In April, Luke Cuomo ’20 and Ariela Kovary ’20 were elected as Student Assembly president and vice president, respectively. They ran on a campaign that advocated for the creation of a unified sexual misconduct policy, subsidized bus tickets for the Dartmouth Coach, and increasing the value of Dartmouth Dining Services’ meal swipes. They said that this summer they have begun laying the groundwork for creating a central network for class syllabi and organizing an orientation session for incoming freshmen to learn more about how to get involved in Student Assembly.
Forty-eight percent of the admitted Class of 2023 will receive need-based scholarships from Dartmouth. Through the senior class gift, the Class of 2019 is attempting to support the Class of 2023. Seniors can choose to make a gift of any amount but are encouraged to donate $20.19 to honor their class. The senior class gift is an annual tradition of raising financial aid funds through the Dartmouth College Fund to support the incoming class at the College.
The Dartmouth Center for Social Impact is working with the Council for Student Organizations to create a new joint process to recognize student service groups starting in the fall. Even with this new process for recognition — which gives these groups an official affiliation with the College as well as more resources — many student service groups have been left without clear sources of funding for their off-campus operations.
Green Key is one of the most anticipated weekend of the year — the Programming Board’s concert featuring national headliners, the Frat Row block party and free food from local restaurants can feel like a much-needed reprieve from the monotony and isolation of attending college in the woods.
Dartmouth’s Office of General Counsel recently released a draft of a new Unified Sexual Misconduct Policy and Procedures in order to get feedback about the proposed policies. However, members of the student body have expressed concerns that students have not adequately been able to offer feedback on the draft, which was written as part of the College’s new Campus Climate and Culture Initiative. This criticism comes after College President Phil Hanlon delivered a keynote speech at a summit on sexual assault and sexual harassment in higher education at the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD earlier this month.

Dartmouth community members now have the opportunity to publicly record their volunteering hours. Through the Call to Serve, a year-long initiative that asks the Dartmouth community to contribute a collective 250,000 hours of public service, the Alumni Council hopes to prove that universities can be at the heart of change. Participants can choose to volunteer at projects located near them and log their service hours through the Call to Serve website.
Spaulding High School senior Caroline Dillon is working to make New Hampshire schools a little more female friendly. Dillon helped craft Senate Bill 142, which was recommended to pass unanimously on Feb. 14 within the Senate’s Committee for Education and Workforce Development. It requires feminine hygiene products to be provided in the restrooms of public middle and high schools.
Margaret Olivarez, a third-grade teacher at Copperfield Elementary School in Austin, Texas, wanted to get her elementary school students to be involved in the school district’s “College Shirt Wednesdays,” an initiative designed to frame higher education as a real possibility for underprivileged students. The Dartmouth registrar, along with more than 30 other universities, helped make this task a little easier by donating a much-needed supply of t-shirts.
Russian professor Lynn Patyk believes that things that appear to be unambiguous moral evils — like terrorism — are more complicated than we make them out to be. Her research focuses on the ways in which modern terrorism has been shaped by literary narratives. In her first-year seminar, Russian 7.01 “Who is the Terrorist?” and Russian 10, “Russian Civilization,” Patyk teaches how “early thinkers” like Russian authors Mikhail Bulgakov and Fyodor Dostoevsky can shed light on Russia’s political ethos. She aims to trace terrorism back to its earliest roots — a mode of popular dissent.
According to a recent study, children aren’t pestering their parents for sugary cereal just because of the taste — a team of researchers from the Geisel School of Medicine found that flashy television advertisements aimed at young viewers are contributing to preschoolers’ consumption of high-sugar cereals.
Phyllis Deutsch became a lecturer for the Institute of Writing and Rhetoric in 2017 after retiring from her position as the editor-in-chief of the University Press of New England.

By 2020, two design and engineering students hope to have made campus a little happier. Julia Huebner ’20 and Sophie Frey ’20 formed the Collis Wall Project earlier this term to build a piece of public art in the form of a Rube Goldberg machine — a device that performs a simple task through a chain reaction —in the Collis Center by June of 2020. According to Huebner, they have enlisted four other student designers to help with the project.
Visitors to the College who have cars might have one less problem to worry about. Dartmouth transportation services established 12 new metered parking spots between McNutt Hall and Robinson Hall early last week. This change occurred after an 18-month pilot program conducted by the department that tested the impact of replacing four short-term parking spaces with metered ones on Cemetery Lane.
The 2018 Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded on Oct. 2 for research in the field of laser physics. American physicist Arthur Ashkin received half of the prize for his discovery of real-life optical tweezers, while the other half was shared by Canadian physicist Donna Strickland and French physicist Gerard Mourou for their method of generating high-intensity optical pulses that can move matter.
“We are all playing catch-up with the tobacco industry — the regulators, general public, other policy makers and media,” director of the Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Tobacco Products Mitchell Zeller ’79 said in his Sept. 28 talk on tobacco in today’s America. “These are extremely smart people, and they have a 75- to 100-year head start on regulation.”
