Annual Spring Barbecue

Join the staff of '53 Commons for dinner on Tuesday, May 26th to celebrate the arrival of warm weather with our annual Spring Barbecue.  The Bare Bones Competition BBQ team from Fairlee, VT is stopping by on their return trip from Memphis in May  to help us prepare some great barbecue, including puled pork & beef brisket.  We'll also be welcoming back High Way 5, who will be providing some live music.

Backyard Grilling at the Hop

Courtyard Cafe in the Hop will be grilling some summer favorites for lunch on Thursday, May 21st.  Stop by the courtyard and use a lunch meal swipe to get your choice of grilled favorites.

Exams, Senior Week and The Start of Summer Term

Spring Term dining plans (including any DBA rolled over from previous terms) will end at 11 am on Commencement Sunday (June 14, 2015).

Summer term dining plans will begin when '53 Commons opens on Tuesday, June 25th.

DDS will be operating limited hours during this period.

Graduating in June?

If you are scheduled to graduate in June, your DDS Charging account will be turned off on May 13th so that all of your student accounts can be reconciled prior to Commencement.  If you find yourself running low on DBA, please consider setting up a graduating senior prepaid DASH account with the Dartmouth Card Office.

Love Food; Hate Waste

Love FoodIt'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.  

An Easier Way to Track your Dining Plan Spending

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.  With the introduction of this new feature, ManageMyID is no longer available.

New Courtyard Cafe Hours

Starting in Spring Term, Courtyard Cafe in the Hop will now be open from 10:30 am to Midnight on Saturdays and Sundays.
