I have only been at Dartmouth for six weeks, but I feel like I’ve been here my entire life — and not in a good way. Unfortunately, my parents went to Dartmouth. So did two of my grandfathers, two aunts and an uncle. If you cut me open, I’d probably bleed green. While my legacy status has its perks — for which I am incredibly grateful — I am always embarrassed to admit to the deep roots my family has in Hanover. It is not rare for someone to say “Oh, of course you got into Dartmouth! You’re a legacy legacy!”
If you somehow haven’t noticed, Dartmouth is kind of in the middle of nowhere. There are two national chains — Dominos and Starbucks — and about a billion more trees. The tallest building in the area is an old clock tower whose highest room is closed to students for the majority of the year. From almost any outdoor location on campus, the sun is visible all day. These days, the Dartmouth “Big Green” could more appropriately be titled the “Big Red, Yellow and Orange” as the trees’ leaves change to beautiful fall colors. “Vox Clamantis in Deserto,” Latin for the Bible verse “a voice crying out in the wilderness,” seems like an appropriate motto for our wonderfully rural college.

I can’t say that I have ever had a particularly dramatic spiritual experience. Sometimes I think it would be cool to be a mystic living in a cave with only visions to keep me company. Unfortunately, I don’t seem to be the sort of person gifted with the kind of temperament to become a desert-dwelling hermit. So, like the rest of us ordinary folk, I am restricted to finding the refuge I can in the sacred spaces around me. Sometimes, these are spaces which do not appear particularly spiritual at first glance.

Sam Gawel ’23 would have given anyone the shirt off his back, his girlfriend Nik Morgan ’23 said. For many, the idiom characterizes one’s selflessness and kindness, but remains a hypothetical — for Gawel, it was literal.
On Thursday, Russian chess grandmaster Garry Kasparov and Zimbabwean pastor Evan Mawarire — both pro-democracy activists — appeared as guest speakers in “Voices of Dissent,” a forum presented by the Dickey Center for International Understanding. More than 300 attendees filled the Hanover Inn Grand Ballroom for the event, at which Kasparov and Mawarire spoke about their experiences as advocates for democracy and human rights.
Since its launch in June, the anonymous posting platform Fizz has “almost the entire” undergraduate population at the College using it, according to Fizz co-founder Teddy Solomon, a student from Stanford University. Students, however, continue to have mixed opinions on the app.
On Friday, Oct. 21, the College held a Day of Caring in response to recent deaths of students and other community members. In lieu of classes, which were canceled for the day, students were encouraged to spend time caring for themselves and expressing care for others around them, according to the College.
As the Hopkins Center for the Arts prepares to undergo its upcoming renovation, many of the College’s arts facilities, including the theater and music departments as well as student workshops, will be displaced. The Black Family Visual Arts Center and the Sudikoff Lab will temporarily house these spaces during the anticipated three-year construction period, according to Hopkins Center director of external affairs Michael Bodel.
