Self-care at Dartmouth is hard, especially as someone who transferred here from an institution that let me count classes like “Math 120: Appreciation of Math” toward a degree my freshman year. I used to have time for two naps, a four-mile run and a Zumba class every day on top of my schoolwork, and I assumed that was just what college was like. It was with this mindset that I arrived in Hanover last fall.
Can I just replace this week’s column with former Rep. Todd Akin’s speech following his 2012 loss for some position I don’t remember? So much weirder and more entertaining than I’ll ever be.
In my second year at the Delaware Advanced Institute for Unreality Studies, the Blockor Memorial Art and Artifice Speculum, where I worked as a work-study student attendant, hosted a special exhibition entitled “Space Astonishes!” — an exploration by several musicians and visual artists of the aesthetic category of the sublime.
On Monday, the faculty of arts and sciences voted to open course reviews to students during course election period. We commend professors for taking this step, and we look forward to choosing our classes with more information. The long-overdue measure should better inform student choices and incentivize both more effective teaching from professors and more thoughtful evaluations from students.
Students who rushed this fall attended an hourlong Dartmouth Bystander Intervention session, which focused on how individuals can prevent sexual assault on campus. The program I attended focused narrowly one kind of sexual assault: those that result from predatory men preying on incapacitated women. Per my recollection, the program did not allude to the possibility of a male victim. And the presenters did not provide definitions for words like rape, sexual assault and consent in their conversations about sexual assault.
The hockey teams are set to enter big matchups this weekend, with the men’s squad playing Union College Friday and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Saturday and the women taking on St. Lawrence University Saturday night.
“We’re on to Cincinnati.”

Akiko Okuda ’15 went 2-1 over the weekend, part of Dartmouth’s dominating performance at the Big Green Invite.
Greek leaders proposed policy changes related to high-risk drinking, sexual misconduct, freshman safety, house renovations, faculty advisors and inclusivity in a letter sent to senior College administrators earlier this week.
In day-to-day life at Dartmouth, where meal swipes and DBA replace cash currency, it can be easy to ignore wealth, Josué Ruíz ’17 said. But off campus, some students can drive their own cars, spend $220 on J. Crew sweater and enjoy a lenient budget while studying abroad.
Dartmouth is an intellectual paradise. It is difficult to get through a day here without rubbing elbows with a leading scholar. We are surrounded by the best labs, the brightest minds and the most cutting-edge work.
Earlier this week, faculty members joined in on the voting hoopla, granting students access to course evaluations. This was not the meeting’s only outcome. Soon thereafter, the faculty voted on abolishing the College’s Greek system. 116 faculty members voted to abolish the Greek system, and 13 members voted to preserve it. Three abstained. This outcome was not unexpected, and previous votes have yielded similar results. In 2001, the faculty voted 92-0 in support of abolishing the Greek system.
From the football field to Panarchy, and from Hanover to Lebanon, more than $100 million worth of construction projects are underway this fall.
