The results of the most recent Student Assembly elections are disappointing, not because the Khan-Muñoz campaign lost, but because I am worried that students who are struggling may feel left behind if their immediate needs sink into the background. After the year that many students have gone through at Dartmouth, with isolation in virtual classes, whiplash for varsity sports teams, permanent closure of libraries, cuts to study abroad programs and general inaction on the part of the administration, Student Assembly’s responsibility to act and move us toward material change is more clear now than ever.
As the nationwide vaccine rollout continues, residents of New Hampshire have more than just the hill winds in their veins. According to data from The New York Times, the Granite State leads the U.S. in vaccine distribution both in terms of percentage of allocated vaccines distributed and the percentage of the population with at least one shot.
This summer, students will have limited opportunities for on-campus instruction, with just over 11.6% of course offerings available fully in person. Only 21 course sections in 19 undergraduate courses will be taught fully in person this summer, up from 10 courses offered fully in person this spring.

In the beginning of this year’s award season, many awards shows had trouble adapting to the virtual setting necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic. After watching the trials and tribulations of the Grammys and the Golden Globes, the Academy Awards executed their show quite well in comparison: The part-in-person, part-virtual show progressed without any major technical difficulties. For the third straight year, there was no host; instead, the Academy rotated awards presenters. Even with the success of the format, though, the ceremony had only 10.4 million viewers, making it the least-watched Oscars since the Academy started recording views in 1974.
With last Thursday marking the 51st annual Earth Day, the Dartmouth community celebrated with a number of in-person and virtual events to raise awareness for environmental issues and the importance of sustainability in the face of climate change. The week’s programming included a number of activities put on by student-led organizations and the sustainability office and wrapped up with a town hall of Dartmouth administrators titled “Five Years into ‘Our Green Future.’”
Pride 2021, a celebration of LGBTQ+ identities at Dartmouth, began on April 24 and will run through May 8. Unlike last year’s celebration, which was held completely online, programming will include both in-person and virtual components.
Despite the COVID-19 pandemic putting much of campus life on hold, from in-person classes to Ivy League sports, one aspect of the College’s campus operations has been moving full-steam ahead even amidst the pandemic: construction.

As we approach the midway point of the term, old routines are starting to solidify. The same long lines pile up in Collis each morning, and by the afternoon, students have migrated to the Green to bask in the sun after a surprisingly snowy start to spring. We end the day people watching in Foco or gearing up to finally finish that problem set we’ve been procrastinating all week. Maybe these routines give us comfort — something we can rely on in the midst of all this uncertainty.
From April 5-11, the Hopkins Center for the Arts held a symposium that brought together acclaimed speakers to discuss the issue of police violence and its ties to racial injustice. Since the symposium, Derek Chauvin’s trial has ended with his conviction of second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. However, the end of the trial did not mark the end of police violence, nor the discourse surrounding it, in America; it remains an ongoing issue. This week, The Dartmouth sat down with art history professor and symposium co-organizer Mary Coffey to ask her to reflect on the event as well as provide insight into what students can do to remain engaged in the fight against police violence. These answers reflect Coffey’s personal views, and she noted that she avoids pushing any specific views onto her students.
In their first contests in more than a year, Dartmouth’s men’s and women’s lacrosse returned to Sculley-Fahey Field against Tufts University on Sunday as part of the Big Green’s return to play this past weekend. Both squads fell to the Jumbos in lopsided affairs: the men lost 15-9, while the women fell 11-5.
Although New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu allowed the statewide mask mandate to expire on April 16, Hanover and other surrounding towns will continue their local ordinances. At the College, face coverings are required in indoor settings and most outdoor settings.
“Dartmouth has not released a large amount of information about sophomore summer and what it will look like, but has said that it will be a hybrid term in preparation for a return to some sort of normalcy in the fall. According to the recently released timetable, however, there will only be around 20 in-person classes offered this summer. Given that sophomore summer is intended to be a transition term, what do you think it should look like? (this can draw on on-campus policies, course selection, housing & more).”
After introducing an antigen testing regimen at the beginning of spring term to supplement PCR testing, the College stopped administering rapid antigen tests on April 8 as a result of the lengthy wait times the new regimen caused.
A longtime Hanover mainstay, the Hanover poster store International DVD and Poster — recently renamed to Records, Memorabilia and Posters New Hampshire — has reopened its doors after moving from its old location on South Main Street. Store owner Bryan Smith said that the store reopened April 1 at its new location at nearby 57 South Main Street, next to the Nugget Movie Theater.
As part of the Big Green’s first weekend of sports since the COVID-19 shutdown, the softball team returned to play on Saturday, facing the University of Massachusetts Amherst in a doubleheader. In the first game, behind an excellent performance from pitcher Madie Augusto ’22, the Big Green started its season with a 6-2 win. In Game 2, despite holding an 8-0 lead after four innings, Dartmouth went on to lose in a 15-13 thriller.
Hanover will maintain its mask mandate until experts from the town, College and Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center agree that it should be lifted, according to town manager Julia Griffin.
