This year, Green Key saw a similar number of incidents involving Dartmouth and non-Dartmouth students compared to last year, and a lower number of non-Dartmouth student incidents compared to years prior, according to interim and associate director of Dartmouth Safety and Security Keysi Montás. In addition to the continuation of the wristband system, which was put in place last year, new safety measures such as water jersey barriers and clearer exit and entry points were implemented, Montás said.
Dartmouth’s graduate schools will not be left out of the College’s recently-announced $3 billion capital campaign, “The Call to Lead.” The campaign includes specific fundraising goals for Dartmouth’s graduate and professional schools that will provide financial support for their programs and initiatives. The Geisel School of Medicine, the Thayer School of Engineering and the Tuck School of Business and announced goals of $250 million for each of their campaigns. Before the campaign’s public launch, Geisel had already collected over $100 million and Tuck had collected over $132 million. The newly-named Frank J. Guarini School of Graduate and Advanced Studies set a campaign goal of $50 million and received a donation of an undisclosed amount from Frank J. Guarini ’46, according to dean of the Guarini School F. Jon Kull ’88.
The College’s “The Call to Lead: A Campaign for Dartmouth” capital campaign, announced to campus through email Friday night, seeks to raise $3 billion in donations by the end of 2022 to fund a series of projects. So far, the campaign has raised $1.5 billion from over 78,000 donors over the past four years.
The University Press of New England board of governors voted on Apr. 17 to dissolve the publishing consortium and wind down operations by December. Founded in 1970, the UPNE consortium included as many as 10 institutions, but for the last two years, it has been run by Dartmouth and Brandeis University. Both institutions indicated that the decrease in membership over the years made the press “financially unsustainable” to operate and that they will take independent control of their own imprints.
This past weekend, Dartmouth College Hillel celebrated the 20th anniversary of the Roth Center for Jewish Life, which opened in 1998 following a donation by Steven Roth ’62 TU’63.

I will be the first to laud the political activism that has burgeoned on Dartmouth’s campus in the last few months. It is deeply gratifying both on a personal and philosophical level that our community is engaging with important issues, including injustice, prejudice and sexual assault. As a bisexual woman of color, these issues are deeply personal to me, and I appreciate that they are being discussed.
Discussion over the closure of the Hanover Coutry Club was all but off the table at the Golf Course Advisory Committee’s public forum on Apr. 9. Instead, public policy professor Charles Wheelan ’88, who serves as the chair of the Golf Course Advisory Committee, spent most of the one-hour forum discussing the Golf Course Advisory Committee’s ideas for reconfiguring the course to make it financially viable.
In past years, the College’s annual “Take Back the Night” march only saw about a dozen people. This year on April 6, over 140 students participated and nearly all fraternity, sorority and gender-inclusive Greek houses closed their doors in solidarity with sexual assault survivors.
The Silkroad Ensemble was at its best during the encore of its performance last night at Spaulding Auditorium. Opening with a fiery solo from pipa player Wu Man, the piece turned into a rollicking caper which used every instrument in Silkroad’s arsenal, from the thumping tabla to the breathy shakuhachi. Founder and world-renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma, standing while he played, bobbed up and down with a smile on his face. In other words, it wasn’t your ordinary concert.
The New Hampshire House of Representatives passed House Bill 1264, which would modify the definitions of “resident” and “residence” and could potentially impact voting laws, on March 6. Voting predominantly on party lines, Republican representatives spearheaded the 171-144 vote, while Democratic members railed against the bill, calling it a de facto “poll tax.” On March 12, HB 1264 was introduced to the state Senate for debate.
It’s hard not to ask what the best film of 2017 was, given that the 90th Academy Awards are less than a week away. But if you’re like me, it’s also surprisingly difficult to settle on a definitive answer. About a year ago, I reviewed “Moonlight” and called it the rare, transcendent cinematic experience that I’m lucky to have even once a year. “Moonlight,” to be clear, was precisely that film for 2016. Yet I had no such similar experience in 2017.

Wander into the high-ceilinged quiet of Black Family Visual Arts Center this month and one will encounter SELF/PORTRAIT, an exhibition of photographs by students of Studio Art 29, “Photography I,” and other photography classes over the span of the past two years. Student Gallery Room 102 is washed grayscale, each of its walls displaying groups of three or four black and white film photographs. The common thread between the photos is portraiture — not every work has its artist as subject, but all concern a meditation on self. Curated by studio art professor Virginia Beahan and teaching assistant Josh Renaud ’17, the photographs come together as a cohesive response to the documentary “Faces Places,” a film screened at the Hopkins Center for the Arts on Jan. 12 and Jan. 19. “Faces Places” follows 89-year-old Agnès Varda, a creative force who spearheaded the French New Wave, and 33-year-old French photographer and muralist JR on their journey through the villages of France. JR and Varda interviewed and created portraits of locals; their resulting documentary is built on the humanity of these encounters and the friendship they build in their time with each other.
This Saturday, the Hopkins Center for the Arts will host “An Evening with Barry Jenkins,” an event that brings the renowned filmmaker to campus for two hours of film clips and discussions.
On Jan. 3, Freeform debuted the first two episodes of “grown-ish,” the highly-anticipated spin-off of ABC’s “black-ish.” “grown-ish” follows Zoey (Yara Shahidi), the eldest Johnson daughter, through her freshman year of college and journey into adulthood. The show is fresh, colorful and fun, featuring a diverse cast of characters and strong writing. “grown-ish” manages to build on the success of “black-ish” while asserting itself as distinct and worthy of anticipation. The show retains many of the core elements that allowed “black-ish” to rise as a critically-acclaimed sitcom on ABC. For example, “grown-ish” also stresses audience education, offering brief insights into character background and historical context, a practice which takes on new meaning as Zoey is tasked with learning who she is, where she comes from and how she wants to exist in the world.
