When reflecting on Green Key, talking to friends, peers, professors and randos, we came to the conclusion that the weekend revolves around just a few things: drinking, basking in the glory of spring and taking a much-needed respite before the onslaught of finals. Unlike Homecoming and Winter Carnival, Dartmouth's other oddly ritualistic big weekends, Green Key is distinctly lacking in traditions, despite numerous attempts by the Green Key Society to revive the Green Key Ball.

She stepped out bravely from the double doors that guard the 1902 Room just as I shuffled out of Sanborn's back exit, my chin tucked as far into my scarf as humanly possible. In a sweeping and practiced motion, she extracted an open pack of cigarettes and a lighter from her back pocket, tapped the cardboard carton to her palm, and brought a small, white roll to her lips. She muttered an expletive as she turned her back to the wind and used her hand to cup the flame that curled atop the lighter. I walked past just slowly enough to notice she had trimmed her knitted gloves to not lose dexterity in her fingers while keeping them warm. She was no stranger to the winter cigarette break.
