Well, that’s what Safety and Security sergeant Rebel Roberts was instructed back in her own college days, and the advice didn’t sit well with her. Roberts recognized that while these certainly were two options, they were by no means the only two. And Roberts worried the this-or-that presentation horrified and alienated many of the other women in the room.
Martha Hennessey ’76 lives in a small house nestled on a quiet street just off Webster Avenue. It’s a cozy space with a palpable history, filled with family photos and Dartmouth prints.
A small crowd gathered in the hallway of the third floor of McCulloch Hall. Holli Weed ’14 sat with her back against the far wall and spoke in a clear, assured voice to her residents. She gestured to the dozen homemade cupcakes with chocolate frosting in the middle of the room.
