Dreams of Sedona

Dreams of Sedona

A Cabin and Trail break trip to remember. I’m a Northeasterner in every regard; from the people to the climate, every aspect of it has always seemed to suit me like no place else. I can’t say that I really had to opportunity to travel […]

30 Questions to Ask on a College Visit

Happy MLK weekend! Many of you might utilize this long weekend to visit colleges (Dartmouth will be open tomorrow!), and whether you’re visiting one school or several, it’s important to be strategic during your visits. College visits are a very exciting opportunity to explore a potential […]

Is It Too Late Now To Say Sorry?

Is It Too Late Now To Say Sorry?

After 25 hours of travel (thanks, winter storm Grayson!) I’ve finally made it to campus after a much-needed winter break. This break, however, made me realize that I’m less than a year and a half away from graduation. Needless to say, I had a mid-mid-life […]

(Win)ter Break

(Win)ter Break

Thrilled as I was to leave behind school bells for stuffing and jingle bells, classes hung heavy over high school vacations. Master of procrastination, I avoided AP US History chapters or math problem sets until the last moment possible (when all hell broke loose). Nevertheless, […]

A Year in Review

A Year in Review

Happy New Year! As we look back at 2017, it’s incredible to think that I’ve spent the last 365 days as a Dartmouth student. A majority of that time was spent on campus in Hanover or with friends that I met at school. Here’s a […]

A Winter Wonderland

A Winter Wonderland

Dartmouth is an incredible place to be in the winter. Yes, the temperatures may dip below zero, but can you honestly say you wouldn’t like to see images like this everyday? For those of you who have never seen real snow, you’re in for a […]

How Dartmouth has spoiled me

I’m back again, peeps! My break was awesome, as I could both go home and travel to New Orleans, Boston, and New York with my friends! Other than the fact that I didn’t do any of my winter reading, so now I’m low-key cramming an […]

Human-Centered Design…What’s That?

Human-Centered Design…What’s That?

If you’ve read my intro post, then you might already know that I am pursuing a minor in Human-Centered Design through the Thayer School of Engineering. But whenever I tell anybody that I’m a Human-Centered Design minor, I usually get hit with some form of […]

Welcome Back to Dartmouth/The North Pole

Welcome Back to Dartmouth/The North Pole

Let’s make one thing clear: I’m not a fan of the cold. Not because I do not enjoy being cold (which I do not), but I quite literally am not built for it — I was born in the Dominican Republic where the average temperature […]

A message to my dear Californians

A message to my dear Californians

I was recently asked what my favorite thing about Hanover in the winter is, and I’ll admit that, given that it was -23 degrees this morning, most of the answers that sprang to mind were pessimistic. “One day it will be over?” “Scraping ice off […]

What happened after I hit “submit”

What happened after I hit “submit”

Last I left you, I was discussing my college checklist and how I ended up applying to Dartmouth on a whim. (If you haven’t already, read this blog post before continuing). Shortly after submitting my application, I was contacted by an alum for an interview. […]
