At Tuesday’s State of the Union address, President Donald Trump paraded the country’s rising tide of economic success. The unemployment rate is at a 50-year-low at 3.5 percent, and hourly wages for some of the country’s lowest income earners have risen. Americans’ attitudes generally reflect those numbers, as many feel better about the economy than they did a year ago.
When New York University’s Grossman School of Medicine announced that it was going tuition-free in August 2018, thousands of pre-med and medical students across the country reloaded their browsers in disbelief.

After graduating from Smith College in 1984, computer science professor Patricia Hannaway first worked as a corporate analyst on Wall Street. However, the span of her 40-year career has taken her in a multitude of creative directions. After working on Wall Street, Hannaway helped animate Disney films such as “Mulan” and “Pocahontas,” and also served as senior animator for “The Lord of the Rings” character Gollum. The Dartmouth sat down with Hannaway to discuss her current projects and how she finds a balance between teaching and creating.
The first-ever Dartmouth Designathon was held at the Magnuson Center for Entrepreneurship on Jan. 31 and Feb. 1.

The winning team won a $5,000 cash grant to further develop their project.
Flu season has arrived in Hanover, and Dick’s House has seen heavier traffic in recent weeks — making it difficult for students to secure primary care appointments or a bed in the College’s infirmary.
The Oscars are developing a bit of a reputation for incompetence, seen in 2017 when Warren Beatty erroneously announced that “La La Land” had won Best Picture — the Academy had actually voted on “Moonlight” — and they’ve struck again this week by accidentally tweeting a slate of winners for each category under the heading “My Oscars Predictions” on the official Academy Twitter account.

In early 2015, Weymouth, MA residents organized for the first time in opposition to a proposed natural gas compressor built in town by Canadian energy transportation company Enbridge.

In the basement of the Hopkins Center lies a commonly undervalued resource — the woodworking workshop. A bright, open space filled with large work tables topped with a myriad of projects in a variety of stages of completion, the woodshop is inviting yet intimidating. There are power tools lining the walls, cabinets loaded with joining materials and walls filled with different types of wood.
Ask people at Dartmouth how they spend their time out of class. Specifically, ask them how they feel about the non-academic aspects of Dartmouth. You’ll hear a lot of responses. Some will tell you this school is no good anymore compared to its fabled glory days. Others might complain that the House system is ineffective and completely fails to compete with the Greek system. Then there are those who believe the administration hates the Greek system, coupled with the students who feel the administration’s policy toward Greek organizations is far too lenient. The particular gripes might differ, but the general sense of dissatisfaction remains.
