From the homecoming bonfire to commencement, class councils play a major part in the organization of class events during students' first and fourth years. But due to the D-Plan and a lack of a concrete agenda for the junior and sophomore years, council activity suffers during those times.
What started out as an event to provide first-year students with a chance to hear upperclassmen talk about relationships and sex at Dartmouth turned into a forum for older students to voice their personal views on the subject, as groups gathered Monday and Tuesday night for a Sexual Abuse Awareness Program-sponsored event billed, "Sex, Relationships & the Social Scene at Dartmouth."
Professor John Esposito, a professor of International Affairs and Islamic Studies at Georgetown University, added to a chorus of recent speeches questioning U.S. policy on Iraq in a lecture last night that focused primarily on analysis of factors leading up Sept. 11.
A flood of license plate thefts -- 25 in total -- have taken place at A-Lot and Webster Avenue since the beginning of the term, and many students believe that the thief is motivated by a desire to collect all 50 states' license plates.
Librarian of the College Richard Lucier addressed all library employees yesterday morning and the Student Assembly last evening to clarify the impact of the $1 million budget cuts that the library must make over the next two fiscal years.
The enticement of looking beyond the familiar and re-examining the world from new perspectives lies at the heart of the work of Mexican painter, Jos Clemente Orozco. Between 1927 and 1934, Orozco made a name for himself in the United States, taking advantage of an American interest in all things Mexican while seizing the opportunity to expand the realm of his own artistic vision.
Earlier this year, I wrote a column in response to demands for Asian-American studies (The Dartmouth, Jan. 31, "Thoughts on Ethnic Studies"). In it, I noted with concern the vulnerability of such programs to political ideologies and raised doubts over their intellectual merit. As the debate died down at the end of Spring term, people reassured me that ethnic studies meant simply the study of ethnicity. Others scoffed at me for believing that disinterested knowledge was either possible or desirable. So I decided to do some further investigation. The recently concluded "Race Matters" conference allowed me to hear about ethnic studies from its most prominent professors. What the likes of Evelyn Hu-DeHart and Carol Boyce Davies said leaves me with little doubt over the nature of their discipline. My initial remarks were perhaps too kind.
When Barbara Streisand starts raising money to oppose deposing a man whose name she can't spell right ("Sadam" Hussein) and the president gives a 30 minute speech about Iraq without once pronouncing "nuclear" correctly, you know that there are major transparency issues surrounding the current debate on Iraq. Yet to many it seems clear that Bush would take advantage of any international crisis to divert attention from his agenda of turning the FBI into a Gestapo, stealing from the old and sick and strangling cute little woodland creatures in his spare time. It almost makes me want to write a check to the Democratic National Committee. Somebody's got to make the world safe for teachers' unions, trial lawyers and oppressed minorities everywhere. Why not? It worked in Germany for the Social Democrats.
Polluted waters. Acid rain. Endangered species. Global warming. Habitat destruction.
Perhaps it was his campaign propaganda picturing him with College President James Wright, or maybe it was the speech that largely centered around his biceps that won over the freshmen. Whatever it was, newly-elected 2006 Class President Noah Riner said he is excited about the opportunity to serve his class.
The value of College President James Wright's compensation package has climbed steadily since he took office in 1998, hitting $490,682 in 2001. But neither the amount nor the increases are unique in the Ivy League, where compensations are generally well above the national average.
Almost two-and-a-half years after being mandated by the Board of Trustees, individual reports detailing required physical updates and improvements to coed, fraternity and sorority physical plants will finally be released later this term.
In a campus visit plugging New Hampshire's Democratic candidates and urging Dartmouth students to vote in several close state races, Sen. Joseph Lieberman (D-Conn.) also criticized the White House for focusing on the war on terrorism rather than the sagging economy.
After listening to spirited arguments over the moral justification of pre-emptive military action against Iraq nearly 300 members of both the Dartmouth and Upper Valley communities voted overwhelmingly that such an attack was not justified.
When she bends, you think, "How deep can deep be?" "Her arms curve like ancient tree branches; her back melts into that sinuous posture;" she is "possessed by do-or-die flamenco passion." These are all comments -- in the Village Voice, the San Fransisco Examiner and the New York Times, respectively -- on Soledad Barrio, the premiere female flamenco dancer of Noche Flamenca. The dance troupe that made the Moore Theatre seem not only intimate but also hot these past Friday and Saturday evenings.
Does anyone else remember the small building that once stood humbly at the entrance to Bradley Court? We miss Kiewit, and we are certain that if students can form a sentimental attachment to what was once a rather awkward, aesthetically unpleasing edifice housing Computer Services, then it is likely that many have a vested interest in the survival of Sanborn Library. Though she may (literally) live in the shadows of the eminent Baker/Berry Library complex, Sanborn offers an escape from the modern world that the sterile Berry superstructure seems to embody.
Corporate recruiting season is upon us.
Former Dartmouth provost Lee Bollinger was inaugurated as the 19th president of Columbia University in a ceremony on Oct. 3., in which he delivered a speech that emphasized the importance of affirmative action.
The Jewish Sound Archive, a website created by Thayer Professor Alex Hartov and co-organized by Asian and Middle Eastern Studies Professor Lewis Glinert, will make its online debut this term, serving as a resource of Jewish music, history and culture.
