Warning: now entering a hard hat area

|

Construction and renovation on campus the past two years have been a constant annoyance to students, but the Class of 1997 will see the rewards in its first year, and will not be as greatly inconvenienced in the future. The project most exciting for student life is the new Collis Student Center, scheduled to open this spring.

Let the College tempt your taste buds

|

Arguably the most difficult task 'shmen face at the beginning of the year is figuring out how to get the most out of a meal plan. Some form of college meal plan is mandatory for all four years, but freshmen have it especially rough because of the complicated "meal equivalency transfer," affectionately known as the "punch" system. Each first-year student must select either a 10- or 14-meal plan, and each week will have that many punches to use up -- otherwise the leftovers will simply vanish after Sunday night.

Remember the past but don't rush into old traditions

|

All first-year students know that upon entering the world of "college life," they will enter a world that has existed for hundreds of years, through thousands of students, millions of ideas and many traditions. Though the faces of Dartmouth continually evolve and shape to the newest members of its community, there are some aspects of the College that just seem to stick around. From the moment a new student reaches the campus for DOC trips, traditions are evident.

Dartmouth's mean, green social scene

|

So, you're coming to Dartmouth. Why? For most of you, part of the answer probably lies in the academics and part in the location. Nestled in the Connecticut River Valley, far from bustling cities like Boston and New York, Hanover, New Hampshire is NOT a city that never stops.

Dorm life: there's no place like home

|

While every dorm has its advantages and disadvantages, regardless of where your dorm is located or how large it is, it's your home for three terms. That first taste of independence could not be sweeter.

To 'D' or not to 'D'--it's hardly a question

|

Few places in Hanover are open at 2:30 a.m. Even fewer are buzzing with excitement -- people shouting, phones ringing, computer keys clattering. Welcome to the offices of The Dartmouth, the oldest College newspaper in America. In the fast-paced world of journalism, many of the best and brightest once covered the ins and outs of the country's most selective institutions of higher learning. And Dartmouth is no exception.

Students raise food for needy

|

Students Fighting Hunger will sponsor a canned food drive next week to benefit the Upper Valley's needy. All proceeds will go to the Listen Center of Lebanon, N.H., located at the Sacred Heart church. From August 2-8, the group will designate special areas around campus for canned good donations and will sponsor events to support the cause. As part of the drive, the Summerphonics will perform in the Hyphen next Saturday at 5:30 p.m.

Special DBA cards created for town

|

Students can now use The Hanover Green Card, a cashless system similar to Dartmouth Dining Service's declining balance plan, to purchase menu items from eight local restaurants. Driven by student demand for an alternative to the College's dining services with the convenience of a charge card, Mitch Jacobs '94 developed a new system entirely separate from the Collegethat allows students to draw from a pre-paid account for off-campus dining and delivery with a plastic card, a photo ID and a signature. Unlike the College's Valedine cards, the Hanover Green Card operates year round, including interim periods and terms students are off.

Alums rub elbows at the Dartmouth Club in NY

|

NEW YORK CITY -- Everyone, from the women in business attire to the seersucker-clad men, is moving at the standard Ivy League crawl in the Dartmouth Club in midtown Manhattan. Upon entering the Yale Club, with which the Dartmouth Club shares facilities, it is hard to escape the traditional scenery that is more reminiscent of Sanborn House than a playground of Ivy League graduates. Although Dartmouth shares the building with Yale, Yalies dominate the atmosphere.
