Every morning the Hopkins Center wakes and shakes off the night as students arrive for breakfast at the Courtyard Café and check their Hinman boxes. Through afternoon classes and evening rehearsals the Hop buzzes into the late hours—sometimes all night—with performances, 24-hour drawing marathons and, of course, Dartmouth Seven seekers.
