Dartmouth College publications
The Aegis (pronounced EE-jus) is Dartmouth College's award-winning yearbook. Published annually, the Aegis covers campus events, student life, student organizations, sports, academics, and seniors.
The Aegis' mission statement, as stated in the Aegis Constitution:
The Aegis exists at Dartmouth College because it is strongly felt that there is a need for a pictorial account of life on the Hanover Plain. The Aegis shall not be grandiloquent, but the effort is to be made to capture a bit of the splendor, the agony, the triumph, the discouragement --- the green grass, the white snow, the brown mud, and the uniqueness of personage who find in it all something to carry away. As a piece of worthy public relations and proud memorabilia, The Aegis is a valuable and concrete record of a year on campus. And thus it is that The Aegis helps to save a bit of what Dartmouth is every year. The Aegis occupies a position of traditional luxury, and Dartmouth College has none other quite like it.
The 1994, 2008, 2009 and 2010 Aegis won the Benny or Best of Category award, given to the best yearbook in the nation by the Printing Industries of America, Inc. based on high standards of print and design. The Aegis was the first college yearbook in the nation to have won the Benny three times consecutively.

Dartmouth Jack O'Lantern
The Dartmouth Jack O'Lantern is one of the nation's oldest collegiate humor magazines, founded in 1908. The magazine, which boasts that it is Dartmouth’s “only intentional humor magazine,” is based in Robinson Hall, and its staff has famously pulled off numerous pranks. Many celebrated writers, artists, comedians and politicians began their careers at the "Jacko", as it is often called, including: Theodor Geisel (who first took the name Seuss as a pseudonym so that he could continue to work on the Jack O’Lantern after he was banned from participating in college activities for violating Prohibition. After graduating, he felt his alter ego deserved a degree as well, and began signing his artwork 'Dr. Seuss'), Chris Miller (who based his short stories in National Lampoon on his undergraduate experiences at Dartmouth College, and subsequently turned them into the movie Animal House), Norman MacLean, Buck Henry, and Robert Reich. The magazine was referenced in the opening line of F. Scott Fitzgerald's short story The Lost Decade, which was first published in Esquire in 1939. The Jack O'Lantern's website is available here.
