Dear Class of 2022,
Dartmouth is a school grounded in its traditions. Known for having the smallest student population among the Ivies, many students insist that this long-held fact is key to maintaining the College’s unique charm. Last August, College President Phil Hanlon created a task force to explore the possibility of expanding the size of the undergraduate student body. The announcement was met with disapproval from students who felt that Dartmouth’s close-knit student population was key to its appeal.
The Class of ’53 Commons, Dartmouth’s major dining hall, is a familiar setting for most students. From throwing as much food as possible in a to-go container during finals week to enjoying a reunion meal with friends after a long off term, the dining hall has served as the venue for countless student interactions over the years since it opened. While students may be used to the seating and the food options, few students have seen the inner workings of the dining hall, which produces thousands of meals for a variety of dining venues across campus.
Dartmouth undergraduates are innovating surgical procedures, interviewing the Congressional Hispanic Caucus and investigating Dartmouth’s historical relationship with queer communities on campus. These are only some of the exciting ways students have engaged in undergraduate research. Colleges often label themselves as liberal arts colleges or research universities, but Dartmouth resides in the middle ground of these two categories. Dartmouth values undergraduate research highly, allocating millions from the endowment and current-use funding annually to supporting student projects.
Ask any Dartmouth tour guide, and they’ll tell you: 60 percent of Dartmouth students study abroad once, 30 percent study abroad twice and 10 percent study abroad three times or more. But why is this the case? Why is Dartmouth first in the Ivy League for study abroad participation?
James Nachtwey ’70 has had a career that has taken him around the world, from Lebanon, to Ireland, to South Africa, to the former Soviet Union. Since he became a conflict photographer in 1981, Nachtwey has won the Overseas Press Club’s Robert Capa Gold Medal five times, the World Press Photo award twice and the 2007 TED prize. He worked with the Bang Bang Club — four South African photographers who documented the end of apartheid in the early ’90s. In 2001, a documentary based on his career called “War Photographer” was released. The documentary was nominated for an Academy Award. The inspiration for his career, however, began at Dartmouth, as the civil rights movement and anti-Vietnam War sentiment hit their fever pitch. These events, as well as his discovery of art history, would prove instrumental in helping Nachtwey become the world-renowned photographer he is today.
Enshrined in the mission statement of the Dartmouth Outing Club, in addition to its commitment to fostering student community and leadership in the outdoors, is the principle of environmental stewardship. The DOC, one of the largest clubs on campus, acts as an umbrella organization under which many sub-clubs such as Cabin and Trail, Ledyard Canoe Club and the Organic Farm operate. Recently, many members of the DOC’s directorate have expressed interest in making greater sustainability efforts.
As fall term approaches, new and returning students begin to search for new opportunities to showcase their talents and become involved in the Dartmouth community. One of these opportunities is through the multitude of student-run performance groups active on campus.
What do a small independently-run library and a noisy, sticky-floored basement have in common? They are both iterations of Dartmouth’s Greek Life system, according to College archivist Peter Carini.
For most Olympic athletes, being the best at their sport is the pinnacle of success. But for Alexi Pappas ’12 — an Olympic long distance-runner — success on the field is not enough. Pappas is also an accomplished actor, writer and filmmaker. As she was preparing for the Rio 2016 Summer Olympics, where she broke Greek national records, Pappas began writing, co-directing and starring in “Tracktown.” Also starring Rachel Dratch ’88, “Tracktown” is a story about an Olympic runner whose life is upended after she twists her ankle during preparation for the Olympic trials. In this Q&A with The Dartmouth, Pappas recalls her experiences at the College and shares words of advice with incoming freshmen.
