Regardless of this year’s bonfire (or lack thereof), it is this writer’s humble opinion that humans should be afraid of fire.

Can it really be Week 7 already? Time flies when you’re having fun, cramming for midterms and blacking out. The problem with our ten-week terms is that there’s never enough time to do everything you wanted. There’s always a bit of regret about the opportunities you missed out on. And though this may not be a solution, mapping out and prioritizing some bucket list items you want to scratch off before 18F is officially over might help you make the most out of the last few weeks you have on campus. So without further ado, let’s jump into the must-dos of 18F. Of course, only if you want to.
Dartmouth’s 10-week term means that you get to school, add-drop period begins and ends, and then it’s midterms season for the few weeks before finals. Midterms on their own are stressful enough, but given the time crunch that Dartmouth students face, it’s not easy to avoid a mental breakdown, and nothing defines a breakdown more than a crazy Google search history.

Rho Chi: “Boys’ rush is like capitalism and girls’ rush is like socialism.”
Midterm season sucks. You lose sight of your friends, eat meals at Novack and wear the same sad hoodie everyday. I myself write this article about procrastinating midterms with the extreme stress of a CS1 midterm looming over my head. (Shameless plug: writing for Dartbeat is much more fun than studying for midterms.) Without further ado, here are seven wholesome activities to do instead of studying for midterms:
As many ’21s have learned this term, rush is not all it’s cracked up to be. The system is flawed, and even though you wore your cutest outfits and had awesome conversations, it might not have worked out. But that’s okay! In reality, there’s so much more to do and discover on campus! While being affiliated is fun, here are other fun activities for you and your friends (affiliated or not) to do now that the rush process is over.
It’s finally fall, and you’re finally here, at the college of your dreams. You’re peppy and excited and ready to #thrive — but it turns out things are a little bit harder than you think. Dartmouth is a whole new world! As a result, sometimes you’re lonely, and your first care package from home made you cry, and your classes are actually kind of hard. You, the valedictorian at your old high school, are actually struggs to func, and it’s making you re-evaluate everything.
As you walk into Foco and survey the scene, debate whether to give into your cravings for a cookie or go for the healthier options and consider dark side vs. light side, music hums over the speakers. As you chew your food, you might start to think about what they could play besides the typical Top 40 mix. Well, there’s no need to wonder any further. We’ve compiled an alternative Foco playlist with songs to match every mood.
Imagine you’re sitting in your 9L, half asleep and waiting for class to start, when all of a sudden someone bursts into the room with a monogrammed tote and Starbucks (why did she go so far for coffee when KAF exists?). You know everyone in the room just had the same thought you did — this person is basic af.
The configuration of Freshman Fall friends is ever-changing. You were so sure that one person you met on Lodj Night on Trips or during O-Week would be one of your best friends, only to look back midway through the quarter and wonder where your dear friend went. Facebook occasionally sends out a notification saying, “Congratulations! You made 314 friends in September,” translated as “WTF* there is no way you could name 50 of them.” Let’s investigate the composition of our new “best friends” list:
It’s no secret that rush is not exactly the most enjoyable one to two weeks of a Dartmouth student’s life. If you’ve spent the first weeks of this term schmoozing brothers and sisters, you’re probably in dire need of a break. And since parties on frat row are probably not bringing back the best of memories right now, here are 12 things that are better than rush:
With midterms coming up you may find yourself short on time, meaning that treks to FoCo, Collis or even into town for food may become few and far between. Just how will you manage to spend your endless meal swipes (’20s), or your quickly-declining DBA (everybody else) in the most efficient way possible? With the ultimate college solution: instant noodles.
Life may feel like it’s lost all meaning now that Homecoming and Halloween have come and gone. What are you supposed to do now that you’ve completed the quest for the perfect Halloween costume?
