Growing up in the suburbs of Boston, I often woke up on spring mornings to the sound of pattering feet on roads. In the early weeks of February, that was the noise of the seasoned-veteran runners who knew that training for a 26.2 mile race started at least two months out. As time crept into March, chattering voices joined the pattering feet as the hobby-jogging first-timers figured it would be a good idea for them to start training as well. By April, the streets filled with all sorts of folk running along the same route, with the same goal — racing the Boston Marathon.

Global efforts to reduce carbon emissions have led to a restructuring of how we value the world around us, yet they highlight the major consequences of commodifying nature. The economic value engendered by the renewed emphasis on environmental, sustainable and governmental (ESG) investing is perhaps the most visible corruption of capitalism to date.
When I toured Dartmouth, I remember being fascinated by the D-Plan — what an interesting and innovative idea, I thought. However, as I write during my off-term, I am struck by the many, many downsides to Dartmouth’s venerated D-Plan. Impressively, it manages to make both social and academic life more stressful and difficult — two birds with one stone — while also representing the outcome of a remarkably sexist decision made in the 1970s.
Dartmouth football head coach Buddy Teevens ’79 is “experiencing many positive improvements” in his recovery from a bicycle accident last month, according to an April 18 Dartmouth Athletics press release from his wife, Kirsten.
On April 17, the Dartmouth College Republicans hosted activist Chloe Cole — an 18-year-old woman who de-transitioned and now advocates against gender-affirming healthcare for youth — and guest speaker Carrie Mendoza, a doctor for Advocate Health Care in Hazel Crest, Illinois.

Just when we all thought the sun was here to stay, this week got off to a gray and gloomy start. This past weekend let us have a brief taste of summer –– between river dips under fierce bouts of sun to running hurriedly inside to escape cool April showers, visions of summer are beginning to seem closer. If only the summer preview had lasted a bit longer, but alas, Hanover continues to jolt between hot and cold, reminding us that springtime here is nothing short of unpredictable.
This Sunday, after many falls, curse words and newly formed bruises on my body, I discovered I’m not nearly as good of a skier as I thought I was.
If you know me personally, then maybe you’ve heard me mention a certain guiding principle of mine. It’s not something I mention often, but it is one that I consistently adhere to. I try to let my actions speak just as loudly as my words, so the guiding principle is this: If I think of a compliment, then I voice it.
