Non-Greek Green Key Events

With Green Key upon us, campus is abuzz in anticipation of the wild, lively and largely unpredictable days ahead.

 It’s easy to get overwhelmed by the seemingly endless things to do, places to be and people to see. Even if the Greek scene isn’t for you, don’t worry because there are plenty of fun and entertaining things to do outside of Webster Avenue. Whether you’re interested in performing arts or just looking to escape the chaos (and maybe the rain), here are some events worth going to on campus this weekend. Collis Mainstage: Live Music Thursday May 15, 5-10 p.m. Stop by Collis Patio to catch the performances of Etna Old Time Association (5 p.m.), Reckless Breakfast (6:15 p.m.), Joe Marson & the Satisfied Mind (7:30 p.m.) and Tallahassee (8:45 p.m.) as they share their music all evening.

Anyone can come out to Collis Common Ground on Friday to compete for… Read more »

The Unfailing Guide to Finding a Table at Collis

Screen Shot 2014-05-12 at 9.26.33 PM

Sometimes you want eggs just badly enough that you’re willing to risk life and limb to find a table at Collis. We’ve all been there: the nervous glances scanning the room, the sinking feeling when you think you’ve spotted a table but someone’s coat is hanging just out of sight on one of the plastic chairs, the awkward walk/jog when trying to beat someone to the last patio table. How does one go about finding a spot amidst the madness? Here’s a flowchart that might help you out.

What You’ll Actually Find When Venturing Into Collis Basement


When Dartmouth students hear “Collis,” they tend to think of late night chicken tenders, DIY smoothies or stir-fry for dinner. There is so much more to our official student center than the café, however, and a variety of students have learned that an excursion downstairs can lead to a new favorite study spot or weekend hangout space. Whether you’re playing pool or hunting for school supplies, a multitude of rooms in Collis basement offer something for everyone.   General Open Area This is a popular eat-and-study space, with laptops frequently open next to lunches from upstairs. The openness and close proximity to a Green Print station make this a prime work area. One Wheelock Home to Kwame’s Open Mic on Wednesdays, One Wheelock’s vibe tends to be similar to that of an actual coffee shop, with free tea and coffee options adding to the effect. Board games are also available at the entrance, though I’ve never seen anyone actually play one. A cozy study spot with a slight hum to its atmosphere, this space can be a great spot to curl up with a textbook on a rainy day while drinking hazelnut coffee to keep you from falling asleep.

Appetizing April: A DDS Food Face-Off, Round 5

NBC via

The day is finally upon us — the final round of Appetizing April! It is time to pick the ultimate food item offered by Dartmouth Dining Services. Last week’s results: Chocolate Chip Cookies (FoCo) 65% > Smoothie (Collis) 35% Brie and Apple Sandwich (KAF) 67% > Chicken Tender Queso (Hop) 33% It is down to either FoCo’s Chocolate Chip Cookies or King Arthur Flour’s Brie and Apple Sandwich. The cookies have probably been large contributors to many a freshman 15. You were just trying to get some salad, but FoCo makes it so that in order to get to the greens, you have to pass by the oh-so tempting cookies and end up eating dessert while you browse, naturally. The brie and apple sandwich isn’t that much healthier and is another way to carbo-load. It’s time to pick our poison. Is the choice too difficult? Are you feeling indecisive? Do you dream of a way to have them both? How about trying the two favorites at once by having a chocolate chip cookie grilled cheese sandwich? Apparently some bloggers are a fan of this sweet and salty combo. I remain skeptical. New food combinations are all the rage (think the cronut… Read more »
