About midway through my senior spring term, I took a trip to the PetSmart in West Lebanon to pick up a pet snail. I had deemed snails, due to their low-maintenance nature, the perfect animal companion for whatever transition from college to actual adulthood awaited me, and my sights settled quickly upon a yellow, nickel-sized, relatively active specimen. I named him Snoople — Snoople the Snail.

The term we’ve all been waiting for is finally here. Since we arrived at Dartmouth — or even before, during tours or information sessions — upperclassmen and alumni told us that sophomore summer would be the best 10 weeks of our college experience. Expectations are high as we text home to convince our high school friends that summer school is a blessing, not a curse. But if two years at Dartmouth have taught us anything, it’s that 10 weeks fly by in an instant. How can we make each moment last, knowing that in two short months the Class of 2021 will disperse to foreign study destinations and internships around the country?

Amid a nationwide increase in cases challenging results of college-led sexual misconduct investigations, last month, the College responded to the most recent case challenging its own disciplinary process. On April 30, the College filed its response to a lawsuit alleging that it led an “unfair” and biased investigation resulting in the wrongful expulsion of a male student accused of sexual assault. Dartmouth has denied the claims put forth in the complaint and has demanded a trial by jury “on all claims so triable.”
In an effort to initiate a campus-wide discussion on sexual violence, the Student and Presidential Committee on Sexual Assault will lead the College’s annual Take Back the Night March and Night of Reflection on the evening of April 26.

In an effort to expedite the ongoing cleanup of Rennie Farm, a site where the Dartmouth Medical School disposed of test animal carcasses in the 1960s and 1970s, the College has obtained an easement that will enable the College to treat contaminated groundwater on an 11-acre property abutting the existing treatment site. The easement marks an additional step in a process initiated by the College in 2017 to reduce levels of 1,4-dioxane in the groundwater near Rennie Farm.
