This weekend, the Dartmouth men’s tennis team traveled to Cornell University in Ithaca, NY for the Eastern College Athletic Conference Indoor Championship. The team entered the tournament as the No. 2 seed, coming in undefeated with an 8-0 record, but finished the tournament in fourth place.
Over Valentine’s Day weekend, Big Green men’s hockey took on Ivy League opponents Brown University and Yale University on home ice in Thompson Arena.
Happy winter everyone, it’s good to be back. Some quick hits from around the country: The Big Ten is a bloodbath, and I can easily see the conference sending more than 10 teams to the NCAA Tournament; the ACC might only send three teams to the tournament in a down year; and San Diego State University is the lone remaining undefeated team in college basketball — and it doesn’t seem like the Aztecs will lose any time soon. Some early bracket busters for March to watch for: Northern Iowa University, Brigham Young University and East Tennessee State University.
The women’s basketball team split games this weekend against Columbia University and Cornell University in two hard fought road battles. Despite falling to the Lions 73-63 on Friday, the Big Green ended its six-game losing skid on Saturday with a 67-65 win over the Big Red as Elle Louie ’21 nailed a game-winning jumper with 13 seconds to go.
For the first time in five years, the Dartmouth men’s basketball team (9-14, 2-6 Ivy) swept an Ivy League back-to-back weekend.
After appearing in the NCAA tournament for the first time in six years and securing a share of the Ivy League title last season, the women’s lacrosse team will head into the 2020 season ranked third in the conference and No. 22 in the nation. Under new head coach Alex Frank, the Big Green will look to build on last year’s title and finish deeper in the bracket.
In recent years, students have seen the cost of college rise dramatically. Between 1988 and 2018, according to the College Board, tuition prices tripled at public four-year schools and doubled at private four-year programs.
Dartmouth ranked low among peer institutions in a Chronicle of Higher Education study of colleges that are most “generous” to its financially neediest students. The rankings, which were released on Jan. 26 using United States Department of Education data from 2017 to 2018, placed Dartmouth at 55 on the list, making it the only Ivy League school not included in the top 50.
Datamatch, a free matchmaking service started by Harvard University students 25 years ago, has arrived at Dartmouth.
College President Phil Hanlon, while serving as provost of the University of Michigan, was made aware in 2010 of allegations of misbehavior against an administrator who was in the process of receiving a promotion, according to a report by the Detroit Free Press.
Despite weeks of warmer weather leading up to Winter Carnival, temperatures dropped on Friday and remained low throughout the weekend, preventing the traditional polar bear swim and ice skating on Occom Pond. Difficulties at the U.S.-Canadian border also prevented the delivery of a large dome that would have been placed on the Green. Despite these constraints, many of the other events ran as scheduled including a completion of a full-sized snow sculpture in the center of the Green.
Last year, the Academy Awards were not in good shape; no one would host, the choices for winners were unpopular and the awards show faced consistently declining numbers. Alternatively, at this year’s 92nd Academy Awards, the decision to not have a host again worked very well; the choices for nominations and winners were the best they have been in years; and the presenters and performers kept the show interesting throughout. And yet, this year’s Oscars had the lowest viewership recorded since Nielsen Sounds can began keeping track in 1974. Those of us who did watch, however, were treated to the best Academy Awards in many years.
The end of the world — we’ve all thought about it. Whether the image that pops into your mind consists of aliens descending on Earth or acres of land engulfed in flames, the concept of “doomsday” has been present in our society’s media, literature and entertainment for centuries. However, with the looming threat of climate change — that nightmare is becoming closer and closer to reality. Footage of California’s forest fires, earthquakes in Puerto Rico and flooding in Florida have been circulating throughout the internet, rightfully terrifying all who view it. For some, these natural disasters are motivators to become more active in the movement to stop climate change. For others, the devastation of these events and the seeming imminence of total destruction is overwhelming and makes them feel helpless.
How do you show appreciation for the earth?
There’s a reason many Dartmouth students have a pair of designated “frat shoes.” The mixture of stale beer, empty cans and pong cups that covers the floors of Greek house basements will ruin a pair of shoes in minutes. For most partygoers, leaving behind the night’s messy detritus is as easy as taking off our shoes. But those cans don’t just go away — so where does all this trash go in the morning?
The impacts of climate change are omnipresent. On Feb. 6, the temperature recorded on Antarctica climbed to 64.9 degrees F. according to one estimate — the highest temperature ever recorded on the continent. In the face of imminent danger from climate change, researchers try to find ways to mitigate the effects of global warming. One such researcher is biological sciences professor Caitlin Hicks Pries. Pries studies deep soil organic carbon and its implications in climate change. The Dartmouth sat down with Pries to learn more about her research and its impact on the environment.
With the polls open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. yesterday, around 400 voters an hour cast their ballots in Hanover High School’s gymnasium for the New Hampshire presidential primaries. Voters — many of whom made their decision just this week or even yesterday — indicated broad preferences for former South Bend, IN mayor Pete Buttigieg, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN).
