In its final two matches of the season and the last for graduating seniors Katie Hirsch '08, Sandy Barbut '08 and Frances Samolowicz '08, the Dartmouth women's volleyball team swept through league rivals Cornell and Columbia at home on Friday and Saturday. The wins assured the Big Green (15-9, 8-6 Ivy) of fourth place in the conference, its best finish in eight years.

The Green sprang into brilliance Sunday night in observance of the major Indian and Nepalese holiday festival of Diwali. Diwali, which occurs in late autumn, celebrates the triumph of light over darkness and good over evil. On Sunday night, the second day of the week-long holiday, participants marked the occasion by lighting hundreds of candles along the pathways in the green. At the center, candles were arranged in the form of the auspicious symbol Ohm and to spell out the word Shanti, which means peace. The event was organized by the Upper-Valley Shanti organization, which consists of both college students and local families.
