Halloween was a big deal at my high school. People would prepare weeks in advance and come up with the most creative costumes. It was perhaps the most entertaining school day out of the whole year. One year, two friends dressed up as a toilet and a shower, and when you lifted the toilet seat there was candy! It took a lot of time and hard work to make the toilet seat and shower, but everybody loved it. Sadly, time is something we just don’t have at Dartmouth. These past few years, I’ve forgotten about my costume and tried to come up with something at the last minute, and have had to come up with costume in a matter of minutes. These are some simple, yet great, ideas for Halloween costumes…. Read more »
It’s that time of the term. The time when you cringe after seeing your Declining Balance Account balance flash across the Collis cash register after swiping for a brownie. How did it get so low? And with three weeks still to go, the better question is, how will you make those precious few digits stay above 0 until the end of the term? Fear not, DBA-deprived students, there are several courses of action to take:… Read more »
Ah, homecoming. A close runner-up to Dartmouth’s favorite big weekend, Green Key, homecoming is much colder and much more green, at least in spirit. It is so green that I have been playing the Alma Mater all day in an effort to get inspired. Not really, but it’s a nice image, right? To put it simply, homecoming happens every year and is when the worst class ever turns into…well, still the worst class ever, but also real Dartmouth students. … Read more »
You’ve seen them at the activity fair and on Facebook, but what exactly is the Dartmouth Ginger Student Coalition?
According to member Zachary Martinez ’13, the Dartmouth Ginger Student Coalition was founded “in order to foster the Ginger community on the Dartmouth College campus”.
The front of the newly-opened Black Family Visual Arts Center, located behind the Hopkins Center. The 105,000 square-foot center is sustainably designed, and includes classrooms, faculty offices, student artwork exhbitions, a 50-seat screening roat and a digital humanities media laboratory.
Greetings, Dartmouth! It’s that time of year again – the beginning of Fall term. Welcome back! Say hello to those friends you fell out of touch with during the year that you were off Fall/Winter and they were in Prague/Barcelona/somewhere else in the Spring. Discover that you have gotten a lot worse at pong after a term of not playing it. Realize that with the arrival of freshmen on campus, you now recognize 25 percent less of the students on campus than you did last year. Feel older, and closer to the inevitable day when you will be dumped unceremoniously into the real world, maybe with health insurance but maybe not (#Obama2012). Fall is a time for firsts. For freshmen, everything is new – how to order stir-fry at Collis, where to swipe their IDs at the gym, how to move around in the stacks without sounding like an elephant in heat. Now that they are actual students and not just the prospies that nobody wants to let into their fraternity basements, they have acquired the kind of “I-know-everything-and-this-is-my-house-now” swagger that only Fall term freshmen have. Don’t lie, you had it too. For sophomores, this is the time to decide… Read more »
