Njaa: Will the House Communities Become a Valued Dartmouth Tradition?

(10/17/23 8:15am)

Dartmouth’s culture defines itself through its long-lasting traditions, which create a community of shared experiences. These traditions, such as the Homecoming Bonfire, Winter Carnival and First-Year Trips, are a vital part of what it means to be a Dartmouth student. Without the continuity of these unique traditions, the identity of the College and its students would be completely altered. In 2016, the College introduced the house communities, a change to student life that could potentially be ingrained in the school’s tradition. The system addressed complaints from alumni who claimed that, due to the D-Plan and other factors, they often did not know anyone on their floor in their respective residence halls while they were students. Consequently, many treated their room assignments as simply somewhere to sleep, rather than a community.

Review: Ed Sheeran’s New Album ‘Autumn Variations’ is a Triumph Teeming with Vulnerability and Raw Emotion

(10/16/23 6:00am)

Ed Sheeran’s newest album, “Autumn Variations” came out on Sept. 29 after minimal marketing — there were no singles or music videos released prior to its release. Though seasonally appropriate, the title of the album may pique the interest of devoted Sheeran fans because it is not named after a mathematical symbol like his previous albums. Instead, the album — from its title to its feel — is truly unique and vastly different from Sheeran’s previous releases. Overall, “Autumn Variations” is a triumph: an incredibly creative and intricate collection of music. The album’s sincerity, storytelling and ability to depict the complexity of the human condition via its meaningful lyrics is unparalleled in today’s musical landscape.
