Football overcomes slow start to rout Cornell

(11/08/15 11:01pm)

Playing in a nationally televised game for the second straight week, the football team managed to return to its winning ways a week removed from a heartbreaking loss to Harvard University. Despite committing an obscene amount of penalties for the second straight home game that contributed to a sluggish flow for most of the night, the No. 24 Big Green (7-1, 4-1 Ivy) ultimately prevailed over Cornell University (0-8, 0-5 Ivy) by a commanding score of 21-3.

5 Worst People in Your Final Project Group

(11/06/15 3:29pm)

Group projects are some of the greatest experiences we have during our academic careers. By greatest, I mean most excruciating, unbearable, ridiculous and trite form of forced cooperation to which our fearless leaders (endowed with their fancy PhDs) subject our fragile minds. College is all about independence, right? Close, but leave off the “in-” next time. In high school, group projects were different. We were the ones who volunteered to do the hard work. Why? Because, if you want it done right, you do it yourself. Then you tell your partners how to explain your findings to the ‘teach. Group projects at this lofty institution, however, are an entirely different animal. Everyone is intelligent, a “doer.” Be afraid (especially you ’19s). There are creatures lurking in every class roster that will make you lose countless hours of precious sleep. I have taken liberty to classify these beasts, so you know what to look out for the next time (if you’re lucky) your professor gives you the exquisite privilege of choosing your own group.

In the early hours of Thursday morning, a large piece of plywood with the Dartmouth Indian head painted on it and a sign that read “WE stand with NAD. We say ENOUGH” were placed on the steps of Dartmouth Hall. The piece of plywood — a pong table — also included the words “Boom Boom Lodge,” a slang phrase used to refer to Theta Delta Chi fraternity and its physical building.

Verbum Ultimum: Too Quick to Congratulate

(11/06/15 2:13am)

This past August, the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights opened a second investigation into the College for alleged sex discrimination, which is prohibited by Title IX of the 1972 Education Amendments. Administrators chose not to disclose this investigation to the public, leaving us to find out through third-party press reports. This silence stands out from the eager and occasionally self-congratulatory tone typically heard in administrators’ comments on the College’s plans to prevent sexual assault.

Baring it All

(11/06/15 12:00am)

In one part of campus, students sit in the worn armchairs of quaint Sanborn Library, reading about Voltaire’s ideologies, composing essays that debate the merits of capitalism or solving mathematical equations that would mystify even the most accomplished of engineers. Dignified in dress and sophisticated in speech, they illustrate a quintessential scene of Ivy League academia.
