Celebrate Homecoming weekend, beginning with Dartmouth Night on Friday, Oct. 21 starting at 5:30 p.m. on the Green. Festivities include the Dartmouth Night Parade, the bonfire, a faculty "Chalk Talk" lecture before the football game, a student poster session, a swing dance and more. Begin the day on Saturday, Oct. 22 at 9 a.m. in the Hanover Inn to hear Sydney Finkelstein, Steven Roth Professor of Management at the Tuck School, explain "Why Smart Executives Fail." Continue on to the Top of the Hop to see the latest student research, on display from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. Catch the game at Memorial Field at noon, when the Big Green takes on Columbia, and dance the night away with the Fred Haas Sextet at a Celebration Swing Dance from 9 p.m. to midnight in Alumni Hall.
