Seven female science students have filed a $70 million class action lawsuit against Dartmouth College, saying they and dozens of others were sexually harassed and assaulted by three tenured professors who have since left the Ivy League institution. Read this morning’s full story here. The complaint is below.
After having a bit of a diva moment/being a little bit camera-shy, Dartmouth’s corpse flower, Morphy, officially opened this afternoon. Hooray! Blessed be the stink.
As a result, Dartmouth College Life Sciences Greenhouse will be open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, and on Monday, 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.
If you can’t make it, you can at least watch the live cam here.
Although the Dartmouth Colleges Life Sciences Greenhouse said Morphy was starting to open earlier today, staff just announced that the corpse flower has yet to open. Le sigh. STOP TOYING WITH US, MORPHY.
UPDATE: MORPHY YOU ARE KILLING US

The Dartmouth College Life Sciences Greenhouse reports that Morphy started to open this afternoon!
Once Morphy is fully open, which takes a couple hours, it’s expected to close again within a few days. The greenhouse has posted extended hours and will be open until 7 tonight, Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m.
Breaking Morphy news: Dartmouth’s corpse flower could bloom as early as Wednesday; greenhouse posts extended hours
As we reported last week, Morphy is surprising a lot of folks by blooming again rather quickly after 2016. (Typically, corpse flowers bloom every seven or eight years.)
And now the folks at the Dartmouth College Life Sciences Greenhouse say that Morphy could bloom as early as tonight, if not tomorrow, and they have posted extended hours!
Here’s the Morphy livestream. If you go, share your photos with us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a chance to be featured on the site!
UPDATE AT 4:45 P.M.:
Tomorrow is another day!
