Annual Spring Barbecue Dinner

Join us for dinner at Foco on Wednesday, May 31st for our annual spring barbecue.  We'll have live music, giveaways and plenty of barbecue from the award winning Bare Bones competition barbecue team from Fairlee, VT.  

But the fun doesn't start with dinner - this barbecue takes a long time to cook.  Stop by during lunch, meet the team and maybe even get a great free prize from Coca-Cola.

A World-class Athlete Returns to Dartmouth

Erik Lemieux

This was Erik’s first international competition as a snowshoe athlete. He is rightly proud of the bronze medal he won for racing in the 4x100 meter relay, and the ribbons he won for participating in the 100 meter (he came in 6th) and 200 meter individual snowshoe events. Click here for terrific photos of the World Winter games.     [more]

Take Less = Waste Less

Between 30 and 40% of all food in the United States ends up in landfills and composting bins each year. Help Dartmouth lead the way in reducing this statistic.  

The crew at 1953 Commons makes sure we compost 100% of what is not eaten, but there are still plenty of opportunities to waste less food.  The best way is to help is to make sure you are not taking more than you eat.  It's harder than it sounds, since there are so many different options and we fill our plates when we are at our hungriest. Make the sustainable choice and take less on your first trip.  You can always go back for more!
