On Sept. 24, a substantial number of Dartmouth community members attended services to celebrate the Jewish holiday Yom Kippur, a day of atonement marked by a 25-hour fast of no food or drink. According to Hillel executive director rabbi Seth Linfield, more than 200 people attended events surrounding Yom Kippur, which included a pre-fast meal and services the following day.

The light of several hundred candles was not nearly enough to emulate the brightness Buddy Teevens ’79 was to the world. But on Saturday night, a couple hours after football beat Lehigh University 34-17 in its home opener, approximately 400 mourners gathered for a candlelight vigil on the Green to honor Teevens, who died last week following injuries sustained in a bicycle accident in March.
I compiled stories and experiences from Dartmouth football players past and present to try to illustrate the impact that Coach Teevens had on all of his players. To describe an indescribable man with words is an impossible task, but I’m going to try my best. This is a letter to thank him for changing all of our lives.
In the fall of 1973, when Phillip J. Hanlon ’77 arrived in Hanover from his hometown of Gouverneur, New York for his first year as a Dartmouth student, he enrolled in English 5 with English professor Donald Pease. In the decades since, Hanlon’s struggles in that course have become a recurrent story in his speeches and throughout his 10 years as president of the College. The lesson highlights how Hanlon was able to overcome self-doubt and become a “transformative” leader, Pease said.
The district attorney’s office in El Paso County, Colorado dropped its three felony charges against Ahmir Braxton ’25. Braxton, who has since returned to campus, was previously charged in connection to a February 2023 armed robbery in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Students who walk into Class of 1953 Commons have surely noticed one major change: Near the front of the dining hall, in place of the former sandwich station, is now “The A9” station, which serves food free of all top nine allergens — dairy, egg, fish, peanuts, tree nuts, sesame, shellfish, soy and wheat. This station has been met with a variety of strong opinions, as well as some frustration that it was either unnecessary or insufficient for students whose dietary needs are still not met by the station. As an Editorial Board, we would like to express our view on the matter. Overall, we are excited that Dartmouth Dining has a food station that is more inclusive to students with food allergies, and we are impressed by the empathy and care that Dartmouth Dining puts into providing accommodations for students with dietary restrictions. However, we do have small suggestions to make the station, and Dartmouth Dining as a whole, generally more inclusive.
What is a university? English poet John Masefield said it “is a place where those who hate ignorance may strive to know.” Dartmouth says it is a “voice crying out into the wilderness.” But, in an age where universities have budgets larger than the GDPs — gross domestic product — of many small nations, I take a more practical approach: A university is what it spends money on.
Dartmouth Dining enacted policy changes at the beginning of fall term, restricting Green2Go at the Class of 1953 Commons and adjusting snack bar rules, according to Dartmouth Dining director Jon Plodzik. To get Green2Go at ’53 Commons, students must now give their Dartmouth IDs to reception staff and collect their food in under 15 minutes. In addition, snack bars no longer accept meal swipes — returning to the model last winter.
In collaboration with the online course provider Coursera, the Thayer School of Engineering recently unveiled its fully-online computer engineering master’s — or MEng:CE for short — program, which is the Ivy-League’s first online degree in the computer science engineering field.
College officials announced “a new plan” for housing on campus in a press release today, five days after President Sian Leah Beilock used her inauguration address to describe campus living as among “the biggest sources of stress in our community.”
It’s Week 3, but it’s not quite Red (Taylor’s Version) season yet, and the autumn leaves aren’t quite falling down like “pieces into place.” It feels as though we are on the precipice of the seasons turning from green to gold, or at least that’s how I am feeling about my senior year. Each morning feels just a little bit chillier, and planning for the future looms closer. There are still crowds of new unfamiliar faces in the line at Novack, and it’s hard not to think about people who have recently graduated and moved on and away. They were the ones that once stood in the shoes of the freshmen behind me, and with every week that passes, I am acutely aware that this is my third and final fall in Hanover.
Whether you’re partaking to rejuvenate your mind or strengthen your body, yoga has something for everyone. According to the American Osteopathic Association, yoga offers an extensive list of the physical and mental benefits, which range from increased flexibility to better cardiovascular health to improved mental health. Luckily, the Dartmouth community can try their hand at yoga both on and off campus. Two popular options are Mighty Yoga, which offers classes in the Town of Hanover, and the Student Wellness Center, which hosts free yoga sessions right on campus.
When the clock strikes 11 during an on-night, mobs of freshmen fill the streets of Dartmouth’s campus. Instead of heading to tails or to play pong in a fraternity basement, they flock to the Choates or the Fayesment. Even during the era of the frat ban, Dartmouth students still find a way to party.
With the match tied 8-8-2, mayhem broke loose. A well-placed return led to a tough dig. The ball popped into the air, high enough that a slam was inevitable. A paddle struck the ball with an undeniable velocity — but it was all for naught.
Arriving at Dartmouth for the first time garners both excitement and nerves. Understandably, the latter reigns supreme for many students who are not only coming to live in Hanover, but also in the United States, for the first time. The Class of 2027 is Dartmouth’s most geographically diverse in the College’s history, with students arriving from 75 different countries. This means that helping international students adjust culturally to Dartmouth is a growing concern. For international students, the International Student Pre-Orientation Program and International Student Mentoring Program attempt to facilitate a smooth transition to Dartmouth life and culture.
Just northeast of Hanover, a mere few hours away, lies New Hampshire’s famous range of “4,000 footers.” Referring to the 48 peaks in New Hampshire’s White Mountain range with elevations of 4,000 feet or higher, the 4,000 footers play a central role in one of the great American hiking challenges: known informally as “the 48.”
