Earlier this month, the Early Warning Project released their ninth annual Statistical Risk Assessment for Countries at Risk for Mass Killing. The project, a collaboration between the Dickey Center for International Understanding and the Simon-Skjodt Center for the Prevention of Genocide at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, seeks to identify the early warning signs of genocide and mass atrocities, through data and research to hopefully prevent them, according to government professor and chair Ben Valentino.
For a typical Dartmouth student, three rigorous courses over the span of 10 weeks, in addition to balancing extracurricular and social activities, can be overwhelming. Nevertheless, some Dartmouth students opt to add one more class to their schedule, resulting in the dreaded four-course term.
After a career as an intelligence officer in Afghanistan, Justin Mankin began studying climate science and eventually joined the geography department at Dartmouth. Now a professor and doctor, Mankin leads the Dartmouth Climate Modeling and Impacts Group. The group’s research centers on understanding how climate change affects both people and ecosystems. He published a study, titled “National-scale attribution of historical climate damages,” which studied how climate damages, such as emissions, could be attributed to specific countries. This research was discussed at a 2022 United Nations conference, and informed the creation of a loss and damage fund that provides financial assistance to low-income countries to rebuild infrastructure after climate crises.The Dartmouth sat down with Professor Mankin to discuss his research and opinions on the future of climate science.

You glance around the room, when suddenly, you get the feeling that someone is watching you. You turn your head, making eye contact with the person next to you.

In small groups of three, students began rotating between stations, sampling different types of sugars, salts, maple syrups, spices and apples. Afterwards, they began to input their observations into a spreadsheet, including the color, flavor, smell and any other observations.
Glancing across a Dartmouth classroom, it can be hard not to notice the different ways students take notes. Some hands, with pen or pencil in hand, rapidly fly across a sheet of paper, while others quickly type on a keyboard. However a student takes notes, it is clear that note-taking is a central component of college life and essential to a student’s understanding of class material. Nonetheless, the introduction of new technology in the past few decades has drastically changed how students take notes. According to a survey of graduate students at the University of North Carolina, 63% of students now use digital technology in the classroom. But which method is the most effective? And beyond that, how much should you write, and when should you study your notes?
When the clock strikes 11 during an on-night, mobs of freshmen fill the streets of Dartmouth’s campus. Instead of heading to tails or to play pong in a fraternity basement, they flock to the Choates or the Fayesment. Even during the era of the frat ban, Dartmouth students still find a way to party.
