Last Thursday, Sylvia Spears, director of the Office of Pluralism and Leadership, gave a speech at the Pan Asian Council's community dinner. Among other things, she spoke about self-segregation and the importance of being allies when incidents of prejudice or discrimination arise on campus. According to data presented at the dinner, 70 percent of the Class of 2011 claimed to value "diversity" while 90 percent cited a desire to become more "cultured" as one of their collegiate goals.
Yardsale. Eat it. Bite it. Bite it hard. Take a digger. A huge digger. If you've ever been skiing, you know how easy it is to wipe out, fall, whatever. One minute your Dumb Friend is tucking a cross-cut, the next second someone comes over the rise and takes him out: radius, ulna and ski poles snap. Hopefully you've never been that friend.

It's the last Toe to Toe of 2007, and that can only mean one thing: the first annual Toe-to-Toe year in review. A lot has happened in the world of sports these past 12 months, which begs the question, what were the year's biggest stories? Schmidley will uncover the five stories to watch in 2008; I'm going to take us back, and in the next 500 words, reveal the biggest story of 2007.
Last year, the Dartmouth women's basketball team got off to a slow start but turned its season around after defeating Northeastern and going on to compile a winning record and a second-place finish in the Ivy League. The Big Green was determined to mirror this result this year, as co-captain Kristen Craft '08 stayed on the court through the end of the contest despite a bloody nose, but Dartmouth was denied by Northeastern in an entertaining game, 57-50.
Harvard squeaked away last Tuesday with a 2-1 victory over the Big Green at home. Before the game, the Crimson was ranked second in the ECAC and Dartmouth was eighth. Harvard preserved its unbeaten season, improving to 7-0-0 with the win.
Dartmouth slipped to 3-4 on the season while Stony Brook earned its first win of the year.
Dartmouth (4-4-1, 2-4-1 ECACHL) came into the game having won big over Thanksgiving break against the Bentley Falcons, 5-1, in a game that was as lopsided as the score seemed. Harvard (6-2-1, 5-2-1 ECACHL) came in having tied Yale 3-3 last Wednesday, but also having knocked off traditional Hockey East power Boston University 2-1 during the preceding week.
For both teams, the BC meet marked an improvement over their performances on Nov. 17, when they lost to tough Division I competition in Bristol, R.I.
