Around the Ivies

Brown University: Two Brown University students recently launched the Animal Assisted Therapy Program, the Brown Daily Herald reported. The program allows students to sign up online to pet and play with trained therapy dogs in 10-minute blocks. Co-founder Peter Herrera ’16 explained that petting animals often reduces anxiety, depression and blood pressure. Columbia University: The University raised almost $13 million on its fourth annual Giving Day, a 24-hour social media campaign to raise money for Columbia’s schools and programs. This year’s sum exceeded last year’s total of $11 million, the Columbia Spectator reported. Musician Jason Mraz expressed his support for Giving Day on social media, contributing to the event’s publicity.

Society of Fellows' first class conducts research across disciplines

(10/28/15 11:37pm)

Sometime this week, five people will sit clustered together in the Church of Christ building at 40 College Street at a weekly meeting they jokingly refer to as “Bible study,” because of its location. Religion, however, is not the topic of conversation — instead they will discuss everything from the difficulties of publishing in journals to the Democratic primary debate.

Bethancourt and Damianos: Supporting Survivors

(10/28/15 11:30pm)

When forensic psychologist David Lisak came to campus in the summer of 2014, he implored administrators and student activist groups to listen to survivors when devising policy around sexual violence. The Student and Presidential Committee on Sexual Assault prides itself on serving as a mouthpiece for survivors, seeking to express their frustrations, desires and hopes to administrators with the goal of fostering a safer and more inclusive campus. We are particularly excited this year about our recently released recommendation advocating for the College to “provide financial support covering the full cost of long-term counseling and psychiatric care for student survivors of sexual violence.”

Paffenbarger: Prioritizing Mental Health

(10/28/15 11:30pm)

While studying abroad in Japan this past summer, I got a B in every single class — and it was not a tragedy. This may come as a bit of a surprise considering that much of Dartmouth is full of overachievers. Most students here somehow manage to be less competitive with each other than our often equally overachieving counterparts at other Ivy League institutions. Unfortunately, however, this does not stop most of us from competing with ourselves, which can have myriad unintended and potentially dangerous consequences on students’ mental health.

The women’s tennis team hosted the Intercollegiate Tennis Association Northeast Regional Championship, wrapping up six days of play at the Boss Tennis Center this past Tuesday. Dartmouth posted solid results throughout the championship, highlighted by Taylor Ng ’17 and Kristina Mathis ’18 taking home the doubles title, the team’s first-ever title at the ITA regional competition.

Men’s soccer ends month-long win streak with loss to UNH

(10/28/15 11:10pm)

The men’s soccer team (8-4-1, 4-0 Ivy) lost its first game in over a month, falling 2-0 to the University of New Hampshire (9-3-3, 2-2-1 America East) in a Tuesday night road game. Dartmouth’s win streak was snapped at six games, although each of the team’s four losses this season have come against non-conference opponents as the Big Green remains undefeated in Ivy League play.

Beyond the Bubble: If You're Bored, You're Boring

(10/28/15 3:02pm)

I am beginning to think that my travels abroad are less about "studying" and "finding myself" than they are about “Game of Thrones.” Everywhere GoT goes, I follow. During my first trip to Europe, I spent most of my time in Northern Ireland. I watched hundreds of extras line up outside of Titanic Studios in Belfast, and I ate lunch on the rocky coastline where Melisandre gave birth to her demon shadow baby.

Campus Blotter

Oct. 23, 6:27 p.m., Observatory Road: Safety and Security officers, Dartmouth Emergency Medical Services and Hanover Fire Department responded to two students who collided when riding their bicycles. One student escaped with only minor pain in the leg, shoulder and head. The other student sustained a bleeding cut in the head and was transported to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center for further evaluation. Oct. 23, 10:30 p.m., Stinson’s Village Store: Hanover Police turned a student over to Safety and Security officers for attempting to purchase alcohol from Stinson’s Village Store with a false ID.

Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center leaves Pioneer ACO

(10/28/15 1:48am)

Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center has withdrawn from the Pioneer Accountable Care Organization Model, which requires participating medical centers to emphasize quality of care rather than fee for service care, DHMC director of external relations Rick Adams and DHMC director of value-based reimbursement modelsLynn Guillette said.

Chin: Movements Matter

(10/28/15 12:50am)

While watching the movie “Straight Outta Compton” (2015) at Loew Auditorium on Oct. 24, I was reminded of ongoing debates over the effectiveness of political protest. The F. Gary Gray-directed biopic is about the late 1980s rap group N.W.A. and its five members, and though many scenes in “Straight Outta Compton” consist of fist brawls and raunchy parties, the movie also highlights protests, riots and how the media and the police respond to these events. “Straight Outta Compton” features a protest against police brutality that predates the Black Lives Matter movement — the 1992 unrest that took place in Los Angeles after the acquittal of four white police officers, who had been caught on videotape beating black taxi driver Rodney King.

Fleming is a four-time Grammy award winning artist who was also the recipient of the National Medal of Arts, America’s highest honor for an individual artist, and has hosted various television and radio broadcast events, including the Metropolitan Opera’s Live in HD series.
