(08/06/21 9:05am)

A lawsuit against the College filed by a former Dartmouth student accused of sexual assault has been dismissed, according to a Thursday emailed statement from College spokesperson Diana Lawrence. The reason behind the dismissal was not immediately clear.




Sororities issue safety rules for events with other Greek houses

(08/06/21 9:14am)

Dartmouth’s eight Inter-Sorority Council sororities have issued a safety standards and events policy for holding social gatherings with other Greek houses after releasing four interim requirements in July. The list of ten requirements will serve as “mandatory, non-negotiable” prerequisites for hosting social events, according to the document, a copy of which was obtained by The Dartmouth and is available below. 


College reinstates indoor mask mandate, but will not impose gathering limits or distancing requirements

(08/06/21 9:20am)

The College officially reinstated its indoor mask mandate Thursday, following new recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and similar measures adopted by the town of Hanover due to the spread of the COVID-19 Delta variant. However, as of now, physical distancing and restrictions on gathering size will not be imposed, nor will the outdoor masking requirement be reinstated, according to interim provost David Kotz. 


Opinion Asks: To Mask or Not to Mask?

(08/06/21 8:00am)

Summer term served as a test of Dartmouth’s ability to operate “normally” as the pandemic continues. It’s fair to say things have gone well so far: Until recently, cases have been few and far between even after most COVID-19 policies were rolled back in the last month. However, increasing case counts locally and the rapid spread of the Delta variant across the country have thrown a “normal” fall term into uncertainty. Just this week, Hanover reinstated its indoor mask mandate, and the College did the same yesterday. What should Dartmouth do to balance fears around COVID-19 with its long-promised return to normal operations? Should the College prioritize one over the other?


Dartmouth officials reiterate support for DACA after program deemed unlawful by Texas district court

(07/30/21 9:00am)

After a U.S. district court in Texas blocked new applicants for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program earlier this month, College President Philip Hanlon ’77 sent an email to the Dartmouth community expressing his “deep disappointment and concern” with the ruling. According to his email, the College will take action to promote “federal legislation that provides Dreamers with a clear path to citizenship.”


Kim: It’s All Stacking Up

(07/30/21 8:00am)

“This too shall pass.” So seems to be the logic of the institution: if you leave students in a constant state of limbo, they will forget what has already passed. But students see this and resist: calling on College President Phil Hanlon to resign, demanding compassionate mental health policies and stressing the need for an expansion of the housing supply. And as some students have noted in these opinion pages, this problem goes far, far deeper than the surface relief that changes in both administrative policies and personnel can provide. These problems are rooted in the historical, callous indifference of the College and the institution itself — its austere policies and the choices it makes — or refuses to make.  



Allen: Students Live Here Too

(07/30/21 8:10am)

The recent campaign for a seat on the Hanover Selectboard by David Millman ’23 has shed light on the tensions between student and non-student residents of Hanover. Exhausted by years of name-calling and othering by non-student residents — including prominent residents like Hanover town manager Julia Griffin — Millman’s campaign promised students a seat at the table where decisions impacting their lives are made. Though his campaign was unsuccessful, its underlying message does not have to face the same fate. Dartmouth students have long been treated like second-class citizens in Hanover politics; it is long overdue for the town to treat us as equals in the community.


New First-Generation Office will oversee FYSEP, King Scholars programs

(07/30/21 9:05am)

This summer, the College is establishing the First-Generation Office in order to provide greater support to first-generation and low-income students. The FGO, which has hired former Office of Pluralism and Leadership program coordinator Theresa Hernandez as its assistant director, will oversee the First Year Student Enrichment Program and King Scholars program. The expanded, four-week-long version of FYSEP, a pre-orientation program that half of incoming FGLI students attend, will happen in person and on campus beginning Aug. 9.

(07/30/21 9:15am)

Engineering professor B. Stuart Trembly Th’83 was known for his exceptional drive. A devoted researcher and teacher who frequented Hanover running trails, Trembly’s commitment and care extended to all aspects of his life. 



Review: ‘Call Me If You Get Lost’ sees Tyler, the Creator return to his roots, now more matured and refined

(07/30/21 5:04am)

When Tyler, the Creator released his album’s new single, “Lumberjack,” on June 16, it was unclear which version of him we would get on “Call Me If You Get Lost,” his sixth studio album. Tyler’s discography has seen a major swing from aggressive and alienating lyrics to exploring introspective, vulnerable themes. The album’s first single gave us the old, aggressive Tyler; it boasted of wealth over an abrasive sample from the pioneering horrorcore group Gravediggaz, but with humor and grace infusing the lyrics. Its sound is comparable to his earlier albums, but in a way that is more mature and secure, foreshadowing the feeling of the album that would follow.



Summer performing arts groups offer creative outlet for variety of students

(07/30/21 5:02am)

Every year during sophomore summer, a variety of performing arts groups on campus — from a capella to dance to improvisation — open up spots for temporary members. With generally more free time and an eagerness to take advantage of all the College has to offer, sophomores usually take this opportunity to challenge themselves to acquire a new set of skills or return to an activity they stopped upon coming to Dartmouth. Though the pandemic paused this summer tradition last year, with fewer COVID-19 restrictions on campus now, students are revitalizing it and enjoying the College’s gradual transition into normalcy. 




Summer Shape-up: How Student-Athletes are Preparing for the Upcoming Year

(07/30/21 6:05am)

For most Dartmouth student-athletes, summer is a time to rest and recharge from the previous season while preparing for the next. This summer, instead of recovering from the knocks and bruises of the past year, athletes are focusing on getting ready for the upcoming fall, which will be the first time Ivy League competitors set foot onto fields and courts since early 2020.

(07/30/21 5:10am)

“Detransition, Baby,” Torrey Peters GR’13’s debut novel, has been making waves in the publishing industry. It was longlisted for The Women’s Prize and honored as a New York Times Editors Choice. Notably, it is one of the first novels by a transgender person to be published by a big five publishing house — in this case, One World, an imprint of Penguin Random House.
