Spring has sprung and love is in the air. But be mindful should you chose to consummate your love in the East Wheelock, according to cluster Community Director Michael Lord.

Three roommates among All-Ivy winners

Ten Big Green student-athletes on winter sports teams received All-Ivy academic honors on March 22. The 80 men and women chosen for the award were selected from a pool of student-athletes that consisted of starters or key reserves on any officially recognized varsity team with 3.0 or better cumulative grade point averages. A trio of past and current roommates -- Cam Fortin '05 (squash), Mike Liddy '05 (basketball) and Sean Robinson '05 (swimming and diving) -- were among the honorees. Liddy said that living with Fortin and Robinson, all three members of Psi Upsilon fraternity, was a positive influence that helped steer him toward the academic All-Ivy distinction. "It's nice having roommates that are also athletes because they understand the demands of balancing academics and athletics too," Liddy said.

Campus celeb pumped for Homecoming

Jesus did it over 2,000 years ago. Tupac did it in 1997. Keggy's doing it at Homecoming. Keggy the Keg, Dartmouth's unofficial rogue mascot, will be resurrected at a major campus event this weekend, according to sources close to the giant beverage container. Jeffrey Wagner '06, who, along with the Dartmouth Jack-o-Lantern humor magazine, was left in charge of the caricature mascot, declined to comment regarding what event Keggy will appear at and on who will wear the costume in the absence of former Keggy Andrew Argeski '06, but promised that he would make "a big splash this weekend, particularly for the '08s who haven't seen him yet." Argeski, who has performed the role of Keggy since he first appeared at the 2003 Homecoming, is currently on the off-campus Environmental Studies program informally known as "The Stretch." Following his first appearance at last year's Homecoming game against the Columbia Lions, in which Keggy was helped onto the field by Safety and Security for an impromptu performance alongside the Dartmouth College Marching Band, Argeski found a dedicated following as he appeared at various campus sporting events. "I liked the way he united the student body and how people got behind him ... even when the team was losing," Wagner said.

Dartmouth and Princeton get defensive in 0-0 draw

The Dartmouth men's soccer squad (2-1-4 overall, 0-0-1 Ivy) battled the Princeton Tigers (4-2-2 overall, 0-0-1 Ivy) to a scoreless draw, in a contact-filled, defense-dominated double overtime thriller at Lourie-Love Field in New Jersey Saturday. After a season-opening loss to Cal State-Northridge, the Big Green has now extended its undefeated streak to six games. Saturday's game was marked by a rash of fouls -- Dartmouth registered 21 to Princeton's 25 -- and physical play in the game's most pivotal moments, most notably a 70th-minute tangle-up involving Princeton junior midfielder Ben Young and Dartmouth defender Oliver Harker-Smith '05. As Young surged toward the Dartmouth penalty box on a through ball, he was tripped by Smith, which resulted in a Big Green yellow card. Controversy arose when the referee determined the spot of the foul to be outside of the box.
