Dean Crady, Fall term is ending and you are about to assume one of the most unique and challenging positions in academia. In our last editorial of the year, we thought it important to discuss what will help you succeed at this job. Dartmouth is a living, breathing set of paradoxes: It oscillates between a liberal arts college and world-class university, between a rural haven for academics and a cosmopolitan cultural center, between embracing tradition and embracing progressivism. As the new dean of the College, you will have a short window of time -- a honeymoon period -- to set the tone for your tenure here. If you succeed, you can positively impact Dartmouth where previous administrative leaders have faltered.
"The people of Iowa pick corn, the people of New Hampshire pick presidents," said then-Gov. John H. Sununu in 1988.
With a frustrating loss to the University of Vermont last week, Dartmouth's men's soccer team was bumped out of the NCAA tournament and officially ended the season.
With the win, the Crimson men improve to 3-0 while the women are also undefeated with a 4-0 record. The loss drops the Big Green men to 3-1, while the women are 2-1. The Big Green has never defeated the Crimson.
Having established a fairly solid online fanbase, which allowed them to begin touring across the nation and spreading their funkadelic, hiptastic sound, The Cool Kids still remain relatively unknown within the realm of mainstream music. Going into the show, I didn't really know what to expect. And from the looks of it, I wasn't the only one, as everyone stood (quite awkwardly) milling about waiting for the show to begin. But it wasn't long before Alumni Hall in the Hopkins Center was rocking, filled with dance-busting, finals-procastinating, Dartmouth students.
The Dartmouth Skiway recently finished the first two phases of major renovation to its facilities. The new improvements include the construction of almost 1,400 feet of safety netting on the giant slalom course, tree removal, enlargement of trails, expansion of the area's snowmaking system and re-grading of skiways. The changes, initiated by a request from Skiway general manager Doug Holler and Dartmouth men's alpine ski coach Peter Dodge, will put the race course in-line with the safety requirements of the International Ski Federation. The Dartmouth Skiway is the host of several NCAA ski races and the College's annual Winter Carnival alpine ski races.
Cancer patients from rural areas are diagnosed with cancer earlier than those from urban areas, two Dartmouth Medical School professors discovered. Professors of surgery Sam Finlayson and Ian Paquette helped disprove a long-held belief that rural patients wait longer to report their illness to a doctor.
Computing Services is advising users who depend on either resource to postpone upgrading to Leopard until the compatible software is released.
"'Women of Dartmouth' has been held for several years and we thought it would be great if men could share their stories too," said Zak Kaufman '08, who emceed the event. "We saw the power in that event, and there are phenomenal men at Dartmouth that people don't hear about."
"I think we were more concerned about that in October than we are now," he said. "The contractors are saying we will have it for you."
Following widespread faculty dissatisfaction with a College proposal to reduce healthcare benefits for retiring faculty and staff, the Committee on Faculty has initiated efforts to produce a new, altered version of the plan for review by the Dartmouth financial officers.
It's the most magical time of the year, right? Umm, wrong. The end of Fall term has consistently been the least enjoyable time of my Dartmouth career. You mean to tell me that I'm supposed to go home for a week and then come back and head right into finals? No thanks. Sure, we've got an extra week of post-Thanksgiving class this year, but it's not helping much. My solution? A second Thanksgiving-themed column. And I promise, I'll try not to make it too cliche.
