“Abstinence is key...the best way to not is to...not.” Such are the wise words of Principal Gold from the iconic movie “She’s the Man” (2006). But is abstaining from temptation always the best course of action? On Tuesday, my government class pledged to abstain from using cell phones, email or social media unless necessary for schoolwork for 24 hours. At first, I assumed this challenge would open my eyes to the wondrous benefits of a technology-free life. I envisioned a day free from the constant need to check my phone for text messages or scroll through a newsfeed or mindlessly jump around on Buzzfeed. I thought my productivity would skyrocket and my social interactions would magically multiply. Instead, I experienced almost the exact opposite. While I will admit that there were some positives to my day of social technology abstinence, I don’t think wholly withdrawing is the miraculous solution so many imagine it to be.
Recently, the College announced a series of sanctions against Theta Delta Chi fraternity. I am a brother at this fraternity, and I have heard conjecture as to the nature of the allegations against the fraternity. I will address the exact allegations and hopefully, dispel any rumors as to their nature. My goal is to release the facts as they stand in order to allow the greater community to understand exactly what was alleged in light of College spokesperson Justin Anderson’s allusions to high-risk drinking.
Seven men will battle in a sales contest with their careers at stake in Bentley Theater this weekend. Directed by Max Gottschall ’15, “Glengarry Glen Ross,” written by David Mamet, is a Pulitzer Prize-winning comedy of real estate salesmen, each armed with motivations and burdened by high stakes, struggling to sell people something they don’t want.
The College will renovate the Hopkins Center in the near future, potentially adding three performance or spaces and converting Alumni Hall to a performance space. The redesigned facility aims to allow easier navigation and visibility of the arts facilities.
Theta Delta Chi fraternity will be suspended through June 2014, followed by a probationary period until June 2016. The sanctions follow a series of hearings concerning five allegations of misconduct levied against the fraternity.
The College received 1,678 early decision applications for the Class of 2018 as of the Nov. 8 deadline, a 6.7 percent increase from last year, dean of undergraduate admissions and financial aid Maria Laskaris said.
A group of students protested former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s Tuesday talk with a ‘die-in.’ The group handed out fliers in the hallway following the talk, which cited Israeli responses to terrorist attacks and Desmond Tutu’s 2002 article lamenting the humanitarian situation in Gaza and the West Bank. The humanitarian and security situation have improved on the ground in recent years, Olmert said in his talk. The protesters refused to discuss the details of their objections with a reporter other than to clarify that their purpose was not anti-Semitic and that they were not representing Real Talk. The protesters left the room chanting “one, two, three, four, occupation no more, five, six, seven, eight, Israel apartheid state.” After the protestors left, Olmert wondered aloud what such protesters would do once peace is reached and pointed out a paradox in the attacks launched against him — he has been criticized for his willingness to compromise in his efforts to broker peace with Palestinians as well as for excessive use of violence.
The Big Green Bus, which embarks on a cross-country trip each summer, may no longer center around a biodiesel powered bus next summer. In light of new trends in sustainability and logistical challenges surrounding repairing and driving the current bus, team members are reevaluating the program and considering other modes of transportation.
On Wednesday, the Apple Hill string quartet will attempt to use its music to raise awareness about global conflicts, including victims of the recent violence in Syria. Along with artist-in-residence Sally Pinkas and Syrian-born clarinetist Kinan Azmeh, the quartet will perform Haydn’s “Rider” quartet and a quintet by Jewish composer Mieczyslaw Weinberg, as well as pieces by Emmy-nominated composer Kareem Roustom.
Following strong performances at their respective Ivy League championship tournaments, the men’s and women’s rugby teams both seem poised for continued postseason success. While the men look to build on a dominating performance at the Ivy 7s championship in Princeton, N.J., last weekend, the women will focus on drawing positives from an undefeated regular season and a strong but ultimately disappointing Ivy 15s championship showing that saw them drop the tournament final to Harvard University.
The men’s basketball team carried its strong play from the end of last season, when it won three of its last four games, into its new one, which kicked off on Sunday against Lyndon State College. The Big Green (1-0) topped 100 points for the eighth time in program history, dominating Lyndon State (0-1) 106-61.
I began Googling college admission websites during my junior year of high school. Like many over achieving students, I visited every Ivy League page. Each school had its own selling point, whether it was a residential college system or New York City, but from my bedroom, the D-Plan made this New Hampshire college seem more exciting than any of its peers. I imagined that after having a perfect freshman year, I would spend my sophomore year in Europe and my junior year in California. Then, I’d be back for senior year and graduate on time! The D-Plan made the opportunities at Dartmouth seem limitless.
