Midsummer Musings: Active Trade Deadline Sets Apart MLB’s Haves from Have-nots

(08/13/21 6:00am)

This year, Major League Baseball experienced one of its most frenetic, star-studded trade deadlines ever. Ten current All-Stars, a record high, were exchanged at the deadline to make a total of 23 current or former All-Stars dealt. Another record-high 15 of those players were traded on deadline day alone. Even with the deadline pushed one day earlier, to July 30, this year, the 62 trades set an MLB record. In total, 158 players changed teams at this deadline, blowing the previous record of 128 out of the water.


Who Ran Off With Our Composite?

(08/13/21 7:00am)

Warm summer nights in Hanover lend themselves to outdoor music, late-night swimming and exploits such as hauling a 9’ by 5’ pong table across Webster Ave to your house of affiliation. That is, if you’re taking part in the friendly tradition of stealing from other Greek houses and setting off amicable wars of retaliation. The majority of Dartmouth students are Greek-affiliated, providing ample opportunity for inter-house shenanigans. Some frequently stolen items include pong tables and composite pictures of sorority and fraternity classes, but some ambitious thieves set their sights on more cumbersome or elusive objects.


Is Sophomore Summer Living Up to the Hype?

(08/13/21 7:10am)

Fortunately, for members of the Class of 2023 and some members of the Class of 2022 who are on-campus, an in-person sophomore summer is underway for the first time since 2019. Now that pandemic restrictions have been relaxed — for the most part — has our post-pandemic sophomore summer lived up to the expectations and rumours we heard from upperclassmen? 



Parents frustrated with fall housing shortage seek alternatives

(08/13/21 9:15am)

With Dartmouth preparing for a full reopening for the fall term, the demand for on-campus housing has outstripped supply, resulting in a housing shortage that has left dozens of students without a place to live come September. Though the College did offer financial incentives and work to expand the housing supply in other ways, a perceived lack of sufficient action has left some parents of students on the housing waitlist dissatisfied and searching for alternatives. 



Review: 'The Green Knight’s' strange tale proves worthy

(08/06/21 5:00am)

“The Green Knight” by David Lowery has been one of my most anticipated films of this year ever since I first saw the trailer for it in February of 2020 — a lifetime ago, in other words. I was excited to see it for a few reasons, and not just because of the fact that I’m a film minor and, as such, I’m contractually obligated to fawn over any and all A24 movies. I was excited because of my love for fantasy, my love for dark takes on well-trodden genres and because I greatly enjoyed Lowery’s last film, “The Old Man and the Gun.”




Dokken: A Line in the Sand

(08/06/21 8:05am)

Yesterday, Dartmouth announced that the College would be reinstating its indoor masking requirement in light of the Hanover Selectboard’s decision to renew its indoor masking policy on Aug. 4. Interim provost David Kotz and executive vice president Rick Mills also stated in a campus-wide email that the decision was made to “avoid future disruptions” and offer the community “the earliest possible return to normalcy.” 


Midsummer Musings: Fireworks of NBA Offseason Set Stage for Exciting Year

(08/06/21 6:00am)

Last week, I took a break from talking about my favorite subject, professional basketball, for almost the first time since starting this column. However, as they say, the NBA is a year-round spectacle, and the league’s second season, the offseason, began this week at a frenetic pace. Hence, now seems as good a time as any to dive into the numerous trades, signings and contract extensions that were completed across the league in recent days.

Having competed in the 2004 Athens Olympics and 2008 Beijing Olympics and taking home the gold medal and world record for men’s rowing in 2004, Allen has a plethora of experience succeeding at the highest level of competitive rowing.

Sororities issue safety rules for events with other Greek houses

(08/06/21 9:14am)

Dartmouth’s eight Inter-Sorority Council sororities have issued a safety standards and events policy for holding social gatherings with other Greek houses after releasing four interim requirements in July. The list of ten requirements will serve as “mandatory, non-negotiable” prerequisites for hosting social events, according to the document, a copy of which was obtained by The Dartmouth and is available below. 


College reinstates indoor mask mandate, but will not impose gathering limits or distancing requirements

(08/06/21 9:20am)

The College officially reinstated its indoor mask mandate Thursday, following new recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and similar measures adopted by the town of Hanover due to the spread of the COVID-19 Delta variant. However, as of now, physical distancing and restrictions on gathering size will not be imposed, nor will the outdoor masking requirement be reinstated, according to interim provost David Kotz. 


Opinion Asks: To Mask or Not to Mask?

(08/06/21 8:00am)

Summer term served as a test of Dartmouth’s ability to operate “normally” as the pandemic continues. It’s fair to say things have gone well so far: Until recently, cases have been few and far between even after most COVID-19 policies were rolled back in the last month. However, increasing case counts locally and the rapid spread of the Delta variant across the country have thrown a “normal” fall term into uncertainty. Just this week, Hanover reinstated its indoor mask mandate, and the College did the same yesterday. What should Dartmouth do to balance fears around COVID-19 with its long-promised return to normal operations? Should the College prioritize one over the other?
