What part of your identity is most important to you?
College is a time when students assert their independence. When arriving on campus, many students must grapple with their religious identities on their own for the first time, considering questions such as: “Should I go church today?” or “Should I pray before I eat?” Here, there’s no one forcing you to do anything; if you want to escape religion, you can.
The outdoors are an inherently expensive space, leading many people to associate outing clubs, like Dartmouth’s, with privilege. Today at 7:30 p.m. in One Wheelock, the Dartmouth Outing Club will be hosting an event called “Identity and the DOC” which aims to facilitate a conversation about privilege and the outdoors and take steps toward making the DOC an increasingly inclusive space, according to DOC president Sarah Kolk ’20.
It’s a running joke I’ve heard from twins and other students on campus alike: “Dartmouth loves twins.” Maybe that is true. But interestingly enough, there is some controversy surrounding how colleges address twins while making admissions decisions. In an article from the New York Times, William Fitzsimmons, dean of admissions and financial aid at Harvard, explained that twins are viewed as separate individuals during the admissions process, and if they are qualified, both may be accepted.
Latin American, Latino and Caribbean studies professor Andre Pagliarini moved to Brazil with his family at age five and lived there until age 14. Pagliarni returned to the United States to further his education, majoring in history at the University of Maryland, College Park and studying the heritage of multiple world regions. Pagliarini said he was insired by his grandfather — who served a Brazilian diplomat during the Cold War — to study Latin American culture as a way of sustaining his Brazilian identity while living in the United States.
“I started out with the premise that history is nothing but a series of narratives created by individuals who are fallible, biased and, quite frankly, have bad memories. And there is so much that falls in the gaps, and there is so much that has just been silenced,” said author Maaza Mengiste of the project that led to her most recent novel, “The Shadow King.”
LEBANON — Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg held a town-hall style forum at Lebanon Middle School on Saturday as part of a multi-stop bus tour of New Hampshire. Speaking to over 1,300 attendees, the event was the South Bend, IN mayor’s largest crowd in New Hampshire thus far, according to Buttigieg’s New Hampshire communications director Kevin Donohue.
Last Friday, students, staff and alumni gathered to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Dartmouth hiring its first female professor. The day-long event included speeches from past and present female College faculty as well as a Rauner Special Collections Library exhibit on the female explorer Evelyn Stefansson Nef.
With over $2.2 billion raised to date, the College’s “The Call to Lead” capital campaign has been “unprecedented,” according to alumni council member Julie Levenson ’84. The campaign’s $3 billion goal greatly surpasses the $1.3 billion raised in the College’s most recent capital campaign, The Campaign for the Dartmouth Experience, which was launched by former College President James Wright in 2002 and concluded in 2009.
The first time I was exposed to Korean films was a glorious experience. I don’t remember how old I was, but it was probably in high school when a buddy and I watched “Oldboy” for the first time. I was blown away. I had forgotten just how wide the spectrum of emotions a movie can make you feel was, and it felt like I was falling in love with movies all over again.
This evening, the Israeli violinist Pinchas Zukerman will give a performance in Dartmouth’s Spaulding Auditorium at the Hopkins Center. Known as a master violinist, Zukerman’s impressive career has spanned five decades. Joining him onstage will be acclaimed pianist Angela Cheng. Bringing together these talented musicians will likely produce a memorable performance.
I haven’t seen nearly as many films throughout 2019 as I might have liked, but what I have seen has left me largely uninspired — nothing awful, but also nothing to get me all that excited. The sole exception so far has been Lulu Wang’s phenomenal “The Farewell.” So color me both astonished and elated that “Doctor Sleep” has become only the second film this year that I really, truly love.
In 2014, Youtuber Gary Turk released a video entitled “Look Up,” a spoken word film intended for the technological generation. The video quickly went viral due to a hard-hitting message about technology and loss of human connection, but has since waned in importance. Dartmouth has recently had its own “Look Up” campaign, founded by Susan Reynolds, a Dartmouth ’84. Deemed “LookUp.Live,” the campaign has a goal of “creating innovative solutions for tech-life balance.”
Just by looking at a charter school building in Manhattan, one can tell that they are not like New York City’s traditional public schools. Charter schools are funded with public money but privately run. The money that would support a student in a public school is instead used to support a charter school if they choose to attend one. In New York City, the 10 percent of students who attend charter schools are more proficient in math, learn to read at grade level much faster and graduate at higher rates than their public-school peers.
In a rematch of last year’s national championship final, Harvard University edged Dartmouth women’s rugby out of a chance to defend its 2018 title by a single point on Saturday afternoon in Cambridge.
Breaking a 32-year drought of season-opener road wins and ending an opponent’s 26-game home win streak is one way to start the season. With its first season-opening road win in more than three decades, the Big Green men’s basketball team came out on top against the University of Buffalo on Friday, 68-63. While a 17-point lead fell to one in the second half, the Big Green kept its composure to hold the advantage against the Bulls.
Nov. 5 marked the start of the college basketball season, objectively the greatest sports season in America.
