(11/04/15 11:01pm)

From Oct. 22 to Oct. 26, eight members of the men’s tennis team competed in the Intercollegiate Northeast Regional Championship hosted by Yale University. Dovydas Sakinis ’16 became the second Big Green singles player — and the first since 1992 — to capture the championship with a 6-3, 6-2 win over Columbia University freshman Victor Pham. Roko Glasnovic ’19 and Diego Pedraza ’17 came just short of winning the doubles title for Darmouth, losing to Columbia juniors Richard Pham and Shawn Hadavi in the final round in three sets, 6-2, 3-6 (10-8).

Men’s soccer blanks Northeastern University 2-0 at home

(11/04/15 11:01pm)

The No. 22 men’s soccer team continued its winning ways, defeating non-conference foe Northeastern University 2-0 at Burnham Field on Tuesday evening. The victory — the Big Green’s eighth in its last nine contests, including five straight victories at home — improves Dartmouth’s overall record to 10-4-1, while it maintains an undefeated 5-0 Ivy League record. Despite a first half in which Northeastern (3-12-2, 2-6-0 CAA) outshot Dartmouth 10 to two, the Big Green regrouped and came out firing in the second half with Amadu Kunateh ’19 and Eduvie Ikoba ’19 both netting goals to grab the two-goal victory.

(11/04/15 1:10am)

Every morning of his “Advanced Topics in Econometrics” class this fall, Myles Wagner ’17 could expect to receive an apple from his professor, Douglas Staiger, plucked fresh from the apple tree in Staiger’s yard. Not only does Staiger capture his students’ attention — and stomachs — with fruit, but he has also captured the interest of the National Academy of Medicine. Staiger, Dartmouth’s John French Professor of Economics, was one of the 80 members newly inducted to the National Academy of Medicine with his work.

Jeon: Home, Hallowed and Lost

(11/04/15 12:00am)

We all have a memory of a place or time, pure and precious, to which we long to return. Some recall the palpitations caused by the sight of a first crush on the playground. Others may think of the tranquil surface of a pond dappled with sunlight, seen on a trip through the countryside. For me, it is the proud face of my grandmother, crinkled by her smile, at my elementary school matriculation ceremony. With final exams, job applications and “the real world” on the horizon, it is tempting to reminisce on our idealized pasts, but we are better off acknowledging that, in reality, they were as flawed as our current lives.

Ghavri: The Pitfalls of the Practical

(11/04/15 12:00am)

Dartmouth is a liberal arts college, yet some students approach it as if it were a vocational school. Only by freeing yourself from the fallacy of the “practical major” can you truly take advantage of Dartmouth’s amazing liberal arts curriculum and undergraduate teaching. Your major is not intended to make you an expert in your field or prepare you for a specific career. Rather, a Dartmouth education is intended to teach you how to think critically, write with clarity, lead others and succeed in any career.

The men’s and women’s cross country teams failed to produce the results they were hoping for at the Ivy League Heptagonal Championships.

(11/03/15 12:17pm)

From Doctor Seuss to Shonda Rhimes, Dartmouth has produced a variety of extremely successful individuals in various fields. While these individuals enjoy campus-wide notoriety — and often have their last names plastered across buildings — we as a student body often forget about our most important alumni: the fictional men and women who spread the Dartmouth name throughout the world of literature and cinema. Today we honor these very important people with a ranking of the nine most iconic fictional Dartmouth alumni. 9. Bella and Edward (The Twilight Saga)
