Dartmouth College is a little bubble surrounded by beautiful scenery. Only 17% of the students in my class — the class of 2026 — who go to school here are from New England, so the environment is a new experience for the vast majority. I talked to students who travel to campus from far and wide about their perspective on New Hampshire and the Upper Valley as a whole.
It’s been November for a couple of weeks, but it’s finally starting to feel like it. Today, while procrastinating papers and attempting to clear my head, I went for a walk in the woods behind the golf course. It’s easy to forget that we’re so close to nature — the golf course has gone untended since the varsity golf team stopped practicing there, and now the overgrown grass is less of a stark separation from the forest behind it. I stuffed my hands in my pockets and looked up at the sharp branches which made up the canopy above my head. It will look exactly like that until March or April. The winter always feels like the longest part of the year, even though it has the shortest days.
I recently sent my first flitz to a girl that I met briefly at a party. I was nervous, but hopeful. She flitzed me back a day later, agreeing to a coffee date — only to tell me five hours later that she had a terrible habit for flirting and was already involved with someone else. But we still got coffee and had a good time, and I gained a friend in the process.
When our alarms go off in the morning, we drag ourselves out of bed, mentally cursing every extra minute that we stayed up the night before. With late-night homework, the temptation to go out and the ever-earlier wakeup times for class and cramming in the morning, our precious sleep hours are the last priority, the first thing sacrificed to shove something else into our schedule.
In the words of “The Office” character Kevin Malone, “I just want to lie on the beach and eat hot dogs. That’s all I’ve ever wanted.”
Injuries are bound to happen at a college like Dartmouth.
As an overthinker with an individuality complex, I’m always looking for some witty, descript answer to “How’s it going?” I’ll be damned if I hit the one syllable “good.” Somedays, I’ll launch into an unwarranted monologue about my latest DDS hack or dire need to do laundry. Other times I’ll respond with a simple “it’s going.” My answers are arguably no more insightful than “fine, how ’bout you?” but at least they transcend the good/bad binary that reduces entire states of being into meaningless, digestible boxes.
This past weekend, the College celebrated 50 years of coeducation with an invitation for all alumnae to return to campus and engage with programming that included the rededication of Dartmouth Hall, eight panel discussions on Saturday and a conversation with College President-elect Sian Leah Beilock, who will become the first woman to lead the College.

On Nov. 4, Dartmouth Dining Services reopened late night dining at the Courtyard Cafe on Friday and Saturday until midnight — which they had “historically” done before the pandemic, according to Dartmouth Dining director Jon Plodzik. According to Dartmouth Student Government President David Millman ’23, the change is part of Dartmouth Dining’s efforts to extend dining hours across campus dining locations, accommodate students with irregular schedules and provide a secondary social space to Greek houses.
Dartmouth’s Institute of Arctic Studies within the Dickey Center for International Understanding received a $1.3 million grant from the National Science Foundation, an endeavor led by environmental studies research professor Lauren Culler and Institute of Arctic Studies director Melody Burkins. The Institute of Arctic Studies has received three grants thus far from the NSF, with the latest stipend projected to strengthen the hybridization of experiential learning and cross-cultural collaboration between Greenland, Denmark and the United States.

On Tuesday, President of Iceland Dr. Guðni Thorlacius Jóhannesson delivered the 2022 Stefansson Memorial Lecture at the Loew Auditorium.

Events and programming for the celebration included an “I’m first” rock painting activity, cupcakes at Collis Center and career counseling at the Center for Professional Development.
In a classic 2000s movie, the individual intricacies of high school students are boiled down to stereotypical and generalized high school tropes — the jocks, band geeks, nerds, popular kids, theater kids, etc. — that constitute the school. The movie-esqe stereotypes may be an exaggerated interpretation of high school students, but it’s true that from the outside, our interests are sometimes the first thing people see.
