Where would we be without our friends? While even thinking about this question makes me really sad, I thankfully don’t need to answer it. Now that the D-Plan has finally reunited our class after a crazy year of adventures abroad and exciting internships, we can rekindle the friendships that may have fallen by the wayside. All our friends are here. The countless Collis lunch dates and trips to the river I’ve seen in the past week indicate that friendship is a top priority for ’14s — even as we return to the stressful routine of taking classes (or not).
This week The Mirror asks members of our class to explore different aspects of friendship at Dartmouth — for better and for worse. Thankfully, I’m happy to report that our friendships are pretty wonderful. Despite the cattiness and gossip that may seem inevitable on a small campus, most of us consider friendship to be one of the most important aspects of our Dartmouth experience. I hope this issue prompts you to cherish the friendships you’ve made in the first half of your time at Dartmouth, and hopefully inspire you to put yourself out there in the time we have left!
