Homecoming 07 Fall

After my old laptop broke down on me, I just up and decided to purchase a new laptop to replace it. So, my life is back in order now and can now post about Homecoming, which I promised to do a while back.

Each term at Dartmouth features a special "big weekend." In the fall, that would be Homecoming. One aspect that I find so striking is that our Homecoming is geared and focused on the First-Year students. It's a tradition and evening that links you with previous classes and generations. Yes you may have matriculated, yes you may be several weeks into classes, but until you've experienced your Homecoming Bonfire, you've been lacking something.

The main focus is a giant bonfire built by the First-Year class (the 11's this year) in the middle of the green. On that Friday evening, all the First-Year students march through campus to gather their peers and arrive at the Green at the same time. And the tradition is that you run around the bonfire 100 plus your class year. So, this year they were supposed to run around 111 times. For myself, it was 108 laps (I did all of them). Not everyone does it and you do however many you desire, but it's exciting to be with your class, a giant bonfire and the student, alumni, faculty and local community watching, cheering and sharing in it with you.
