Between chalking their names on popular student thoroughfares, pinning posters around campus and talking with students, the candidates for Student Assembly president and vice-president have worked to communicate their ideas for student government to the Dartmouth community. Luke Cuomo ’20, Tim Holman ’20 and Sydney Johnson ’20 are running for SA president, and Ariela Kovary ’20 is the only candidate for vice-president. Cuomo and Kovary are the only candidates running jointly as president and vice president, respectively. At the moment, Kovary will most likely become SA vice president barring a successful write-in.
Many people criticize baseball for being a slow-paced game without a lot of scoring. Scores like 3-1 and 4-3 are very common at all levels, and Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred has been trying to increase the number of runs scored since he took office. But lately, the Dartmouth baseball team has found itself in more high-scoring affairs with scores that would be more common in football games than baseball games.
The NBA playoffs kicked off with several upsets over the weekend. Is this the year of the underdog (at least in the earlier rounds, before the Warriors inevitably sweep in the finals)? Or are we just overreacting once again? Here are my hot takes for the first round.
Pucks in Deep: Hard to Catch Lightning
Gray skies and less-than-ideal temperatures did little to quell the Dartmouth track and field teams’ success in their first and only home meet of the outdoor season. The combined efforts of the Dartmouth women earned them first place overall with 235 points, nearly twice as many points as second-place University of Vermont. The Dartmouth men also secured first place with 181 points, a 27-point lead over Vermont.
The No. 24 women’s lacrosse team used a second-half scoring run to earn a signature win of its season against the No. 9 University of Pennsylvania. Down 7-4 one minute into the second half, the Big Green went on an 8-1 run to gain the lead and win the game with a score of 15-11.
Massachusetts senator and Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren drew a crowd of over four hundred students and local residents for a campaign event at the Hanover Inn on Saturday. In a speech and subsequent question-and-answer session, Warren denounced what she called “corruption” in the economy and Washington, D.C.
This fall, Zoe Leonard ’19 finished her final season as the Dartmouth volleyball team’s libero, but her history with the sport spans much longer than the past four years.
Dartmouth publicizes a wide-ranging curriculum with room for exploration for undergraduates, but that openness doesn’t seem to extend to the career choices the College promotes through its Center for Professional Development. Last week, the CPD hosted its Employer Connections Fair, where Dartmouth students had the opportunity to meet potential employers. Those employers came mostly from finance and consulting firms, and there was little representation from the public sector. This imbalance between private and public sector jobs is mirrored in a slant in jobs that Dartmouth students choose to take after graduation; 56 percent of the Class of 2018 took jobs in either finance, consulting or technology.
Xia Zhou is a computer science professor at the College specializing in mobile computing and visible light sensing. She was recently awarded the 2019 Association for Computing Machines SIGMOBILE RockStar award for “outstanding early-career contributions and impact on [the] field” this March. In 2017, she added a Sloan Research Fellowship to her other accolades, including having her work featured in a National Science Foundation-sponsored video. She co-directs both the Dartmouth Networks and Ubiquitous Systems Lab and the Dartmouth Reality and Robotics Lab at the College, and has taught several courses including COSC 60, “Computer Networks,” and COSC 50, “Software Design & Implementation.” Last weekend, she was a judge at “HackDartmouth.”
An “unlimited swipes” meal plan will replace Dartmouth Dining Services’ Ivy Standard Plan — which allows 28 swipes a week — in the fall of 2019. Two other plans, the 80 Block Plus and the 115 Block Plus, will replace the 75 Block Choice and 125 Block Choice, respectively. The 5 Weekly Plan and On and Off-Campus Apartment plans will remain as options for returning students.
In late March, the New Hampshire Supreme Court delivered a ruling on New Hampshire Alpha of SAE Trust v. The Town of Hanover and the Town of Hanover Zoning Board of Adjustment that largely favored the town. Of the ZBA’s 18 rulings, the Supreme Court affirmed all but one — the lone exception concerning whether or not Sigma Alpha Epsilon itself qualifies as an institution. This component of the case was remanded back to the ZBA for further proceedings, perpetuating the limbo status of the derecognized Greek organization.
The Fab Five, the beloved group of queer men on the Netflix series “Queer Eye,” are back for their third season in Kansas City, MO — more sparkly and delightful than ever. After two seasons of makeovers in Atlanta, GA, the group hones in on the Heartland of America. Filled with stunning transformations, heartwarming moments and plenty of “yaass girl”s, the third season entertains with its bright, feel-good plot and humor.
The coffee shop is a privileged space. Since coffee was exported from Ethiopia to Mecca and Medina in the 10th century, coffeehouses have been a staple of cosmopolitan life around the world. People have used coffeehouses as local meeting places, cornerstones of an interconnected and reflective neighborhood.
On March 22, special counsel Robert Mueller delivered his report on the two-year long investigation into Russian involvement in the 2016 election. Many Democrats have spent the previous two years on the edge of their seats, hoping Mueller’s report would allege that the Donald Trump campaign colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 election. Two days after Mueller submitted his report, attorney general William Barr submitted a four-page summary of the report to Congress — a decision that many Democrats decried as indicative of a lack of transparency and oversight. Given Barr’s public skepticism of the investigation, Democrats aren’t wrong to question whether Barr held back details that could have hurt the President’s standing. But even if Democrats have grounds to pursue a full release of the report, they dwell on the issue at their own peril.
Campus outsiders use many stereotypes to describe Dartmouth students. Posts on college-matching website Unigo portray Dartmouth as a fraternity-dominated, beer-drinking party school, but also as a place where students are laid back, outdoorsy and active. I find these Dartmouth stereotypes contradictory — on one hand, students are known for extreme partying, and on the other, they are seen as healthy and physically active. The truth is that both stereotypes are largely valid.
In the wake of last month’s horrific massacre in Christchurch, New Zealand, all of the usual media phrases and buzzwords that have grown so familiar and tired were put back into circulation. First came the expressions of shock and sorrow, peppered with words like “unimaginable” that have not been applicable for a long time. Then came the discussion of the responsibilities of the news media, wherein a number of very serious-sounding people have the same conversation about not showing the video of the shooting for what seems like the 30th time.
Joshua Keniston, who formerly served as vice president and chief of staff to executive vice president Rick Mills, was named vice president for institutional projects on April 5. Prior to joining the Dartmouth community in January 2018, Keniston worked with the College on a number of projects as a consultant with the Huron Consulting Group.
