As the Baker bells chimed Om Jai Jagdish Hare, a Hindu devotional song, more than 500 students and community members gathered on the Green Saturday evening with lit candles and sparklers to celebrate Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights.
The voices against graduate programs make a simple claim: more graduate students will lower the quality of undergraduate education. This seems self-evident — if there are more graduate students, professors will care less about undergraduates and the College’s resources will chase graduate students. However, this zero-sum model does not always hold. A handful of our peer institutions have shown that, if done right, graduate programs can dramatically improve the quality of undergraduate education.
Although most students may be unaware of it, Baker-Berry Library offers scholar study spaces to seniors writing honors theses. These are private spaces which guarantee that students working on senior theses always have quiet places in the library to work. I have learned about these as I plan to write a thesis and I believe that they can be highly beneficial to students. However, the library’s current setup and the allocation of scholar studies mean that students cannot use these spaces to their maximum effect.
The Barrows Rotunda, the circular space that greets passersby as they enter and exit the Hopkins Center, will showcase the work of studio art intern Julian MacMillan ’14 until Nov. 25. A product of months of work, “The Not Knowing” is MacMillan’s first exhibit, an “exciting and nerve-wracking” experience, he said.
The stage was dimly lit, bare except for Hermann Hudde, in all black, and his guitar. The intimate, minimalist setting shone a spotlight on Hudde’s talent, inviting the audience to fully immerse themselves in his music.
If you took Bill Murray’s floundering, philosophical narcissist from “Lost in Translation” (2003), threw in alcoholism and a Russian prostitute, then let him desiccate into an even more pruney scumbag, you’d produce his “St. Vincent” (2014) character, Vincent. He’s the kind of guy who touches all the apples at the supermarket, pockets his favorite and walks away.
Alix Madigan ’84, producer of award-winning “Winter’s Bone” (2010) and cult favorite “Smiley Face” (2007), was on campus Friday for a screening of “Laggies” (2014), her most recent film, at the Black Family Visual Arts Center.
After emerging victorious from its own homecoming game last weekend, the Dartmouth football team took home another homecoming win on Saturday, spoiling the weekend for Columbia University. The Big Green (5-1, 3-0 Ivy) surrendered only one touchdown to the Lions (0-6, 0-3 Ivy) and finished with a 27-7 win that was rarely in doubt.
Dartmouth’s road trip to New York, which will continue Monday against Marist College, began in victory Saturday with a 1-0 triumph over Columbia University. Tasha Wilkins ’15 drove a free kick that muscled its way into the net to give Dartmouth the lead in the 19th minute, and the Big Green never let the lead slip away.
Before the Big Green’s 27-7 win over Columbia University this weekend, I sat down with two-time Ivy League defensive player of the week Frankie Hernandez ’16, who has starred on the season’s impressive football team, which moved to 5-1 with its 27-7 win over the Lions.
The women’s ice hockey team notched an impressive win in its first game of the season Sunday, beating the University of New Hampshire Wildcats 6-2 at Thompson Arena.
After dropping back-to-back games last week, the men’s soccer team regained momentum with a win over Columbia University, 1-0 in overtime at Rocco B. Commisso Soccer Stadium on Saturday. Not only did this victory avenge the Big Green’s (8-4-1, 3-1 Ivy) 2013 loss to the Lions (5-6-1, 1-2-1 Ivy), it also places Dartmouth atop the Ivy League standings.
