Someone is always on-call that Friday, according to Programming Board executive director Carlos Tifa ’19.

When Dartmouth students try to articulate why the College is special, flair is frequently cited as a uniquely Dartmouth phenomenon and for good reason. Although the origins of the term “flair” cannot be identified, a 2008 article published in The Dartmouth said that it may have been derived from the 1999 movie “Office Space” with Jennifer Aniston . In the film, Aniston’s character must wear expressive pins for her job as a waitress.
