Life At Camp Dartmouth

The beauty of sophomore summer.

Life At Camp Dartmouth
Andi Norman

I am gonna come right out and say it: I love summer school. Maybe it’s the place, maybe it’s the people, but Sophomore Summer has been one of the best summers ever. Forget the 6:30 workouts and normal class load. The College on the Hill makes for a perfect summer spot. Here’s why.

Lazy days at the river

With no air conditioning in dorms and the heat of summer, one of the only ways to cool off (besides a cold shower) is heading down to the river. Time spent at the river is never time wasted.

Workouts with my people

Although 6:15 lift is not the most fun thing I have ever done, working out with the other '18s motivates the hell out of me. I absolutely love getting to train with my four best friends leading up to our junior year. Also, it is infinitely better than completing the summer workout packet at home (sorry squad...).

Homework on the Green (doing anything on the Green, really)

While homework during summer months is not an ideal situation, sitting out in the green makes it much more bearable. The green is a great place to make everything better, from eating meals to studying for exams to evening sunsets.

'18s everywhere!!!

I love the '17s and my '19s, and even my incoming '20s, but having only the '18s on campus is an awesome opportunity to meet other classmates. While I am not one to branch out much, I have more this term than the previous two years combined. And though I have made new friends this summer, I can assure you that it is rare to see me without my fellow DWB '18s.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
