Despite the fact that there is no snow and that temperatures last week seemed more like late April than early February, Winter Carnival is upon us. And yes, while it is nice being able to walk outside without having the air hurt your face, you're probably still concerned aboutWinter Carnival and how it's even going to be a thing in this ridiculous weather. Luckily, you have Google for that:
Skizzy Mars – Crash (ft. Pell)
It’s safe to say that Dartmouth is obsessed with Dr. Seuss. Also known as Theodor Geisel, the famous Dartmouth alum left a massive footprint behind when he graduated in 1925. Actually, it might be more accurate to say that he put on sharp, spiked shoes, stomped around, and even jumped up and down. Freshmen eat green eggs and ham at the Lodge during trips, training us to learn Dr. Seuss’ Dartmouth connection before we even move into our dorms. What’s more, the Dartmouth Co-op sells “Thing 1” and “Thing 2 costumes” for infants, Baker Library has a whole room devoted to the guy, and, oh right, someone named the entire medical school after him. This year’s winter carnival theme is “Seuss On The Loose,” but it is far from the first time we have honored our beloved alum. Check out these Winter Carnival themes of the past that further salute Dr. Seuss.
’18 #1: “I wish I had Beta all day.”’18 #2:"You mean you wish you had Beta all night."
Puddles: The snow sculpture this year is more like performance art about the destruction of the environment.
If you aren’t a member of at least ten to fifteen GroupMe’s, you probably don’t go here. If you haven’t heard of GroupMe, then please let me know what rock you’ve been living under. I’d like to join you to escape from homework and midterms and responsibilities.
Move over, Kylie Jenner. There’s a new Instagram star in town, and she’s absolutely adorable.
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!

We may have avoided the twenty-six inches that hit the Mid-Atlantic this week, but there’s snow way to avoid the truth that a blizzard in Hanover is inevitable. Blizzards make possible the Dartmouth winter fun we all love to fail at: skiing, snowball fights and trying to identify people behind big furry hoods. But with the news of an impending snowstorm also come 1) panic and 2) a boatload of questions you don’t have the answers to. Luckily, you have Google for that:
Hello. It’s me, someone completely unqualified to offer my musical opinion, about to weigh in passionately! My tastes are the only ones that matter, because I am the foremost authority and everything that you listen to or that I haven’t heard is swill.
Picture this: It is a fine Tuesday evening. You have just returned from a two-hour workout at the gym. You feast your eyes on a delightful quinoa spinach tofu salad from Collis and a steaming cup of antioxidant-packed tea. While snacking on your holistic protein supplement, however, you suddenly realize that you accidentally finished all your homework the night before. The horror! In a tizzy you look around your room: Your laundry is done, your bed is made, your shelves have been de-cluttered. A single tear rolls down your cheek. You feel lost and devoid of purpose.
Sorority recruitment may be over, but the Dartbeat team never stops living young and wild and free. Our hobbies include writing hard-hitting gif lists, blowing snow from our hands and waving playfully from atop staircases.
As small as the Dartmouth campus is, sometimes we still yearn for some quiet alone time. Campus is crawling with hidden rooms, tucked away study spaces and cozy alcoves perfect for escaping the bustling Hanover street(s?). Whether you're hiding from the weird hookup that won't stop flitzing you or in need of a study session (Week 3 midterms, whaaat?), here are the six best places to hide out on campus:
What is sociopathy? After consulting “the literature,” I’ve come to the conclusion that I’ve been using the term "sociopath" all wrong. Turns out that kid who bumped into me in the stir-fry line probably isn’t a violent sociopath.
X-hours: Thanks, MLK!
'17: "I don’t understand how at Dartmouth everyone is an intimidating genius except during group projects."
That said, there’s a magic to the city, a way of being that is wholly separate and unique from rural life. There’s a certain frenetic energy that is bounded not by nature or by steel skyscrapers, but by people. In the mountains of Vermont, where I grew up, or in the moors and dunes of Nantucket, where I have now lived for five years, humanity never seems to reign supreme. Rather, the storms, the winds, the sun and the land seem to harbor the authority to decide the fate of buildings, streets and sometimes whole towns. But in New York, the limits are what people can do. Never, after a hurricane, would anyone think to simply not rebuild that building since it will just get knocked over by another hurricane. No, instead there exists a billion-dollar scheme to literally armor the southern edge of Manhattan against future storms. It’s like a city of 8.4 million is saying “come at me, bro” to the world.
Rumor: Seniors leave $10 bills inside theirHonors Theses. When they come back to Dartmouth 10 years later, they check to see if anyone has read their thesis by whether or not the bill is still there.
