Allison Wang / The Dartmouth Senior Staff Dartmouth today seems like one of the most idyllic places on Earth, but during times of war in the last century, it saw thousands of students leave school in order to enlist, making it both a place of military training and a hotbed of protest. World War I significantly affected both Dartmouth's campus and students.
Alexandra Dalton / The Dartmouth March is the month of war, and while I've certainly never fought in a war, I have a very clear memory of the first time I punched someone.
'13 Guy: I can scissor with the best of them. '15 Girl: I just need to stop at Heorot and get a jacket. Government Professor: So he calls this "The Twilight Zone," like the TV show.
Learn a ton of languages! And we mean really learn, not just memorize the foreign sex phrases and pick-up lines in Urban Outfitters books. Watch every episode of "Law and Order: SVU" in order, if only to pick up on instances of subtle sexual tension between Stabler and Benson. Memorize an infinite amount of inane trivia to finally best that smug Ken Jennings (and Watson) on "Jeopardy." Do your laundry, vacuum and go to the gym.
Editor's Note: We welcome submissions from all members of the community both past and present who wish to write about defining experiences, moments or relationships during their time at Dartmouth.
Much like life, the sport of ice fishing involves long periods of tedium punctuated by brief spurts of excitement.
Dear Gardner, I made out with this girl from my floor a while back. We got FoCo the next day, but she hasn't been answering my texts for the past week.
I have yet to meet a Dartmouth student who can't find a way to keep busy. Regardless of course loads or extracurricular commitments, being at least a little bit in a rush a lot of the time seems to be the norm on this campus.
You have an important blitz to send. You write the blitz; it takes you 10 minutes. You look at the time.
You've got a huge history paper due tomorrow and you've been hunkered down in the stacks all Sunday.
Who puts the "dart" in Dartmouth? Why none other than our very own Track and Field team! While most of us are making a beeline for the nearest calorie-laden delicacy at the FoCo dessert counter, these fine folks are lacing up for a nice four-to-12-mile run. A typical day for a Track and Field athlete involves morning classes, practice at 3 p.m.
Alexandra Dalton / The Dartmouth I am from Arizona, one of only two states that finds it necessary to rebel against centralized government by refusing to accept that most ominous and threatening of specters: daylight savings time.
'15 Girl: I thought I was at my Freshman Formal, but I was really at a College-sponsored alumni event. '14 Girl on the Thursday of Winter Carnival: I just want to fast foward to the part of my night where I order EBA's. '16 Girl: I want to start a band called Dartmouth Weekend.
"The Color of Friendship," an intense reflection on race relations and Apartheid that offered a lot more than your average Disney Channel Original Move. "Fern Gully: The Last Rainforest." As obvious as the overwhelming environmental message was, we might have missed it as kids.
If you've been paying attention, you probably noticed students wearing Army combat uniforms while you were passing through FoCo, walking by the Green or going to the gym.
Dear Gardner and Kate, How can I let someone know that I'm interested in them without coming on too strong? Fiona Freshman '16 Gardner: You may not believe this, but there was a time not that long ago when this wasn't a problem at all.
A grey SUV rolls slowly past you on Tuck Mall. Crap. You know with just a glance that it's Safety and Security, and you're not sure if the College permits making snow angels on the street. Safety and Security often seems omnipresent on this campus and often at the worst times but many students, myself included, don't know a lot about what goes on behind the scenes.
If you saw last week's issue of The Mirror, you might remember reading that "natural selection has spent hundreds of years getting rid of people like your friend, who think it is a good idea to jump through the ice and into the water of a frozen pond," or that the Polar Bear Plunge is exclusively for "morons." Moderately passive aggressive challenge accepted, though I had already planned to do the plunge since I never had before, and my last opportunity as a Dartmouth undergraduate had finally arrived. When Friday morning finally came around, I lay in bed praying that impending blizzard would roll into town and cancel the event, subsequently depriving freshmen of new profile pictures and saving me from icy agony.
