Apparently Keggy the Keg, Dartmouth's semi-controversial unofficial mascot, is back. Some of you may not have noticed that he ever left, but a new video from the Jack-O-Lantern has officially announced his return to the football scene. The Jacko's YouTube video has around 475 views so far.
Maybe we'll never get used to the new FoCo, but at least we have one change to be happy about. DDS has surprised us yet again, but this time the change is pretty classy — sick new Lone Pine chairs! These beauties can now be found in '53 Commons and make the place look quite swanky.

As the Republican primary debate and its attendant media frenzy descend on Dartmouth, we will be confronted by political issues whether we like it or not. In particular, politics plays an important, yet often undiscussed, role in the classroom.
