Police in riot gear responded to intoxicated crowds in the street and on nearby properties.
Planners, pens and gag gifts will give way to handbags and accessories when College Supplies closes its doors early next year to make room for an expanded Lemon Tree Gifts.

Two new programs — Stamps Scholars and First Year Research in Engineering — aim to boost the number of student research opportunities. Around 600 students conduct research in connection with the undergraduate advising and research office each year, director Margaret Funnell said, adding that she had no way of knowing how many students do research through other avenues like theses and independent studies.
This fall, the Gender Research Institute at Dartmouth’s first post-graduate fellows will explore gender issues through research and discussions with students in residential halls.
Each term, usually around the time professors get nicknames straight and summarize the syllabus, we are reminded of Dartmouth’s Academic Honor Principle. For our purposes, it is the dogmatic, underlying recognition of every student: do not cheat. “Cheating” here encompasses perhaps a larger realm than in high school, but the notion is the same. However, accepted within that code is the understanding that it is reciprocal — a departure from our more elementary understanding of academic honor, which consists solely in our duty to educational institutions. This reciprocity does much to lay the foundation for a mutually respectful professor-student relationship, a bond in some ways unique to Dartmouth. If we build further on these principles, however, the honor principle could facilitate an atmosphere in which honor is not only obeyed but respected. The understanding should be made explicit: professors must treat students like adults.

Called “The Swan of Avon,” “The Bard of Avon” or simply “The Bard,” William Shakespeare and his plays and poems remain a staple in English literary education.

Gar Waterman ’78 is a Connecticut-based sculptor known for his large public sculptures. He typically works in stone, bronze, wood and glass, and his sculptures are often inspired by the natural world, especially sea life. Waterman installed “Feral Seed,” a sculpture, in the atrium of the Life Sciences Center in August.
Vibrant, encompassing, kaleidoscopic and free-flowing: these words evoke images from “The Epic of American Civilization,” commonly known as the Orozco Mural. Its expressive richness was typical of the early 20th century’s Mexican muralism movement, spearheaded by Diego Rivera and Orozco himself. Director Jorge Gutierrez’s first animated feature film, “The Book of Life” (2014), brings muralism into the 21st century, creating a bustling, sumptuous 3-D adventure that explodes off the screen.
Despite a valiant second-half effort, the men’s soccer team took its first Ivy League loss, 2-1, against the University of Pennsylvania Saturday. This match marked the 63rd time the Big Green (7-4-1, 2-1 Ivy) was pitted against the Quakers (6-6-0, 2-1 Ivy), the defending Ivy-League Champions. It was an unfortunate end to Dartmouth’s four-game home stand at Burnham Field,
Last season when Dartmouth met the College of the Holy Cross on the gridiron in Hanover, the Crusaders drove 67 yards in the waning minutes of the game to kick a game-winning field goal. This year, with another opportunity for a demoralizing game-ending drive, a mature Dartmouth (4-1, 2-0 Ivy) defense halted Holy Cross (2-6) in its tracks.
The women’s soccer team beat the University of Pennsylvania 2-0 in front of a raucous crowd on Homecoming Saturday at Burnham Field to break its five-game winless streak and notch this season’s first Ivy League win.

The women’s and men’s cross country teams scored 19th and 24th place finishes, respectively, at the Wisconsin Adidas Invitational Friday in Madison. Hosted by the University of Wisconsin, this invitational featured some of the nation’s best cross country teams.
I sat down with Alex Adelabu ’15, striker for the men’s soccer team, Wednesday after the team’s 3-1 loss to then-No. 23 Boston University. Adelabu, who leads the team in goals and points this season (five and 13, respectively) earned Ivy Player of the Week honors after two goals in three games for the Big Green. On Saturday, the team lost its first Ivy game of the season, 2-1 to the University of Pennsylvania.
