Excerpt from Freshman History of the Class of Eighty: Dartmouth College, for 1876-7

The Centennial and the formation of the class of '80 took place in one and the same year. Would it be asserting too much to say they were a complete success? Voices from every direction tell me No! and may the future sustain the statement.

Hanover became acquainted with several of our men the Commencement week of '76, but we were first represented as a class at the beginning of the fall term. The majority entered on certificates stating what each was supposed to know. A few had the audacity to pass examinations. The first day was spent in procuring and arranging rooms and taking first lessons in "cheek" from the hucksters and venders of furniture, et cetera. The carefully folded "greenbax" went from us, one by one. The day was exceedingly warm and during the forenoon Sophomores were very attentive indeed, freely giving advice here, and helping there. The merits and demerits of the societies seemed the most interesting - to them at least. As the day wore away we were gradually deserted and an intense stillness brooded over all things, portending some grand event, what, we knew not. The shades of evening were quietly settling down and all nature seemed hushed in Sabbath repose, when a yell, piercing and terrible, rent the air near the upper corner of the campus, at the same moment Rev. Dr. Leeds was returning thanks in the prayer-meeting that "the students were again engaged with their accustomed duties." This particular "duty" was attended with considerable confusion.
