Dartmouth professors come from a variety of fields of study, backgrounds and careers; however, Elisabeth Newton has a unique and consequential claim to fame. In 2018, Newton led a research team which discovered an exoplanet.

The Class of 2023 this year chowed down on vegetarian lasagna, lugged blocks of Cabot cheese into the wilderness and struggled to sort out which of their trip leaders’ comments were helpful advice or pranks — much like previous classes of new Dartmouth students. However, there were a number of changes to the First-Year Trips program this year that impacted croolings, trip leaders and trippees alike.
When students returned to Hanover this fall, many were surprised to run into a pop-up traffic light, which did not exist before, at the intersection of Webster Avenue and N. Main Street. The light had been installed as a temporary solution to guide cars around the construction sites on campus, but its presence confused students and obstructed traffic.
The College earned what dean of admissions and financial aid Lee Coffin referred to as the “triple crown” of admissions this year, setting three institutional records. In addition to the largest application pool for the first time since 2012 and the lowest admit rate in College history, 7.9 percent, the Class of 2023 also boasted Dartmouth’s highest final yield rate: 64 percent, up from 61 percent last year and 58 percent for the Class of 2021. The yield rate represents the portion of students offered admittance to the College who eventually chose to attend Dartmouth.

When I came to Dartmouth, I thought I was ready to do the worst academically. Call it low self-esteem, call it imposter syndrome — a rose by any other name would smell as sweet. And, at times, I have been the worst in class. How can I describe what it’s like to look at the range of scores for economics and biology midterms and see yours at the bottom of the range? Especially after you actually tried? Sometimes, there is no direct relationship between the effort you put in and the outcome you get when it comes to academics. I’ve come to accept that here.
There’s a saying at the College that it’s easy to get caught up in the “Dartmouth bubble.” Since Hanover, NH — pop. 11,485 — provides limited forms of entertainment for college students, the attention of the school community turns inward. Not much can lever our attention away from the center. This summer, however, the sacred Dartmouth bubble was popped.
Dartmouth’s endowment grew by 7.5 percent over the last fiscal year, bringing its total value to a new high of $5.7 billion, the College announced on Tuesday.

Federal immigration officers operated a checkpoint on I-89 outside of Lebanon on Thursday, surprising residents, attracting strong criticism from immigrant rights groups and campus organizations and prompting an official rebuke from the College.
Dear Class of 2023,
When people find out that I go to Dartmouth, they often ask me, “How do you like it?” Even though I should know how to respond as a rising senior, it’s a question that I still struggle with. In the few seconds it takes for me to conjure up a response, I find it difficult to encapsulate all of my experiences, thoughts and feelings into a coherent response without seeming too enamored — or conversely, disillusioned by a lot of what I’ve experienced on this campus. My answer has evolved from term to term, but providing an honest and critical response to this question may seem inappropriate or perhaps ungrateful to some.
As you transition to Dartmouth life, there’s something you need to study up on. No, it’s not prepping for your pre-med classes or trying to learn the alma mater (no one really knows that anyway), but it is much more essential: you gotta learn the lingo.
