New Hampshire residents using private wells, especially households with pregnant women or infants, should be attentive to the possibility of arsenic contamination. On Aug. 22, researchers at the Geisel School of Medicine published their findings on the effect of arsenic exposure on infants’ gut microbiomes, the microbes and bacteria occupying the gut. The study found that infants’ gut microbiomes shift after arsenic exposure, leading to potential health risks.

Dear Class of 2022,
Dartmouth is a school grounded in its traditions. Known for having the smallest student population among the Ivies, many students insist that this long-held fact is key to maintaining the College’s unique charm. Last August, College President Phil Hanlon created a task force to explore the possibility of expanding the size of the undergraduate student body. The announcement was met with disapproval from students who felt that Dartmouth’s close-knit student population was key to its appeal.
The Class of ’53 Commons, Dartmouth’s major dining hall, is a familiar setting for most students. From throwing as much food as possible in a to-go container during finals week to enjoying a reunion meal with friends after a long off term, the dining hall has served as the venue for countless student interactions over the years since it opened. While students may be used to the seating and the food options, few students have seen the inner workings of the dining hall, which produces thousands of meals for a variety of dining venues across campus.
Dartmouth undergraduates are innovating surgical procedures, interviewing the Congressional Hispanic Caucus and investigating Dartmouth’s historical relationship with queer communities on campus. These are only some of the exciting ways students have engaged in undergraduate research. Colleges often label themselves as liberal arts colleges or research universities, but Dartmouth resides in the middle ground of these two categories. Dartmouth values undergraduate research highly, allocating millions from the endowment and current-use funding annually to supporting student projects.
Ask any Dartmouth tour guide, and they’ll tell you: 60 percent of Dartmouth students study abroad once, 30 percent study abroad twice and 10 percent study abroad three times or more. But why is this the case? Why is Dartmouth first in the Ivy League for study abroad participation?
James Nachtwey ’70 has had a career that has taken him around the world, from Lebanon, to Ireland, to South Africa, to the former Soviet Union. Since he became a conflict photographer in 1981, Nachtwey has won the Overseas Press Club’s Robert Capa Gold Medal five times, the World Press Photo award twice and the 2007 TED prize. He worked with the Bang Bang Club — four South African photographers who documented the end of apartheid in the early ’90s. In 2001, a documentary based on his career called “War Photographer” was released. The documentary was nominated for an Academy Award. The inspiration for his career, however, began at Dartmouth, as the civil rights movement and anti-Vietnam War sentiment hit their fever pitch. These events, as well as his discovery of art history, would prove instrumental in helping Nachtwey become the world-renowned photographer he is today.
