Classes of 1925 and 1930 to hold reunions

Along with the 50th class reunion scheduled this weekend, members of the Classes of 1925 and 1930 will also be returning to Hanover to reminisce about their time at the College. "The Class of 1925 is going to break attendance records this year," Senior Associate Director of Alumni Relations David Orr said. "They are going to be 60 in total, including 14 classmates, wives and next of kin," Orr said. The previous record was 45 total attendants, including 12 classmates, according to Orr. "The main thing is trying to get people to come because of their age," said Carolyn McDonough, who is organizing the Class of 1925 reunion. "They are all either 90, 91 or 92.


College, town prepare for Green Key

With Green Key Weekend upon us, the College and the town of Hanover have been preparing for an expected increase in activities and large inflow of people. According to Rebel Roberts, Safety and Security crime prevention officer, there is often a significant increase in the numbers of people on campus. "It depends on what's happening on campus and on other variables such as the weather and what's going on at other campuses," Roberts said. During Green Key there will be an increase in the number of Safety and Security personnel. "Student Activity organizations ask for personnel for their special events so we will have additional personnel available for Green Key," Roberts said. Safety and Security also takes other precautions for Green Key, including posting bulletins in residential clusters explaining the dangers that often accompany a large weekend. "We usually have an increase in incidents," Roberts said. Two years ago, Safety and Security reported eleven cases of inebriety, five of alcohol possession by a minor and three cases of disorderly conduct. Last year, ........dont have these numbers yet b/c safety and security hasnt gotten back to me. The Hanover Police Department also takes certain precautions for Green Key.

Task force examines WDCR

A faculty and student task force is currently evaluating the purpose and future format of WDCR, the College's AM radio station. At a meeting yesterday, task force members discussed possible changes to the radio station, including a switch to an all-news format. Cara Abercrombie '97, a former WDCR Disc Jockey, said the task force discussed a number of long and short-term goals for the radio station including increasing the station's visibility on campus, encouraging greater student participation and emphasizing the broadcast journalism and career aspects of the station. "It was really productive and I think [the task force] will have a lot to work with when they meet again in the spring," she said. The task force was created in response to a conflict that erupted at the end of January when WDCR's programming director, Pammela Quinn '95, resigned. Quinn said she left because Station Manager Phil Augur began to make decisions about the future of the station without consulting other station directors.

Students and Hanover kids: a winning team

Down by one point with five seconds left on the clock, the Hanover Middle School Basketball Gold B-Team entered the court poised to score. But after the referee failed to call a blatantly obvious foul and the team lost the game, the seventh and eighth grade girls headed to their coaches, two Dartmouth seniors, for solace. Brian Kurlander '95 and Kieran McNulty '95 have been coaching Hanover's Gold basketball team since last November. Kurlander said a key element is making sure the young players have a good time. "We have to keep it fun," said Kurlander.

CS profs like new home

Computer science faculty and students are still buzzing with excitement over their one-year-old home: the Sudikoff Computer Laboratory, on Maynard Street across from the old Mary Hitchcock Memorial Hospital. The building is home to classrooms and offices for professors, along with computer labs that have some of the most advanced technology on campus. Chair of the Computer Science Department Robert Drysdale said he believes Sudikoff's construction "has increased the availability of much better machines." Sudikoff "is a huge step for both faculty and students," Drysdale said. The building's first floor consists of classrooms and computer labs with dozens of state-of-the-art workstations, like 20 Sun workstations and 15 Digital Alpha workstations. One of the highlights of the building is the Dartmouth Experimental Visualization Laboratory, where research and development of multimedia technology is conducted. The second and third floors are divided into faculty and graduate student offices. "It is great to have the offices mixed.

Skiway improves lifts, snow making

The Dartmouth Skiway, coming off a very successful past year, has made several improvements for the upcoming ski season. The Skiway enhanced the quadruple chair lift installed last year and purchased all new rental equipment for the 1994-95 season, a Skiway spokesperson said. The Skiway has also improved its snow making capabilities and can now cover 60 percent of the mountain with natural snow. But the spokesperson said it is still too warm to make snow and the Skiway is not planning to open until the middle of December. Last year Hanover received more than six feet of snow, providing the Skiway some of its best conditions in years. Two years ago the Skiway, which features 16 trails and three lifts, turned its first profit since 1985.
