Christian alumni group buys Wheelock House to create student housing

(11/12/15 12:58am)

Wheelock House, which is located at 4 Wheelock Street, has housed several small businesses over the years, including Robert’s Flowers, a rare book dealership and psychologist’s office. The purchase and sales agreement for the building was made in September, and Christian academic group the Eleazar Wheelock Society will purchase the property. The society, which was founded by a group of alumni in 2008 and is not affiliated with the College, will renovate the property into an off-campus apartment similar to a living and learning community for those interested in faith and reason.

Kapuscinski named chair of the Union of Concerned Scientists

(11/12/15 12:56am)

Environmental studies professor Anne Kapuscinski has spent her career breaking glass ceilings. She was the first female Ph.D. candidate her doctoral advisor had ever had and the first female professor in the University of Minnesota’s fisheries, wildlife and conservation biology department, which had only seen two women receive master’s degrees in its entire 40-year existence.

Perez: Potty-Mouthed Politics

(11/11/15 11:30pm)

On Nov. 3, the pro-Latino and pro-immigration PAC Deport Racism published its first video on YouTube. For a bizarre two minutes, the political ad features Latino children hurling profanity at Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. A boy who introduces himself as Ricardo accuses Republican candidates of using “offensive words,” and then goes on to offer some of his own. Flipping the bird at the camera, the boy calls Trump “a racist f--k.” His counterpart Rosa quickly follows up, calling the 2016 contender “a racist d--k.”

Julie Solomon ’17 debuts as director with “Baltimore Waltz”

(11/11/15 11:13pm)

A brother and sister traverse around Europe on a what is supposed to be a fun-filled romp and instead find themselves having to deal with the heartbreaking effects of illness and mortality. “Baltimore Waltz,” which was written by Paula Vogel in 1989, the year after she lost her brother to AIDS, centers on Anna and Carl, a pair of siblings who embark on a hedonistic, yet heart-wrenching, European odyssey. The show, which combines the surreal and the serious, will open at the Hopkins Center this weekend and will mark the directorial debut for Julie Solomon ’17.

Women’s soccer ends season with first Ivy League win

(11/11/15 11:01pm)

In its season finale this past weekend, the women’s soccer team notched its first win in Ivy League play, defeating Cornell University 1-0 at Burnham Field. On a brisk Saturday afternoon, the Big Green (8-4-4, 1-3-3 Ivy) put together a complete performance that the team struggled to find early in this season’s conference play, controlling the pace and possession of the game from the outset and generating chances early and often. A goal scored by Lucielle Kozlov ’16 in the 60th minute was all the Big Green needed to grab a win over Cornell (9-4-4, 2-4-1 Ivy) and move ahead of Yale University to finish seventh in the Ivy League standings.

Beyond the Bubble: Don't Be That Person

(11/11/15 12:04pm)

This a story about my first and last visit to the London Eye. I'm warning you now: it's going to be uncomfortable. I want you to feel as uncomfortable reading this post as I felt while locked in a capsule 400 feet above the ground with an elderly woman strapped to my right arm. After an incredibly exhausting week of midterm exams, course election and a stomach bug that had my face stuck in the toilet bowl for more hours than I care to cover, I decided to treat myself to a weekend trip to London. I had absolutely zero plans, zero friends and zero white blood cells, so as soon as I reached my hotel in South Kensington, I found a map and went to work planning my next few days. I naively googled "Places to see in London," and was immediately inundated with pictures of Big Ben, the Tower Bridge and the British Museum (I was alsogracedwith pictures of a balding middle-aged man posing provocatively in aleather Union Jack bikini).

From the Archives

In honor of women's rugby's inaugural season as a varsity sport — and the Ivy League championship they clinched last weekend — here's the tagline for the club from a 1980s issue of The Dartmouth. "Elegant violence" is such an enticing tagline — I imagine that this helped the then-club sport on their way to their current success.

Yuan: Silence Brings No Progress

(11/11/15 1:46am)

Yale University has been in the news a lot lately. When I typed “Yale” into Google, the first four auto-fill results were “letter protest,” “Halloween,” “Halloween email” and “safe space.” All four make reference to the recent controversy at Yale over an email sent by Silliman College associate master Erika Christakis to Silliman residents. Her message commented on a campus-wide email from Yale’s intercultural affairs committee that urged students to be culturally sensitive with their Halloween costumes.

Chin: Music for the Masses

(11/11/15 1:44am)

Every college student should have an opportunity to pursue music, no matter the level and genre of experience. Though I am not training to be a musician — as I once thought I might — some of my fondest high school memories are about music. I enjoyed playing the piano for ballet class, taking weekly lessons with my teacher for 12 years, jamming to Bob Marley and Jackson Browne tunes with my cousin and learning West African drumming at a music summer school. Music does not have to just be for musicians. It can provide community, stability, inspiration, relaxation and passion, which means musical experiences translate well to other disciplines.
