Panhellenic Council sororities and Interfraternity Council fraternities now have equal representation in the Greek Leadership Council, following a vote last Thursday. Each of the eight Panhell sororities will get 1.875 votes, while the 15 IFC fraternities and other Greek organizations will continue to have one.
Scientists must consider the social and political backgrounds of those they seek to assist, E.E. Just postdoctoral fellow Salvador Almagro-Moreno said Saturday afternoon, explaining that local resources can be used to address disease-stricken communities. For instance, he said, scarves can filter water in areas of India affected by cholera.
Internships — and the pressure to land as many prestigious ones as possible — are constantly on college students’ minds. However, in our quest to find them, many of us settle for underpaid or unpaid positions. I wonder how many of us ask ourselves if this is a morality we want to implicitly endorse and a phenomenon in which we are content to take part. Last summer, I took an underpaid internship in an effort to grow intellectually and add the precious line to my resume. Though I feel that I achieved both of those things, my experience taught me that “invaluable” internships impose a heavy price. In order to make myself seem attractive to future employers, I contributed to a corrupt practice that upholds classist systems, disadvantages many young people and affirms corporate voraciousness.
The six-week ban on first-year students entering Greek houses serving alcohol is over for the Class of 2018, but serious scrutiny of its effectiveness should continue. Whether or not the ban should stay in place next year for the Class of 2019 is a question that deserves serious consideration. Given that the ban was implemented to deter high-risk drinking and reduce incidences of alcohol-driven sexual assault on campus, I believe that its effectiveness — or, as I will argue, lack thereof — should determine whether the ban is continued.
The Rude Mechanicals began its rendition of “Macbeth” on Halloween night with swords clashing and witches raving. The student group, which runs one Shakespearean play per term, produced a shortened version of the famous Scottish tragedy on Thursday and Friday.
For students without a car on campus, how does one spend the day skiing at Killington or watching a baseball game at Fenway Park? James Furnary ’16 and Ryan Buckvar ’17 aim to solve this problem with BusMe, an event-driven bus transit service that feeds upon a crowdsourced market.
Any film that designates itself a “zom-rom-com,” or zombie romantic comedy, must suffer from an identity crisis. To wed the gratuitously overused zombie and rom-com genres is parody itself, and it’s not surprising that such a film’s audiences might try to divorce the viewing experience from their minds.
It was billed as Dartmouth’s biggest game since the two met as undefeated teams in 1997. The game unfolded differently from the 24-0 contest 17 years prior, but ended in the same result: a Crimson victory.
The women’s cross country team won the Ivy League Heptagonal Championships title for the second consecutive year with 47 team points, defeating runner-up Princeton University by 20 points. The men’s team finished fourth overall in the Saturday race at West Windsor Fields in Princeton, New Jersey.
I sat down with Wyatt Omsberg ’18 of the men’s soccer team before the team’s Saturday game against Harvard University. Omsberg is the reigning Ivy League Rookie of the Week thanks to his game-winning overtime goal in the Big Green’s 1-0 win over Columbia University last week.
The final scene at Burnham Field on Saturday night could not have been more telling. In the waning seconds of the overtime clash between the Ivy League’s top soccer teams, Dartmouth and Harvard University (9-4-2, 2-1-2 Ivy), the final whistle left Big Green players sprawled out on the pitch, completely spent after a grueling 1-1 (2OT) draw, and a particularly draining final sequence.
The women’s soccer team won its last home game of the season Saturday, beating Harvard University 2-0 at Burnham Field. Corey Delaney ’16 scored both goals, one in each half, to keep the Dartmouth women alive in the Ancient Eight.
What a wonderful weekend for Halloween. Midterms are mostly behind us, the beauty of fall perseveres with weather that by Dartmouth standards is “warm” and the San Francisco Giants just won the World Series. Yes, friends, orange rules everything around me, and even in FoCo I cannot escape it.
"Others in the crowd maymaliciously yell out, ‘Worst class ever!’ or ’Touch the fire!’Those are the chants of those misguided souls who maybelieve that tradition lives on in demeaning the experiencesof others."
So you’re going to a Halloween party this weekend, but don't have a costume. You knew Halloween was this weekend and that you would need one. But in the midst of midterms and papers, you have neglected to do anything about a costume. You, my friend, need a backup plan.
