Students Reflect on MES and ASCL Split a Year Later

(10/09/19 6:00am)

Until a little over a year ago, the Asian Societies, Cultures, and Languages and Middle Eastern Studies programs were organized under the umbrella of the Asian and Middle Eastern Studies program and the Department of Asian and Middle Eastern Language and Literatures. In a February 2018 article published in The Dartmouth, comparative literature and film and media professor Dennis Washburn commented on the restructuring.

Empty Stands: Game Turnout at Dartmouth

(10/09/19 6:10am)

If there’s one thing I’ve learned since arriving on campus three weeks ago, it’s that Dartmouth rarely makes sense. Many aspects of this school have left me flustered — namely, how to order stir-fry at Collis or why GreenPrint takes at least 45 minutes to print out a two-page document. However, one aspect of Dartmouth that has particularly stood out to me is the discrepancy between the prominence of athletes and the lack of support for their games.

Privilege is everywhere at a school like Dartmouth — in our recently announced $5.7 billion endowment, in the names of the buildings around campus and in the students themselves. People casually wear Canada Goose Jackets and Patagonia sweaters, and many of them have summer homes. A fifth of the students here come from families in the top one percent of earners in the United States, and if you are not part of this fifth — as most of us are not — there are times when you feel out of place.

Charting New Territory: First-Generation Students at Dartmouth

(10/02/19 6:10am)

For many college students, institutions like Greek life or writing centers may seem to be inherent parts of college life. Perhaps this is thanks to hearing stories shared by parents about their college days or attending well-funded preparatory schools that are able to provide similar resources. But for a significant number of students on campus — roughly 16 percent of the incoming class of 2023 alone — the initial plunge into living and studying at college can be uncharted territory. I’m referring to the sizable community of first-generation students on campus: those who are the first in their families to attend college and untangle the chaotic web of challenges, expectations and emotions woven into the academic experience. 

Curing Spending Addictions

(10/02/19 6:15am)

College is often a financial burden for students and their families, but the cost of attending college goes way beyond tuition, meal plans and housing. Every student has their own way of navigating through the stress of college. Some of us go off-campus to get dinner or buy snacks to stress-eat; others like to go online and partake in some retail therapy. Though shopping online and meals out with friends might be fun, the miscellaneous expenses that come with college can quickly add up.

A Seat at the Table

(10/02/19 6:20am)

 John Kemeny, Dartmouth’s 13th president, had a vision of achieving Dartmouth’s future by fulfilling the promise of the College’s past. One of the goals of Kemeny’s tenure was to rededicate Dartmouth to its original purpose: the education of Native American students. This year marks the 250th Anniversary of Dartmouth’s establishment, which warrants a reflection not only on the College’s legacy, but also on the history and the voices of Native students in the Dartmouth community.

Salary vs. Passion: Choosing an "Employable Major"

(10/02/19 6:10am)

Whether or not you’d like to admit it, money is a factor that’s hard not to think about when choosing a major. In a perfect world, each student would simply choose the subject matter that they are most passionate about when considering their options, thinking only about the time and commitment it takes to fulfill all of the necessary requirements. However, for some, the amount of money they’ll make after leaving Hanover and entering the “real world” is a significant factor when deciding what they would like to focus on during their time at Dartmouth.

Beyond the Binary: Gender Inclusive Social Spaces

(09/25/19 6:15am)

It’s no secret that Greek life is prominent on Dartmouth’s campus. Enter any residential building, and I guarantee that you’ll find at least one “Animal House”-themed poster of John Belushi chugging Jack Daniels, perhaps an ode to the fact that the film was largely based on screenwriter Chris Miller’s ’63 experiences at a former Dartmouth fraternity. On a typical on-night, you’ll find groups of friends in frackets and dirty sneakers debating whether they will scope out the scene at another frat or head to Collis late night while crumpled cans of Keystones line the sidewalk.

Just doing a simple Google search of the word “gender” reveals the role that the socially constructed definition of women and men has on the perpetuation of gender stereotypes. This, along with the history of gender neutral pronouns and the gender wage gap of the workforce, are just a few of the topics that pop up. At Dartmouth, the idea of gender is also often on our minds as we navigate Greek spaces, interact in classrooms and even introduce ourselves. Though some of us may think about gender more than others, we are all conscious of it nonetheless, and it affects many of the decisions we make on a daily basis. 

TTLG: Unconnecting the Stars

(09/25/19 6:15am)

It was my second week back from First-Year Trips. I’d moved into my dorm early for the debate team pre-season, but with Orientation Week approaching, my floormates were finally arriving. I’d left my backpack in Robinson Hall earlier that day by mistake, and now it was dark. Still confusing in daylight, campus felt unfamiliar at night. Like many women coming to college, I’d been told not to walk alone, and so one of my new floormates joined me.

With a summer of exciting experiences behind us and an autumn of endless possibilities ahead of us, this term is one of new beginnings. The ’23s are navigating being away from home for the  first time, the ’22s are exploring a new sense of place on campus, many ’21s are completing their  first term in different locations than their friends and the ’20s are appreciating their last “firsts” of Dartmouth. But regardless of what year you are, the sea of new faces, ideas, perspectives and opportunities surrounding us during this time can make anyone feel a little lost.
