Exploring Dartmouth 2,000 feet up

  As someone who never really (read: never) hiked before stepping foot on Dartmouth’s campus, the idea of going to a school so well-known for its beautiful surrounding mountains and outdoors activities both excited and terrified me. I’ve always loved the outdoors and enjoyed being outside, […]

Summer School is not punishment

Summer School is not punishment

The especially cold days here in the northeast have me yearning for summer: Sophomore Summer, specifically. Dartmouth’s academic calendar, the D-Plan as we call it, requires all students to be on campus taking classes during the summer term between their sophomore and junior years. As […]

From Footballs to Snowballs

Today was the first day in weeks that it’s snowed in Hanover, and it’s been an adventure to say the least. I’m currently writing this post after surviving the treacherous ride back from Boston amidst a snowstorm, which I promise is twice as intense when […]

Ode to the Collis Smoothie

This post is dedicated to one of the little things that has had a surprisingly big affect on my college experience. It was fall of 2014 (my first term at Dartmouth), and I soon discovered Collis Cafe (Dartmouth’s most acclaimed dining option). Collis is a […]
