Winter Carnival Themes Prove Dartmouth’s Obsession with Dr. Seuss

(02/08/16 11:03am)

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.









What You Googled This Week: Snow Storm Edition

(01/27/16 12:38pm)

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:



DIY Beauty: Dartmouth Dining Services Edition

(01/25/16 2:00pm)

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.



6 Best Spots To Hide On Campus

(01/22/16 1:30pm)

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:





Beyond the Bubble: Parker Begins

(01/22/16 9:00am)

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.
