It turns out that Dartmouth’s annual tradition of building a huge snow sculpture in the middle of the Dartmouth Green has melted into a puddle. What’s the cause? Global climate change? Perhaps: there is no snow on the Green this year. But according to an article in The Dartmouth, the bigger issue is student apathy.
Quite sad. The sculpture my freshman year was of the Cat in the Hat driving a snow plow. On a Green that had no snow. Here’s a photo of it. Notice the lack of snow: it didn’t snow then, either. But somehow students rallied, “lest the old traditions fail.”
