Back to Class
Dean of the College Rebecca Biron will step down and return to teaching Spanish and comparative literature at the end of the academic year.

No Respect
At the faculty meeting held February 18, several students passed out a document calling for a vote of no confidence in President Phil Hanlon ’77.

New Energy
Consultants from Goldman Sachs are helping College officials explore options for a new power plant on campus.

Suspensions
Kappa Kappa Kappa has been issued a three-term suspension for multiple infractions of the campus hazing and alcohol policy. Sigma Phi Epsilon was suspended for winter term for violations of the alcohol policy while already on probation.

Bad Bug
Not surprisingly, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center reported the largest number of influenza cases during flu season since the winter of 2014-15.

Net Gains
Former pro goalkeeper Bo Oshoniyi has been named the new men’s soccer coach. The MLS veteran spent the past four years as head coach at East Tennessee State.

Class of Fire and Ice
English professors Donald Pease and James Dobson taught a winter course called “Game of Thrones: Re-imagining Medieval History as an Allegory of the Present.” 

Time’s Up
Only 28 percent of female undergrads said they felt Dartmouth would hold sexual assault offenders accountable, according to campus survey results released in January.

Word of the Month
Due to limited storage space, Baker-Berry Library is going to “deaccession” 59,000 books and journals. That means the volumes will be permanently removed from the library.

Still Waiting
President Hanlon indicated in a February email that investigations into allegations of misconduct involving three faculty members are nearly complete. “We will, therefore, soon move from the investigative stage to consideration of any disciplinary action, where appropriate,” he wrote.

Wearing It Out
Hopes for a new Guinness World Record were dashed when not enough fans showed up for the Dartmouth-Princeton men’s basketball game wearing tartan clothing. The official largest gathering of people wearing tartan stands at 1,146.

Up, Down, Across
Librarian Laura Braunstein co-constructed her first New York Times crossword puzzle, which ran last December. She caught the crossword-creating bug while chatting with Times puzzle constructor Andrew Kingsley ’16 when he was a student.

Revival?
For the first time since 2015, a larger-than-a-breadbox snow sculpture appeared on the Green for Winter Carnival. Inspired by a Star Wars-based “Snow Wars” theme, students carved a white Darth Vader helmet. It didn’t quite elicit memories of snow superstructures from the good old days, but it could be a start.
