The suicide of Bradley Ginsburg, a member of Cornell University's class of 2013, prompted Ginsberg's father to sue Cornell, several university administrators and the city of Ithaca, N.Y., The Cornell Daily Sun reported Friday. Although the bridge where the suicide occurred is owned by the city, the student's father, Howard Ginsburg, said the university could have done more to prevent his son's death. Ginsburg's death and similar incidents could have been prevented if the university had made mental health a larger priority and raised more awareness of the three student suicides that occurred in 2009, Howard Ginsburg said in the lawsuit he filed on Nov. 21. Since Ginsburg's death, Cornell has installed fences and 24-hour guards at the site of the bridge. The university expects that the case will be dismissed, a Cornell spokesperson said in an interview with the Ithaca Journal.

Feeling a little bloated after Thanksgiving feasts? If you’re thinking about running off the holiday weight over the next few weeks this isn’t a bad time to start training for next year’s NYC Marathon. You can look to Dartmouth students Annie Oppenheim, Audrey Sherman, and Katie Rohn for tips on the race – all three ran the 26 mile race through Team for Kids earlier this month. The organization has brought health and fitness programs to 100,000 children in over 400 schools across the US and Africa, according to their site. To date they have raised over $16 million for their cause. According to the marathon trio, training was enjoyable because they had the opportunity to go on runs throughout the area (which, needless to say, included beautiful scenery) and to spend time together wile working out. After four hours and six minutes of running and months of training, the three of them crossed the finish line feeling uplifted and accomplished; an ideal end to such a rewarding experience.
Winter has finally set foot onto campus. The air is colder. The wind more biting. And Dartmouth is quieter. It’s Thanksgiving break and most students have returned home to celebrate with their families. Not every dorm room on campus is empty, however. For many students who live far from Dartmouth, spending Thanksgiving at home is not feasible. Around 10 percent of Dartmouth students are international and the majority of these students have never celebrated an American Thanksgiving. (I’m from Canada, and this holiday is foreign even to me. At home, Thanksgiving happens in October.) Travelling home for a mere five or six days is in many cases expensive and inconvenient. Both the Dartmouth and Hanover communities take this opportunity open their arms to these stranded students. The Office of Pluralism and Leadership has implemented a program called “Friendship Families” for at least the past fifteen years. They pair an international student with an Upper Valley family. The Upper Valley family “adopts” this student for the next four years as an “international son or daughter.” “The program filled a natural need for families in the beautiful but rural Upper Valley of Northern New England,” Stephen Silver, the director of international student programs, said. “It has the ability to establish a relationship that enables them to bring a little bit of the greater planet into their homes.” As Upper Valley families learn about international cultures, international students are given the opportunity to experience American life and form a family connection a bit closer to campus. “It’s a symbiotic relationship,” Silver added. Thanksgiving is a prime example of an almost exclusively American holiday. Many Upper Valley families hold Thanksgiving dinners for their international sons and daughters to introduce them to the long up-held traditions of turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce. Caroline and Milt Frye of Norwich V.T. in particular are famous for their international Thanksgiving dinners. The meal also serves as an opportunity for American hosts to explain the history and gratitude that created the holiday. Beyond friendship families, professors have opened their doors to students who stay on campus during the break. Both professor Linda Fowler and DHMC doctor Doug James are welcomed three to four international students into their homes for dinner today. Such generosity allows students who are so far from their families find a home away from home for this holiday.
