Engineering and Computer Science Center opens after two-year construction period

(04/01/22 9:10am)

In March, the College unveiled the new Engineering and Computer Science Center, a 160,000 square foot complex located at the end of Tuck Drive, to positive reactions from students and faculty. The $200 million building, which began construction in October 2019, was designed by the HGA architecture firm and funded entirely by donations. Dedication of the building is scheduled for this spring.



Not-So-Picture Perfect Spring Breaks

(03/30/22 6:20am)

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).




Students Face Obstacles Navigating Dick’s House Counseling and Health Services

(03/09/22 7:35am)

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.



College plans wide-scale dormitory renovations

(03/01/22 10:10am)

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. 





One Spring at a Time: A Look at the Lives of Dartmouth’s Pro Skiers

(02/23/22 7:25am)

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.

(02/22/22 10:20am)

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. 



COVID-19 guidelines and enforcement vary on winter study abroad programs

(02/18/22 10:15am)

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.





FFB to remain closed until indoor mask mandate is lifted

(02/10/22 10:15am)

The open study area on the first floor of Berry Library, known to most students as FFB, has been closed since the end of the fall term. According to a page on the library’s website last updated on Jan. 12, FFB will remain closed until the College lifts its indoor mask mandate. A popular study spot, FFB’s prolonged closure has stoked frustration from students.
