The fight to elevate the arts is nothing new. For centuries, painting, drawing and printmaking were not even included in the academic definition of the liberal arts. To this day, many intellectuals like to claim that if numbers and textual support are absent in a subject, then it cannot be considered knowledge.

When I first heard we have six weeks off, Dartmouth’s weirdly long winter break sounded amazing to me. After all the stress of the term, who wouldn’t want six weeks to catch up with friends from home? But then as I looked at the actual dates, I realized the problem — no one else is going to be home as early as we are.
There are few things in this mortal life that I have ever been undoubtedly certain about, but if there’s one thing I know to be true without a shadow of a doubt it’s that 2014 is a wild time to be alive. When I asked the woman who lives in the alley behind CVS for astrological advice, as I often do, she told me it was because Mars ended retrograde and the moons of Jupiter exist. Not only are there women in several of my university classes, but many of them are also unmarried and interested in pursuing careers of their own after graduation. That I can handle. But now I hear talk that men are starting to cook their own dinners and no longer fight to the death before a roaring crowd to prove their masculinity. While the definitions of gender roles may be in a state of flux, we’re lucky that several companies have made it their mission to remind us that some things like chapstick and snack food are anything but a spectrum.

“Fresh off the Boat,” an upcoming ABC comedy series, is a refreshingly genuine, multi-dimensional look at Asian Americans in everyday life. Although this show might be an anomaly amid a sea of stereotypes, it is nonetheless a huge step forward. Asian Americans have long been neglected by mainstream media, and when there is attention, it is normally a stereotype. Hollywood’s “bamboo ceiling” has resulted in characters like the blatantly emasculated Mr. Chow from “The Hangover” (2009) and the oft-ignored, silent Lilly from “Pitch Perfect” (2012). A 2008 report from the Screen Actors Guild revealed that less than 4 percent of Asian Americans were cast in television and theatrical roles in 2007 and 2008.
We asked our opinion staff if class attendance should be a part of one’s grade. Here's what some columnists had to say:
Dartmouth, after putting up just one goal in a 4-1 loss to Yale University in the first of two this weekend, came onto the ice with something to prove Saturday. The team, trying to shake last season’s reputation that it was either hot or not, took the 22-hour break to compose itself, find the chemistry it lacked the night before, and smack the visiting Brown University Bears with a 6-0 shutout, the first career shutout for James Kruger ’16.
Deep bass tones vibrated through Faulkner Recital Hall, paired with the strum of high guitar notes. This partnership was distinct, as both sounds came from the same instrument: music department senior lecturer David Newsam’s eight-string electric guitar.
