It’s no secret that off-campus rental housing for students in Hanover is a disaster. We are aware and grateful that Hanover passed a new ordinance last spring at the Town Meeting creating a new position in Town government — a Rental Housing Inspector & Health Officer — dedicated to performing inspections of rental properties. The ordinance requires inspections of rental housing every three years, and problem properties that are repeatedly found to violate applicable habitability requirements are potentially subjected to an annual instead of triannual inspection. The ordinance also provides for fines for violations and the opportunity for properties to be closed to habitation should they be deemed unsafe.

Dartmouth is always under construction. Right now, the Hopkins Center for the Arts, Rauner Special Collections Library and the East Wheelock dorms are all being renovated. In the past four years, the College has built Anonymous Hall, Arthur L. Irving Institute for Energy and Society and the Engineering and Computer Science Center. It has also renovated several existing buildings including Dartmouth Hall, Thornton Hall and the Nelson A. Rockefeller Center for Public Policy and the Social Sciences. Innovation in construction technology — especially concrete — is an important step towards decarbonization for Dartmouth and for the rest of the developed and developing world. Federal investment in research and development will pay dividends for climate and infrastructure.
Re: NLRB rules Dartmouth men’s basketball players are university employees, orders union election
Throughout my first term and a half at Dartmouth, I have consistently felt different. I am not from a large metropolitan city or one of its suburbs. I am not from New England or the Bay Area. I do not come from a long history of wealth. I come from a university town in the South with a population of about 26,000 people.

At Dartmouth, other than making connections with our professors, we primarily interact with peers our age. “Homophily,” or the tendency for people to choose to associate with those similar to them, is common when we make friendships. This is common when it comes to what age group we make friends with. The concept that we must confine ourselves to same-age friendships remains unchallenged on our college campus, where the majority of people are considered to be young adults. Simply put, most of our friendships and close relationships are with other college students — which is natural.
According to previous reporting by The Dartmouth, an ice sculpture carved by members of the Muslim student association, Al-Nur, was vandalized and destroyed over the Winter Carnival weekend by an unnamed suspect.
There seems to be pressure placed upon humanities majors to abandon their studies for STEM fields. I have felt this pressure myself at Dartmouth, the desire to let go of my English major and study something more “practical.” Beyond my doubts, I have also had people tell me that English and writing have no future — that it is best to give up before I pour all of my time and energy into it. It’s not an incredibly outlandish desire, considering the STEM craze that has been ensuing for the past decade, driven by an increase in STEM-only schools and programs. But something in me will not let go. I simply love what I study far too much. After all, what job does not require strong writing and critical thinking skills? As a matter of fact, most employers typically look for candidates with strong written communication skills.
In 2015, the Mirror polled students on three questions — “What are the most taboo topics at Dartmouth?”, “What is something you’ve done that you wouldn’t want your parents to know?” and “What is something you wouldn’t disclose to your closest friends?”
