Abbey Is Back on Monday

Abbey D'Agostino Rio.jpgThis past Saturday we noted that the Hanlon administration had been inexcusably remiss in not having Kyle Hendricks ‘12 back to Hanover. Perhaps in Phil’s cosmology, starting Game 7 of the Series and having the lowest ERA in baseball does not rank up there with algebraic combinatorics — but some of us think that it’s pretty cool nonetheless.

Equally unfortunate is the fact that Olympic hero Abbey D’Agostino ‘14 has not been invited to grace the Hanover Plain since her display of sportsmanship for the ages at this past summer’s Rio Olympics. Perhaps Provost Dever thinks that the Games and Abbey’s transcendent moment are less important than gender studies and 19th-century British literature. Who knows? We can’t ask Dever; she’s hardly around any more. (How’s the job search going, Carolyn?)

In any event, not everyone on campus is without an appreciation for heroism, and I was happy to learn that Abbey will be in town this coming Monday for the first time since the Olympics. She will be sharing her Christian testimony and her experience at the Games with the Dartmouth Fellowship of Christian Athletes. The Fellowship gets together Monday evenings at 8pm in Beta. The meeting is open to the campus and general public related to the College.

Welcome back, Abbey! You done the College proud.

    When Love Beckoned in 52nd Street

    D Afraid of a Little Competish

    How Regents Should Reign
    As Dartmouth alumni proceed through the legal hoops necessary to defuse a Board-packing plan—which put in unhappy desuetude an historic 1891 Agreement between alumni and the College guaranteeing a half-democratically-elected Board of Trustees—it strikes one…
