Over the River and Through the Woods to the NCAA's they go

(11/21/05 11:00am)

For the Dartmouth men's cross country team, this will be the longest season it has had in years. Not since 2001 has the Big Green secured a bid to the NCAA Championships, but today, the men will again return to the national stage, running against 30 of the country's top programs in Terre Haute, Ind. For one of Dartmouth's women, however, this will be a second and final time to run at the national level.

The Harms of Categorization

(11/21/05 11:00am)

Humans are categorizing creatures. For whatever Darwinian reason, the ability to distinguish similar entities in our minds was a trait that contributed to our apparent victory in the survival of the fittest. However, what was for millennia a positive survival tool has outlived its use, and the time has come for us to use other powerful tools -- intellect and reason -- to defeat the enemies of modern freedom.

Men's rugby clinches entry into national tourney

(11/18/05 11:00am)

This weekend the Dartmouth Rugby Football Club was the runner-up in the Northeast Championship, clinching a spot in the National Championship to be held this spring. Dartmouth rugby fell to Army in the Northeast Championship Final on Sunday after winning the quarterfinal against the University of Buffalo Saturday afternoon in Amherst, Mass.

Dartmouth figure skaters ice season opener in Ithaca

(11/18/05 11:00am)

In a weekend filled with Big Green sports victories, the Dartmouth figure skating team continued the trend as well as its undefeated streak with an impressive win at the Cornell Invitational in Ithaca, N.Y., this past Saturday. Dartmouth finished a dominating 15 points ahead of second place Delaware and over 40 points ahead of host Cornell.

Big Green football hopes to send off seniors with a win

(11/18/05 11:00am)

Assured of a seventh place Ivy League finish with a 1-5 league record (2-7 overall), a Dartmouth football victory over second-place Princeton (6-3, 4-2 Ivy) Saturday would do nothing to improve the Big Green's league standing. With Brown only needing a victory against Columbia--a team that has been outscored 241-42 in six Ivy contests (all losses)--to clinch an Ivy title, moreover, it seems highly unlikely that Dartmouth will even have the opportunity to spoil Princeton's own championship aspirations.

Verbum Ultimum

(11/18/05 11:00am)

Dartmouth students are known for their "work hard, play hard" mentality and their dominant competitive streak. Nowhere is this more prominent than in the subculture that has sprung up around our favorite weekend -- and weeknight -- activity, pong. The infamous game, during which two sets of partners use ping pong paddles without handles to try and "hit" and "sink" all their opponents' cups, is a very Dartmouth invention. Unlike its more primitive cousin, Beirut, it combines skill, speed and saves with a ready-made social scene. However, despite the positive aspects of pong -- its ties to Dartmouth tradition, the opportunities for social mixing, the slight athletic payoff, its negative qualities can be overwhelming when looked at from a distance. While binge drinking and drinking games are not endemic to Dartmouth, the emphasis we place on an activity that in a single game can put its players in danger of passing the binge drinking mark is troubling.
