Alternative Social Spaces: An Attempt at Inclusion?

(11/10/21 7:05am)

With about 60% of Dartmouth’s student population involved in Greek life, the prevalence of Greek life on campus culture is undeniable. Though the Greek system has been credited with fostering community and livening Dartmouth’s party culture, some have criticized it for exacerbating exclusivity, especially on the basis of gender identity, race and socioeconomic status.


COVID-19 Confusion

(11/10/21 7:20am)

After a week of fraternity events shutting down and students obsessively checking the COVID-19 Dashboard, it seems fitting that I virtually raised my hand to write about this topic at the hastily-moved-to-Zoom Mirror story assignment meeting. Inevitably, COVID-19 has made its way back to Dartmouth’s campus — there have been a total of 26 new cases in the past seven days, including 12 undergraduate students. 


An Ode to Librex: the App you Love to Hate to Love

(11/10/21 7:15am)

Every day on Librex is a new day: a few Tuesdays ago, the only topic of discussion was — as you might guess — it being Tuesday. We’ve now moved into 403 discourse, where all Librex users and abusers have (rather mystifyingly) given their thoughts on people who live in rooms with the number 403. Gone are the constant rush posts of yester-week, nostalgic artifacts of a bygone era; here to stay are self-therapy posts and 4 a.m. M4F’s (for non-users, this implies that the male poster (M) is looking ‘4’ a female). 


A Step Back in Time at the Nugget

(11/10/21 7:10am)

Tucked in the middle of bustling Main Street is one of Hanover’s hidden gems: the Nugget, a cozy brick movie theater that has been serving the town since 1916. In the age of streaming services and COVID-19, the role of the Nugget and other small-town cinemas has changed considerably. Still, over a hundred years after its opening, the theater is still operating and hosting a steady stream of moviegoers.


Editors’ Note

(11/10/21 7:00am)

We’re not going to sugarcoat it: Week 9 is tough. Daylight savings means that the sun sets before 2As are even over — and in our final weeks of the term, it’s likely we’re all leaving the library well past the last flicker of daylight (unless you’ve pulled an all-nighter, but well, then you’ve got bigger issues). Your professors are likely scrambling to finish the course curriculum before the 10-week mark, and it’s possible that you’ve found yourself over a month behind on textbook readings that you’ve just discovered will, in fact, be on the final.



Club athletes, gym users voice frustrations with inconsistent, overly stringent enforcement of mask mandate

(11/09/21 10:10am)

On Nov. 5, interim director of athletics and recreation Peter Roby sent a campus-wide email announcing that, due to gym users’ “non-compliance” with the College’s indoor mask mandate and “rude, inappropriate behavior” toward gym staff, Alumni Gym would once again be closed to regular gym users from Nov. 8 to Nov. 9. This second closure of the College’s only gym open to non-varsity students, coupled with the recent suspension of at least one club athletics team due to mask non-compliance, has raised questions about inconsistencies in the College’s mask policies, which exempt varsity teams from wearing masks during practice and games.




COVID-19 update: Kotz deems College’s COVID-19 handling this fall ‘generally a success’

(11/11/21 10:05am)

At the start of fall, the College adopted an indoor mask mandate, required most students and faculty and staff members to be vaccinated and pushed for weekly testing. This term has seen relatively low case counts — with a “blip” toward the end of the term, according to interim provost David Kotz — and some closures of the gym facilities.



Former trustee Leon Black ’73 countersues former Russian model

(11/09/21 10:05am)

New developments have come to light in the legal proceedings surrounding former trustee Leon Black ’73 and former Russian model Guzel Ganieva. On Oct. 28, Black filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York against Ganieva and her law firm, Wigdor LLP, alleging racketeering, defamation and extortion. 


‘Poor Clare’ shines light on the complications of diversity in theater

(11/09/21 7:10am)

Diversity in theater has long been a topic of controversy, confusion and complications — and the Dartmouth theater department is no exception. As a college, Dartmouth has come a long way in terms of diversity, but — as the recent staged reading of the play “Poor Clare” demonstrates — what diversity looks like and how to achieve it is no simple task. 


Green To Go: Carpenter and Main serves Vermont on a plate

(11/09/21 7:00am)

This past weekend, I crossed the Connecticut River and visited the town of Norwich. A friend told me about a great restaurant there called Carpenter and Main. The fact that Bruce MacLeod, chef and owner of the restaurant, graduated from Dartmouth in 1984 piqued my interest, so I eagerly called the restaurant to make my reservation. 




Men’s basketball to open season on the road at Boston College and Georgetown

(11/08/21 7:15am)

On Nov. 9, Dartmouth’s men’s basketball team will take the floor at Boston College to start its season. The Big Green has not played a game since the 2019-20 season, when the team posted a record of 12-17 and placed sixth in the Ivy League. The 20-man roster features experienced players such as graduate student Brendan Barry ’20 and fifth year Aaryn Rai ’21, along with nine players who have never played a collegiate basketball game.


From the Bleachers: Chaos across college football

(11/08/21 7:05am)

A few weeks ago, I sat in the stacks of the Dartmouth library, scrolling aimlessly through YouTube videos in hopes of finding anything remotely interesting to prevent me from having to write my three discussion posts. Fortunately, I stumbled upon a video chronicling the 2007 college football season, the “craziest college football season of all time” and the “year of the upset.” The University of Michigan lost to Appalachian State University. No. 1 University of Southern California lost to Stanford University, a 41-point home favorite. The University of South Florida was ranked No. 2 overall at one point. Harvard University won the Ivy League championship. It was all chaos.


Dartmouth football impresses in 31-7 rout of No. 16 Princeton

(11/08/21 7:20am)

Dartmouth football faced off with No. 16 Princeton University on Friday night, marking the 100th meeting between the two programs. The Big Green dominated in every phase of the game, notching a 31-7 victory — arguably the team’s most impressive of the year — and improving its record to 7-1. Dartmouth now stands tied with Princeton atop the Ivy League standings with two games to play.
