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 […]

I-can-still-remember

I-can-still-remember

As my first term here is wrapping up, I think it would be fun to have a low-key I-can-still-remember post 🙂 I can still remember that moment when I parted with my best friend as I left South Station to get on the Dartmouth Coach. […]

Seven Standout Moments from Senior Fall

Hello there! My final fall at Dartmouth has come and gone, so allow me to share seven highlights of my term: HCroo I wrote an entire blog post about my experience with First Year Trips and my experience being a member of this team, but […]

Post-Exam Jams

Post-Exam Jams

There’s no feeling quite like walking out of your final exam or submitting your final paper. At Dartmouth, we enjoy a significant interim break between fall term and winter term (6 weeks!). Many students also elect to take winter term as their “off-term” and won’t […]

Finding Community as a First-Gen Student

Living Learning Communities: More Than Just a Dorm

Living Learning Communities: More Than Just a Dorm

When I first came to Dartmouth, I ended up stumbling rather serendipitously into something that has largely impacted my time here. That’s right, my first year at Dartmouth I *accidentally* applied to live in one of Dartmouth’s Living Learning Communities — application-based housing communities centered on […]

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 […]

Confessions of a Not-So-Typical Econ Major

According to the Center for Professional Development at Dartmouth, 50% of Dartmouth grads accepted job offers in the fields of consulting or finance last year. And, as an economics modified major, many people assume that I will also pursue a career in one of these […]

Spraining My Ankle Was The Best Thing Ever

Spraining My Ankle Was The Best Thing Ever

During O-Week — or orientation week — before my first fall term on campus, I managed the impossible. I sprained my ankle walking down a small incline on the way to the Choates, one of the freshman dorms on campus. I was on my way […]

Q: Where’s the best place to eat on campus? Any standout snacks?

Q: Where’s the best place to eat on campus? Any standout snacks?

A: My favourite place to eat on campus is at the ’53 Commons or Foco. I like to eat here because they have a good selection of gluten-free options (I have celiac) and it’s so fun to eat with all your friends. My favourite snacks […]
