Happy Homecoming everyone! What better way to celebrate this wonderful weekend than with an exciting French Fry Bonfire straight from FoCo? This week’s dessert is French fries topped with “the fire” – no, it is not spicy, nor is it the predictable ketchup-mustard combo. This is a dessert fire, if you will—a sweet and creamy concoction of vanilla soft serve, orange soda and (since it is fall) a touch of pumpkin ice cream. This week’s dessert, unlike last week’s Apple Burger, is incredibly easy to replicate. Step 1: Grab a handful of fries, around 20 or so, from the grill station. If you want to make a giant bonfire, by all means go for it; this dessert is intended to serve one to two people (also unlike most of my other dessert creations — woohoo!). Step 2: Stack fries “log cabin” style — two parallel French fries to start the first layer, then another pair of French fries on top as another “story.” The second pair is perpendicular to the first “story.” Use longer French fries at the bottom of the bonfire, and shorter ones toward the top. Step 3: Mix vanilla soft serve (or ice cream — it’s just a preference thing for me, though ice cream is creamier and thicker in texture) with a small scoop of pumpkin ice cream and some orange soda. To give the “fire” the hot color it deserves, veer toward the orange soda bias and use the vanilla more conservatively. Step 4: Dip fries into the “fire” and enjoy! This dessert is not quite as savory and amazing as the McDonald’s French fry-McFlurry combo, but at least you can finally “touch the fire” safely.
Across schools, Dartmouth’s faculty remains predominantly white and fewer than 20 percent are minorities.
Yesterday's episode of “The Mindy Project” was, as always, pretty hilarious. Mindy lied to get out of a ticket, after which she lied again, after which she lied again. All in all, it was a typical episode, except for one thing.
This Homecoming, we decided to devote our special issue to a topic that has always been synonymous with life at Dartmouth: the Greek system.
The Dartmouth asked campus an open-ended question: “What do you want the world to know about Dartmouth Greek life?” Their written responses follow:
On a warm September night, a group of male students walked past Gold Coast Lawn, past an outdoor fall concert. One pulled at his jacket as he made his way toward Webster Avenue.
In summer 2013, Alpha Delta fraternity and Delta Delta Delta sorority hosted a Bloods and Crips-themed party — spurring campus uproar, national media attention and, eventually, policy changes meant to reprimand cultural insensitivity in the Greek system. Noah Smith ’15, a member of Phi Delta Alpha fraternity, said the controversy led him to question how he fit into a community that some were calling racist.
It was Green Key weekend, known for outdoor concerts, day drinking and revelry. But several fraternities had another goal in mind: raising money for the Upper Valley Haven, an organization based in White River Junction that provides shelter, food and clothing to those in need. With an ankle-level round horizontal net and a number of balls, 32 teams competed in the first annual Green Key Spikeball Tournament — ultimately donating more than $1,000 to the local shelter.
During the third week of January, Lacey Jones ’16 sensed that something was different walking into her club volleyball practice.
Leslie Gordon ’79 founded the College’s first sorority — Sigma Kappa sorority, now Sigma Delta sorority — during her sophomore year in 1977, only four years after Dartmouth started admitting women.
As alumni flock back to the College this Homecoming weekend, the bonfire will not be their only destination — many will return to the Greek houses they spent countless hours in as students. These organizations, they recall, provided tight-knit groups of friends that last to this day.
