Green Key: a weekend steeped in tradition. Nothing else at Dartmouth is as steeped in tradition as Green Key. Many things are steeped in tradition at Dartmouth, but try as we might, we cannot tradition-steep them even to the same order of steepitude as is steeped the fair weekend of Green Key.

The Magic Key

(05/19/00 9:00am)

Once upon a time, in a collegial kingdom far removed from our space and epoch, there lived a young vassal named Jeff, who wrote columns for the local newspaper. (He had to write them on parchment with a quill, of course.) One day his editor, the Good Queen Op-Ed, said to him, "Prithee, Jeff, wilt thou write on th'eminent subject of Green Key?"

(05/19/00 9:00am)

More so than any of the College's other big weekends, Green Key brings to mind infamous comparisons to the movie "Animal House." Created by Chris Miller '63 -- who was known as "Pinto" to his Alpha Delta fraternity brothers -- the movie was inspired by Miller's own Green Key experiences as a brother at AD to celebrate the mindless fun and incredible debauchery of those days.
