Hallucinations, trench foot and intense sleep deprivation only touch the surface of the topics of conversation surrounding the legendary Dartmouth hiking event, The Fifty. A trek of 54 miles from the Moosilauke Ravine Lodge back to campus would be hard enough on its own; completing it over the course of roughly 30 hours without stopping to sleep seems downright insane. Yet many people on campus seem to have a lot of respect for this strange tradition, and even more seem to want to participate; it’s oversubscribed each term, and students have to be selected via lottery, according to co-director Mary Joy ’21.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned since arriving on campus three weeks ago, it’s that Dartmouth rarely makes sense. Many aspects of this school have left me flustered — namely, how to order stir-fry at Collis or why GreenPrint takes at least 45 minutes to print out a two-page document. However, one aspect of Dartmouth that has particularly stood out to me is the discrepancy between the prominence of athletes and the lack of support for their games.
Whether or not you’d like to admit it, money is a factor that’s hard not to think about when choosing a major. In a perfect world, each student would simply choose the subject matter that they are most passionate about when considering their options, thinking only about the time and commitment it takes to fulfill all of the necessary requirements. However, for some, the amount of money they’ll make after leaving Hanover and entering the “real world” is a significant factor when deciding what they would like to focus on during their time at Dartmouth.
