“Yeah, I can’t believe they did that. It’s so…”
Seeing so many freshmen on campus in the past week made me reminisce on what my freshman fall was like. Before I began looking for any and all club sports and extracurricular activities to join, most of my time was just spent in classes. I remember really enjoying my Writing 5, “Contemporary Moral Issues.” We’d spend several weeks tackling big issues — physician-assisted suicide, capital punishment, abortion — and consider the legal and moral implications of each.
Can a moped inspire change? Concept artist Eric Van Hove says yes.
Walking into Yorgos Lanthimos’s film “The Favourite,” a film that is a part of this year’s Telluride at Dartmouth film series, I knew very little other than that the film was a historical drama featuring actress Emma Stone. I expected a typical historical drama, overplaying archaic customs to pander to the audience’s desire to get a glimpse of what we, in the 21st century, romanticize Europe to have been like hundreds of years ago: exaggerated British accents, dainty china sets and constant tea parties, dabbing at tears with handkerchiefs and the like.
The Hood Downtown, the Hood Museum of Art’s temporary exhibition space, closed on Sept.13 after a send-off reception that included talks by John Stomberg, the director of the museum, and a showcase of what is to come with the new museum building.
“Imagine that an alien from Mars arrives and you can communicate [with] them, inform them, discuss politics with them only through movies.”
Pending approval from the town of Hanover, Dartmouth’s west end construction may begin as soon as the new year.
Dartmouth hosted 25 young African leaders over the summer through its partnership with the Young African Leaders Initiative’s Mandela Washington Fellowship.
Deer sightings in Hanover may not occur as frequently this year. On Aug. 29, the town of Hanover administered an additional 100 deer hunting permits for use this season. Each additional permit allows a hunter to harvest two extra deer from the town’s Deer Management Area, Hanover senior planner Vicki Smith said.
Dartmouth women’s rugby took down three-time defending national champions Quinnipiac University 40-22 in Hamden, Connecticut on Saturday, Sept. 8. Last November, Quinnipiac defeated the Big Green 29-20 in the NIRA Championship. This loss was their only defeat last year, as they finished the 2017-18 season 8-1. Entering this season, Dartmouth was second in the NIRA preseason rankings behind Quinnipiac. After this victory, the team is now ranked first, with Quinnipiac falling to third.
No, it isn’t basketball season yet, and yes, I can still find enough to talk about with respect to the college basketball off-season, more popularly known as football season.
If you were to ask college football fans across the country, “Which fan base is least realistic about the current state of its program?” I’d be willing to bet one school would come up significantly more often than any other — the University of Michigan. The Wolverines boast one of the most impressive resumes in college football: the most wins in the country, 42 Big Ten Championships, 11 National Championships and three Heisman Trophy winners. However, much of this success dates to an era long since bygone. One doesn’t have to think very hard to come up with differences between today’s game and that of 1901, when Fielding Yost led the program to a perfect season and outscored opponents 550 to zero.

“To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” is corny but good — a throwback to “Sixteen Candles” or “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” unlike what its misleadingly poetic title might suggest. Most of the online hype praises the film for including an Asian female lead while still remaining accessible to other audiences. It delves into high school issues to which other girls can relate — popularity or lack thereof, embarrassing gossip, complicated family situations, teen angst.
It is easy to argue that for a college approaching its 250th anniversary, the arrival of a new class of students gracing the Green is a humdrum affair in Dartmouth’s very long history. True to Dartmouth’s jolly stereotype, however, the Class of 2022 was welcomed to campus with the same energy, flair and Cascada Best Hits™ tracks that many classes past were introduced to themselves. While so many aspects of a freshman’s first few weeks at the College are painstakingly rehearsed and prepared, the festivities were not unfounded. There truly is cause for optimism at the College today, and the Class of 2022 is in a unique position to take advantage of it.
New Hampshire residents using private wells, especially households with pregnant women or infants, should be attentive to the possibility of arsenic contamination. On Aug. 22, researchers at the Geisel School of Medicine published their findings on the effect of arsenic exposure on infants’ gut microbiomes, the microbes and bacteria occupying the gut. The study found that infants’ gut microbiomes shift after arsenic exposure, leading to potential health risks.
Last month, the College announced that engineering professor Laura Ray was appointed interim dean of the Thayer School of Engineering, a position that she will assume on Oct. 29. She will serve as dean through June 2019 or until a new dean is appointed.
Women’s suffrage accomplished far more than simply giving women the right to vote, according to a new working paper.
