New Year, New Me?

(01/11/23 7:15am)

My family has never been one to celebrate New Year’s Eve. By the time the ball drops, we’re usually asleep. As a result, the beginning of the new year has never felt much like an occasion to set drastic goals, and I’ve often preferred to set seasonal goals instead of year-long resolutions. This has grown even more true at Dartmouth, where each term is so drastically different that it would be almost impossible to come up with a laundry list of unifying goals. 

Editors' Note

(01/11/23 7:00am)

And just like that, we’re back. Hanover might not have looked like a winter wonderland when we stepped off the coach, but it was still a welcome sight. Maybe it’s just a sign that we’re settling into our senior status, but there’s something oddly reassuring about returning just in time for a bout of dismal weather. Every year, our six-week winterim has a funny way of feeling both too long and not long enough, but coming back just feels right. I (Caris) even caught myself telling my family — while home in California — that I was excited to fly “home” (to Dartmouth) after New Year’s.

Economics students stuck in Cusco, Peru during December protests

(01/10/23 10:00am)

Students who traveled to Peru as members of fall term’s ECON 70, “Immersion Experience in Applied Economics and Policy” — a class that includes traveling to a country of study during the interim break — were initially trapped in the country for an additional two days because of the political unrest from a coup instituted by its then-president, according to the course’s professor Diego Comin. 

Nearly nonexistent January snowfall impacts environment, disrupts winter traditions

(01/10/23 10:05am)

It feels unusual for students to return for winter term and see bare grass on campus, but this phenomenon may become much more common in coming years. Hanover’s changing temperatures — which have increased by four to five degrees Fahrenheit in the last century — are caused by climate change and will continue to affect Dartmouth traditions like cross country ski racing and the Winter Carnival, according to earth science professor Erich Osterberg. 

The Run: A Foreign Route

(01/09/23 6:00am)

This winter break, I had the opportunity to embark on a trip to South Africa with the Rockefeller Center for Public Policy. The purpose of this two week trip was to study racial reconciliation policy post-apartheid, which included daily meetings with experts in the policy, business, education or nonprofit sectors, speaking with locals about their experiences, immersing ourselves in the culture and ultimately producing a memo with policy recommendations. 

Matthew Libby’s ‘Sisters’ explores the connections between humans and technology

(01/09/23 7:05am)

Matthew Libby’s “Sisters” is a story about family dynamics told by two sisters, Matilda played by Jihan Haddad and Greta played by Madeleine Barker. However, Greta is not human, but, instead, artificial intelligence. The story follows Matilda’s life, development and coming of age, while simultaneously, we see Greta’s development as a computer through her interaction with her sister. The play explores how the paths of the sisters intersect, eventually diverge and reach resolution in becoming one again.

Cheri Pierson sues former College trustee and BVAC namesake Leon Black ’73 for rape

(01/06/23 10:00am)

On Nov. 28, Cheri Pierson filed a lawsuit alleging that former College trustee Leon Black ’73 — the namesake of the Black Family Visual Arts Center — raped her at the home of convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein in 2002. Pierson is represented by Wigdor LLP, the same law firm representing Guzel Ganieva, another woman who is suing Black for sexual harassment. Ganieva’s lawsuit, filed in June 2021, had previously been amended in Sept. 2021 to include Pierson as another woman Black assaulted, referred to then as “Jane Doe.”

Adelekun’s SportsCenter Top 10 Play not enough against Cornell in men’s basketball Ivy League opener

(01/06/23 6:05am)

When Cornell University’s guard found separation on a give-and-go just nine seconds into the second half of Dartmouth’s New Year’s Day Ivy League opener, it was understandable that Dame Adelekun ’23 wanted a breather. Cornell’s offense leads the Ivy League in nearly every offensive statistic, averaging 84 points a game and, as displayed in that moment, continuing to mystify opponents with its passing wizardry.

Before the Curtain: Arts on Campus Week 2

(01/06/23 7:00am)

Since fall term ended in November, two new exhibits have opened at the Hood Museum of Art. The “Historical Imagery” collection, which opened on Dec. 17, features art that explores U.S. history — including an unfinished study of Emanuel Leutze’s “Washington Crossing the Delaware.”. On Jan. 4, an exhibit featuring the work of Margaret Bourke-White opened highlighting her images from World War II and Life Magazine.

In the 10 years since Dartmouth established its current academic schedule — creating the six-week break known as “Winterim” — Hanover businesses still must “adapt” to students’ extended December absence, according to Murphy’s on the Green owner Nigel Leeming.
