Northern Stage celebrated the fifth year of its New Works Now play festival in January. This year, the premiere of a piece by a current Dartmouth student opened the festival.
At this point, many have heard the statistics: including the 2018 contingent of athletes, Dartmouth athletes will have earned nearly 150 spots on Winter Olympics teams. Athletes from Dartmouth have competed in every Winter Olympic Games since the launch of the modern games in 1924. This year, 14 athletes with ties to Dartmouth will compete in the 2018 Winter Olympics and one in the Paralympics. The College’s consistent role as a powerhouse in skiing has been well-documented, but lesser known is the history of the sport’s meteoric rise at Dartmouth, which ultimately led to a culture of excellency and pride that continues to make itself known with the consistent domination of winter sports by Dartmouth athletes today.
Last week, the College reported a total of 22,005 applications for the Class of 2022, marking a 9.8 percent increase in applications compared to last year. Applications for the Class of 2021 totaled 20,034.
As campus becomes more and more like the ice planet Hoth, Star Wars-themed events will dominate Winter Carnival, which is titled “Snow Wars: May The Frost Be With You.” New and old activities will include an official snow sculpture — back from a three year hiatus — and classics such as the human dogsled race, ice sculpture contest, polar bear plunge and 99-cent ski day.
For a leader, it can often be difficult to strike a balance between pushing group members toward growth and making everyone feel motivated and supported. Connor Lehan ’18 has managed to do both as the president of Casual Thursday. An economics major and computer science minor, Lehan has been a member of the student improv group Casual Thursday since his freshman fall, when he fell in love with improv as an outlet for channeling the wacky side of personality.
Before King Arthur Flour and Novack Café opened as dining options in Baker-Berry Library, only Baker existed on Dartmouth’s campus. Studio art and engineering professor Jack Wilson is an architect who previously worked in the College’s planning office. Wilson told the story of Baker-Berry’s conception, explaining that in the 1980s Baker library underwent a reconfiguration, adding Berry to the existing library. The special collections library, previously housed in Baker, moved to Webster Hall, now Rauner Special Collections Library. This allowed for more space to accommodate the merging of library computing services and the former Kiewit Computing Center building, located where Carson Hall now stands.
Former men’s soccer coach Chad Riley and the Class of 2018 shared a special connection. The ’18s were the first class Riley recruited as an assistant coach and the first group of players to enter a system with Riley entrenched at the helm after he became head coach in 2013. Three seniors — Matt Danilack ’18, Tyler Dowse ’18 and Wyatt Omsberg ’18 — started games from the get-go, and the Big Green won the Ivy League Championship every season they played on the team.

A wave of cold weather struck the East Coast last week, setting record low temperatures in New Hampshire and nearby states like Maine and Vermont. Despite this, Hanover town manager Julia Griffin said she did not believe that Hanover itself broke any previous low-temperature record.
Coming back to Hanover in the winter is like coming back to a different world: The entire campus is coated in a layer of beautiful snow, making everything glitter. Seeing the college looking this picturesque makes it even more shocking to travel to towns like Lebanon and White River Junction, where the slush has already turned gray, and white buildings with green shutters are replaced with boarded-up storefronts and weather-torn houses. Despite being located less than an hour away from Hanover, these towns are peppered with signs of poverty and neglect that are not often found in Hanover.
