Please join us for dinner on Monday in '53 Commons as we celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving! We'll be serving up the traditional turkey dinner, along with some poutine and a selection of seasonal pies.
Collis Café, Novack Café and Courtyard Café are all proud to serve organic and fair trade certified coffee from Pierce Brothers’ Coffee.
If you would like to learn more about our coffee, and see the difference air roasting the beans makes in the final product, the Pierce Brothers will be roasting green beans from Sumatra, preparing freshly-roasted samples and answering all of your coffee questions.

It's tempting to pile the plate high when your hungry, but how much will you actually eat? By raising awareness of how much food is discarded, Claire Beskin ’16, Francesca Governali ’18 and Margarita Ren ’18 hope to inspire other students to be thoughtful when filling their plates.
During dinner on April 22nd, these students organized a project asking students to scrape their plates into bins. After it was all done, they had collected 132 lbs. of compostable waste from 569 students – nearly ¼ of a pound per person.
When visiting the Class of 1953 Commons, diners normally put their dishes, napkins & trash on the dish carousel, and DDS staff members sort it between compostable waste, reusable dinnerware and the random bits destined to be recycled; very little ever makes it to a landfill, but there’s always room for more sustainable choices.
The Dartmouth Card Office is introducing GET Funds, a new way to track your dining plan spending (as well as DA$H and other accounts on your Dartmouth ID Card). GET Funds is available as a webpage and as an app.
