Lorin Paley ’15 Chronicles Adventures in Outdoor Blog

If you’re looking for inspiration to get outdoors and enjoy the (finally) beautiful weather, you may want to check out the outdoor adventure blog “Raise the Bar.” The blog, created by Lorin Paley ’15, chronicles her involvement with outdoor advocacy, the Dartmouth Outing Club, mountain biking and more. The website, which Paley designed herself, also includes sections on her favorite hiking gear and her latest projects in Dartmouth’s woodshop. Paley, a self-proclaimed outdoor enthusiast, started blogging in 2010 to document her adventures as a professional telemark skier in high school. “I’d be traveling for weeks in and around Europe and on the road,” Paley said. “[The blog] was a way for me to keep in touch with my family and to keep my sponsors informed.” Now Paley blogs primarily about her work in outdoor advocacy, including her involvement in programs like Outdoor Idols and Outdoor Nation. Paley worked previously as an ambassador for Outdoor Nation, a non-profit that aims to connect millenials with the outdoors. “I would help create programs for getting youth together to talk about issues of barriers to entry to the outdoors,” she said. “We gave away grants to groups who came up with ideas and wanted… Read more »

2048: Dartmouth Edition

Screen Shot 2014-04-16 at 12.41.04 PM


Whether you’re roaming the library or just struggling to get through your 10A, it’s almost impossible to avoid  2048, the game that has taken our campus (and everywhere else) by storm. The game that has produced several spin-offs was created this March by 19-year-old Italian web developer Gabriele Cirulli. The goal of the original game is to match tiles in multiples of two in the hopes of getting to the number 2048. If you’ve never played, don’t start – it is an incredible timesuck and midterms aren’t going anywhere. But if you’re already far down the path of addiction, there’s no harm in checking out this Dartmouth-themed edition of the game. Instead of multiples of 2, the tiles feature the block Dartmouth “D,” a picture of Phil Hanlon and more.

Found or Lost a Fracket? Let Jacket Racket Know

There are few experiences more tragic than losing a fracket on a freezing cold night out. Luckily, three members of the Class of 2017 have devised a system to return frackets expediently to their rightful owners. Called Jacket Racket, the system will allow students to purchase tags for their frackets, each with a unique identification number. If someone finds a lost jacket, he or she can blitz Jacket Racket with the tag’s identification number. Then, Jacket Racket will return the jacket to its owner. An online platform will help facilitate the return process. The program was developed by Brad Geismar ’17, Jake Greenberg ’17 and Terren Klein ’17. Greenberg came up with the idea after his own jacket was stolen earlier in the year, along with those of many of his friends. “The prevailing notion was that no one was going around taking jackets out of malicious intent,” Greenberg said. “People were taking jackets because they wanted to keep warm.” Jacket Racket will serve as a centralized forum for returning lost jackets, rather than having students rely on hopeless Facebook posts or blitzes. Class pages on Facebook are the only viable way to find lost jackets currently, Klein said. Beta testing for the… Read more »
