On a bright Saturday morning after tough races against Yale University and Boston University, the rowing community at Dartmouth gathered for the dedication of a newly-improved team facility: the Friends of Dartmouth Rowing Boathouse. Presided over by Dartmouth’s director of athletics, Harry Sheehy, the ceremony was centered around appreciation for those alumni who built the program and made these renovations possible, as well as the opportunities it opens for the future leaders of Dartmouth rowing.
Week 4 of the NFL season has just come to a close and like last year, there are some teams in the league that, for all intents and purposes, are starting to phone it in and look toward the 2020 NFL draft. I wrote about this last year and some of the players I wrote about have looked like I expected (Deebo Samuel with the San Francisco 49ers) while some have looked worse than expected (Greg Little with the Carolina Panthers). Let’s take a deep dive.
Quarterback Jared Gerbino ’20 posted career highs in passing yards and touchdowns and the Big Green defense dominated as Dartmouth cruised to a 38-3 win over Colgate University on Saturday.
On Tuesday, the men’s soccer team lost 4-2 to the State University of New York at Albany Great Danes. Despite a second-half comeback, the Big Green was unable to remedy its scoreless first half and come out with a win on the road.
The campus group Movement Against Violence announced on Wednesday that its programming is being absorbed into the Sexual Violence Prevention Project, with MAV no longer “existing in name.”
Rebecca Holcombe, a former education instructor at Dartmouth, announced her candidacy this July for governor of Vermont in the 2020 election. Holcombe, a Democrat, grew up in Afghanistan, the Fiji Islands, Pakistan and Sudan with parents who worked for the United Nations. While she began her education overseas, she completed her high school and college education in the United States, later receiving a doctorate in education leadership, policy and practice from Harvard’s Graduate School of Education. She is a former teacher, principal and administrator for the Rivendell School District in New Hampshire, and she served as director of Dartmouth’s Teacher Education program from 2011 until 2014. In 2014, she was appointed as Vermont’s secretary of education, a position she held until 2018, when she resigned due to policy differences with Gov. Phil Scott (R). She currently lives in Norwich, VT with her family.
Unlike most residents in Dartmouth’s living learning communities, upperclassmen residents of the Thought Project Living Learning Community moved into a locale a little different from the McLaughlin cluster this fall: 11 Webster Avenue, the former house of Sigma Phi Epsilon, a fraternity de-recognized by the College in 2018.
As students moved in for the fall term, many living on the first and basement floors of French Hall were dismayed to find that they would be sharing their building with a few extra residents: mice.
On Sept. 18, the College officially launched the Sexual Violence Prevention Project for the Class of 2023 after piloting the program for the last two years. Meanwhile, members of the Class of 2022 are currently participating in Dartmouth Bystander Initiative presentations in preparation for fraternity and sorority rush. With the College recently settling the federal class-action sexual misconduct lawsuit filed by nine former students, sexual assault and how it influences the culture on campus is at the forefront of the minds of many administrators, faculty members and students.
Is modern American feminism necessary? In a word, absolutely. Feminism is a necessary force in the United States as long as men and women are on unequal footing. As our country stands now, they certainly are. Men enjoy a soft, plush carpet — with a color that lies somewhere between cream and beige — while women are plopped squarely in the middle of an ice rink (if we are to continue with the footing metaphor).
As a Dartmouth student, the end of summer can be a pretty lonely time. With almost all other colleges starting the last week of August, the stretch between when home friends leave to the journey back to Hanover can be a slow and painful one. I am on campus now, of course — and it would be an understatement to say that my schedule is just a bit chaotic — but when I lived in a ghost town for those couple weeks, I had nothing but free time.
The College’s new housing policy that restricts students’ access to residential buildings outside of their own House communities has sparked a debate over how building access affects student safety and well-being, and a petition drafted and circulated by Student Assembly leadership demanding a reversal of the policy has garnered nearly 3,000 signatures.
This term, three businesses — AroMed Essentials, Han Fusion and J. McLaughlin — opened in downtown Hanover. Additionally, Still North Books & Bar — an independently-owned bookstore set to replace the Dartmouth Bookstore — will open later in the term.
Information, Technology, and Consulting finished the migration of all accounts and services to Duo 2FA, a two-factor authentication program, on July 24. ITC switched to using Duo to create a more secure method for logging into Dartmouth accounts and services, replacing the old method of security questions for authentication. However, some students have voiced concerns about the system’s efficacy since its implementation.
This Monday afternoon, Cornel West — Harvard University professor, political activist, public intellectual and social critic — stood outside Filene Auditorium and chatted with a student about 20th-century, African-American identity in the United States. Fifteen minutes later, nearly a hundred students flocked into the auditorium to attend West’s class — titled ENGL 53.43, “Race and Modernity.”
On Sept. 17, the College announced that its endowment grew by 7.5 percent over the past year, reaching a total value of $5.7 billion. Growth has been even greater in past years — the endowment grew an average 10.7 percent annually over the past decade, well past the rate of inflation. Yet rather than use this wealth to dramatically reduce tuition, the College seems content to sit back and count its billions.
Campus is abuzz with talk of Dartmouth’s new residential access policy. Students have discussed the absurdity and uselessness of the decision, while bemoaning its consequences. The exclusivity of the Cube, the now everyday nuisance of letting a friend in to a dorm, the ludicrous “solution” to end racism and the continued failure of the House system have been amply talked about among the community. But what about safety, the essence of the policy?
With more than 400 days until Election Day, an overlong list of Democratic candidates shows no signs of shrinking. The slate of candidates is polling at numbers as varied as their experience, policies, backgrounds and tones. At the forefront of the minds of presidential candidates and Democratic voters alike is how to beat President Trump in the 2020 election.
How many memes have you seen about “fake news” in the past year? While “fake news” has become a comical buzzword, this phenomenon of publishing blatantly false information has caused quite a stir in the world of journalism. Even though there is no substantial proof that the spread of “fake news” holds any significant influence over the population, some are advocating for a change in policy forbidding “misinformation” from being published. While it is important that the public reads the truth, striving for a lie-free media is not worth surrendering our freedom of the press in a vain attempt to stop the age-old and inevitable spreading of lies.
