As a self-proclaimed “survivor” of Panhellenic recruitment this fall, I feel as if I should have some semblance of an opinion regarding my experience. Following fall and winter recruitment each year, this paper’s opinion section often fills with “obligatory” post-rush columns. While these pieces more often than not rail against the Greek system’s aura of exclusivity and slam the superficiality of the recruitment process, I would like to offer an alternative view. Despite its well-publicized faults, sorority recruitment can breed camaraderie, not animosity.
While I do think Greek leaders should work to make the Greek community more inclusive toward those who identify as gender nonconforming, I think all houses going coed would be a rash response. Despite their many merits, coed houses do not currently provide the same range of social and philanthropic opportunities as single-sex houses. It is possible that other houses may lose this range should they go coed, weakening the system as a whole. Additionally, there are certain merits surrounding camaraderie and, in the case of sororities, female-dominated spaces (and the accompanying social empowerment) that are found in single-sex organizations — the same merits that prompt individuals to pursue other single-sex opportunities such as Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts or a single-sex education. As someone who always found it easier to make friends with girls and as a result had a disproportionately large amount of female friends growing up, I have enjoyed the newfound sense of brotherhood and male friendship that I have already experienced since joining my fraternity last week.

Sleeping habits take a hit during the third and fourth weeks of term, as the midterm period and deadlines seize the student body — what’s anything but news to students was validated in a study by computer science professor Andrew Campbell, based on data collected in spring 2013.
Last week, the TransCanada Corporation took the latest step in a six-year relicensing process for the Wilder Dam, which spans the Connecticut River between Lebanon and Hartford. Wilder is the largest of five Connecticut River dams – three of which are operated by TransCanada – up for relicensing in 2018, a process that has sparked discussion about the dam’s environmental impact.

Beginning with one of Mozart’s few pieces in B minor and finishing with one of Schumann’s last piano works, world-renowned pianist Richard Goode will perform a program Wednesday evening that spans the 18th and 19th centuries.
Few people have heard of — yet alone seen — water treatment pollution caused by paper mills. Even fewer have seen such damage from the sky and called it art. Yet for world-renowned photographer and current Montgomery Fellow Emmet Gowin, a certain fascination and peculiar sense of beauty comes in the circular blossoms of tropical hues that explode from the seemingly serene water.
It’s no secret that Dartmouth students don’t exactly flock to the bars in town when the weekend rolls around. While there have been somewhat-secret “hot spots” for upperclassmen (RIP 3 Guys Trivia Tuesdays), the largely underage student body remains pretty unaware of what lies just south of Wheelock Street. In order to unveil the mystery, two of the senior-iest Dartbeat writers were assigned to investigate. With “alcohol expert” Helen Pfeiffer ’16 in tow, we set out on Friday night with our work cut out for us. Hey, maybe this will become the new senior year circuit?
