Discussion surrounding race and diversity is often centered around the most inflammatory issues that make the headlines. What often isn’t covered is the day-to-day interactions and experiences that racial and ethnic minorities face that make them feel unwelcome in places that they want to call their home.
At Dartmouth, courage is ubiquitous. Students and faculty members alike are constantly summiting new peaks, both literal and figurative. Because courage is so common here, it can often go unnoticed or unrecognized. However, there is one award that recognizes courageous acts in a unique way. The C. Everett Koop Courage Award was established in 2005 to honor students and faculty members who have shown courage in the quest for better health care.
Traditionally, the outdoors have been a male-controlled space. History remembers men as the explorers, the athletes, the scientists and women as the teachers, the nurses, the wives. However, the lines between men and the outdoors and women and the indoors have been blurred and bent in recent years — empowering women to take on roles in spaces where society had not commonly accepted them. The Dartmouth Mountaineering Club has contributed to this movement in its own small way, the best way it knows how: by climbing cliffs and breaking ceilings.
Ah, the Golden Globes. The boozy, raucous, often unpredictable version of the Oscars with a hint of the Emmys, handing out awards for both film and television to Hollywood’s chummy elite as they plow themselves on prominently placed bottles of Moët.
Just before midnight last Thursday, as I was settling into bed, I decided to take a quick look at the news. And there was the top story. Qasem Soleimani. Dead.
What is it about Pete Buttigieg that makes him so attractive to Dartmouth students? To the untrained eye, there’s something for almost every kind of voter to hate; he’s polling at 7.7 percent nationally for a reason. Yet, 17 percent of Dartmouth students prefer him for the presidency, according to a poll published by The Dartmouth last fall.
Dave Bucci, a former psychological and brain sciences professor and department chair who died by suicide last October, grew “deeply distressed” after being mentioned several times in a class action sexual misconduct lawsuit filed against the College and fell into the depression he had been treated for years prior, according to a recent report in the New York Times.
While the academic term concluded for most Dartmouth students by the end of the fall, several classes continued their studies abroad, traveling to various locations across the globe for on-the-ground experiential programs that immersed them in the political, economic and cultural fabric of the countries they visited. A group of economics students ventured to Argentina on a trip sponsored by Dartmouth’s Political Economy Project, and public policy students spent two weeks traversing Europe, conducting research in Greece, Switzerland and Germany.
“She’s the only one with a heart of gold and a fearless courage to face the powerful,” Hawaii-based musician Billie Sky sang of Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) before a town hall she hosted at the Top of the Hop on Sunday night.
The town of Hanover once again has a bookstore. Still North Books & Bar, which occupies some of the space formerly used by the Dartmouth Bookstore, held a soft opening on Dec. 19. The store’s owner, Allie Levy ’11, said that there will be additions to the store’s food and beverage selection over the next few months, with a grand opening celebration in the works for February.
Just three miles from campus, an electrical fire and propane leak caused an explosion at the Element Hotel in Lebanon, which injured eight guests and two firefighters this past Christmas Eve. The hotel faced extensive internal and external damage and, according to the Lebanon Fire Department, cannot be safely re-occupied at this time.
Sathvik Namburar Med ’22 appeared on Jeopardy! on Nov. 19, winning his first game. Namburar lost his second game, though he said that he still loved the experience and appreciated all it taught him. The Dartmouth sat down with Namburar to ask about his two games, Alex Trebek and advice for viewers playing along at home for today’s start of the “Greatest of All Time” tournament.
I always look forward to winter break for many reasons, an unexpected one of which is Oscar-bait. Oscar-bait season is the first three weeks in December, when movie production studios are racing to put out their “best” films of the year before the Oscar qualification deadline on the last day of the year. Typically, films that receive Oscar nominations are released between August and December.
The new year means new beginnings and a desire to transform oneself for the better. Some people go to the gym for a week or two, some people make an effort to be nicer to others and some people make an effort to put down the bottle. College basketball in 2019 was all about the big stars. Duke University was in the top five of the AP poll last year due to Zion Williamson’s heroics, and Carsen Edwards went on a scoring streak for Purdue University in the NCAA Tournament that ultimately fell at the hands of eventual national champions the University of Virginia. So how did the college basketball world change from last season to this season?
Over the last few weeks, the Dartmouth men’s hockey team (7-5-2, 5-3-1 Eastern College Athletic Conference) has racked up some impressive victories.
Many students traveled during the six weeks of winter break between Thanksgiving and New Year’s, and the men’s basketball team was no exception. Dartmouth kicked off its winterim with a five-game road trip spanning from Florida to Maine, which featured a few close losses, a dominant 33-point victory and a 19-point defeat.
Women’s basketball has kept busy this winter break, traveling as far as Chicago to play a total of 10 games. The team ended its nonconference schedule with a 6-7 record. Now, the Big Green prepares for important Ivy League games starting with a home game against Harvard University on this Saturday as the team seeks to improve upon its fifth place finish in the Ivy League last year.
