1. I think I’m going to stay in, I’m not feeling too ragey tonight…
2. Good call! I can probably get some homework done, too.
3. On second thought, I don’t want to do too much work. If I’m staying in, I deserve to at least watch a movie!
4. But if I’m going to waste time and not even get any homework done, I might as well spend that time out, right?
5. Some of my friends are going out, too… I can watch a movie on any night.
6. NO. You’re exhausted and have work to do. Get your priorities straight.
7. *Insert burst of energy here*
8. Out I go.
My first two questions when I heard about the anonymous $100 million gift: 1. “Can we get that in dollar bills so I can roll around in it?” 2. “Did Phil Hanlon make it rain when he got the news?” But finally, I wondered who in the world donated $100 million and didn’t want to take credit for it?! Here are a few of my theories on who hooked Dartmouth up: 1. Dr. Seuss (Theodor Seuss Geisel ’25) I am anonymous donor Anonymous donor I am Would you like some big green (if you know what I mean) and ham? Would you like it here or there? Would you like it in a frat house, would you like it for Phil Hanlon’s spouse? Would you want it for DBA in the Box? Would you want it for your vox? As Dr. Seuss famously said, “unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” Yes, Dr. Seuss may have passed in 1991, but only a true wizard could rhyme “figgering” with “biggering.” Obviously his powers are out of this this world, so he could easily have found a way to hand over the $100 million to his alma… Read more »
With the new, less conspicuous, spread-out Dimensions schedule, prospie spotting (covered in depth in a recent post by Samantha Webster ’15) is now more along the lines of “’18s, they’re just like us” than akin to seeing a unicorn on campus. Regardless, there’s something magical about beings who have yet to drink the green Kool-Aid. With that in mind, here are some questions I would like to ask the ’18s. 1. What’s your favorite shade of green? We all know the best part about going to Dartmouth is that forest (aka “lone pine”) green is universally flattering. 2. What is Dartmouth’s mascot? No, really, I want to know. 3. What are you most excited for at college? Are you more excited for no parents or midnight mozz sticks and tenders? It’s a constant competition. After all, parents help with laundry and give much-needed (and oft-ignored-before-it’s-too-late) life advice. But tenders… 4. Which Boston suburb, Westchester town or California city do you hail from? More often than not, Dartmouth students call one of those geographic areas home. Boston may be wicked awesome, but NorCal is hella cool. New York slang is beyond my comprehension. 5. What are you going to do with your last summer that doesn’t… Read more »
1. You’re super excited to frolick on the Green once again.
2. As long as no one asks you to play Frisbee with them.
3. All of a sudden, there are sundresses galore and bare limbs every direction you turn.
4. And after months of perpetual winter, you remember that you don’t exactly love the heat either.
5. You realize that your life is a never-ending struggle to be at a comfortable temperature.
6. At most schools, the rain cools people down a bit.
7. But at Dartmouth, it starts snowing again.
8. And you’re back to square one.
