Five Small(ish) Reasons I Chose Dartmouth

Five Small(ish) Reasons I Chose Dartmouth

Wedding cake, yogurt parfaits, Super Bowl dip — all kinds of delicacies come in layers. Why shouldn’t decisions? My senior year of high school, I knew I wanted a small liberal arts school with strong academics and curious students. I knew I wanted a rural […]

Last spring break I went to Hawaii on an EPIC DOC hiking trip! For more information on how that came about, check out part 1 of this blog post. Here are some unexpected things I did on this trip: Hike… A LOT!! Maybe this should […]

Life as a Chinese Major

Life as a Chinese Major

As both an Economics and Chinese major, I sometimes feel like I have a dual academic identity — one part of which is business and numbers-driven and another part that’s  focused more heavily on the social sciences and on developing a working understanding of another […]

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 […]

Students Helping Students (How I Landed My Dream Internship)

How Dartmouth has spoiled me

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 […]

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. Mosques and churches live on the same street, clothing stores sell luxurious gowns while unemployment remains high, and citizens often praise American politicians more than local policymakers.

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

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 […]
