Former Senate staffers satirize their bosses through song

(10/02/12 2:00am)

The troupe was founded in 1981 by a group of Senate staffers who were trying to figure out who would provide the entertainment at that year's Christmas party, according to Elaina Newport, one of the co-founders of the group.

Alston: Fair Compensation

(10/02/12 2:00am)

It has become increasingly common for college students and recent graduates to seek internships in order to build their resumes for success in a tough job market. More than half of American college students that graduated in 2011 took internships during their four years at college, and subsequent classes have followed suit. Emmanuel Kim '15, who worked at an investment firm over the summer, is an example of this trend. Coming in with no experience, he received training project by project, learning important skills such as marketing, networking and financial product differentiation while doing research for his employer. He didn't get paid, but he didn't mind because he picked up valuable skills and experience. His employer didn't mind, either, because Emmanuel did some work for them. It was a win-win situation.

The Norris Cotton Cancer Center at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center will start a new campaign this month using lemons to teach women about breast health, according to a DHMC press release.

Because early breast cancer detection is correlated with a high survival rate, the campaign aims to demonstrate the importance of breast health monitoring to women of all education and income levels, according to the DHMC press release.

Helfand touts alternative university model

(10/02/12 2:00am)

Increased pressure on professors to conduct research and effectively educate their students creates a sense of pessimism about the university system, Helfand said. This culture punishes professors who focus on their teaching and encourages students to perceive their tuition as paying for a degree rather than an education, according to Helfand, who previously served as the chair of the astronomy department and co-director of the astrophysics laboratory at Columbia University.

Stuff Dartmouth Kids Like: High School Musical + Glee = Dartmouth

(10/01/12 10:30am)

Music. Dartmouth is collectively obsessed with gussying us up in its finest hand-me-down leotards and ’80s printed shirts while we dance to the rewritten lyrics of One Direction songs. And it’s never announced, never expected. Instead, you are lured to mandatory meetings under false pretenses and slapped in the face with animal-covered onesies, guys wearing neon leggings and Enrique Iglesias.
