Dick's House scores well with students

(10/20/05 9:00am)

Students dissatisfied with the care they have received at Dick's House finally had an opportunity to voice their frustrations this past spring through the first ever web-based patient satisfaction survey. The results of the survey, made public to the student body in a presentation this week, indicate that more students are happy with Dick's House than some might guess.

Claflin Jewelry Studio welcomes both the artsy and the inept

(10/19/05 9:00am)

I entered the Claflin Jewelry Studio without any jewelry-making experience, knowledge or talent. After recovering from the intimidating presence of sharp tools, flame torches, safety goggles and an emergency eye wash, I surveyed the two rows of workbenches for a moment with shop director Jennifer Major, who freely praised the studio's "incredibly varied visitors."

(10/19/05 9:00am)

Dartmouth equestrian rode to a close third on Saturday at Colby Sawyer College, finishing only three points behind the region-leading University of Vermont team and a single point behind Mount Ida College. Ten of the 13 schools in the region competed in the meet. "Overall, the team rode well on Saturday," co-captain Janelle Moerlein '06 said. "We had some tough draws, but people rode really well and placed well on horses that people from other teams had not been able to ride."

The Big Green cross country teams ran into a nationally stacked field at the NCAA Pre-Nationals in Terre Haute, Ind., this Saturday, but proved up to the challenge with strong finishes on both the men's and women's side. The men finished fifth out of 33 in the blue race, propelling them into the top 15 Division I programs nationally, while the women placed 19th out of 34 in the white race, led by the top-10 finish of Melanie Schorr '06.

Why the Wacky Weather?

(10/19/05 9:00am)

Since when did our own weather patterns begin to mirror "The Day After Tomorrow?" The 2004 blockbuster film about a meteorological apocalypse no longer seems like a complete computer-generated Hollywood fantasy. In the aftermath of recent severe weather events, spanning from the Gulf Coast to right here in Hanover to elsewhere, I finally appreciate the value of the hyperbolic film, beyond its entertaining wolf-related action sequences. With humans exacerbating the rise of global temperatures, we are feeling today the meteorological effects of an occasionally abusive relationship between man and nature. This relationship needs to undergo therapy.

Fred Wilson exhibit at Hood abstractly examines Dartmouth history

(10/18/05 9:00am)

Whether abstract or formally structured, art is difficult to contain. Heated arguments over what can be considered art continue today because a universal definition cannot be applied or accepted. The boundaries of art are infinite; it has even been said that art is never really finished, but rather abandoned. By embracing Fred Wilson's latest installation, the Hood Museum and the Dartmouth community have recognized the renewed potential of pieces of art as well as acknowledged aspects of our history long forgotten. On view since October 4, "So Much Trouble In The World -- Believe It or Not!" examines Dartmouth's history reflected through the Hood Museum's diverse collection of relics and artifacts.

Men's rugby stomps UMass, loses key player in Foda

(10/18/05 9:00am)

Dartmouth men's rugby rounded out the regular season Saturday with a 36-0 win over the University of Massachusetts Minutemen. The win gave Dartmouth a final record of 4-1, its only loss suffered to Army in the second game played. The dominating win, which would normally be celebrated as a fantastic end to the season, was bittersweet as the Dartmouth ruggers lost starting forward Omar Foda '07 for the season.
