At an Ivy League school, a certain amount of healthy competition is expected. In high school, we fought to make our way to the top. Fought to get the best grades, be in the most extra curricular activities, excel at our chosen sport, artistic medium, musical instrument, volunteer position, insert interest here. We worked as hard as we could to one day get that golden ticket to the promised land. In the world of high school and college admissions, we were the fittest (humbly, of course). But what happens after? What happens after you worked, you fought, you survived? Getting in is just the beginning. Surviving Dartmouth is a whole other challenge. Each week feels like a sprint, each term a marathon. From all-nighters to rushed Novack lunches to crowded networking events, one can feel less like a student and more like a runner in a seemingly never-ending race. And beyond the pressure cooker of Dartmouth, there exists an entirely new playing field. Immediately after graducation, you’re set back to square number one. This is the game of life. This week the Mirror explores the different ways we fight and survive at Dartmouth. Survival is necessary, but hopefully you’ll come out on top.
Michael Lin '21 and Divya Kopalle '21 capture the beginning of spring at Dartmouth.
Campus is buzzing with the sounds of spring: birds chirping in the morning, the crunch of gravel (and not ice) under our feet, excited tour guides herding groups of eager high school students across the Green. Spring is in the air and so are the birds and the bees, in more ways than one. It’s spring, the end of cuffing season, the end of 5 p.m. sunsets and gray skies. Days are longer and campus is fuller. The onset of spring brings with it a new hum of birds and bees in the air and sets in motion changes of many dimensions. Our environment is changing with us. This week the Mirror speaks with Collis staff member Falcon Wright, investigates the Dartmouth Organic Farm’s unique organization and converses with students who fly through the air suspended by silks.
