Drake is a prophet. We all know this. In some respects, though, he fails to describe my life well. I didn’t start in the six with my woes, but to his credit, the pace of my life has sped up considerably since starting college — probably not quite 0 to 100, but maybe from cruise control to slightly above the speed limit?
I still have a lot to learn, I’ve been around the world and I still can’t answer a simple question — how do I want to live my one and only life? I can’t tell you how to live, either. What I can do is share some stories and tell you what I’ve learned. With that, here are my 15 life lessons from a fifth-year ’15.
Julianna Docking '18 writes a letter with advice and hopes for her senior self.
Mary Liza writes a letter to her freshman self and reflects on how she's changed.
Life lesson — don’t try new things. A cat costume is always the safest bet.
As optimistic and gaffed as you feel, however, it’s probable that during your freshman year, like everyone else, you will make mistakes.
Freshmen just have a certain look in their eye that shouts “Hi I’m a ’19. Please be my friend.” Just in case they don’t know why they are still standing out, we have compiled a list of 19 ways to spot a freshman.
These are going to be the longest days and the shortest four years of your life. Welcome to Dartmouth, ’19s, you’ve got a lot to see and the clock is ticking.
Last year, students were exposed to a wide range of artistic projects, from the Hopkins Center’s “World War I Revisited” exhibit to a screening of the movie “The Hunting Ground” (2015) to “Merrily We Roll Along,” a student-directed spring musical.
Coming from sunny Arizona to frigid cold of New Hampshire was more than a little intimidating as I prepared for my first term at Dartmouth. I’m a proud NARP (check out ‘A Blitz by Any Other Name’ in this issue for a translation), and I didn’t know what a Thermarest was until I read it on my freshmen trip packing list.
Congratulations! Getting here can’t have been easy — from the college applications process to sticking out senior spring to literally winding your way through the woods on your drive to Dartmouth, it’s been a long road. Now that your freshman fall is around the corner, it’s time to get pumped for all the wonderful experiences ahead: new people, countless opportunities and an amazing academic experience are all near on the horizon.
Whether it’s overhyped is for you to decide, but no one can deny that the houses on campus are home to some of the best social events at the College — aside from Ryan’s epic dorm room rager (Rage in Peace, Ryan’s Party: 10/26/2013 — 10/27/2013) that I just made up — and are a huge part of Dartmouth’s rich history.
WADDUP ’19s. It is crazy to think that a new freshmen class will soon inherit the Dartmouth campus. I remember this trying time of having nothing to do but repeatedly stalk my roommate on Facebook, ponder a physical trip to Bed Bath and Beyond for the dorm essentials and occasionally flipping through the pages of our summer reading assignment. And I remember thinking a lot about food.
So it’s freshman fall, and you can’t go into Greek houses yet, but you’ve already completed all of your designated academic rigor time for the day. Whatever will you do? Netflix is sort of a played-out trope at this point, and you’ve exhausted your dorm party social calendar for the weekend. That means it’s time to get out and about and enjoy your true calling in Hanover: walking.
Over the past year, Dartmouth has ditched hard alcohol, appointed new administrators to numerous positions, announced a new model for residential life, cracked down on some Greek organizations and seen a surge in efforts to reform the Greek system.
Everyone has a slightly different preference for studying: crowded and chatty corridors, dead-silent Neo-Georgian libraries, ultra-modern science buildings, a grassy knoll or absolutely anywhere you can blast Sleigh Bells through your headphones, but it’s still worth trying out the full barrage of study spots the College has to offer.
Senior administrators at the College are in charge of the major decisions and initiatives that are responsible for shaping students’ experiences at Dartmouth. Due to recent levels of administrative turnover, keeping track of the various administrators can be difficult. These six administrators will directly impact on your time at the College.
Whatever the case, rest assured that your DOC Trip is going to provide you with the most exhilarating welcome to your home for the next four years.
Congratulations! In just a few short weeks, you’ll be getting meals with other freshmen in Collis, deciding which classes to take and learning all of our unique lingo. But before all of that really begins, you’ll have to move into your first college dorm. Which ones are the best? Where are they located? Where will the parties be? Will my room be small?
The Greek Leadership Council’s policy banning freshmen from attending Greek events that serve alcohol during the first six weeks of fall term is set to continue into its third year when the Class of 2019 arrives on campus this fall.
