Matthews: Systemic Sexism

(05/25/20 6:00am)

When I was a junior in college, the issue of the day on campus was an innovative new technique that the Hanover Police were threatening to deploy to crack down on underage drinking. The police department had announced that if underage students were found to be drinking in college Greek houses, the students themselves would not be the only ones held responsible — the Greek houses that supplied the alcohol would be held responsible as well. In this case, “held responsible” meant that they would be fined. The fine could be as high as six figures. 


Matthews: To the Class of 2017

(04/22/13 2:00am)

The first week of classes during the fall of my senior year, the freshman class received an email containing a song sung in eerie auto-tune warning them that Dartmouth frat brothers were rapists and that there was no hope for reform. ("Verbum Utimum: To the Class of 2014, Oct. 1, 2010) It was a devastating thing to hear as freshmen navigated their first friendships and classes. That a group of anonymous upperclassmen chose to create this song and dump it amongst already overwhelmed freshman struck me as irresponsible and counterproductive.

Matthews: The View from the Balcony

(06/10/11 2:00am)

It's a cool night, typical for June in Hanover. From the balcony of Robinson Hall, I can see that the Green has successfully regrown, covering the scars of Homecoming to appear healthy for graduation. Soon, the Class of 2011 will hide the fatigue of finals and exhaustion of Senior Week to appear as fresh as our grassy carpet as we morph from undergraduates into alumni. In this act, we will once again be reunited just as we were in matriculating, when we stood in former College President James Wright's office and he gave us everything for the price of a handshake and a couple hundred grand.


Shrouded in secrecy?

(05/13/11 2:00am)

Whether it's passing the Sphinx, catching a glimpse of a strange tattoo on the arm of your upperclassman crush or watching your frat brother disappear on a Monday night only to take over the basement a few hours later with a group of seemingly random people, senior societies have a way of making their presence known on campus despite their ostensibly "secret" status. Some students didn't have a clue they existed until tapping began, while others have attended events held by the non-secret co-ed society Casque and Gauntlet since freshman year. Still others may only be learning about the existence of senior societies right now, as they are reading this issue. Regardless, societies add a weird twist to Dartmouth's unusual social system.

Peers describe Zywicki '88 as outspoken undergrad

(06/02/09 2:00am)

As a Dartmouth student, Todd Zywicki '88 was known for his outspoken and frank manner the beginnings of a pattern of behavior that marked Zywicki's tenure on the College's Board of Trustees, and may have contributed to the Board's decision not to reelect him to a second term a move unprecedented in recent times. Zywicki's tenure on the Board will end just under two weeks from today.
