Fantastics AOs and Where to Find Them

Fantastics AOs and Where to Find Them

When I was in high school, I thought I knew all I needed to know about college admissions officers from Gilmore Girls — admissions officers sat around in drafty wood paneled conference rooms, dishing out our fates from a smoky void, not found on any map. […]

Popping the Dartmouth Bubble

Popping the Dartmouth Bubble

Dartmouth is a generally wonderful place, but during the hustle and bustle of the term, it’s all too easy to get encapsulated in the “Dartmouth Bubble.” This is a term coined on campus to describe a sort of tunnel vision where students lose track of […]

Haw-aii ended up in Hawaii: Part 1

Last year, I was lucky enough to go on a Dartmouth Outing Club Spring Break trip to Hawaii!! How did I get so lucky? Firstly, the Dartmouth Outing Club, the country’s oldest and largest collegiate outing group, is the formal organization that hosts most of […]

Coldness and Boldness

Coldness and Boldness

I remember the brisk, final days of winter term; late November winds blew across campus and every student scrambled to cut through every warm building to avoid the (barely) freezing temperatures, including myself. But now I’m here laughing, wondering what had ever gotten to me, […]

Winter Carnival ideas for people who don’t like winter

Winter Carnival ideas for people who don’t like winter

Unpopular Dartmouth opinion: I am not a huge fan of the cold. I don’t know how to ski or snowboard, and I think it’s absolutely frigid when the temps drop below 30 degrees Fahrenheit. That means, out of the three “big weekends” at Dartmouth (Homecoming, […]

You went to the Balkans?

You went to the Balkans?

 Yes, yes I did. Similar to Adina’s internship made possible by the Dickey Center’s  Global Health Internship Program, I had the opportunity to study at the Rochester Institute of Technology Kosovo (RIT Kosovo) and intern at the Kosovo Property Agency (KPA) in the summer of 2016 […]

This Week in SART 65

This Week in SART 65

Welcome to Week 4! It’s crazy to think that winter term is already half way over! The days are flying by and I am really enjoying my classes. In one of my classes, SART 65 (Architecture 1), we had our first project due on Tuesday. […]

Winter wonderland

Winter wonderland

While my definition of winter back home is when the temperature gets below 18 degree Celsius, winter at Dartmouth looks wayyyyy different. And except the (somewhat) awful cold and the black ice, I really enjoy the frosty beauty around campus. And if you’re an Instagram […]

Is it easy to make friends at Dartmouth? What aspects of Dartmouth promote close friendships?

Is it easy to make friends at Dartmouth? What aspects of Dartmouth promote close friendships?

Most of my close friendships at Dartmouth have been formed through joining different clubs or groups I was interested in. For me, joining the women’s water polo club team my freshman fall introduced me to a community that’s been my go-to  throughout my four years […]

‘Tis the season to be sledding

‘Tis the season to be sledding

It can be easy to spend the weekend holed up in the library during the day, as many Dartmouth students know. But it’s important to remember that we go to school in a special place, a place that magically transforms itself once fall turns into […]

Lost In Translation – Intro

Lost In Translation – Intro

¿Dartmouth College? ¿O sea, un colegio? ¿Qué no aplicaste a la universidad? Dartmouth College? So… a college? Weren’t you applying to universities, not colleges? That’s one of the first things my mom said after I received my admissions letter. To be quite honest, I didn’t […]

“From my first moment on campus, Dartmouth swaddled me in rolling mountains and lazy rivers. Its coziness felt like home.”
