Texts From Last Night: Homecoming Edition

Well, it’s happened. The big fall weekend has come and gone, the fire has been touched, the miles have been run. And the late night texts have been sent. We’ve found some of your best texts amid the Homecoming frolicking and although the weekend is over, the texts will live on (even if you don’t remember them).

The perils of Late Night Collis.

415: Drunk for Dumplings, no DBA
415: Hey that rhymed

When does the networking end? (Hint: it doesn’t)

617: I’ll actually try to wingman though the fact that I shadowed his father for a day and am connected with him on linkedin might be hard to suppress
617: Just subtly punch me in the face if I seem like I’m about to bring it up 

The real meaning of anarchy.

Precaution taken to the next level.

DroCo is the only way to FoCo.

Base Camp Café Brings Nepali Cuisine to Hanover


Moving from the San Francisco Bay Area to Dartmouth was quite the change for me. I realized that I would soon feel temperatures below zero, and have to wear snow boots and a parka just to remember what warmth felt like. And I had to get used to a slightly more limited food scene. I always joke with friends from home that in Hanover, there’s the Chinese restaurant, the Thai restaurant and the Indian restaurant. But the Hanover restaurant scene just got a little more exciting with the addition of Base Camp Café, a Nepalese restaurant serving lunch and dinner every day. Just over two weeks ago, this joint set up shop in the basement of 3 Lebanon Street, replacing Salubre Trattoria.  Base Camp Café uses local, organic produce as often as possible and doesn’t deep fry any dishes. The restaurant avoids using artificial chemicals and colors and incorporates healthy fats, like olive and sesame oils, into its recipes. It also serves plenty of vegetarian and vegan options, flavor included. Manager Bhola Pandey researched obesity and nutrition in Boston for two years before opening up Café Momo in Manchester. Each dish has an almost scientific nutrient breakdown, consisting of 60… Read more »

Howe’s Little Free Libraries Draw Positive Feedback


Those of you who weren’t on campus in the summer may have noticed an extra dose of cute in Hanover – the Howe Library installed two Little Free Libraries over 14X. These structures invite passersby to “Take a book, leave a book,” offering a small break from a hectic day. The first Little Free Library was unveiled in front of Hanover’s Town Hall on Aug, 11 and the second, between the Hanover Inn and the Hop, was installed earlier this month. Since 2009, the Little Free Library movement has spread worldwide, spearheaded by an organization of the same name. According to the Little Free Library website, these free book exchanges aim to “promote literacy and the love of reading” and to “build a sense of community as we share skills, creativity and wisdom across generations.” As of Jan. 15, 15,000 Little Free Libraries were registered with the organization across at least 56 countries . The quaint structures in Hanover have been in the works for over a year, when Howe Library staff and trustees decided it would be a worthwhile project. Howe Library director Mary White said she was drawn to the idea by the opportunity for outreach it provided the library. “A lot of… Read more »

8 Feelings ’16s Have Post-14X

Displaying who are you.gif

1. Who are all these people?! Where did they come from?!

2. And why are there lines everywhere? I didn’t have to wait for even my KAF iced teas all summer.

3. On the other hand, non-summer KAF hours are a beautiful thing. On an unrelated note, I may never sleep again due to being over-caffeinated.


4. But I can’t get nachos at late night FoCo anymore…which is a problem for me.

5. Speaking of FoCo, I need to make a note to myself to avoid that place until the end of the term.

6. Why is it so colddd? It’s like the weather knows that 14X is over, so now it might as well be rainy and cloudy every day. At least it reflects my feelings about the summer being gone.


7. And on that note, thanks for the mere two weeks of an actual summer break, Dartmouth.

8. OH! Wait! It’s you!! I forgot about you but I like you! I guess it’s kind of nice to have other people back on campus too.
