  • June 29, 2009: Welcome to Sophomore Summer — Welcome, '11's, to that interlude at Dartmouth when you are "rising juniors." And warm greetings to all those women in science from other classes who are sharing the campus and labs with you this summer! Congratulations to you all on declaring majors in disciplines that will challenge, intrigue, and satisfy your intellectual appetites both now and in the future! This summer is an excellent time to explore, plan, prepare, and get acquainted:
    • Explore the opportunities and resources that lie waiting for you on and off-campus for leave-term internships, networking with professionals, grad students, and faculty.
    • Thoughtfully lay out a plan and a strategy for your next two years and beyond. The faculty, your class dean, the Office of Undergraduate Research, Career Services and WISP staff are all willing to be sounding boards for your plans and aspirations. Get in touch with us! Our doors are open.
    • Plans become reality when you adequately prepare yourself and set achievable goals and timelines.
    • Finally, getting acquainted with your science peers is one of the most powerful things you can do to assist you during the next two years.  Peers share and support your sentiments about science and engineering, your aspirations, and your fears; they experience your highs and lows, and your problem sets! You are assets to each other! Get off to a good start this summer!
