I’ve said it before (see my reviews of “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” and “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”) and I’ll say it again here: I love Star Wars. But my personal relationship with Star Wars is far less interesting to me than its broader cultural impact. And the popularity of Star Wars is practically incalculable. It may just be a collection of silly stories set in an insane fictional universe, but clearly those stories resonate.
You have probably seen a lot more of jewelry designer Matt Rabito ’18 than you think. An installation of his latest work is currently on display at the Hopkins Center for the Arts beside the staircase that leads to the Donald Claflin Jewelry Studio, a place that has molded Rabito’s Dartmouth experience.
Many of us have forgotten to call, text or otherwise contact those we are close to. Angela Orzell Tu’19 is working to design an application to solve this problem — Nudg, a personal relationship manager.

Professor Lee Witters teaches both Dartmouth undergraduates and Geisel School of Medicine graduate students, specializing in the natural sciences and relating the sciences to his interests in humanism.

He also started the Teaching Science Fellows program and works closely with students and faculty to make natural sciences and medicine more accessible for all.
Future quantitative social science majors will no longer be required to complete a thesis before graduating. This spring, the College’s QSS program updated its major requirements, adding a non-honors track that will be available to the Class of 2019 and later.

William "Billy" Sandlund '18, Yencheng Scholar
Over drinks one night last spring, Dartmouth Dance Ensemble co-director Rebecca Stenn and Dartmouth Symphony Orchestra Director Filippo Ciabatti discussed how ideal it would be for the two ensembles to work together. Each year, the DSO and DDE would have concerts on the same night, making collaboration impossible — but with enough planning for 2018, a joint performance could be possible.
Nine first-year medical students at the Geisel School of Medicine have been awarded the Albert Schweitzer Fellowship, which provides students with funding to complete innovative projects that improve the health, safety and welfare of the community. Each project will receive $2,000 in funding from the foundation.

Green Key was not the only crowd-drawing event that took place on campus this past weekend. On May 19 the Tuck Veterans Club hosted its annual Tuck Runs for Veterans event, drawing more than 170 participants, including Dartmouth students, faculty and Upper Valley residents.
Take a trip down memory lane, back to 1769, when Dartmouth was taking its first steps. The College was founded to serve as an institution to educate Native Americans. Despite this, Dartmouth’s relationship with Native Americans has been complicated; the College had no more than 20 Native students throughout the first 200 years of its history. Perhaps to pay homage to its past, and in recognition of its changing cultural values, Dartmouth has now enrolled more Native American students than all other Ivy League institutions combined, and the College’s Native American Studies program has become one of the most highly regarded in the country.
A friend, a relative, an Olympian and an old teammate: Four people who, though they did not do so knowingly, contributed in one way, shape or form over the past week to challenge my view of the world. It may sound hyperbolic, or tinged with shades of a philosophical game of Clue, so let’s start somewhere light: Green Key.
At the end of each academic year, The Dartmouth’s sports section puts up players to be voted upon by the student body as the best of the best.

The winners emerged only after a popular vote by members of the Dartmouth community. The D is happy to announce the following athletes as the winners of this year’s awards.
