The last time Dartbeat interviewed Marcus Reid ’18, aka our own beloved Ill Fayze, he was killing it performing “McLaughlin Anthem” his freshman fall. I caught up with him this Green Key to reflect on his freshman year and find out what’s next for his music.
The Pitch, according to Neukom Digital Arts Leadership and Innovation Lab executive director Lorie Loeb, is an event that “provides a place where students, faculty and staff can pitch their big ideas” before a live audience and panel of judges.

Among the recent questionable trends reputed to increase men’s attractiveness (read: Dadbod), there is one that stands alone in its undeniable, universal, feminine appeal: the man bun.

Situation: You need something, you’ve procrastinated and you’re getting desperate. Maybe you’ve run out of toothpaste, and you just can’t ask your roommate yet again to borrow theirs. Perhaps your bike broke, and you’re dreading the walk from the BVAC to the LSC. Or, maybe you’ve eaten all the breakfast food that you store in your room, and you know you won’t be able to make it through your 9L without something in your stomach. And let’s face it – Topside is so expensive (a 6 oz. container of strawberries for $6.00 – really?!) and CVS is inconvenient (you’re really just too lazy to make that trek down Main Street).
Welcome back, Dartmouth! Whether you traveled home, stayed in Hanover or embarked on a trip over spring break, hopefully you enjoyed those weeks. Dartbeat asked around campus to discover other students’ experiences over break. From ASBs to a heavy dose of relaxation and everything in between, students had an amazing range of adventures.
