At this year’s HackDartmouth, sleep was optional.
Last week, researchers at the Geisel School of Medicine and Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center received an award worth up to $42 million from the National Institutes of Health to study the influence of environmental exposures on children’s health.
To Christopher Sneddon, water is not only the source of human life, but also the source of many human conflicts. The geography and environmental studies professor’s research interests lie in settling human interests with environmental sustainability. For Sneddon, this has largely taken form in water research, specifically focusing on changes in river-basins in “third-world” — a term he acknowledges as problematic — settings. For instance, he studied the Mekong River Basin in East Asia in one of his largest research projects. More recently, his research has shifted in subject, era and location. He is currently working on a project with fellow College professors Francis Magilligan and Coleen Fox studying dam removal in New England, in which he concentrates on the social dimensions of such removal. And there is no great divide between his research and teaching subjects. Rather, he views research and teaching as mutually dependent. Sneddon, who earned his Ph.D. in geography from the University of Minnesota, published a book titled “Concrete Revolution: Large Dams, Cold War Geopolitics, and the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation” last year and teaches classes on topics such as environmental history and politics.

The premise of special collections is an art form that breaks the conventions of time.
Not even receiving two degrees in the laws of physics could keep Enrique Martinez Celaya from resisting the pull of art. Nor could Martinez Celaya resist the pull of Hanover. This term he is returning to campus as a Roth Family Distinguished Visiting Scholar, a position reserved for thinkers who will expand the scope of student thought. He previously served as a Montgomery Fellow, another endowed residency position that brings leaders to Dartmouth, two years ago.
“Bridget Jones’s Baby” (2016) opens with a familiar scene: Bridget Jones, alone on the couch with an egregiously large glass of wine and Jamie O’Neal’s rendition of “All By Myself” blasting aptly in the background. In accordance with the previous two films, she’s sad, she’s lonely and it just so happens to be her birthday.
Glittery electropop music played and colorful lights flashed during the first Friday Night Rock concert of the school year. The performance, which took place in Sarner Underground this past Friday, featured electronic musician Jessy Lanza along with opening band Home Body.
I am dumbfounded. When I read that Irving Oil was funding Dartmouth’s Arthur L. Iriving Institute for Energy and Society, I checked to see if the article was in The Onion. Sadly, it was not.
I’m writing this to the activists who are considering joining a Greek house or holding Greek leadership positions to promote “change from within” the system. My advice to you: don’t.

It’s not everyday that most of us find ourselves running through an unfamiliar forest in search of checkpoints. For most, the thought of having to navigate during a race without the use of a phone is a nightmare. Yet it’s precisely this combination of speedy decision-making skills, physical endurance and map interpretation abilities that is essential to orienteering, a navigation race that originated in Scandinavia in the late 19th century.
This past Sunday was far from a lazy one for Phil Claudy ’18. While most students were sleeping in, Claudy was racing in the IRONMAN Chattanooga Triathlon in Tennessee. He had never competed in a triathlon before, but now he was racing in a distance at the very highest level of the sport.
