Homecoming weekend has come and gone, and I wanted to take a moment to reflect on how perfect the weather was that weekend. As far as I can remember as a sixth-year (yeah I’m old), this is the only time Homecoming has aligned so perfectly with the changing leaves. It’s important to take a moment to reflect on what’s important to you and take time to ensure your mental health is in order. I recently caught up with an old friend of mine in the Class of 2018 who made it up for Homecoming, and it was refreshing to have a conversation with her outside the realm of the Dartmouth bubble. Take the time you need to ensure that you’re happy — that’s all that’s important.
No students attempted to touch this year’s Homecoming bonfire, marking the second year without major bonfire incidents. Additionally, the College saw fewer Good Sam incidents than past years and only one arrest, according to interim director of Safety and Security Keysi Montás and Hanover police chief Charlie Dennis.
As students walk around campus, they may notice yet another construction project underway. Construction began on the Arthur L. Irving Institute for Energy and Society on Oct. 7. Expected to open at the beginning of the Fall 2021 term, the new building will be located between the Tuck School of Business and Thayer School of Engineering on Tuck Drive.
This Homecoming weekend, during Dartmouth’s sestercentennial, alumni came to celebrate. Between green-lit buildings and a cake shaped like Dartmouth Hall, an implicit push for alumni to share their wealth with the College was tangible.
International students consist of 12 percent of the Class of 2023, and they come from 51 different countries, each bringing their own cultural richness to the College.
The five residential social spaces on campus — House Center A, House Center B, Occom Commons, Brace Commons and the common spaces of Fahey — will, effective this Friday, again be open to students of all House communities.
Before coming to the woods of New Hampshire for college, Adam Riegler ’20 found his love for theater on some of the biggest stages in New York. From acting on Broadway to directing at Dartmouth, Riegler’s upcoming show “Red Speedo,” which will premiere on a Dartmouth stage on Nov. 15, will draw on his lifetime of experience with theater.
Everyone can enjoy watching a teenager who’s struggling with an identity crisis on TV. What’s not so fun to watch is a show that itself is struggling with an identity crisis. “The Politician” is striving for the former, but has ended up with the latter. The result is a show having an identity crisis about a gaggle of teens who are similarly confused.
As students arrived on campus this fall, they were greeted by several changes impacting the College. These included the new restrictions on dorm and house center access, the settlement of the sexual misconduct class action lawsuit against the College and the implementation of the new Chosen Name and Identity initiative. Earlier this term, The Dartmouth surveyed the student body on their opinions regarding these three topics. The following article presents some of the results.
The Dartmouth Mental Health Student Union has introduced “Late Night Solace,” the only current peer-support mental health program on campus. MHU was launched last fall to increase awareness about the importance of mental health on campus and promote accessibility to mental health services.
Last Thursday, former Massachusetts governor Bill Weld, one of the few Republicans challenging President Trump for the GOP’s 2020 nomination, spoke at a College Republicans event in Moore Hall. Advertised as a policy talk instead of a campaign event, Weld spoke on his views regarding the need for climate change action and answered a series of questions from the audience.
Executive vice president and chief financial officer Rick Mills held a town hall in Spaulding Auditorium yesterday, covering topics ranging from the College’s Green Energy Project to the United Way Campaign. The town hall, attended by roughly 90 faculty, staff and community members, also featured a speech and question and answer session from Thayer School of Engineering dean Alexis Abramson.
It’s hard not to be impressed by the multi-billion-dollar movie empire Tyler Perry has built. Last Saturday, Perry held a gala celebrating the expansion of his studio headquarters in Atlanta, which spans some 330 acres, complete with 12 sound stages and massive complete replica set pieces for his upcoming shows. The studio complex is larger than Paramount’s, Warner Brothers’ and Walt Disney’s Burbank filming lots combined.
The protests that have wracked Hong Kong since June have been receiving support from a broad range of voices in the West, with everyone rightly joining in on the feel-good support of democracy against tyranny. However, while attention has been turned toward the fight for freedom in Hong Kong, the public has largely been distracted from mainland China’s insidious erosion of some of those very same freedoms in their own countries. China’s growing influence over what can and cannot be said is a frightening trend.
Many college campuses have high rates of depression, anxiety and other mental health issues, and Dartmouth is no exception. The College does a lot to attempt to get ahead of these issues at the beginning of freshman year, but things can still be quite challenging for sophomores. Does Dartmouth’s focus on the newest class cause sophomores to fall through the cracks?
“Vox clamantis in deserto,” or, “A voice crying in the wilderness,” is Dartmouth’s motto, which takes hold in the hearts of those who have graced its campus. Our curricula and our extracurriculars are tailored to help develop this strong voice — the same one we should be using to speak out against injustices and rally support for the issues we are passionate about.
It is not a well-known fact that Dartmouth hosted a small cohort of women exchange students starting in 1968 before its official inception as a coeducational institution in the fall of 1972. In recent years, Dartmouth has nearly equal numbers of women and men, a norm that is in part due to these trailblazers who made the first incursions onto Dartmouth’s all-male campus and shaped Dartmouth into the school it is today.
Fall is the season of change. Musically, Post Malone has changed from a hardcore rap/pop mogul to a gentle sad boy with his new album “Hollywood’s Bleeding,” released earlier this fall. His third album reflects complex emotions of melancholia and regret, differing profoundly from the aggressive, angry lyrics of his past two albums.
