Each year following the election of freshman officers, Class Council members representing each class year gather to divide the roughly $3,200 allotted to the organization from the endowment and the student services budget. In addition to a portion of this fund, each of the four class councils receive an additional $5,000 from the student activities fee charged as part of students' tuition at the start of Fall term. Together, the money is used for programming events during Homecoming weekend, Sophomore Summer Family Weekend and Senior Week.
As Student Assembly continues to implement initiatives such as the First-Year Mentoring program, the promotion of Sarner Underground, the inclusion of student senators from other campus organizations and the "Take a Professor to Lunch" program, students have expressed mixed opinions about the organization, its communication and the resource allocation of these programs.
The nature of sibling relationships is tricky you have to unconditionally love each other, but you can't help hating all those little quirks that only become visible after years of living with a person. Many siblings end up going to the same high school, which can either be a blessing or a curse. I absolutely loved having my sister at the same school as me we always hung out, grabbed lunch together and danced and sang on that long car ride to school. Other siblings avoid eye contact when their awkward older brother passes them in the hallway.
There's a rumor around campus that College officials and staff in Computing Services can track choice keywords relating to alcohol through our Blitz system. This explains the origins of fun iterations of many of these words, such as "cu++er," "m@sters," "k3gs" and the like.
Although it varies by term, between 8 and 9 percent of enrolled undergraduate students live off campus, according to Director of Undergraduate Housing Rachael Class-Giguere.
As a high school varsity athlete turned NARP, I am pretty much one of the least flexible people on this campus. My idea of stretching includes barely touching my toes and doing the classic sun stretch (that one where you lie down and pretend to be stretching your back).
In high school, most Dartmouth students participated in pretty much every activity possible, from surf club to the debate team to underwater basket weaving anything that we thought would help us get into college. This all begs the question of whether or not we should continue on this do-it-all trajectory in college.
Here at Dartmouth, we call our presidency "the Wheelock Succession," which makes it sounds like some sort of kingly, mystery-shrouded line passed down from generation to generation. While it is certainly true that much of the process of electing presidents for the College did and does remain quite secretive, with each presidential transition has come new changes that have had significant impacts on Dartmouth as a whole. And since we're now in the middle of a presidential search, let's take a look at the most recent members of the Wheelock Succession before its 18th president is selected.
Some of the Harvard University students involved in a cheating scandal last spring took a leave of absence instead of facing a possible one-year suspension, according to The New York Times. Over 100 students are currently being investigated for committing academic dishonesty on a take-home exam in a government course, making it the largest cheating scandal in Harvard's history. The course allowed for collaboration with other students, creating a gray area for Harvard officials investigating the incident, according to The Times. Many of the students involved in the incident are athletes, who have a maximum of four years of eligibility to play for Harvard, giving them the incentive to withdraw before losing one year. Harvard basketball star Kyle Casey is rumored to be under investigation in the cheating incident but neither the university nor Casey himself confirmed nor denied the accusations, according to The Times.
The pilot program designed by Peruvian native Jaime Bayona, the director of global health programs and practice at the Dartmouth Center for Health Care Delivery Science and a professor of community and family medicine at Geisel enabled five undergraduates and three medical students to visit non-governmental organizations, clinics and government organizations throughout Peru during July and the first week in August, according to Geisel student Anna Huh.
As the onset of a new academic year nears, members of the Dartmouth community will have to adjust to a newly implemented term calendar designed to improve the continuity of the Fall term academic experience, according to College Registrar Meredith Braz. The change, voted on by the Faculty of Arts and Sciences on May 9, has forced a number of College offices and activity organizers to adjust the timing of events.
A study by Morehouse College and Howard University economists concluded that black graduates of historically black colleges maintain an advantage in their professional lives over black graduates from other colleges, Inside Higher Education reported. Although a 2007 study conducted by Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology suggested that graduates from historically black colleges do not have this "career advantage," the more recent study used different data and methods, including information from the National Survey of Black Americans and the Duncan Socioeconomic Index, according to Inside Higher Ed. The new database includes information about both wages and employment in "high-prestige professions," statistics that are relevant due to the number of black graduates who give back to their communities by working in low-income urban environments, Inside Higher Ed reported.
Hirschfeld's election comes after the "near cataclysmic" controversial election of the current bishop, the Rt. Rev. Gene Robinson, in 2003 as the first openly gay Episcopal bishop, visiting religion professor and Episcopal priest Randall Balmer said. The national Episcopal Church was highly interested in Hirschfeld's election, and the people of New Hampshire may have wanted to elect a bishop "without making a statement," according to Balmer.
Professors across campus have mixed views about the significance of Green Key weekend, for which many students miss Thursday and Friday classes in favor of drinking. While they encouraged students to take advantage of the clear weather, many interviewed by The Dartmouth emphasized that they would not excuse students for missing class. Professors also expressed their expectations that students bear responsibility for their chosen activities over the weekend.
"On campus, I would want to just bro out in a frat basement because they're usually more of a guy scene than a girl scene." Amanda Spoto '14

"While I didn't attend Dartmouth, I can definitely see the sense of community and feel the camaraderie that Dartmouth offers. The Dartmouth experience for our daughter has been one to not only offer top-notch academics, but also one that offers an opportunity to explore, develop and better oneself." Carol Oniskey, mother of Micayla Oniskey '15
Traditional Chinese medicine can be integrated with Western medicine to reduce medication requirements, lessen side effects and make biomedicine more effective, Chinese medicine practitioner George Y.C. Wong said at the second Colloquium on Globalization of Traditional Chinese Medicine at the Class of 1978 Life Sciences Center on Thursday. Wong was the keynote speaker at the event that focused on interactions between health care practices of different countries.
Tuesday's six-hour lockout from access to Microsoft Online Services, which lasted from roughly 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., was caused by Microsoft's failure to accept a web certificate that had expired and was automatically updated, according to Vice President for Information Technology Ellen Waite-Franzen. The failure sparked both anger and ambivalence among students, some of whom had no access to their email for the duration of the outage and some of whom were relatively unaffected. The problem occurred when the certificate that authorized the College to access Blitz expired and was not immediately updated, preventing users from successfully logging into the system, Waite-Franzen said.
