This, faithful readers, will be our last battlefield update of the fall season. For those of you who have stuck it out with us thus far, only to have your hearts broken as the good guys (our story, so we are the good guys) drop so many (sort of) close ones, we appreciate your love and support.
This week, I sat down with Brandon McNally ’15, a forward on the men’s hockey team, before the Big Green traveled to Princeton University and Quinnipiac University, where they lost both games to fall to 0-8-0, 0-6-0 ECAC on the season. Last year, the team started 5-0-1 before losing its first game.
Men’s basketball saw mixed results this week when it faced off with its first two Division I opponents. After falling 77-87 against the Bryant University Bulldogs on Wednesday, the Big Green (2-1) smashed the University of Massachusetts at Lowell River Hawks this Saturday 77-59, wrapping up a three-game showing at home.
Note to readers (May 23, 2014):
The women’s ice hockey team had a busy weekend with a Friday night victory at home against Colgate University and a Saturday afternoon home loss to No. 3 Cornell University. The 1-1 weekend puts the Big Green at 2-7-0 overall and 2-6-0 in the ECAC. Dartmouth took down Colgate (3-11-0, 1-7-0 ECAC) 2-1 in a hard-fought match, but fell 4-2 to Cornell (8-0-2, 6-0-2 ECAC) after allowing three goals in the first period.
The football team triumphed in a thriller over Brown University 24-20 Saturday, earning its first road win since the season opener, after Brown senior Patrick Donnelly’s fourth-down pass fell incomplete with 1:25 left in the game. Dartmouth (5-4, 2-4 Ivy) improved to 56-31-4 in the all-time series.
Finals season is upon us, ladies and gentlemen. For me, finals always bring an interesting feeling to campus. The library grows fuller as the frat basements start to empty. The conversations grow shorter, the under-eye bags grow darker and meals with friends become FoCo takeout eaten hurriedly over a textbook in the 1902 Room. In the fall especially, the weather starts to reflect the general mood of campus, the days growing shorter, darker and colder as the finals grind begins to chip away at our collective sanity. The gray haze that settles over the deserted Green as harried students scuttle from group project meetings to review sessions to office hours casts an unsettling, almost morbid shadow. They may only be tests and papers and presentations, but sometimes it starts to feel like we’re preparing for an apocalypse.
It’s no secret that winter term is not the most popular time for students to be on campus. While you begin to brace yourself for negative temperatures and unbearable wind chill, it is also a great time to explore more of the arts events as a variety of groups will offer exciting performances to bring you out from the winter slump.
Melinda Agron ’14 has always found herself in awe of well-designed structures that not only are beautiful but serve a larger purpose of bringing communities together.
Dartmouth students are accustomed to vigorous study, busyness and general success, but often face seemingly insurmountable challenges. Fortunately, it is easy to find an abundance of sound advice throughout campus. Friends and classmates are always willing to dispense wisdom, whether in giving a comprehensive overview of a summer internship or advice regarding course selection for next term. The College itself also provides a wealth of advising resources, from the Undergraduate Deans Office to first-year faculty advisors. Though these channels are altogether comprehensive, their physical and intuitive disjointedness leaves something to be desired.
Last week, I was fortunate enough to get a seat at former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s lecture on the relationship between Israel and Palestine. Everyone with some sort of interest in international affairs should have been in attendance; the opportunity to listen first-hand to the opinions and policy prescriptions of a former wartime leader, particularly one from such a crucial nation, does not present itself very often. So I would firstly like to thank the Dickey Center for hosting Olmert, and for providing the Dartmouth community with the chance to hear him speak.
While sustainability may not be the first thing on your mind when grabbing coffee on a busy morning, bringing a reusable mug can help save the environment as you get your much-needed caffeine fix. A group of Dartmouth students is promoting the use of reusable mugs on campus by starting the “Mugs of Dartmouth” Instagram account this term.
