The numbers jump off the first few pages: $8 billion in assets, $344 million in operating surplus, a presidential salary of nearly $1.2 million.

Two students stumble down Main Street one night in the fall of 2018. At the bright lights of the Irving Oil gas station, one collapses, having had too much to drink.

A Norwich, VT native, he attended Hanover High School before attending Columbia University to study political science. He worked in the intelligence services overseas before returning to academia, studying economics and environmental science at the London School of Economics and Stanford University.

Just this year, he published two papers, one on the relationship between climate change and violence and another on the causes of increased rainfall in the southeastern United States.
Between chalking their names on popular student thoroughfares, pinning posters around campus and talking with students, the candidates for Student Assembly president and vice-president have worked to communicate their ideas for student government to the Dartmouth community. Luke Cuomo ’20, Tim Holman ’20 and Sydney Johnson ’20 are running for SA president, and Ariela Kovary ’20 is the only candidate for vice-president. Cuomo and Kovary are the only candidates running jointly as president and vice president, respectively. At the moment, Kovary will most likely become SA vice president barring a successful write-in.

History came to life on Friday during the re-argument of Dartmouth College v. Woodward, the landmark 1819 Supreme Court case that preserved Dartmouth’s status as a private college and strengthened constitutional protections against state interference in contracts. Several hundred alumni and community members filled Alumni Hall for the event, which was part of the ongoing celebration of the 250th anniversary of the College’s founding.
The New Hampshire Senate has taken a major step toward paid family and medical leave in New Hampshire. The Granite Caregiving Act, a major priority of the new Democratic majority, passed on a party-line vote last week. The bill, symbolically called Senate Bill 1, would establish a statewide paid family and medical leave insurance program funded by a tax on employers.
The possibility of legalizing marijuana has reached New Hampshire, and its chances of success have never been higher.

The mental health crisis on college campuses across the nation has come under scrutiny. In a recent study focusing on the eight Ivy League schools, Dartmouth earned an “F” for its leave of absence policies in a new white paper — a paper that seeks to explain an issue and persuade readers of the authors’ philosophy — from the Ruderman Family Foundation, a private philanthropic foundation that advocates for disability rights. The white paper accuses the Ivy League as a whole of “failing to lead the sector of higher education in supporting students with mental health disabilities.”
The $70 million federal class action that the College faces has incited further action by Dartmouth community members.

In an organized show of support for the plaintiffs in the pending class action against Dartmouth, nearly 800 alumni, current undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, staff and other members of the Dartmouth community have signed a letter condemning “an institutional culture that minimizes and disregards sexual violence and gender harassment.”

Several high-profile races nationwide remain too close to call, including the Senate races in Arizona and Florida and the gubernatorial races in Florida and Georgia.
