Close to midnight on Sunday, Oct. 9, Indigenous students at Dartmouth gathered on the Green to kick off Indigenous Peoples’ Day, which officially began on Oct. 10 and commemorates Indigenous history and sovereignty. The events for the month are largely organized by Native Americans at Dartmouth, a student organization founded to support and celebrate Native and Indigenous students.
Despite comprising 64% of eligible students, Greek life at Dartmouth has a peculiar knack for wiggling its way out of campus discourse. To be sure, there is no shortage of surface-level conversation; we fill in friends on where we went over the weekend and we discuss the latest fraternity scandal, but we rarely talk seriously about more foundational aspects of Greek life. Students eagerly interrogate institutions for their sexist and exclusionary pasts in Canvas posts and midterm papers, but seldom acknowledge just how strange it is that our primary social spaces are gender-segregated. And for all our academic talk of “power dynamics,” it’s remarkable how little “pledge term” is recognized as a paradigm case.
In his junior year of high school, Joshua Watson ’22 was preparing for a long-awaited trip to scuba dive in Belize when a basketball hit him in the face during a practice with his varsity team, smashing and breaking his nose. Doctors advised him not to go on his trip — which was just days away — until they could schedule his surgery. Watson’s mother, April Morrow, said her son — ever determined and eager for an adventure — forwent treatment to make the trip.

In this year’s rendition of the Granite Bowl, Dartmouth fell 14-0 to the University of New Hampshire, extending its losing streak to four games and dropping its record to 1-4. The game was more lopsided than the score alone indicates, with the Wildcats possessing the ball for nearly twice as long as Dartmouth, while the Big Green was held to 198 offensive yards – the team’s lowest output in 11 years.
Growing up in a desert city, I never thought that I would be so deeply connected to an album written about a small town in Vermont. Yet, Noah Kahan’s “Stick Season,” released on Oct. 14, perfectly embodies the transitional period between fall and winter in New England — something Dartmouth students are all too familiar with. For the Dartmouth community, this album is already a community treasure: Kahan graduated from Hanover High School and draws on his upbringings in Strafford, Vt. and Hanover in the album. Whether a New England native or someone who has never visited, Kahan has created widespread nostalgia for the region through the album.

Caroline Cook’s ’21 first novel, “Tell Them To Be Quiet and Wait” will be released on Nov. 1 to coincide with Dartmouth’s 50th anniversary of coeducation. The book is inspired by the life of Hannah Croasdale, Dartmouth’s first female professor to receive tenure. The novel follows two fictional women from two different times, 1935 and 2015, and explores how each navigates academia and science all the while emulating the true events of Croasdale’s life. During her time at Dartmouth, Cook studied Croasdale extensively through a student research fellowship at the Rauner Special Collections Library.
On Sept. 29, award-winning writer Jacinda Townsend delivered the Cleopatra Mathis Poetry & Prose Lecture at Sanborn Library. This annual lecture series was created in honor of the founder of Dartmouth’s creative writing program, Cleopatra Mathis, to connect students to literary figures.
This past Monday marked Indigenous Peoples’ Day in the United States. Twenty states plus the District of Columbia and countless cities across the country officially recognized the holiday this year in an effort to acknowledge the historical mistreatment of Native American, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian people throughout the history of the United States. In the places that celebrate Indigenous Peoples’ Day, the holiday replaces or coincides with Columbus Day, which was first designated a national holiday in 1934 but ultimately ignores over 500 years of Indigenous hardship and suffering at the hands of European colonizers.
On Oct. 9, more than 2,000 individuals gathered on the corner of College and East Wheelock streets to kick off the 17th annual Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Hero race.

All funds raised will go towards supporting children in pediatric intensive care and those receiving patient and family support services.

The number of bids extended by fraternities increased by 30 compared to last fall, up from 344. Meanwhile, despite a historic high of registration, the ISC’s number of new members decreased by 11 members from 308 last fall.
Dartmouth (4-0) cruised to its 13th win in a row — including last season — after dominating Mount St. Mary’s 79-0 on the road in Emmitsburg, Md. on Saturday.
