Tiltfactor receives NSF grant

(10/08/14 9:30pm)

A $1,134,208 grant from the National Science Foundation will help develop interactive narrative games to combat stereotype threat — students’ fear of confirming identity-based stereotypes — in science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields. Tiltfactor Laboratory researchers, who work to design and study games that promote social change, will spend three years researching game technology, developing students’ stories about classroom bias into a fictional game and testing the effect of their work.

IvyQ wraps up plans before conference

(10/08/14 9:28pm)

In the month before IvyQ, student organizers have turned their attention to fundraising, housing and registration. While the planning committee, headed by Kelsey Weimer ’16 and Akash Kar ’16, has secured contracts for almost all visiting speakers and finalized plans for social events and venues, organizers have struggled to recruit enough hosts for the roughly 300 conference attendees.

Peters: A Mechanism for Change

(10/08/14 8:28pm)

Since the beginning of term, listening to conversations from members of the Greek system has left me with one impression: affiliated students are genuinely concerned that their organizations will be eliminated. So far, the Interfraternity Council has officially eliminated “pledge term” — all persons who shook out and are granted bids are now immediately considered full-fledged members. House leaders are stepping up their game to maintain the teeming social scene that keeps so many students occupied in the middle of nowhere. In reality, the Greek system is one of the things that has made Dartmouth’s location more enjoyable. Perhaps Greek life has dominated social life at the College thanks to its remoteness, and in turn, has created a culture that is dependent on tails, pong and sweaty dance parties in sticky basements. The houses have become apparatuses for consistent togetherness, and now they might be on the verge of extinction. But despite the need for reform, ridding the College of the Greek system entirely would also rid it of a key mechanism for change.

McDavid: Give a Rouse

(10/08/14 8:27pm)

The words to Dartmouth’s alma mater were changed in 1988 to reflect the advent of coeducation. The original title, “Men of Dartmouth,” became “Alma Mater.” The lyrics, originally a poem by Richard Hovey (a member of the Class of 1885), were edited to include women. Today, more than 30 years later, many students continue to sing the original lyrics. This practice is detrimental to the College and those who do so disrespect the women who call Dartmouth home, especially given its bitter history.
