The Board of Trustees discussed academic goals, changes to Geisel Medical School and Thayer Engineering School and “Moving Dartmouth Forward” presidential steering committee progress this weekend. Reflecting on the weekend, College President Phil Hanlon said the meeting focused on academic excellence and productivity.
A slam poetry workshop, discussion of Palestinian queer movements and Goldman Sachs information session, among other events, marked this weekend’s IvyQ conference. More than 300 students from across the Ivy League attended the symposium, which explored different aspects of LGBTQ identities.
Greek leaders recommended policy changes related to high-risk drinking, sexual misconduct, freshman safety, house renovations, faculty advisors and inclusivity, calling on students and alumni invested in the Greek system to show their support.

Blue balloons reading “coffee with a cop” adorned Umpleby’s Bakery and Cafe, as four police officers spent two hours Saturday morning chatting with local residents over coffee.
Four out of five young people did not vote in Tuesday’s election. In fact, the U.S. Election Project estimates that this year’s midterm saw the lowest overall turnout since 1942, as reported by the New York Times. Should this worry you? It should if you care about democracy. A torrent of recent studies show America’s democracy in crisis: In his 2012 book “Affluence and Influence,” Princeton University’s Martin Gilens found that lawmakers only respond to the policy preferences of the rich, while the middle and lower classes are basically ignored. Larry Bartels, Benjamin Page and Jason Seawright later added that real policy influence might in fact rest with “the one percent.” Increasing electoral turnout via a universal poll tax will reinvigorate democracy.
I am registered to take Art History 51, “Realism, Impressionism and Post-Impressionism,” next term. I have studied art history in the past, but I have never taken any college introductory courses in the subject. I also do not expect to major in it. Most colleges would require prerequisites for higher-level art history courses, but Dartmouth does not. It is important that Dartmouth retains this lack of prerequisites, especially in its liberal arts and humanities classes, to encourage intellectual exploration and impart necessary social skills.
The Dartmouth held its annual changeover event on Saturday to announce the new directorate. The following team will begin in January.
How much would you spend on a white painting? $10? $100? What if your best friend spent $200,000 on a monochromatic painting — would you tell him what you thought?
The Space Race pitted the Soviet Union and United States against each other in a battle for space supremacy, spanning 17 years and leading to innovations in satellite technology, computers and space transport. The race also helped to bankrupt the Soviet economy.
One door separated the stage into two rooms and two worlds. Dr. Givings’s operating room, where he treats women for hysteria using an electrical vibrator, took up one side of the stage, while the living room, most often depicting Mrs. Givings and her relationships, existed on the other.
While the opening didn’t follow the script, 42 unanswered points gave the Dartmouth football team a comfortable 42-7 victory at Cornell University on Saturday, keeping the team’s hopes of an Ivy League title alive.
A muddy field and adverse wind conditions in Ithaca, New York, over the weekend could not stop the Big Green from rolling to a 3-0 win over Cornell University.
The women’s soccer team lost its final game of the season Saturday 1-0 at Cornell University. The Big Green (8-5-4, 3-1-3 Ivy) took the second-place spot in the Ivy League Saturday, four points behind Harvard University. Cornell (8-9-0, 2-5-0 Ivy) moved up from last place in the Ivy League to seventh with the win.
The women’s hockey team moved to 4-0 with a 5-1 win over St. Lawrence University on Friday on neutral ice in Rochester, New York — a score that does not count toward the overall ECAC standings. Lindsey Allen ’16 and captain Karlee Odland ’15 were the offensive stars for the Big Green, notching three and two points in the win.
I sat down with women’s soccer goalie Tatiana Saunders ’15 before the team’s season finale against Cornell University, which it lost 1-0. Saunders, reigning Ivy League women’s soccer player of the week, has had a strong season, allowing 11 goals in 15 games and notching seven shutouts.
I have to say, Halloween was so great, but this week has really been meh. Getting back midterms is always stress inducing – the home stretch is so close yet so far. But let me tell you, this dessert has literally shaken up everything. Pun intended. I’ve had it at least once every day since Monday, and each time it tastes better than before. I’m always left full without feeling heavy. And I must mention the relative health benefits this dessert offers as well. “The Earthquake” is revolutionary for my culinary arsenal — a natural disaster turned miracle. Hopefully you’ll feel the same way when you try it.
Announcement: Week eight is coming to an end. Week. Eight.
