Presidential campaigns see the best (and worst) of social media

(11/01/12 7:00pm)

However, a certain disparity seems to exist between the two major presidential candidates, reflecting the different voter demographics of the two parties. Obama’s Facebook page has accumulated over 31 million likes, paling Romney’s 11.5 million. On Twitter, this gap widens. Obama's campaign page has over 21 million followers, in comparison to Romney’s 1.634 million. These statistics seem to be a continuation of the legacy that Obama created as a social media giant in the 2008 election.

Off-Campus Kitchen: Butternut Squash and Quinoa

(11/01/12 1:30pm)

Butternut squash constitutes a huge fraction of my culinary repertoire — partially because I first learned to cook in the Sustainable Living Center, which prioritizes local foods, and few foods are local in the winter other than root vegetables and dairy. There are many delicious ways to prepare butternut squash — my usual is sliced into bite-sized chunks, and oven-roasted with potatoes and beets in olive oil and rosemary. Butternut squash can also be pureed into soup, but I don’t have a blender.

Panhell sees funding cuts this year

(11/01/12 3:00am)

Following changes to the Greek Leadership Council's system for allocating funds, the Panhellenic Council received only $3,000 this year, a dramatic decrease from the tens of thousands it was allotted in previous years. The administrative change resulted from a recent budget cut by the Undergraduate Financial Committee, according to GLC public relations chair Ali Essey '13.

Daily Debriefing

(11/01/12 3:00am)

This fall, English professor Ivy Schweitzer has brought together Dartmouth undergraduates and high school students from Ledyard Charter School, an alternative public high school, in an experimental English class, Dartmouth Now reported. This community-based learning course on American poetry meets at the high school on Tuesdays and at Dartmouth on Thursdays. Each week, students from both schools interact through a variety of activities, allowing the high school students to experience college life and Dartmouth students to learn more about the Upper Valley community. Students from both schools have teamed up to research poems for the class' final project, through which they will learn about a particular poem's context and present a recitation of the poetry they choose to analyze and original poetry, Dartmouth Now reported.

The weekend featured both strong goaltending in the season opener against Princeton (2-2-0, 0-2-0 ECAC) and costly mistakes in the game against Quinnipiac (4-3-1, 1-1-0 ECAC).

Lucky Mkosana '12 seeks better fortune with Philadelphia Union

(11/01/12 3:00am)

Few players in Dartmouth men's soccer history have matched the achievements of Mkosana. During his time with the Big Green, the Zimbabwe native earned several accolades, including Ivy League Player of the Year and four All-Ivy First Team selections. He also became Dartmouth's all-time leading scorer with 34 goals, breaking a record established in 1953.

Film series spotlights collaboration with New York Film Festival

(11/01/12 3:00am)

The second-oldest film festival in the United States, the New York Film Festival has championed film as an art form rather than a business since its inception in 1963 at the Lincoln Arts Center, according to film and media studies professor Jeffery Ruoff. Ruoff also contends that its unwavering dedication to the sanctity of the art of film distinguishes it from other, more commercialized, festivals like the Cannes, Berlin and Toronto Film Festivals.

Francfort: Costly College Tuitions

(11/01/12 3:00am)

College is getting much more expensive. This fact has grown clear over the last 10 years here in Hanover, as the total cost to attend Dartmouth has increased by over 61 percent. But this isn't just a local trend. All across the nation, tuition is skyrocketing. This dismaying fact has caused many students and parents alike to feel uneasy about the accessibility of a college degree. Just a couple weeks ago, The Dartmouth Editorial Board expressed their hope that the College would make an effort to decrease the costs of attending Dartmouth ("Verbum Ultimum: A Rising Price Tag," Oct. 19). But as long as the federal government, and our society as a whole, continues calling for greater numbers of young adults to enter college, these costs will not go down but instead continue hurtling upward.

Dwyer: A Healthy Dialogue

(11/01/12 3:00am)

Tomorrow, every first and second-year female student will receive a small compact mirror in her Hinman Box. This marks the second installment of the Orchid Project, originally initiated by Mayuka Kowaguchi in the fall of 2010. Each mirror will come with a note explaining that females could use the mirrors to view their vulvas. There is no mention of obligation to use the mirror, no endorsement of sexual activity. The mirrors are offered in the way one once was to me.
