Favourite Photos of 2017

Favourite Photos of 2017

As the calendar year comes to an end, I thought I would round up my favourite photos of Dartmouth from 2017.

Walk on to Women’s Water Polo

Walk on to Women’s Water Polo

As a former (very burnt out) high school competitive swimmer, I came to Dartmouth thinking that I never wanted to jump into a pool again. That decision quickly changed when I met Hallie and PJ, two ’17s on the water polo team, my freshman fall. […]

No Competition: Why I Chose Dartmouth

No Competition: Why I Chose Dartmouth

I ran in high school. I had no talent beyond perseverance, but I loved it. If you talk to me for more than five minutes (or, evidently, read a single blog post) my enthusiasm will become apparent. With some optimism and much summer training, I […]

Chasing Tigers and the Green Monster

Chasing Tigers and the Green Monster

It’s been an busy time for Dartmouth Men’s Heavyweight Rowing over the past couple weeks. On October 29th  Dartmouth Heavies (including myself) traveled to Princeton for the annual Princeton Chase Regatta (hence chasing Tigers).  The race is about 3 miles, and it was pretty miserable, […]

Dartmouth’s Most Dartmouth-y Workouts

Dartmouth’s Most Dartmouth-y Workouts

I’ve always done my best to stay active, whether that meant playing sports, going to the gym, or just getting outside.  So when I started my college search, I wanted to find a place where I could indulge in vigorous academics whilst keeping up my […]

Running, Walking, Thriving

Running, Walking, Thriving

Dartmouth’s green this Sunday was overrun with superheroes. Red capes, Batman masks, and Wonder Woman crests were ubiquitous among the hundreds from across campus and the Upper Valley who raced or supported the CHaD Hero. A fundraiser for the children’s hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, […]

A Week in the Life

A Week in the Life

Another week done 😓 Though my midterms were last week, this week proved be another busy one–but here are some exciting highlights! Monday The week started off nice and slow. My Government 3 (The American Political System) didn’t meet, while my Government 86.25 (Adam Smith and […]

The Gentlemen’s Puck Club

The Gentlemen’s Puck Club

As somewhat of a devout hockey player, a good club team was always an important consideration during my college search, and Dartmouth presented perhaps the most opportunity out of any. I started playing when I was six years old, and since then, I’ve risen up […]

My Freshman Fall and The Climbing Wall

My Freshman Fall and The Climbing Wall

After a spectacular (and sweaty) week in the woods, I finally stepped off of the bus and back onto Robo Lawn. Trips were actually over. I had been having the time of my life but it went by so fast, and I already knew that […]

Hanover? Where is that?

Hanover? Where is that?

Without a doubt, Hanover is in the middle of nowhere–but that’s the beautiful part. To be honest, I hadn’t heard of Hanover, New Hampshire until I considered coming to Dartmouth.  But even as a self-proclaimed city person, my experience “in the woods” is something I […]

WHAT. A. GAME!

WHAT. A. GAME!

Don’t stop believin’ 🎵 These are not just the words to Journey’s most famous song, but also the motto that Dartmouth Football has embraced thus far in the season.  Last week, the Big Green defeated UPenn’s Quakers, scoring a touchdown as time expired. This weekend was homecoming, […]
