Students reflect on alcohol policy

(10/01/12 2:00am)

Since random Safety and Security walkthroughs began on Sept. 21 with the implementation of the College's new alcohol and harm reduction policies, officers have walked through an average of four to five Greek organizations per night, according to Director of Safety and Security and College Proctor Harry Kinne. Prior to this policy, Safety and Security could only conduct announced walkthroughs, arranging times with fraternities and sororities in advance.

Wheeler: Reforming an Imperfect Process

(10/01/12 2:00am)

So girls' rush is finally over. Some of us are enthusiastically adapting to sorority life. Some of us got into the houses we always aspired to be in, while some of us found ourselves somewhere unexpected. And then there are some of us who have dropped out of rush with the hope of someday doing it again or, conversely, with the resolve to remain unaffiliated. Whether or not we ended up where we wanted to this rush season, I think we can all agree on one thing: Rush is a pretty unpleasant process.

What to Watch For

(10/01/12 2:00am)

Vince Marriott: My What to Watch For picks have centered a lot on college football recently, but I can't think of anything I'd want watch this week more than No. 4 Louisiana State University taking on No. 10 University of Florida on Saturday. LSU keeps slipping in the polls due to some recent close finishes, but this was one of the teams favored to win the national title at the start of the season, and I still think that they have a great shot of going all the way. Florida is no joke, either. That state always seems to produce top talent, and the Gators tend to get the best of it. Even though No. 3 Florida State University seems to be the better team this year, there are too many players and coaches on Florida's sidelines that know how to win to count them out of the national title race just yet.

Battle of the Sexes

(10/01/12 2:00am)

Hello readers. You may be feeling mopey and blue with a glum case of the Mondays, but cheer up! You are about to find out what happens when a Regular Ron and a women's varsity competitor clash in the squash box. This week, I challenged Corey Schafer '13 to a battle of the sexes. Corey was Dartmouth's No. 1 player last season and earned first team All-Ivy honors for her performance on the court. Facing her would be no easy task.

Abbey D'Agostino demolishes field at Paul Short Run

(10/01/12 2:00am)

After three weeks without competition, the Dartmouth men's and women's cross country teams were eager and prepared to return to action at the Paul Short Run hosted by Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pa., on Friday. On the men's side, top harrier Will Geoghegan '14 finished fifth individually to lead the Big Green to a fourth-place team finish. Abbey D'Agostino '14 coasted to a win in the women's race by 24 seconds, helping the Dartmouth women to a fifth-place team finish.

Princeton uses two late goals to defeat women's soccer team

(10/01/12 2:00am)

Trying to improve on its four-game win streak, the Dartmouth women's soccer team fell just short on Saturday, losing to Princeton University, 2-1, in Princeton, N.J. The teams played 74:31 without a goal before both offenses began to capitalize on scoring opportunities. Despite a late goal by Chrissy Lozier '14, the Big Green (6-3, 1-1 Ivy) could not overcome two goals by the Tigers (6-3-1, 2-0 Ivy) and suffered its first Ivy League loss of the season.

Football falls at home to Penn, 28-21

(10/01/12 2:00am)

After Dartmouth won the coin toss and deferred to the second half, Penn took advantage of its first opportunity with the ball to go on a methodical 13-play, 84-yard drive to score the game's opening touchdown. Dartmouth's offense failed to respond for most of the quarter, with quarterback Alex Park '14 seeing relentless pressure that would be a theme of the game.

(09/28/12 10:30am)

The light is lit on several occasions throughout the year for major events to welcome alumni, trustees and other guests to campus, according to the College library website. In 1975, the College's Director of Business Affairs hand-wrote a memo that listed when the tower light would shine. The events include Convocation, Homecoming, Winter Carnival weekend, Green Key weekend, First-Year Family weekend, Commencement, Reunions and Board of Trustees meetings.
