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).
Around 90 students packed the Collis Center’s TV lounge on Tuesday night to watch the results of the New Hampshire primary unfold. TVs around the room featured live coverage from CNN, MSNBC and the local WMUR9, while ABC’s Devin Dwyer ’05 broadcasted from the event throughout the evening.
After months of town halls, rallies and stump speeches, the 2020 New Hampshire Democratic presidential primary ended with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) claiming the top spot with 25.7 percent of the votes, the Associated Press projects as of press time. South Bend, IN mayor Pete Buttegieg narrowly followed with 24.4 percent of the vote, and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) garnered 19.7 percent of the vote to make a comeback third-place win.
If the New Hampshire election results hold at the time I’m writing this column, this newspaper will likely be announcing a victory for Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary — or at least a very good finish. With what has been described as a functional home-state advantage, Sanders won the 2016 New Hampshire primary against Hillary Clinton by a whopping 22 points. His closest competitor in the polls here this year is former South Bend, IN mayor Pete Buttigieg, who is benefitting from unease in the moderate segment of the party after former vice president Joe Biden’s weak showing in the Iowa caucuses. Biden is still polling just two points behind Sanders nationally, but New Hampshire and Iowa have clearly demonstrated that moderate voters are far more inclined to vote strategically and switch their vote in order to get a candidate that they agree with in office. But are these self-proclaimed pragmatists really playing the game with a winning strategy?
If the polls are any indication, Bernie Sanders is surging. He lost the Iowa caucuses by a razor-thin margin against Pete Buttigieg and did very well in New Hampshire.
“One Child Nation,” directed by award-winning documentarian Nanfu Wang, is one of the first documentaries to delve into China’s one-child policy. While it does so in an innovative way, the film lacks objectivity and coherence in telling the story.
When asked in a recent poll by The Dartmouth how they would describe the state of American politics in one word, students generally gave negative answers.
The ceramics studio provides access to materials, a team of professionals to guide students just starting out, and a space for students looking to get involved with arts on campus. Sunlight streams in from wide windows on the far wall of the studio, falling on shelves lined with student-made ceramic vessels. The studio creates an atmosphere for students of any level to take a break from their work and de-stress by making something with their hands.
With voters in New Hampshire heading to the polls today for the first-in-the-nation presidential primary, Dartmouth students are closely divided in their preferred candidates, according to a poll conducted by The Dartmouth this past weekend.
