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. […]

It was a fateful day in early august. My phone had already been buzzing relentlessly from GroupMe messages and Facebook notifications, so I stepped out of work to finally see what all of the hype was about. I was instantly met with a present surprise: […]

Looking for My Niche: Diaries of an Ex-Debater

Sleep Deprived

Wednesday morning, September 21, 4:30 am. In just over four hours, my first day of classes at Dartmouth will officially begin. I’m sitting on the red circular seat at the entrance of the Hop, which I’m convinced is simply wood with one layer of upholstery […]
