(10/20/15 11:09pm)

For the past several months, members of the Dartmouth community have had access to a wireless network that allows them to connect to the internet at universities across the world, but many upperclassmen remain unaware of it.

Joanne Hyun ’17 picked up her first violin when she was four years old and has been playing ever since. Originally from Sydney, Australia, Hyun moved to the United States during her sophomore year of high school to attend a boarding school in Troy, New York. Although she found that there were fewer opportunities to take music lessons in high school, she also enjoyed having chance to play more independently.

As the temperature drops and the foliage reaches its peak, the women’s cross country team prepares to defend its outdoor Ivy League Heptagonals title at the end of October.

An ’18 Coded a Pong App – But You’re Still Three

(10/20/15 2:14pm)

With the start of this week, one freeze ended and another began – the first being the “freshman freeze” and the second being the deep chill settling into my old bones as temperatures drop and I am slowly forced to transition from getting iced to hot coffees at KAF. But what this means — other than that I will likely never make it on time to my 10 again — is that pong lines are suddenly going to become much (much) longer.

The History of Doc Benton

(10/20/15 10:10am)

With Halloween approaching, I thought it would be a good idea to explore the history of Dartmouth’s most famous — and to my knowledge, only — urban (rural?) legend: Doc Benton. For those of you who need a quick recap, Doc Benton is the main character in the spooky story that gets told to all exhausted freshman arriving at the Moosilauke Ravine Lodge after their First-Year Trips — shoutout to D50!

The Few, the Bold, the Brave: Get to Know the ’19s Who Touched the Fire

(10/20/15 8:00am)

You asked for it and the Class of 2019 delivered. After weeks of cajoling, sweet-talking and threatening (*cough* YikYak *cough*), we sent 12 brave souls into the depths of the flames (and one unfortunate ’19, Bryan B, into the arms of HPo) thus creating the next generation of Dartmouth legends. Over the past week I spent some time talking to seven of this delinquent bunch, discussing everything from their thought process to their choice of footwear. Here are the highlights of our discussions. (Note: All of the fiery fire-touchers chose to protect their anonymity via self-selected pseudonyms. Except poor Bryan. Bryan didn’t get a pseudonym, just a $1000 fine. If you are feeling merciful, visit his GoFundMe here.)

Safety and Security director Harry Kinne said that he believed the results of the Greek Leadership Council’s first-year policy — which ended yesterday — have been consistent throughout the years it has been enforced. While there have been instances in which freshmen have been turned away from Greek houses, he is unaware of any violations of the policy this term.

Szuhaj: Helping Out Humanity

(10/19/15 11:28pm)

In 2000, a group of representatives from the United Nations met to discuss the progress of worldwide development over the previous decade and sign into agreement the Millennium Development Goals. Their objective was to “galvanize unprecedented efforts to meet the needs of the world’s poorest.” The eight goals they set were eradicating extreme poverty and hunger; achieving universal primary education; promoting gender equality; reducing childhood mortality; improving maternal health; combating HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases; ensuring environmental sustainability and creating a global partnership for development. This plan, though ambitious, has pretty much worked — and it is vital that everyone support the Millennium Development Goals as they enter their next phase.
