When I was a boy, before I moved to the land of brownstones and apartment buildings, I used to spend warm afternoons crouched low in my backyard with a plastic cup. I would turn over flagstones, comb through dandelions and pansies and get dirt under my fingernails clawing through soil looking for bugs to put in my cup. Ants were easy to spot and catch, and Rolie Polies were effortlessly trapped between two fingers. However, the find that I relished most was the earthworm. I loved to see them squirm around in the bottom of my cup, leaking goo from their severed bodies (my bad).
This year, the Festival is being held to raise money for Dartmouth's chapter of Habitat for Humanity. The funds raised from a silent auction, T-shirt sales and donations will help the student-organized group build a house in Lebanon, N.H., this summer.
Before Christopher Columbus died, he left instructions for his epitaph. The controversial explorer wanted his body to be buried under a stone engraved with the words "Let me not be confused forever." However, to this day, it seems that we are all pretty confused by Columbus, and confused in general for that matter -- especially here at Dartmouth.
Recently, campus has been a hot-bed of issues. A left-of-center write-in candidate was chosen to replace our notoriously conservative lame duck; outraged students organized and skipped class on Monday to protest against the treatment of immigrants in America; even more students slept in to raise awareness about Sunday night drinking on Webster Avenue; over 150 students visited Dick's house with conjunctivitis ("the junk"); and countless others were kept inside, whooping the pertussis out of their lungs.
Thomas Cormen leans back in his chair, crossing his arms over his chest as we talk. From time to time he looks to the ceiling of his office through his thin-rimmed glasses, searching for the right words. "Is it a science? I think it's maybe an art," he says when I ask him about writing.
Dartmouth Medical School published a study in April's issue of the American Journal of Preventative Medicine linking ownership of alcohol-branded merchandise (ABM) to experimentation with alcohol among 10 to 14 year olds. Basically, middle-school students who own t-shirts, baseball caps and other items bearing the names of alcohol companies were found more likely to have experimented with drinking.
We were on the number four train heading uptown north of Union Square when a sleeping homeless man at the end of the car rolled on his side, removed his penis from his pants and started to urinate on the floor of the train. My friends and I, 16 at the time, were surprised, but even as the amber wave raced toward us, we remained calm in our seats. Our only reaction was gently tucking our feet out of harms way.
Last Fall term, the Hopkins Center piloted a program to allow Dartmouth students who perform in choral, instrumental and dance ensembles to provide professors and staff members with complimentary tickets to their performances at the Hop. This spring, the program is now offering two free tickets and access to main-stage theater groups.
This week Hanover will be injected with the vibrant sounds of son jarocho, the traditional music of the Mexican Caribbean. The Jarocho Festival will feature ensembles Son de Madera and Los Cojolites, and will open on Thursday, March 30.
On Saturday, thousands crowded into Thompson Arena to watch the Dartmouth men's hockey team battle Princeton. I was eager to find a seat among the mob clad in green and white, and nervous that a Safety and Security officer might discover the tennis ball that was taped to the small of my back.
Here at Dartmouth, people don't talk too often about local bands. In fact, I can only remember one time when my friends and I went to a concert and that was just because we didn't realize that Free Guinness at AD involved music. When I found out that I was to write about campus bands, I skeptically began a journey around campus that opened my eyes to an entire culture that I didn't know existed. Over the past few days, I was able to meet three campus bands, Reaction Speaks, Rightly Guided Thieves and Filligar, each rife with talent and very exciting to be around.
