Cycling Team Wins National Chamionship

(05/15/02 9:00am)

Dartmouth College is now home to eight proud bearers of cycling's coveted stars and stripes jersey. After three grueling days of competition in Burlington, Vt. this past weekend, the Dartmouth cycling team brought home the gold, winning the Division II team title at the Collegiate Cycling National Championships over 25 highly competitive schools from across the country.

A Traditional Spring

(05/15/02 9:00am)

Last term I wrote an article titled "A Traditional Winter," in which, as a service to the freshman class, I highlighted some of the more important Dartmouth winter traditions. And though no one told me that they appreciated the article, my sources say that it was well received (by "my sources," I of course mean "my imagination"). Now that we find ourselves thoroughly digested in the intestinal tract of spring, I think we can agree it is an appropriate time for me to talk about Dartmouth spring traditions and to stop using bodily-function metaphors.

New Locks, New Problems

Dartmouth has recently decided, as part of its new door lock initiative, to end deliveries right to students' doors. Instead, students must get up from their work and go down to the door to get their pizza or chop suey. This new policy seems little more than just another inconvenience students have to learn to tolerate at Dartmouth. However, Dean of Residential Life Martin Redman's comments on the new policy really hit a sore spot with me: "When I order food from Panda House, they deliver it to my door. They don't deliver it to my bedroom. The New York Times comes to the doorstep too."

In the mid 1980s, two alcohol-education researchers named Wesley Perkins and Alan Berkowitz hit upon a revolutionary idea: instead of trying to scare college students into not drinking, it might be more effective to tell them how little their peers were drinking. If they listened, the theory went, the psychology of peer pressure would mean that they soon start drinking less.
