'17: "I don’t understand how at Dartmouth everyone is an intimidating genius except during group projects."
Maybe you heard this tossed out as a "fun" fact when you toured Dartmouth for the first time. Maybe you looked around at all the disgustingly happy couples on campus and figured it out for yourself. Maybe your parents, like mine, are living proof of this terrifying statistic: Roughly 10 percent of Dartmouth graduates go on to marry each other.
If you’re not looking for Kata Thai Kitchen, you definitely won’t find it. Tucked beneath an unmarked staircase across the alley—err—street from Everything But Anchovies, the restaurant doesn’t get much foot traffic. Luckily I knew where to look, and when I made it inside, it was nothing like what I expected. The interior appears equal parts retro diner, Chipotle and nightclub (the lighting is dim and ambient). And oh yeah, they serve Thai food.
’19: "My bed is a haven of cleanliness."
So I grew up in rural Vermont. Like, really rural. There were times (about monthly when it wasn’t winter) when our neighbors’ flock of sheep would stampede up our driveway, take over the front deck and not leave for hours. Once, another neighbor threatened to shoot our dog if he kept eating their chickens (We claimed he hadn’t, but he definitely did — sorry, Mr. Bartlett.)
Well, we’re two weeks into the New Year and I guess the presidential election still hasn’t happened. Is it just me, or should that thing have already happened like twice by now? I swear Hillary’s been chilling in Cedar Rapids for a decade. I’ve been feeling a bern for so long I have half a mind to schedule an appointment with my health care provider. Trump is somehow still #relevant (luckily I don’t have to write a joke for that because it’s already tragically hilarious).
It's 6 degrees. It's 60 degrees. It's 6 degrees again. You know Hanover weather, and by now you've probably settled into a truly Dartmouthian holding pattern of perpetual uncertainty. Maybe you wear ten layers. Maybe you spent winterim training to withstand the physical and emotional pain of your nose hairs freezing together. Or maybe you avoid the problem entirely, accepting the reality of never again seeing a human face. Either way, it will happen: you will eventually slip on the ice.
Ahhh, Friendsy: the bane of everyone's late night exploits; the beginning of a few beautiful relationships and even more awkward Foco encounters; the digital dating experience with the combined anxiety of Orgo and frustration of Greenprint.
Dartmouth students receive thousands of blitzes from the campus listserv every day (Okay, that’s an exaggeration, but we all know the pain of a flooded inbox.) Last year, I decided to embrace the blitzstorm phenomenon: Instead of frantically deleting every blitz that didn’t directly relate to me, I filtered through my inbox to narrow down the best listserv blitzes of 2015. Here are the top 10:
Explaining Big Green culture to someone living outside the Dartmouth bubble is never easy. Trippees? Drill? 'Shmob? What the hell is a Foco? Luckily Mindy Kaling, one of our more famous alums (and former cartoonist for The D), is bringing Dartmouth life to the big screen in her TV series, The Mindy Project. While it's true that Mindy Lahiri never attends Dartmouth in the show, we can't help but notice that a few of her experiences perfectly sum up life at Dartmouth:
Dartbeat asks a group of musically inclined students to recommend their favorite song picks of the week. We then share a few of those tracks. Enjoy!
16W is finally here and with it the return of snow, sleet and cripplingly depressed LSA/FSP students. While your recently-abroad BFF transitions back to the Hanover winter, you’ll be busy braving the bitter chill of your quasi-cultured companion. For those of you interested in salvaging what is left of your friendship, here are six tips for dealing with your annoying BFF post-study abroad.
Some of us spent winterim hiking through the Amazon rainforest, while others traveled only as far as their fridge. Some of us learned the art of Tuscan cuisine, while others continued to burn toast in the safety of their homes. And while many of us set aside time for family and old friends, most of us spent six weeks burning through the list of Netflix originals.
The NRO has saved your life (and your GPA) on more than one occasion, and you couldn’t be more grateful for its existence. If the administration ever actually gets rid of it, you’ll be the first to write a letter of protest. But what if the NRO applied to more than just your CHEM 52 class? Here are 9 things you wish you could NRO IRL:
From the historic halls of Russell Sage to the hamster trails of the Choates, Dartmouth’s first-year housing options have a wide range of appearances and personalities – just like Miss Universe contestants! But, just how would these resident halls stack up in a beauty pageant scholarship program?
Studies have shown that 88% of people who set New Year's resolutions fail to follow through on them (Thanks, Wikipedia!) Come late March, many of us lose motivation (or simply forget) about our resolutions. Sometimes it’s because we make too many resolutions, and sometimes it’s because we set goals that are far too unrealistic. In the spirit of practicality (and as my promise to "never lose another pong game" flies out the window), I think it’s time we all admit that our resolutions are doomed to fail.
I know when that hotline bling, that can only mean one thing: 16W is here!
By the time you’re reading this, we will have surprised our roommate, Maggie, by holding an early celebration at our house for her always-over-winter-break birthday.
College is a time when people's political views separate from those of their parents. They branch out, experiment with new ideologies and authors and eventually form ideas of their own. A person who comes into college a conservative may leave an ardent left-winger, but someone who enters as a moderate liberal may end up a conservative. So how will college treat your views? See where you were when you entered and follow the flowchart to determine your ideological destiny.
