Each year during First-Year Trips and Orientation, Dartmouth students and faculty try to brace incoming students for “impostor syndrome,” or the tendency for students to feel undeserving of their place at Dartmouth. “You are all here for a reason” is common advice to freshmen. This is counterproductive, and students would be better off in the long term if we held humility in higher regard.
Returning to campus this fall has reminded me of just how much of student life on Dartmouth’s campus is spent waiting in line. We wait in line for the Hop after 10As, Collis pasta at night and KAF whenever we need a boost. Waiting in line isn’t just a reality of dining halls, but also a staple of fraternity basements — where we must wait, once again, for our turn to play our favorite game. Sometimes, even just to enroll in a class, Dartmouth asks us to wait. This waiting will not stop after graduation, and we are very frustrated by this, because waiting essentially means doing nothing. The act of doing nothing is a concept that is almost unheard of in the digital age, and it is unfairly seen as a waste of time.

$1.5 trillion. This stark number represents the current student loan debt falling on the shoulders of over 45 million borrowers, from current college students to adults who graduated decades ago.
Last week, the College partially reversed the new card access policy, reopening House centers and other social spaces to all students. This came after the College received almost universally negative input from students and worked with Student Assembly to ameliorate discontent. This Editorial Board has already criticized the policy changes at the beginning of this term, and we are pleased that the College has taken steps to undo what was clearly a misguided tactic.
A criminal investigation that began nearly two years ago into the alleged sexual misconduct of three former psychological and brain sciences professors is still ongoing, according to the office of New Hampshire Attorney General Gordon MacDonald ’83. Meanwhile, a federal judge recently expressed concerns about the proposed settlement of a lawsuit brought by several former students against the College charging that Dartmouth failed for several years to act on allegations of misconduct against the former professors.
While the gulf between graduate and undergraduate students at Dartmouth can sometimes appear vast, the Tuck Mentors program at the Tuck School of Business — founded as the Dartmouth Professional Insight Network three years ago by Tuck students — aims to create a better relationship between Tuck and undergraduate students.
Set after World War I, “Peaky Blinders,” the fifth season of which came out this month, is centered around the Shelbys, a Romani family who have made their name as gangsters in the streets of Birmingham, England. At the head of the family is Thomas (Tommy) Shelby, played by Cillian Murphy, a ruthless and overly logical patriarch who, at the end of season four, becomes a newly minted member of Parliament to fulfill his longtime goal of becoming a legitimate business owner and politician who speaks for the people. While the show maintains its focus on the Shelbys’ endeavors to cultivate power and protect their own, the fifth season adds depth to the show in its discussion of mental health and morality.
Framed by the fall foliage of the Bema, Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren spoke to a crowd of approximately 1,100 students, professors and community members Thursday afternoon. Warren, a U.S. senator from Massachusetts, came dressed in a bright red cardigan to signify her support for public education — and brought an air of enthusiasm to match.
On Sunday, Cory Booker, New Jersey senator and Democratic presidential candidate, visited Dartmouth for a campaign event at the Top of the Hop. Booker discussed issues such as criminal justice reform and gun violence, while also touching on the importance of unity and maintaining Democratic values in the 2020 election. Booker began his political career as a member of the Newark municipal council, and he rose to political prominence as mayor of that city. Since becoming a U.S. senator in 2017, Booker has been outspoken on issues such as gun control, prison reform, affirmative action and same-sex marriage. After his Sunday event, Booker spoke with The Dartmouth about issues facing young people.
Paul Musselwhite is an associate professor of history who studies the plantation societies of early America. He recently co-edited “Virginia 1619: Slavery and Freedom in the Making of English America,” a volume of essays published last June. In 2017, Musselwhite, along with co-editor James Horn, organized a conference hosted at Dartmouth focused on events in Virginia in 1619, which contributed significantly to the collection. Musselwhite currently teaches multiple classes on colonial America, and will be teaching HIST 13, “Planters, Puritans, and Pirates” in the winter.

During a late September rain storm, water leakage in Remsen Medical Sciences Building, currently under construction, resulted in permanent damage of a microscope that will cost roughly $1.5 million to repair. The damage to the College’s Scios 2 DualBeam electron microscope was so severe that the microscope could not be repaired, according to electron microscopes director Maxime Guinel. A storm a few weeks later also resulted in water leaks in student residences in the River Cluster.
