Flair, like Homecoming or Winter Carnival, is a Dartmouth tradition. But part of what distinguishes this tradition from our termly festivals is the fact that flair is worn year-round it begins with Trips and ends, well, never. Whether worn as party attire, used as a costume to cheer on a team or donned just for fun, flair is about as ubiquitous on this campus as beer and snow.

Daily Debriefing

A study appearing in the Journal of American College Health found that students who live in coed housing engage in binge drinking more frequently than do those that live in single-sex housing, according to Inside Higher Ed. The study found that 42 percent of students living in coed housing engaged in binge drinking weekly, while only 18 percent of students living in single-sex housing engaged in the same behavior each week, Inside Higher Ed reported. The study involved more than 500 students from five separate colleges, according to Inside Higher Ed. Because most surveyed students who were living in coed housing did not specifically request this living situation, researchers did not attribute the discrepancy to the theory that students who frequently binge drink select to live in coed housing. The study was conducted by Brigham Young University professor Jason Carroll and Brian Willoughby, a visiting professor at Brigham Young.
