Football improves to 5-0, defeating Sacred Heart University 29-26

(10/16/17 6:25am)

It was a day of nail-biting action at Campus Field in Fairfield, Connecticut as the Big Green took down out-of-league foe Scared Heart University 29-26. The game featured an abundance of twists and turns as Sacred Heart really seemed to control the pace of the game well at times. But in the end Jack Heneghan ’18 connected with Emory Thompson ’18 twice in the second half to complete yet another sizable comeback.


Football team pulls off historic Homecoming win against Yale University

(10/09/17 6:25am)

Unlike last week against the University of Pennsylvania and the previous week against Holy Cross University, Dartmouth didn’t wait until the last play of the game to beat Yale University on Saturday. This time they did it with 34 seconds remaining. Drew Hunnicutt ’19’s 15-yard touchdown catch completed the largest comeback in Dartmouth history to lead the Big Green over Yale 28-27.


Football clinches third win with final play touchdown

(10/02/17 6:25am)

Dartmouth football pulled out a win on the last play to defeat the co-defending Ivy League champion University of Pennsylvania, 16-13, at Franklin Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Friday night. With only three seconds left on 4th and goal, football head coach Buddy Teevens ’79 dialed up a run. Quarterback Jared Gerbino ’20 took the snap and punched it into the end zone as time expired, leading the Big Green to its third straight victory, improving to 3-0 on the season. With its first Ivy League win under its belt, along with a win against a College of the Holy Cross team that was then-ranked 25th in the FCS Coaches Poll, the Big Green seems to be poised for success going into the heart of its schedule. 


Men's soccer pulls out fifth straight win at home against Vermont

(09/25/17 5:25am)

The Big Green men’s soccer team has been lights-out of late, posting an impressive five straight wins. Its most recent 5-2 victory over the University of Vermont this past Saturday improved its season record to 5-2-0. Part of the reason for the team’s early success is first-year goalkeeper Christopher Palacios ’21. Even against the University of Massachusetts at Lowell, which was ranked 25th in the nation at the time, Palacios and the veteran backs of the Big Green were able to hold together a shutout 1-0 win.


Lyon: Fracking with Purpose

(03/03/15 12:36am)

Between 2005 and 2013, the oil and gas industry drilled around 82,000 hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, wells to extract shale gas across the country. The seemingly eminent shift to a country powered by natural gas has both active proponents and vocal detractors. Fracking is neither as good nor as bad as those on either side of the issue would have us believe. As more parties become invested in the debate, however, it becomes all the harder to cut through the stigma and whitewashing to get to the truth about fracking.












Through the Looking Glass: Lessons from the Pacific: A Winter in the Marshall Islands

(04/03/14 9:03pm)

On New Year’s Day, I traveled to the Marshall Islands as part of the Dartmouth Volunteer Teaching Program. We arrived on an atoll called Majuro — the nation’s capital — 30 miles long and a few hundred meters wide. As we drove down the sole paved road on the island from the one-room airport, I took in what would be my home for the next 10 weeks. Dilapidated houses encroached upon one another and clotheslines competed for sunlight. Dogs with no collars sprinted after our truck and then returned to their spot in the shade of a coconut tree. What hit me the most on that first day, though, were the smiles, waves and “yokwe” (hello in Marshallese) greetings we received from the people walking on the side of the road and sitting on the stoops of their homes. These extraordinary demonstrations of kindness and hospitality would become a constant over the course of my time there.
