In his lecture yesterday evening at the Rockefeller Center, journalist Michael Cohen connected the political activity of Nelson A. Rockefeller ‘30 to today’s polarized presidential election. The Boston Globe contributor discussed his new book, “American Maelstrom: The 1968 Election and the Politics of Division,” which concerns the career and legacy of Rockefeller, who served as the Vice President under former Presdient Gerald Ford.
To finish his doctorate in education leadership at Clemson University this past June, Brian Joyce, the new director of the Office of Greek Life, authored a dissertation that examined how membership in traditionally white fraternities can shift notions of identity in minority students. This research has crystallized into Joyce’s aim to make the Greek system at Dartmouth more inclusive for those who have been marginalized.
Geisel School of Medicine psychiatry professor David Folks, who has also served as the Chief Medical Officer of New Hampshire Hospital — the state-run psychiatric hospital — for the past eight years, will step down from both posts in January.
Growing up in “the shadow” of Manchester’s industrial mills, government professor and political theorist Russell Muirhead first learned about work, alongside the ethics of work. Muirhead went on to pursue an A.B. in government from Harvard University, as well as a second bachelor’s degree in philosophy, politics and economics from Balliol College at Oxford University. In 1987, he was named a Rhodes Scholar. In 1996, after completing a Ph.D. in government from Harvard, Muirhead then taught at multiple institutions including Williams College, Harvard and the University of Texas at Austin before coming to Dartmouth in 2009. Since joining the College’s faculty, Muirhead has produced multiple papers on topics including political parties, meaningful work in politics and finding the center on the political spectrum. This term, Muirhead is teaching government courses on political ideas, American political thought and ethics. The Dartmouth sat down with Muirhead to discuss political theories, “Harry Potter” and the current election cycle.
Katherine Stebbins ’04 discovered her passion for costume design at Dartmouth after designing for two shows, eventually graduating with a major in philosophy and a minor in theater. After graduation, Stebbins received her MFA in costume design from Carnegie Mellon University in 2009.

Contemporary French artist Laetitia Soulier plays with geometric shapes, repeating patterns and human models to encourage viewers to take a second look at her art. Interested visitors are able to do just that at the place where her work has been displayed since Sept. 16: the Hood Downtown exhibition space. Located at 53 Main Street, the exhibition space aims to fill the shoes of the Hood Museum of Art, which will remain closed for expansion and renovation for the next two and half years. During this time period, Hood Downtown will display the work of ten contemporary artists from different corners of the world.
I recently came across my list of reasons of why I chose Dartmouth. Before enrolling in Dartmouth’s Class of 2020, I had scribbled out a few bullet points on April 24 while I was visiting campus independently of Dimensions. Two days later, on a rival college’s campus, I committed to Dartmouth.
In Sept. 480 BC, Greek citizens took a stand for democracy. Under the leadership of Themistocles, an Athenian statesman and general, an armada of hundreds of Athenian warships and other pledged forces fought in the straits of Salamis, the narrow waters just south of Athens. That day, the Greeks saved Western civilization in one of the seminal battles of the Greco-Persian wars.
Imagine this scenario: one Sunday afternoon, two friends are in the Collis Center discussing the controversial issue of police brutality towards African Americans. One student thinks that the entire police system needs to be revamped, while the other thinks that the problem is exaggerated by the media and that there are larger, more intrinsic issues at hand. When the latter states the point that black-on-black violence takes more lives than police brutality, the former is shocked. How dare the friend state such a fact! Suddenly, the first student becomes offended, targeted but most importantly indignant, not only because that student is uncomfortable with the opposing opinion, but also because that student possesses a different view.
I spent most of my first week at Dartmouth in the infirmary. None of my bones were broken and I wasn’t reeling from the flu, but I was still in a great deal of pain. Though most people couldn’t see it, if they looked close enough they could have noticed cracks, little fractures revealing the sickness within.
Even if you don’t remember your dreams, most of us dream several times a night. It is estimated that an average person will have about 100,000 dreams in their lifetime. People who are blind can dream, too, and only people with certain disorders can’t dream. Your first dreams in your sleep cycle are shorter than the ones at the end of your sleep cycle, which can be up to 60 minutes long. It is thought that other mammals that can achieve REM sleep can also dream.
1. Tell us about some interesting dreams you’ve had.
In the fall, everyone seems to have a plan. Overly optimistic ’20s crowd Foco with innocent back-and-forths about planning their majors — econ, obviously. Pre-meds, at least for now, pack into health panels, new notebooks in hand.
Michael Sateia is an emeritus psychiatry professor at the Geisel School of Medicine, focusing on sleep. He was the director of the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Sleep Disorder Center for about 35 years. He is also an adjunct professor in the College’s Psychology department for the past 20 years, teaching an annual course on sleep and sleep disorders. Sateia graduated from Dartmouth in 1970, majoring in biopsychology — today known as neuroscience.
My freshman year, my two roommates and I decided to triple bunk our beds. We were living on the third floor of Russell Sage and had a tiny inner room in which we all slept. The idea was that triple bunking the beds would leave half of the room empty for a mini-trampoline (we didn’t have one), a drum kit (none of us played) or a blanket fort (it fell). I was on the topmost bed and hit my head on the ceiling a lot. Corinne, on the bottom, was about a half a foot away from the floor, and Kayuri, in the middle, felt like she was in a coffin. We took apart the beds shortly after bunking them, but there was a point where we were all dreaming stacked up on each other.
The year is 2079. I hear a knock, a soft two thuds landing on my door. My eldest daughter walks in, holding a transparent storage box haphazardly duct-taped together. She kisses me on the cheek and drops the box near my feet. We open it together, carefully tearing the tape away. When all the tape has been balled up, I take one end of the lid, and my daughter the other. We hear the click of release, and I hold my breath, wondering how many memories lay dormant and forgotten.
Settling upon “Dreams” for this week’s theme proved a mistake for Hayley, as it only inspired Lauren to discuss, at length, her disgusting recurring dreams about her teeth becoming injured or falling out, even after Hayley pointedly remarked that she doesn’t think anyone really cares about anyone else’s dreams.
