Editors' Note

(11/05/15 11:57pm)

During Maddie and Maggie’s freshman year, they quickly formed a little crush on a senior boy. Because of his very distinct (read: beautiful) spectacles, they nicknamed him “Glasses Kid.” He just looked so hip, so studious, so worldly. He probably read Sartre (in French) by day and played classical Spanish music on his guitar by night. He was our real life Jim Sturgess from “21” (2008) — the quintessential Ivy League badass. They hoped that one day he would notice them. He never did.

Fishbein: The Other Big Green

(11/05/15 11:30pm)

I commonly see something green other than lone pines here at Dartmouth. Many students here seem to enjoy using marijuana — which is not unusual, given that 36 percent of college students had used marijuana over a 12 month period, according to a 2014 survey from the University of Michigan. At Dartmouth, some students continue to use marijuana even given the draconian laws of New Hampshire, where possession of the drug in any quantity is a misdemeanor offense punishable by up to one year in prison. It is time for New Hampshire to go along with the national trend and reform these laws, and we as college students can help fight to make this happen.

Football prepares to take on winless Cornell on Friday Night

(11/05/15 11:01pm)

Much like it did in the 2014 season, the loss to the Harvard Crimson last Friday seems to have extinguished Dartmouth’s Ivy League title aspirations. Playing on the biggest stage of the season — a nationally broadcast matchup between two undefeated squads that would leave the victor with the best shot at winning the conference — the Big Green suffered a demoralizing comeback loss after only trailing the Crimson for the final 38 seconds of the game.

Dawit Workie '17 guides Big Green as unconventional flyhalf

(11/05/15 11:01pm)

There is not a single rugby player in this world that has not been yelled at by his ten. Not setting a proper platform for the kick? Trying to run a pick when the call is to get the ball out? Generally doing anything that is not helpful to what the flyhalf wants to do in that moment? Breathing in a space where your ten is upset? It can make you wonder how Dawit Workie ’17 ever ended up at flyhalf.

Shoot for It: With John Beneville ’16 and Alex Lee ’16

(11/05/15 11:01pm)

What’s good Dartmouth? The “Shoot For It” boys are back in action this week talking about the reigning National Basketball Association’s Most Valuable Player Stephen Curry. In addition to winning regular season MVP, Curry led his team to an NBA Championship, averaging almost 24 points per game, while dishing out more than seven assists and grabbing four rebounds per contest over the course of the season.

From the Archives: The Cake Eater

(11/05/15 4:47pm)

This ad from a 1922 issue of The Dartmouth features a "Cake Eater" — the hippest cat around during the roaring '20s. He's dressed to the nines and has all the right moves. Indeed, he "evolved some variations on the cake walk which made them stare." But it turns out this "dandy" isn't the hero of the story. Instead, he serves as an early 20th century reminder to stay in school, with the final line of the page being, "Did he perchance put too much though into the selection of his hats and too little on what went under them?"

Around the Ivies

Brown University: Brown student group First-Gens@Brown plans to release a student-organized guidebook aimed toward helping first-generation college students navigate their time at the university, the Brown Daily Herald reported. The guidebook, which the group intends to release by the end of winter break, will attempt to counteract the unfamiliarity of college by offering information that these students may not already know, including information about meal plans, office hours and scholarship programs. Columbia University: This year’s Students Affairs Committee Quality of Life survey reported an overall increase in student satisfaction, but also showed a decline from 2013 in student satisfaction within three minority groups: students from low-income backgrounds, those who experience physical and mental disabilities and transgender students, the Columbia Spectator reported. University senator and committee vice chair Ramis Wadood said these results were unsurprising due to the unique challenges these groups face, noting that the findings demonstrate the existence of a concrete problem and will allow Columbia to implement programs to address these groups.

Senator Lindsey Graham talks presidential policy goals

(11/05/15 1:56am)

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) joked, “This is the only way I could get into an Ivy League School — by running for president,” at a town hall meeting Wednesday afternoon. Graham is the second presidential candidate to be featured in “America’s Economic Future,” a lecture series co-sponsored by the Tuck School of Business and the Rockefeller Center.

Jon Kull explains plans for independent graduate school at town hall

(11/05/15 1:47am)

Plans to create an administratively independent School of Graduate and Advanced Studies were discussed in detail at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center on Wednesday during the second of three “town hall” style meetings. Information included details about the organization of the new school and concerns about the project’s budget.

Teaching Science Fellows program supports students in STEM fields

(11/05/15 1:43am)

The Teaching Science Fellows program — created to make difficult introductory science courses accessible to a wider range of students — is now in its second year. The two current fellows, Therese Kienemund ’15 and Joshua Prickel ’15, work with the professors and students of large science courses in a variety of capacities, including holding office hours and conducting course surveys.

Simineri: Reasserting Safe Spaces

(11/04/15 11:30pm)

In his Oct. 28 column for The Dartmouth Review, “Finding a Place at Dartmouth: Thoughts on Diversity Panels,” columnist Sandor Farkas ’17 unleashed a wave of criticisms against diversity panels. He berates their participants as “living, shouting proof that Soviet-era Stalinist propaganda” exists on college campuses, and cites them as spaces where “independent and...conservative” views are “unwelcome” and even attacked. As evidenced from such comments, it seems that Farkas has failed to learn anything from the panels about diversity or the issues that minority groups face. Rather, his column is teeming with the entitlement, disrespect and ignorance that come with an unwillingness to think critically about issues of race, sex and gender. His column instead focuses on white, male discomfort and wrongly shifts the blame for minority issues stemming from systems of oppressions to those fighting these systems.

Lu: Ready For Hillary

(11/04/15 11:30pm)

One problem with social justice movements that are supported and nurtured by social media is that 140 characters are generally just enough to point out problems — but not enough to propose solutions. I myself am guilty of this — a lot of the time, my columns will identify problems I see without offering a comprehensive solution beyond “this has to change.” But change how? Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton answers this question, and for that reason and more, she deserves to be the next president of the United States.
