Dartmouth's response to the swine flu outbreak was similar to steps taken by other institutions.

College flu response mirrored peers'

Tilman Dette / The Dartmouth Senior Staff Dartmouth's response to the recent swine flu outbreak -- evacuating students from the Language Study Abroad program in Mexico, isolating individuals with flu-like symptoms and sending a series of e-mails to campus about the situation -- mirrored steps taken at peer institutions. Although swine flu was now been found to be relatively mild, the College acted appropriately to combat what could have become a pandemic, Turco said, noting that health officials had no way of knowing 10 days ago how dangerous the virus might be. "A week and a half ago, we were hearing reports from Mexico that made it appear as if this wasn't your average influenza," he said. Some students interviewed by The Dartmouth have questioned whether the College overreacted to the threat. "I have no fear of swine flu," Zachary Lim '11 said in an e-mail.

Students rebuild following snow sculpture collapse

In the early morning hours of the night before Winter Carnival, dozens of students toiled under the glare of electric lamps, plastic buckets and snow shovels in hand, racing against time to rebuild the snow sculpture before the opening ceremony Thursday evening. This late night labor crew was organized by the Dartmouth Outing Club and the Snow Sculpture Committee after the south wall of the original snow sculpture, a scale model of Moosilauke Ravine Lodge, collapsed due to warm weather. With less than 24 hours before opening ceremonies, the Outing Club sent a mass e-mail to campus Wednesday evening soliciting ideas for a new sculpture that could be built overnight.
