We’ll keep it stocked throughout finals period. Milk, soymilk, and almond milk are in the fridge. Please keep the space clean and offer suggestions any additional cereal flavors. Happy Finals!
HOUSE INTERN JOB OPPORTUNITY
Starting Spring term we will be looking to hire one or two West House Interns (approx. 5 hours per week each) to work on publicity, events, and other activities for the House. A full job listing will be available soon; if interested, please feel free to email Ryan.C.Hickox@dartmouth.edu for more information or details on how to apply.
House Professor’s Teas
We’re currently scheduling House Professor’s Teas for next term. If you have an idea for guests or discussions, please let us know. We’ll be using one or two of the Teas to highlight research by West House students, and in particular senior theses! If you’d like to present your work, please contact Ryan.C.Hickox@dartmouth.edu.
WEST HOUSE APPAREL AND INSIGNIA DESIGN
For Spring term we’ll be doing an order for more House merchandise; current ideas are fleeces, hoodies, T-shirts, baseball hats, PJ pants, and blankets. Every Westian will be able to order the specific item and size you like. Watch this space!
The House Council is currently in the process of setting up a full design process for official insignia for all six Houses, and we’re looking for your input on the official design for West House. We already got some ideas from the design submissions last spring, and will be looking for more by early/mid-April to include in the official design process. Of course, if you like our interim “elm tree” symbol (below) please let us know that as well, as we could possibly go with something similar for the final insignia. All ideas will be considered — watch this space!
Free HOP tickets
West House has available free tickets for House members to attend world-class performances at the Hopkins Center each term. A full list of shows for Spring term is available here. If you’d like tickets, please contact Pamela at Pamela.K.Duffy@dartmouth.edu.
STUDENT EXEC BOARD ELECTIONS
In the spring term we will be holding elections for the student Exec Board for 2017-18, to be run in concert with the SA election process. If interested, keep an eye on this space! There will be no Exec meeting this week during Finals.
