Adventures Abroad

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 […]

Finding Dartmouth Connections All Over the World

Finding Dartmouth Connections All Over the World

Whenever I travel, I typically don a green Dartmouth baseball cap or my “Big Green” fleece. I do this for two reasons, the first being practicality (I swear that fleece is the softest, warmest item of clothing I own) and the second being my hope […]

Two Weeks in Southeast Asia

Two Weeks in Southeast Asia

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 […]

Not your typical internship: Studying global health in Kosovo

Not your typical internship: Studying global health in Kosovo

Prishtina, Kosovo: capital of a land-locked Balkan country full of seemingly incongruous sights.

Fluency, food, & family: My term abroad in France

France, Italy, New Zealand, China, Costa Rica: just a few of the places you can explore through Dartmouth study abroad. Naturally, the variety of programs offered and ease of going abroad (read: financial aid travels with you) attracted me to Dartmouth. That’s how, in the […]

Why Dartmouth: Volunteer Opportunities

Hello! My hope with this blog is to share a story about exploring some of the resources available at Dartmouth as early as freshman year. It begins with a visit to my First-Year Dean, Dean A’Ness, freshman spring. After visiting her office confused about what […]

How I’m Traveling the World with Dartmouth’s Experiential Learning Scholarship

Greetings from Santiago, Chile! Finals have ended, papers have been graded, and I’m excited (and nervous) to be spending this winter break working on an experiential learning project to research and promote female entrepreneurship and empowerment abroad! But before I dive into more of what […]

With so many of the Big Green athletic teams competing this term, it’s hard to decide which games and matches to attend each weekend. I’ve compiled a list of the top 6 home games I’ve been to, so far, this fall: Football vs. Holy Cross: […]
