing the supply of electricity that comes from renewable energy. The Dartmouth sat down with Salas to discuss her new role and future plans for the Irving Institute.

The warrant for the meeting states that the passage of Article 11 will establish a new zoning district along West Wheelock Street.
Maybe it’s just the weather, but somehow this week seven doesn’t feel like such a slog. After all, it’s hard to complain when we’re all getting our first sunburns of the season and “just 10 more minutes” on the Green stretches into long, sundrenched afternoons.
Last week, my friend’s history professor had COVID-19 — and without class for a few days, she had much less work than usual. When she explained this to one of our other friends, they rolled their eyes at her. “Well, that’s just the humanities,” they said with a sigh.
At a school as outdoorsy as Dartmouth, it sometimes feels like you need to be summiting mountains and backcountry camping in the wilderness of the White Mountains every weekend in order to call yourself a hiker. While some Dartmouth students do live up to this generalization, climbing a 4,000-footer is not everyone’s idea of fun. For those looking for less strenuous, closer-to-home hikes, there are plenty of trails for all skill levels. After conducting extensive research and braving these hikes myself, I’ve compiled my personal ranking of the Upper Valley’s best hike locations — from least to most enjoyable.
Every year since 1999, some sophomores have embarked on First-Year Trips-esque adventures to kick off their sophomore summer. These sophomore trips — called STRIPS — have been an annual tradition for decades, and have always aimed to strengthen class bonds. However, given that the Class of 2024 missed their opportunity to attend First-Year Trips as incoming freshmen, the stakes this year seem particularly high.
Leaving for college is always a kind of uprooting — from home, from family and, for some, from religion. Like many liberal arts schools, Dartmouth has a reputation as a bastion of secular scholarship, but the reality is that it’s just as religious as its student body. For some students, Dartmouth might be the first place where their immediate community isn’t faith-based, while others might have never stepped foot in a church. Between new friends, new perspectives and increasing distance from home, many students find their religious beliefs changing during the college years, but to write off Dartmouth as an entirely secular institution would be a disservice.
The annual Hanover Town Meeting will take place on Tuesday, May 10 in the Hanover High School gymnasium, where polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Voters will have the opportunity to decide on 26 articles — four of which have been submitted by Dartmouth students.
From April 23 to May 12, the College has been hosting Pride 2022, Dartmouth’s celebration of the LGBTQ+ community. This year’s theme is Colors of Pride, which is meant to highlight the diversity within the queer community.
After two years of pandemic-related cancellations, Green Key is returning to campus from May 19-21, accompanied by a new no-guest policy for the Programming Board concert except for members of the Classes of 2020 and 2021.
When the lights dimmed in the Boston Royale, the crowd immediately went silent. A figure walked out from stage right, dressed in a red suit and a red coat with exaggerated shoulder pads. As Rina Sawayama struck her starting pose and the opening chords of “Dynasty” began to play, the crowd erupted in cheers.
