Howe’s Little Free Libraries Draw Positive Feedback

(09/30/14 7:00am)

Those of you who weren’t on campus in the summer may have noticed an extra dose of cute in Hanover – the Howe Library installed two Little Free Libraries over 14X. These structures invite passersby to “Take a book, leave a book,” offering a small break from a hectic day. The first Little Free Library was unveiled in front of Hanover’s Town Hall on Aug, 11 and the second, between the Hanover Inn and the Hop, was installed earlier this month.

As of yet, the Islamic State has not commented on the strikes, but it is worth noting that the group used U.S. airstrikes to explain its execution of three Western hostages. Given the Islamic State’s track record of capitalizing on military action as a rationale for escalating violence against Westerners, America’s decision to increase airstrikes seems poorly thought-out.

Yuan: Even the Scales

How much does a legacy weigh? Colleges generally say that legacy status is used only as a tiebreaker between two equally strong applicants. But in a 2011 interview with Dartmouth Alumni Magazine, dean of admissions and financial aid Maria Laskaris said that Dartmouth admits legacies nearly two-and-a-half times more frequently than non-legacy admits.
