As 14X grew closer this spring, exclamations of “You’re going to love sophomore summer!” and “I wish I could do it again!” seemed to jump up in every conversation I had. Sighs of “the farmer's markets!” also popped up more than I expected. So far, it’s all been true —especially the farmer’s markets! One of the quintessential summer activities, farmer’s markets have become big this summer, offering fun regardless of where the sunshine finds you.

It’s a classic first-week-of-college challenge: try to find free food for every meal. Doing this for a day during Freshman Orientation was incredibly easy, with clubs and groups of all kinds vying for our attention. But over sophomore summer, things have become more complicated. Nevertheless, I decided to take on this challenge and try to find three free meals this week. Here’s how my day went:
Critiquing best-of lists is usually a futile exercise. For one thing, taste is obviously subjective, and for another, writers tend to speak to the tastes of their specific audiences. To top it all off, at the end of the day the person writing the list is getting paid to do what I do for fun, so clearly he or she is doing something right. But when I read NPR’s recent list of their 50 Favorite Songs of 2014 (So Far), I did a double-take.
Sophomore summer is full of wonderful things — farmer’s markets, sunshine, swimming in the river—but there are two things that have a deep-rooted hatred of sophomore summer and will attempt to destroy it. These enemies have names: heat and humidity.
Step 1: You’re going to wake up early and get so much done. Your alarm is set for 9 a.m. You’re getting brunch with some trippees at 10. You hear your alarm blaring and open your eyes, expecting a Snow-White-esque birds-chirping halo of sunshine. But it’s 1 p.m. Welcome to Saturday afternoon… and 12 new messages on your trippee GroupMe wondering where you are.
My goal for the past two terms has been to step up my FoCo game, especially with such limited DDS locations and hours during the summer. Collis, however, has always been harder for me to work with. Stir-fry and pasta are pretty straight-forward – pick a sauce, add some veggies, boom, you’re done. Trying to mix it up meant I had to get creative. But if you think your options are restricted, maybe you’re not thinking about it the right way.
Tuesday July, 1st. 9:35pm. Foxborough, MA. Somewhere along the side of Route 1.
1) You’re so frickin' ready.

After the Dartmouth recently reported that the King Arthur Flour Café (KAF) in Dartmouth's Baker-Berry library may be closing in December 2014, students have started a petition to keep KAF on campus. The petition currently has 128 signatures.

It’s already T-minus 360 days until July 4, 2015, so you know you better start planning now. If this year’s Independence Day didn’t quite go how you thought it would, take it as a learning experience and make the next one even greater! We’ve come up with seven "foolproof" ways to celebrate the land of the free and the home of the brave.
Summer is the perfect time to take up an intramural sport. Whether you’re showing off your softball skills or letting the World Cup get to your head and telling everyone you’re trying out “football,” chances are you could use some advice for amping up your IM game. Dust off those cleats and go borrow a real athlete for practice – we’re about to get sporty.
For this week only, King Arthur Flour’s Baker-Berry cafe is once again selling the wildly popular brie and apple baguette sandwiches. They will be available this Tuesday through Thursday from 11 a.m. until the sandwiches sell out (probably 11:03 a.m.). This is the perfect excuse to skip the first week of 10As for nostalgic upperclassmen who haven't tasted a KAF sandwich since June and eager 17s hoping to finally understand the hype.
Pickling noises tickle my ears as I walk in to the Sound/Unsound Exhibition. There are ten or so exhibits spaced across the two rooms of the Hopkins Center Garage (just next to the Courtyard Café), plus an exhibit in a storage area too small to call its own room. The exhibits are the products of current and past students of Music 34: Advanced Sound Design and Digital Music. Undergraduate and graduate students attended the reception on Nov. 14, and were treated with delectable hors d' oeuvresand wine for those of age. The exhibits challenge traditional listening experiences with interactive elements. They were all strangely mysterious, for the most part, bending sounds into high and low frequencies based on three-dimensional motion, lights and buttons, for example. Many of the descriptions for the works only vaguely explained what was happening, much of the experience was up for individual interpretation. There was also mystery in the visual displays of the exhibits, serving as more than audio experiences; one of the works converted vibrations into a visual “pattern” onto the floor, for example.
Protip: never ask to see the menu at a Spanish restaurant. But why, you might ask. Well, a menú is in fact a 3-course set lunch meal. So if you ask for it at dinner, you will just get a funny look. And if you ask for it at lunch, a large amount of food will magically take over your table unannounced.
Are you in need of a break from classes, sports or rush? Does your back hurt from lugging around your books and computer 24/7? Or are you just looking to try something new? You’re in luck, because as of Sept. 23, Mighty Yoga, Hanover’s new power yoga studio, is at your disposal.
Things that people tend to associate with sophomore summer: fun in the sun, the great outdoors, bonding by the river, camp Dartmouth, PE. Bet you didn’t see that last one coming, did you? In fact, many Dartmouth students choose to complete a PE credit during their highly anticipated sophomore summer. A number of special classes are offered during these warmer months, and there are so many options that there’s bound to be something for everyone.
Cereal Killer: This formerly creative idea has been used by the costume idea-strapped masses, but it is still a great idea. Wear a box of cereal around your neck and stab a fake knife through the outside of the box. Use paint, fake blood or anything red to make the cereal box appear bloody.
