Dartmouth may be renowned for its academic prowess, but that doesn’t mean its students don’t like to let loose every now and again. While there’s generally some sort of social scene that can be found on any night of the week, a few well-known events on campus have become Dartmouth traditions.
Almost every group on campus has its own ideas of what should be passed on to younger members. For many, it’s a way of preserving history. For others, it’s a fun way to share ridiculously unique items that won’t fit in a one-bedroom New York City apartment. For every group on campus, though, it’s a special way that upperclassmen can share their experiences with the underclassmen with whom they’ve made lasting memories.
With all of the hustle and bustle of your first few weeks on campus, it can be easy to skip out on quality time with your readings and problem sets. While you can always retreat to the isolation of your room or the comparatively spacious layout of your dorm’s common room, we’ve selected some of the best library study spots on campus where you can get work done away from any distractions. Finding a seat is up to you, but with this list in hand, you’ll never have to ask the difference between Berry 3 and the stacks.
Just because there’s no placement test for “Dartspeak” doesn’t mean that students of the College haven’t developed our own form of communication, and as with any language, Dartspeak cannot be mastered until one lives alongside those who speak it.
Moving to Dartmouth will require you to consider what is going to transfer to a new school with a new dress code and what you might have to leave behind. The capri army pants you wore on your first date in seventh grade may not be the hottest item in Hanover, but if they still fit, consider them for your flair drawer. To make the transition to Dartmouth a little easier, let’s start with a crucial question — what do we really wear at Dartmouth?

Feeling a shiver of terror creep up your spine? Glimpsing tiny, shadowy figures? You’re not alone. Every few solstices a throng of menacing creatures appears, seemingly overnight, on campus, and we are powerless to stop them. We turn our heads and drop our FoCo to go boxes in fear as we watch these beings take flight, zero in on their targets and descend. Cicadas, you ask. Wasps? Alums? No, friends, I’m talking about your parents.
As the only Dartmouth term with a reputation for lighter course loads and “ample” free time, sophomore summer has proven distinctive, but perhaps not in the ways that one might have so eagerly expected while cruising down the road to 14X. Faced with an almost unhealthy number of opportunities for procrastination and inspired by a new sense of durability that undoubtedly only serves to help us justify our sluggish work habits, many in the ’16 class have finally reached the end of what might be referred to as an eight-week “adjustment period.”
