"Alternative Christmas music" is one of the best oxymorons I can think of. It's really tough to imagine a Christmas song that goes beyond the melodies Americans of every religion have had drummed into their heads since day one, and even harder to think up "alternative" holiday sentiments.
There was no Dick Vitale talking about who would be cutting down the nets at the Final Four, and no one was likely scrambling to set up an office pool as the teams were announced, but last Monday's NCAA tournament selection show had all the excitement of March Madness for the Dartmouth men's soccer team.
Mike Oulette '06 one-timed a pass from classmate Hugh Jessiman '06 into the back of the net at 2:39 in an unexpected overtime period to give men's hockey a shocking come-from-behind win against top-ranked Boston College.
To the Editor:
I have to say that I am honestly appalled to see what our College administration has done now. Continuing its tradition of unilateral action with a lack of student input, the administration (mainly Dean of the College James Larimore, Director of Athletics and Recreation Joann Harper and her staff, with the tacit approval of Provost Barry Scherr, the chair of the College's budget committee and our President James Wright) has decided to cut the men's and women's varsity swimming and diving programs.
As details of budget cuts emerge and arguments escalate, administrators are apologizing for short-term difficulties while reminding everyone to focus on broader goals. But the long-term vision is too blurry to guide the College, and every member of the community must accept that there is a pressing need to clarify that vision.
A study co-authored by Dartmouth economics Professor Patricia Anderson found that the more hours a child's mother works outside the home, the more likely it is that the child will become overweight.
Despite a significant change in leadership that ousted many of its old guard and replaced them with a young and relatively inexperienced cadre of executives, Student Assembly has been characterized thus far by a strong commitment not only to continuing many of last year's programs but negotiating between students, administrators and faculty.
The holiday season is drawing near, and one student group is taking advantage of the holiday spirit to share its culture with people of other ethnic and religious backgrounds.
The Dartmouth Bookstore announced it may stop selling textbooks entirely by Summer term due to the College's decision to continue allowing departments to decide when to give book lists to bookstores, as well as a declining textbook business.
Nearly 150 students gathered outside Parkhurst Hall at noon yesterday to protest Monday's announcement that the College plans to cut the men's and women's varsity swimming and diving programs in March 2003.
There is something truly risky about showing James Bond in a moment of weakness. As a cultural icon he always seems to land on his feet, no matter what ridiculous stunt he needs to pull to do so. For Lee Tamahori, the director of "Die Another Day," however, the risk pays off.

The Dartmouth Editorial Board asserts Nov. 22 that the College's "broader social and moral obligations" should lead us to divest from tobacco companies because of "negative public health consequences."
Mr. Hussein! I just found out that you had an email account. Like all other Americans who fulfill our patriotic duty to shape foreign policy in terms of John Wayne movies, I had just assumed that that leather holster you wear holds some sort of large-caliber handgun. You know, as sort of an insurance policy against the help selling out to the Mossad, CIA or MI-6. Instead, it holds a Blackberry Mobile Communicator, to judge from one of the press releases from uruklink.net. Responding to a sympathetic email from Christopher Love, your American sleeper agent -- I mean, "brother in the family of mankind" -- you electronically clucked your tongue at President Bush's "logic of war" in response to the Sept. 11 attacks. Obviously, there's logic and legitimacy behind your war against Iran in 1980, your gassing of the Kurds and your war against Kuwait in 1990.
There are few things that are as constant in a Dartmouth student's life as the ringing of Baker Tower's bells. Whether it be "You Are My Sunshine" or the alma mater, Dartmouth students can count on hearing those bells every day.
Fall-term Montgomery Fellow Judy Baca may return to Dartmouth as early as next spring to begin work on a mural in the new Berry Library that would incorporate input from students and faculty.
