How to Deal With Getting Sick at College

It’s week nine, finals are looming, papers are due, and I have fallen victim to the latest round of illness to circle campus. That’s right, I’m sick and it sucks. Because Dartmouth operates on a 10-week term system rather than a semester system, courses are […]

6 Favourite Sports Games I Went to This Fall

With so many of the Big Green athletic teams competing this term, it’s hard to decide which games and matches to attend each weekend. I’ve compiled a list of the top 6 home games I’ve been to, so far, this fall: Football vs. Holy Cross: […]

The Gentlemen’s Puck Club

The Gentlemen’s Puck Club

As somewhat of a devout hockey player, a good club team was always an important consideration during my college search, and Dartmouth presented perhaps the most opportunity out of any. I started playing when I was six years old, and since then, I’ve risen up […]

Meet My Floor

Meet My Floor

When I got my housing assignment for this year, I was super pumped. I was excited that I got my own room and that I was living in a dorm, Topliff, that was close to the gym.
