Believing in a defined Dartmouth is a flaw on our campus and one almost every student sinks into. There are the Dartmouth rampers, those who build up the College to be something it never can fully be: a place of traditions and pong and brotherhood. Then there are the detractors: to them, Dartmouth is ever oppressive, a place of privilege to be dismantled.
In the United States, as in many Anglophone countries, each voter lives within a legislative district and is awarded one vote. The voter then casts that vote for a candidate, and the candidate with the most votes wins. Each district elects one member, has one
Something is rotten in the state of American politics. On both left and right, an old idea is making its way back into vogue. On the right, nationalist and quasi-fascistic politics, the old school us-versus-them thinking that once came neatly packaged in black-and-red armbands over Hugo Boss-designed uniforms worn by goose-stepping soldiers, are back. On the left, socialism, Marxism and associated dogmas are coming back, all with talk of empowerment rather than of gulags and concentration camps. But all of this is essentially one idea: collectivism.
Almost two years ago, a Scottish man named Mark Meechan made and posted a video of his girlfriend’s pug raising its paw in a Nazi salute while he recited hateful and anti-Semitic phrases. Like many, I found his antics offensive.
To Dante Alighieri, Marcus Junius Brutus the Younger was counted as one of the three most accursed men to have lived. A member of the conservative republican faction in the Roman Senate, he is best remembered for his assassination of Gaius Julius Caesar, and for that act he is vilified as a traitor, an assassin, a “regicidenik.” But what is so often dismissed as base treachery can also be seen as an honor of the highest level, an anti-authoritarian act that put principle before person and country before self.
As winter comes, a Sean Bean lookalike wants Dartmouth to get ready.

Sharing photos, charity involvement and foodie culture: the triumvirate that rules the lives of many millennials — at least in the popular imagination — has come together in the startup GiftAMeal, a company co-founded by Aidan Folbe ’19 that has expanded rapidly since its launch last October.
Two Dartmouth alumni spoke at the Republican National Convention and the Democratic National Convention over the past two weeks, delivering a variety of remarks to audiences in Cleveland and Philadelphia respectively.
I, Parker Thornton Richards, do not understand pop culture. That’s essentially the starting premise of this week’s Mirror, centered around the impact of cultural phenomenon amongst Dartmouth students, from late-night viewings of “Game of Thrones” to screenwriting internships. That’s something worth covering. The next Mindy Kaling, Shonda Rhimes or even Fred Rogers (yeah, he went to Dartmouth) might already be amongst us.
Dartmouth’s new School of Graduate and Advanced Studies will open today. Hailed by many graduate students and faculty as an important step in creating a strong culture of research and excellence in graduate study at the College, in its inaugural year, the school will provide a permanent home to the 791 graduate students in the arts and sciences.
It was a hectic few weeks for Fred. He was removed from an overcrowded shelter in Texas by commercial jet to New York, then flown privately to rural Vermont — and all that was before he was abducted from his kennel at the Rutland County Humane Society last week.
When the Class of 2016 entered in 2012, Dartmouth accepted Advanced Placement credits. Twenty-one-year-olds could drink hard alcohol. There was no talk of housing communities, and socializing in Greek houses began immediately without a six-week ban.
The Class of 1978 Life Sciences Center was packed with hundreds of students and faculty yesterday afternoon for the Karen Wetterhahn Science Symposium, an exhibition of undergraduate research in the sciences.
In a survey conducted by The Dartmouth, 342 students shared their perspectives on the College’s campus climate in regards to gender. Amongst the topics considered were Greek life, the College housing system, academic discrimination and counseling and medical services available for people questioning their gender identity. The survey represents approximately eight percent of the student body and was not weighted for demographics.

Administrative bloat has become the calling-card for campus reformers, but here at Dartmouth, the slight increases in staffing numbers are less clear-cut.
