On the eve of Election Day, President Barack Obama freely shared his views at a Get Out the Vote rally for Hillary Clinton, criticizing Republican nominee Donald Trump and emphasizing the need for Democratic votes up and down the ticket. The president’s comments, delivered to a packed Whittemore Center Arena at the University of New Hampshire, also highlighted the critical role of New Hampshire in the election, as the state’s voting results could tip both the U.S. Senate majority and the presidential race.

Located on the second floor of Robinson Hall (known as Robo), The Dartmouth’s offices constantly buzz with reporters typing stories, business staff selling advertisements, photographers editing shots and editors providing guidance and banter. As America’s oldest college newspaper (founded in 1799), we have undergone several changes over the past two centuries, and we continue to iterate upon and improve our practices every day. The D now prints daily, produces videos, runs a daily blog, and posts regularly to social media accounts (lately, we’ve been especially into Snapchat and Instagram @TheDartmouth). Our website drew over 183,000 unique visitors this past spring in addition to 1,100 daily print editions. With over a hundred students on staff, The Dartmouth is one of the largest organizations on campus.

Caitlin Barthelmes’ office space — tucked away on the third floor of Robinson Hall in the Student Wellness Center — can appear a little mysterious to the casual observer.

Coming from sunny Arizona to frigid cold of New Hampshire was more than a little intimidating as I prepared for my first term at Dartmouth. I’m a proud NARP (check out ‘A Blitz by Any Other Name’ in this issue for a translation), and I didn’t know what a Thermarest was until I read it on my freshmen trip packing list. Since then, I’ve gained a countless amount of fun adventure stories, random Dartmouth trivia, warm wool socks and even a Thermarest of my own.

As of this week, sophomores on campus have officially “crossed the X.” We’re halfway through our college careers, and it’s only up from here, right? Even though we’ve come this far, however, the road ahead seems a little more serious and a lot more uncertain. Are corporate financiers real people? Am I still pre-med? Should I have taken two classes this term? ‘Success’ in the time of sophomore summer, and at Dartmouth in general, is hard to pin down, but in the midst of it all, take some time to read this issue, cross a few items off your bucket list, and stop to consider other people, because it’s entirely possible that the calm and collected genius gliding along in the class you thought would be a layup is paddling just as furiously underneath the surface as everyone else.

Three weeks before graduation, Brazilian student Guilherme Ferraz ’14 was faced with an unthinkable setback. His employer-to-be had rescinded his job offer on the grounds that it was unable to sponsor his H1B visa process, the fees for which can often cost an employer upwards of $2,000. Without time to find an appropriate job or internship before his student visa ran out, Ferraz leftthe United States.
Forty-three students may be implicated in an academic dishonesty case after religion professor Randall Balmer found a discrepancy between the number of students digitally submitting answers to in-class questions and the number of students present in class on Oct. 30.
