FoCo Joe: DIY Rice Krispie Treats

(10/03/14 9:00am)

So I have to start this column by admitting that for some reason, this week I had no idea what type of dessert I wanted to make. Last week’s apples and honey dessert was obvious, given the start of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. This week, I sadly had no holiday to fall back on when my creative juices failed me. Like the state of California, my creative juices are facing a serious drought. For some reason, all of my usual go-to sources for clever dessert ideas just weren’t helping me. But luckily, my friends came to the rescue this week — I must give credit to Lydie McKenzie ’16, whose idea to make Rice Krispies treats in FoCo turned out so well. How could I have failed to come with something so simple and saliva-inducing on my own?

Guide to DOC Cabins

(10/03/14 8:00am)

I spent this summer on the Dartmouth Outing Club’s Cabin and Trail Crew. It was a summer filled withstimulating intellectual conversations, crack (this, NOTthis), shenanigans and lots of manual labor. I injured my shoulder while doing work during the third week and got put on the injured-squad of cabin crew. This meant that I spent the next seven weeks traveling from cabin to cabin chopping wood, cleaning and dealing with moremouse poopthan I ever care to see again. Through this summer I discovered what, in my opinion, is the most under-utilized resource Dartmouth has to offer —beautifully maintainedcabins all over the wilderness of New Hampshire. Here is a guide to the best that each cabin has to offer, as well as how to rent a cabin.

The debate was catalyzed by the June 13 firing of Daniel King and John Boutin, two longtime Lebanon Co-op employees who were dismissed without explanation, though some of the Co-op’s members say they had previous concerns.

TTLG: Frat Enough or Nah?

As I come upon my fifth term at Dartmouth, I have reached the status of what one would call a SWUG — “Sophomore Washed-Up Gender-nonconformer.” Despite the growing exhaustion, I have undergone an incredibly comprehensive process of self-discovery. For many of my peers, the last week of September may bring an opportunity to explore how they fit into the social fabric of Dartmouth as they navigate the rush process.
