The Life of a Grand Old Senior

Many Dartmouth student videos can be found on YouTube, but for some reason I thought this one more affecting than others. Timothy Brennan ‘17 put together an account of what he called, “A video a day from January 2017 to June 2017 encompassing my Dartmouth experience and the best time of my life”:

The three songs on the video are Home by Phillip Phillips, I Lived by OneRepublic, and Something Like This by the Chainsmokers and Cold Play.

Tim was a government major and Russian minor. Outside of academics, he was a four-year letter winner on the Dartmouth track and field team (captain in his junior and senior year). He was also a Chi Gamma Epsilon brother, serving as president in his senior year, and a participant in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, serving as co-captain when he was a senior. Tim is now working as a consultant for the Maia Strategy Group in Manchester, NH.

Addendum: Tim’s grandkids will get a kick out of this video one day. As will Tim when he watches it with them. (“Grandpa, why are all those cups on the ping pong table?”)

Addendum: An alumnus writes in:

Wow, this is the most awesome video I’ve seen coming out of Dartmouth in years! As a former Dartmouth trackster and frat member, this brings back glorious memories in a fantastic way !

Thanks, Timothy Brennan ‘17 for producing this, and thanks, Joe Asch for sharing this. May the special flavor of Dartmouth life that Timothy B. has captured so well forever be extant at Dartmouth.
