As Dartmouth makes dramatic adjustments to student life due to COVID-19, the Dean of the College Student Advisory Board has met regularly with Dean of the College Kathryn Lively, seeking to bring student perspectives to the decision-making table. In the two months since its creation, the board has provided input on issues such as how to bring students back to campus safely and methods to promote adherence to COVID-19 regulations.
Protests in Hong Kong may seem far away for most Dartmouth students, but the Chinese government’s response — a new national security law with worldwide implications — has brought concerns about censorship and surveillance to Dartmouth itself. In the law’s wake, the College has issued a set of guidelines encouraging professors to take precautions when teaching about topics considered unpalatable by Beijing.
If you’ve seen any college food review TikToks, you’ll recognize the title of this article. NYU went viral near the end of August for its particularly egregious meal options for students in quarantine, including a whole lemon as a side dish and the infamous watermelon chicken salads served to vegetarians.
One of the few positive sides of the pandemic is that it’s helped us relearn to love the outdoors. The strict distancing guidelines in place to reduce COVID-19 transmission force us to plan any sizable gatherings outside. At Dartmouth, we’re blessed with beautiful natural surroundings, lots of green space and an institutional bent toward nature. However, we’re also blessed with somewhat tumultuous weather.
As students get into the swing of a new academic term, this week marks the end of quarantine for many living on campus. For some, this may provide the excitement of increased freedom and flexibility. But for others, these additional privileges may incite feelings of uncertainty. With the pandemic standing at odds with the desire for human contact — especially for freshmen seeking to make friends — will we be able to conduct social interaction in a safe and responsible manner?
Is your quarantine routine starting to feel drab? Are you looking for fresh ways to bond with your new floormates? These 10 activities, which you can do no matter where in the world you’re quarantined, are both socially distanced and sure to jazz up your day.
In the six months since campus closed, I have craved a long walk around Hanover. So, when I returned this term, I headed out to enjoy the fall weather. Along the way, I discovered all the ways in which COVID-19 has altered the College’s physical spaces, transforming how freshmen will experience life at Dartmouth.
The Ivy League’s decision to cancel all fall intercollegiate athletic competition has paused Dartmouth’s quest to repeat as Ivy League champions until at least the spring. The Big Green is adjusting to a limited, COVID-19-safe practice routine in hopes of an eventual season.
In this year of the unexpected, at least basketball fans can expect a familiar sight: LeBron James competing for an NBA championship.
Students seeking academic assistance this fall will have to adapt to changes in Tutor Clearinghouse offerings. One-on-one tutoring has been dramatically reduced, and residential experts, study groups and conversation partners have all been eliminated due to budgetary constraints. In place of these programs, the Tutor Clearinghouse is prioritizing group tutoring.
Ask any Dartmouth student what they miss most about Hanover, and chances are a handful of bright-eyed sophomores and jaded seniors will say King Arthur Flour — generally referred to in the Dartmouth community as KAF. The popular cafe and baking goods supplier, now called King Arthur Baking Company, has secured a loyal following among Dartmouth students past and present. The promise of their spongy pepperoni pizza after class kept me alive during midterms, and grabbing an iced maple latte before my 10A quickly became a morning ritual. But it is not just the delicious bakery options that made Dartmouth students line up outside KAF’s doors like every day was opening day. At the heart of it all, KAF is a responsible company. By prioritizing social and environmental responsibility, corporations like KAF offer a workable, positive alternative to the shareholder-driven business model that has been popular in recent decades.
On Sept. 9, the University of Michigan-Dearborn announced a “non-POC cafe” for white students to discuss their experiences with race on campus — and drew sharp criticism on social media after students posted images of the invitation. The university swiftly apologized, offering the explanation that it had merely wished to educate white students and “provide members of [its] campus community with opportunities to reflect on their lived experiences.” Yet no matter how it may be justified, enforced segregation yields damaging effects and has not been proven effective in overcoming bias.
Dartmouth students and Upper Valley residents alike were saddened by the news last month that Mink, the locally and nationally famous black bear beloved for her long journeys back to the Upper Valley, was found dead by the Mascoma River in Lebanon. Her death orphaned her three male cubs, who were born in January.
On Thursday, Hop@Home held its first events of the academic year. The fall kick-off saw two pairs of alumni take the (virtual) stage. Oscar-winning animators Phil Lord ’97 and Chris Miller ’97 participated in a live chat, and twins Angel and Dren Coleman ’13 DJed the event.
Frances Cha ’07’s debut novel “If I Had Your Face” has been making waves in the literary world. The Guardian praised the novel — a story about four young women navigating the rigid cultural hierarchies, impossible beauty standards and plastic surgery craze of contemporary Korean culture — as a “fizzing, grisly debut.” The Washington Post even likened the book to Bong Joon-Ho’s Academy Award-winning “Parasite.”
With only around half the student body allowed in campus housing this fall, the start of the term has seen an uptick in the number of undergraduates living off campus in Hanover and in the Upper Valley.
While some peer institutions have discounted tuition amid online learning, Dartmouth students enrolling for the fall quarter will pay full tuition — which is up over $2,000 from the previous academic year.
Despite the cancellation of all Ivy League athletic competition until at least Jan. 1, student-athletes living on campus this fall will be able to participate in training and practice opportunities starting after each student-athlete’s initial 14-day quarantine period.
