The Student Worker Collective at Dartmouth will become a recognized union following a unanimous vote among student workers today, almost three months after they formally announced their intention to unionize. The SWCD was only required to meet a 50 percent support threshold from student worker voters to be successful. This vote will make SWCD the fifth recognized undergraduate union in the country, according to their Twitter account.

When I opened social media over spring break, I was instantly greeted by hundreds of pictures of Dartmouth students swimming in crystal clear water, girls in matching bikinis and location tags broadcasting the names of Caribbean islands I’d honestly never heard of before. After spending hours scrolling through picture after picture, I deleted most of my social media apps, unable to look at people’s seemingly perfect vacations for any longer. I was experiencing a classic case of FOMO (fear of missing out).
Some students and staff have expressed support for the lifting of certain longstanding campus COVID-19 restrictions, applauding the flexibility that the new policies give community members.

College kids getting sick is not a new phenomenon — we live in close quarters, work ourselves too hard and spend our weekends in musty frat basements. This term, the first few weeks were marked with hundreds of Dartmouth students contracting COVID-19. Now, as COVID cases decline, students’ runny noses and coughs remain — in recent weeks, campus has seen an uptick in cases of influenza A.
Though the College administration has condemned Russia’s military invasion of Ukraine and offered support for affected students, students from Ukraine said they believe the campus community could do more to support them.

On November 22, 1971, the front page of The Dartmouth was dominated by four decisive words: “DARTMOUTH TO ADMIT WOMEN.” Although Dartmouth was far from the first institution to admit women — all of the other Ivy League schools had already made the switch — this landmark decision marked a sharp break in the College’s long history as a men’s school and shook the foundations of what many knew as “dear old Dartmouth.”
In their Feb. 21 decision to pause further development of the proposed Lyme Road apartments until May, College faculty cited the project’s potential impact on the “undergraduate experience.” College administrators in favor of the proposal, on the other hand, believe the apartments could be utilized as a “swing space” to house students as current residential facilities undergo renovations.
Friday’s winter snowstorm did not keep a crowd from gathering on the Green to stand in solidarity with Ukraine, which is currently battling a full-scale Russian invasion.

It’s not unusual for a Dartmouth student to brush shoulders with an Olympian or Olympic hopeful. Currently, there are six Dartmouth students and alumni skiing in the 2022 Winter Olympics, and several current students ski for the U.S. Team or are otherwise skiing professionally. While they’re competing at such a high level, skiers also need to keep up with their academic lives as Dartmouth students. I sat down with some of Dartmouth’s pro skiers to see how they balance their athletic careers with their academic ones.
The College and the Student Worker Collective at Dartmouth, an organization currently engaged in efforts to organize student dining workers, have agreed to terms for an election to decide whether the union will be given official College recognition. College President Phil Hanlon denied the initial request and referred the process to the National Labor Relations Board on Jan. 28.
This week, the men’s hockey team played three games, two against Princeton University — one home and one away — and one against No. 4 Quinnipiac University. The Big Green took care of business against Princeton, completing a season sweep, but fell to Quinnipiac for the second time this year.
Students participating in study abroad programs this winter received an “informed consent form” in September 2021, in which the Frank J. Guarini Institute for International Education stipulated various COVID-19 policies and guidelines. Enforcement and success of COVID-19 policies have varied across ongoing programs this winter — some students studying abroad have expressed no concerns with the COVID-19 guidelines, while others report confusion and frustration. Still others said they do not remember signing the form at all.
This year’s return to an in-person Winter Carnival themed “Mission: Winter Carnival — License to Chill” saw successful turnouts for activities like the polar bear plunge and Phi Delta Alpha’s Annual Chili Cook-Off, but dwindling interest in planning events and the building of the snow sculpture.
Businesses in Hanover have reacted to President Hanlon announcing his impending retirement from leadership at the College with optimism — hoping that a new administration will work to preserve and strengthen the relationship between the town and the College.
