Each week, Dartbeat asks a group of musically inclined students to recommend their favorite songs of the week according to a particular theme. This week we focus on songs to help dance away the winter blues. Even though spring is here, the winter seems to want to hang around, so put these songs on whenever the weather gets you down. Enjoy!
Lunch dates: new term = full iCal
'18: "Spring is finally here!!! So excited!!!” *walks outside* “Aaaaand it's snowing.”
Brown University:Brown’s Engaged Scholars program, which aims to combine academics with community engagement, is undergoing plans for expansion starting in fall 2015, according to The Brown Daily Herald. This year will see the addition of five more concentrations — including business, entrepreneurship and organizations and contemplative studies — as well as a new assistant director to run the program In the future, staff working on development of the program hope to further bridge the gap between what students learn in the classroom to real world experience through requirements, such as 250 hours on a community involvement project.
I would really like to believe that as our first year at the College comes to a hurried close (yikes!), us ’18s have pretty much figured it out. We’ve got the lingo down, most of us can play a decent game of pong and we all own at least one article of Phil Hanlon paraphernalia. But I’ve found that beyond Lou’s, Stinson’s and CVS — also RIP College Supplies Store — most of us have no idea what else there is off-campus. I just found out that there’s a Subway in Hanover. When I asked a fellow ’18 if he had ever seen the Subway, he legitimately thought I was talking about an underground train system. What’s arguably even sadder than that is that most of us have never visited Hanover’s poster store, IDVD and Poster, which has a few unexpectedly great items.
Check out this retro advert from April 1990 enticing readers to subscribe to The Dartmouth. I’m not sure if I am grateful or upset that we don’t do this anymore. The caption reads, “Warning: the Surgeon General has determined that smoking is hazardous to your health, but so is sitting naked on your Porsche while it’s parked on Webster Ave.”
Mar. 27, 10:24 p.m., Observatory Road: Safety and Security officers received an anonymous report of a suspicious vehicle on Observatory Road. The vehicle reportedly stopped on the road and asked an individual if they needed a lift. The individual declined, and the vehicle left the area. A report was then filed for the vehicle’s suspicious activity.
Introducing Cameron Carpenter, "perhaps the only person in the world who can change the organ."
Welcome back, Dartmouth! Whether you traveled home, stayed in Hanover or embarked on a trip over spring break, hopefully you enjoyed those weeks. Dartbeat asked around campus to discover other students’ experiences over break. From ASBs to a heavy dose of relaxation and everything in between, students had an amazing range of adventures.
April Fools' Day is upon us again, and Dartbeat has put together a few ways to finally establish yourself as an evil mastermind — the ultimate prankster. Of course, your prank depends heavily upon whom you’re pranking, so we’ve divvied up our list of ideas based on just that. It doesn’t matter if you didn’t celebrate the holiday last year or if you’re known for your pranks and are looking to kick things up a notch. Either way, we’ve got you covered.
When it comes to your significant other, it may be best to avoid the fake breakups, pregnancy announcements and proposals. Instead, you could say that you’ve decided to get their name tattooed onto your body, and even ask for their help in deciding where it should go. Or you could bake one of their favorite desserts but replace the frosting with mayonnaise. You get the idea.
Like about 50% of Dartmouth students, I migrated away from campus this winter for an off-term. I think the greatest proof of students’ intelligence at the college is the fact that most people who can migrate away from Hanover in the winter do. Yes, Dartmouth is great, learning is kool and snow is so pretty. But, sometimes you slip on black ice while running to a 9L, and while you’re lying on your back you find yourself thinking, “Maybe I’ll just stay here forever and slowly freeze.” Then you promptly reevaluate and decide to take next winter off.
Unless you’ve been pulling a Kimmy Schmidtand been living underground for the past few years, you’ve undoubtedly heard Hozier’s “Take Me to Church.” The tl;dr of PB&Jams this week is that you should go listen to the rest of his self-titled album right this second.
We’ve all heard euphoric predictions of warm weather come spring term, but those of us with some knowledge of the Northeast’s weather patterns shake our heads in scorn at such wishful thinking.
March 28th — a balmy 35 degrees, move-in day and, of course, the moment we crossed the threshold into a hard-alcohol free world.
Spring is upon us, but unfortunately I am not. I’m off this term — a by-product of my swim season schedule — and living it up at home in San Francisco, California. I have an internship I am excited to start in a couple days, a family and a fair amount of free time. Some of this free time, I am pleased to announce, will be dedicated to furthering this wonderful column. Thus I begin the next chapter of FoCo Joe — a spin-off “special edition” column, if you will—FoCo Joe at Home.
Sadly, the time has come for me to post my last column of the term. It’s been a good one, friends, and I hope you have enjoyed the journey as much as I have. That said, I have some more bad news to share. My fast approaching absence from campus this spring term can only mean one thing— it will be a while before I am able to make another FoCo creation. I know this will likely leave you, my dear readers, floundering in a sea of emotions. So allow me to try and explain. My time on the swim team has shaped my D-Plan, and as a result, the spring terms are my only opportunities to get away from Hanover. Last spring, however, I was fortunate enough to study abroad in Buenos Aires, Argentina. So that means this spring is my only shot at a real off-term. I honestly wish I had more seriously considered taking a Hanover FSP, not only so that I could have continued to celebrate the heavenly oasis that is FoCo but also so that I could have continued to share my stories and spend quality time with you all each week. Sadly, it was not to be. For once, I will truly be sorry to be off campus.
Finals are grim. In these dark times, I usually turn to sad, slow folk-rock à la Simon and Garfunkel — there is something weirdly soothing about wallowing in morose lyrics while pouring over four weeks of backlogged readings and weeping silently into my KAF cider. So when I heard the words “folk” and “rock” being thrown around in describing the latest album by Mitski Miyawaki, the Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter who goes by the handle Mitski, my ears perked up. Of course, this classification underemphasizes the intensity of the drums and distortions that pop up in almost every track of her new album “Bury Me At Makeout Creek” (2014) — but it’s technically not inaccurate.
Brown University: Last Friday, Brown University held its first “IvyG” conference, intended to promote reflection on ways to improve the college experience of first-generation students, according to the Brown Daily Herald. Nearly 250 students attended the conference, the Daily Herald reported, with an additional 50 university administrators traveling to Providence, Rhode Island. Eric Waldo, the executive director of First Lady Michelle Obama’s Reach Higher Initiative, gave the conference’s keynote address.
While some of us are surviving the run-up to finals with thoughts of warm sun and tropical drinks, many of us don’t have such exotic (and expensive) plans for this year’s spring break. Instead, some of us are headed home (like me, to Boston, which in a cruel twist of fate currently has three times as much snow as Hanover), and others are getting ready for a quiet stay here at the good alma mater.
