The Known and Never Known

(11/14/13 9:32pm)

As the fall winds down, we find ourselves growing more and more nostalgic of our time here. They say you get wiser with age, but as the sun sets on our Dartmouth careers, we feel we are becoming less knowledgeable and less relevant. We did some research and uncovered dirt on aspects of Dartmouth that ’17s will never know, as well as things only they (so far) have experienced.

A Room With Many Views

(11/14/13 9:13pm)

I can remember my first time in the 1902 Room. My trippee said it was a cool place to study, so I went with her after my 12. When we sat down, I loudly asked her why the room was so quiet. She shushed me. This was not only my first time in the 1902 Room, but also my first time in a quiet study space. At the moment, I didn’t really get why people wanted to study in silence. It just wasn’t my scene.

What Have We Done

Hello. Merry finals season. Happy Thanksgiving. Merry Christmas/Chanukah/Kwanzaa. Happy New Year. Good winterim. The next time you hear from us, all of this will be over, grades will be in, turkeys eaten in celebration of things that should not be celebrated, presents unwrapped, resolutions made and resolutions shattered.

In Case You Were Wondering

In case you were wondering, ping pong, or table tennis, is probably older than you think it is — some form of it has existed since the mid-1800s. Modern paddles and balls have been around since the 1950s, and by all accounts, some variation of pong has been played at Dartmouth since then. I could have made my last column of the term be something deep and insightful, but instead I have chosen to write a treatise on pong.

Verbum Ultimum: The Path Forward

(11/14/13 8:39pm)

In anticipation of College President Phil Hanlon’s remarks to the arts and sciences faculty on Monday, we would like to clarify some points made in our last editorial and highlight our hopes for how Hanlon will address student life issues that continue to plague the College. While we would never doubt Hanlon’s commitment to the undergraduate experience, our message last week meant to convey worries that his speech to the faculty did not reflect that commitment, nor chart a substantive path forward. If Dartmouth is to remain the top undergraduate institution in the country, Hanlon’s administration needs to proactively develop iterative innovations in every facet of undergraduate life.
