COVID-19 Confusion

(11/10/21 7:20am)

After a week of fraternity events shutting down and students obsessively checking the COVID-19 Dashboard, it seems fitting that I virtually raised my hand to write about this topic at the hastily-moved-to-Zoom Mirror story assignment meeting. Inevitably, COVID-19 has made its way back to Dartmouth’s campus — there have been a total of 26 new cases in the past seven days, including 12 undergraduate students. 


An Ode to Librex: the App you Love to Hate to Love

(11/10/21 7:15am)

Every day on Librex is a new day: a few Tuesdays ago, the only topic of discussion was — as you might guess — it being Tuesday. We’ve now moved into 403 discourse, where all Librex users and abusers have (rather mystifyingly) given their thoughts on people who live in rooms with the number 403. Gone are the constant rush posts of yester-week, nostalgic artifacts of a bygone era; here to stay are self-therapy posts and 4 a.m. M4F’s (for non-users, this implies that the male poster (M) is looking ‘4’ a female). 


A Step Back in Time at the Nugget

(11/10/21 7:10am)

Tucked in the middle of bustling Main Street is one of Hanover’s hidden gems: the Nugget, a cozy brick movie theater that has been serving the town since 1916. In the age of streaming services and COVID-19, the role of the Nugget and other small-town cinemas has changed considerably. Still, over a hundred years after its opening, the theater is still operating and hosting a steady stream of moviegoers.

We’re not going to sugarcoat it: Week 9 is tough. Daylight savings means that the sun sets before 2As are even over — and in our final weeks of the term, it’s likely we’re all leaving the library well past the last flicker of daylight (unless you’ve pulled an all-nighter, but well, then you’ve got bigger issues). Your professors are likely scrambling to finish the course curriculum before the 10-week mark, and it’s possible that you’ve found yourself over a month behind on textbook readings that you’ve just discovered will, in fact, be on the final.




Eight Eerie Weeks at Dartmouth

(11/03/21 6:20am)

I spent many sleepless nights this summer consumed by worries about college; my thoughts whirled in endless circles as I contemplated all of the gruesome fates that could befall me at Dartmouth. As September arrived and I set off on the 15-hour drive to campus, I was still plagued by worries — and unfortunately, the long trip gave me ample time to grow increasingly stressed out by questions of whether I would make friends, keep up with the demanding academics and survive living 1,000 miles away from my Indiana hometown. 


Did They Keep Their Promise? An Updated Look at Mental Health Resources

(11/03/21 6:25am)

Few would disagree that mental health has become a critical issue on campus. Last year saw the sharp increase of rates of anxiety and depression in students, as well as with four deaths among the student body, three of which were by suicide among the Class of 2024. An investigation by The Dartmouth last July confirmed that the College’s existing mental health infrastructure was insufficient to handle this rise in mental health struggles on campus, although College President Phil Hanlon pledged in an email to campus last May — days after the death of Elizabeth Reimer ’24 — to increase mental health support. Now, months later, students are wondering whether the administration delivered on its promise.

Well, it looks like spooky season hasn’t passed us by just yet. Halloween decorations that have overstayed their welcome linger ominously in front yards, the stress of finals lurks around the corner and — perhaps scariest of all — the end of fall term is approaching dangerously quickly. For some seniors, this will be the last New England fall they experience at Dartmouth. Just the thought of an October without fresh apple cider donuts and peak foliage is enough to spook even the most fear-loving among us. 



‘Shocked, But Also Turned On’: Student Experiences at Lingerie

(11/03/21 6:10am)

Every term, a line snaking across the lawn in front of The Tabard eagerly awaits entrance to a one-of-a-kind performance: Lingerie. The quarterly dry show hosted at the co-ed fraternity includes a variety of events performed by talented volunteers from all class ages. From burlesque to breakdancing, the performances are all meant to support and bolster values such as body positivity, inclusivity and open-mindedness. 


Lamenting Late Night

(10/27/21 6:15am)

Dartmouth Dining Services has had to make a number of adjustments due to the pandemic, most notably to the beloved late-night food program. Collis Cafe late night, which was originally shut down after the start of the pandemic in March, has not made a return, leaving students with the Hop Courtyard Cafe and Novack Cafe as the primary places on campus to get food at night. 




“Empathy is the Starting Point”: Human Centered Design Minor Teaches Problem Solving Through a Human Lens

(10/27/21 6:15am)

When considering Dartmouth’s “must-take” classes, it seems ENGS 12, “Design Thinking” always tops the list. Over 100 students enroll in the course each year, and over 100 additional students are still sent to a waitlist, according to Engineering professor Peter Robbie, who described the class as “a foundational course in creativity.” While ENGS 12 is a quintessential course even for non-engineering majors, it also serves as a core course for the human centered design minor, which, according to the minor’s webpage, focuses on “the process of innovation for addressing human needs.” I sat down with Robbie and two current human centered design students to explore one of Dartmouth’s most unique programs.

It’s a weird time at Dartmouth: Fall foliage is post-peak, the usual sunny blue sky has been masked by grey clouds and we’re at the lull before the second round of midterms. At night, the humid air creates a murky haze over the lampposts that light the Green, replicating an eerie horror-movie scene. This weekend is also Halloween, which perhaps contributes to the unsettling nature of this week. 


More Employees, Please

(10/20/21 6:15am)

Longer wait times, skyrocketing prices, more limited menu offerings — across the nation, this is the new reality for restaurant-goers. The entire food service industry is struggling with the lingering effects of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, with issues such as labor shortages and supply chain disruption impacting the industry in numerous ways. In a survey conducted by Alignable with small and medium-sized business owners, 85% of restaurant owners said it was “very difficult” to find staff, and only 3% said they weren’t struggling to hire. 


Hello From the Other Side: Reflecting on Rush

(10/20/21 6:05am)

For many Dartmouth students, Greek life provides a space for them to connect with people outside of their normal circles on campus. Joining Greek life can make the College feel smaller and less overwhelming — especially after a year spent behind masks and on Zoom. This fall specifically, sorority rush was an important kind of mass introduction for a large portion of Dartmouth students. 



Norwich Farmers Market: It’s a Big Dill

(10/20/21 6:10am)

In New England, the autumn leaves are most certainly “falling down like pieces into place,” as Taylor Swift sings in “All Too Well.” The Norwich Farmers Market in Vermont is a fabulous fall excursion: This outdoor market has several vendors selling products ranging from fresh produce to skincare items to coffee. The environment is incredibly welcoming and visitors leave with delicious goodies and special memories.
