It can be hard to connect the classroom to real life, but economics professor Andrew Levin is trying to do just that. Levin, whose past ventures include giving technical advice to the Bank of Ghana and working for Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, wants to teach students not just how to make connections between theory and practice, but to show them what being an economist in the real world looks like.
Staceyann Chin performed "Motherstruck!" at the Hop Wednesday night.
To some Democrats, he’s the end of the world, the apocalypse or the sign of doomsday. To some Republicans, he’s change, a breath of fresh air or an outsider. To Vladimir Putin, he’s a “colorful” man. On both sides of the political aisle and even in other countries, the Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump may appear to be a wild card.
Cécile McLorin Salvant emphasizes the authenticity of the creative process.
Any liberal arts college can be characterized by its emphasis on the written word. Be it literature, philosophy, mathematics, chemistry or anything in between, a liberal arts education places an explicit emphasis on the ability to effectively communicate, through writing, about whatever your area of study happens to be. As a liberal arts college, Dartmouth should be no exception, and it doesn’t claim to be. Indeed, two of the first nine classes a student ever takes at Dartmouth are supposed to be dedicated to ensuring that they can write clearly and effectively. After the much-lauded first-year writing requirements, however, it seems like the College’s emphasis on, and possibly respect for, writing declines significantly. It is treated as a means of getting ideas across about your subject of interest, and not much more. The fact that Dartmouth doesn’t have a writing, creative writing or communications major severely disadvantages us as students and makes us considerably less competitive going into the real world after graduation.
Expectations may seem a given for an artist familiar with the spotlight, but Cécile McLorin Salvant says otherwise.
Wednesday night in Moore Auditorium, the audience rose to its feet as Staceyann Chin stood proudly in the center of the stage, her feet spread wide apart, her fists thrust high into the air and her face filled with raw emotion. Chin, fresh off giving a rousing performance of her critically acclaimed one-woman show “Motherstruck!,” accepted her standing ovation with a roar of glee, eliciting yet more laughter from an audience that had been chuckling at her jokes all night long.
Walter Banfield ’17 competed in the men’s lightweight single sculls at the U-23 Worlds.
The D's sports staff offer their picks for which football teams will win in week 2 of Ivy League play, including Dartmouth versus Holy Cross and Yale versus Cornell.
Three members of the Big Green rowing family, Walter Banfield ’17, Bobby Moffitt ’16 and men’s heavyweight head coach Wyatt Allen, skipped the pond at the end of August to compete at the 2016 World Rowing Under 23 Championships in the Netherlands. Banfield rowed the men’s lightweight single sculls, his third appearance at Worlds, while both Moffitt and Allen represented the Big Green — and the United States — in the men’s eight. In his third appearance as a coach at Worlds, Allen took on a new role as the lead coach of the eight. Moffitt sat in the bow, a departure from his role in the middle crew at Dartmouth.
Dartmouth students were largely in favor of giving minority applicants preference in admissions and faculty hiring procedures, a recent study co-authored by Madeline Brown ’16, Lauren Martin ’16 and government professors John Carey and Yusaku Horiuchi found.
The College’s resident “corpse flower,” known as Morphy, is expected to bloom at the end of this week for the first time since July 2011. Housed in the greenhouse atop the Class of 1978 Life Sciences Center, the 13-year-old specimen of Amorphophallus titanum has only bloomed one other time throughout its life. The flower will bloom for two to three days.
Expect to see more scaffolding around campus. The College announced a plan on Sept. 8 to expand and reconstruct the west side of Dartmouth in an effort to connect central campus to the Connecticut river.
From kung fu training in Thailand to poetry writing, Devin Singh, now beginning his second year at Dartmouth, is not your typical religion professor. Growing up in a multicultural family, Singh’s childhood consisted of extensive traveling and cultural exposure. His experiences living in Morocco, Punjab, Romania, Bosnia, Thailand and Cameroon, where his home was bombed as collateral damage in an attempted coup d’état, left him with a fascination with the cultural diversity of the world and a yearning to learn more. After earning a Ph.D. from Yale University, he became a Mellon postdoctoral fellow in integrated humanities and a lecturer in religious studies at Yale. Currently, he is a 2016-2017 Dartmouth Public Voices Fellow with OpEd Project. His study of the close relationship between economic concepts and Christianity was awarded the Whiting Fellowship at Yale and the Manfred Lautenshlaeger Award for Theological Promise from the University of Heidelberg, Germany.
On Sunday morning we woke up to the news of another terrorist attack. After the terrorist attacks in Paris, France, San Bernardino, California and Orlando, Florida, those in Nice, France, New York and Minnesota now seem to have been the targets of radical Islamic terrorism.
Martha Rosler created a photomontage called “The Grey Drape” (1967-72). The piece shows a woman in a silky dress pulling open a window frame in her modern American home, smiling placidly despite the soldiers marching on a battlefield outside her window. This image appears in my head whenever I contemplate the collective attitude in New Hampshire toward the Black Lives Matter movement. Like the woman in her utopic home, Dartmouth and New Hampshire as a whole tend to evade the issue of police brutality due to a false perception that it doesn’t concern New Englanders, white people or students at the College. According to those with this mindset, race doesn’t matter in a state like ours.
I grew up in a small town with small-town values. I knew almost everyone in my high school, and most of my friends spent their weekends running outside or going to church. I still clearly remember the shock I felt when, one spring day about four years ago, I visited my sister, a Dartmouth ‘16, at college and first set foot in a fraternity.
Last week, U.S. News and World Report released its highly anticipated national university rankings. While Dartmouth’s standing in terms of undergraduate teaching plunged from second to seventh place, the College on the hill moved up to 11th place overall. At the very least, we can breathe a sigh of relief now that we have beat Cornell by a solid margin across both measures. Our counterparts in Ithaca will thankfully continue to be the butt of Ivy League humor.
With her trusty X-Acto knife, a love for color and a distinct penchant for productivity, Celeste Jennings ’18 has already started to make a name for herself in the world of design.
