Introduction

Founded in 1975, Fire & Skoal, is Dartmouth's first coeducational senior society. The society was established to create an environment where a small group of seniors could discuss the ever-changing political, economic and social issues of the time, and to provide tomorrow's leaders a way to be actively involved in dealing with these changes. In fall of 1978, Fire & Skoal acquired the house at 29 S. Park Street as its residence. Fire and Skoal is a non-secret society and has about 30 members, chosen annually by the existing class' delegation.
