A nine-goal offensive explosion lifted the field hockey team above Brown University and Bryant University this weekend, its first two wins of the year. The Big Green (2-5, 1-1 Ivy) dominated Brown 6-1 Saturday, then edged out Bryant 3-2 in overtime on Sunday. Dartmouth’s offensive performance marked a great improvement for the team, and suggests that their early season woes might be over. The weekend ended a two-game goalless streak and a five-game losing streak.
The number of adjective phrases I could use to describe Beach Day and their sophomore album “Native Echoes” is a little ridiculous. They’re sweetened punk-infused ’60s garage surf rock for a start, and their infectious sound is perfect for anyone who likes their beach days to end in huge, salty hair and late night burger runs. On the flipside, the album, while easy listening, can tend toward being a little too easy to forget.
This past week, I went on a hunt around the six freshman dorm clusters — the River, McLaughlin, East Wheelock, Fahey-McLane, Choates and Russell Sage — for the ultimate prize every undergraduate advisor dreams of winning:
Letter to the editor:
“How have you been feeling lately?” reads a question in green italicized font. “Feeling empty, hopeless,” reads one answer choice, indicating depression. “Troubled by traumatic events,” reads another, indicating post-traumatic stress.
For two nights, men roamed in and out of fraternities sporting coats and ties. Now, many of those men have accepted bids, and in doing so became full-fledged fraternity members. This marks a shift from past Interfraternity Council recruitment seasons, when new members completed pledge terms, or probationary periods, before being officially inducted into a house.
Emmet Gowin’s black and white landscapes — photos of wheat fields, strip mines and nuclear testing sites in places ranging from Japan to the Czech Republic — tell stories of man’s impact on land, capturing the precarious balance between beauty and destruction. The fall’s first Montgomery Fellow, Gowin arrives Oct. 5 for a weeklong residency, during which he will speak about his work and meet with photography classes and other small groups of students.
Next weekend, around 30 students in teams of three or four will embark on the Fifty, a 53.6-mile hike from campus to Mount Moosilauke’s summit. Hike organizers said the trip usually takes about 30 hours, and hikers are supported by five different stations. This fall, 75 people applied to hike and more than 130 applied to support.
The average grade at Harvard was about a C+ 65 years ago, according to Stuart Rojstaczer, a former Duke professor. Today, it is roughly an A-. What does this tell us? Well, the biggest lesson from this statistic is that averages can be misleading.
Recently, the Advanced Placement credit policy and the policy regarding how many four-course terms students can take without incurring extra tuition fees underwent significant changes at the College. The Class of 2018 is the first affected by the change of policy. For these students, AP credit awarded in high school can no longer count toward the 35 credits required to graduate. Although this policy has been unpopular among students, we should actually praise the College’s decision to uphold its commitment to high-quality education. The AP policy and four-course term policy changes fundamentally work toward the College’s pedagogic mission.
I sat down with Tyler Sikura ’15, the captain of the men’s hockey team. After a disappointing first half last season, the Big Green surged to move up in the playoff standings. The team upset No. 7 seed Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute before falling in two games to No. 1 seed Union College. Last week, the team was picked to finish sixth in the preseason poll.
In the first meeting of the only two Division I football programs in New Hampshire since 2009, the Big Green fell short, losing to No. 7 University of New Hampshire 52-19 Saturday night in Durham.
In the schools’ first meeting, the men’s soccer team beat Fordham University 2-0 at Burnham Field. After a deadlocked first half, the Big Green (3-2-1, 0-0-0 Ivy) reevaluated its strategy, then capitalized on a few key opportunities to seal a victory.
High temperatures and a persistent Brown University squad held the women’s soccer team to a 1-1 tie in the Big Green’s Ivy League opener at Burnham Field, which extended its home unbeaten streak to 16 games.
