We could all be flâneurs — the ambling, idling scholars of 19th century Paris. We could all soak in the rich, historic landscape of our frigid hamlet. Balzac called the activity the “gastronomy of the eye.” Baudelaire deemed them “botanists of the sidewalk.” They feasted upon the urban sweep as if it were a museum — the citizens its patrons and the architecture its pieces, curated and juxtaposed to maximize experience.
In this frightening post-Dimensions show landscape, there is a real demand for more parodies of popular songs set to Dartmouth lyrics. And even if there isn’t a real demand, we will draft the song anyway. \nSing to the tune of Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space” (2014).
“Dartmouth is a party school.” It’s hard to guess how many times I heard this phrase when I was accepted to Dartmouth, but if I had to make a approximation for the sake of this article, I’d guess it was somewhere in the thousands. I heard it from snarky adults who had never been north of the Mason-Dixon line. I heard it from friends at graduation parties. I heard it from concerned elderly people in the grocery store. Sometimes I even heard it from the small, scared voice inside of my head. Nevertheless, I lugged my straight-laced, sleep-loving, decidedly sober self all the way to New Hampshire and hoped for the best.
And there you have it — all the news from this past week. No need to watch the news, read CNN.com or open those Skimm daily news emails. In the meantime, there’s no rest for the weary. A hard-hitting — and completely qualified — reporter like myself is always on the job. I’d be nothing without my fanbase, so thanks for your support and love. I would like to dedicate this column to “Anonymous” who commented on last week’s column online. Your support means the world to me. And I will continue to produce this “kitchy” “drivel” with a “lack of substance” in your honor.
235 - The age of campus’s oldest building, the Webster Cottage.
$40 million - The cost of renovating the Hanover Inn.
What are the ugliest buildings on campus?
A challenging question. Are they the Choates? Berry Library?
You can become attached to a place very quickly. I endured quite a bit of abuse from friends about how often I studied in the 1902 room during my early terms at the College — and I’ll admit that I still like the place today.
I know there’s some Japanese show where they put large, exotic insects in glass jars in order to induce fights between them — this is the kind of thing some people find entertaining. I don’t find as much entertainment value in the spectacle, but I know how it feels to be an insect like that, trapped in others’ personal space.
This week, The Mirror took a deeper look at some of the architectural spaces that define this campus.
Year Built: 1890
Situated on a hill overlooking East Wheelock street, Bartlett Hall was originally not a classroom building, but a Young Men’s Christian Association building, or YMCA building.
Year Construction Began: 1771
While not technically a building, the Green forms the heart of Dartmouth’s campus.
Years Built: 1784-1791 (rebuilt in 1904 and 1935)
Dartmouth Hall was originally built in 1784.
Year Built: 1956
In response to the 1955 faculty committee’s assertion that Dartmouth’s existing dormitories looked like military barracks, the College built the Choates in an effort to create a more intimate learning community.
Year Built: 1901
This building was originally home to the College Club, a now-defunct eating group for students.
The Mirror polls students and community members about their happiest times at Dartmouth.
What's inside the utility tunnels of Dartmouth College? Videographer Sam Forstner '18 takes us for a tour.
Studying in Toulouse, France on a French language study program, staff photographer Kate Herrington '17 documented how American culture has infiltrated the city.
Three weeks before graduation, Brazilian student Guilherme Ferraz ’14 was faced with an unthinkable setback. His employer-to-be had rescinded his job offer on the grounds that it was unable to sponsor his H1B visa process, the fees for which can often cost an employer upwards of $2,000. Without time to find an appropriate job or internship before his student visa ran out, Ferraz had to leave the United States.
Devoid of sparklers, Anderson Cooper and Martinelli’s, New Year’s Eve 2014 was unlike any other for Lisa Luo ’15. Instead of watching the ball drop from the comfort of her living room in Boston, Lisa rang in the new year in a rickshaw hurtling through Beijing’s congested streets. The closed tin box pulled by a guy on a motorcycle made for a strange and claustrophobic celebration of the New Year. Luckily, the rickshaw had one small, plastic window for Lisa to gaze out.
