What do first years do on their first weekend here?

I wasn’t sure how I would spend my weekends when I got to Dartmouth, but it was busy right away! Here are a couple things I’ve done so far: 1. Go stargazing at the Golf Course: It was a spur of the moment, when I and […]

Hanover? Where is that?

Hanover? Where is that?

Without a doubt, Hanover is in the middle of nowhere–but that’s the beautiful part. To be honest, I hadn’t heard of Hanover, New Hampshire until I considered coming to Dartmouth.  But even as a self-proclaimed city person, my experience “in the woods” is something I […]

In the Middle of Everywhere

In the Middle of Everywhere

Have you ever encountered family friends in the supermarket who ask how your year is going? They’re interested, they want to hear about your life, but they want to hear about it for twenty seconds and then return to their shopping. In those situations, my […]

From Farmer’s Market to Table

From the moment students step foot onto Dartmouth’s Campus in the fall as freshmen, they hear people buzz about Hanover’s local farmers market. Every Wednesday on the middle of the Green from 3:00 to 6:00 PM vendors from the Upper Valley region set up their […]

Dartmouth Away From Dartmouth

This term I’ve taken advantage of the awesome opportunity to study abroad in Rome with the Frank Guarini LSA+ program. This means that I’m taking Italian 8, 10, and 12 right now while living with a host family in the Esquiline quarter of the city. […]

14 Winter Week 1

Dartmouth is a winter wonderland. Being back for my first winter term has been amazing so far, despite of how worried I was about the long Hanover winter. Turns out that winter time here is fun, manageable, and surprisingly bright. With the exception of a […]

Life after finals

Hey everyone.  Right now, I’m done with all my final papers and exams, so I’m just hanging out in Hanover with my friends who are still here.  In fact, I even changed around my travel plans such that I leave on Thursday (instead of Monday)–that’s […]

Thanksgiving – Take One

Being an international student, I wasn’t able to go home for Thanksgiving. Spending 20+hours in a plane and at airports, with 6 hours jetlag each way, for only a five day break is a little excessive for a holiday that my family doesn’t even celebrate. […]
