At this year’s HackDartmouth, sleep was optional.
It’s not everyday that most of us find ourselves running through an unfamiliar forest in search of checkpoints. For most, the thought of having to navigate during a race without the use of a phone is a nightmare. Yet it’s precisely this combination of speedy decision-making skills, physical endurance and map interpretation abilities that is essential to orienteering, a navigation race that originated in Scandinavia in the late 19th century.
This past Sunday was far from a lazy one for Phil Claudy ’18. While most students were sleeping in, Claudy was racing in the IRONMAN Chattanooga Triathlon in Tennessee. He had never competed in a triathlon before, but now he was racing in a distance at the very highest level of the sport.

The College’s resident “corpse flower,” known as Morphy, is expected to bloom at the end of this week for the first time since July 2011. Housed in the greenhouse atop the Class of 1978 Life Sciences Center, the 13-year-old specimen of Amorphophallus titanum has only bloomed one other time throughout its life. The flower will bloom for two to three days.
Staci Mannella ’18 is one of the youngest members of the United States Paralympian Alpine National team. Mannella placed sixth at the Sochi Winter Olympics in 2014 and has been skiing since the age of four despite having been born with achromatopsia, a genetic visual acuity to three feet. At Dartmouth, Mannella is a member of the equestrian team, which won the Ivy League Championship in April. At the Ivy Championship, Mannella took first in the Intermediate Fences, fourth in the Open Fences Championship and sixth in Novice Flat. She sat down with Alyssa Mehra ’19 to discuss Olympic glory, balancing multiple winning teams and her plans for the future.
Among the most crucial components of the 2015 Ivy League-winning championship season was a roster laden with experienced senior players. It paved the way for Dartmouth’s greatest success in 19 years. But it’s for that same reason that 2016 poses so great of a challenge for the program. Ten of the 11 starters that made up one of the strongest defenses in the entire country left Hanover after the 2015 season. Another seven on offense departed as well, including Dalyn Williams ’16, one of the best quarterbacks in Big Green history. And so arises the question that will likely define this team’s season: how do you make up for such losses at every key point on the roster?

Faculty members are developing the iTarget project, an interdisciplinary biomedical research center, aided by a five-year, $12.45 million National Institutes of Health grant awarded to the College in May.
Let us set aside our misgivings about stereotypes for a moment and consider the archetypal Asian family. Labels for Asian parents, ranging from tiger mothers to kyoiku mamas, all describe the same authoritarian strictness. As the widespread perception goes, most Asian parents relentlessly drive an agenda of academic and extracurricular excellence for their children in hopes of setting them up for future success. By necessity, more creative endeavors are routinely shunned in favor of more time to study or practice a new instrument, and social development takes a back seat in the quest for higher SAT scores and Ivy League diplomas.
This past weekend, after an officer shot and killed a 23-year-old black man in Milwaukee on Saturday, unrest enveloped the city. This shooting comes as one of a wave of high profile police shootings this summer. As of mid-August, police have shot and killed close to 600 people, according to The Washington Post.
